Apparently when I called about what I described in my last post, not everyone was necessarily aware that it was happening. Something has happened with Go Daddy’s servers that have effectively shut down several websites today.
Besides my own site, the actual Go Daddy homepage is not accessible. There also appears to be a problem with the Chicago Sun Times site and locally, the Birmingham Weekly site.
I’m sure there are several other sites that use Go Daddy as a host locally have been affected during the early part of the afternoon.
The person I spoke to at Go Daddy stated that there was not a known time for when the problem would be fixed but that they were working on it as quickly as possible. Luckily just as I was about to hit post, the problem appears solved.
The joys of working in a virtual universe.
We’ll talk to you again soon.
