BlueHost, HostMonster, and JustHost Down (11/25/2015)

We are seeing a lot of people complaining about BlueHost, HostMonster, and JustHost being down right now. It doesn't seem to affecting other brands I checked (HostGator, iPage, A Small Orange, Arvixe, Site5).

It is very strange that HostGator isn't down this time. Their last major outage in 2013 affected all four of those brands (source: mashable). I am wondering if their infrastructure has been separated meaningfully between HostGator and the other three.

I've heard rumors of a DDoS attack from people saying that's what support told them. No official confirmation.

If you're considering changing web hosts, we track and publish what people think of most major webhosting companies here.

It's gotten to the point people are making memes. Not good.
