Hostgator, Bluehost, Hostmonster ALL DOWN?!

by arranrice 152 replies
So for the past few hours all of my websites have been down. Including my large website which is hosted on a bluehost dedicated server. (my large site being down will affect tens of thousands of people )

Does anyone know what is actually happening?

Thousands of people on twitter are complaining, it seems like a data center in Provo, UTAH is down or something? Or they have lost internet there?

      Yeah, bluehost is defiantly down!

      It's really annoying! I'm loosing money every minute my sites are down. People who's sites were affected should get compensation.

    There was apparently a network related issue earlier this morning that I recall reading about. EIG hosts seem to be having tons of problems lately, especially with the botched migrations from HostGator to Provo.

    Same here, I can't get access to my cPanel and all my sites are down, including my money sites. Hostgator has been getting worse and worse lately; I think it is time for me to switch host...

    Its time everyone reads this very carefully and understand they are now all EIG companies and they will reduce there cost by migrating your site to there own DC.. so its no more softlayer support for you guy now.

    So dont fall from one EIG company to another better is find some reliable hosting providers like

    Webhost.UK.Net
    Rackspace.com
    Rshosting.Com
    SiteGround.Com

    This are the places you will find better support,Good uptime and service for what you pay.

    I have migrated all my sites from hostgator in last 3 month and really happy with my decision.

      What's the simplest and least painful way to move from HG aka EIG to another more reliable hosting service. I am joining the mass exodus, I am sick of the issues and don't trust this new company.

    All customers who are using these hosting companies are facing Downtime frequently which is bad for there business as well as SEO. I think It is the time move on to another reliable hosting provider.

    All my HG sites are up now. However, they are a big S-L-O-W, if you know what we mean. Time to look at other alternatives is near. I am paying top dollar as a reseller for quality that would get me kicked off ebay for sure. What is going on? This company sux!

    Services should virtually all be returning to normal. This upgrade clearly did not go as planned (we realize this is an understatement), and it truly should have been transparent and seamless. We realize that apologies do not properly compensate for unexpected issues like this, however we want to thank everyone that commented to us with understanding and positive messages while we worked to resolve this. Your understanding is appreciated.

      Unbelievable, tons of people have been using it due to their popularity and now it's time to move onto better hosting services.

    My hostgator sites are coming back up for me, but very slowly. Hopefully they fixed the issue and everything will resume to normal.

    It is really sad. HostGator used to be the best shared hosting.

    Now it has more and more problems after been bought by EIG.
