I am a customer of HostGator. I have been with HostGator since December, 2009. In the last four and half years, I have had some good experiences with HostGator and some bad experiences. So I am going to share my journey with HostGator in this web site.

When I opened my hosting account at HostGator, I was not sure how long I am going to stay with HostGator. I already had one hosting account at DreamHost. I was happy with DreamHost service. So I really did not need another hosting account. I opened HostGator account because I wanted to test the service and performance of the HostGator Company.

In the beginning time, I had some issues with HostGator for setting up my web site. So I contacted the HostGator support team and my problem was fixed. After that everything has gone smooth. In the journey of four and half years, I rarely had to contact the support team of HostGator.
