It's a Monday and GoDaddy is Down - Anonymous Own3r Boasts on Twitter

Trying typing in www.GoDaddy.com into your browser and you will get a message about the IP unable to resolve and that there is a name server issue.

Here's what appears:

The requested URL could not be retrieved

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.godaddy.com/

The following error was encountered:

Unable to determine IP address from host name for www.godaddy.com
The dnsserver returned:

Server Failure: The name server was unable to process this query.
This means that:

The cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL.
Check if the address is correct.
Your cache administrator is webmaster.

Apparently, millions of websites that are hosted on GoDaddy are also down. And so is e-mail.

Although the service www.isitdownrightnow.com/godaddy.com.html, the GoDaddy company website is down as for everyone.

Websites such as www.IQHomeImprovement.com who uses GoDaddy's nameservers is also down.

One anonymous hacker, who is boasting about this huge takedown, is on Twitter saying that it was only him and not the entire anonymous collective. His Twitter username is http://Twitter.com/AnonymousOwn3r.
