Now this is a big news for all the Hostagtor customers (including me), as recently the company has been sold to Endurance International Group. The final bid between the CEO’s (Mr. Hari Ravichandran, CEO of EIG and Brent Oxley CEO of HOSTGATOR) ended with this lump sum amount of $225 million USD.
The news has come more as a shock for the Hostgator customer, but before making any final decision , first lets know a bit about EIG.
Till now EIG group has already acquired many web hosting companys like Bluehost, iPAGE, VPSLInk, Fatcow and many more. And now with the recent acquisition of Hostagotor (one of the best hosting company), EIG has strengthened its hold in the Web-hosting market.
As of now, mixed reviews are observed as some people are hoping for a better future but some are against it, to know more about the present scenario, you may even visit this forum “http://www.webhostingtalk.com”
So what is the future of HOSTGATOR customers??
Well let me make it quite clear that the future seems good for the Hostgator customers as now you will get a better service and support from the company.
But on the other hand, you can’t neglect the present , which strongly demands a backup right now. As now with the shift in the ownership, all the present data would be migrated to different location, so there is an uncertainty hovering over the website owners.
The best you can do is to have a regular backups on daily basis so as to minimise the risk of any uncertainty.
Rest be assured that the changes are positive so you don’t need to worry, just stay focused and carry on with your regular work.
