HostGator recently announced that they are adding yet another valuable service to their list of best web hosting products and features: domain registration. At the end of September HostGator announced on their blog that within the next few weeks they will begin offering domain registration from their very own domain registrar service. This is exciting because it will give HostGator more flexibility and control over the domain types and prices that they will be able to offer. This is exciting and important to you as the customer because it cuts out one more middle man involved in your total web hosting experience and will provide you with cheaper prices and more domain registration options.
Another great benefit of having HostGator offer their own domain registration, is support. Currently if you host with HostGator but have a support issue regarding your domain registration, there isn’t a whole lot HostGator can do to help you. They can give you some basic pointers and information but ulitmately will have to refer you to whomever you registered your domain with. Once they begin offering their own domain registration service, they will have access to all your domain registration information and be able to assist you with any questions you may have.
If you are at all familiar with HostGator you probably know how incredible their support is. Adding this HostGator support standard to your domain registration service is definitely going to be a plus. A domain name is arguably the most important part of any website. Registering a domain that is simple, short, easy to spell, and easy to remember will make your marketing so much easier. If your domain is something that reflects the content of your site and doesn’t take any stretch of the imagination to figure out what you offer, people will remember it and share it with others. Figuring out the perfect domain, that is still available to register, is the biggest part of your battle. Once you are successful in that you will want to be sure that you have complete control over that domain so that you never lose it.
Choosing a reliable web host with a great reputation is important but choosing a domain registrar with the same reputation, may be the most important thing you do. Cheap web host providers are all around but making sure your domain is secure is critical. Because HostGator has such a great record with all their web hosting services, we are confident that their domain registration services will be just as great! Keep an eye out for this new service that will be available soon. Use our HostGator link below to visit their official site for the latest details and information.
