Website Hosting

I have been working with and using this website hosting service for the last 2 years (at least) and have had nothing but a good experience with the service and with the support staff.

I had used some other smaller hosting companies for my needs prior to switching over and even though the service was there, most of the time, the support service was sadly lacking. Even you are anything like me when you are working on a website and you are ready to upload or are having problems with some aspect of the install you want to get immediate help. The great thing with HostGator is you can get Live Help 24/7. That makes a huge difference. It is not such an issue now that I am used to installing and updating my websites and have all the steps clearly outlined in my procedure manual, but when I was first installing some sites that had special requirements being able to chat with a support person live as just the best. Within minutes I had my problems solved and was able to move on to my next task for the day.

In the beginning I was hosting websites using HTML and some that I had created with JOOMLA. Now -a-days I generally work with WordPress only and HostGator is ideal for that. Within minutes of getting your account you can access the cPanel, install WordPress and then load your theme and content. Your site will be live and ready to start getting traffic in under an hour. Content is going to be something you will have prepared beforehand for installation and is something that you will continue to add to as time goes by. I site that is over developed in the beginning is not always a good thing. Adding content over time, especially to a WordPress site (blog), is something that will show the search engines that you site is active, alive and of interest to potential visitors…. but that’s a whole new topic in itself.
