As many of you know (some through unfortunate first-hand experience), there was a hacking attack on GoDaddy.com on 9/10/12. Below are some things you may want to know about the issue:
If you are using a company like AI Software for your web services, your information is 100% safe - as our web hosting services are separate from domains (GoDaddy). Furthermore, GoDaddy is a VERY strong and reputable company and you can count on the fact that they are taking measures to prevent this type of thing from happening in the future.
Hundreds of thousands of websites (if not more) experienced 4-5 hours of down time yesterday and countless hours of troubleshooting by IT companies like AI Software were misspent due to this issue. [However, even if your website was down the entire day, that only accounts for .274% downtime total on the year.]
Until World of Warcraft removes level caps, we (collectively) can expect that hackers will continue to try and disrupt Internet productivity.
