So they aren't a victim of anything but their own incompetence? Being DDOSed isn't exactly anything to be ashamed of, with enough horsepower or enough bots anyone can DDOS anything in the end. However, DOSing yourself is a bigger problem. Taking a long time to fix a corrupt routing table means they don't have very good processes and procedures available to recover from a pretty minor problem. This isn't the first time GoDaddy has looked like they don't have someone with all their scruples firmly at the helm. No one is perfect, but maybe they should stick to shooting elephants, other PR debacles, misogyny and taking sites off the internet and get out of the rest ;-)
