    I am using VPS account.
    My WHM panel, VZ panel, websites etc all are down.

    I tried their live chat system but it won't load either.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    EDIT: It's official that they are down. If your website is down too, don't panic.

    P.S: This is like 3-4 times in last 30 days for me :(

    P.S.S : Now, I am started to lose money :( (Anyone else ? )

    I checked my sites this morning and they are down as well. I wonder if it has to do with the DNS Servers

    Why don't you just wait and see what they say rather than jumping to silly conclusions..

    Not all servers are affected - mine were down and now are up but running really slow. I checked some friends who I know use HG for some sites and some (apparently) never went down.

    Yeah, that was my thought. It must be certain servers.

    While we're on the topic, did anyone else get the data "migration" notice a week or so back?

    19 minutes ago from twitter hostgator Services are now returning to normal. Our sincere apologies to all who were affected by that brief network outage.
