I know a lot of you use hostgator for hosting but considering the f*kups these clowns made the last few weeks, i want to advise everyone not to use them for hosting your clients mobile sites and /or wordpress sites..
Little report of what happened to my baby and reseller account in the last 2 weeks:
"Server update" temporarily whiped out total public_html folder..(taking down some 20+ sites for a whole day..)
Few days ago one of my sites went to a suspended page...explanation from hostgator: glitch in the system..
Also few days ago: forbidden 403 errors on 15 sites due to a tos/cpu story.
I apologize, but I was forced to suspend the directory /home/xxxx/public_html as multiple scripts inside were causing high loading issues on the server. Due to it affecting all of the other accounts on the system, we had to take immediate action for the health of the server. |
Please be aware, we do not normally disable directories except in rare cases where multiple scripts are causing issues. We believe this is the only way to prevent a server crash and potential loss of data.
Long story short..
Don`t risk your business by hosting your sites and your clients sites with them because they will cause you a lot of problems and will kill your business in a second..
That said, any tips for real professional hosting are much appreciated..
