    Hey

    I thought the servers were down earlier, but my wordpress must be hacked.

    When i type in the main domain name i get this landing page... hack1.jpg

    A pop up then come up showing taking me here.... hack2.jpg
    I deleted wordpress, checked the site and i was at hostgator landing page.

    I installed wordpress again and returned to the above landing page.

    Any ideas? This was all fine 18 hours ago.

    Like I said in your first thread, contact Hostgator straight away and they will fix it.
