HostGator, an internet hosting provider to small and medium-sized businesses, is radically increasing it hosting charges.
The changes come after HostGator was acquired earlier this year. The boost in prices will push many businesses out of their current internet presences.
“On Tuesday, August 25th starting at 7:30am CST, HostGator will be increasing pricing on all our hosting packages and plans. This decision is a reflection of the changing hosting industry and increase costs as a result.
We will provide you with more details as needed but please look to our website for new pricing if you are listing any plan prices. Percentage off offers will reflect updated pricing at this time as well.
You may have noticed that HostGator has been optimizing the site over this past year with a number of A/B tests for both UI experience and increased conversion. You may notice some of these changes as you come back to visit the site from time to time but these changes are all in an effort to make the customer experience better…”
Many businesses have been turning elsewhere for hosting.
Due to this reason, EvenCool.com is considering moving the hosting service to a Digital Ocean virtual private service, which is cheaper and faster. They have great tools, and can adjust to your traffic and budget. We have experienced with another online projects and I guess there is no better choice.
“The pricing is good, but their service and support is awesome. The fix things in half the time that HostGator does.” You can learn sign-up Digital Ocean here.
