Pingdom results Hostgator

Any thoughts on good or bad here? This is an entire year tracked via for my hostgator account. It shows a total downtime in a year of 4 hours and 6 minutes - 99.95% uptime.

If it's actually legitimate, that's very good uptime.

How often is your pingdom set to test the site? Something seems off, as when Hostgator moved everybody to the EIG datacenter in Provo, UT (without telling anyone), the minimum downtime for anyone, as far as I am aware, was about 10 hours. That's coming from Hostgator themselves, and their own figures. Some people were down for days.

Do you use CloudFlare or anything?

I just recently - 4 days ago started using the "free" version of Cloudflare Hostgator offers, that would not have effected these statistics.
