GoDaddy service fails millions of websites.

Today, Monday 10th Sepetember, Godday has crashed.   TheMain site is accessible but technical problems means that millions of sites have been offline.

Even sites that are not hosted on godaddy have been impacted, as any forwarding of sites via DNS A records seem to be impacted too.

In the case of ‘badlywired’, even though we run on our own servers unfortunately the Nameservers are doamins are on Godaddy, and that makes our sites unreachable to anyone that hasn’t got our IP  addresses cached.

So there is a lesson about putting all your eggs in on basket isn’t there. So now I’m thinking how best to diversify Nameservers.
