    I'm considering Hostgator's reseller hosting, but I can't understand what happen if a single account uses too much cpu:

    Hostgator will close that single resold account or the whole reseller account?

    You should double check with them exactly what their policy is. Most providers will simply suspend the single account

    As said they will only suspend the account that has violated their ToS not the entire reseller account.

    Hostgator


    Do you mean bandwidth? You can set the options to limit the amount of bandwidth used by any individual account, if it goes over it just shuts down that one domain.

    Hostgator has great service, just click on the live chat option if you have any questions.

    CPU usage worries make sense. Any successful reseller hosting provider (and Hostgator is one) can only have one policy, and that is to suspend only the end user account that causes trouble.

    If you are starting use to much CPU I think you need to start thinking about VPS.

    I don't think he has a CPU problem right now - I think he is simply inquiring about the consequences if he does face one in the future.

    Go to Hostgator.com and click live help. They are awesome with customer service and have a bunch of live help techs. They'll be able to answer every question correctly for you.

    I think they will only suspend that particular account. Still if you are not sure, contact the support person on that company and confirm it. Its better to take care of your account and never violate the TOS.

    Was this due to CPU over usage? There's more than one reason for account suspensions. Also, if a reseller doesn't put any effort in weeding out "bad" customers, with their end user accounts often needing to be suspended due to spam, or other illegal activities, there may come a point when the provider will have to deal with the reseller in a more direct manner.

    In any case you need apply to your web hosting provider for explanations.

    It is a well-settled rule that a VPS is a better option than a reseller account. Hostgator has introduced a new vps offer. You might want to avail of this. The price is just competitive.

    Not necessarily, it depends what the OP is looking for in his hosting experience.

    I agree with you. However for the end user you may see a huge diffrence in the price also.

    I would suggest you not to focus your attention on one company and consider more hosts because the web hosting market is becoming more and more competitive and there are many offers that are cheap.
    You should be experienced enough in web hosting business before starting providing hosting services.

    Good suggestion and I'm fully agree with you regarding that. However a lot of people still believe that only one web hosting company is trusted and do not wish to lokk around and seek for the alternatives. Sad..

    Gator is okay, there are so annoying things such as their constant spam on my sites. That's just rude and enough for me to leave.
    Also the other crap in the control panel. On the other had they do have to protect they reputation and are very rich so you figure that hosting is really cheap en mase while the little guy has a long way to go.

    Why don't you contact HostGator sales and ask them this question directly. Their live chat is 24/7 so go ahead.

    "What do you mean bu the spam on your site? Can you please tell us more about that?"

    Even though i have my own seo components on my web, gator seems to be always behind it, some 404 show up but other go to the HOST GATOR spam, seemed to on certain site, so hard to control. I sure there is way through.
    I like to change all my dns so if there is no page there it will go to gator spam page. They make money like this no doubt, some registrar do this too. google search netfirms.ca you see what i mean.
    The other thing is the control panel with gator is littered with other spammy offers, that i would avoid activating such attract that turned out be a big head ach to remove.

    On the up side that is their custom control panel. the basic control panel has some bugs that you don't notice for some time so i think gator fixes this for you. Which in the long run saves them money too because any bugs take a lot of support to fix.

    Gator a good choice too because they have so much to lose if they service is bad. So i was way over my nodes but they don't care, they have to stick to their unlimited. speed was not bad, but it is inconsistent.
    Accord to google web aps my site where consistently running below average speed.
