More Downtime at HostGator & Bluehost

This year doesn’t seem to be going well for EIG brands Hostgator and Bluehost who are experiencing yet another outage following the April 16th outage, and their New Years Eve one. HostGator first began reporting the outage on their forum at 2:40 a.m. As of 1:22PM EST Bluehost tweeted that “traffic is back to normal & services restored. We’re still monitoring & reinforcing our network”. HostGator’s last update came at 10:40AM on their forums stating they are still working on restoring all services.

According to the Bluehost sitethe HostGator forum, twitter support feeds and twitter users, the service has been down for somewhere around 10+ hours. According to a recent update from the EIG media contact the outage is now only affecting a small portion of its customer base. It’s unclear how many sites were affected throughout the network interruption as a whole.

UPDATE 5/20/2014 10:55AM EST: So it seems that both Bluehost and HostGator are reporting the outage to be fully fixed; however the Bluehost support channel on twitter is still filled with customers having issues accessing their sites following this recent outage. While some of these current issues might have nothing to do with the outage – I just wanted to keep everyone up-to-date.
