I am unable to decide on a hosting plan at Hostgator? Can anyone help me on this?
I think the baby plan is a good deal if you are just starting out. Its cheap and does everything you need it to do.
I have the "baby plan" and have yet to hit a problem with it.
I have about eight domains on it at the moment.
If you can afford it then the Business plan is the best deal and normally has a discount if you get a year or whatever. You will find that you want loads of sub-domains after you get started and they are free with the business plan.
You get all that with Baby Plan. The only difference between the top level and moderate (Baby) level web hosting plans on Hostgator is that the top level one gives you a private SSL Certificate, instead of a shared one, and it gives you a unique IP.
Sorry...I use Bluehost so I'm of no help. Good luck with your sites though!
I have never used Blue Host, but have always heard good things about it!
I personally would always recommend Hostgator simply because of their customer service, those guys have even helped me code PHP. Above and beyond is the reason I am happy to keep sending htem my money.
I have heard a lot of great things about Hostgator but I actually LOVE the customer service at Bluehost. I had my share of issues for a while and interestingly...they always understood what I was asking even when my question sounded like complete gibberish even on my end. lol
I have had the same experience with HostGator. They host my main business web site, and they have always been very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend them. I have a hatching package and my web site is over 600 pages.
The test is when your requests become more complicated. GoDaddy will fail every time, Host Gator is awesome and always does far beyond what I would expect, I have a client with BlueHost, he made an edit that took down his site and BlueHost was able to correct it for him (he played with a function.php file) - very simple fix, but its commendable that they were willing to do the work for him.
I just bought the baby plan for mine too. I was going hatchling, because that sounds cooler than a baby (which I'm sure is by design to get you up to the next one and probably works on a lot of people). But Hostgator is great so far and totally easy.
Anyone who knows me on HP can verify how retarded I am with technical stuff and yet even I was able to get my site up and at least running in a most rudimentary state.
I was not too thrilled for several reasons with hostgator. The tech knowledge was very basic. So, I went to Aplus.net, who I don't recommend anyone use. Hostgator was a dream compared to them. I now use a local company by the name of yourwebpro.biz. The cost is 14.99 per month, but I have had no trouble, great personable service any time and technical assistance and my Alexa rating went from 5,000,000 to the low 2 millions globally and 300,000 locally. This is all within a month.
I have learned that you get what you pay for with hosting service. In addition, my site passes the W3C validation perfectly. Good luck!
baby croc will do just fine. if/when you get more traffic, you can always upgrade.
