NoDaddy

GoDaddy's service was down for a few hours today. As Wired report:

Many users of GoDaddy’s web hosting services found their websites down and their e-mail not going through on Monday afternoon, apparently following a failure of the company’s Domain Name Service servers.

I picked GoDaddy for my name host because at the time they were inexpensive, but the hassle of dealing with their unusable interface and apparent lack of security suggest it's time I moved to a new service provider. I'll be looking into it this coming weekend and will likely arrange a transfer of hosting.

This will hopefully be pretty smooth, but there's a chance the site may be unavailable briefly.
