Hostgator Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • DenaliWinter Sadistic Stylist Denali (@DenaliWinter) reported

    should I call hostgator support again to get my vanity domain redirect urls actually working, or should I turn them into simple splash pages covered in the link I want people to click? 🤔 Choices...

  • luciensabre Lucien Sabre (@luciensabre) reported

    @blackleg471 @Hostens_hosting One of the WORST you mean. 🤢🤮 Bluehost (and all its fellow EIG brands like HostGator, iPage, JustHost, Host Monster....and several dozens of other brands) are pure hosting garbage. Only their affiliates recommend them.

  • wesdavenport Wes Davenport (@wesdavenport) reported

    @HGSupport hi! I haven’t heard back from support since Jan. 9 after multiple follow ups. My site has been down the entire time.

  • AffiliatesWatch The Affiliate Watch (@AffiliatesWatch) reported

    @selfbankt Yikes, you read a bunch of paid reviews by affiliates. Get a refund and run, HostGator is part of EIG, the worst hosting conglomerate on the face of the planet. Brace for a slow site, non-existent support and malware at some point where they'll charge you an arm and leg to remove

  • FantastcFinds Fantastic Finds (@FantastcFinds) reported

    @HostGator stop sending me invoices for services you are not providing to me... and then blocking my emails to you asking you to stop with these communications. I haven’t been your customer in years. Leave me alone.

  • qiaodengf Name cannot be blank (@qiaodengf) reported

    @HostGator Had such a great experience with this hosting until we needed support. We got our service shut off early, they they promised to fix it and botched that entirely. Still waiting for their help.

  • ForexZoneForum Forex Zone (@ForexZoneForum) reported

    @Antonio_Dns7 Yes, and it is being worked on. The problem is HostGator. They have a 99.9% guarantee, but this is now the 3rd day of problems. Their admins never reply back as promised too. I'm sorry for you not being able to visit the forum. It will be worked out soon.

  • grumpy_again TheGrumpyOldGit (@grumpy_again) reported

    @HGSupport hostgator been slow with data for last few day ? not sure re cache plugin? & link u sent only shows half & cant click it

  • intake_create InTakeCreate (@intake_create) reported

    @steffs_journey I would assume most answers you get in here will be affiliate links. Which isn't bad but doesn't give a great representation of top tier web hosts. For absolute safety, I would honestly say the big names like: Namecheap HostGator Or even goDaddy

  • _David_Curtis_ david curtis (@_David_Curtis_) reported

    @HGSupport hello. My email is down and I can’t access cPanel. Your live chat also appears to be down. Please advise.

  • G2N_HOST G2N HOST (@G2N_HOST) reported

    @HarishKaushik99 @HostGator If you were here you would not be angry, in addition to having support every day by phone and chat.

  • G2N_HOST G2N HOST (@G2N_HOST) reported

    @ScottSandry @Cloudways @HostGator If you were here you would not be angry, in addition to having support every day by phone and chat.

  • ScottSandry Sandry (@ScottSandry) reported

    Hi @Cloudways I am on @HostGator but keep getting "reduce server response time" issues. They cant resolve it (we even disabled every plugin/used default theme) my site is optimized. They just keep suggesting same thing. Can we test the site on your hosting before fully switching?

  • CarolynHogarth Carolyn Hogarth (@CarolynHogarth) reported

    They are saying we have not paid for that site, when in fact we have. We paid for 3 years of service from this site through HostGator, and Word-press. And further someone has been removing my words, and pictures from my site. Why? It is a spam email....

  • HathwayCreative Chris @ HathwayCreative (@HathwayCreative) reported

    @HGSupport Thank you. Yes, I predate them I think. Support have tried to send me a link to reset it a couple of times but the emails never come. I'll look at the settings when I get a minute. Thanks again for the response.

  • HathwayCreative Chris @ HathwayCreative (@HathwayCreative) reported

    @HGSupport Hi, Everytime I login to Live Chat I am asked for a PIN, I've never had a pin and it takes ages to verify me before we can continue. Just over 10 minutes to acheive verification which is a waste of my and your supports time. Is there a solution to this?

  • MlSlave MLSlavePuppet (@MlSlave) reported

    @carolyna_luna @BrigitWrites I’ve used Hostgator for a vanilla site and I was really dissatisfied because it lags, the help they provide isn’t the best and the site loads slowly

  • onlysubas TheOne (@onlysubas) reported

    @HostGator why it takes days to provide the simple solution, we have been waiting for support since Jan 6, i believe you have higher standard support services. Case id:28636321.

  • OdayneHaughton Odayne Haughton (@OdayneHaughton) reported

    @HostGator hey how do I get in touch with your customer service? I really need assistance with my hosting and website.

  • Kevin_Holloman Kevin Holloman (@Kevin_Holloman) reported

    @HGSupport It's kinda messed up that literally every other shared hosting will allow me to alter my php to prevent timeouts, but you guys will not. That's a bad look.

  • sgmgillespie Sam Gillespie (@sgmgillespie) reported

    @HGSupport I have tried around 12 times now to get help through your chat but it keeps failing (messages stop sending and chat support stops replying). How can I get support through email?

  • SmartMediaM SmartMediaMarketing (@SmartMediaM) reported

    @HostGator is HOT Garbage - DO NOT EVER USE THEm.. Billing and Security ISSUES- I promise you will regret it

  • NetEntertainer NETSENTERTAINMENT.COM (@NetEntertainer) reported

    @HostGator You bad support surely gives customers, LateNightThoughts so bad

  • NetEntertainer NETSENTERTAINMENT.COM (@NetEntertainer) reported

    @ConstantContact @Endurance_Group Starting a business is good but hosting with @HostGator is very bad for your business

  • chris5101520 Spider Chris (@chris5101520) reported

    @BrandonStraka Get on hostgator and register your own domain, they provide emails with the service

  • Beruud Jay Zippo (@Beruud) reported

    @HGSupport @HostGator No. Your servers were down, verified by a CSR. They just came back up. Down for over an hour. But all is well now. Thanks 👍

  • Beruud Jay Zippo (@Beruud) reported

    So @HostGator is down. Luckily I saved my content I wrote before it **** the bed. Took CSR 12 minutes to tell me, they are rebooting the server. Since I am in the industry, that should take 2-3 minutes. It's been over an hour. GRRRR. Oh well, guess I can watch #bills play.

  • AManAWarrior 𝒜𝑔𝒽𝒶 𝓡𝓸s𝓱𝓪𝓪𝓷 k𝒽𝒶𝓃 (@AManAWarrior) reported

    @mirela_iepurela @HostGator just checked. they set it up btw always take a whole site backup every week in case the server went down you would have your data.

  • FigTender Tender Fig Branches (@FigTender) reported

    Parler will probably go down and maybe even Rumble. They will get control of big hosting companies like Hostgator, Blue Host, etc. and maybe even big registrars like Godaddy and Namecheap. So they will control the internet and all information. ...for 10 dark days.

  • AManAWarrior 𝒜𝑔𝒽𝒶 𝓡𝓸s𝓱𝓪𝓪𝓷 k𝒽𝒶𝓃 (@AManAWarrior) reported

    @mirela_iepurela @HostGator Maybe the server went down?
