    Cons

    I wanted to set up a blog on Forex trading using WordPress. A friend of mine recommended HostGator because it's supposed to be real easy to upload WordPress to them. I would not have used HostGator ordinarily because I believe they are expensive. I chose my domain name and picked the Baby plan and paid them with my Paypal account, set up the cPanel, set up the email and left to go install my blog using WordPress. Got an email from HostGator "We are happy to inform you that your Shared Hosting Account has been configured and is ready for use!" When I tried to upload my blog it wouldn't work so I typed in the website address into my browser and Goggle said it doesn't exist. Checked my email and got this message from H.G. "Your web site may be in violation of our Terms of Service", WHAT? I've not even uploaded my website yet, how can it be in violation of anything? Then they want me to send them a copy of my passport, drivers license etc. NO WAY am I sending documents like that to anyone. Then they want a description of what my website will be. I told them it's a blog about Forex hence the name "forex-cash-blog" They said they must have confirmation that i am who i say I am, so I send them a scanned copy of my recent phone bill. That's when communication stopped, I have no website and they have my money. I've opened up a Paypal dispute to get my money back. I've wasted a whole day with these idiots and I advise everyone to stay away from these scammers.

    Pros

    Excellent, in my experience While being hosted not or long, I really like the service they provide: clear straightforward registration with not problems afterwards, full featured c-Panel control over website, excellent tech support (had questions, not covered in support knowledge base, not problems), nice people to deal with. Prices are average, discount with first order. But: these prices are including features that some other popular providers offer each at separate fee. Such as domain privacy, domain lock, shared SSL even at cheapest plan. You could even have e-commerce cart installed on cheapest plan, which is reasonable if you do not accept credit cards payments directly. For a small monthly fee additional website protection is available. I don't have it yet, but this is a good feature to have. Possibly downside: each file uploading/downloading creates nodes on server that are stored, as I understand, forever for your hosting account. This number is recommended to keep within (quite big) limits, so when trying different large programs like carts or forums, with install/uninstall, watch for it on c-Panel. Other providers likely have this feature too. Overall very satisfied with this host.
