The Downfall of HostGator

HostGator was founded in 2002 by Brent Oxley. HostGator gradually became a popular web host and by the year 2006, they were already hosting some 200,000 domains. Success was apparent and inevitable, as more and more people registered for this high-quality and affordable web host.

In 2012, however, Brent Oxley decided to sell his company to one of the industry’s giants called Endurance International Group (EIG). EIG is known for taking over web hosting companies of all sizes and maximizing their profits. As a result, customer satisfaction has always been compromised.

Here’s a video of a disgruntled customer who left HostGator after they’ve been sold to EIG:

Fast forward to 2014: People are still signing up for HostGator but they quickly learn that the service isn’t as great as they thought it was. They leave and search high and low for alternative hosting that won’t offer them the same bad experience as HostGator did… and this is where HostGator-Alternatives.com comes in.
