How To Verify Your HostGator Account Using Skype?

Hi! Everyone, hope you all are fine.
Today I am going to help you in verifying your HostGator hosting Account. Few days back I have buy a hosting account from HostGator and my account got active instant but after two days when I was trying to login to my HostGator account I couldn’t able to. I was gating an error Login Attempt Failed! So I got worried a lot, I have tried to login at least five times wondering maybe I am typing my password wrong.

But even after that when I couldn’t able to login to my account in my mind many things where coming like did they disable my account? or am I got hacked? and many other such things where coming. Then I remember they also have Live Chat service so I tried to contact with them through there Live Chat service then they told that I have to verify my account and I must have got an e-mail regarding account verification so I instantly opened my e-mail and checked that do I have received any such mail, after when I show that mail then I relaxed for five minutes as because I was worried very much about it then I read that mail that what I have to do to verify my account. Here what they mailed me

Hello,

Thank you for your order with HostGator.com!

In order for us to setup your account, we will need you to call in and verify your billing information.

If you are unable to call us, you can instead respond to this ticket with a scanned copy of a Photo ID such as a passport, or drivers license. In addition to a photo ID, please include a scanned copy of the credit card that was used in your account purchase  (assuming you purchased a hosting account with a credit card). For security purposes you can mask off all the digits of the card number except for the last 4 digits.

Please provide us with the above requested information at your earliest convenience to ensure that your account with HostGator is setup as soon as possible.

Toll-free: 1-866-96-GATOR, extension 1010
International: 001-713-574-5287

We are available 24/7, so please feel free to call us at your convenience. We apologize for any inconveniences that may result from this process.

Now I was wondering that if I called them it will going to cost me Rs.9/min (approx) and don’t know how much time will they take to verify. So I show what the other option I have to verify. Other option was to give the scan copy of my ID proof (issued by Govt.) and Credit card. And I don’t have my Credit Card I have used someone else card but due to some personal reason even I couldn’t able to send the scan copy of Credit card. Next day in my mind came I can try using Skype as they have option to call all over the world might I can try there Toll-free and if it worked it wont cost me anything.

As it came in my mind instantly
1.       I opened my Skype application
2.       Logged into my account
3.       Gone to call option (where I can dial the number)
4.       I selected US as country code
5.       Dialed there number

As it started ringing I got so happy as because I saved my money in making an international call. And when they verify it took 5 to 6 minutes to verify that mean I saved near about Rs.45  😀

Hope now you got how you can also save your money in verifying your HostGator account.
