But the company blamed a "series of internal network events".

"At no time was any customer data at risk or were any of our systems compromised," the site's chief executive Scott Wagner said in a press release issued on Tuesday.

"The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a 'hack' and it was not a denial of service attack.

"We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables.

"Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and GoDaddy.com. We have implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again."
