HostGator: The Best Host For Bloggers!

Written by Sean Valant

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012, a well-respected site in the blogging community, recently conducted a comprehensive survey of 5,600 bloggers in order to determine the “Top 25 Hosting Companies” for bloggers.  HostGator took first place, with 1907 out of 5600 votes; just shy of 900 more votes than 2nd place received.  This is an honor that we at HostGator do not take lightly, and we are very happy to be able to share this news with you.

HostGator Named #1 Best Web Host For Bloggers

The voting criteria was based on which host the aforementioned 5,600 bloggers used and which host they would recommend to their peers.  With over 203 million blogs online today, blogging is an undeniable online presence these days.  There are 31 million bloggers in the US alone, with 43% of the total bloggers using WordPress, including this HostGator blog.

It is worth noting that this survey was completely unbiased and affiliate payouts were not a factor in this survey; it truly is simply the honest opinion of the blogging community.

Please visit in order to see a further breakdown of the related statistics as well as the other 24 hosts that made the cut.
