Just a quick post to give folks a head’s up. If you have a website and your web host is Hostgator, check to see if your site is loading. Both of my sites went down for a number of hours today and just came back up. Apparently, HG was migrating to new servers and there have been issues all week. Folks have been without email, e-commerce, sites loading, etc. Worse, there was little to no communication of the problem from HG to its customers, myself included.
That’s bad enough. Worse, my page widgets were, well, wonky when the site came back up. Who knows what will happen next.
So if you have a site hosted by Hostgator, check it now. Keep a close eye on it for the next few days.
This concludes your public service announcement.
