No confirmations have been made on the financial terms.Brent Oxley recently confirmed the acquisition to HostGator employees in an email: “I have indeed agreed to sell HostGator to Endurance International Group…We are currently under contract and if everything goes according to plan, Endurance International Group will be purchasing HostGator in the next 3-4 weeks.”
Oxley reassured HostGator employees that the sale would not impact their jobs and expects that EIG will continue to grow the Web hosting business as they have after acquiring BlueHost in 2011.
In fact, notes Oxley, “I’ve heard that Endurance International Group with HostGator will be even bigger than GoDaddy.”
