How to use your Hostgator Promo Code
Frequently asked questions
Without knowing your website, and how many visitors it gets it is difficult to provide specific advice.
For shared web hosting, their Hatchling plan only allows one domain, and their Baby and Business plan offer unlimited domains. Their shared hosting should be sufficient to run WordPress, or other software that can be installed using their 1-click app installer. All plans come with unlimited disk space and bandwidth.
You can currently try out Hostgator Hosting for 1 cent when paying monthly, although after the first month if you wish to stay you might consider cancelling, and signing up again with one of the better long term discounts.
However, if you have a business or high traffic website (100,000+ page views per month) you may wish to consider their cloud hosting which is a lot faster, and is relatively cheap for what you get, starting at $4.95 for a single domain.
Furthermore, their cloud hosting comes with failover, meaning that if there is a hardware issue your site will be switched to another server.
You can read more about the Hostgator plans here, or contact them with any queries on live chat.
They accept credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, money orders, bank wires, Western Union and cash.
If wishing to pay my money order, cheques, and even cash, then you can post this to them in the mail and it will be applied to your account.
Yes, they accept payments from verified PayPal accounts.
Unfortunately, they do not accept other third-party payment sites such as Moneybookers, WebMoney, or AlertPay.
While it is much better value to pay for such a long period in advance, you have to consider that hosting providers can change considerably over that time. While they may be good today, doesn’t mean they will be in two years time.
Furthermore, in a year, for example, you may wish to change provider to take advantage of new technologies or better support.
Only you can decide, but you may wish to check out the Hostgator reviews before purchasing.
While it is very easy to manage domain names with Hostgator with their simple control panel. You can also opt for Domain Privacy Protection to keep your details private in the WhoIs directory, which can reduce the amount of spam emails you receive.
You can find a detailed guide on how to purchase a domain with either GoDaddy or Namecheap and point it to your hosting provider here. It’s easy.
According to section 15 of their Terms of Service, a 99.9% uptime guarantee is in place for their Shared and Reseller hosting plans.
If they do not achieve this level of service they will add one month credit to your account. Note that planned maintenance does not count towards downtime.
Their VPS and Dedicated Servers are covered by their Network Guarantee, which applies prorated credit for the period the network is down.
Yes. Just purchase a VPS Plan and fill out their transfer form and they will take care of it for you.
Alternatively, just purchase the VPS, transfer your files and then point your domain name at the new server as per your welcome email.
If you wish to migrate to a dedicated server, simply contact HostGator support and they will walk you through the whole process.
It is easy to upgrade to their WordPress Cloud plans which are fully managed, as they offer free migrations.
It is based on their Cloud Hosting architecture and offers up to 2.5x load times, CDN, and multiple caching layers. It includes automatic malware removal, Adwords credit, automatic updates to WordPress Core & WordPress plugins, site backup & restore with CodeGuard among other benefits.
For a couple of extra dollars a month, this is definitely worth considering.

Unfortunately, no discount will show on orders directly through the customer portal.
Unfortunately, any discount on web hosting only applies to the first invoice. As such there is no HostGator coupon for renewal.
However, there is nothing stopping you from signing up for a new account with another provider and transferring your website.
Yes! Current customers are welcome to join in and take advantage of this great offer; however, the offer is only applicable to newly created HostGator hosting plans. That means the discount does not apply to extensions, renewals or upgrades of existing hosting packages.
Note that your plans on your existing hosting account cannot be canceled and transferred to a new package in order to receive the discount. If this occurs, you will be billed retroactively for the discounted amount.
Yes. Customers receive a 45 day money back guarantee for shared hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), and reseller hosting plans.
