Are EIG Still That Bad?

People always said that EIG is rubbish, EIG is a huge company that owns most hosting services/companies, meaning it's countless. No idea how many though. Lists like Hostgator, OVH, and Bluehost. I agree that since they have taken over those companies that they made them worse and gone downhill so badly that they lost their people. But, yes there is a but, Hostgator still wins the battle and they still have the good reviews and good support. So are EIG still facing rubbish comments from the public?

I say it depends on the management of those hosting sites and how they work and who their workers are. I have met and talked to live support who are very helpful and nice. Shame that most hosting site under EIG does not offer great prices and there is no competition.

No aside from OVH the hosts you just listed are quite expensive. I don't host with any EIG companies and probably won't ever unless I find a good deal on something like OVH. Thought BBB companies (better business bureau) actually are a different story. My host actually is credited by BBB so if I ever see that logo on a hosts website, I immediately tend to be drawn to them far more then if it wasn't there.

Host Gator has been around for a long time though and I can see why a lot of people like using them.

I don't see any reason why any of them are bad. Well, exactly how are they bad? What's does the competition do that's better?

I don't think they're bad myself just much more expensive. Bigger companies do tend to be more professional. It's why most people like them. But I'd rather host with a smaller one as long as they are pros.

Yeah, this seems to be a case of, "Well, what did you expect?".

Yeah, my only issue with them is the prices they charge as well, otherwise they seem to be quite useful and if I had the money for their hosting, I'd for sure jump at the opportunity.
