GoDaddy's Web site goes down

Domain and hosting super giant appears to be having server trouble, redirecting to the mobile version of the site.

UPDATE: 6:25 p.m. -- It appears GoDaddy.com is back to normal after being down for more than three hours. The company says on its Twitter feed that technical issues, rather than hackers, were to blame.

It appears the domain and hosting super giant GoDaddy.com--perhaps best known for its trademark racy Super Bowl commercials and spokesperson, Nascar driver Danica Patrick--is having server troubles today.

Users have reported on Twitter and elsewhere their troubles accessing GoDaddy.com, which many customers use as a primary access point for hosting and domain accounts. Tweets about troubles accessing the site first began showing up around 3 p.m. Pacific. The company's Twitter stream is currently a long list of replies to frustrated customers:

Currently, as of around 5 p.m. PT, GoDaddy.com redirects to the mobile version of the site. Just after 5 p.m., the company began tweeting this response to customers:

"...We're working on it. Thanks for your patience. We're directing to godaddymobile.com for now. You can manage most things there."

CNET will continue to keep on an eye on GoDaddy and update once we hear more from the company.
