Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • sunsfever83 Donal Carroll (@sunsfever83) reported

    @hokororo_j @HostGator @GoDaddy @HGSupport @HostGator is suppose to compensate if the reason your website is down is because of them.

  • hokororo_j El Patron (@hokororo_j) reported

    @The_Afsar @HGSupport @HostGator Having the same issues as well.

  • hokororo_j El Patron (@hokororo_j) reported

    @sunsfever83 @HostGator @GoDaddy @HGSupport I am having issues with my server too and the Helpchat won't load. This is unheard of and I don't know what they thinking of because clients only expect their websites to be up and running 24/7. I am wondering if they will compensate us for this madness.

  • sunsfever83 Donal Carroll (@sunsfever83) reported

    An update on an earlier post. After the problems with @HostGator customer service, someone contacted here and they actually resolved the issue. Still took 5 agents so cs is a little shaky imo, but it is fixed. As far as @GoDaddy , crickets. But thank you @HGSupport .

  • averagenerdboi nacho_average_nerd (@averagenerdboi) reported

    @sunsfever83 @HGSupport That’s a very richard thing to say, they clearly wanna help and make it right.

  • sunsfever83 Donal Carroll (@sunsfever83) reported

    Anyone looking for web hosting. Stay clear of @HostGator and @GoDaddy . I have spent 2 days now trying to transfer a domain. Each agent from both companies tell me something different every time. Issue isn't resolved, will get a new domain and host tomorrow. Word of caution.

  • FoxonTerry terry foxon (@FoxonTerry) reported

    @HGSupport I have DM’d you i hope you can provide a quick resolution as I can still cancel my account as i am within my 30 day period

  • debstgeorge Deb St. George (@debstgeorge) reported

    @PerksterS @HostGator I asked Hostgator to upgrade my site to php 7.2 but instead they put them at php 5.4 not only in the control panel but in all my .htaccess files. All my wordpress sites and joomla sites went down with errors as php 5.6 is required. Had to reset all sites back to 7.1 (no php 7.2)

  • lothrazar Sam 🇨🇦 (@lothrazar) reported

    Hey @HostGator just want to say your phone support is great, less than 10 minutes on hold and the person fixed the issue right away even on a saturday morning, perfect 5/7

  • RahulGaitonde Rahul Gaitonde (@RahulGaitonde) reported

    @HGSupport @hostgatorindia please do thanks your live chat customer support Chris S. for their help resolving my wordpress config problems. They were super-patient and competent. My chat tab crashed before I could thank them.

  • carterartist sean carter (id8tionist) (@carterartist) reported

    @HGSupport It keeps going down claiming I’m using resources. I’m not.

  • carterartist sean carter (id8tionist) (@carterartist) reported

    @HostGator yeah... I am getting sick of all these problems. I will probably have to find time to find a replacement.

  • manyvidswiki Manyvids.wiki Manyvids WILL GET U DOXED (@manyvidswiki) reported

    @HGSupport STILL waiting a reply as this terrorist post more crap on her sites!

  • CindyinTO Cindy Zimmer (@CindyinTO) reported

    @HGSupport I want them to fix it. Each time I've contacted Hostgator this week, I get the same answer that you're "working to further escalate this" but nothing has been fixed. Fix it!

  • vetvinney Drake iqinsark (@vetvinney) reported

    @HGSupport #NOTWORKING no it is not, i've been on the #phone #chats #website is still down #email is not working I have at least 5 reference numbers. #Wasteoflife @HostGator cant resolve anything. Cant even send email...... #sharedhosting #GoDaddy #fails #CustomerExperience

    ATTENTION warning fraud scam hosting criminal company @HostGator and Adam Farrar CEO is about to get a taste of his own medicine if he doesnt pull down Alexandra Melody Mayers criminal stalker hate site and all its copyrighten content! They are ignoring DMCA's!

  • dbock1989 DBock [TheBoxStreams] (@dbock1989) reported

    Since the day I had a problem with @HGSupport , I am seeing ENDLESS post about even more terrible than mine. If you guys have website and need REAL support, Actions instead of accusations, Get ahold of @skystracloud. These people are life savers. LIFE. SAVERS. #OutWithTheOld

  • durhamcub Martin Steel (@durhamcub) reported

    @HostGator morning All - as a uk national I’d love to know where you got my main email address from. As an @adobe customer who’s details got hacked I’m thinking you’ve bought a dodgy mailing list. Mainly cos I don’t give this email out for marketing purposes. Thanks Martin

  • chrsshww Chris Shaw (@chrsshww) reported

    LOL @Hostgator support told my gf the speed issues with her site were not on their side because "Well no one else has complained" and wouldnt look in further until she added optimization plugins. Showed her how to use #DNSdumpster to dump all A records and now I'm scared for them

  • LDMythos Mythos - Metrocop.net Returns 2020 (@LDMythos) reported

    UPDATE: I had been considering Bluehost for quite a while due to price/features balance but just found out it, HostGator and SiteLock (web security) are all owned by the same company and have had some really bad history ever since being acquired, like basically scamming clients.

