Godaddy DNS Outage Hits Millions of Sites, the largest domain name registrar in the world suffered a massive outage this weekend.

Multiple sources (here, here, here and here) have confirmed that Godaddy’s DNS servers went down for a period of several hours on Sunday, potentially because of the daylight savings time switch. In theory, every domain name registered with Godaddy was affected, representing one of the the largest single points of failure in Internet history.

So far, Godaddy hasn’t made any official comments about the reasons behind the outage except a short statement citing technical difficulties.
