HostGator Success Story

by dt on September 11th, 2009

Very interesting blog post on HostGator, written by Brent Oxley (CEO), about their company history:

Few quotes:

When HostGator had just started, I hated resellers because they required a large amount of relatively technical service.  [..] There was very few employees at first and nothing but empty space. Many people that I met had no idea what web hosting was and were convinced that I was a drug dealer. They believed this because I was so young, successful, and living in an empty building with a bunch of young adults in what resembled a frat house.
