When expanding into a new market there are bound to be a few bumps and bruises along the way. However, HostGator is hoping their previous experiences will ease the transition.


HostGator has recently announced the launch of HostGator China and HostGator Russia. The Web hosting provider will deliver service and support for users in China and Russia in their native languages. With the expansion of their services into China and Russia, HostGator now offers localized web hosting capabilies in five countries.


"Our sites in India and the United States were already receiving a steady flow of traffic, including from business owners and entrepreneurs in China and Russia, so extending our platform, service, and support to these markets made sense," said Adam Farrar, general manager of HostGator.


The hosting provider is the second brand owned by Endurance International Group that has entered the Chinese market as well as Endurance's first to enter the Russian market.


HostGator currently sits at number four on Website Magazine's list of the Top 50 Web Hosting Providers.
