Important point to be noted: As like other companies they do have restriction when they say unlimited, Even they mention that there is no particular limit on disk usage or bandwidth unless its compliance with their terms of use. Typically, customers only run into issues if they use their accounts for storage or file sharing, which is not what our services are intended to support. You will be given a prior notice If you do cross any limitation If the site is over crossed the limit you can upgrade for their VPS servers, the link for their VPS servers given below.

HostGator website builder:

They provide DIY site builder and parallel Plesk site builder. It helps with all the technical parts of website creation, you can easily  upload your content, images and build your website with no hassles.

SiteBuilder has its own built-in templates. In SiteBuilder, your website is limited to 99 pages.

They  provide WYSIWYG, It’s a type of HTML editor that lets you make webpages without requiring HTML coding. Instead you simply insert pictures, text, links, and colors.

Both site builders  use wysiwyg, as well as the HTML Editor which can be found in their C Panel. We have covered more on their site builder in our other page, you can go through the same.

 

After going through their  plans and other features lets discuss about their technical support and uptime:

When it comes to their support they ensure instant tech  support through call, live chat and ticket system. There is a forum website of theirs forum.hostgator.in which you can scroll down for any of  your support issues. Their sales team or tech persons are very friendly but I found there is some delay in the response for some time which is not a troublesome end of the day the query got answered.

They provide automatic free weekly data back up facility, so no need to panic if something wrong goes with your website the data is safe. Each time you put a query on youtube most of the times you get some hostgator videos on how tos, s they have made around 500+ videos on how to use their features and several articles to support the same.

Uptime:

They also offer cloud fare faacility, any one can enable through c panel, Its a FREE system that acts as a proxy between your visitors and our server. By acting as a proxy, CloudFlare caches static content for your site, which lowers the number of requests to our servers, but still allows visitors to access your site.

you can find one of the websites uptime tracked which is hosted under their servers:

 

Money back guarantee:

Gators provides a full amount 45 days money back, If you are not fully satisfied by their service you will be given complete amount refund within the first 45 days,  they are been offering too much time to check out their service and its Valid only on shared, VPS and reseller, not on additional services.

Final conclusion on HostGator:

HostGator no doubt is one of the popular brand in terms of shared and VPS server, even their reseller plans not to miss out. Hostgator has a quality hosting they certainly had offered 99% uptime till now, no doubt, they are proven consistent in their server uptime and performance.

saying all these things has one draw back which is price, those who doesnt look on price and only look upon the quality of the service, uptime and reliabilit can really opt their plans.
