HostGator Turkey (hostgator.com.tr)

With the large amount of growth throughout the years, HostGator has been greatly expanding, both in the USA as well as internationally. We are proud to announce another member of the HostGator family with the launch of HostGator Turkey!

Can I switch from HostGator USA to HostGator Turkey?

Yes, you can transfer your account from HostGator.com to HostGator.com.tr (or vice versa). Simply email satis@hostgator.com.tr to take advantage of this!

Where is the Turkish datacenter?

Our Turkish office and support staff operate out of our United States offices in Houston and Austin, TX. We offer the same top notch performance with servers now hosted in Europe from Amsterdam, The Netherlands and on our own IP addresses. The latency to the European servers from within Europe is very low. The network path is also very short; it never travels out of Europe, so an international broken backbone will never affect access to your sites.

The access times for sites hosted on this low latency network from within Turkey and the European region is very fast. Also other account functions such as access to cPanel/WHM, emails, FTP, etc. see very fast speeds compared to overseas hosted websites.

Can I have a hosting plan or server with Turkey, but use American support?

Yes, if you host with HostGator Turkey, you have the option of receiving support in either English or Turkish. However, your server will be in Amsterdam.

Can I have a hosting plan or server with HostGator.com, but use Turkish support?

Yes, if you host with HostGator.com, you have the option of receiving support in either English or Turkish. However, your server will be in the United States.

Can I pay in Turkish lira?

No. Unfortunately at this time, the Turkish site does its billing in U.S. dollars (USD).

Does this mean HostGator.com is moving to Turkey?

No, HostGator Turkey is organized as a separate company and uses European servers and Turkish tech support staff. With HostGator Turkey, we can provide dedicated assistance for our Turkish clients, while maintaining U.S. based support and service for HostGator.com customers.

You can choose where your support and servers are located by picking HostGator.com for U.S. servers and support, and HostGator.com.tr for Turkish and European servers and support.
