Asked over 1 year ago - Clifton, TX

My i net hosting company moved my sites to another (server) changing ip's in which I had for several years now they do not work. They notified me the were happy to announce They were updating hardware on Aug. 28th 2013 and would notify me when it was done . They did NOT notify me and I contacted them about on Sept. 11th 2013 .After many e mails with them apologizing in each one about their screw up they now say I will have to pay them at least 75.00 to get my sites working when they were working FLAWLESSLY before their so called MIGRATION !!!!
Their MIGRATION has caused me MIGRAINS . What legal action can I take against them if any to make them put my sites back as they were on Aug 28 ? Thanks in advance for your replies.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Whether you have a case against Host Gator will depend on your contract with them. I doubt it promises not to change IP's.

    You have a $75 problem and you are looking for a legal answer that will cost you thousands of dollars. While I believe you should not have to pay for their migration flaws; it is important to you to be up and running. Pay the $75 and move on with your business.
