We've been doing this since the Jurassic (aka since 2002), so we know that to help newbies and pros alike that it takes all kinds of plans. Our tools are designed to grow with you, so you'll never outgrow us (unlike with some of those other guys, just sayin'). That's what being unstuckable is all about.
Get your first year of domain
registration on us. See terms
In order to qualify for (1) one free domain name registration, you must sign up for a 12, 24 or 36 month HostGator Shared, WordPress or Cloud hosting plan. Offer only applies to domains available at the time of hosting signup, and on their initial purchase term. This offer is NOT available under any other hosting plans, nor can it be combined with any other offers. After the first year, your domain will renew at the regular rate.
If your hosting plan includes a free domain and you cancel your hosting within the first year, a non-refundable $17.99 USD domain fee (+ any applicable taxes) for the domain name will apply. Please note that newly registered domains cannot be transferred to another registrar during the first 60 days of the registration period.
Discount will be automatically applied to your cart at checkout.

How much bandwidth will my plan include?
Bandwidth is "Unmetered" which means you are not charged according to the amount of bandwidth you typically use in the normal operation of a personal or small business website.
However, we do require all customers to be fully compliant with our Terms of Service and to not exceed 25% or more of system resources for longer than 90 seconds.
What happens if I exceed usage?
If we have concerns about your account's bandwidth utilization, you will receive an email asking you to reduce usage.
It is rare for a customer who is managing a personal or small business website to exceed our usage policies.
