HostGator Green Hosting

HostGator Green Hosting

Hostgator is just one of the largest internet hosting companies in the world with near to 2 million domain names held on shared and reseller accounts. They were formed in 2002 and has more than 5000 servers under their administration.

They are mainly a monthly plan internet host and provide hosting accounts starting at 5 dollars a month and climbing to 13 for a basic business hosting account, which is certainly budget friendly for everyone.

The hosting plans are totally flexible and all of them offer unrestricted domain names, bandwidth and disk storage. The accounts additionally all included CGI, PHP 5, Perl, Ruby on Rails, MySQL databases, SSH access, SSL, IMAP and POP for email access along with Cpanel to manage your hosting account.

Now, all this stuff is terrific, but also for me there are 2 things that make Hostgator the host for me.

The very first is the high degree of service, even though the accounts are shared the server response rates are excellent and I should I need to, I could easily get in touch with the help team swiftly, either by the chat feature, by phone or e-mail.

You also do not need to sign an agreement when you subscribe, suggesting you could change your mind at any moment and they provide a refund guarantee for up to 45 days. This is key as it actually shows their assurance in their own service.

Secondly is that Hostgator are a green company. I am very ecologically minded and it was fantastic to find out that they make use of the most efficient hosting servers of which those hosting servers are powered entirely by sustainable wind generated electricity.

It’s wonderful for me to be able to use a good solid hosting firm that is also dedicated to the environment and to helping protect our earth. For these factors, I feel pleased to suggest Hostgator.
