Baby Plan

The Baby plan is our basic hosting plan for 2 websites. The Baby plan can support hosting for 2 domains, making it a better value than the Hatchling plan. While it has fewer ecommerce features than the Business plan, it can still create an online store.

The following is a list of what is available with the Baby plan.

For more information about our Shared hosting plan's features and current introductory rates, please check our front-of-site Shared Web Hosting.

If you are on an introductory or discounted hosting plan rate, you will remain at that price until the hosting plan renews. The hosting plan will be renewed at the regular rate. For more information about the Shared hosting price list, check out this article: Shared Web Hosting Price Chart.


Free first-year domain registration

HostGator offers free domain registration for newly purchased Shared hosting plans. You can have your 1 free domain on a 12-month or longer billing cycle. After the first year, the domain will renew at the regular annual rate.


Free SSL Certificate

All Shared hosting packages include a free SSL certificate, which provides security for your website domains by encrypting communications between the server and visitors to your website. The certificate also flags your site as secure by displaying a padlock icon in your address bar. To install your free SSL Certificate, please follow the directions in the article below.
