Shopping at Hostgator
Host Gator is a top ten web host that prides itself in high quality Customer Service. All web hosting plans come with 24/7/365 Customer Support, available via phone, email, or live chat, and Host Gator even claims that any dissatisfied customer can speak to their CEO, Alex, upon request.
Host Gator offers three primary hosting plans.
For beginners, Host Gator offers what they call their Hatchling Plan. The Hatchling Plan costs only $3.96 per month, comes with a single domain name, and provides users with unlimited bandwidth and disk space.
At a step up from The Hatchling Plan, Host Gator also offers a The Baby Plan. The Baby Plan costs $6.36 per month and is almost identical to The Hatchling Plan, except for that it provides users with the ability to use unlimited domain names – a feature quite useful to the fledgling small business owner.
Of course for those serious internet entrepreneurs, Host Gator does also offer its Business Plan, which comes with additional e-Commerce features. For $10.36 per month, users who purchase Host Gator’s Business Plan receive everything they would with The Hatchling or Baby Plan, and also their own Toll-Free Number, a Free Dedicated IP, and a Free Private SSL.
It’s also worth mentioning that all Host Gator plans are currently available at a 20% discount and that all plans come with $100 worth of Google AdWords credit, activated after the user spends $25.
Promotional offers like these, along with pretty reasonable monthly rates make Host Gator a very cost effective way for everyday people and small business owners alike to enter the world of e-Commerce.
