Godaddy.com says a web hosting outage involving thousands and possibly millions of websites Monday was due to internal problems, not an attack by hackers.
The company hosts more than 5 million websites, mostly small businesses.
A handful of those are based out of the Grand Valley.
In a statement Tuesday, Go Daddy said "internal network events" fouled up its routers, which direct data traffic.
Meadery of the Rockies says its website and email was down for several hours.
At first it heard a hacking incident was the cause and was relieved to learn the problem was internal.
Owner, Glenn Foster, says, ”There was some impact but it certainly wasn't huge. It gets you thinking but it could happen to anyone."
The meadery says its business and website is back up and running as usual.
It hasn't heard any kind of explanation from its webhost and says there's some concern the problem could happen again.
Go Daddy CEO, Scott Wagner, apologized Tuesday, saying "We take our business and our customer's businesses very seriously. We apologize to our customers for these events and thank them for their patience."
