Recommendations:

I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs near constant up time.

Experience:

They were recommended to us by another company we have a working relationship with. Our old service couldn't guarantee the amount of uptime we need. Host Gator has been exceptional in their service so far. Web hosting, cloud backups, and email hosting. Their uptime and speeds are phenomenal. They have great customer service people who go out of their way to fix any issues we bring to their attention.

Pros:

Their customer service and uptimes are phenomenal. They strive to fix any problems we bring up.

Cons:

The interface for interacting with the hosting service is a bit clunky.

Recommendations:

it is a good overall platform that you can’t beat for the cost and what you get, dollar for dollar the best choice

Experience:

We picked based on cost. Web hosting and email are done through them. There are some slow moments but overall good.

Pros:

What you get for the cost is far better than anywhere else

Cons:

There is moments of speed issues that go from slow to stop and it happens at least a couple times a week

Recommendations:

Live support is second to none and is there to help whenever something goes wrong.

Experience:

We liked the live Chat, Email, and Phone Support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. HostGator live support is second to none and is always there to help whenever something goes wrong. We use a weekly backup service. They have outstanding up-time.

Pros:

Live support is second to none and is there to help whenever something goes wrong.

Cons:

None

Recommendations:

It's quick.

Experience:

They were quick and fast, didn't waste time, good customer service, but could work on communication (emails and phone calls). It helps out a lot with hosting and made things easier.

Pros:

It's very fast and right to the point.

Cons:

The communication levels are a bit low.

Recommendations:

Use more tutorials I suppose. They seem to assume that users already know a lot about how to do things

Experience:

I was already familiar with it and thought it would be the easiest to work with. It’s our web hosting and site builder. It has performed very well with no major issues that caused any down-time for the business. That was all we wanted.

Pros:

It is very easy to work with, to create and edit and save changes.

Cons:

It is a bit limited and may be insufficient for us in the future, but so far it has been adequate for our needs at this stage
