Hostgator Web Hosting Review


Rubbish. Stay away. – Been with #hostgator for 8 years. Used to be decent. Now, there is basically no support. Site went down frequently and after a few days of you submitting a ticket, someone will come back and tell you “I just checked it, it’s working fine.” Customers never received emails. Totally unreliable and useless. I have now moved to another host where for less money I get allocated more resources and support tickets answered within 15 or 20 minutes. Stay away from #hostgator.

    Great video, I found it informative and I think I may sign up for blue host and give them a try. I subscribed so that will make 3. Have you recorded on other videos on another channel because you seem very familiar?

    HostGator is not a good company anymore. It was one of the best shared hosting companies in the world at one time (2007-2012), but was gutted by the corporate entity EIG who is backed by the likes of Goldman Sachs and Warburg Pincus.

    After the sale, numerous changes were made that screwed the clients and employees. The first would be the move of the datacenter from a state-of-the-art, reputable datacenter provider (Softlayer, formerly The Planet) to a DC they were building in Provo, Utah. This, of course, was sold to clients under the idea that their websites and servers would be much better and blah blah, but in reality it came down to lowering operating costs since HG was now owned by a publicly traded company (EIG) and the boys at Goldman Sachs wanted their returns pronto. It was so horribly setup that there was a single switch that was a source of failure and it had zero redundancy on it, so guess what eventually happened? MANY hours of downtime for large sections of the clients.

    Next is that they laid off many employees, which is understandable if the company is suffering and needs to survive, but that wasn't the case. It turns out the owner of EIG, Hari, has close family members in India that run outsourcing firms (Glowtouch is one, they've since leased a small office in KY to make them appear legit LOL). Fuck EIG and fuck Hari.
