According to domain registrar Go Daddy, things are back to normal after yesterday's massive outage. The company noted that service outages started at around 1PM ET, with service being "fully restored" by 7PM. Contrary to claims of an attack from hackers, the company's interim CEO Scott Wagner insists that the outage "was not a 'hack' and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS)." Instead, Go Daddy is chalking the problem up to "a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables," adding that the company has taken steps to avoid a repeat of the problem. According to Wagner, data was never at risk during yesterday's issue.
