Why Bluehost, HostMonster, HostGator Down?

If you host your website on Bluehost, HostMonster, HostGator or JustHost, your site is probably down or experiencing issues.

The three hosting brands are all divisions of Endurance International Group. The outage appears to be related to server maintenance at the Provo, Utah, data center.

According to the Bluehost and HostMonster Twitter accounts, that maintenance caused additional problems.
Although HostGator and Bluehost (two brands that used to operate under the same company) do not have a dedicated page setup for system status, HostGator has created a forum thread providing information on the system outage.
Bluehost and HostMonster report that their phones are overloaded with calls and that the company is doing everything it can to get its sites back online.
