Cons of Using HostGator Shared
HostGator consistently strong uptime was, frankly, surprising (in a good way). We are also big fans of their uptime promise. Hostgator Voip
Beyond Their helpful customer service and beginner-friendly approach are a testament to this. This means that there is a lot to love about their service.
Unfortunately, We also encountered some issues while trying them out. These are the most serious problems that we discovered:
1. Many extra fees for ‘True.’ Backups, Gmail and Malware
HostGator’s Shared hosting plans start at just $99 with an introductory price of only $49. Only $2.75/month (for 36 Months)
They The cheapest plan (“Hatchling”) includes a single domain. One-click installation of popular apps such as Joomla! and WordPress. Unmetered bandwidth, unlimited storage and a free SSL are all included. Certificate All the essential features that you require for a certificate. Complete website.
But That’s all they offer in their default plans. All of the SiteLock, Gmail access, site backups and SiteLock are some of the ‘extra’ items. When it comes to monitoring, SEO tools and other related services, you will be charged more. Check out.
It’s It is disappointing that many of these features have been carefully crafted. Site, such as “available”, to make it seem like they are included. Check out the other We’ve reviewed the top hosts and You’ll be surprised at how many of them actually toss these in their Basic pricing
It’s Only when you reach the end of the process can you say “Go to” Enter your billing information to see all the details You will pay more for extra features.
Gmail The standard $5/month per user or $60/year per person is the price. pricing. SiteLock will be $19.99/year. CodeGuard (to) will cost $19.99/year. Backup your sites) will run you $23.95/year. They don’t even charge for it. Keep many versions of your website on hand in case of an emergency. Any problems.
So Although the initial plan may seem inexpensive, it quickly becomes more expensive. When all is said and done, it can become quite expensive. Hostgator Voip
2. Industry-Standard Pricing Tricks
In HostGator offers two pricing options in addition to additional fees It is quite standard in the industry.
The First, we are advertising a low rate of $2.75/month only for you Realize that you will need to prepay for three years. It is possible to actually obtain it. You’ll pay $10.95 per month if you don’t. Actual monthly service cost.
That’s it! This is just the beginning. HostGator also offers a host of other features. After your original plan expires, renewal prices jump dramatically.
So Let’s suppose you decide to lock in the low rate for three more years. It’s certain that you will get a great deal.
The Trouble starts when you need to renew your plan within three years. At At that point, the monthly rate for the same plan increases to $6.95/month ($250.20 in total) — More than twice what you paid for the item. Same exact service.
In essence, They are scheming to take advantage of the fact that, after a few decades, there is a greater chance The likelihood of you switching services is very low. So you’re locked You can stay in for a while (like a gym membership or cable company).
Many This is a common trick that we have seen on other hosts. But that’s not the case. It doesn’t necessarily mean that we must like it.
