    We host a couple of small sites with them, which apparently were not affected.   They host our e-mail as well, and it worked very bad for several hours.  Not much we could do about it, besides putting pressure and wait.

    I have a personal web site hosted at GoDaddy also, and today I received an e-mail from them with an apology in which they also clarify that "At no time was any sensitive customer information, including credit card data, passwords or names and addresses, compromised", with the final paragraph including this text: "As a result of this disruption, your account will be credited for the value of 1-month of service for each of your active/published sites..."

    Matt Heusser wrote about the downtime, and all the unanswered questions that came with it, over on his blog: http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/unchartered-waters/the-ddos-that-wasnt/

    I'm guessing a one-month credit won't restore what many larger customers lost during the six-hour outage.

    Yep, several of my sites went down.  All you can do when that happens is grin and bear it.
