Hostgator Review – Poor Performance

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth
I’ve been a customer of HostGator for about 6 or 7 years and I’ve always loved them, but as we all know in the technology industry that can all change in the blink of an eye.

For about a year now I’ve been complaining about their slow servers. Their response was always to blame me or ignore it. It is my understanding they were bought up by EIG about a year ago and that would coincide with the beginning of my bad experience!

Recently they migrated us away from the SoftLayer Data Center and our websites were down for 2 days! How unprofessional so I decided to post my review here.

Here is a 5 month monitoring report of their service! As you can see their PING time went consistently up which tells me that they were over selling their servers.

We decided yesterday that we were going to move to another server and after less than 12 hours our PING times improved dramatically! And the funny part is the new host is still in EXACT same SoftLayer Data center!

Judge for yourself!
