Bluehost hosting services & email down and not working for many, issue acknowledged

Bluehost is a company that offers web and email hosting services. It is part of the Endurance International Group and is among the 20 largest web hosts in the world.

Millions of websites globally trust Bluehost services. So, a crash in the Bluehost servers can put a large part of the global internet in trouble.

That said, for a few days the Bluehost hosting and email services have been down and not working (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13).

Bluehost hosting and email services currently down

Reports on the issue have been surfacing on social platforms like Twitter throughout the last weekend.

Currently, many sites that depend on Bluehost hosting services are completely inaccessible. The situation is causing serious issues for both users and website owners.

@bluehostsupport Can y’all please make a public tweet about the nature of the issue that’s affecting nearly every aspect of Bluehost’s services this weekend? Acknowledging it exists isn’t enough. Why is it affecting cPanel AND account servers AND internal tools?

still waiting for @bluehostsupport to even acknowledge that their servers have been down for hours today. @bluehost are you going to tell us what is going on????

The crash in Bluehost services also affects emails. Apparently, website owners are receiving emails through the platform intermittently or with a lot of delay.

Also, other users are completely unable to access the platform from which they can manage emails.

Bluehost email up and down for the whole weekend?

Hey, anyone else experiencing this? Seems that I’m getting email intermittently for the last 2 or 3 days. Tried calling support but there’s an hour + wait and when I try to access from cpanel, the pages time out.

Status pages seem non existent and chat seems to be shut off, so…I’m guessing they’re likely being hit by something pretty hard.
