I’m surprised this hasn’t been posted yet… So this morning, GoDaddy (ALL OF IT ) went down. That includes their site AND everyone hosting with them. If you check out their twitter, its all about how they have their whole team doing everything they can to get everyone back online.

Then, moments after getting back online, Anonymous comes out and claims responsibility, reason being that GoDaddy supposedly supports the SOPA and PIPA .

Best part of it all is that I had someone important looking at my portfolio at 10am and all they saw was an error page! :)

Anonymous Collective didn’t claimed responsibility, this guy is the only responsible. I must say it was an epic attack.

I was reviewing TF items and almost 30% of the sites were down, I thought it was my router. :P
