So I featured Josiah Wallingford’s site on the air today BrinkOfFreedom.net and now HostGator has shut it down for undue load on their server. Let me state these guys shut Joe’s site down with NO NOTIFICATION and were unwilling to re-enable it even when he disabled a script they claimed was the problem.
Again this is an account they claim is UNLIMITED. When they did it to me I was pulling down like 3.5 terabytes a month, I understood the issue, they worked with me and I moved to a new host. I was told they had put new policies in place and it would not happen to others I recommend if traffic was reasonable.
Archer and Mr. Bill who admin the TSP server are helping Joe move his site right now to my server as a temporary solution.
Over the years I have sent hundreds of customers to HostGator. They did this with no notice what-so-ever on an account that they market as unlimited.
I am looking for a new host to send business to, one that doesn’t screw over customers at mid day over a frankly minor spike in traffic. HostGator has done this type of thing one too many times, they have lost a strong supporter in me for good.
So if you KNOW don’t know of or heard of but KNOW for a fact of a good host that doesn’t screw over their customers by over subscribing and not being able to handle a few thousand visitors an hour during a spike. let me know and I will be happy to send business their way and I will be happy to contact EVERY SINGLE ONE of my hostgator customers and suggest they move to a place they will be treated better.
