Who is HostGator & How’s the performance?
Way back in 2002, a handsome young chap by the name a Brent Oxley started a web hosting company and named it HostGator. 10 years later, on June 21 2012, Brent Oxley sold Hostgator to web hosting conglomerate, Endurance International Group (NASDAQ: EIGI).
As you can imagine, this made Brent Oxley a very very wealthy man.
I digress, this little article is meant to be about HostGator.
So. HostGator was designed to be easy and simple to use, created with a UI so bright and colourful so that it wouldn’t scare away laymen users. The interface is so intuitive to use, it’s something most other web hosts could learn from.
However, they seem to trade off customizability for user-friendliness, as it feels quite restrictive for people that want to install their own plugins make their own tweaks.
HostGator has Managed WordPress Hosting
If you’re in the know, you’ll know that being a WordPress recommended host is a big thing. HostGator has been a WordPress recommended web host for years, but it wasn’t until 2015 did they launch their Managed WordPress Web Hosting!
This obviously took the company to greater heights as Managed WordPress Hosting is one of the things that are only reserved for the best web hosts.
In our experience, HostGator is a decent web host. Their server response times are fast (which is good for business) and the UI is just so easy to use. It’s a bit restrictive if you want to make your own tweaks, but it can be done with some fiddling around. Read our full HostGator review.
