16 Dec How To Transfer A WordPress WebSite To Hostgator Or A New Host
Emails don’t work – I’m just an ordinary user and found that my emails were getting kicked back by spam filters. It’s taken me months to figure out what’s going on, I thought my email was hacked or there was a mistake, but turned out its #hostgator. This has been happening since December, it’s now February, apparently they’re awarded of the problem but haven’t fixed it. Their attitude is lackadaisical and I’ve no idea what I’m paying them for.
