What is Web Hosting? – HostGator Hosted

Very Unreliable!! very bad customer service – I agree with all the one star review. This company is so bad stay away. I did a mistake and hosted my business with them. My website is my income so if anything happens to my website then I’m losing money. I’m a computer engineer and I know how to work with servers, hosting, network, etc so I do almost everything by myself. Recently I needed their help with a very simple issue that has to be done by them. It’s something I can’t do. They have to do it for me. And I know for a fact that this is something shouldn’t take 5 more than minutes. So far 7 tickets, 3 phone calls, and 4 time with chat. My website still down. So far I have lost a little over $250. I’m on hold now on the phone. 47 minutes on hold so far and still holding. If you have a website for personal use then they may be OK option but if you run a business then stay far away.
