why very active sites should avoid hostgator

I like hostgator for its low prices.

But what i noticed they have severe restriction which causes a lot of problem to heavy users


1) constant error 500 when the site uses up all their preset processes.

2) Automatic site block without warning

3) This is the worst . They change the file permission from 755 to 644 . For files which have heavy usage without warning

4) Impossible to migrate out of hostgator if you mysql db is more than 50 mb and you try to export the db it will truncate after 20 mb max. There is not way to save your db  without raising a ticket and asking them to save the db into your folder.
