I dont care what anyone says, from my personal experience, HOSTGATOR sucks for q2a. They will ask you to optimize your script if their server is not able to process the queries leading to mysql crashing.
I'd recommend you to set up a cloud server for q2a. Its not that difficult to set up one, and is totally doable with all the accessible how-tos on the internet these days.
Avoid Hostgator at all costs. Even their Cloud services suck.
