Hostgator is a highly recommended hosting account by many professionals because it offers high-performance servers at a reasonable price, so you don’t have to fight over the compared prices.
One of the things which we have liked about Hostgator is that they offer discounts every month, which starts from 30% to 50%, which is possible because we have used it in the past.
The highest discount they provide is on black Friday, and the discount goes up to 80%, it has happened two times in last years, so we implore you to buy at black Friday.
Then again, Hostgator is also Endurance International Group, which owns almost every major hosting company in the industry.
Now, although Endurance International Group is the major shareholder of the company, they do not have control over the servers, or they favor other sub-companies like Bluehost to give it sales boost.
But, this is something every user to know that if you are buying at Hostgator during seasonal occasions, then the chances of the server you are getting is not from the Hostgator.
It has happened to us, we purchased shared hosting at 50% discount, but the nameservers were not of Hostgator, which has surprised us.
When we did some research on it, we found that Endurance International Group holds the ownership of the non-Hostgator company.
How do you save yourself from it?
Call the customer care before you order because you can get the details of the server. Remember, Hostgator does not have 30-days money back guarantee, so there will be no refund if things do not work.
Reseller Hosting Pricing:

First of all, do not buy a domain from Hostgator, if you want to save money.
Second, according to us, WordPress hosting is expensive, while you get better WordPress hosting package with same features & performance from Bluehost much lesser than Hostgator.
After one year of the period, the company will charge you 2x fee for WordPress hosting account.
The truth about Hostgator & Bluehost, those who don’t know both companies are the same.
Except, Hostgator is much more expensive than BlueHost, however, did you know that these companies share the same customer care (Only chat)?
Despite the popularity and performance of Hostgator, you should go for Bluehost because it’s cheaper and they both are the same.
After using Hostgator for a year to host multiple websites, we can tell you things only a customer can reveal about it.
Hostgator is available in various countries, so you won’t have much of problem when it comes to language, at least that’s not the problem in India.
Most of the executives are from India, so many of them can speak the fluent native language, so language should not be a barrier.
Hostgator has two teams, the first take care of the regular problems like errors, queries, and another simple task, which is common & frequent issues they face on a regular basis.
The second team is the technical team, who will take care of the in-depth of WordPress, Joomla, CSS, HTML5, and web applications knowledge.
What we have noticed about the Hostgator is that they have less number of technical people in their customer care when compared to non-technical employees.
This should not be a problem because the technical team is available in rotational shifts; you will get transferred if the problem persists.
