Hostgator Sucks!

Yeah, Hostgator sucks. That’s true according to all the haters who contribute their input here: Search Google: Hostgator Sucks.

But if that’s how you judge the quality of a hosting company then Hostgator, apparently, doesn’t suck at all. Results on Google searc for Hostgator Rocks outnumbered the search results by more than 10 times and there are hundreds of thousands of Hostgator lovers leave positive comment on the company.

So does Hostgator suck?

Well, it depends. There are tons of reasons why a hosting company gets complaints. Not every bit of the reasons are valid and sometimes, people are complaining just because they are expecting too much from a good thing.

More of the time, I think people on the Internet just like complaining. They think they will get extra by putting up hate words and rants. Hostgator, as one of the fastest growing hosting companies in United States operate hundreds of thousands websites online. With that much of clients being served, I think it’s fair to say that the hosting company can’t please everyone to the max.

Should I go with Hostgator hosting?

For those who’re worried by the negative comments, note that Hostgator offer a long trial period where you can test Hostgator service risk free. The best hosting review you can get is by reviewing the hosting company yourself. If you are unhappy with any part of their service, simply resign from the subscription and you’ll get your full refund back.

Isn’t better?

And after all, not everyone thinks Hostgator sucks. As mentioned earlier there are more fans than haters for Hostgator. Take me for example, I had been operating websites for years and I’m happy with their services all the time.

Hostgator sucks? Never in my dictionary.

    If you read the pages that google shows for “hostgator sucks” a good majority of them actually talk about how great our service is.
    Many customers will say hostgator is great, and xyz sucks. The two words being used close together ends up with us being listed in google as “hostgator sucks”.

    Cheap Web Hosting…

    We have to ask why web hosting became affordable to so many people when the cost of it dropped. The reason is pretty direct with the increasing demand….

    Hello, I’m from Malaysia, and I believe everyone using the internet must have come across the “NO CONTRACT” representation made by HostGator to the internet users. In legal terms, no contract means there will not be any terms whatsoever governing the client. Client will be free to stay or leave, without any terms governing them. Client makes payment if they wish to continue, and HostGator terminate/suspend the account if there is no payment.

    Can they assume continuance of service under the “NO CONTRACT” representation? Can they continue to bill you every month despite there are no domains configure to use their web hosting? No, and “NO CONTRACT” means “there will not be any terms and conditions” between the party. If there is one, all party must have waived because this is a “NO CONTRACT” relationship.

    Surprisingly and after I decide and inform not continue using their web hosting, HostGator keep on billing me every month. I’ve contacted the Consumer Service and the answer is:

    Me: “…This is a “No Contract”, and please do not assume the account is active until you have received my confirmation to continue your services and make the monthly payment. Thank you…”

    Host Gator: “…While we do not have contracts for hosting plans, you DID AGREE TO OUR TERMS OF SERVICE, at the time you ordered your account. Our TERMS OF SERVICE includes the following…. 4.) Payment Information… YOU AGREE to … YOU AGREE that until and unless you notify HostGator of your desire to cancel any or all services received, those services will be billed on a recurring basis… invoices will be manually generated and payment expected for the time the account was suspended… ”

    Me: “…Oh okay, so you did impose some terms (contract) on your service. This is a misrepresentation of facts or worst, a fradulent misreprentation…”

    The term or condition that mentioned “YOU AGREE” is an AGREEMENT, and thus, is a CONTRACT. Question now arise does their representation of “NO CONTRACT” match with their practices?

    NO, and the “NO CONTRACT” representation is a SCAM, intentionally made and strategically planned to deceive the client to purchase their hosting services. It is a fraudulent misrepresentation to deceive the consumer.

    I think hostgator sucks. I used their services for years. But then I started having problems with my site going down, and customer support not giving me good answers on what was wrong, and how to fix it. I was so pissed about there service, i wrote about it on my blog because my blog was shut down due to their crappy service.

    Hostgator sucks!

    HostGator does suck. There tech support leaves a lot to be desired. The account welcome email is only received after asking for it. And you have to call in to get your account out of “pending” status and still no welcome email is forthcoming. I received mine only because I kept asking for it. And good luck in getting a refund. They will argue with you when you cancel and then you have to wait for your refund. I still haven’t received my refund even though I was told it had been done. I used my debit card to pay and the payment to them came out of my account immediately, I don’t understand why it takes them so long to give me my money back.

    At first I thought hostgator is okay but when I bought an account from them. I found out they are hawker. they fund your money upon your payment but actually the money never goes back to your account and after they money is gone they will charge your billing account saying you have not paid and there for you are charge of over due and after that they will tell you they will not charge over due with in ten day. my account with them is only few days and I was charge 82 dollars. they make you blind because they will post your charge infront of you and they say they did not charge you. anyway alligator like hostgator are sucker.
