Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

GoDaddy said it was caused by corrupted router data tables.

Am I the only one that's slightly annoyed about the picture of Danica Patrick, racing star, being depicted on everything that has to do with GoDaddy?

I am a customer with them because I need certain services, and no matter if they supported God, Tom Hanks, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Bieber or whoever, it would not make a difference for me.

So I'm thinking, is people really this stupid? They see some good looking lady associated with a company, and they go all drooling over each other to become a customer, or they would say: "Yeah, I'm a customer of Godaddy, same hosting company as Danica Patrick uses.

I always wondered why famous people often 'prostitutes' themself in TV-commercials, often they're promoting outright fraudulent products as well (not that I say GoDaddy is a fraud). I guess many people think that the words coming from the mouth of a celeb holds higher value ? Beats me!

I am not just slightly annoyed. This is precisely the reason I avoid companies like Godaddy as a customer.

I am a customer with them because I need certain services, and no matter if they supported God, Tom Hanks, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Bieber or whoever, it would not make a difference for me.

It makes a hugh difference to me. Celebrity endorsements are very expensive. The money has to come from somewhere either higher prices or poor service or both. In this case it looks like both. There are many far better alternatives for domain registration and DNS hosting.

So I'm thinking, is people really this stupid? They see some good looking lady associated with a company, and they go all drooling over each other to become a customer, or they would say: "Yeah, I'm a customer of Godaddy, same hosting company as Danica Patrick uses.

Yes a lot of people are very stupid. That is why companies like Godaddy spend billions of USD a year on celebrity endorsements and lavish marketing campaigns. In this case one can choose between redundant DNS and better uptime or a celebrity endorsement. The redundant DNS does not cost more, in fact in some cases it may actually cost less. It just means that your site stays up.

I always wondered why famous people often 'prostitutes' themself in TV-commercials, often they're promoting outright fraudulent products as well (not that I say GoDaddy is a fraud). I guess many people think that the words coming from the mouth of a celeb holds higher value ? Beats me!

For the money. For many sports celebrities this is their major source of income. I do not blame the celebrities for earning a living, I just choose not to pay them by purchasing overpriced and / or substandard products or services.

Just one word: Namecoin

+1

Whether it's corrupt tables, NSA op, or anonymous script kiddie, the solution is the same.

Namecoin peeps, get your DNS servers and websites running please!!  We're counting on you when for when the shit hits the routing table.

Actually Namecoin does not solve this problem at all. An incompetent DNS host that chooses to spend its resources on celebrity endorsements rather than server redundancy can fail for the exact same reason even if the root servers were based on Namecoin.

The CEO sent this mail to all customers, also they gave me a small credit of a few euros (didn't ask for it).

Quote
Dear Customer,

We owe you a big apology for the intermittent service outages we experienced on September 10 that may have impacted your website, your email and other Go Daddy services.

We let you down and we know it. We take our responsibilities — and the trust you place in us — very seriously. I cannot express how sorry I am to those of you who were inconvenienced.

The service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented a series of immediate measures to fix the problem.

At no time was any sensitive customer information, including credit card data, passwords or names and addresses, compromised.

Throughout our history, we have provided 99.999% uptime in our DNS infrastructure. This is the level of performance we expect from ourselves. Monday, we fell short of these expectations. We have learned from this event and will use it to drive improvement in our services.

As a result of this disruption, your account will be credited for the value of 1 month of service for each plan that has at least one active or published site (Web Hosting, Quick Shopping Cart®, Website Builder, Email, etc.).* This credit will be available to you for the next 7 days. Please click the button below to redeem your credit.


It's an honor to serve you. As always, please call us 24/7 at 480-505-8877 — anytime, for any reason.

Ive got a few sites with godaddy, ill be removing them asap.

Which reminds me to email them and ask them about the stance of their company on SOPA, as thats why the attack went on.


Has anyone actually heard any thing from godaddy in regards to the SOPA?
