SO, IS HOSTGATOR GOOD ENOUGH?
Unlike a lot of its competition Hostgator, true to its name, focuses on providing hosting solutions and that’s about it. A lot of modern low cost hosting solutions attempt to offer a little bit of everything. They try and offer hosting and a fully functional domain purchasing system, they try and offer shopping carts and advanced e-commerce solutions while simultaneously trying to offer online business advising, SEO and other marketing solutions.
Often these other companies fail due to their far-reaching ambition. They fail because they try and offer everything and end up offering nothing of real value. It doesn’t matter if a web hosting company also offers a fully integrated shopping cart solution for an up charge if you can subscribe to a superior third party solution for less money.
If you read my Hostgator Hosting Review you will see I find Hostgator is far superior to a lot of other web hosting products or you can read my comparisons of Hostgator to Godaddy, Bluehost and Dreamhost.
