Founded in a dorm room at Florida Atlantic University by Brent Oxley, HostGator has grown into a leading provider of Shared, Reseller, VPS, and Dedicated web hosting. HostGator is headquartered in Houston and Austin, Texas, with several international offices throughout the globe. Since our inception in 2002, we have won numerous industry awards for our hosting and support. Be it for bloggers, Wordpress, Joomla or virtually any other niche, we have received an award acknowledging our dependability or services. Despite our past, we certainly have no desire to rest on our laurels and simply polish our trophy case. Awards are always an honor, but our true purpose and value resides in the actual service that we provide to our customers each and every day.
