    No problems with Hostgator for me, and unfortunately I've been working quite constantly all day. So, if my stuff would have went down for more than a few minutes at a time, I probably would have known.

    As a matter of fact it's time for bed. 12 hours of trying to figure new crap out makes you tired...

    This stuff is so easy even a cave man can do it... Except this cave man half the time.

    I have problem with hostgator too. Currently, all sites are down due to "server maintenance" and "will be back in few hours".
    WTF

    Surprisingly my hg is fine. I have noticed for about an hour each night for about the past 4-5 nights it would be down. I contacted support and they said they where having issues with the server my stuff was hosted on. Atleast they told me what was going on and they where already working to fix it.

    Facing more and more issues as well with HG the past weeks. Though I´m on a shared package and they always claim that some users abuse their accounts...

    So far I at least got a month for free but the past two complaints more or less got ignored with the response "well, get a vps, we can´t help you" ...

    last year i did not have any issues with HG at all as far as i remember, this year i already had several issues and getting annoyed by their ignorance .

    As far i can see it has nothing to do with what kind of package you have as i have 2 shared , 1 vps and 2 dedi with them and for the 1st time in years i am looking around for a different host as currrently i am just not happy with the way how they react when i contact them with today's problems.

    You guys should check out Hostwinds, we manually update our servers with new cpanel updates. This ensures that all the other hosting companies out there get to break and then all the bugs get fixed, and then we upgrade it safely using Stable builds. The end result is our client's websites aren't down and they are still making money. Check out Hostwinds and if you guys have any problems or questions just shoot me a PM

    we are having a little special of our own, use the coupon code HGSUCKS and get 99% off your first month ;)

    i still love hostgator compared to other hosting cos support is fantastic. it just that my server was down like 3x now and it not that long tho. i hope they could fix it cos i really dont want to change hosting as much as possible
