Geez, I didn't realize EIG owned that many of them. Money talks I guess.

As for the backups - most hosts do have in their TOS that they are not responsible for backups. Many of those hosts still have daily backups as a bonus to their clients.

Either way, if you're a customer of anything, always take responsibility into your own hands. Never rely on someone else.

I learned the hard way to always make my own back ups. Even if the host makes the back ups it is still a good idea to make your own.

I had a host that was making back ups but also went out of business and if I didn't have my own back up I would have had to start over.

I though A Small Orange was still owned by Brent of HostGator and not included in their sale.

Yes it was not in the original sale of hostgator, but i think Brent got disheartened so sold it as a separate sale to EIG

Unfortunate. However you are in luck with the hosting market at most reputable hosts will migrate you to their service free of charge. So need not worry about that part. As for hostgator, I have not personally used them but I have heard of reputation. Couple of friends have worked for them as well.

Prior to their many internal policy changes no. They had a very restrictive work environment and no incentives or benefits for working. Furthermore, they were quick to show the boot to people who do not meet "their standard," yet would hire just about anyone with 2 feet.

LOL that is funny. When I had hostgator over 5 years ago the support was lacking. I talked to like 3 different techs and half the time they had no idea what I was talking about. Eventually I added Brent to my skype or was it msn any way I started getting support directly from him.
I was suspended for having an rpg system though. RPG systems are not something they allow. It took until a cpu issue for them to even find that I had an rpg system. I had them for less than a year though. I no longer have an rpg system as it has not been updated in over 5 years as well. I actually think the last update for it was around the time I got hostgator. Let me look at when that actually was. Ah back in 2007.

You mean do not allow rpg system?
Some hosts I had didn't care unless it caused cpu issues. The game used more cpu cycles the longer it went with out a reset so on some hosts I just reset it once a month. I actually did that up until the day I stopped using it. Which I think was about 2 years ago. Just looked and yep we stopped using it as of July 2011, which I guess is actually less then 2 years.

I was using vps at that time. So I guess it was not that long ago that I was able to go back to shared. I am so glad to be able to go back to shared though. It is so much cheaper.

HostGator used to be good, but I agree, now they are going down the drain!!

Honestly I wouldn't put that to much on the fact that EIG acquired them and more to do with their growth.

They are struggling to hire and train the right people to cover their constantly rapid growth, just imagine the daily signups they get - For the past few years I don't think their has been a day they haven't been hiring new people and investing into getting qualified people.

Just to show you how much they try to get new people in the doors, they've invested heavily to get new employees from paying $5000 relocation assistance for new employees, cut marketing budgets to invest that money into hiring campaigns etc...

At the same time somewhere on WHT it was noted that they didn't do what Brent did and they plan to do so soon (cut marketing again to invest that into hiring campaigns).

I really do hope HostGator pulls through like they did before (and I believe they will).

We shouldn't all just attack HostGator because its now an EIG brand, many other factors come into play when considering a company going down hill, you have to remember the same management team etc... are still in place at HostGator running HostGator as normal (unsure of how much influence EIG has behind the scenes but generally things seem to have stayed the same with the exception for struggling to keep up with growth).
