Is anyone having trouble with their hostgator today? For the first time ever my sites are down and they said there was some emergency on one of their servers.

Anyone else down?

    I just checked, and my sites loaded, albeit EXTREMELY slow.

    Grrrrr. This is the first time I've ever had an issue. Hope they fix it soon. I dont want to lose sales.

      Yeah, I've NEVER had a problem either until now. I'm trying to find out how many on that server got hit. I am hoping that my admin didn't accidentally mess something up as I gave him my back door access to my c-panel, but I am sure there is nothing you can do to mess them up from their. I certainly don't want hostgator trying to blame me for something.

      I am getting ready to transfer a domain over their with a lot of members and heavy traffic so this comes at a interesting time.

      I like hostagor cause I can use it and understand it. My last company didn't make any sense to me with some kinda floating shared server mumbo jumbo. No c-panel. Service was okay when you called for help but the crap never ran good.

          What's the site about Chris? Or is that improper for me to ask. I know you guys are all up tight about your markets. I'm not into that stealing idea thing that you guys are afraid of. It's too bad that this kinda thing happens out their.

          In my niche : underground seduction community, those rats have stolen every thing that I've come out with. I've realized there is nothing that you can do about it. It still bugs! Majorly!

            From what I understand there is major flooding in texas right now, which is where their servers are. I use hostgator for my hosting, and all of my websites appear fine now.

    No, but I had issues a few days ago. They are going through growing pains after a recent mega sale.

      Yeah I heard about that flooding also and it made feel better. I was worried my guy messed something up in testing the system and stuff. I didn't want to yell at him for trying to learn something but I also didn't want them coming after poor little ole me.

        some emergency on one of their servers
        That's the reason I like a large hosting provider like HG - they have the personnel and resources to solve an emergency problem as quickly as possible.

        I'm trying to find out how many on that server got hit.
        I don't know how you could that or why you'd want the info - you can't solve the problem.

        When sites go down there's a human tendency to want to "do something" but fact is, sites go down occasionally no matter what hosting you have. Let HG deal with it - do something else until problem is solved. Keeps your stress levels down.

    I'm still experiencing extremely slow sites from hostgator (I have two other hosts as well and they are not affected) so it appears they are going through something still - anyone else?
