For almost a decade, HostGator was my faithful hosting service. Since my initial setup, I witnessed it going up and down, especially in the past 3 years. I tweaked it a lot and used various custom plugins and code to squeeze every last drop of speed from it. But then HostGator stopped updating their PHP/MySQL engines. Support services became slower and slower and more users were crammed daily on their shared servers.
It was a good ride but everything stopped when they suspended my sites without any email reply for more than 4 days. So I moved on.
I will soon release my performance plugin as a premium plugin.
