  • EmilyQuestions EmilyQuestions ▶️ Want to sponsor #SMMW20? DM me! (@EmilyQuestions) reported

    @HostGator: #WebProTip #318 Plugins! We love plugins - when used correctly. They can cause you problems if they aren't compatible with your site, or become out of date. Ana, Customer Service Manager

  • skystracloud Skystra - Cloud Hosting (@skystracloud) reported

    @leandropsouza @umbler @HostGator That sucks. If you need options, let me know.

  • ArceleaP Arcelea Pepito (@ArceleaP) reported

    @HostGator Yep! Completely agree. Errors will rise soon if plugins and themes are not compatible to each other too. Just like in any relationship! 😅

  • Kevin_77s Kevin Thompson (@Kevin_77s) reported

    @HGSupport cannot login to my account, even when I reset/change my password

  • MrROseBot 🌹Mr. Rosebot 🤖 Future Academy Member (@MrROseBot) reported

    GoDaddy is currently down probably along with your website, that's why I use @HostGator because they're reliable and always on top of security issues!

  • glermzz Glermz (@glermzz) reported

    @funngameztv @TwitchSupport @Twitter @HostGator @pewdiepie @Twitch @Google Its really sad. I had few harassment problems myself the first year of twitch. This kinda people deserve daily hell. I know its rather easy to say than to doo it but, dont give up, stay strong, stream for those who matter, dont let herks win by letting yourself down.

  • AvelardoSabatin Avelardo Sabatino (@AvelardoSabatin) reported

    @HostGator are there any issues right now, our server disappeared.

  • Rogue_Ren Really_Ren (@Rogue_Ren) reported

    @funngameztv @TwitchSupport @Twitter @HostGator @pewdiepie @Twitch @Google Holy crap, man. Obviously none of that bullshit is true and I doubt anyone would be thick enough to believe it, but for the life of me I can't imagine what would drive a person to do that. Stay strong, you're a great streamer and we love you <3 Don't let this get you down.

  • Winter75013851 Winter (@Winter75013851) reported

    @funngameztv @TwitchSupport @Twitter @HostGator @pewdiepie @Twitch @Google This is unacceptable. Not of that is true. I hope you can take down the site. And if there is anything we can do tell us. Good luck.

  • GrunkieKong t🎃by (@GrunkieKong) reported

    @funngameztv @TwitchSupport @Twitter @HostGator @pewdiepie @Twitch @Google You don't deserve this shit, dude. Hang in there, we're here for you.

  • Griver84 Griver84 (@Griver84) reported

    @funngameztv @TwitchSupport @Twitter @HostGator @pewdiepie @Twitch @Google I just... omg man. Besides the obvious, if there's anything I can do to help (even if its just a listening ear) let me know. going to spread the word and hopefully help this get taken down. Some people don't understand the ramifications of doing stuff like this.

  • lucian0pf Luciano Franca (@lucian0pf) reported

    @zeithq I love you guys... seriously... but that's not a good move, maybe adding a "developer" plan with on-demand usage would help a bit. Strike 1: Leave Slack Strike 2: Hostgator like pricing model Seems like Now is moving away from developers who love tech =\

  • TLMudd Tom Mudd (@TLMudd) reported

    @jcallister @HGSupport I’ve been having the same exact issue with @bluehost...interesting

  • KiwiEV Gavin Shoebridge (@KiwiEV) reported

    A company called Hostgator looks promising. But God help me, moving hosting providers is a kind of hell I'd not wish on my enemies. Ugh.

  • GetBetter_TSoGA GetBetter (@GetBetter_TSoGA) reported

    @GoDaddyHelp looks like now we have to soon migrate to @HostGator Probably i should have not trusted @GoDaddy at the first place big mistake. You never forget to remind for the due payments however when u made a blunder, its our fault 😡

    @HGSupport @Peeyush_911 HI, This our Ticket NO:- KPD-937-62627 Its been longtime, your people are working on our ticket can you help me to resolve our problem at earliest.

  • skystracloud Skystra (@skystracloud) reported

    @jcallister @HGSupport No access for more than a week...that sucks. I'm a competitor (full disclosure) but I think we can help you out in the future. Feel free to give us a shout.

  • jcallister John Callister (@jcallister) reported

    @HGSupport I have not been able to access my CPanel for more than a week now. An initial Live Chat with support resolved the matter but only temporarily. Trying to reconnect with Live Chat only now directs me to Find Help whose answers are NOT at all helpful.

  • long Jonathan Long (@long) reported from Miami, Florida

    @HostGator Your outsourced support is so bad. It gets worse by the day. Pathetic.

  • tristanlarsin Tristan Larsin (@tristanlarsin) reported

    Looks like the updated nameserver for the domain has been spotty. Keeps switching from GoDaddy's default html file and my files on HostGator. Fix will have to wait until tomorrow.

  • vincemalfeo Vince Malfeo (@vincemalfeo) reported

    @SolitaryMindset @HGSupport @HostGator @Namecheap Let me know how Namecheap goes...I'm so tired of Hostgator. Have 2 accounts here, chat support is worthless. Phone support is a little better but still...people working there are not knowledgable of technical issues and just Google answers.

But would love to!!!! I want to get my story out to as many people as possible! All I want to do is help.

  • SolitaryMindset Philip Harris (@SolitaryMindset) reported

    Finally plucked up the courage to try to move the rest of my domains away from @HostGator Surprise surprise nothing works and I'm now stuck trying to extract some semblance of support from them. At least this will be the last time.

