To sign up to Hostgator Baby Plan or Hostgator Baby Package, go to Hostgator Baby Package and then select baby. The hatchling plan does not support multiple domains. The business plan is only slightly more expensive, but only slightly more useful, if at all.
Hostgator Baby Plan is now Mandatory for autoblogs setup. If you want me to support other hosts you need to show that they are really much better than Hostgator Baby Plan because I will only support like 1 host or at most 2 hosts.
Also the reason my price is cheap is because I can automate adding domains and subdomains to Hostgator Baby Plan cpanel setup. Other hosts have a slightly different URL and I do not want to accommodate too many hosts.
Why I recommend, or actually in case if you buy autoblogs setup from me, REQUIRE, that you use Hostgator Baby Package? I insisted because they are so good. I am giving an added value to my customers by telling them the best hosting there is.
Well Hostgator Baby Package is what I AM USING mainly MY SELF. I have 700 domains spread over 9 Hostgator Baby Plan. I keep buying and buying from them. Why? Once I know a damn good supplier why change?
There is no need for a different cpanel for each domain. 1 cpanel is enough. I used add on domains feature to host many domains in one hosting with just 1 cpanel account.
Before I used dreamhost. I can’t easily automate wild card subdomains in all of my domain. In hostgator I can just automate their cpanel to do so easily. I can easily change name server in bulk from my registrar to a Hostgator Baby Plan hosting and then use simple vb.net program to automate adding domains and wild card subdomains manipulating Hostgator Baby Plan.
In some model, I even host like 200 domains in one directory. Yap, all 200 domains in one directory. If I want to update 200 domains, I just change that 1 directory. How fucking cool is that?
Then I simply used the $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] to decide what I should display. Works very well. Many other hosts may not even allow such automation. I got kicked out of dreamhost because of that. Not Hostgator Baby Plan.
I had to go back and forth arguing and arguing with dreamhost representative. With Hostgator Baby Plan things works well so easily.
They are very reasonable. If I used too much resources, they just suspend the account. That happens after I exceed their already reasonable limit for significant amount of time. Obviously that’s VERY RARELY. I quickly move all those domains EASILY from one Hostgator Baby Plan to another Hostgator Baby Plan to even out the load while fixing the issue, or well, buy another Hostgator Baby Plan as I grow.
I think it’ll be great if Hostgator Baby Plan has an alarm that tell us when our loads go high to our email. But as I said, load spikes are very rare unless I did something unusual, like mass pinging. I ended up making a special program to scan my CPU usage on those plans.
Yea, the suspending sucks. However, I also understand that I must have done something really bad if they suspend my account. Also they started my server quickly, giving me benefits of doubt often. Compared to other hostings that I know of, their ways of handling a “heavy” customer like me is very lenient. Other hosts would force you to upgrade to their virtual hosting plan. Their technical service is insanely patient. I just don’t know what to complaint. This is way better than all other hosts I tried DEFINITELY. I tried a lot.
Of course they have reasonable limit. But their limit is very reasonable. I mean some of my friend actually spam and Hostgator Baby Plan don’t care because he doesn’t use their smtp server. If spam complaints are too many, then yea, they’ll suspend I guess. But if it’s not they don’t even care. That’s how lenient they are.
Their ticket support is awesome. I wonder how the hell they give LIVE help with such a small payment. How the hell they make money? Hostgator Baby Packages is right when they said they eat up their competitors.
Other hosts maybe cheaper. Slightly cheaper because Hostgator Baby Packages is one of the cheapest hosting in the whole world.
In the past I tried to accommodate a bunch of different hostings. Always with bad results. Sometimes the sites got hacked. Sometimes UAW doesn’t work. Sometimes there is error. PhP version is different. After a while I have had it. Hostgator is the best anyway, it must be hostgator. There has to be an absolutely good reason if you want to use others.
If you use Hostgator Baby Packages, in my opinion, Hostgator must be really good at managing their server or they must be selling their hosting at a loss. How come $9 a month give hostings that’s even more powerful than typical dedi server. I know. My dedi is overwhelmed but not that hostgator hosting when I run some script. Yea sounds like too good to be true bull shit. No.
In the beginning I was using a dedi on some other hosting. Cost me $175 a month. Guess what, Hostgator Baby Packages, outperform that dedi. Not to mention the kind of technical skill I need to learn and time spent on a dedi. With Hostgator Baby Packages however, they got insane customer support that even answer areas beyond their obligation.
Maybe if you order 100 or 200 domain, and willing to take responsibility if things go wrong I would do it. But now definitely Hostgator Baby Packages. Only $9 per month enough for like 200-500 domains.
As for autoblogs setup, my price is cheap because I do not need to update my program for each different customer. Even then each order takes a whole day for my computer to run. A computer has to run day and night. If there is but one mistake, the whole thing has to be restarted.
An alternative is you set the vanilla wordpress installation. I tried that. Guess what, when you do things manually mistakes happen and then the whole program get stucked.
Getting Hostgator Baby Packages is cheaper than if you host yourself. In fact, I’ve heard that most hosting companies over sell a little bit. I wonder what happen if all customers are heavy users like me that keep buying as loads go up?
So if you want to buy autoblogs setup setup from me, or everything else definitely you will need Hostgator Baby Package. This is not a fake review site. There is no other hosts I would recommend. Not that I know of. Period.
The only downside of Hostgator Baby Packages is that hundreds of your domains share the same IP. I do not see that as any problem whatsoever.
