Unable to connect HostGator
 
Hi all,

I don't know whether here is the right forum for my question.

Recently, I purchase the Business Plan, Shared Hosting, from HostGator. At the beginning, there was no problem connecting them regarding Transfer of my WP websites, all on cPanel, from my old hosting company to them. Suddenly I lost connect with them for more than 15 hours. Connecting their live-chat on;
https://www.hostgator.com/

click "Sign In" -> Portal (Head to the customer dashboard)
hanging there for prolonged time and finally showing;
Code:

The connection has timed out
click "Live Chat"
Code:

404: Page not found.
Please help. Thanks

Regards

This is LinuxQuestions, not HostGator support desk.

Live chat is only one of the three contact methods they offer; try the other two: https://www.hostgator.com/contact

Hi folks,

Thanks for your advice.

Their server has been download for more than 15hrs. It is alive now with login page popup and on clicking "Live Chat" it works. Before I have tried more than 1 hr in 2 occasions with no luck.

I couldn't login their discussion forum;
https://forums.hostgator.com/

always saying password incorrect. Click the "Live Chat" there popup;
Code:

Not Found

The requested URL /liveperson/index.shtml was not found on this server.

Request for reset "password". The advising email never came.

It is still in this situation.

Then I don't know what to do and tried here. Sorry for that.

Now on browse runs;
https://portal.hostgator.com/

The login page popup and I can login my cPanel

Also on;
https://www.hostgator.com/
-> Support -> Live Chat

They are working now.

Just contacted Live Chat of HostGator and our dialogue is as follow in brief

HostGator agent
Code:

We are not down This can be due to IP issue
