Hostgator has not started off the new year with rave reviews. The key in web hosting is to provide high quality customer service as domaingood points out in his/her post. There are some good providers out there who understand this and are taking note of the exodus from Hostgator. Many good mid level web hosting providers are doing a better job at providing high quality support than the big known names are at this point.

HostGator is considered a large buisness when it comes to hosting and domains and things of that nature. There are so many mixed opinions about HostGator that it is hard to judge whether they would be a good company for you. I personally like HostGator and believe they do an excellent job. But then again, I am one of many people who has an opinion on HostGator.

Personally, I think they can't go wrong with a film / concept like that. Definitely the best web hosting short film I've seen all year.
Shooting a short video like this, which is funny, no doubt has anything to do with web hosting. Whoever puts efforts on videos like this, instead of focusing on improving the reliability of service, is definitely going wrong.

Web hosting is not that hard to do if you do not cheap customers offering "unlimited" if you do not use tricks to limit the resource usage and if you invest in quality infrastructure and network. a good service speaks for itself.

Almost in daily basis I can see someone complaining about HostGator services after they have been bought by EIG.

Having anything to do with an EIG host is your loss, their gain.

That's your prejudiced imagination getting the best of you. You could find complaints daily before the takeover. But that does not mean HG is no good. With hundreds of thousands of hosted sites a few complaints a day is a fraction of 1% of base.

You could find daily complains and positive reviews about them before, but lately you will find that there are many complains about them.

If you read most of the recent complains (including this thread) you will reach to the conclusion that the reliability of HG services changed as well as the quality of the customer support are decreased.

So, surely it's not prejudiced imagination!

Hi all, I also used hostgator in the Past. They have not good support now also their servers are overloaded which is not a good thing. When I was hosted with them my pages loaded very slowly. They are using softlayer data center but they have oversold their all servers which is not good.

Hostgator is now with EIG's own personal datacenter. EIG pulled them out of Softlayer after EIG bought Hostgator.

so they have gone downhill for sure since being bought by EIG, no question, but for the most part would you say they are still much better than godaddy and a lot of the other shared hosts even with the decline?

Most hosting clients will understand some downtime but when it comes to support, you need solid services. When anyone considers web hosting they might want to put support at the top of the list. It seems that low quality support services are still a big part of the issue that EIG is having if you look across hosting forums over the course of the past year.

Big brands have big reputation and sometimes, it is very tough to maintain it. They have many issues to resolved and it is observed on many forum posts from many unsatisfied customers.

All that is true, but there are examples of successful scalable growth and HostGator just might not be one of them.
