Is your website currently hosted by GoDaddy? GoDaddy, host of thousands of sites and one of the largest web hosts, is currently experiencing a major server outage. The DNS servers are currently down. What does this mean for your site? According to Mashable.com, if you have a domain registered with Godaddy that uses its nameservers and DNS records, your site will not be accessible during this outage. Any email accounts with GoDaddy will be temporarily down as well.
The Anonymous hacktivist group have openly admitted to have taken down the GoDaaddy site with, according to the The Next Web, a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS). See tweet below.
Fortunately, GoDaddy is aware of the error and is working on it. If you notice that your site is down this afternoon, please be patient as they fix the problem.
