Happy 10th Birthday, Snappy!

Monday, October 22, 2012 by

HostGator.com was registered on October 22nd, 2002; Ten years ago today.  A lot has happened in that time, but we have remained true to the initial vision for the company throughout. It is with great pride and a strong sense of achievement that we acknowledge this anniversary.

Customer Service remains king here at HostGator.  It is the foundation upon which the entire company has been built.  We have had our growing pains, and learned the inherent lessons therein, but we have never wavered from that initial desire to provide outstanding Customer Service.

As we leave our single-digit years behind and walk confidently into our double-digits, we are stronger and more ready to take on the future than ever before.  We thank every single one of you who have allowed us to serve you over the years, and we welcome everyone to continue walking with us on this amazing journey.

Do you follow us on Twitter and Facebook? If so, you could win free hosting or even one of our infamous and coveted plush Snappys!  We will be doing random give-aways all day today in celebration of our anniversary.  Like us on FaceBook and follow us on Twitter for your chance to win!  In fact, leaving a comment on this very blog post could potentially be worthwhile as well, but be sure to use a valid email address.

And without further ado: Happy Birthday, Snappy!

    I have used Arvixe, Go daddy, award space and Hostgator. The best by far i have experienced is Hostgator. It has one of the best , the only best Customer service and the the service it provides never had a downtime. I Recommend Hostgator to each and every one. Especially those who are new will get a lot of help from the support. Take my word and try it. You are bound to love the service

      Due to recent changes on the FB side, you should click the FB button at the top of the post once, then click it again to confirm. It seems to be functioning normally at this time.

      Thanks to everyone and keep those birthday wishes coming, you’re making for lots of smiling faces here in the offices! …not to mention lots more free hosting to give away today!
