  • KrisVala SpecDiver642 (@KrisVala) reported

    @HGSupport Been trying to get hold of anyone in support for 2 days. My sites are down, and my email is down.

  • KrisVala SpecDiver642 (@KrisVala) reported

    @HostGator My sites are down as well, not just emails. Can't get hold of anyone in support. You guys were moving data centers, looks like that's a big fail.

  • KrisVala SpecDiver642 (@KrisVala) reported

    @HostGator It's not just emails. My sis are down too, and I can't get hold of anyone in support. Horrible.

  • SmarteDesigners Smart eDesigners (@SmarteDesigners) reported

    @HostGator How about this issue now ? Resolved ?

  • SupaWebHosting SupaWebHosting (@SupaWebHosting) reported

    @HostGator Fix your email issues

  • tekchic Shari Morehead (@tekchic) reported

    @robertwmcguire @HostGator It is. I use hostgator to forward my email to gmail and I either get them 7-9 hours later, or not at all. Been having to use the portal on hostgator to check my email w/their awful horde client to see if I'm missing something (and I am - no order confirmations etc)

  • adamtybarra adam ybarra (@adamtybarra) reported

    My webpage has been sporadically down this week and no access to emails. I’m giving @HostGator the benefit of my doubts …so @HostGator please give more updates. This is 2022 and customers feel better when we are heard.

  • loktar00 Loktar 🇺🇸 (@loktar00) reported

    @HGSupport @HostGator Your account for some reason shows up as additional replies that may be sensitive just fyi, Ill make a ticket in the morning last modified date on the directories is 6/29/22 so thinking permissions were messed up during the migration. I imagine that's why many have down sites

  • GuiaAkashico rtomas.lens (@GuiaAkashico) reported

    Emails from @HostGator are not working since last Friday. Yes, 6 days without emails and no answers from the company.

  • randywcgcomics Randy/WCGComics • Inkpot Award 2018 SDCC (@randywcgcomics) reported

    @HGSupport Thanks. But I simply need assistance in migrating a WordPress subdomain into the main account so that it becomes my new default website. I guess I'll try again when things calm down. The phone line mentioned some ongoing systems issue, I have not seen any problems on my end.

  • randywcgcomics Randy/WCGComics • Inkpot Award 2018 SDCC (@randywcgcomics) reported

    @HGSupport I’ve twice called your support line (including today and yesterday) and have not received any return call even though the system said it was around a 10 minute turnaround time. I’ve also been on an open hold on your line for past 26 mins that was supposed to be 8 mins

  • bjbialorucki Billie Jo Bialorucki (@bjbialorucki) reported

    @HostGator THIS IS OUT OF HAND. GET IT TOGETHER. ANYONE USING YOUR SERVER IS LOSING MONEY!!!! And we’re all still paying for ****** service.

  • luisman75 L.M. (@luisman75) reported

    @mhalavo @HostGator I am already transferring my domain and hosting to another provider. @Hostgator is still not fixing the problems and we can't depend on them to work. Another options: A2Host, Dreamhost...

  • IsItYumOrYuck Yum Or Yuck? Ⓥ (@IsItYumOrYuck) reported

    @HostGator 1. Are we potentially looking at weeks of email not working? 2. Can Hostgator still be defined as a hosting provider if they don't provide a functioning email service? 3. Shouldn't you at least get rid of the "99.9% uptime guarantee" from your homepage?

  • MagoDuende Syneidesis (@MagoDuende) reported

    @santiagomc1210 @HostGator Better call by phone! Chat sucks these days, I guess it is related to their outage too

  • NodeSpace NodeSpace Hosting (@NodeSpace) reported

    @DamonLJacobs @profitsinyards @HostGator There are lots of great hosts out there that are overshadowed by bad providers like this and they give us a bad name. I hope you find a good one! And if you're still looking, feel free to add us to your list!

  • Kingofcarrental King of Car Rentals (@Kingofcarrental) reported

    @HostGator It’s been 7 days! Not 2 hours lol. Awful!

  • Kingofcarrental King of Car Rentals (@Kingofcarrental) reported

    @HostGator a week straight of gateway issues delaying my business email, it’s costing me money and you can’t get this fixed. You guys are terrible.

  • NodeSpace NodeSpace Hosting (@NodeSpace) reported

    @aaronsilverman @HostGator We can definitely help with that! Downtime the last month? 0!

  • robertwmcguire Robert Boosted 2X McGuire (@robertwmcguire) reported

    @HostGator Is anyone aware if this issue is also affecting email forwarding or is it possible I have a separate issue going on?

  • JIHVD Jordan (@JIHVD) reported

    Is @HostGator down? @HGSupport

  • MarketingwTHG David Hammond (@MarketingwTHG) reported

    @HostGator Help. Your outages are really hurting my small business…. 😢

  • chacaldelasado lagarto (@chacaldelasado) reported

    @HGSupport @KitchenerTesla @tekchic is there any official statement because hostgator is having problems? I've been 3 days with more than 30 domains without mail and nothing has been reported about it

  • robin_stevenson Robin Stevenson (@robin_stevenson) reported

    @HostGator Not just emails- my website is down. When will this be fixed- any idea of timeline?

  • shoaibhussain Shoaib Hussain (@shoaibhussain) reported

    @profitsinyards @HostGator Same for everyone the past two weeks that’s why changed hosting of few websites out of hostgator. Will move other websites too if not fixed soon! Websites not loading and emails not working!

  • profitsinyards Taylor Thompson (@profitsinyards) reported

    @BilalBhatti @HostGator Yeah- I noticed the same thing. Happens with Xfinity, but they actually fix the problem. I don't know, mate. I'm giving it probably until Friday night- And if nothing, looks like my Friday night is planned out for me changing hosts.

  • santiagomc1210 Santiago Meléndez (@santiagomc1210) reported

    @HostGator Still the same problem than last week, emails take a lot to reach its destination and your support team is not responding by chat.

  • santiagomc1210 Santiago Meléndez (@santiagomc1210) reported

    @HostGator apparently you didn't solve the email's issue, today emails sended can't reach destination properly, it takes more than 2 hours in some cases. Chat support agents didn't answer either.

  • RockerUrano Rocker Uraño (@RockerUrano) reported

    @HostGator My webpage is down again. Third time this week and is impossible to get any help from you guys. Please help.

  • hector7131 Héctor Torres (@hector7131) reported

    @HostGator I have problems sending and receiving emails, I've been intermittent for 1 week, the page and the domain are down, support chat does not respond... I need help!!
