What is your average uptime?
We have a 99.9% uptime guarantee. If you feel as if your site has been down or unreachable for more then an hour in a given month, give email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your site has been down during a given time frame, our admins will investigate, and if a months credit is due because of downtime, our sales administrators will post a credit to your account.
What is your support response time and what does it cover?
We offer support any cPanel issues, and general servers issues. We will not help you design your site, or write scripts. We have 24/7 live chat and phone support which will give you immediate assistance, or if needed, you can email email@example.com for billing questions, or firstname.lastname@example.org for advanced technical support. We work on tickets in the order they were received. If there is a high volume of tickets, your response time will be a little longer.
Do you have any coupons or discounts?
As of right now, we offer 20% off your first payment if you use the coupon code BEACH. This coupon only applies to your first payment, so the longer you pay in advance, the more you save.
What else can you tell about your company and services?
Host Gator strides to be the best web hosting company out there, and feel as if we provide the highest quality support the industry has to offer. There are plenty of employees who work for us that use to work for other hosting companies, such as Dream Host. With people defecting from other hosting companies to come work for us, we must offer something that no one else can!.

Review of hostgator.com by Jamie on 2011/07/06 at 17:16THESE PEOPLE ARE THE BEST, ALL HOSTS ARE A BIT BAD
FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND SERVICE
I am not sure why people are complaining about their customer support! They fixed several downtime issues I was having, I also phoned them up and within 1 minute of being on their free-phone line, I was through to someone who was English and who actually helped me with my technical issues massively. They also provide tonnes of access to stuff such as PHP configuration and SSH, and are extremely helpful.
I'm sorry, but HostGator in comparison to other hosts are unbelievable fantastic. In terms of the 2IP migration, you had to choose an annual billing system or you would be billed after a month. I made the same mistake but I had the problem solved in 3 minutes over their live chat.
Also the uptime is fantastic, and if your website is down for more than 42 minutes, you get a months free credit.
Fantastic people, highly recommended.
Review of hostgator.com by reviewit on 2010/12/23 at 09:22HOST GATOR "NO CONTRACT" SCAM
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 consumer to purchase their hosting services. It is a fraudulent misrepresentation to deceive the consumer.

Review of hostgator.com by George on 2009/11/23 at 09:37I migrated from 2IP to Hostgator after the alleged DoS attack on 2IP with the use of the 1 free year coupon that they provided, but after 1 month from the activation, I received notifications from Hostgator to pay for the hosting (the email was saying for monthly fee), so they've tricked us to believe that we've had 1 year of free hosting! Of course I didn't pay, since they've tricked me! If they haven't done that I would stay with them as my hosting service but now I am really outraged with them!
