Alert- GoDaddy Down

Having trouble getting to your website? Or a few different websites? That’s because the popular web hosting provider GoDaddy, is currently down, taking down millions of sites with them.

According to this article, GoDaddy has sent out social media alerts that they are aware of the issue and are currently working to fix it. It also looks like the problems may be caused by a group of hackers, although that has yet to be confirmed by GoDaddy.

We will continue to update this blog article as soon as we have any more information.


The internet hacker group known as Anonymous has taken credit for the attack on GoDaddy. It can affect anything reliant on GoDaddy SSL Certificates such as: eCommerce sites, Exchange Servers, etc.

If you are experiencing issues with websites, email, or anything that may require an SSL Certificate, it is likely due to this attack.

UPDATE September 11, 2012, 8:00 AM EST

According to an update from GoDaddy, the issue was resolved as of yesterday at 6:41 PM. If you are still experiencing issues please let us know, we’ll be happy to look into it!
