HostGator has launched a brand new cloud hosting platform – a move that’s frankly a few years behind the rest of their competition but hey – better late than never! The new platform offers up to 4x the resources that the current HostGator shared hosting plans offer, and claim a 2x improvement in website load times.
Probably the biggest benefit, in my opinion, is the ability to scale you’re hosting up to 8 cores and 8GB of RAM within a single dashboard click.
Plus you get a new performance dashboard that lets you keep a close eye on you’re website load times, you’re server’s uptime statistics, and you’re general load average.
All of the features of the current HostGator shared hosting plans are also included in the cloud packages, with the additional benefits outlined above. That means that the unmetered storage and bandwidth is also offered on the new cloud hosting plans. Check out the new HostGator cloud hosting plans here.
