    Yes and their already shitty support had gotten worse too (slower).

    I gave up hostgator years ago just around the time EIG tookover.

    HG has got a lot worse when it was acquired by EIG, never used them but have seen a lot of posts about them.

    Just go with HostWinds guys or any other hosting offered here, you can't go wrong. I just couldn't be more disappointed by HG...

    but shared hosting probably is getting slow

    For all Hostgator Users: Please keep taking backups for your website otherwise you will end-up loosing all site data one day without any reason.

    Ever since hostagor got bought, their service has gradually declined. Moving datacenters, frequent outages, unresponsive support etc.
    They used to be pretty cool though.

    Oh, and should you decide to close your account, they might offer you a free month of service. I didn't budge and they bumped it up to 3 months for free.

    For me the savings weren't worth it anyways.
