HostGator has had several network outages since its original owner sold it to Endurance International Group (EIG) back in June 2012.
The latest HostGator server outage was in December 2016. With the yearly outages plaguing its network since 2012, we wonder when the next HostGator outage may be.
Since we haven’t heard from the company what steps they’re taking to prevent similar network outages from happening again in the future, we can only surmise that they have taken care of the problem internally.
One other concern that some have raised about HostGator is its worsening customer support, which again came about after its acquisition by EIG.
If you are wary of HostGator in light of the network outages and/or worsening customer support, or if you’re looking for more reliable hosting, you might want to look at other providers with more stellar records in network uptime as well as customer support.
