HostGator Best Hosting Plans For Bloggers

No matter whatever blogging platform or content management system (CMS) you may be using, the topic today will discuss reliable and affordable web hosting plans that you can purchase to kick start your blogging career. Advertisers and direct sponsors have started giving more value to blogs which are self hosted and produce quality content. Here we will discuss how to transfer your current domain to HostGator and at the same time buy a reliable hosting plan. We will also answer some frequently asked questions to keep things clean and clear.

Why HostGator?

I wont tell you any technical details here like unlimited bandwidth, Disk space, sub domains etc. I would only highlight their excellent customer service. You always need active real support from your web hosting company so that in times of technical need you may not feel helpless. Whether you are a customer or just a passing visitor the agents there are always available to give free help and suggestion.
Web Hosting companies are examined and tested by Online testing organizations and critics every year. HostGator has amazingly moved ahead of everyone in the world of web hosting for speed, reliability and support for over 9 consecutive years. You can Read the long list of awards they have achieved so far at their homepage.

I must tell you that these awards matter a lot because they are reviews collected after detailed research and they are not paid reviews. Therefore their authenticity is always respected and can't be ignored.
I researched for almost a week before choosing our web hosting company. Almost every professional blogger, designer and developer that I came across used HostGator as his web host. I read their reviews and read several forums before making my mind to choose HostGator to provide us with a storage space where we could save our resources and tools. Its one month now since I first joined HostGator and the experience so far has been outstanding. I am learning and experiencing new technologies and can easily apply them to the blog because all latest web technologies and development tools are fully supported by HostGator Control Panel.
They also provide free SEO software to monitor and track performance of your blog along with free $100 Adword and $100 Yahoo Ads campaign if you live in USA.

What can I create after buying a hosting plan?

You can create almost anything using the softwares found in HostGator control Panel (Cpanel)
  1. Blog Software  eg: Wordpress, LifeType
  2. Forum Software
  3. Gallery Software
  4. Guestbook Software
  5. Website Builder
  6. Social Networking Software   eg: Facebook, mySpace
  7. Wiki Software
  8. Survey Software
  9. Billing Software
  10. Chat Software
  11. Directory Software
  12. eCommerce Software 


Will Domain Migration Effect my Ranking or Traffic?

Surely not! You can migrate your domain from your current registrar to HostGator within a week and during this time your website would work just normal. It wont stop working or show a no server found error. The transfer never effects your traffic or ranking. Since you are not changing your domain address and just the company who owned your domain therefore all your backlinks will still point to you and you can continue enjoying the PageRank Juice.
However if you are using Blogger.com then your website will go down for just 24 hours till your DNS settings are propagated successfully. We had informed our readers when MBT was about to Go down for a day. Luckily things proved more easy then we expected thanks to the sincere help of HostGator Agents.
