The server is completely offline right now and I cannot login to it at all. 
They is Hostgator. I don't even know where to begin with finding the root cause.

Have you analyzed why your system is not booting? Who is "they"?

Monit shouldn't prevent the system from boot. Regardless of whether  
you configured it via inittab or init.d script, if the service fails,  
the system is able to resume normally. The root cause seems to be  
outside of monit, most probably configuration issue. The OS reinstall  
is overkill from my point of view - you should find the root cause.

You didn't provided any details on your system. What system it is,  
how is monit installed, configured and started, provide all relevant  
system logs. Provide the console output up to the system freeze.


P.S. Did you tried the single user mode to recover the system?
