Vlog 19? Hostgator Sucks and Why I No Longer Recommend Them


Worst Ever – Great job in building a company that is horrible in every way. Want 20 minute waits to talk to someone? Want bad technical support? Want wrong information that causes you to lose email ability and websites to go down for days. They got you covered!


Little rant of the last episode that has lead me to the conclusion that Hostagtor sucks. Moving on now 🙂

    That stinks. I use host gator too. Hope you get it all back up and moved over.

    Thanks for the heads up. I've been hosting with Hostgator for 8 years too and recently haven't had to ask for assistance often. They clearly state they are backing up, so it would be reasonable to expect that they could do a restore when needed. However, I do push from a local setup so the content and posts could be restored easily. Still, it would be new database entries/changes, uploaded files and email since the last transfer to local machines that  could still potentially be lost.

    Hostgator is the worst hosting company evrt, they don't even reply the support tickets.

    I should have never switched from GoDaddy. I read multiple good reviews about hostgator and thought I did enough research before switching.

    I feel your pain to a lesser extent. I have 4 tickets "On Hold" with hostgator which seems to be the norm. Two of these tickets are from 7DEC2016, 1 from 20DEC2016, and the other I just opened yesterday, 18JAN2017. There has been no activity since they were opened. Absolutely no folllow-through from them. I ALWAYS have to hold if I call and their livechat is perhaps worse.

    Weebly was recently recommended by a friend. Any input would be appreciated. I primarily use Linux but have a dual boot with Windows 7.
