GoDaddy outage makes websites unavailable for many Internet users
GoDaddy, one of the Internet's biggest webhosting providers, experienced technical difficulties on Monday that prevented many people from visiting sites that relied on the service for connectivity.
A little after 5 p.m. California time on Monday, company officials took to Twitter to say the outage was mostly resolved.
"Most customer hosted sites back online," the dispatch stated. "We're working out the last few kinks for our site & control centers. No customer data compromised." Searches using the dig utility also indicated domain name system servers operated by GoDaddy competitor VeriSign were being used to resolve the godaddy.com domain name. Wired reported VeriSign was hosting GoDaddy's DNS servers, too, although Ars couldn't independently verify that.
