GoDaddy: hundreds of thousands of web site crippled

Posted by iwgcr

On Thuesday September 12, GoDaddy, the hosting company (more than 5 million websites) and domain registrar, has been  struggling or down since 10 a.m. PT to 4 p.m. PDT taking hundreds of sites offline.

At first, a DDoS attack was considered, however, after Scott Wagner (GoDaddy interim CEO) says:

It was not a “hack” and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS). We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables.
