Hostgator VPS Hosting Review

From VPSWebHostings.com


Let me start out by saying first that Hostgator is one of the biggest hosting companies out there today. Because of this fact a simple Google search for a Hostgator review is going to give an overload of information from anything saying that these guys are the best in the world to saying that they are a scam. That being said, it is time to put all the review stuff aside and think logically about the issue at hand. If Hostgator was a scam would they be as big as they are? How may Toyota Camrys do you pass on the road in one day? If you are like me then you probably see more than a hundred. When it comes to anything that you see large numbers of then most of the time it is because that thing or product is considered to be worth the price. Now that does not mean that a company of such size is not going to make some enemies on the way. But it does mean that they have a pretty good idea of what people like and provide it. The have one of the best deals on VPS hosting in the market and if that is not what you are looking for then they have plenty of other options to choose from. Here is what they offer:

  • Use this Special Discount Code VPS9942012 (only availabe through TopVPSHosting.net) for an additional $9.94 off any hosting packages from Hostgator.
  • Unlimited Disk Space
  • Unlimited Bandwidth

As anyone can see, Hostgator offers an awesome Virtual Private Server package that is pretty hard to compete with. Their price on VPS hosting is also very reasonable and they offer the same uptime guarantees, unlimited hosting and PHP, Pop3, MySQL services that all the other reputable hosting companies do. So give these guys a try and if you do not like them for some reason there is always the 45 day money back guarantee to keep you safe.

First a little background - my site uses a big SQL database but its essentially read-only. I log the transaction time in milliseconds for each sql request, and also for the total end-to-end transaction time (to Australia), which includes internet input/output.

I decided to check out Hostgator from a performance perspective.

Here is what I discovered:

Previous provider who I just dumped - anything up to 25000ms - that's right - 25 seconds to read a single SQL record! And typically 10 seconds internet IO time.

Another "big" host provider - SQL times around 50 - 70 ms, and internet IO around 300 - 400 ms.

HostGator - SQL times consistently less than 10 ms. In many cases 1, or 2 ms. It is amazing to see this kind of performance. Internet input/output typically 200ms.

So I'm absolutely happy with HostGator server response. Of course I should have just kept quiet about this because the more people who read it, the more people will probably want to use Hostgator. But I have every confidence that the Gator will do the right thing and keep the user to server ratio just right to maintain this terrific performance.

We've been hosting a few accounts with HG for several years now.We had some problems come up on one of the accounts last month and we informed Gator support about our issues. I have to say the Gator Team staff are definitely the best support I've ever encountered on the Web! Not only did they go to the end of the earth to resolve our issues, they were extremely friendly and easy to deal with. These guys have a lot of patience and really take care of customers!

I just wanted to mention that in a time when many companies are lacking in customer service I have been pleasantly surprised by the Hostgator ticket support. They are always very quick to respond when a ticket is issued, and have been extremely helpful. I get the feeling that this company has managed to develop a customer focused culture, which I know from experience is difficult in a "price competitive" business. So far they have greatly exceeded my expectations.

Overall our experience has been great, and I have loved HostGator's overall experience. The problems I have had have been fixed pretty quickly, so I have upgraded my service (reseller hosting). I am tempted to upgrade again to a VPS, has anyone had great service with this? I do web design and host most of the sites, so I really need top notch stuff. My primary problem has been up and down with speeds, hoping VPS would fix that.
