This one is a bit surprising as I had always expected GoDaddy’s infrastructure to be rather secure and stable for the amount of websites they host. However, according to a few of my own clients, an update on GoDaddy’s twitter, and a post on TechCrunch – GoDaddy is down. This goes for both their hosted clients, as-well as the main GoDaddy.com website.
UPDATE: So as of roughly 14 hours ago GoDaddy has made the following update on their Twitter:
Most customer hosted sites back online. We’re working out the last few kinks for our site & control centers. No customer data compromised.
If you’re curious as to what exactly happened – we’re really not sure yet. We do know that GoDaddy’s DNS servers went down – however why they went down, and whether or not anyone from Anonymous was actually behind it.
