    @HGSupport @HostGator Now it is nearly whole day for our websites down time. All you have to say is, we are working hard. This was unexpected and very disappointing for being a customer of #hostgator . Just imagine our position that how are we facing our clients & you cant even give us time frame.

    @HostGator @HGSupport My website seems to be working fine now, so hopefully whatever issue has been resolved. Thanks.

    @ChrisLeckness @HostGator We want to help get this resolved! Please send us the related CASE ID via DM so that we may look into this further Chris!

  • ChrisLeckness Chris Leckness (@ChrisLeckness) reported

    I get this error every time I try to connect. I have tried numerous accounts. I have tried IP address, server name, account names myself and support staff created. All the same error message. I have tried w/ or w/o firewall on. (3/6) @HGSupport @HostGator

  • ChrisLeckness Chris Leckness (@ChrisLeckness) reported

    The tech I talked to tonight said that you guys have exhausted all efforts and that this is my problem. I have been with you guys a long time & have never had issues. This just popped up after years of accessing the server the way I was accessing it. (6/6) @HGSupport @HostGator

  • ChrisLeckness Chris Leckness (@ChrisLeckness) reported

    I have tried to connect with other 3 other FTP clients on my desktop. I have tried several on 3 different laptops in a couple different cities. I have even tried over mobile network on my phone. Same error. (5/6) @HGSupport @HostGator

  • ChrisLeckness Chris Leckness (@ChrisLeckness) reported

    When I first got this error, I tried trouble shooting on my own. I found articles telling me how to fix this, including possible issues with firewall. Nothing would work. I have called in & online chatted 5-6 times now. I was referred to T2 twice. (2/6) @HGSupport @HostGator

  • ChrisLeckness Chris Leckness (@ChrisLeckness) reported

    Hello @HostGator. I am not getting much support on an FTP issue. I have been able to connect w/o for years. I started getting an error about 2 wks ago. This is the error: The data connection could not be established: ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server (1/6) @HGSupport

  • AdonyaWong Adonya Wong (@AdonyaWong) reported

    @HGSupport @HostGator Too bad your techs are incompetent.

  • violetgarnet LunaVioleta (@violetgarnet) reported

    @HGSupport I have already send DM and after ANOTHER HOUR my site is still down... #hostgator

  • Sdlion Sdlion (@Sdlion) reported

    Classic #hostgator then when they do response and you explain them what you already have done (even what other support staff has done) they'll keep trying template fixes until you get a competent support dude.

  • violetgarnet LunaVioleta (@violetgarnet) reported

    Almost 3 HOURS ago I have asked @HostGator to help me restart my server and I still haven't received and answer. @HGSupport sucks!

  • ThePronExpert ThePronExpert (@ThePronExpert) reported

  • navinmodi Navin Modi (@navinmodi) reported

    @HostGator Poor Service, a false promise by your CS team. My Invoicing is screwed :(

    @virginmedia Authentication / connection errors on all email accounts hosted with HostGator , connecting on port 587 / 993

  • rajeshhiox rajesh (@rajeshhiox) reported

    @DIPPGOI @CimGOI India should consider retaliatory tariffs on US online service based companies too. Likes of godaddy, hostgator earning huge revenues from India without even having offices in India.

  • unnblunted pukey bat🦇 (@unnblunted) reported

    @Marginally_Here I just started too!! So I bought a domain; and used hostgator to get the site online, and edited it using Weebly!!! I haven’t started writing I’m still editing but I decided I needed to just have a place to write. 💜 I’d love to help/follow yours!

  • StopWebBullying Stop Cyberbullying (@StopWebBullying) reported

    We’re looking for #hosting #recommendations as @hostgator don’t even offer php 7.2 on cPanel yet and we don’t want to keep paying them for a substandard service with mediocre excuse-based support. (@hgsupport)

  • themidfieldtips NBA Punters🏀 (@themidfieldtips) reported

    @wpmedic @HostGator Thanks, the initial issue of a temporary file for adding media files and themes was fixed, but now I'm stuck with this error when updating and installing plugins - "Update Failed: Download failed. Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writable."

  • themidfieldtips NBA Punters🏀 (@themidfieldtips) reported

    @HostGator Any chance you guys could fix my website that's been down for 4 days now. Oh yeah, and all 5 sites that I have with you guys are basically unable to be edited at this point. Despite my ticket being "escalated" 3 days ago, still no response from the admins.m #poor

  • Nicolas_Bowling Nicolas Bowling (@Nicolas_Bowling) reported

    I will be transferring the site from @GoDaddy to @HostGator this weekend. I’ve contacted GoDaddy so many times for help with my server. It is spotty, either loads slow or not at all. Have received no help. I’ve been with them for years.

  • tomtolkien Tom Tolkien (@tomtolkien) reported

    @HGSupport Unfortunately your support have not been able to offer php 7.2+ manually.

  • SCIllustrated SportsCarIllustrated (@SCIllustrated) reported

    @HostGator @TTN_TheTechNews I've been waiting all morning to upload updates to my sites on host gator and can't. Spent an hour on chat room and told they couldn't fix it and that I would receive an email from an administrator. In the meantime I'm out of business.

  • bulletin_ben Ben Robinson (@bulletin_ben) reported

    @HGSupport It's fine, @SiteGround managed to help me in 15 minutes.

  • bulletin_ben Ben Robinson (@bulletin_ben) reported

    @HGSupport It's fine, the new service I switched to are helping me. They don't seem to have any issues replying fast

  • brianoflondon 🇮🇱Dr Brian of London (@brianoflondon) reported

    Sometime in the last few minutes, since sending this tweet @hostgator have completely fixed my server and all my sites are back up! 😃👍🏅 I know they were bogged down with fixing a critical EXIM Mail problem across all their servers.

  • stepaheadfilms gaurav garg (@stepaheadfilms) reported

    @HostGator it’s almost 24 hours since MySQL on my VPS failed and after two support chats I still haven’t had any ticket updates by mail. Not even to confirm tickets are open.

  • stepaheadfilms gaurav garg (@stepaheadfilms) reported

    @HostGator THIRD CLASS SERVICE PROVIDER. never believe them. why just blame the customer for all things. to know more what they do call @ 9811824137

  • nitjpr Nitin (@nitjpr) reported

    @HostGator , @hgsupport @hostgatorindia I had a very bad experience with the support team of hostgator. Recently all my websites hosted on whm stopped working and when i raised a ticket on #hostgatorindia they email me that they cannot help me.

  • GregsKitchen Gregs Kitchen (@GregsKitchen) reported

    The most awful customer service from @hostgator on phone for 20 minutes asking for a supervisor...NOTHING

  • SkirtWad Sam (@SkirtWad) reported

    @lostdelirium @HostGator @bluehost I used to use @bluehost :D they answered fairly quickly for tech support and weren’t SUPER expensive, no more website though so I haven’t used them in a couple years but I had a great experience with them
