update on hosting
In my research I discovered that Bluehost and Hostgator (along with 3 or 4 others) are all now owned by the same parent company. Accordingly the reviews and commentary regarding both hosting services has seen an upsurge in very negative comments escalating over the past 6 months. Any comments on this?
Also it is not specifically listed that Hostgator allows for multimedia. Could this be confirmed please?
Yes, fairly recently, Hostgator and Bluehost were acquired by EIG.
To be honest, I haven't seen any change in service since Hostgator was acquired. I've always had great support with them and been completely satisfied with their service.
When you say, "Hostgator doesn't allow for multimedia", what do you mean exactly? Do you mean that they don't allow you to host videos on your server?
Thanks for your questions, and please let me know if you have any others.
