Third Party Design and Script Support

At HostGator, we pride ourselves on our dedication to customer service, including support for our various hosting services, servers and applications. While our agents will do their best to offer as much support as possible, there are some issues that fall beyond our scope of support.

HostGator agents are highly trained specifically for our server environments, including troubleshooting common server issues, email problems and other basic server related issues. While our agents may have outside knowledge of common web design issues and coding, we are unable to provide assistance with custom coding, web design, third party script design and troubleshooting and website optimization outside of basic internet research.

Areas Beyond Our Scope of Support

While we do support software installations found in QuickInstall, we would be unable to assist with site design and customization, including WordPress themes and plugins. Other examples of genres beyond our scope of support include but are not limited to the following:

  • PHP
  • Perl
  • Python scripting
  • shell and bash commands
  • HTML
  • XHTML
  • CSS
  • Java
  • .asp coding

In addition to the list above, site and Dedicated Server/VPS customization beyond the standard setup of the server is also outside of our scope.
