Which HostGator Add On Services Should I Get?

When ordering a hosting package, HostGator offers several add-on services that you can purchase. For most people, I recommend that you don’t buy any of them.

The three services offered are SiteLock, CodeGuard, and Search Engine Visibility.

All these services have little value to most hosting customers and there are many free alternatives to each service.

It bothers me a little bit that HostGator offers these add-ons. I think very few people purchase one of these with an actual understanding of what they’re buying and why. Mostly this is a way to prey on customers who have a lot of money to spend and don’t really understand web hosting and web infrastructure.

Bottom line: If you don’t have some specific reason to think you have a special need for these services that the average person doesn’t, then don’t buy any of them. Save your money.
