Hostgator Gift Card FAQ

1) Is the $50 gift card contest Real?

YES! I have received permission from hostgator to offer such a promotion.

2) How do I know you will do things Fairly?

of course there has to be a little bit of faith, but if you read our hostgator testimonials, you can see we have a long history going back to 2006 of running an ethical website and paying out the promised rebates.

3) How can I get entered into the draw?

Simply use the links provided on this site and be sure to set/clear your cookies first!.

4) You MUST use one of the coupons listed on this website only, Or the special Black Friday/Cyber Monday coupon that Hostgator automatically pre-fills into their shopping cart on those days, any other coupon may void the entry.

4) Can anyone claim this rebate?

Anyone who is a NEW customer of the host can enter the draw. If you are an existing customer or have another account with the host, you will not be eligible for the draw. This includes anyone in your household that may have or had accounts with Hostgator in the past. The checks they use to determine a duplicate order includes billing info, address, and payment methods.

5) How do I enter the draw?

After you sign up for a hosting package with the host, fill out our Entry Form. You must do this immediately after you order your hosting so that we can track your order properly. Failure to do so within 5 days of signing up for the Hosting account will disqualify your draw eligibility.

6) Is my contact information safe?

YES. Absolutely. We value your privacy. We will only use your email address to communicate with you about your gift card status. You will NOT be on a mailing list of any sort nor will your information be sold or bartered ever. see our Privacy Policy.

7) How long does it take to know if I have won?

It can take anywhere from 61-100 days for Hostgator to verify and approve orders. After this time, those users that qualify will be placed in a hat and drawn randomly. Winners of the draw will be contacted and winners first name and last initial will be posted here for verification purposes: Gift Card Draw Winners. Of course we can also add a link to your website if you send us a testimonial as well!

8) Why so long???

Because the host offers a money back guarantee, we must wait 60 days before your account is verified and paid (prevents fraud). It will take an extra 30 days if your first month is free by using a coupon code on their cheapest package.
e.g. if you sign up in September your draw will be held the first week of December.

11) Is there a way I can find out my entry status?

Yes, send us an email to including your domain and email address you used when filling out our entry form and we will be happy to let you know the status. Please note that we can not give you a status before the 61-100 day period has elapsed because that is when Hostgator reviews all orders.

Feel free to contact us with any other question you might have as well.
