    @HGSupport Hostgator support is one of the shit I have come through ... They leave the conversation in between. Regretting 🤖😭😭😭😭😭😭

  • FarhaTabassumK Farhatabassum khan (@FarhaTabassumK) reported

    @HostGator your support team is miserable. Purchased new hosting domain today.. regretting now. 😭😭😭😭😭😭

    @bganey @HostGator @HGSupport I am not a lawyer, but you probably have a case to sue for likeness. If it wasn't illegal to use someone's likeness for product endorsement without approval then it'd happen all the time with celebrities, but it almost never does.

  • fadeagbo olufemi adeagbo (@fadeagbo) reported

    @SiteLock despite us willing to let you resolve the problem which ue affiliate hostgator have dilly dallied about, u are insisting we enter into a 1- year agreement.. shame companies can hold customers hostage this way. We won't roll over and will seek redress for business losses..

  • karahugglestone Kara Hugglestone (@karahugglestone) reported

    .@HostGator @HGSupport Please contact me ASAP re plan upgrade bait and switch - 20 minutes an counting on hold for help! #hostgatorfail

  • fadeagbo olufemi adeagbo (@fadeagbo) reported

    @SiteLock @Inc We have very serious issues with your services and your affiliated company, hostgator ( who actually did a password reset without our knowledge and permission),and now we are being shut down for malware, (that only you seem to resolve, if we pay some $2,700) this stinks!!

  • Checkout_Saver Checkout Saver (@Checkout_Saver) reported

    @youravgdough I got ripped with HostGator. Dunno exact cost, maybe $15/mo, but service is terrible. Server is a shared resource w other users - limited control and super slow. Migrating to AWS soon w/ free EC2 server for a year.

  • YellowtailFP Dennis Hall (@YellowtailFP) reported from Bruton, England

    @HGSupport After some back and forth email I eventually got my cancellation request dealt with. But if you think I would ever use your services again you can think again. Easy to sign up difficult to cancel- you’re not the kind of people I want to do business with.

  • YellowtailFP Dennis Hall (@YellowtailFP) reported from Paddington, England

    So tiring and unnecessary of you @HostGator to ignore my explicit instructions to cancel 3 services and you reply informing me you have cancelled one of the add on services, funnily enough you only cancelled the cheapest

  • masbonetizen masbo (@masbonetizen) reported

    @avenger_hosting @thelogosmith @SiteGround U were right about hostgator. I remember when i purchase hosting at hostgatot, my credit card company emailing me that the transactions might "fraud", i never receive fraud warning when i do transaction. I ever purchase on godaddy, namecheap, codecanyon, or even small code seller

  • StopTheComplain StopYourComplaining (@StopTheComplain) reported

    @masbonetizen @HGSupport We're just trying to help. You keep being you. Continue to whine and complain on the interwebz and achieve nothing. #byefelicia

  • masbonetizen masbo (@masbonetizen) reported

    @StopTheComplain @HGSupport Yes, complain me is also didnt fix ur brain.

  • StopTheComplain StopYourComplaining (@StopTheComplain) reported

    @masbonetizen @HGSupport [Insert any other CMS]. Stop complaining man! Tweeting isn't going to fix anything.

  • masbonetizen masbo (@masbonetizen) reported

    @HGSupport Didnt get any ticket, ur staff say that my website is fast enough,, over and over again. Without touching my actual problem

  • vtimd Tim Davis (@vtimd) reported

    @pmcsharry @bluehost My WP is on @HostGator. Have been with them for a longggggg time. Great service! Never had to submit a single ticket.

  • masbonetizen masbo (@masbonetizen) reported

    @will_luton Hostgator - keep writing ur .htaccess over and over again, slow server response, they not believe when i say my website has slow server response. My suggestion is, if u have a good skill of website codes php, js, css, html, godaddy is prfect choice.

