This post is not intended to be an in-depth review of HostGator, it’s intended simply to give you my opinion and an overview of the services they offer. I am currently a customer of HostGator and use their shared hosting service for several of my websites, including Sonora Central. I have been a customer since 2007 and have been extremely happy with their customer service as well as their shared hosting service. Their response time to questions via email is reasonably quick (within and hour or so) and via chat is within minutes. They offer 24/7/365 support and are diligent in handling customer issues and will not stop until there is a solution.
HostGator’s web hosting plans are on par with all the other major players like Bluehost and GoDaddy and their prices are also competitive. They also offer discounts on new hosting plans throughout the year (best deals are around the holidays). In addition to web hosting, Hostgator now offers domain registration for all popular extensions like .com, .net, .info, .org, .biz, .me among others for an all-in-one solution for getting your website up and running.
As a visitor of Sonora Central you are entitled to a web hosting discount for signing up with a new account. Just use the coupon code “sonoracentral25” at checkout and you will receive 25% off web hosting. The coupon code only applies to web hosting, it will not apply to domain names or any service which is not a hosting account. This discount replaces any discount that HostGator is currently offering, it is not added to it.
