No hosting company is perfect, but I’ve been really happy with this company the last two years, and I’ve been with several hosting companies. They have 24/7 phone support based in the United States, and their uptime is nearly 100%.
They use cPanel for their control panel, which is much easier to use than many proprietary control panels other hosting companies use. It’s easy to set up an unlimited number of email addresses with them at no extra charge, and to define how large the email box will be. They also use AWStats, a site statistics program. You can’t beat the price for all they provide.
On top of that, Hostgator is powered by wind energy, and they've committed to 130% in renewable energy offsets. Since Hostgator is located in Texas, that's U. S.-branded Texas wind energy.
I’m not an affiliate of James S. Huggins (I don’t even think he has an affiliate program), but I am a fan of his email form script. This script is easy to use, easy to customize, safe and secure, and FREE. James gives awesome customer service, too, unlike the maker of a previous formmail script I used. Don't be put off by the size of the manual you can print out for his form. It just answers nearly every question you could have.
