Server options

You can choose between Linux or Windows OS. The prices are the same. cPanel and WHM is included when choosing the managed Linux option and Plesk and WebMatrix with the managed Windows option. You can choose between having your server semi-managed or managed. If you select semi-managed you won't get cPanel or Plesk but you will save about $10/mo. I would not suggest going for this unless you know what you're doing. The prices we show are for the managed option.

Expensive domain names

If you need a new domain name I would suggest using one of the top registrars and save about 50% off the cost compared to what this web hosting company charges. HostGator is charging $14.95 per year for whois privacy for your domain name, which in contrast, is totally free with some of the best domain registrars.

Data center & support

The HostGator servers are located in Houston, Texas, USA. Live tech support available 24/7.

24/7 USA based support team

I have mostly had great interactions with the Hostwinds technical support team. For technical support requests, you need to submit a ticket. They have been amazing to me and always helped out fixing anything I've asked them. Sometimes though they can be pretty slow with their responses and fixing server issues. This is why I would think twice about using this web host for very important websites. If you are not that reliant on fast support, then you could save a bit by hosting with this host. They do have 24/7 live chat sales support on their website (popup in the bottom right when visiting their website from a desktop computer).
