I don’t put my stamp of approval on too many things, but I do need to tell you about the hosting that I use and highly recommend – HostGator.
I have been on the web for over 10 years now, and seen a lot of hosting companies come and go, and used several. Never have I had the experience that I have had with HostGator. It’s been, in a word, fantastic.
Number one, their support has been great. I have experienced a handful of isolated problems over the last 3 years I’ve been with them, and all were handled promptly, professionally, and FAST. There’s nothing worse than having a client call in the middle of the night crying, “my site is down!” In those situations, I need the problem handled quickly, and HostGator has never let me down.
What a hosting company can do for me is important. I need technical goodies, I need plenty of bandwidth and storage space, and I don’t need to be nitpicked over how many databases I use. HostGator shines in that department. Unlimited storage, unlimited domains, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited MySQL databases. Of course, ‘unlimited’ doesn’t always mean unlimited. If your account starts hogging server resources, you’ll garner some attention.
That said, I’ve never had it be an issue. On one of my Baby accounts, I run 35 sites. Admittedly, they’re not high-volume super popular sites, but they get their share of traffic.
