Website offline

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

Yesterday, the largest provider of internet web hosting and services, Godaddy.com, 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 freeciv-mundi.org, which uses Godaddy DNS servers but is hosted by a third-party company.


The realtime as blogged yesterday:

18:32, September 10, UTC

Freeciv-mundi.org 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.

UPDATE:

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.
