As of 2013, the company employs under 1,000 people, and hosts over 9 million domains and millions of other websites that manage their domains elsewhere.
HostGator first went live in 2002 while founder Brent Oxley was still studying at Florida Atlantic University. By 2006 there were over 200,000 customers. A year later the company upgraded to a 20,000 square foot facility in Houston, and then in 2008 an office was opened in Austin.
HostGator provides web hosting to customers all over the world so long as they can pay with Paypal or a valid credit card. Regardless of the customer's location their site will be hosted on servers in the United States and they will be billed in dollars. The exception is India which has its own dedicated site at Hostgator.in.
Before you confirm the order make note of which "billing cycle" you have selected. For example you can commit to 12 months up-front for a lower price than a month to month cycle, but the latter means you aren't locked in to a contract.
Beginners are advised to choose a shared hosting plan such as "Hatchling" from $5.56 a month, while those who require more resources can choose from a Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Dedicated Server, which is an entire machine at the data center just for you.
HostGator payments can be made with all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express), as well as Paypal. You will be automatically billed for the term you have committed to, so if you want to cancel be sure to do it before the billing date.
To redeem a Hostgator.com coupon code simply click the one you want to use and you'll be redirected to the site, where you can enter it in to the promo code box before payment.
All of Hostgator's hosting packages and servers are managed remotely, so there is nothing that needs to be shipped to your home address.
Your login details and other information for your package will be emailed to you shortly after payment.
They operate a 45 day money back guarantee, so if you are not happy with the service (regardless of the commitment length) you are free to cancel no questions asked for a full refund. This can be done through their online cancellation form.
Obviously if you use a Hostgator coupon you will only be refunded the amount you were actually charged.
