    So I just noticed a few of my hostgator hosted sites arent loaded, so i go to check my cpanel:

    doesnt load.

    I go to create a support ticket:

    doesnt load.

    i try hostgator.com

    doesnt load.

    Tried from several locations and still won't work.

    This isn't good news :worm3:

    Crazy that they would not have a bunch of different options to stay online.

    I am not Multi Million company, but even I am creating independent DNS...
    I would never suspect that quality hosting company will do something like that.
    Its a good day for independent companies :D

    BTW Somebody will loose job for that :p


    Edit: Up again...

    This hosting company seems to be very popular among internet marketing people on this board judging by the number of replies

    I seriously don't understand why all of you people keep insisting on Hostgator? They oversell and they're a piece of crap... get a real host...

    I got hit by the Hostgator downtime as well and am not very happy about it. What is another host that people recommend for quality SEO hosting where I can buy 10 IPs fairly cheap? I am on a bit of budget which is why I was with Hostgator but I am fed up with their substandard practices and cutting corners.
