Hostgator has three shared hosting plans, namely: “Hatchling” plan that is priced at $ 3.96 per month,” baby” plan which is very popular among many Hostgator customers and starts at $6.36 per month and The Business plan package which starts at $10.36 per month.
Hostgator offers unlimited disc space and bandwidth to all its hosting packages. It also offers unlimited number of domains that can be hosted in one account on the baby and business plans. However it has a shared SSL certificates on hatchling and baby plans while the business plan has a free private SSL and IP address.

What happens here is the company gives you a chance to exploit the unlimited disc space and bandwidth they give you where domains share the hosting resources. What a feature!
The company offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee. This is one of the features that tell us that Hostgator is one of the few serious webhosting companies we currently have. This is because they show their seriousness and reliability. Moreover, they have a policy that exempts you from paying them on webhosting if their uptime dropped below the quoted 99.9% in any month. This is one of the very few webhosting companies that offer an uptime guarantee on its customers. Do you know why a company shies away from offering this feature? The answer is simple, unreliability! Hostgator comfortably offers this feature other than the 45 days money back guarantee after buying your webhosting package, which has also been adopted by many webhosting companies I must say.
Hostgator also provide an instant setup of at most 15 minutes unlike other hosting companies that require a day or two for your website to be online. They also have an instantly install scripts of over 75 open source scripts with just a single click.
