For those looking for reliable hosting online you really can’t go past Hostgator. There are a few others that I have used in the past with great uptime as well and one of those are Bluehost.
Hostgator though is extremely reliable and their easy to use Dashboard where you link domain names, upload files via ftp, integrate your WordPress files all make this the best for hosting. The other thing I love about Hostgator is that you can list multiple domains under the one hosting account except for the Hatchling Hosting account which only allows one domain name per hosting account if you have one of those. I recommend at least the Baby Hostgator Plan as it will save you money in the long run unless of course you only ever want to have the one domain name then the Hatchling Hosting Account may be more suited for you.
Some other great features of Hostgator are their 24 hour 7 day a week support both online and on the phone.
They also provide you with an unlimited MySQL Database
Free site transfer, mysql transfer, script transfer. 4500 free web templates.
Hostgator also features the Cpanel with Fantastico (for use with developing your WordPress websites) & PHP 5, ecommerce, blog, forum, joomla, drupal.
Hostgator.com is also one of the largest hosting companies worldwide and with over 4 million domains currently hosted with them you know that you can trust them.
