Hostgator questions, need your help!!!


Hi bros,

I am considering hostgator to buy my reseller hosting. I will use it for Asean market in fact. A few issues, need your help and experience:

1. Is their speed and uptime for Asean countries, especially Singapore, good or bad?

2. Is there any critical issues with their host so far?

3. Their maximum package is only 200Gb of storage. I did chat with them, and the only way to upgrade is to change to dedicated server ... Anyone encounter this problem before, and any issues of upgrade/migrating to dedicated server from reseller?

I did search through the forums, but there not much information; hence create this topic. Please help.

thank you very much in advance.

If you expect data transfer speeds to be as good as from local servers, you can only be disappointed. With HG's servers being US based, latency will have an effect.

Hostgator block ping, hence I am unable to block them. Do you know any ways to ping them to check response time? Sorry to be noob . I am fine with reponse time around 200ms to 250ms. I already have Singapore server for super fast reponse when needed ...

Why dont you ask their sales via live chat? They should be able to provide your with an test IP and an 100MB test file to download.

I believe HostGator runs out of THEPlanet, so Network connectivity shouldn't be an issue.

In regards to upgrading from 200GB, If you price your packages at sustainable price points you'll be ready to go dedicated before you eclipse 200GB (way before).
