EIG has just added Hostgator to its list of Web Hosting Companies Hosting Power-House “HostGator” with a deal around $225 Million. in plain terms “The major hosting giant HostGator has been sold”
According to the sources HostGator has been sold to EIG [Endurance International Group]. The deal is already signed however there is no specific reason mentioned for it. This is a major occurrence in the web hosting industry. EIG is a group of web hosting companies and over a period of time they have acquired many prominent web hosting companies. Among the arena of web hosting companies, EIG also has HostGator now.
People Talk: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1168297
For a list of all Web Hosting Companies own by EIG, Check http://forums.eukhost.com/showthread.php?t=17120&p=101246, many of these hosting companies include ipage, powweb, and fatcow.
Are you a Customer of Hostgator like me? Then you are probably wondering how this will affect you? Well on the surface it shouldnt if EIG keeps the standard from HostGator but History may not be on their side due to other messy acquisitions. I simply say start some major backup and get a portfolio ready for shipment, Why?
This kind of acquistion will results in many of the Following
- Prices Review which you may not like anymore
- Service Change / Offerings (Downgrade or Upgrade) which may not favour you
- Service Stability (especially if EIG decides to ship the Hostgator to its own Data Center, then Downtime here i come)
So Just saying, Be Happy and be sad at the same time…Question is ever thought Hostgator could be bought over?

Facebook announced last week a partnership with cloud application platform Heroku, a cloud application acquired by Salesforce last December, to help developers start working on their apps sooner without having to worry about finding a host. It will allow app developers to instantly create sample applications in their choice of language environment for free, rather than having to set up and pay for their own hosting right from the beginning. They’ll then be able to test common app functionalities and edit code to create a full-fledged custom Facebook app. Developers only need to pay if their app grows to a “large amount of traffic or users”
