Advantages of HostGator
Some of the advantages of the HostGator that I enjoyed so far are:
- First of all, one of the best advantages is the Unlimited Parked Domains feature, which allows anyone to park different domains under one shared web hosting account. What it actually means is that you can have one primary domain/account. With this great feature, you can run as many websites as you want, just by paying for 1 web hosting account.
- Other advantage is the Unlimited MySQL Databases creation ability, when many top web hosts such as GoDaddy or HostRocket limit up to 10-15 databases per account.
- Some other good things are the up-to-date cPanel, MySQL/PHPMyAdmin version, PHP Version as well as with all account Zend and IonCube Encoders are automatically installed.
- - One disadvantage is that customer support takes some time to be replied, up to 24 or more hours sometimes, while HostRocket uses to answer to almost all inquires within 30 minutes or 1-2 hours which is really great.
Biggest Pro: Unlimited Parked Domains, Databases, E-mails, Sub-Domains
Biggest Con: Customer support sometimes takes a little bit long.
