Tell Me About the Business Hosting Plan

The Business plan is our complete e-commerce solution for Shared web hosting.

The Business plan is a more powerful version of our Baby plan, built for small businesses. Though our Baby plan offers unlimited disk space, bandwidth and hosting as well, the Business plan has something special to set it apart.

The Business plan can support hosting for unlimited domains, and it includes more e-commerce features than a Baby plan, like a private SSL and a toll-free support number of your own, making it the perfect solution for creating an online store.

The Business plan includes:

You may request your free SSL for multiple years, to avoid needing to renew it, for an additional fee:

Upgrade

If you have a Hatchling, Baby, or Personal Plan, you may upgrade your account to take advantage of the Free Private SSL Certificate by using the steps outlined at How Do I Upgrade My Account to a Better Plan? Once your account has been upgraded, please follow the above instructions to then get your FREE private SSL.

Once you've purchased a Business plan, you can order the Positive SSL certificate directly from your Billing Portal at no charge. See the following article for step by step directions:

To order the Free Dedicated IP address that is included with the plan, please contact us via phone or Live Chat to request one.

You may keep the SSL as long as you are hosting with HostGator; however, like all SSL certificates, the SSL must be renewed every year from the SSL Certificates icon in the Hosting tab of your Billing Portal.

Free Domain Registration

All newly purchased Linux Shared Hosting Packages, on a 12 month or longer billing cycle, include 1 Free Domain. After the first year, the domain will renew at the regular annual rate.

The Business plan no longer includes the VoipO Toll Free Number. If you wish to have this service or if you already have the VoipO service, please contact them directly via sales@voipo.com with any inquiries.
