  3. On the Make a Payment page, you will see three sections.
    • Current Invoices
      This section will display all your due and past due invoices. Simply put a checkmark on the invoice(s) you wish to pay and check the total amount in the Payment Totals section below the page.

    • Pre-Pay Packages
      The Pre-Pay Packages section allows you to pre-pay for the active packages you have in your account by selecting the package(s) and choosing your preferred term from 1 month up to 3 years in the dropdown menu. The total amount will be displayed in the Payment Totals section.

      Important Note:
      You will not be able to make a pre-payment if there are due or past due invoices on your account. If you have questions regarding your due invoice(s), please do not hesitate to reach out to us via phone or Live Chat. We are here to help!

  6. Once done selecting your preferred payment method, click Make Payment.

Check or Money Orders

Checks must be in U.S. dollars and drawn from a U.S. bank. Please make the check or money order payable to HostGator and send via postal mail to:

5005 Mitchelldale Street, Suite 100
Houston, TX 77092

Please also include your domain name on the check memo to help us locate your account.

Note: HostGator cannot credit or apply a payment to your account until the payment is received, deposited, and cleared. Payments by check or money order sent via postal mail may, therefore, require more time to process.

Bank Wire

Another accepted method of payment is payment by bank wire. For more information on this method of payment, please see:


Switching Payment Methods

You are welcome to switch how you pay at any time. There is usually no need to contact HostGator. Please follow the instructions for a one-time payment using the new method. If you pay an invoice before we charge your credit card, we will not automatically charge your card.

If you experience issues with payments, please contact HostGator's Support via phone or Live Chat, and we will be happy to assist you.
