Any business or organization that has a domain name, website or email with GoDaddy.com, has probably been down most of the day today because their entire system is down. For hours, you couldn’t even go to their website. They posted on their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/GoDaddy and twitter @GoDaddy that they were aware of the problem and working on it. Many domains, emails and websites are back up, including GoDaddy’s but who knows how many might still be down.
Thousands of businesses were affected by this today, Logicreative included. We have become so dependent on the internet that something like this begs the questions:
1) Why was it so easy for them to hack the site?
2) What protection will they have in place in the future
3) How can businesses prepare should it happen again?
Questions #1 and #2 are for GoDaddy to answer. As for #3, Logicreative has some Advice to Businesses.
Logicreative Advice to Businesses:
Logicreative admits that, like so many others, we were not as prepared as we could have been. We did implement #4, #5, and #6 and were able to prevent any undue panic. Logicreative ALWAYS keeps back-up files for all our clients’ websites so down or not, they’re NEVER lost. We realize, however, that we need to be better prepared, as does everyone else! We will become prepared should this happen again.
