Yes, that's great news indeed.

I am new to internet marketing, and i would also recommend hostgator to all. About from their pricing, their service & support are just excellent. I found the technical team to be very patient, responsive & helpful.

Know what guys? At times i even persuaded them to do some coding for me... like removing the footer links and other hack stuff!.... they always gladly agree. For a newbie, i cannot stress how relieving that is! Gotta love hostgator!

Now, here's a piece of news you might find useful.

Just a few months ago, Hostgator launched another data center... in India. Here is the link www.hostgator.in

Oh, btw, i even persuaded them to host my soft porn blog!!! Remember sex sites and stuff are legally not allowed to be hosted in India!

If you have read up on Hostgator, and are thinking of signing up, i think signing up with them make much sense.

Here's one simple reason why,

Apart from the same quality service & support, the India center offers excellent latency. Because it is new & because internet usage & traffic isn't as huge in India as in US - your sites get a faster load time - a great convenience for your visitors, of course.

How does the pricing work?

Is the Indian rupee cost equivalent to the US $ cost?

Are there currency exchange issues to worry about?

Hi Johnno,

The price is almost equivalent. You just pay indian currency equivalent of the dollar.

Right now it is like $1 = Rs. 44. 44 (as of today)

Hostgator.in has the same offers at the same price point as its parent Hostgator.com, the difference is it is in India, and it provides excellent latency for reasons i mentioned earlier.

In fact, I have a suspicion it might even turn out to be lower for you guys there who would pay in dollars.

Due to this latency reason (going by their promotional promise), they are quite aggressively advertising on this side of the world.

I don't think there should be any issues paying with your credit card, all they will do is apply the current currency exchange rates as on that particular day.

For details, just chat to their tech team over the internet by going to www.hostgator.in. The team is indeed very responsive & helpful. At least to a newbie like me.

Hope this answers your queries.

Regards
Willy
