Docx2doc.com Downtime due to Godaddy DOS Attack
Although Docx2doc.com does not use Godaddy to host our web site, we did experience downtime because one service in particular uses the Godaddy service. The DNS (Domain Name Service) for Godaddy was down for hours yesterday making Docx2doc.com inaccessable because the the domain name could not be translated into and IP (Internet Protocol) address.
Your computer tries to find our site IP address when you type in www.docx2doc.com into your browser or click on a link. This service was not working because of the Denial of Services (DOS) attack on Godaddy and users subsequently could not go to our web site.
After several hours of downtime Monday it appears systems are back to normal. We apologize for any inconvenience.
