Hostgator has led the way recently in terms of volume, and selection in the area of online hosting, and servers. A person can get online with their hatchling plan for three dollars a month.
One of the things that becomes very important, very quickly is the security of the website, in fact, google will down tune you in the search engines if you do not have a padlock on your domain, in other words if it is not served securely.
To remain competitive, these different hosting companies have started to offer free SSL certificates but the installation is sometimes difficult. Sometimes, these companies will offer a free SSL, and then corral you into a more expensive account just to get them installed but that is not the case with Hostgator. They have made that quite easy and I’m glad to see it.
I think that while GoDaddy.com removes things from the consumers hands and then applies a charge to these basic services, Hostgator‘s move to make things easier, and less expensive, and more intuitive for the consumer is a great move.
I think we should expect to see great things from Hostgator.com
