    @HostGator Is hostgator down? I can’t access my website for hours !!

  • rishabhvanwani Rishabh Vanwani (@rishabhvanwani) reported

    For #WordPress & #AWS beginners, never rely on plugins for your backups/restores. All In One WP Migration promises support, but at the end of the day - some popular hosting providers such as @HostGator are not supported, and the plugin won't work. Extremely bad exp 🥲

  • MDSpalding Michelle Spalding (@MDSpalding) reported

    @HGSupport The issue was NEVER RESOLVED - EACH CALL AND CHAT MADE IT WORSE BY YOUR SUPPORT TEAM - no new ticked needed.

  • ChurchillId Churchill Idika (@ChurchillId) reported

    @HostGator have you forgotten me finally? What's going on Guy, this email issues are affecting my business. Mails are still failing

  • MDSpalding Michelle Spalding (@MDSpalding) reported

    @HGSupport Waste of time trying to receive help - now looking for new website company after more than 12 years as a customer this is the final straw.

  • USandGlobalNews US and Global News (@USandGlobalNews) reported

    @DawnYoungArt @HostGator Server is undergoing maintanance, the support person tells me, adding it will be fixed asap

  • rooturaj Rooturaj Pattanaik (@rooturaj) reported

    @HGSupport @HostGator Why is your live chat not working? The chat window becomes inactive after a few minutes. Pathetic support.

  • USandGlobalNews US and Global News (@USandGlobalNews) reported

    @DawnYoungArt @HostGator Ours has been down for over an hour now. Am currently during live help chat

  • hereforthecry O (@hereforthecry) reported

    @HGSupport any reason why CPanel isn’t loading? Issue on your end?

  • ScottSandry Sandry (@ScottSandry) reported

    .@HostGator whatever new mailing setup you implemented is terrible. I can't email clients properly anymore and it sucks. I keep getting Rejected messages from spamhaus or Cloudmark. I changed nothing on my end but now I can't operate with clients w an email I've had for 10+ yrs

  • MDSpalding Michelle Spalding (@MDSpalding) reported

    @HGSupport My assistant worked with another support rep who undid what was done by HG earlier today and the issue is resolved. Sadly it took her and me more than 4 hours total on support with your co. Gone are the days when the first person we spoke with was excited to help and knowledgable

  • davickan Stoical (@davickan) reported

    @HostGator Can you imagine I contacted Hostgator on this issue and they are charging me $25 to restore sending and receiving emails? Isn't this Hostgators failure?

  • Emilier20833018 Emilier (@Emilier20833018) reported

    @HGSupport @YBlaineM It was frustrating when I lost access to my account and I lost hope in getting it back until a colleague directed me to #cyberking_consultant0 ON Instagram who recovered my account back. You can reach out to them for help.

  • Emilie77013796 Emilie (@Emilie77013796) reported

    @HGSupport @YBlaineM Sorry about that dear, had similar issue few weeks ago couldn't get help from ig support until a friend advice me to message #cyberking_consultant0 ON Instagram who helped me gain access back to my account without stress

  • iambhaskarwagh Bhaskar Wagh (@iambhaskarwagh) reported

    Hi @HostGator I just want to say, please take your time. No rush to fix your servers. Really it’s ok. We can wait. But, please fix your servers.

  • Chance_CEO Chance (@Chance_CEO) reported

    @_negative0 @HostGator Just because you don’t understand what a recurring subscription is, that doesn’t mean you call a company a scam and **** like that. Why not before you rant on Twitter, reach out to them asking them if they will refund you, idiot.

  • WrittenMirror 𝕁𝕒𝕪 𝕄𝕦𝕝𝕝𝕚𝕟𝕘𝕤 (@WrittenMirror) reported

    @HostGator You still have this issue and you're trying to charge customers for resolving it is disgusting

  • MDSpalding Michelle Spalding (@MDSpalding) reported

    @HGSupport @HostGator IT WORKED FINE until we called support on an unrelated issue. THIS IS ON YOUR support dept.

  • HunterInCrypto Hunter Patterson (@HunterInCrypto) reported

    @HostGator Two weeks later, still not resolved. Support not answering. Chat not loading. CPanel not accessible. Time to move on.

  • HGSupport HostGator Support (@HGSupport) reported

    @_negative0 Hey there, just letting you know HostGator is a subscription service. So similar to other subscriptions (netflix etc) if you're card is on file your subscription and charges continue. If you need assistance removing auto-pay just send us a DM and we'll be happy to help!

  • MDSpalding Michelle Spalding (@MDSpalding) reported

    @HGSupport White screen when I attempt to open the site and it never loads

  • MDSpalding Michelle Spalding (@MDSpalding) reported

    @HGSupport WRONG - that ticket was a follow-up to my 90-minute call in which your support team said it was being escalated as they couldn't fix it. Would you like me to send you a transcript of the call? I have it

  • tdventura_ The Digital Ventura (@tdventura_) reported

    @HGSupport back here support in India does not know how to help with restoring an add-on domain with full backup on local. What do I do? @HostGator @hostgatorindia website is down since a month now

  • MDSpalding Michelle Spalding (@MDSpalding) reported

    Bad to worse, that's how our website went with @HostGator and @HGSupport today - 1st we had an issue with pages loading, then couldn't access it via our normal login and now after hours of dealing with them on phone and chat- it's got a fatal error - now asking us what to do

  • tdventura_ The Digital Ventura (@tdventura_) reported

    @HGSupport tried explaining the customer care on call multiple times. No solution.

  • SLYTECH_ORG Sly Uduosa (@SLYTECH_ORG) reported

    @HGSupport @HGSupport why has my website been down for a while now?

  • JaseHmm Jase (@JaseHmm) reported

    @HGSupport @SLYTECH_ORG my site has been down for hours and I cannot even access the cpanel

  • YBlaineM Blaine Miyakawa (@YBlaineM) reported

    @HostGator There is no reason for a problem like this to take hours to fix, let alone days

  • spookyboorhodes Spooky Boo Rhodes (@spookyboorhodes) reported

    Yesterday while trying to get support from @Hostgator on a live chat because my website was down again, the guy said he was going to escalate it and he'll be back a few minutes. He never got back. My website was down for 10 hours until I redirected the domain to another website.
