    I have two separate ones for my business. One is up and one is down. The important one is down of course. Losing potential leads and sales every minute that it's down.

    One of my business is running with Hostgator and I start to hate them. For me, it all started one week ago, tons of 500 internal errors, no loading, lazy l;oading, etc. Hate them!

    Never used HostGator. Why not use a professional web serving service if you claim to be using so much money?

    mid to high $xxx. Can only guess based on averages. I will know more tomorrow and when the downtime stops. It was not down all day. Looks like it was 5 hours off and on

    I heard bluehost bought hostgator and they are trying to move hostgator servers to bluehost.
    Hostgator is becoming shit... it was fine before, now it's a couple of months it gives lots of problem.

    I'm actively looking for a new host and I've already agreed for a refund of the last 6 months Ive paid with hostgator. You should ask for a refund too. I hope they fail and they servers explode with people inside...

    * In their terms they say something like that if they are down for more than 0.01% of the time or so, you can ask for a refund
