Apparently there is a power outage in Utah, USA where the servers are located.

Come on Bluehost, hot wire it, lol.

Interesting that a power outage would knock them offline considering they supposedly have UPS and diesel generator power backup. Something smells fishy. ;)

Edit: It’s funny when people complain of outages and problems with service providers like these, meanwhile my recommendations have yet to disappoint. :P

From what I’ve read, they only went down for about an hour and some sites are still having issues.

Hmm, I guess some servers got back online faster and I’m a lucky bastard, because they went down now, when it’s past midnight here :D

Yea it would have had to have been something much more then a power outage. BlueHost has two 50,000 gallon diesel backup generators so the only power outage that would cause those to fail would be like an EMP blast 8)

Every site that used MediaTemple’s DNS was down yesterday as well, pretty bad on their part, glad I stopped using them, their grid service is by far the worst hosting I’ve ever used.

If there was a power outage… Could it be possible that their ISP or Internet connection had trouble too? :) If so then that kinds of make their backup supply redundant… Doesn’t it?
