Uptime is great, good for shared hosting
As a web dev, I advised HostGator India's baby hatchling plan for shared hosting to a client and he has been very happy. I did not hear any problems with respect to bandwidth or even the regular 'server is down' complaint. Its been a good choice and I feel I will be recommending this brand to most of my blogging and small business site clients going ahead.

A good host for VPS
I have enjoyed my tenure with HostGator India for the last few years or so. They have decent plans and my snappy plan the one I am about to scale performed well since the last 2-3 years for my business site. The 8000 plan is what I am looking to expand to.. thanks hostgator India for the magnificent support and timely renewals at a moderate charge.

Hostgator Unresponsive On Email Issues
Hosted with HG for many years. Great uptime & price. However Time Warner blocks email from HG because HG site owners have spammed. My clients are affected and HG will do nothing to help me. Having to move my sites to SG. If you use email, don't use HG!

Stay away!!!
I was with Hostgator for 3 years. When I first signed up, I was over the moon with their hosting. But for the last year or two, their service has become subpar culminating in our site being down for 4 days, damaged, and no response from them.

Worst Hosting Company Ever!!!
I wish they had negative stars. If you are a reseller, stay FAR AWAY! Servers went down for over 3 days. They shut their phones off, didn't respond to emails, Fb page deleting posts from clients complaining, and just goes on and on. No compensation also.

Extremely poor, Extremely shabby
TERRIBLE customer service. TERRIBLE support. Extremely shabby behaviour.

My VPS server was cancelled and i was offered NO refunds. And the investigation they carried out to do so was hasty and probably what the other guy said here - quick shortcut tak

Not perfect, but solid.
Been with HG since about four years and had only few troubles. Once in a support agents are a bit lazy and do not look closely, jump to convenient shortcuts. Chat waiting times have increased in the last months since company was sold.

Solid Performers Most Of The Time
I have used Hostgator as a reseller for about 7 years now, and outside of 2 incidences (DDOS attacks) that causes some problems for me and my clients for a day or two, they have proved to be solid performers and the customer service I found good.
