2 hour Hostgator Black Friday Sale - 75% off ALL hosting and $2 domains 7pm TONIGHT

It's for 2 hours only, and this is their best deal of the year!

From 7pm to 9pm tonight, you can get 75% off all hosting packages by visiting here.

On Monday they will have another sale for 60% off, which is also good, but they never sell them as cheap as they will for the next 2 hours.

You seem to be profiting from referrals. I think you need to talk to RS to get a vendors account.

Guess we missed it, it was at 10am until 11am

Maybe keep checking, they seem to be turning the big sale on for an hour at a time throughout the weekend. TBH 60% is a pretty good deal anyway

Hey guys thanks for your support. Hostgator is having problems keeping track of sales during this promo, and sometimes we don't get credit for it. If you bought one and I haven't bugged you about it on PM, can you please pm me?

Thanks

I'm moving my business off of Hostgator because their uptime is shit.

2 years into a 3 year prepaid deal and in about one third of the one month measurement periods, they don't meet their 99.9% uptime target; usually 99.4-99.5%.

This doesn't seem like much but that can add up to 3 hours where online sales can't be made, emails aren't delivered, our technical library isn't available... and it's not like I have control over it.

We just get error 500s because of other users on the same shared server not playing nice.

I'm moving to A Small Orange VPS.

I've had a site on HostGator, and the experience has been opposite. 100% uptime for 3 years. If your site goes down it's probably due to a misconfiguration issue on your part. If it's a 500 error, this is definitely the case.

True 100% uptime? Do you monitor with pingdom or is it anecdotal?

The only improvements I could make are to concat my css files from 8 down into one. But that's because I'm just a little lazy. It's affecting site load times just a tiny but according to webpagetest.org. If my visitors are taking down my site with just a handful too many calls, dafuq is wrong with Hostgator.


EDIT: anecdotally on my end, problems did start at about the time HG moved me from gator145 to gator4064. This actually could show that something I have is poorly optimized and gator145 was a good quick server with great neighbours and now that I'm on gator4064, the same site's problems which were masked by the performance of the previous server are now apparent in a less ideal environment. Just a thought.

I do monitor with pingdom. Any downtime has been my own fault messing with things

Is RS on Host Gator? because they got unlimited bandwith and disk space for only $3.95 a month.

Spoiler!

We could host with their dedicated servers, but it would be about the same as what we pay now
