    Hello, 2-3 days ago I had some problems with my hosting, it was down for a long time and the earnings was low and I can understand that because there was a reason behind it. Yesterday hosting was up but the earnings are a lot lower than usual and finally today I tried one of the best hosting with new domain but same landing page but the earnings for today are still a lot lower than usual. I am so confused and I don't know what to do. Any help? :(

    could be anything. maybe your new domain name isn't as appealing as the last one.

    The domain is same just different extension. That is not the problem for sure. I don't know what info to provide since I have no idea what the problem might be.

    Everything is exactly the same, except domain. Domain would probably be the cause. Maybe your new host isn't that fast or dns hasn't propagated correctly. Could just be a slow day. How consistent were your earnings prior to your host going down?

    They were consistant. The thing I notice is that when I click on my site it says page is not avaiable both on new and the old hosting, after I refresh few times it works.

    it's hard to answer your question because there is alot of reasons why it happens and we don't have access on anything to help you figure out.
    - what host do you use ?
    - do you have google analytics? did the traffic decreased there? (if yes, then i think it's your traffic source)
    - if the traffic is still the same on google analytics, but the network clicks decreased. maybe because you changed your landing page or something. or because the host is slow.

    we can't help you with this because you did'nt show anything.
    we can't give you a correct answer, we are just guesing answer that may / may not help you.
    best is you try finding the issue yourself because you have access on the host.

    that's probably why. if visitors see a page not available, they aren't going to refresh until it works.
    try using tool like this to make sure everyone is getting the same dns.
    Code:
    https://www.whatsmydns.net/
    it could be one reason, like @xbryan says could be a hundred things we are guessing in the dark.
    doing a speed test would be a good idea. slow sites make visitors leave faster than anything
    run this tool and start optimizing

    can you make a screenshot about the error that it's showing?
    did you try going to the hostgator live chat and asking the support there?

    check your site with geopeeker.com
    go to hostgator live chat, explain the issue, ask for support.
    they are expert on this, so they should be able to fix it for you easily.

    Nikola what are you talking about man? How can anyone answer this question without more information dude? How are you monetizing the website for starters? From what I can gather it sounds like you have traffic coming from the same source, your website was down for a couple days though and now its back up but your earnings were still low...then it sounds like you switched hosting companies.

    If I were a guessing man I would say that you lost a bunch of traffic because it looked like your site was closed. Possibly it maybe even fell off ranking in google, I'm not an SEO guy (thank God) though so I couldn't tell you for sure on that.

    Honestly though man, how much traffic were you getting before hosting issue?

    How much traffic were you getting after hosting issue?

    How is the damn website monetized? lol

    Help us help you lol

    Right, we are not magicians. We can't just guess out of the blues what is wrong with your site. We don't know the source, the monetisation, the specs. We do not know anything.

    Are we talking about a decrease from $2 to $1 per day ? or from $300 to $299? from $200 to $10 ?

    My friend is using hostgator 2 years and he didn't go through any problems with them, he is hosting more than 150 domains and everything works perfect for him
