    My site keeps going down basically every 5 minutes for two days already. I mean all my sites, not just one. I mean this is really getting annoying, since just a several days ago there was that crap with their servers down for several hours, now again their bullshit just keeps getting even worse...

    Never had that problem, just move on to another hosting if you are unsatisfied and come back to comment on your experiences.

    (assuming this happens on a shared server it could be some mofo spiking things up)

    You probably didn't noticed it, that's all. I have a monitoring tool and once my site goes offline i can see when exactly that happened and for a few days i've got more than 50 downs... i mean this is a crap...

    I am with hostgator, and very happy about everything.
    What I suggest you to do is to not monitor too much of everything... will just make you pissed off too often.
    Every site goes down from time to time and also monitoring tools are not 100% correct - please, remember that.

    Sites like host-tracker or pingdom are always right and give right uptime results

    As they monitor from multiple source

    Try not putting too many websites onto 1 shared hosting plan.

    i just have one site on a $9 pack and even that small 10 page site loads like i am using a 0.01kb/second internet.

    migrate to namecheap , they are good + their online support is good.

    I actually just got rid of Hostgator last week. Try a new hosting co.

    P.S. Did you try contacting Hostgator to ask what was up?

    check isitdownrightnow dot com to make sure it is down everywhere before you contact them. When I had this problem with them they kept telling me the site was up on their end. When I checked isitdown I found out HG was right most of the time. However, once I was right and I was able to quickly prove it. Got it fixed right away.

    I have used Hostgator for more than 5 years now, I have tried other hosting companies as well but I still view them as the best blue host isn't bad as well
