GoDaddy Outage on Wednesday is reporting that GoDaddy experienced a Denial-of-Service (DOS) attack on yesterday.

We personally experienced that many of our domain names registered with GoDaddy were not operating and called them to find out what was going on within the midday.

The rep said that the domains were indeed accessible within other parts of the country and even told me to use a previously unheard of company and service (which was indeed cool) named MegaProxy to see what would happen when using the domain names elsewhere.

Now that the truth has come out, I wonder what GoDaddy will do the next time around.

The moral for any company is to tell your customers the truth or risk losing any previous goodwill that you had worked feverishly to obtain!
