Hi everybody,

If your resolver is failing to resolve around 5% of domains right now, it is
not you, it is them. Godaddy is down. In our tests, they represent almost 5%
of all popular domains.

Just so you know!

Subject: [dns-operations] Go Daddy is down

Hi everybody,

Go Daddy's servers appear to be down. I first noticed this from the
automated PowerDNS Recursor bulk test, which suddenly could only resolve
91.6% of domains successfully (96% is the norm) [1].

Our test set consists of the most popular domain names on the internet. The
test usually terminates in 3 minutes but now takes 7. This might imply a
level of stress on busy resolvers getting so many timeouts.


[1] that it isn't 100% has to do with some domains existing only as www. or
only without it)..
