Do you have experience and Hostgator reviews? I know that the Hostgator hosting is one of the biggest webhosting and also their online chat support is quite decent. What are your Hostgator reviews?Hostgator hosting technical details & limits (common for shared and reseller accounts:
memory_limit = 256Mb
max_execution_time = 30 seconds
max_input_time = 60 seconds
post_max_size = 64Mb
upload_max_filesize = 64Mb
Concurent mysql connections: 25

PS: these Hostgator limits canot be changed, but they are usually sufficing for well optimised small to medium sites.
Limits are set per shared account, resellers has much wider possibilities because they can distribute domains acros unlimited number of accounts (but they are getting limitted by disk space and bandwidth usage)My Hostgator Review
(bought Shared and Reseller hosting at BlackFriday 2012)
Order was quick, i got my account within 15 minutes ready. I was enligible for free cpanel accounts transfer from my old hosting. Ok they transfered it, frequently updated me on progress via email. The result? They transfered all accounts, 3 of them was around 9GB in size and they had to do Rsync manual transfer which taken around 3 days!!!!!
Ok, they emailed me its finished. I checked it and i needed to fix around 12 mysql databases from 3 cpanel accounts, they contained no data. Ok its problem of cpanel probably but also Hostgator problem because they did not veriffied transfer integrity!! As a result i lost money and alot of time fixing mysqls and alot of stress. I rate Hostgator transfer staff as mostly ignorant
and not professional because they was not able to check whether files and databases were 100% transfered. There is another issue with Hostgator - they suspended suddenly directory with aroun 10 addon domains (websites) because of high load. And i have been solving their f*ck* ticket and 3 replies whole 3 hours. That is teribly slow resonse time in case when your websites are down!! 3 hours downtime
because their slow technical support! Finally my reseller account got suspended withing 5 months because my custommers hosted files against Hostgator TOS. They refused to give me all backups! I dont recommend using Hostgator reseller unless you strictly check for your custommers hosted content.My HostGator rating:
Account setup: 9/10
Files Transfer from old hosting: 3/10
Uptime, reliability: 9/10
