Despised Web Hosting Company GoDaddy Goes Down, Possibly Attacked By Hackers

Everyone who didn't drop web hosting company GoDaddy during one of its many scandals—The sexist ads, the elephant-killing CEO, its support of SOPA—probably wishes they did now. GoDaddy's DNS service, which makes web addresses legible to humans, has crashed hard. Millions of websites are offline. It's a shame so many innocent people rely on GoDaddy to run their websites because otherwise we'd have no qualms about celebrating something that would make GoDaddy's uniquely hateable CEO Bob Parson's day a little less pleasant.
