HostGator VPS and Dedicated Server – Datacenter Migration

In an effort to improve uptime and stability, we are upgrading our VPS and Dedicated web hosting servers' hardware by migrating accounts to a new datacenter starting in mid-August 2022. If you are a VPS or Dedicated hosting account owner, we've sent an email to the account's primary email address providing the migration date for your server.

The following are answers to common questions you may have about this server migration.

When will the upgrade happen?

The scheduled maintenance will begin in mid-August 2022. During this time, your server may experience intermittent downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Make sure to check your email to find the specific day your server will be migrating to the new datacenter.

Will there be any downtime?

While we migrate your server to the new datacenter, we expect there to be downtime for your website(s) and email, as well as an inability to access your server.

We assure you that every effort is being made to minimize any impact on your site(s) and ensure that your environment is restored to normal operation as soon as possible.

Where can I view the status of my server upgrade?

If you are interested in monitoring the status of the datacenter migration, please go to our forum. Our team will be posting updates and information specific to the migration.

Please contact our support team via HostGator Chat if you have any questions.
