I have had the best experience with Host Gator, particularly with their customer service... 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and I have never waited more than two minutes for a live operator. I currently have a Reseller Account and a VPS Account, and both are fabulous. Host Gator's live chat is brilliant; Kudos to you Host Gator!!!! I plan on hosting with you exclusively. GREAT STUFF!!!
I previously had my site with a very large hosting firm (whose name I will not reveal) and had very negative experiences with them. System outages, slow response to technical problems, slow server speed etc. I finally had it and began searching for a new company to transfer to. I was extremely nervous and could not afford to lose any more business but I finally found Host Gator and was very impressed with what I saw. The move went super smooth for me and the team at Gost Gators went above and beyond in helping me transfer my site over to their servers. On top of that, the speed is much better than with my old host. I needed a special request- hosting a logo securely for my PayPal checkout... this was no problem for Host Gator. I want to say a big thank you to Jesse and everyone at the Host Gator team. They have been incredibly helpful and have gone above and beyone the call of duty in helping me transfer my domain over to Host Gator. Needless to say, I think the entire team at Host Gator is phenomenal when it comes to customer service. I would highly recommend anyone considering hosting to go with them.
We started working with IDT in 2016. They tout serving over 32 billion minutes annually and 4 route divisions to choose from. The route divisions are irrelevant however, here I will explain why: The level of service/quality you *actually* receive depends on how greedy your Account Manager is, and the genie behind the curtain that changes up the routes to accommodate their desired margins. The end result of course is route instability and frequent calls to your support desk from angry customers reporting issues ranging from False Answer Service to calls not completing to legitimate destinations and wondering why they are paying for Platinum service only to receive problems typically associated with Silver-grade routes. With IDT we'd literally pass weeks at a time without issues, and suddenly a range of issues with many different destinations arise at the same time. We submit the ticket and the issue would eventually be resolved, but only after waiting > 24 hours for a response. In the IDT Express portal you are able to select which routing division, but in the end IDT simply does not honor your selection, and will route your traffic over the routes they choose behind the scene. It's really a pointless set up they offer. Go with Tata, NTT or BT if your customers' satisfaction is paramount.
