Also in 2008, HostGator made the courageous decision to go green and collaborated with Integrated Ecosystem Market Services to set up their "green hosting". A customer satisfaction survey also gave HostGator a 90% approval rating for its attention to clients and unparalleled service.
In 2012, HostGator was ranked as the #1 Best Host by Wordpress, with criteria based on speed/uptime, price, customer support, and available features.
