Dallas, Texas and Boca Raton, Florida – (via THE
HOSTING NEWS) – August 12, 2005 – In 2002, Brent Oxley was a 19 year-old
college student working with high-traffic web sites when he became frustrated
with the hosting companies who provided unstable service, poor support and scams
that ripped off inexperienced customers. He started Hostgator to fill the void
in the marketplace and provide the better hosting environment for which fellow
webmasters were searching. Today, Hostgator is a larger and more respected web
host, growing from just under 100 customers to over 10,000 in three years.
Supported by The Planet’s Tier One datacenter on which Hostgator has come to
rely on for safe, secure and stable service since its inception, Hostgator continues
to experience tremendous growth. This summer, Hostgator purchased an additional
620 servers from The Planet, which now holds over 850 servers on which Hostgator
runs its successful business.
Brent Oxley, President and Founder of Hostgator, explains the synergy, ”The
choice to utilize The Planet as our exclusive server and connectivity provider
was an easy decision. The Planet is known as an industry leader. They go the
extra mile to ensure 100 percent customer satisfaction and we’ve never been
disappointed. The Planet has no equal. Their professionalism and commitment
to safety, security, and customer satisfaction mirrors our own philosophy, and
it is for these reasons we cannot imagine working with anyone else.”
Oxley began his business with a resolve to keep customer service at the heart
of Hostgator. Soon after he founded the company in his dorm room, Hostgator
grew so quickly that Oxley made the decision to leave school and concentrate
on his business full time. Armed with the right tools and partners, such as
The Planet, Hostgator enjoys an impeccable reputation and currently receives
over 1,000 new sign-ups per month.
Hostgator serves a critical role in the marketplace, offering more management
on dedicated servers with a focus on reseller hosting for people interested
in starting a web hosting business, but have no idea how to begin.
Julia Estes, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at The Planet added, ”Brent
Oxley is a fantastic partner. It is truly great when companies come together
that are so fully aligned by vision. Hostgator stakes everything on its reputation
of customer service, as does The Planet. We’re proud to support Hostgator, providing
great service and solutions that enable it to offer superior solutions to its
customers. Everyone wins and there are a lot of satisfied and successful customers.”
