I have been using Hostgator WordPress hosting for a long time and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a WordPress hosting. Some of our Internet Marketing training students get confused when they register domain name with Godaddy because Godaddy also offers web hosting service. Is there any difference between Godaddy and Hostagtor WordPress hosting? In this blog, I am going to share with you why you should choose Hostgator WordPress hosting.
Hostgator WordPress Hosting Has The Best Technical Support
Hostgator started its web hosting business in 2002. Now it supports over 8 million domains. Hostgator WordPress hosting service is reliable with guaranteed 99.9% uptime and the price is reasonable. I would strongly recommend you to choose the Baby Plan and sign up for one year. In this way, you get the biggest discount. This plan offers unlimited domains, unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth. It means that you can host multiple domains in just one single web hosting account without paying an extra penny!
HostGator provides 24/7 FREE technical support via toll-free telephone, live chat, email and ticket system. The representatives are well-trained, experienced and friendly. They are all WordPress experts and can quickly trouble shoot almost any WordPress related issues. It is quite amazing.
About a month ago, I upgraded a couple of WordPress plugins. One of them was WordPress Popular Posts. All plugins were upgraded successfully according to the message returned. The next day, when I was about to show my website to our students in the class, I noticed that something was wrong with the website and I could not open any pages. The error message said there was something to do with the database. I had no idea what was wrong and could not trouble shoot in the class. I asked my husband Oliver to contact Hostgator. He did right away and the problem was fixed in a couple of minutes. The culprit was WordPress Popular Post plugin. The superior customer service is one of the reasons I have stayed with Hostgator for so long. It is especially important and helpful for anyone who has little IT background and new to WordPress platform.
GoDaddy is the No. 1 domain name registrar in the world. But its web hosting service is never as competitive as its domain registration service. The recent hacker attack brought GoDaddy’s servers temporarily offline on Sept 10th. Thousands and possibly millions of websites were affected. According to Foxnews, GoDaddy should be protected against such a simple web assault — a DDoS attack involves an overwhelming flood of communication that a server can’t keep up with.
Bloggers Love Hostgator WordPress Hosting the Best
If you think using Hostgator WordPress hosting is just my personal preference, let’s take a look at what other bloggers’ opinion. Over the past month, Blogging.org has surveyed over 5600 different bloggers about their top hosting provider and compiled a comprehensive report of “Top 25 Hosting Companies” for bloggers.
As you can see, Hostgator Wodpress hosting is the winner! It is the No.1 hosting company for bloggers in the world. Unfortunately, Godaddy ranks No. 18. What I suggest is that you register your domain name with Godaddy and use Hostgator WordPress hosting to host your website.
Besides Hostgator Wodrpess hosting, Bluehost is also an excellent alternative to many people who want to try something different. To me, Hostgator and Bluehost are pretty much the same. You can choose either one. Learn how to register your domain name and web hosting in 10 minutes.
