04 Jun #HostGator: How do I point my existing domain to HostGator?
Horrible experience, horrible company – After cancelling our website because it crashed and they (#hostgator) told myself and my business partner that since they didn’t work with that site-builder anymore, they couldn’t fix it but would gladly sell me something else… five days before a huge sale, with thousands of potential customers. I had never experienced more unprofessional, snotty, snarky people in my life. We cancelled and moved our website, having to rebuild and change ALL our contact information, then three months later, they charged our C.C. again! And refused to refund the money for website that didn’t even exist! I was stunned! Now we’re going into the land of theft and stealing! WORST hosting company ever. Don’t just walk, RUN from #hostgator. We had to even tear up our C.C. to keep them from stealing more. Please, DO NOT give them any information! Unhappy Customer, United States
