Plenty of times I've had the experience. Rarely does anybody publish anything.
Do as they ask and send the DMCA by mail/fax to their designated DMCA agent. Host Gator is in compliance with the law.
If they have Adsense on the site or utilize any type Google program send a DMCA to Google first. If the site appears in Google or any other search engine send it to them also.
