Pissing me off as I have three domains hosted by Godaddy. Had just sent out a mass email with a link to a page on one of them minutes before Godaddy went down.

Nothing I swear!



It was up briefly maybe 20 minutes ago, then gone again.

I don't really care about one of the three sites but the other two have a LOT going on today -- grrr....

Oh, that's annoying.

I have 3 hosted sites and they're all up. I wasn't able to get into WordPress through 'em and of course not into GoDaddy itself. That's a pain in the patoot.

Yesterday, GoDaddy.com and many of our customers experienced intermittent service outages starting shortly after 10 a.m. PDT. Service was fully restored by 4 p.m. PDT.

The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a "hack" and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS). We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.

Anonymous takes credit for massive Go Daddy outage
The Web hosting service Go Daddy is down – and 'hacktivist' group Anonymous is taking responsibility.
For the time being, the Web hosting giant Go Daddy isn't going anywhere. (Sorry – we couldn't resist.)

@Walter Hinteler,
I appreciate their admission, but I'm not sure it helps their image.

Anyone can be the victim of a denial-of-service attack, and anyone can make a mistake, but big hosting operations like GoDaddy are supposed to have controls in place to prevent this kind of thing.
