GoDaddy said hackers were not responsible for millions of websites it hosts going offline Monday.
The Arizona-based company, which has registered more than 53 million Internet domains and hosts more than 5 million websites, said the issues were caused by internal problems.
"The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a "hack" and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS)," the company's interim chief executive, Scott Wagner, said in an email statement Tuesday morning. "We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables."
Wagner said once the company identified the issues, it began restoring users' websites. He also said GoDaddy has "implemented measures to prevent this from occurring again."
