Go Daddy customers today started receiving emails by the company apologizing for the intermittent service outages experienced on September 10th. In an email, Go Daddy states that a series of internal network events corrupted the router data tables.
They also have stated in the email that at no time, no customer had their personal information such as password, name, addresses or credit card numbers compromised. As compesation, the company decided to offer its customers the value of 1-month of service for each of your active/published sites and the customer has to redeem the credit by Wednesday, September 19th.
As TheTechStuff.com was also affected during this outage and the website was down for many hours, we then decided to redeemed such credit and it was in total of $2.49. As for many people and businesses alike a compensation like that does not cover not even the first few minutes of inactivity of their websites and for many, it would make no difference redeem or not such a tiny amount.
