goDaddy

After a whole bunch of 'page not found' messages in a row, I realized:

GoDaddy, the domain registrar and Web hosting company, is down, perhaps taking millions of websites down as a result.
"Status Alert: Hey, all. We're aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We're working on it," @GoDaddy tweeted Monday.

A quick call to the company's customer service line resulted in this voice message:

"If you are having a problem with your email, we are aware of the problem."

TechCrunch reports that GoDaddy email addresses are down, as well. The blog suggests customers concerned with that their site has been affected can check online status at Down For Everyone Or Just Me.

Twitter accounts claiming to be associated with the hacking group Anonymous claimed responsibility for the attack.

"Basically, every GoDaddy site on the planet just crashed," @TibitXimer tweeted. [CBS]

Damn

I somewhat doubt Anonymous's claim, but it's still frustrating.

Don't use GoDaddy for hosting, but I use their name servers. My MX records are now failing. Fuckers!

I am switching to hostgator.They give first 6 months free on new hosting accounts. Annual or longer billing cycles are currently 50% off and are offering domain registrations for 50% off currently! Use coupon code 'godaddyisdown'. Yes - it is a little bit dirty from them, but... we'll see.

Here is the link for the promotion --> goo.gl/C9daZ

Bad PR in my oppinion. They are effecting small biz and making no valid point.
"If you have to force people to join your cause, you need to rethink your cause"- S. M.
They are as bad as the people they fight against. Too many geeks with too much time on your hands.
Get off your computer and go help your neighbour if you want to make a positive change.
