Web Hosting Provider HostGator Upgrades Shared Plans to Offer Unlimited Space and Bandwidth

October 27, 2008
October 27, 2008 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - Web hosting provider HostGator has upgraded its shared plans to offer unlimited space and bandwidth, it was reported recently. The company has also begun offering SSL certificates with “select shared plans”. The upgrades affect both new and existing shared hosting customers.

With this change, there will be no space and bandwidth restrictions on any shared hosting plans from HostGator. The differentiation between the company’s three shared hosting plans will lie in the extra features offered with each plan.

HostGator’s entry-level shared hosting plan, the Hatchling, allows customers to host one domain name with their account, while the mid-level plan, called the Baby plan, allows customers to host unlimited domain names within the same account. The newly renamed Business plan, which is designed for customers looking to conduct e-commerce transactions on their web sites, offers shared hosting customers unlimited domains and as well as a free SSL certificate and dedicated IP address.

"I'm thrilled to see that the disk space and bandwidth arms race is finally coming to an end," said Brent Oxley, HostGator's CEO and founder. "We can now focus on what we do best, which is provide a reliable and affordable service with unbeatable customer service."

With the new plans, all of HostGator’s existing customers will also be able to have unlimited space and bandwidth. Customers that currently have the Business plan will also be able to request a free SSL certificate and dedicated IP address.

These upgrades represent part of a series of moves by HostGator to become the world-leading provider of shared, reseller, and dedicated web hosting. The company is expecting a 20% sales increase as a result of the plan upgrades.

Based in Houston, Texas, HostGator is a world-leading provider of shared, reseller, and dedicated web hosting. Founded by current president and CEO Brent Oxley in his dorm room at Florida Atlantic University, HostGator has grown to become one of the world’s largest web hosting companies. In August 2008, HostGator was recognized by Inc. Magazine as the 21st fastest growing private company in America.
