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.)