  • simonlawton Simon Lawton (@simonlawton) reported from North Gosforth, England

    @HostGator I’ve been trying to migrate back my website for over ten days and your migration team still haven’t managed it. Have rung twice and still absolutely nothing. Rang 8 hours ago. Long call and still NOTHING. Awful service!

    @houman_ag @HostPapa @arvixe @GoDaddy @interserver @HostGator My first time using hostgator in 2009, at that moment they are the best, best tech support, best server, etc. In 2012 i move to cheaper hosting. Now in 2019 im back to gator, but what i found is, their quality downgrade, less knowledge tech support, and slow server ;(

    I have used #domain/#hosting services from @HostPapa @arvixe @GoDaddy @interserver and a couple more in the past, but so far my one week experience with @HostGator has been absolutely horrendous! Unbelievably awful! Simply, the worst!! #LessonLearned

  • Chasfelt Chas (@Chasfelt) reported

    @HGSupport Please refer to chats from yesterday, which you promised to fix things within 24hrs. I keep getting the same response that you’re working on it.

  • Chasfelt Chas (@Chasfelt) reported

    @HostGator, please fix the servers. All of my sites and email aren't working.

  • Chasfelt Chas (@Chasfelt) reported

    All of my @HostGator sites and email are down. No resolution in sight. This has gone on too long, please fix it.

  • Chasfelt Chas (@Chasfelt) reported

    All of my @HostGator sites and email are still down. No resolution in site. Very frustrating.

  • _shahroznawaz Shahroze Nawaz (@_shahroznawaz) reported

    @presstitanwp @francocolomba @HGSupport Yeah that's the alarming issue, still millions of websites are running on PHP 5.x versions which must need to migrated. Hosting companies like @Cloudways is providing multiple PHP versions for the easiness of you :)

  • lifefrance The Good Life France (@lifefrance) reported

    @HostGator I am but the problem I thought got fixed yesterday is now a problem again so day 4 unable to work - I really need this fixed guys

  • dns2140 David Sagala (@dns2140) reported

    @wpmedic @HostGator Hey thanks guys, I have talked to the CS and the problem now is already resolved

  • mart1_n Martin (@mart1_n) reported

    Dealing with @hostgator support is like being in the 8th circle of Dantes hell.

  • Tulashipaudel Tulashi Ram Paudel (@Tulashipaudel) reported

    @HGSupport I don't trust this page as it is not a verified page. Also, I have called many a times for this issue.

  • lifefrance The Good Life France (@lifefrance) reported

    @HGSupport Hi ticket number is 10873022 - have contacted live support 4 times, keep being told its currently being worked on, day 3 now...

  • Obinna_Gates O.G Obinna (@Obinna_Gates) reported

    @web4africa kindly respond to my tickets #501624 #950249 it’s d same issue. Your delay in response makes my clients think I’m unserious. Start responding under 10mins weekends&weekdays. Hostgator, hostinger, godaddy respond in shorter time. Abeg this is 2019.

  • CatchTheseWords Holly Scott-Gardner (@CatchTheseWords) reported

    @sorressean Hostgator, but the issue is with a wordpress plugin. The email subscription form on my site doesn't seem to be working when it did in the past. Not sure if it's a browser issue on my end, or that the plugin has stopped working.

  • _ragegun ragegun (@_ragegun) reported

    @kukuruyo @Nephanor @HostGator Likely an arbitrary number that only exists as a justification to pull a site sucking down huge amounts of bandwidth

  • kukuruyo Kukuruyo (@kukuruyo) reported

    @Nephanor @HostGator Yeah i've read about it in some forums. It means you can upload stuff until they decide it's too much and kick you out XD. And that's the problem, i have no idea if what i have is too much.

  • lifefrance The Good Life France (@lifefrance) reported

    @HostGator It does! And I'm hoping it will spark joy for me when my tech issue logged with you is resolved...

