HostGator Server

HostGator offers a list of non-compatible plug-ins, languages, scripts, extensions, etc. This can be very helpful in avoiding the disappointment that comes with making assumptions. The list is divided into what works with shared/reseller hosting plans and what works with dedicated/VPS hosting plans. Also specified are items that only work with a Microsoft Windows server, only work with a Linux server, or must be enabled by a HostGator agent.