  • DomainGang Domain Gang (@DomainGang) reported

    Some guy called "Matt Snyder" from .@HostGator is one damn persistent spammer. Now I have to add Hostgator to the list of companies to avoid.

  • quadrishah846 Shah Quadri (@quadrishah846) reported

    @PAniefiok @HostGator Sometimes setting file permissions to 755 also does not rectify the issue. Hostgator is great. But some bugs can be really annoying.

  • PAniefiok Life of a Nerd ✪ (@PAniefiok) reported

    Its sad that in @HostGator file permission is a problem. That, I noticed today. I spent hours finding out why i kept seeing 500 internal error. Then realized it was a file permission issue. Unless file is served with 755 Permission It'll throw back error 500 #Linux #programming

  • PAniefiok Life of a Nerd ✪ (@PAniefiok) reported

    Am surprised that @HostGator allow file permission to be a problem. That, I noticed today. I spent hours finding out why i kept seeing 500 internal error. Then realized it was a file permission issue. Unless file is served with 755 Permission It'll throw back error 500 😪😪😪

    @HGSupport Your senior admin fixed one thing on my dedicated server, and crashed another thing. Didn't take the time to properly look if all services are running. Site is currently experiencing issues, see case id: 17370495

  • bilange Eric Belanger (@bilange) reported

    I hate hostgator with a flaming passion. - Help, outbound messages to MSFT are dropped. - I see you have MX elsewhere. Won't support. - We use your servers for outgoing. - My diagnostic tools won't properly diagnose the issue. WAT.

  • wpmedic WordPress Medic (@wpmedic) reported

    @JasonSprenger @wordpressdotcom They can't help u b/c u r not their customer. U r using self-hosted WordPress hosted by Hostgator. It's completely different from @wordpressdotcom - the name is similar, but they are separate entities. @wordpress doesnt provide support because everyone volunteers, no staff.

  • ethicaladitya Aditya Shah (@ethicaladitya) reported

    @Sachin_artani @HostingerCOM @IDHostinger @hostinger Omg. choose a better hosting next time brother. Go for WPMUDEV hosting or maybe chaper like hostgator bluehost etc they are far better with better support

    @HGSupport hi there, can't seem to be able to get through to your chat service - got a question regarding my account and renewal.

  • DaveMathF DaveMA (@DaveMathF) reported

    @SharonMauve Definitely NOT Hostgator as they are EIG owned and Godaddy has been going down also. Their support and service has declined considerably.

    My consultant at HostGator helped so I could sign onto my website. I don't know what happened since even their experts couldn't sign in. Finally a super super expert squared it away. Hallelujah!

    Two days ago I bought a domain in @HostGator and its control panel doesn't work, and they don't answer me in technical support @hgsupport #badservice

  • Quantocracy Quantocracy (@Quantocracy) reported

    @HGSupport I'll standby...again. Let's hope @HostGator can finally push this over the finish line. This has been hands down the hardest I've ever worked for $268.50.

  • Quantocracy Quantocracy (@Quantocracy) reported

    @HGSupport That would have been a great answer 2 months ago. Not so great after this 2 month comedy of errors from @hostgator. I've already done the waiting as originally requested. It's time to issue the

  • Quantocracy Quantocracy (@Quantocracy) reported

    @HGSupport If u require personal info, plz email/DM me, otherwise I would prefer to communicate status publicly. I've spent 2 months doing it the "right way" with your customer service team and watched them repeatedly drop the ball. Please issue the promised refund and let's get this done.

  • maythefroth Dumb Summon Froth (@maythefroth) reported

    @Quantocracy @HostGator @HGSupport Whatever you do, please do not migrate to bluehost. Terrible experience. They bugged my websites with malware in a bid to sell security plans. I am with @kinsta now.

  • yourblogmentor Rahul Choudhary | Your Blog Mentor (@yourblogmentor) reported

    @ADayWithShea I recently switched from hostgator to siteground. They migrated my site without any issue. It was totally worth it. (I got the plan at a huge discount 🤩😆)

  • chrisro Chris Roberts (@chrisro) reported

    @EthaanJack It's really a shame. I've been with Hostgator for 12 years. The last 3 or 4 have been awful. Their service and support used to be top notch.

  • pedrogarram Pedro Ramos (@pedrogarram) reported

    @8T3 @GoDaddy I was with Hostgator for a couple of years without a problem before I migrated to Squarespace. Check them out.

  • stevefeasey Steve Feasey⚔ (@stevefeasey) reported

    @HGSupport I owe @hgsupport #hostgator a BIG apology. THEIR customer service DOES gove a damn, and responded to my tweet. They are not to blame. I have a rotten cold at the moment, and blame my error on that. Sorry Hostgator,. I shall be outing the real villain later instead.

  • theAngusT Angus Thomson (@theAngusT) reported

    @stevefeasey @HGSupport That’s poor form indeed Steve. Appalling actually

  • chrisro Chris Roberts (@chrisro) reported

    @HGSupport Honestly this is ridiculous. I'm aware that your policy is to not issue courtesy refunds when you break my service - this isn't the first time. I'm not really sure there's anything you can do for me at this point, because a refund for at least this month's service is all I'd want

    @la_elements @HGSupport Their real name is Endurance International Group, they are the worst hosting company. You should read the wikipedia article about them, to see their list of brand names they hide behind. If you like, I can recommend a more legitimate hosting provider.
