    HostGator shared hosting is way better than GoDaddy, however GoDaddy VPS are much better!

    Then pay monthly,keep backups and try them both. or even do a 180 and pick a third host.The choices you have are unlimited.

    Why did you pick up these hosts in the first place? Do you have a preferred location? Maybe if you provide more details we could figure out if there is a more suitable host for you.

    Stay away from Godaddy shared hosting. There are plenty of warnings regarding their services posted all of WHT. If you are concerned about a host, try searching the forums for user reviews. Also check out the Hosting Offers section for a wide variety of different hosts.

    HostGator. GoDaddy servers have some non-standard configurations and make it difficult to get some common PHP scripts to run correctly.

    HostGator vs Godaddy is like hamburger vs dogfood.
    HG is the burger.

    Depends on your needs. If your starting a new website, then HG. But in the long run or if you already have a site your trasnferring, then choice #3, not HG and look through the Shared Hosting offers section.

    Godaddy hosting anything is just bad, period.

    HG was an excellent host about 5 years ago. Sites loaded quickly, support answered tickets properly, and chat support would answer you in 2 minutes.

    Now because they sell unlimited everything, sites can load slow, databases can have errors or crash, support tickets give you a run around before actually helping, and chat support can take up to 60 minutes for someone to answer due to many people asking for support.

    This doesn't happen to everyone and you could be the lucky one to avoid those issues, but they are common issues that many have complained about with HG.

    If your looking for "unlimited space"...doesn't exist. Figure out your needs and find a good host that will work with you.

    I would have to say hostgator on this one. I held a vps from them awhile back and they provided the support I needed. The VPS was quick. So I vote for Hostgator.

    Comparing two, HG is better of course...

    However, why are you stuck on these 2 providers only? There are plenty of service providers in the market if you have clear specific requirements...

    Support inquiries via livechat are still solved in a timely manner - tickets are solved within 1-2 hours, no matter what the inquiry.

    Haven't done phone support because I haven't needed to.

    Stay far away from godaddy. I wouldn't even touch godaddy with a ten foot clown pole. But their commercials are funny But the service is bad especially the shared hosting cause you only get like 62mb memory. And if you want a forum or a wordpress don't go near godaddy. The VPS they have is so-so not the greatest in the world and performance/price is pretty bad too.

    Godaddy(Shared):
    Dynamic Site - No No
    Static Site - Yes Yes YEAH!
