Server Down for Millions of Users

Bluehost server down - outage Dec 2016For quite a while now, I’m personally not anymore convinced with Bluehost web hosting. Too much has gone wrong and live support takes ages on waiting time. But today they topped it all! At 4am this morning, our client’s websites went down. No email notification, no explanation from Bluehost. Trying to log in to the hosting account reveals many different error messages, but doesn’t give access to files and databases. At the time of writing, 6:30pm, we still can’t access any website or Bluehost account.

Non EIG Web Hosting

Too Much is Too Much – Time for a Change!

Bluehost Down - Server OutageThis is just too much! We will move our own and our client websites far away from Bluehost and any other EIG web hosting account.

Many of our clients are in the middle of their booking season, with high season only two weeks away. The amount of financial losses for these companies is not acceptable! Therefore we say good bye to a web hosting server that ones was among the most reliable ones and also the cheapest ones.
