I'm not a Hostgator client but from a quick search on the web, it seems that they support Joomla 2.5 and are Joomla friendly:Falcon22 wrote:I am ready to sign up for web hosting and get Joomla 2.5.
I want to go with hostgator but on the shared plan PHP 5.2 is the default and they offer PHP 5.3 if you enable it, the instructions are on this link:

If I enable PHP 5.3 on hostgator will Joomla 2.5 run or should I be looking for a different host?

I doubt that control panels would be updated yet with Joomla 2.5 so you might need to do a manual install to start with but this is true of all hosting companies.
