On its system alert page, GoDaddy apologized for the “brief delay in service.”
“We are fixing an issue impacting one or more services,” GoDaddy said.
On Sunday (April 12th), GoDaddy’s security team identified a spike in traffic that “could be malicious in nature.” The company claimed to have resolved the issue, however it seems that Monday’s outage may be related. An update around 4:25 pm ET, which replaced the message about the “brief delay in service”, said that GoDaddy’s security team has identified another spike in traffic that could be “malicious in nature.”
The timing is less than ideal for GoDaddy, who made its debut on the NYSE less than two weeks ago. On Monday GDDY stock was at $25.30, up 0.04 percent from its previous close.
