  1. This great review about A2Hosting and Hostgator. I have recently been trying out Hostgator and I think if you are starting out in the blogging world perhaps they are okay and their cpanel interface looks fine. I moved two of my sites (small ones) over and no problems with doing it myself and they load fine and fast.

    However, the cPanel loading speed is really slow and navigating around doing certain tasks is quite frustrating because of the slow loading times within the cPanel.

    I did give Hostgator a negative review about my experiences in the past but decided to review them again. To be fair to Hostgator they do provide free SSL certificates via Let’s Encrypt and it seems to happen automatically once your domain name has been updated to point to their DNS.

    I have been with SiteGround and they have been excellent but with the price hike for renewal I have decided look at other options. I think A2Hosting is a great option and will be giving them a try.

    Thanks for the review and comparison.
