Mostly known for their shared website hosting service, Hostgator also offers other hosting packages as well.
Hostgator Website Hosting Plans
Hostgators 3 main shared plans are their Hatchling Plan, Baby Plan, and Business Plan. The main difference between them is how many websites you can host and a free SSL security certificate.
Hostgator Managed WordPress Hosting
One of Hostgator’s newer offer is managed WordPress hosting, designed to compete with WP Engine and the various other providers. However, it’s still Hostgator.
Awesome video, I learn a lot from your resources. In the video, you recommended getting recommendations from real people, so I want your thoughts on a few things.
Currently, I have the Hostgator Baby Plan, and I´ve been with them since September 2014. My only issue with them is site speed. Old PHP versions (version 5.6 on new WP installs), so a manual upgrade is required through .htaccess file. I am up for renewal in October this year. By then, I will like to get another hosting company.
I need unlimited websites as I test plugins and themes before I implement those on production sites. I would love to have server-side caching. I reside in Norway, Europe, do any of the hosting companies have servers in Europe or are they US-based only, or can I solve this using a CDN-service.
Should I go with a shared plan of a managed plan?
You should consider getting off of Hostgator and on to a better host. If you still like shared hosting, you can check out NameHero or GreenGeeks. IF you want something better, check out SiteGround.
