Host Gator Enhances Disaster Recovery

Host Gator Enhances Disaster Recovery

November 28, 2005 -- Web hosting provider Host Gator ( announced last Friday that it had enhanced its disaster recovery and redundancy plans in response to the increasing frequency of hurricanes in the Florida region.

The changes include additional connectivity for enhanced redundancy, relocation of customer service and administrative functions to facilities designed for hurricane protection, additional power generators and gas reserves and continued maintenance of off-site backup. Customer service staff will remain in place on a 24-hour basis during any future hurricanes, the company says.

"We're pleased to say that Host Gator made it through the recent hurricane season without any disruptions to our customers' uptime," says Brent Oxley, president of Host Gator. "The dedication of our staff members to our clients was impressive to say the least during Hurricane Wilma. One of our employees narrowly avoided having his car crushed by a tree, while another employee had his truck door snapped off the hinges due to the high winds."

Host Gator is based in Boca Raton, Florida and has data center operations in Texas.
