Hostgator has three types of hosting plans: reseller hosting, VPS and dedicated servers. These three plans offer hosting services to meet the individual needs of their customer base. Each plan allows customers a certain amount of free applications as well as unlimited disc space and bandwidth. They differ in what each is capable of doing. This Hostgator hosting plans review will inform you and help you decide which plan is right for you.
A VPS (Virtual Private Server) is meant to bridge the gap between a shared server and a dedicated server. It meets the needs of those who want the benefit of a dedicated server but at a cheaper price. Hostgator VPS comes with e-mail and web services provided by some of the top names in the business such as Comcast, Microsoft and Time Warner. One reviewer said that they signed up for the VPS package full of doubts. They knew that there was no way the company could provide all that they had promised. He said that they delivered and he happily had to eat his words.
A dedicated server is set up for those businesses that have high demands (traffic, need for speed, etc.) While pricey, a dedicated server package gets you your very own server that you don’t have to share with anyone else. The benefits of a dedicated server include high speed internet and the ability to handle large amounts of traffic. Dedicated servers allow the user to have more control over what is happening at their site. They can monitor usage, error reports and run times. There are four different dedicated server packages ranging in price from $139/month to $299/month. Each package comes with an Intel core and a free control panel. The difference in price is because each package offers a different amount of memory and a different number of cores. One Hostgator hosting plans review said that one customer reported having three servers. This customer said that they enjoy high speed times even during high usage. They have remained a customer for years.
Reseller hosting is meant for those starting up their own hosting business. With this plan, the customer uses Hostgator servers to host their customers. Hostgator reselling starts at under $20.00 a month. This package comes with free control panel so that customers can see what is happening with their sites. Unlimited domains and disc space enables these new businesses to grow. Customers that have given reviews state that the set up wizard is a bit hard to understand at first. But, with a little patience they caught on fast. All customers report a run time of 99.9%, even during peak hours. All customers gave Hostgator high rankings and said that they regularly recommend Hostgator to their friends and business associates.
All packages come with a 45 day money back guarantee. Customer support is reported as being superb, with the staff being knowledgeable. Customers report that any problems they have had in the past were handled right away in an efficient manner.
