    PSA: SparkedHost are shit, most hosts with a Discord have proven to be toxic and shit. Don't go with Hostgator or EIG. Go for a2hosting with no EIG ownership

    So, I've just started the transfer process to take the PWHS website away from Host Gator. So freaking happy to finally know I never have to worry about the terrible, unreliable and down-right unethical tosspots that are the #WorldsWorstHosts #HostGator

    8 jobs, longest was 3 years 5 months, 27. I only recently left that longest job because of extremely poor management by Endurance/HostGator and have moved onto much, much greener pastures.

    loooooooove to spend a few more hours chatting with @HostGator tech support to fix my busted website they supposedly fixed a few days ago instead of doing anything constructive with my time. Love it

    @erikblair I have the same problem of appalling service from @HostGator + questionable behaviour from @SiteLock Dreadful companies.

  • pamelamaeross
    Pam Ross (@pamelamaeross) reported

    @HostGator Hmmm... your security partner, SiteLock, just called me and told me there was a potential security concern b/c my domain has outgrown the resources it has... It's a domain name I've purchased and never used. Questionable integrity. Not cool.

  • Ajaydeore1

    @HGSupport that's the issue, to talk with your agents there is 15-20 wait time, after that they took 15-20 min to reply slowly slowly i think system should be upgrated, other hosting companies going too ahead with fast response for customers you guys need to think about that #hostgator

    Finally I did it! After 5 days and so many hours, emails and frustration fighting for my #copyrights, @HostGator finally shut down the violating website. Hope that next copyrights violators will be treated much faster.

    @HostGator as a customer, I can't see my ticket history in the portal. I guess you don't allow support

    @HostGator Never subscribed anywhere with my new email. I bought a hosting with you 2 days ago, and my inbox started to fill with spam. Did you sell my contact information?

  • sharonphoto
    SharonPhoto (@sharonphoto) reported

    After almost 4 days, many hours with the support, 2 #DMCA forms and many emails @HostGator refuses to shut down a #copyright violating site which uses my #art with no permission. Maybe @ICANN can help forcing them to do the obvious? Any better idea?

    @JWomackKingGeek @CailoreDM HostGator is pretty good. I used them back when I started hosting my stuff. They support a one-click WordPress install (who doesn't these days?) that can get you going. But if you've never done WP before, you're looking down a lot of tutorials to get to where you want to be.

  • sharonphoto
    SharonPhoto (@sharonphoto) reported

    Opening a site with @HostGator takes few minutes. Asking @HGSupport to shut down a copyrights violating website they host takes already 3 days and 2 #DMCA which they can't find.. This way they are supporting copyrights violation. They should have shut down site immediately!!!

  • permelia_media
    permeliamedia (@permelia_media) reported

    @JohnPullum @HGSupport mine came back within a half hour - I haven't had issues with them until today. But the half hour waiting on tech support that wasn't much help wasn't cool.

  • sharonphoto
    SharonPhoto (@sharonphoto) reported

    @hostgator is violating my copyrights by not closing a website they host which shows my copyrighted work without permission. After 3 days of discussion and 2 DMCA forms they refuse to close down the site. Supporting copyright violators? Is that your way?

  • abu99ali
    AbuAli (@abu99ali) reported

    @HostGator At least be professional enogh to answer my concerns in a professional way without resorting to these cheap marketing methods. Straight to the point. It’s not right how you are dealing. With my case. I am a loyal customer and should be treated better. Fix your site builder

    @HGSupport You have more issues than any other host I have other assets with. You need to improve, and that goes for customer support too which currently sucks.

    @HGSupport Except my test email was not returned to sender. I've sent two emails from separate gmail account for testing purposes: one while hostgator mail was offline and one after going back online. The second one arrived fine, the first one was never returned and had no errors

    Hal Shubin (@halShubin) reported

    @HGSupport Looks like there was a mail-server outage. Obviously, you can't email me when that happens, but is it posted somewhere? That would save a lot of time on my side – I wouldn't have to try to figure out the problem when it's not on my end. Thanks.

    @permelia_media @HGSupport I think I've been on the phone with HostGator tech support in the past week than I was with BlueHost in a year. I paid for a couple of different add-on options and that isn't even working yet. I hope we all get out email corrected soon.

    @HGSupport If anyone send email to me before you correct the issue, what will happen to these emails? Can I find them in my mailbox later? Or these email will be returned to the sender and I will never have a chance to get them? I use it as business email, it is very urgent!
