      Rahul if you are planning to host only one site, you should go for hatchling plan and if more than one you should go for baby plan.
      I suggest go for one year hosting plan and use coupon code shoutmeloud25 to get 25% off.
      Yes you can upgrade your plan anytime by asking the customer support. You need to pay the difference in the amount.
      Do let me know if you have any more questions.

    HostGator is a great web hosting company, there servers are fast and very stable.

    Anyway, I would also recommend GreenGeeks. I think GreenGeeks is equally good as HostGator if not better, furthermore they are a Green web hosting company – these days it’s just better to pay more attention to our mother earth! :)
