Hostgator has just announced increase in hosting plan pricing. Most of the plans have been hiked by almost 20%. Below is a quick comparison of old pricing and new pricing.
Below is an email send by Hostgator to its affiliate partners regarding the price change.
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 and ultimately make conversion easy which benefits YOU, our affiliate partner.
Hostgator blames increasing cost as a reason for price hike. But don’t understand why all on a sudden. Normally companies give at least 30 days notice to customer before a price hike. This 0 hour notice is not adequate.
