WOW HostGator Sold for $225 Million - Not bad!

Hm...does anyone has hosting from that EIG company, that can provide us with some info on their positives and negatives?

just take a look at the page of EIG at wikipedia and you will realise one or the other major hosting you're using is provided by EIG now.
 
I don't think it's fair value of $225 millions for Hostgator strange that they accepted?
Really? Because I'm guessing they had 5+ financial advisors who have a university degree and spent their whole life working in this field. But I guess you "don't think it's fair".
 
It's funny how clueless people really are, and yet try and pretend they are some kind of M&A expert and know how to accurately value companies. I'm glad we have people like meathead around to put sense back into threads like these.
 
Maybe next weeks/days they will make new changes and will notice all new customers but I don't think so.
 
Dude, the thread was made in 2012.

Seems you are one of the few in the know. :)

It's kind of good this thread got bumped though. We all can take a close look at how EIG operates, which includes moving clients to the cheapest datacenters and stuffing more accounts on each server. DNS errors, laggy ass load times and other shit that costs us money is EIG's claim to fame. Besides HostGator, this company also owns BlueHost and HostMonster. And EIG fucked up each one of these companies too. Avoid them like the plague if you want good uptime and support from your hosting provider.
 
I believe it is time to start thinking about migrating your sites off Hostgator. I have started to see a drop off in performance on the Hostgator platform. I have moved 2 client sites in the last month because of issues with their servers. I will not be recommending them any longer.
