I won't deal with a "support tickets / emails only" registrar or hoster who is not in the same country as I amit's very very late here, and we ( family ) all just started what feels like very early gastric flu..so my typing is worse than usual ..and the speelchucker thinks that most of what I type in English is wrong anyway..red lines underneath the word "write", every time I write "write" for some weird reason..
Out of the 10 banking or financial websites I tried to access over an 8 hour period, SIX went down for unexpected maintenance at one time or another. I couldn't believe that was coincidence, so I figured either something had just happened, or they'd been made aware of something that might happen and been instructed to do something preventative immediately.
I don't know if this is connected, but it does feel like something's brewing.
Because they are one of only a few big registrars who provide non 800 numbers ( you cant dial 800s into the USA from outside the USA ) and thus can be reached by phone.
The @Anon_Central Twitter feed, however, may have offered a rationale for going after the company, which last year came under fire for not opposing the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA), though GoDaddy eventually reversed course on those stances amidst pressure from the Web.
"By using / supporting Godaddy, you are supporting censorship of the Internet," Anon_Central's curators tweeted.
Kenneth Borg, who works in a Long Beach screen-printing business, told the Associated Press that FresnoDogPrints.com and two other sites were down. "We run our entire business through websites and e-mails, so everything's down today," Borg said.
"I'm definitely one for upsetting the establishment in some cases, and I understand that if (the hacker is) going after GoDaddy, he may have had many reasons for doing that," Borg said. "But I don't think he realized that he was affecting so many small businesses."
The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a "hack" and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS). We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again.
At no time was any customer data at risk or were any of our systems compromised.

Hello Citizens of the world, We are Anonymous. Dear brothers and sisters. Now is the time to open your eyes and expose the truth!
It has come to our attention that Go Daddy, an Internet domain registrar and web hosting company has gained the attention of anonymous and the world yesterday as it was experiencing "intermittent outages."
As silly as it seems, many members of anonymous are still puzzled whether it was truly an Anonymous member or a government entity is still unknown. However, many of us have concluded that Go Daddy was taken down because of its support for SOPA, the "Stop Online Piracy Act."
Go Daddy has committed many blatant attempt to destroy the Civil rights of the Ninety Nine percent. Political website that contained stinging criticism of the Obama administration have been removed by Go Daddy because it was, in there words, "maliciously harmful to individuals in the government."
Therefor Anonymous asks the ninety nine percent to boycott Go Daddy and remove there hosting to another domain name servers.
Anonymous would like to point out that Go Daddy who is, currently running millions of sites around the world, is actively putting SOPA, a bill that was petitioned by four point five million people, into effect.
Manchurian Candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, has already committed many acts of destruction against the constitution of the United States claiming it as an "Imperfect document" and he has already signed such unconstitutional bills as NDAA "national defense Authorization Act"and Executive order NDRA "National Defense Resources Preparedness." These bills are violations to our constitutional and civil liberties.
People of the world, Our internet freedom is dwindling because of government tyranny. For the love of all our future and humanity, wake up and open your eyes before the United States of America follows in the footsteps of Communist China.
We are Anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
we do not forget.
@bigbearhw ok if you say so Iím not inside their servers lol you will see soon

AnonymousOn3r responsible for the recent GoDaddy outage released Godaddy source code and database
Godaddy that later today said that no DDoS attacks took place today and that the outage issue was technical is proven to have lied.
The hacker posted a link on pastebin that anyone can download the source code and the database
