Sometimes you have to pay more

May 14 2012

I am not a beginner with having websites. I have been doing this for over 15 years, which in computer time is a lot. My websites that I switched over to host gator are not down very often. I have had the joy of talking to people that speak my language(English) when I needed tech support. They also had a good understanding of what my problems were when I had them. If you have the choice, pay a little more instead of having to deal with all the headaches.

Support was iffy

Jun 2 2012

The up time was OK and I was pleased with how quickly my technical issues were resolved.. The Cpanel worked well for what I needed. For 5 years I was happy with my service. I did have some serious trouble though after I made a mistake myself. I mistakenly created a few accounts and was not able to delete them. That should not have happened, so was the first big issue. They have my creidt card on file and instead of allowing me to delete these mistaken accounts they charged my card. I went back and forth with tehm over this iwas promised a part refund of the charges. It took almost a month to even get that.

Unhappy with service

May 1 2012

Using their plexk panel was way to difficult. I was not happy with the windows hosting service. They have so much cotrol and it makes things hard to get done or get changed.

host gator

May 23 2012

My experience with hostgator has been generally fine, there have been issues but quick resolutions have helped. Everyone here seems to pull together for the customer so that's a good thing.

Disappointed

Apr 5 2012

I heard good reviews so I tried them. They are currently hosting my site but it looks like I have to switch. I constantly get database errors. Tech support says it is because their servers are busy and I have to upgrade my account. I have to upgrade and pay more because your servers are too busy? Maybe they used to be good but my experience over the past 6 months has not been good. I don't want to go through the hassle of switching hosts but it looks like they are giving me no choice.
