  1. One more thing that I based my decision to select Hostgator’s web hosting service is because they power all their data centers with renewable energy.

  2. With havin so much written content do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of
    exclusive content I’ve either authored myself
    or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
    without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being
    stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
