HostGator is a global provider of web hosting and related services.

In a Florida dorm room, HostGator's founder Brent Oxley weighs the pros and cons of naming his company either hostgator.com or gatorhost.com, ultimately choosing the former and registering the domain on October 22, 2002. As of February 1st, 2003, HostGator had 112 active customers. On the same date, one year later, there would be 1,031 active customers. Canada, being a much more fertile ground for System Admins than Boca Raton, resulted in the opening of HostGator's first international office. Having outgrown the initial 2,000 square foot office space, and exhausted the local Boca Raton talent pool from which to hire employees, HostGator moved to a 25,000 square foot building in Houston, Texas. Forty of the fifty Florida employees made the move to Texas, where HostGator has remained ever since. The HostGator blog published its first post, aptly titled "Welcome to Gator Crossing," on May 4th, 2007. "Gator Crossing" remains the official name of the blog to this day.

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.
