I have replaced the domain name with xxx. According to this, I am with hostgator and this shows that Hostgator has 1,490 domain names on one server. Is this correct or is this all their servers put together. If it is just the one server, then they must be overselling right. Can someone fill me in please.

Well if you go and look at the prices you may realize this is what needs to happen in order to make any money. I know it could be a quad xeon 3.4ghz with 80gb ram and (30) 400gb hard drives but its not..
I will say though for the price you are paying if your site is working the way you want and you are happy with the results why complain?
this is how whois.sc works, it has a db with all com/net/org/info/biz/name and .us too from the registry using ZONEFILE access and then nslookup all domains for example www.example.comwww.example.netwww.example.org etc.. and then counts how many domains pointed to a single IP
Those stats are usually far from accurate however how many sites a server has irrelevant. A host could have one web site hosted on the server and it be crawling to a halt, or they could have 50,000 sites on the server and it be the fastest server in the world. All that really matters is the server load and that things are running smoothly.
I have come across quite a few resellers on $24.95 plans with over 1,000 parked domains. Of course 1k parked domains is not really going to do much of anything since they are not fully functional sites.
you should use webhosting.info instead of that whois.sc ...
You don't have to register... don't have to pay... don't have to log in ... and you can see all the domains names for an ip,domain,dns or webhosting company ...
