If you don't know who GoDaddy is, then the good news is you were most likely not affected by this disastrous turn of events. If you are one of the millions of people who use GoDaddy’s services, you may have noticed some slight technical difficulties today. Namely not being able to access your site or your email. The administrators of the largest name registrar on the Internet have confirmed that they are suffering from technical issues, but are not giving any details as to what those issues are. Although GoDaddy is not talking, a supposed member of the Anonymous hacktivism collective is taking credit for the attack stating on Twitter that the reason for the attack is to test how the cyber security is safe.
The latest update from GoDaddy was a Tweet at 4pm Eastern Standard Time saying “ Update: Still working on it, but we’re making progress. Some service has already been restored. Stick with us.”
We understand that many of our clients utilize Go Daddy’s services and we are available to answer any questions you may have about the issues plaguing the GoDaddy servers.
