Why I chose Hostgator

There are many reasons to why I choose HostGator but I will have to say the main reason was the amount of helpful/useful information that is available online. May it be from simple how to set up a HostGator account to more complex server based problems. The HostGator community is quite large and you will most certainly find an answer to any problem you might encounter.

Shared Hosting

I went with the Shared Hosting option offered by HostGator, because my website is rather small and doesn’t receive a large amount of traffic. The Shared Hosting option is ideal for beginners and small to medium size websites as it offers hosting at a lower price compare to the other options.
