Review of HostGator:
I have used several web host over the years including Bluehost, Yahoo, GoDaddy, Siteground, 1and1, and others. Some were ok, but their "unlimited" plans weren't really unlimited. Actually none of them are. Some hosts have a limited on "multimedia" files and everyone has a limit to a certain number of ionodes, or the number of total files you can host. Hosting companies advertiser unlimited space.... as in GB, but you have to read the fine print because there is always a limit on number of files. You could have one file on the server that is 500GB and your fine, or you could have 500k files that only take up 10GB and your account will be shut down. Most hosts have a 50k ionodes limit, but Hostgator allows 250k ionodes, way more than most. With Hostgator you can upload to the server and they don't have a limit on multimedia files either... images, video, and audio files. Their customer service is excellent as well. I would not use any other host if I had a choice. Unfortunately, as a web designer, I deal with many of the other hosts daily when clients already have hosting. Hostgator is by far the easiest to work with.
