    Neither will even begin to load. Does this mean hosting is down?

    Probably just a temporary routing issue.
    A server somewhere between you and their server

    ( you hope through probably 10+ networks to access them,
    so when one of them has an issue, until it is either resolved
    or the trafic re-routes for the path of least resistance,
    (another path to the server is created in a few hours, usually,
    if one server goes offline ... if there is a JAM-UP/overload
    on the traffic for whatever reason, that usually self-resolves)

    DO THIS:
    Click START
    Click: Run
    TYPE: cmd
    HIT: Enter key

    TYPE: tracert www.hostgator.com ( note the space between tracert and the address )

    HIT: Enter Key

    This is a Trace Route command & action and will show you the servers through which you HOP top see you page & hostgator

    When you have an issue and you see REQUEST TIMED OUT you know where the problem LIKELY is

    EXAMPLE ( first steps are EDITED to prevent my location from being revealed )

    C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>tracert www.hostgator.com
    Tracing route to hostgator.com [74.53.87.195]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:
    1 EDITED
    2 EDITED
    3 EDITED
    4 EDITED
    5 EDITED
    6 EDITED
    7 EDITED
    9 96 ms 80 ms 79 ms te3-5.dsr01.dllstx3.theplanet.com [70.87.253.86]
    10 * * * Request timed out.
    11 84 ms 82 ms 113 ms te1-1.car05.dllstx6.theplanet.com [70.87.254.170
    ]
    12 72 ms 109 ms 83 ms d00t.hostgator.com [74.53.87.195]
    Trace complete.

    Oh so one of the servers in the cluster had a problem and all the data in the server moved to another one?

    Well take the "Oh" and "?" off my question and you have a reason for the problem :)

    yea 75% of the servers backends are down at the planet, its a pretty big problem. From what I know they are scrambling to try and fix it ASAP. I actually lost several hundred dollars today due to not being able to access cpanel, and do something i needed to.

    (Hostgator's data center is at the planet by the way) All you guys with HG are lucky, they just switch u to a diff shared server. My dedi is not through something like that, and I dont have the option of just be transfered over and everything fixed.

    Ha and this happens like 2 days after I switch all my stuff off of hostgator.
