    Is anyone else regular having their sites go down regularly at hostgator?

    Like I have several accounts with them and today all of the sites on all of the accounts are down. Its been a few hours too.

    Getting real tired of it.

    I am even trying to call both of their customer support numbers and it is not even ringing.

    Anyone else know how to get in touch with them another way for immediate response?

    Even their online chat is down.

    We moved everything off Hostgator to Cheapnames and a couple of others after the last lights out in October.

    Checked on the one client site that is on hostgator because they insisted on staying - yup it's down, down, down.

    Sucks to have a bad host.
    I came across this as one of the services I use is hosted by hostgator.
    Came her to post and was beaten to it.

    All the Companies are owned by the same person. I think anyway.

    They are all probably in the same datacenter, hence why multiple Companies having problems. :p


    I have also used hostwinds in the past and it is no comparison to hostgator. It's garbage. I lost a ton of website data with hostwinds in the past and can never forgive them for that. At least I know it's safe on hostgator, they barely ever have downtime.

    They look like complete amateurs with all their down times...I think these days even some unknown host provider is more reliable than hostgator is...
