Have trouble getting to the Web at an Elauwit property? Go Daddy says the problem is fixed
For many people across the country, yesterday was a frustrating day to browse the Web. Visitor after visitor searching for their news, weather, gossip and pictures came across “page not found” after “page not found.” Residents at Elauwit-run student housing facilities and Elauwit-owned blogs may have experienced these problems themselves. But today, after much debate, Go Daddy says the problem is solved.
GoDaddy.com, the popular domain registration company, released a statement today saying that many of its customers experienced intermittent service outages between 10 am PDT and 4 pm PDT. The issue, according to Interim CEO Scott Wagner, was a “series of internal network events” that caused the service interruption.
There was initial worry from Go Daddy customers because a member of the Internet hacking collective Anonymous initially claimed responsibility for the outages.
“The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a 'hack' and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS),” Wagner said in the company release. “At no time was any customer data at risk or were any of our systems compromised. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.”
This is great news for Go Daddy customers and us Internet fiends who can’t go 6 hours without our favorite web pages.
