Domains, Domains, Domains
Everyone is interested in an update on our domain registrar launch. We hear you, loud and clear!
While we can’t nail down an exact launch date quite yet, this is a top priority and it’s something that we are working on every day.
We have greatly expanded our development team (over 10 members now) to launch this and other HostGator products as quickly as possible.
So without making any false promises, we can tell you it is coming “soon.”
HostGator Biggest Loser:
HostGator held its own biggest loser 2.0 recently. It was a great success with many of our employees losing lots of weight! There was also a friendly competition between the Austin and Houston offices for who would lose the largest percentage of body weight.
Austin won! Tim B. was the overall winner, losing nearly 14% of his body weight! Great work.
With the win, the Austin office was treated to a great “Grill Fest” on July 1st.
We were busy in June
We thought we handled a lot of support inquiries in May (roughly 520,000), however we blew that away in June.
And 252,693 Tickets
Over 551,400 chats, calls and tickets were answered in June.
