Finding the right web hosting for your storefront is important! If you have been in the web development industry as long as we have then you know that web hosting can be a challenge. Our experience has taken us through a number of hosting providers and we have hosted all our sites (including this one) with HostGator for more than 5 years.
While it is true that HostGator is very feature rich the reason we ultimately chose them is for their reliability and fast, 24/7 support. We've found many other web hosts that can offer incredible deals and amounts of space but lack the reliability to be considered for a commercial site. HostGator also offers 24/7 support for all their hosting packages via phone, e-mail, web-based ticket system and chat. While we have had no significant issues arise during our service with them we have found the chat support to be great for quick responses to our technical questions.
For now HostGator is our only recommendation though we would like to be able to recommend a quality windows hosting provider as well as other options in the near future. If you have good suggestions on this let us know and we may give them a try.
For shared hosting we recommend the $12.95 Business Plan for it's unlimited domains and disk space, dedicated SSL and IP and toll-free phone number. You should view the most current and complete set of features at HostGator.
