    Guys my hostgator got banned and the reason was spamming. I didn't do any spamming, I know who did exactly (one guy I hired to set my site up - i am a noob in creating sites and hosting it).

    I sent hostgator an email about this matter and told them I got hacked and they can check the logs. What else can I do guys?

    Call them up.

    And tell them you pay to use their services and they
    cant do what they feel like. Tell them you will goto
    their competitor and create like 100 blogs about their
    worst service and post comments etc. Like Nevarc's
    post.Search it.

    Give them a call and tell them. You do business with them
    and they cant fuck like a tyranny.If you have backup files
    of your sites then you are somewhat safe.

    good luck.

    I will talk politely with them first but if they keep being a pain I will do exactly that. I don't have backups but only had around 2-3 not so important sites :)

    You sure it's not just down? The database on the server I'm hosted on went down today, my site that is hosted there has been down all day.

    another good reason to drop these clowns. dunno why so many people say that gator is a
    good choice. last year they banned my account for spamming because i had a beamer in my
    root folder and they didn't know what it was. i'm already looking for a better host. :mad2:

    i'd love to get a vps, but nobody offers enough space at a good price. :(

    Any chances to get it back? I also heard good things about hostgator before this. :(

    luckily i was able to get everything back, but only after i spent 20 minutes on the
    phone with customer service explaining what all of my software did. after that, i had to
    wait over 30 minutes for customer service to relay my message to security so they'd
    reactivate my account.

    if you have something in your account that gator doesn't understand, you automatically get a suspension until you *prove* that you're innocent. seems at hg you're presumed
    guilty if they don't like the name of your files!

    also, five days ago i got locked out of my account for an hour after their c-panel overwrote
    my htaccess file which caused all of my web pages to return 404 errors (forbidden). that little hitch was resolved after a mere 15 minutes on hold.

    be aware that hg snoops thru your files so if you're doing any blackhat marketing this is not
    a company to use, since they'll literally suspend your account on a whim.

    i realize that no company is perfect, but i feel the problems i'm having with gator are too
    much. i've already backed up my important files just in case something goes wrong.
