Amazon Down?

 5:41 pm on Jun 6, 2008 (gmt 0)

Anyone else finding Amazon unavailable? I'm just wondering how long it's been out and how many affiliate sales I'm loosing!

I haven't been able to make any connection since 1pm Eastern. Don't know before that. All I can get is a "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable" message. All other websites seem fine.

And how about Paypal? Seems to be down for me too.

If I remember correctly, many years ago there was a statistic from Amazon.com that each minute of downtime cost them $100,000 in lost business. The company's much larger now, so that number should be much higher. I don't think people realize just how strong Amazon.com is, they did 15 Billion dollars in revenue in 2007... a little downtime is not going to affect their reputation for incredibly low prices, extremely fast shipping, and excellent customer service.

Amazon is working fine for me but IMDB (Amazon owned) is down.

Both appear back to normal.

Didn't the outage coincide with the release of a popular video game? (Metal Gear Solid 4). That's the rumour I heard. That it was a legit DoS attack by thousands of gamers holding down their "F5" key waiting for the presale to begin.

Are they down again? It is 1:09 EST on June 9th and we can't get on there...

Most Godaddy clients have not been able to receive AWS since Amazon came back up. Don't know if Amazon is blocking Godaddy. No one has seemed to figure this one out yet. But it has been a few days now and there are a lot of angry developers out there.

Sounds like a DNS problem at GoDaddy. Best to use a third-party DNS rather than rely on the free DNS service at the domain registrar.

There is some sort of DNS issue reaching Amazon when I use DOS

tracert amazon.com

Do you believe these DNS issues will resolve shortly as that seems to be the nature and design of the internet?

What's the big deal? Web sites go out and come back all the time. It's only a matter of time before a big one, like Amazon, goes out too. It's the nature of the internet. With over 30,000,000,000.000 pages out there, there's bound to be some trouble all of the time.
