GoDaddy Says Service Restored After Web Outage

USAToday: Following an attack that knocked its Web hosting services offline for much of Monday, GoDaddy is now back online. Hackers associated with the hacktivist group Anonymous have claimed credit for the outage, but their participation has not been confirmed. “By using/supporting GoDaddy, you are supporting censorship of the Internet,” read one Tweet from an Anonymous-related account.

GoDaddy hosts more than 5 million sites, many of them owned by small businesses, which were unable to do business during the outage. “I’m definitely one for upsetting the establishment in some cases, and I understand that if (the hacker is) going after GoDaddy, he may have had many reasons for doing that,” said small business owner and GoDaddy customer Kenneth Borg. “But I don’t think he realized that he was affecting so many small businesses.”
