GoDaddy powered services went down big time last night. There were reports that the company was attacked by a group of hackers.
GoDaddy has released a statement blaming internal issues for the problems. They said:
The service outage was not caused by external influences. 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. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.
The company added that no customer data was compromised.
