Why HostGator over other Hosts? 

Although there are many web hosts that offer the same unlimited features, HostGator is well known as having some of the best customer service & reliability with website hosting.  You may think that does not matter, but you’ll realize it does when you need some quick tech support and find out it’s a huge hassle just to get some help. HostGator has outstanding 24/7 customer support, the agents have no problem logging into your account and fixing the issues for you rather than just giving you instructions on how to do it.

What Can You Do With Web Hosting?
Obviously web hosting is for creating website, and somewhere to host it on. But there are a lot of other perks that people new to hosting, don’t know about. Such as having your own personal email address. This is the most professional feature you can have for your business versus using a regular Gmail type of email. You can set up unlimited email addresses on your domain, and call them whatever you want! Such as Contact@yourwebsite, or Larry@yourwebsite, etc…
Hosting is also great for wordpress, if you want to setup and create an easy professional website with wordpress, you can install it quickly through hostgator’s setup process, and have a wordpress site setup. You can also use Joomla or other scripts.
