I have been using HostGator since I started and they have always been very helpful. I would not recommend them if I did not personally have success with them. If you're going to sign up with HostGator please use this promo code: shoponline25 and you will save 25% off, which is higher than the regular promo. I receive a small commission when you enter the code and this allows me to continue making video tutorials.
