If you tried to visit the GoDaddy Auctions website today, you saw that the company experienced some major downtime. According to an email I received from a company representative, the website is now operational.
Paul Nicks, Sr. Director of the Aftermarket at GoDaddy, had this update to share:
“We took our GoDaddy auction website offline earlier today after our monitoring systems alerted us to a potential issue. Once we confirmed the health of our system, we took additional time to reset our auction end dates. Auctions.GoDaddy.com is now up and running. As a reminder, we will be extending any auctions set to end today by an extra day. We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.”
I am sure it was a bit of an inconvenience to customers, but I am glad that the issue seems to be resolved. If you notice anything funky, I am sure they would appreciate a “head’s up” about it through the company’s support channels or Twitter feed.