  • BryanMBowden Bryan M. Bowden (@BryanMBowden) reported

    @HostGator You jam pack your shared hosting with the max and this makes the sites on that shared hosting slow as shit! Stewing your customer is not a good business model

  • BryanMBowden Bryan M. Bowden (@BryanMBowden) reported

    @HostGator I’ve been a hostgator customer for a few years and ever since you got taken over by the current company my website doesn’t load fast let alone most of the time. I called and complained but you have done nothing.

  • TallDavid TallDavid (@TallDavid) reported

    @HGSupport Tried that multiple times. Hostgator lied to me and refused to put me in contact with a member of management to discuss the business problem.

  • wpmedic WordPress Medic (@wpmedic) reported

    @JennyBells @HGSupport That's great. They probably broke something when moving files. I would try and get them to tell you what it was. Always good to know the issue and how it was fixed.

  • JennyBells Jenny Pitcher (@JennyBells) reported

    @wpmedic @HGSupport And drumroll please.... I think HG has solved the issue :) YAY! Still not sure what the problem was but they've been in touch with me and shown me the link is now working with blog posts on it. #DAYMADE

  • JennyBells Jenny Pitcher (@JennyBells) reported

    @wpmedic @HGSupport No, that I haven't tried. I am not touching the site while HG is working on the problem cause I don't want to hinder anything they are working on.... I am sure they'd probably appreciate that too :) Hoping they will figure out problem.

  • JennyBells Jenny Pitcher (@JennyBells) reported

    @wpmedic @HGSupport Oh yes, I've done that. So did HG support. Nothing works. We redirected the non working /blog url, but so far the posts page is a mystery. We renamed it something other than blog and had same result of it not displaying the posts...

  • JennyBells Jenny Pitcher (@JennyBells) reported

    @wpmedic @HGSupport Renaming the page to something other than blog didn’t resolve the issue either.

  • JennyBells Jenny Pitcher (@JennyBells) reported

    @wpmedic @HGSupport Client had the site set up in directory /blog/ so every url including home page had blog in it. Hostgator resolved that issue Thursday but the page created to be the blog won’t work. We see permission error.

  • JennyBells Jenny Pitcher (@JennyBells) reported

    @HGSupport Chatting with hosting support for over an hour was not how my Saturday was supposed to start :(

  • Dantvman Dan Pelletier (@Dantvman) reported

    I’m one more day of things not working from taking my business away from @HostGator

  • hubcr8iv_john John Lyons (@hubcr8iv_john) reported from Chatham-Kent, Ontario

    @HostGator Tell Snappy he needs to quit screwing around and fix your servers and get our clients’ sites back online...

  • adissolutelife Hyacinth Jones (@adissolutelife) reported

    Also, I’m not kidding when I say I don’t know WTFuckingF people do when crazy stupid shit like this happens & they don’t have a @DomSigns in their corner. @HostGator has been insisting I’m doing something wrong & @DomSigns is like NOPE THEYRE WRONG LETS MOVE YOU OFF NOW. 😍

  • mjhaver5 Ali Jhaver (@mjhaver5) reported

    @HGSupport do not use. Our main server down for 16 hours and they're clueless.

  • itscesargil Cesar Gil (@itscesargil) reported from Houston, Texas

    .@HostGator hey all our websites have been down for 6+ hours

    @HGSupport hi can you help me with Case number 10856659please

  • DomSigns Signs (@DomSigns) reported

    @HGSupport Now you have one less customer and I have one more happy client.

  • StooCollins Stoo (@StooCollins) reported

    @HGSupport Yep I know you “should” be able to, but you can’t. The password generator button and strength meter are broken. I did talk to live support and they said it was a known issue that should be fixed in a couple of days, that was a couple of weeks ago.

  • DomSigns Signs (@DomSigns) reported

    @HGSupport I would but you are useless and I move any client that is having problems away from your hosting and all the problem vanish. That is how I will solve my current clients troubles