  • djCodeRed_ Victor Mckenzie (@djCodeRed_) reported

    @hostgator @HGSupport your website is at a crawl pace... can't get connected to tech support

  • RahulWa73462575 Rahul Waghmare (@RahulWa73462575) reported

  • AffiliatesWatch The Affiliate Watch (@AffiliatesWatch) reported

    @queenfareeda You just got that affiliate paid. When your site goes down on hostgator, he won't give a damn, and you'll be stuck with the problem.

  • nyrmanny Manny Gongora 🇺🇸 (@nyrmanny) reported

    @HGSupport @Warten_Weg I rolled back to version. 2.8.5 and that fixes the issue. Wait for @elemntor to fix the update to a proper working version.

  • website_houston Website Marketing (@website_houston) reported

    Run from InMotion Hosting. I have much regret choosing them for dedicated. IT WAS A BIG MISTAKE! #WebHostingPros #webhosting #website #customersupport #help #dreamteam @inmotionhosting #webhosting #hostgator

  • StephenMacasil Stephen Macasil (@StephenMacasil) reported

    I’ve been a customer of @HostGator for over 10 years as a reseller and they treat me like an enemy. It may be time to switch hosting!

  • StephenMacasil Stephen Macasil (@StephenMacasil) reported

    @HostGator is giving me a REALLY difficult time on customer support. Not the way to treat a 10 year customer!

  • ZubyTeck Zubair Alam (@ZubyTeck) reported

    After every few days my website crashes. I'm using @GoDaddy hosting and not getting proper support. This time i want refund or keep posting on my social accounts. #Google #GoDaddy #WordPress #Hosting #bluehost #hostgator

  • KE6ZGP Bryan Herbert 🇺🇸 (@KE6ZGP) reported

    @skystracloud I want to. Ive had a lot of requests to put it back up. I have the files saved to a hard drive. Just no support from HostGator.

  • KE6ZGP Bryan Herbert 🇺🇸 (@KE6ZGP) reported

    @skystracloud I confirmed my identity with HostGator. I told them I wanted to know how the hackers keep getting in. They told me to use a stronger password. There was no investigation or anything. Hackers from Japan took my site down to put up their ecommerce site.

  • KE6ZGP Bryan Herbert 🇺🇸 (@KE6ZGP) reported

    @skystracloud HostGator used to be amazing. Sometime back they were sold to some company and since then theyve been shit.

  • kimberlygeswein Kimberly Geswein (@kimberlygeswein) reported

    @HGSupport @HostGator That’s cool but yeah there isn’t a WDPS1 MySQL database. It doesn’t exist anymore. Talked to three different support agents for several hours. So yes, the other databases exist. But that one is gone. No trace of it. I’ve done multiple restores.

  • KE6ZGP Bryan Herbert 🇺🇸 (@KE6ZGP) reported

    @ZDNet Over a year ago, I disabled all plugins and hackers still gained admin control of my website. HostGator refuses to encrypt or help in any way. They blamed me, told me to use a stronger password. So until HostGator encrypts and the WP backdoor is closed, my site is down.

  • EmaCornaCopia #BACKUPYOUCREEP (@EmaCornaCopia) reported

    Escaped the last Mercury Retrograde unscathed. Today the planets grabbed me by the collar and shouted ***** GET TF BACK HERE Currently in mountains of hellscape. GoDaddy, Hostgator, website migrations, emails down, just PILES of BS to troubleshoot since 8am PST, day's not over.

  • SerbiX_Ks Dejan Krstić (@SerbiX_Ks) reported

    @HostGator For the last 2 months I have a problem with reseller package. The server is often slow and it stops working couple times a day. I contacted your technical support many times when the server stopped working. They fix the issue, but after a short period the problem occurs again.

    @HGSupport i resized it to a few KB and way below the 2500px it states & still the same error. If it'd just be a size issue I would not have bothered you guys.
