Hostgator is one of the industry’s top leading providers of web hosting services. The company specializes in providing its clients with reseller, shared, VPS, and dedicated web hosting plans. Since its founding in 2002 by Chairman Brent Oxley, the company has blossomed into one of the world’s top ten providers.
Oxley founded Hostgator from his dorm room at Florida Atlantic University. The web hosting provider manages 12,000 servers. That is a significant increase from the company’s original three servers. Currently, Hostgator is responsible for contributing 1 percent of all internet traffic through the over 5 million domains it hosts.
Hostgator is a company designed for people. Its over 400,000 clients are a testament to that fact. The company prides itself on providing the most innovative up to date services and products to its customers. The company provides services to people in 200 countries and has built a diverse community of clients.
Hostgator provides reliable and consistent services to clients from all walks of life and with many different levels of expertise, from the novice to the expert. Hostgator’s clients include web developers, individual freelancers, Fortune 500 companies, and businesses of all different sizes.
In 2007, Hostgator packed its bags and made the move from Boca Raton, Florida to its current home in Houston. As of now, the company has taken over 20,000 square feet of office space and has hired over 200 people to meet the needs of their clients. Hostgator has been able to continue to grow because they have a loyal client base and new clients signing up every day.
Since its induction in the business services sector, Hostgator has grown at a steady pace. In 2008, Inc. Magazine recognized Hostgator as the fastest growing private company in Texas. The magazine also named the web hosting company number 21 on the list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S., and Hostgator came in second as the fastest growing private company in the business service sector.
According to a 2008 customer survey, an average of 90 percent of Hostgator’s clients reported being satisfied with the company and its services. Hostgator has made stellar customer support and service a number one priority since day one, and the results have really paid off. Hostgator has made it clear that it has set its sights on becoming the number one leader in global web hosting, and the company is well on its way.
Hostgator is continually being recognized for its fast, reliable, and affordable web hosting services. This year, the company was awarded the 2011 Best Free Website Transfer Service. Hostgator realizes not all web hosting companies can live up to its standards, and when clients are unhappy with their current providers, Hostgator makes transitioning to its web hosting plans as smooth and hassle free as possible. Hostgator was also awarded the 2011 Best Small Business Hosting Award by Web Hosting Clue, a website that posts guides for small businesses owners and webmasters to help them find the best web hosting solutions.
