Founded in 2002 in Boca Raton, Florida, HostGator LLC can be counted among the top web hosts today. They have been into business for three years only now effectively, but as they say, they have eaten into the competition. The competitors take this "gator" as a serious threat to their business and most of the times try to imitate the unmatchable features they provide
Multiple-Domain Support: With the Hatchling plan, you could only host 1 site in 1 account. However, if you upgrade to the Baby Plan, you could host unlimited websites as long as the disk space and bandwidth permit. However, if you have more than 5 sites, we seriously recommend you to find a vps or dedicated server instead of a shared host.
Control Panel: HostGator chooses CPanel as user control panel. CPanel is extremely feature rich as well as includes an easy-to-use web based interface (GUI). And with Fantastisco , you could install your favorite CMS system ( such as mambo, joomla, typo3, php nuke ) as well as blogs ( e.g. Nucleus, Text pattern, b2evolution, Geek log, Word press ) in just one click .
Web Statistics: They provide three log file analyzers. Log file analyzer tool can tell you how many unique visitors per day, how often search engine bots visit you, by which means people find your website, what keyword phrases the visitors use to find your site and much more. Among these analyzer tools, we believe Awstats is most accurate in distinguishing between human visitors and search engine bots.

If you're tired of bouncing from host to host then I would suggest you give HostGator a try. They have support options, which are second to none, including live telephone support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I submitted a phony sales inquiry to the sales department just to check out how their response time was, and I received a response within 10 minutes, which I would say is tremendous.
Although the pricing is not exactly bargain pricing, the cost isn't that bad considering the bandwidth and disk space allocations you are provided with, and also the amount of features that are included with the packages, I think it is still an ideal solution for personal web sites or small business websites.
