We are proud to announce that HostGator is our "Best Shared Host" for 2013.
We have hosted with them for several years and they always do a fantastic job. The have fast, well-configured servers, excellent tech support, and low competitive prices.
We feel that if you are new to hosing or getting started with a new site, HostGator is a great place to start. They have everything you need and when your site grows, you can move into a bigger plan that best fits your needs.
If you are using Joomla or another open source CMS your site will work without issue since they use cPanel; the industry standard hosting control panel.
Congratulations to HostGator on being our 2013 Best Shared Host!
