I highly doubt EIG wont do what they did to all of their other acquisitions when it comes to Arvixe.

Endurance paid $17.6 million cash at closing for the interests of the company. A second payment is due in 12 months; this $4.4 million payment brings the deal up to $22 million.

Well there always is a solution and we all know it - leave the company providing bad service. This industry is oversaturated and a lot of other hosts/datacenters will gladly take Arvixe's place - and accept their ex-customers - if things begin to look ugly.

Just business.

I don't think customers of Arvixe might happy hearing this news. They have also acquired Hostgator but kind of services customers are getting can be seen on several forums.

We shall all just have to sit back and watch how things go. I know on arvixes blog a week or two ago, they still had a post up bashing EIG for their uptime and provided unique coupon codes from some of the major brands.

yes and on several forums etc. Arvand has openly stated he would never sell to EIG as he values his clients, so just shows wave enough $$$$ about and anything can happen.

There have always been negative posts here and there about Arvixe (not saying they deserve it). Now that EIG bought them, the same issues will be blamed on them. And the only thing that has changed is a piece of paper. Another demonstration of the troubleshooting skills and analytical minds of the self-proclaimed experts.

But you have to admit that service on any EIG acquisition does down downhill fast

Have we seen any additional reports of service problems since the acquisition?

From our experience.

Doing business with anything EIG is as bad as flying on a 13 hour overnight redeye sitting next to someone that hasn't has a bath in a year and hasn't brushed their teeth in 2 years and is sitting there eating an onion.

Well Brent if you have been in the hosting industry as long as me and some members on here you will know what happens to any company that is taken over by EIG.

They go downhill fast
