Hostgator India Review – Only for Indians ( 100% better than Hostgator US)
Purchased – 2 Dec 2019 In Black Friday Sale
Moved from Hostgator.com to Hostgator India
Why I purchased Hostgator India?
Warning! Dont go with Hostgator India, if you are targetting indian traffic
Hostgator.com is Horrible. Its is horrible for Indians. I thought to promote Hostgator.com and in return I can get $65 per sign Up.
But you know what, I just don’t want to do it. Because for Indians it is not worth buying. Specifically for those who are expecting indian traffic.
Only 3-4 days with hostgator US, I got frustrated with the ping time and website speed.
I threw lightest theme possible which generally scores 100/100 in google pagespeed.
But with that theme as well, Hostgator US was giving me average 78-80 Score.
When I threw Ecommerce theme. You know what? My scores went dead with average score of 10-15.
But when I was doing ping test for my server, I was getting A+ Results.
Ping was awesome for US, Canadan, Europe. But not for India.
Because servers were placed outside india.
Finally I decided to cancel my Hosting plan and immediately purchased Hostgator India.
