I am thankfull for this attack, because of this event, I grabbed 1 year of free hosting from HostGator :P They handed out coupon godaddyisdown that was supposed to give you 50%off, but they made a mistake and it gave me 100% off :D
Still working until now? Gonna check! :D
I am not sure, check it out.
It’s free for 6 month plan :D
Anyways, it’s incredible to put down all godaddy servers alone :O

6 months is still good :)

The issue was apparently caused by nameservers not resolving. So actual servers were never down, just unreachable.

So what you are telling us is that you are dishonest? You know you should only get 50 but you are going to keep 100? Not cool

Dishonest?

They gave out the code, I did not ask for it. I entered the code and got 100% off. What should I do, contact their support to bill me? Lol.

I tried being nice once with the company Zavvi.com They sent me the item twice by mistake. I contacted them to let them now and to check out how can I return it to them, but not a single thank you was given, I was also supposed to pay for shipping that extra one back to them.

I laughed ans since then, I grab my chance with companies that big. I don’t feel bad at all, poor HostGator starving because of my saving.

I think I would have laughed at them also if they told me to pay for shipping. I think I would have asked them if they were smoking crack?

Most companies insist on you capitalizing on their mistake in order to make light of the situation and at least gain your loyalty in exchange for minimal damage.
