GODADDY Shut Down By Anonymous
« on: September 10, 2012, 03:55:19 PM »
Thought I would share the news with you guys about Godaddy!  It appears they have been hacked!  No sites hosted by them are up, and email accounts are dead in the water.

I guess go-daddy doen't like the fact the i'm moving 200+ domains registered with them to a new registar, i've been contemplating this move for a while..


Dear Robert Krausankas,

We owe you a big apology for the intermittent service outages we experienced on September 10 that may have impacted your website, your email and other Go Daddy services.

We let you down and we know it. We take our responsibilities — and the trust you place in us — very seriously. I cannot express how sorry I am to those of you who were inconvenienced.

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 a series of immediate measures to fix the problem.

At no time was any sensitive customer information, including credit card data, passwords or names and addresses, compromised.

Throughout our history, we have provided 99.999% uptime in our DNS infrastructure. This is the level of performance we expect from ourselves. Monday, we fell short of these expectations. We have learned from this event and will use it to drive improvement in our services.

It's an honor to serve you. As always, please call us 24/7 at 480-505-8877 — anytime, for any reason.


ummm no thanks I won't be "calling" unless you jack me around while I do all of these transfers..

Which company are you moving your domains to, Robert, if I may be so bold to ask? No problem if you don't care to answer this. I'm just being nosy!

Apparently, the outage wasn't because of a "hack":

http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-57510432-83/go-daddy-sorry-about-the-outage-and-no-it-wasnt-a-hack/

S.G.

It's very comforting to hear that the total meltdown was purely the result of GoDaddy's technical incompetence and not the technical competence of an anonymous hacker.

They gave one of my clients a free month of hosting for an afternoon of outage time. That's not a terrible deal for a low-traffic website. I actually do have some respect for the gesture because that's putting their money where their mouth is. However, a month of GoDaddy hosting is less than 10 bucks. I guess it amounts to something if they offer it to millions of people, but some individual businesses could have lost thousands of dollars in an 8-hour outage during business hours.

Have any of you been offered this deal, or heard of the offer from someone? They sent my client an email with a credit they could apply to their account online.

I bet Matt moves this thread to another forum — I'm surprised it survived this many bumps!

I don't do any hosting with them, just registrations, but they did offer my a 25% discount on my next order...of which there will be none..what really got me thinking about the move was the video of Parsons shooting the elephant..and not with a camera..
