Overall HostGator is a great hosting company. It’s definitely one of the biggest in the industry, but is generally well regarded, and is a great, affordable place for most bloggers to get started.

We highly recommend their shared hosting for smaller sites and blogs, but as you start getting into much larger websites and traffic loads, other hosting providers become better options.

They also have quite a wide range of Hosting solutions, including shared hosting, dedicated servers, VPS servers, Cloud hosting, and much more. They are also hosting company you can scale as large as you want with, without having to leave.

We think the best bang for your buck is actually in the cheaper hosting with HostGator. With shared hosting plans starting at just a few dollars per month, it’s hard to go wrong with this company. Once you get to the larger traffic levels, there are better options that we would recommend, but for almost anything that most bloggers we’ll see, HostGator will be a great hosting provider.

They are also most often compared to A2 Hosting, Bluehost and GoDaddy.
