These reviews are unreal

I am a current HostGator customer and can speak about the company on an unemotional, rational level. I have been with them for eight years and it is true, just about everything has seemed to go downhill since being acquired by EIG. That said, there seems to be an even steeper decline lately than the original decline. At the least, this company is guilty of deceptive business practices, grossly false advertising, grave incompetence, unacceptable customer "service", condescension, and fraud. There are thousands of terrible reviews about HG posted throughout the web, some of which are answered by their "spokesperson" who has the writing skills and vocabulary of a fifth grader. For me as a dedicated server customer, the service has been adequate and when there has been a problem I have found that it has been taken care of appropriately. That said, I have been absolutely appalled at the sheer number of passionately, horrific reviews written about HG and

Extremely dissatisfied customer

I was set up by hostgator with two domains/dsn addresses when I initially started my service with them (not by choice it was a glitch in their system). Since then I have had my websites become suspended 4 times in less than 6 months because each time I call them they inform me that the the canceled (extra- or mistake that Hostgator created when I initially joined them) was causing issues with the active package. Each time they inform me it will be corrected and now after the 4th time of this happening, I have been hung up on 4 times, wasted over 2 hours on the phone and told that I have to fix the problem and that there is nothing that they can do or will do to keep me as a satisfied customer...Their customer service is horrible, I will not recommend their service to anyone!

Horrible, clueless Customer Service

Their customer service is a nightmare, they are arrogant, outspoken, and lazy. You wait for one hour minimum for them to pick up. And then they "accidentally" hang up on you. They have no idea about anything on server or portal. And the worst is they try to use high pitched voice to enforce you to go and find your own solution. They disable services which I paid for for not apparent reason . And they never know why.

THINKING ABOUT HOSTGATOR - THINK TWICE

A company can be in business many years, but it doesn't make them the best or good in providing a service. What matter is customer service and having products or services that's reliable, worthy of an investment by Clients. I had major issues with SiteLock and Hostgator services. I am not the mad customers who wants to leave a review to bad mouth the company. I am a genuine loyal customer who was disappointed and dissatisfied after giving Hostgator and Sitelock the opportunity to redeem themselves after I requested their hosting services and protection from HACKERS! I was told by SiteLock their services could take up to 24 hours the most depending on how severe it was HACKED. Four days later nothing on the google search engine, dashboard which I was locked out of, or sites changed when you entered in the navigation bar. When I called the trained staff could not help me and now I feel hopeless after signing a contract and my account being drafted to date. I am paying for a service I did

Your website maybe HACKED! BEWARE! It happened to me

Published 62 seconds ago Account HACKED after speaking with TECH SUPPORT! STOP BEWARE! The loading page was slow. I called Hostgator Tech support. They gave me the solution so I thought, but asked me some really suspicious questions because my website had NO ISSUES and I was not calling for SiteLock protection, I was not calling about my website being HACKED, I was not calling about being locked out of my dashboard and cpanel for days, I was not calling about my website being redirected to a PORN site, but All of this happend after I spoke to a Host gator tech about two weeks ago. My gut said something isnt right. Then when I was forced/had no choice I purchased the $49.99 package for 6 months which auto renew. I was never told about the one time offer until I asked because I did not want to go under a contract. Everytime I speak with a tech or sale and tell them something is fine, thats the next thing that goes hacked!
