Shift Frequency was caught up in this outage but neither my domain name nor service is from Go Daddy. So this attack is bigger than Go Daddy. Thanks in advance for your patience. The site may blink in and out a couple more times before this Denial Of Service manipulation concludes. Blessings ~G
The largest domain registrar on the Internet – GoDaddy.com – was taken offline on Monday, shutting down thousands and potentially million of users from websites hosted on affected servers. On Twitter, a person who claims to be affiliated with the loose knit Anonymous collective has taken credit for the attack, saying the action was necessary to test cyber security. RT web producer Andrew Blake breaks it down.
