Where you host your website is a major decision. After all, your web host reliability often means the difference between success and failure.
For example, have you ever clicked on a link in google only to be met with a page that says something along the way of... "This website has exceeded its bandwidth limit. Please contact the website owner and let him know!"
Well, that is a classic example of someone hosting with Hostgator. Hostgator, in general, is really for personal or family pages that aren't going to be getting much traffic.
People gravitate to that host because they charge so little, but cheap does not equal good.
