    Namecheap vs Godaddy vs Hostgator?

    I do a research and found that these providers are selling domain names and hosting packages. Are all of them good. I registered a few domains with Namecheap and Godaddy but never tried their hosting from these providers. I need your experience and give me some help. thanks

    Namecheap is good for both the domain name registrations and web hosting. I am using them from past 3 months and never had any issues with them. Support is also very good. Godaddy is good for domain names but their hosting sucks. So, according to me go with Namecheap.

    This comment is helpful since I only want to buy a domain name. So I guess I can use go daddy.

    I would have accepted hosting services too but I am not ready to lose my secured connection from my blog. But since you mentioned that namecheap is good, I will recommend it to my friends who want their website to be hosted and also get a new domain.

    I think namecheap and godaddy are good for domain name purchases. I prefer Namecheap though as I am a current customer. I have never used Hostgator hosting as currently I am a Hostinger customer. But I've heard mostly good things about Hostgator.

    For best web hosting services I would recommend you to go with Hostgator, Siteground, Inmotionhosting. All of them are one of the best hosting provider with good up-time and great customer services. I highly recommend them to all.

    That is a matter of opinion when it comes to Hostgator. They are an EIG owned company and you risk big issues if you decide to use them. I speak from experience (unfortunately) when it comes to EIG companies and the bad things that you may have to go through. Hostgator should be avoided for both domains and hosting. Avoid them at all costs unless you have a strong desire to gamble with your domains, hosting and sanity!

    Namecheap is great for both hosting and domains. GoDaddy is good for domains if you don't mind being always pushed to buy additional services/products all the time but I would avoid their hosting services.

    Godaddy is horribly overpriced and all of the extra features that are usually free everywhere else are paid on GoDaddy.
    Hostgator is just terrible all around.
    Namecheap is one of better ones in both pricing and quality. Their basic hosting plan is good and cheap, but I would avoid their reseller plans.

    Yes you are right about Hostgator but for Godaddy, they are still be good for domain names and I also am having several domains there.

    Namecheap's plans are pretty good, cheap and reliable. I'd say to go for it, because they are also very beginner friendly. I've not had very good experiences with GoDaddy and HostGator, so I'd not recommend them to you.

    Well mate I have use all the 3 none of them are now worth any more. Before traditional C panel is getting out of the market due to modern technology like Cloud which make every thing easy by automating every things on clicks. I wouldn't recommend any instead of spending your money on these provider you can buy a quality cloud hosting which fit in your business. Honestly I wouldn't risky my business by picking a cheap host. All the best.

    I certainly would not recommend Hostgator for domains or for hosting. GoDaddy is fine for domains, but not for hosting. Namecheap is great for domains, but I've never used their hosting, so no comment there.

    every company has its own expertise, hostgator is undisputed king of hosting whereas go daddy and namecheap is for domain mainly.

    I never used godaddy for personal use but many of my clients have hosting with the and my experience with them is not so good. I never get good support from them. Things are just complicated with them.

    Same goes with hostgator. I faced support issue with them as well. When we are dealing with these popular providers, we expect good support but I faced issues with them all the times.

    And for namechap, I do not have any experience with them for hosting.

    Hostgator or Bigrock are good for both domain name registration and web hosting. I have been using them for the last 2+ years and there was never any problem with them. It’s Supporting team always ready to help him 24*7. Godaddy and namecheap also best in domain registration but problem create in hosting. So, according to me go with Hostgator or bigrock.

    Generally speaking I think you should just concentrate more on getting more traffic to your site rather than considering how much your hosting can handle.Name:  DOUBTCELLNEW(FINAL).zip.png
