Of course all of us know Hostgator, the big hosting company. I remember when hostgator was starting its marketing fuss, claiming they are the best. They are actually very good, but not the best.

They have the best uptime, speed and everything, we all also know about their prices, which other than the Baby plan, you really get what you pay for, tho you can get it cheaper 😉 So, I am not going to spend alot of time talking about how good it is, but in brief I will mention what I dislike about them and why you should choose a smaller host.

  • First of all, they require photo verification for all creditcard payments, tho its a security requirement, I feel its not necessary for shared hosting registration, may be for dedicated.
  • Secondly, this is not a flaw in their system, but still you should try to get as much as you can for your money. HostGator will offer you support, fast support, but just that, while some other hosts, like our Sponsor for example 😀 hehe, will help you to solve your problems step by step, they will even solve it for you, its like a managed hosting account :D.

Also, whats great about DotMain.com our sponsor is that they offer you every single tool you might need for reselling accounts, starting from templates, premium ones to billing software, all of that completely free, and they help you even set it up.
