    GoDaddy outage: Hosted websites and email are down.

    Video Guy Wayfarer

      Hi All,


      Just thought I'd pass the word.  If your website is hosted by GoDaddy, it is probably offline right now due to an outage affecting millions of GoDaddy websites.  You can read more about it here at Techcrunch.  Also, if you send & receive your email via GoDaddy servers, your email is probably not working either.


      All GoDaddy is saying for now via their Twitter is "Status Alert: Hey, all. We're aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We're working on it."  No mention of the issue's cause, and no time-frame for a fix.


      I'm sure lots of small businesses (mine included) use GoDaddy, but if something like this can happen to them and bring our sites down for an extended period of time, it may be worth looking at other web hosting alternatives.  I hope GoDaddy gets us up and running soon.
