Top 5 HostGator alternatives with good service delivery and support


If you have a web site on the Internet then there is no chance that you do not know about the web hosting service provider called HostGator. It has been one of the most successful service renderer and although the company has its headquarters in the US, they are providing their services to close to 200 countries across the globe.

The company is reputed and is known all over the world. But in the recent years, many budding web hosting service companies have been giving tough competition to HostGator. And truthfully, of recent, hostgator has gone below the pecking order in service delivery and customer services when it comes to giving my own humble and sincere opinion.

They have not been actively working towards their customer business, but towards the customer’s pay!

In case you have had similar negative experience with HostGator, and you are looking for a good web hosting service to replace Hostgator, then here are the top 5 hostgator alternatives.

    The bottom line is that you’d get what you paid for when it comes to web hosting. We have numerous of clients who after awhile decided to move their web sites/blogs to another hosting companies away from Hostgator. Then they’ll ask us to why their sites/blogs were downed at certain times of the week, or their sites/blogs slow to connect or they were no longer to have certain features what they used to have. Anyhow, from your list, I would only recommend BlueHost as alternative web hosting other than Host Gator.

    Godaddy is not a good inclusion in my opinion. Using iPage from quite a while and I think it is also a great alternative to HostGator.

    I agree that Godaddy is not a good choice. Although I haven’t been with them in almost a decade I’ve still heard enough bad things in recent years. BlueHost is the best alternative in your list IMO.

    Thank you so much as you providing this informative post about some other Hostgator alternatives. I personally do not like them either, they collect my money and didn’t deliver as promised. And the worst part of it is that there customer support is the worst in the industry of late.

    I love your article and comparison. :)

      Hmmmm! But it seems Bluehost has been messing up with its customer orientation these days. The support is okay but their terms aren’t made known publicly until you signed the agreements. I had a personal experience, though. But still, I’m still using them for one of my projects.

      Thanks Shri for commenting here. Glad to have you around contributing your own quota so as not to mislead people. Kudos! :)

    This is great. Thank you – I’ve been using Hostgator since I started making live sites. I’ve used GoDaddy twice, but had too much trouble with them, their servers went down several times on me, so switched to Hostgator. Never had any problems with them. Although, some of the alternatives you express seem pretty reliable (might try some of them). At the moment I’m using them for my ticket website.

      Bluehost is just like HG but they are kind of better than HostGator in so many ways…customer support is better of recent. Don’t know what they might do tomorrow. :D

    I haven’t tried all of the hosts on your list, but a word of caution about the supposedly reliable “Just Host” who I recently moved away from because there was so much down time and so many problems. At one point they accidentally deleted my whole site when they were doing maintenance or something, and they didn’t notice. I was on holiday at the time and not checking the site daily, so it wasn’t until I got home to a bevy of “are you out of business” messages from friends that I found out what had happened. They a lot more reliable than some out there, but still no where near as reliable as I wanted and expected them to be for the money!

      That’s kind of difficult situation…I experienced something similar with HostGator awhile ago. But they are gone from my web hosting history….

    Great lists of hosts above! I was with Bluehost for several years until a friend recommended a new host. I was up for the challenge and switched. What a big mistake that way! Fast forward to now, I am happy to say I’ve been with Site5 for quite some time now and I absolutely love them! They have been very helpful from day 1 and their customer service is superb imo. Thank you for sharing this info! I’ll gladly pass along.
