Shortly after 1:30 p.m. ET, @GoDaddy took to Twitter to say: "Status Alert: Hey, all. We're aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We're working on it." The cause and the true scale of the outage is unknown. Many customers and users have taken to social networking sites, such as Facebook, Google+, and Twitter, to complain that the sites they operate or are trying to access are not loading. Some are complaining that their email communications are affected, such as individual email accounts and servers. A member associated with the hacktivist Anonymous collective has claimed responsibility for the 'attack.'"
