Can't do anything

Service used: Shared - Business Plan
First off, lets start with the really outdated user control panel, it's quite hard to find anything. Next up, there is virtually nothing you can do on your own- say restore a site to a previous version, which is a $99 fee for them...Read More

Don't Do It!

Service used: Shared - Professional Plan
They're service is quantity not quality. Worked with them for years, tied to windows servers that went down early and often. Tech support is a joke-just a secretarial service between real technicians and you. Find a reliable host ...Read More

Time out

Service used: Shared
This service is infuriating. It is totally ridiculous to "abruptly close the page that I am working on without saving the work". When I log in and then choose to edit my page or add to my page, it doesn't recognize that I am worki...Read More

Expert Overview

Quality hosting company backed by HostWay Corporation

Gate.com has been providing web hosting since 2006, but in 2007 they were purchased by HostWay Corporation, which is a large internet company that provides many different services.  During this time they also moved their data center into the existing HostWay Corporation facilities.  Gate.com is largely operating the same as the HostWay hosting services, though they maintain separate websites and service lists.

This can make it somewhat confusing, but overall they do provide good hosting services. The fact that they have been acquired by HostWay has allowed them to expand much more quickly both in the number of customers and the geographic location they are able to serve.

The bottom line when looking at this company is that whether you sign up through Gate.com or HostWay’s website, you’re going to be hosted in the same data centers and get the same levels of service.  The data center that is used is home to many big name websites including Disney, Wrigley, Fox News Channel and Wikimedia.

Uptime & Reliability

Very stable hosting used by many top companies

Uptime and reliability of the websites is one of the primary focuses for this company.  They operate out of high end data centers that offer fully redundant network connections and power supplies.  In addition, they have the ability to offer collocation services to those who are looking for the most reliable options possible.

There have been some customer complaints on social media and other sites that their shared hosting services can be slow or even have brief outages at times.  This is a fairly common complaint for shared hosting packages, so it is hard to know for sure whether this is just normal user complaints or there actually is an issue.  It could be that the shared hosting services are being oversold, which is not

Features

Wide range of hosting options to choose from

Gate.com offers hosting solutions for all types of sites.  You can choose from a number of shared hosting packages, which are set up to provide good, reliable hosting for entry level sites. This will include any personal sites, as well as small and even some medium sized business sites.

For those who need a higher level of service, there are quite a few VPS packages available.  These options will provide you with all the flexibility of a dedicated server, but at a fraction of the price.  The specific VPS packages can be configured based on your resource needs, which makes this a very popular option for most medium sized websites.

Finally, for those who need the most powerful hosting and the most configuration options, they offer dedicated server packages.  Most of the options will be based on pre-configured systems, but you can also create your own server based on your own needs.

Support

Great support available for all hosting customers

Gate.com offers great support options.  You can call their 24/7/365 technical support line to get any issues addressed right away.  They also have quite a bit of information available to help you to solve problems yourself, or avoid them all together.

Pricing

Standard industry prices at all levels

As you look through all the hosting package prices available you won’t likely be surprised.  They set their prices at similar levels to other hosting companies offering similar services.  Most people will agree that you are getting a good hosting service for a fair price no matter which hosting package you choose to go with from Gate.com.

Summary

Great hosting from a large internet hosting provider

No matter which of the hosting packages you choose, the chances are that you’ll get great service that you will be very happy with. They serve customers from around the world and have a strong reputation for being an easy company to work with.

Pros:

  • Trusted by many top name companies
  • Reliable hosting, especially for higher end packages
  • Fair pricing
  • Backed by Hostway Corp

Cons:

  • Some complaints of slow speeds on shared hosting
  • Hosting options are very similar to other Hostway Corp choices
