    I am using hostgator for more than 3 years. All my sites are live. Haven't faced any problem so far.

    well they are live, but they take 2 min to load.... useless.... any traffic I am buying is going to waste.

    For all those saying "its not down for me", it has been down pretty much all morning.
    They keep getting more and more pathetic.

    I was on hold on the phone for 40 minutes, no joke. Should be called Holdgator...

    Im definitely shifting over soon. I have always been a fan of Hostgator, but the reality is that they are down quite often and if you run anything decent, it will seriously impact your business.

    I still don't get it why so many people use shitty hosts, where the load times are over 30 secs,while you could get far better service for 5

    Did not get the point of that sentence. We should not admit it wasn't down for us even though that's the case?

    I still have a few sites on Hostgator but have moved all my important sites over to A2 Hosting at the beginning of the year. Was burned one too many times by unreliable Host Gator.
