We’ve been very busy around here lately, implementing new and exciting features and services that will provide our customers with an even better webhosting experience. Our domain registrar service is nearing completion, and we are also looking into other technologies and services that may be implemented as well. One of the services that we are pretty excited about it CloudFlare, so let’s dive right in and see what it’s all about.
Gators and ninjas protecting your sites!
We are proud to announce a new partnership with Cloudflare, Inc. to offer their Cloudflare protection to our customers. Cloudflare acts a transparent filtering proxy, sitting between your site and it’s visitors. Cloudflare blocks hackers and spammers from attacking your site, and also speeds up load times by acting as a content delivery network and serving cached copies of your static files from a proxy which is closer to your customers. On average, Cloudflare customers have seen a 30% improvement in page load times. In it’s basic mode, Cloudflare is free. We are the first host to integrate Cloudflare protection into our control panel. If you are a shared customer, you can enable Cloudflare protection for your domains by clicking on the orange Cloudflare icon in your control panel. We are working on a non-branded version for reseller, vps, and dedicated customers as well, but in the mean time our admins have a script to enable protection for any domain you would like. Simply open a ticket and let us know!
Front Row Joe is spotted at HostGator!
Our Houston employees were in for a treat when we found out that none other than Front Row Joe would be making a special appearance along with his #87 Nascar for photo opps and signature signing. Everyone had a great time taking photos and speaking with Joe, wishing him the best of luck for all of his upcoming races.
Know L.A.M.P. ?
We are still in search of Linux administrators with experience in cPanel/WHM. If you’d like to get paid doing what you already have a passion for, go ahead and check out our jobs page here.
If you are not a Linux admin kind of person, but know someone who is, you can get paid by referring them, if they are hired on and stay with us for 90 days, you get paid! Visit our referral page for more information.
We want your feedback!
We are all about the customer here at HostGator. Having said that, we would like you to get involved and share your opinion as to what type of content you would like to see more of within our company blog. To share your opinion, and to offer your suggestions, please see our blog post here.
That’s all for this month, until next month, stay prosperous.

For a limited time, VOIPo is offering all HostGator customers a complete package of 3 services for the price of 1. Simply order a VOIPo phone service package (unlimited calling to US/Canada starting at $8.25 per month) using coupon code GATORPACK and get these services free:
1.) FREE Toll-Free Number (Only pay for minutes used)

This is a great way to save lots of money and have all your
communication needs covered. Statistics show that having toll-free and fax numbers can drastically increase your sales.
Since both of the free services offered normally sell for $4.95 per
