SOBRE HOSTGATOR


Hosting Barato para tus Webs o Blogs con Hostgator
Uno de los mejores servicios de hosting para nosotros es Hostgator.es – Siempre lo recomendados a nuestros clientes. Algo notable en Hostgator y que seguro muchos agradecerán es su excelente soporte via chat que facilita tanto las cosas cuando se tiene alguna duda o surge algún problema. Incluso para los que no estén familiarizados con el inglés siempre disponen de algun comercial para poder atender al cliente en castellano para resolves sus dudas.

Algunos de los aspectos más notables de interés en cuanto a necesidades reales del cliente;

Cupones para Hostgator

Antes de nada compartirte un código de descuento para pagar sólo .01 y poder ahorrarse siempre ,94 por la primera contratación (Promoción exclusiva sólo para hostings. Descuento no aplicable para registro de dominio)

Una vez escogido el plan más adecuado a tus necesidades y tu nombre de dominio para poder aplicar el pertinente descuento tan sólo deberás introducir en la casilla correspondida el cupón que te ofrecemos como afiliados: hostingviajar24h

Al ingresar cualquiera de los cupones de hostgator en el momento de la contratación, obtendrás los descuentos correspondientes independientemente de que los pagos sean de forma mensual, semestral o anual. Los cupones aplican para cada uno de los pedidos de hosting que realices.

Otros cupones de descuento para Hostgator

webhosting994 Con este cupón recibes un descuento en tu plan de hosting de .94 Dolares en la primera contratación. Además ofrecen un bono de 50$ para emplear en google Adwords.

indianapolis Cupon descuento de Hostgator que valida siempre para que te salga gratis el primer mes y para promos eventuales como las celebradas durante las 500 millas de Indianapolis

25hostgatorcoupon Cupón de descuento del 25% pudiendo ahorrarse 25% hasta 0 (dependiendo del plan de hosting y el período de tiempo contratado)

25hostgatorreseller Similar al cupón anterior con descuento del 25% pero planes de hosting

Todos los cupones de Hostgator arriba mencionados han sido testeados,verificados o actualizados. Los diferentes cupones aplican para todos los planes de hosting, Hatching, Baby, Swamp y Dedicado.
Bajo precio:
El bajo precio es lo que mas le importa a cualquiera, y en esta empresa eso no es problema ya que, el plan mas vendido (y el que te recomiendan) ofrece unos 600gb de espacio y 6000gb de Transferencia por solo ,95 dolares mensuales.
Servidores:
El tiempo que se encuentra disponible la pagina es uno de los factores mas importantes. En Hostgator.es te prometen un uptime del 99,9%, y en nuestro caso lo cumplieron ya que nunca se obtuvieron caidas en un lapso mayor a 5 minutos.

La velocidad de carga es otro factor importante, y en mi caso tampoco es problema, ya que solamente tarda 1,6 segundos en bajar una pagina con un peso de 80kb.Datos comprobados gracias a HostTracker y Pingdom Tools.
Buenas Prestaciones
Como nombre arriba, el espacio y banda ancha que ofrece HostGator es inimaginable. Pero como sabrán, el espacio no es físico, sino virtual

Dejando las características obvias, nombramos algunas de las que mas sorprenden cuando se descubre HostGator

– Cantidad Ilimitadas de dominios alojados

– Ilimitados subdominios y cuentas de email

– La ultima versión del cPanel con Fantastico Incluido.

– Certificados SSL públicos y privados, SMTP, etc

– Posibilidad de elegir entre PHP 4 y PHP 5 desde el cPanel.

– Y muchas, pero muchas mas opciones (técnicas para los más experimentados)
Multicuenta
Mucha gente esta buscando poder alojar varias webs en la misma cuenta y muchos hosting no permiten esto. Por suerte HostGator si lo hace, y te permiten alojar todas las webs que quieras. Pero solo hay una desventaja, ya que las prestaciones de Hardware (Como por ejemplo RAM) se dividirán en todas las cuentas alojadas.
Sistema Operativo
HostGator eligió como Sistema Operativo a Linux, lo mas conveniente para poder ofrecer un servicio estable y de calidad. Pero siempre hay gente que busca Hosting con Windows, y HostGator no los deja atrás. Lamentablemente por el momento solo puedes elegir Windows comprando un dedicado, aunque dentro de poco lo integraran en los servidores compartidos.
cPanel
La versión del cPanel que poseen en HostGator es la ultima en este momento, es decir, la versión 11. La única desventaja es que, aunque tengan implementada la versión 11, usan el estilo de la versión 10 y por lo tanto no se aprecian algunas ventajas.

Otra cosa buena que posee es que el cPanel tiene Fantastico incluido, con el que podrás instalar aplicaciones (Como WordPress) con solo hacer 1 clic, lo cual te puede ahorrar mucho tiempo.
Soporte
Hostgator ofrece varias formas de contactos, entre las cuales destaco el sistema de Tickets y el Chat online que poseen por su calidad.
Sistema de Referidos:
Aunque a muchos les resulte algo extraño por experiencia propia y la de contactos que probaron el sistema de referidos de Hostgator podemos garantizar que pagan siempre las cantidades que prometieron o mejor dicho la que se obtiene por número de referidos. Lo bueno es que pagan, por cada alta generada, una cantidad que va desde los hasta los 5 (Cuanto mas referidos poseas, más te pagan).
