Website offline

Postby Davide » Tue Sep 11, 2012 5:33 am

Yesterday, the largest provider of internet web hosting and services,, suffered a global outage for several hours taking offline, apparently, every website which uses their infrastructure. Millions of websites around the world remained offline for hours, including, which uses Godaddy DNS servers but is hosted by a third-party company.

The realtime as blogged yesterday:

18:32, September 10, UTC is not responding.
The server and the website are reachable by IP, but the DNS is not resolving (godaddy service).
I called support center of Milan and USA, but both telephone networks are busy (GSM error "network busy").
I guess this is being a big problem and I'm not the only one involved.

There are millions of websites down around the world at the moment, all caused by Godaddy outage.
Indeed, I've been confirmed that their telephones are overloaded.
