Turns out Bluehost, however, wasn’t the only web host experiencing the resulting downtime. Other providers, all operating under Endurance International, included HostGator, JustHost and HostMonster.
Endurance International discussed the issue via its website (Enduranceresponse.com), stating, “The problem occurred during routine server maintenance when a hardware failure quickly cascaded throughout the network. Our customer service teams, technicians, and engineers responded immediately. Throughout the day we attempted to publicly communicate as openly and frequently as possible.”
The web hosts operate their networks through a data center in Provo, Utah.
