For the last couple of weeks Ive been having issues with sites Ive created on hostgator taking ages to load. Its quite random. I can be viewing all the pages fine then it'll take 10+ secs to view the next page or it'll just say its loading until I do a refresh. Its particularly bad when Im trying to change the sites in question (all are running wordpress). I have tried editing from another internet connection (world exchange) and that worked fine - no timeouts, no real problems. I logged in remotely to a friends computer last night as shes going to be an admin on one of the sites and she was having the exact same problems as Im having, if not worse. The only thing in common is we're both using Telecom as our ISP.
Ive been on contact with hostgator and they cannot find anything wrong at their end. They requested a tracert which I promptly gave them and they have come back to me saying the following:
I attempted to do a traceroute back to your IP address and we seem to be having almost 100% packet loss on this hop : mdr-fid-int.akbr5.global-gateway.net.nz
The registrant contact name is being listed as: Telecom IP Limited
Im not too sure where to go from here to see if I can get it resolved. Its refinately a recent thing as opposed to a long, ongoing thing. I really started noticing it around 10 days ago.
