    This is fucking annoying. All of my dedicated boxes and shared accounts are down. Every damn one. There is a 30 min wait time on chat and their phone support seems to be similar. Losing a fuck load of traffic and money atm. Is anyone else having the same problem?

    All of my shared hosting plans are down. Been in line for customer support for 68 minutes now.. I was JUST about to upgrade to a dedicated hosting plan but I am now having second thoughts. Can anybody recommend a good dedicated hosting provider? I was looking into Godaddy

    Says they have been down for 3 hours. My main email domain is there and I cannot send/receive plus i have 5 sites there. Will transfer everything when they come back online. Godaddy hosting is better than this crap.

    I have more than 200 sites down, email servers are crippled. Their customer service numbers arent even working, nor is their online chat.

    They've been such a pile of shit for me. Over the last 3 months I've had less than 99.9% uptime so I'll be contacting them about a full refund.
