GoDaddy's DNS Servers Go Down, Taking Thousands of Sites With It
« on: September 10, 2012, 03:24:00 PM »
OUCH!!

GoDaddy, the world's largest domain registrar and one of the biggest web hosts, is experiencing major downtime.
The main GoDaddy.com domain is unreachable and websites hosted by GoDaddy are also down. The more problematic part is that any domain registered with GoDaddy that uses its nameservers and DNS records are also down. That means that even if you host your site elsewhere, using GoDaddy for DNS means it is inaccessible.

I do have one domain hosted at GoDaddy but it's forwarded elsewhere...guess I should check on it.

Hmmmm.
Of course that's their statement.
They don't want their customers knowing that they were hacked.
Right?

I just got an email apologizing for their service interruption and offering a discount    :?   My site wasn't down, I only registered my .com with them, don't use their email but hey...a discount is a discount, right?

Code: [Select]

Dear Kim Leger,

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.

As a result of this disruption, you will receive 30% off any new product or renewal.* This offer will be available to you for the next 7 days. Simply place source code Apology4a in your cart or mention the code when you call 480-505-8877.

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

Sincerely,

Scott Wagner
CEO
GoDaddy.com

Yep.
I have a domain there, not hosted, nor do I use their email...I wonder why I didn't get the email.
