Host Gator Versus WordPress: here we go again.

Went in my CP by sheer luck and found this cute message:

host gator

Something did apparently happen at 4 am while I was all tucked in bed. You’d think that an email or a phone call would be issued as they have done in the past, but I got bupkis.

And this happened just now, not 5 minutes after I clipped the above image:

host gator 2

Hopefully this will not disturb normal operations much because trying to get help this time of the year is, shall we say, challenging.


Be back soon.

  1. If you’re using hostgator, download and install Wordfence immediately! I’ve found files and plugins I never installed and Wordfence will help you keep clean. It checks against the wordpress repository and when things get changed on your site (via hostgator) it’ll warn you and will fix it for you pretty easily.

    Plus it’s fun to watch people from Ukraine get denied when they try and hack your site. If you need any wordpress help, let me know. I enjoy the site.


  2. It sounds like a script hung at some point. Probably someone trying to do something that would potentially cause problems. It happens every now and then and unless you are on a dedicated server it can cause issues with the host.

    I am in the same boat and can’t wait to see google fiber expand to my area (I am in one of the potential ones). Once it does I will be building out a server of my own and self hosting everything.
