Billing Portal Overview

portal

HostGator has developed a billing and support system that allows you to manage everything related to your billing account.

Note: The billing/support system is purposely separate from your web hosting control panels for security reasons. This way, you can give a web developer, friend or associate access to your hosting control panel to build or update your website without giving them access to your billing information.

Special Note About Invoices

Invoices in GB Client will be generated and automatic payment attempted five days ahead of time for any packages on a less than Annual cycle. Annual cycles and longer will generate invoices fifteen days ahead of time.

If you do not pay with automatic payments, GB Client will attempt to send you an email notification about the new invoice. Remember, you will not receive the "invoice generated" email notification if you have a credit card on file which automatically pays that invoice.

You can even change between your primary domains if you have multiple shared packages.
