(The Hosting News) – Web Hosting site Go Daddy is back online after facing an outage that lasted a few hours yesterday. The web hosting company has taken responsibility for the incident, saying that a software update was responsible for the downtime.
In a post on the site’s Community Blog, Chief Information Officer Neil Warner stated, “We caused the issue, not someone else. We made some changes to our website, and those updates failed. As a result, www.GoDaddy.com went down.”
Warner went on to say, “My team is investigating what went wrong with our site update process so we can avoid an issue like this in the future.”
During yesterday’s downtime, users were unable to access their accounts through the host provider’s homepage. However, they could still access their accounts through mobile versions of Go Daddy’s site.
Go Daddy is one of the largest online domain registrars and currently hosts over 45 million domains.
