UPDATE, March 2, 9 pm ET: This story has been updated to include a statement from GoDaddy.

GoDaddy has resolved a DNS disruption which occurred on Thursday due to an unidentified technical problem, affecting website and account access for some users.

A tweet from GoDaddy Help at 12:22 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) on Thursday acknowledged that users in the EU region were experiencing connection issues.

One Twitter user claimed the issue began affecting websites on Wednesday night, however.

First reported by The Register, the DNS connection issue was causing long queues in its customer support department, with some customers waiting on hold for 17 minutes.

GoDaddy’s status page acknowledged issues with domains, websites, and My Account, which have been resolved.

A lengthy disruption to Amazon’s S3 storage service affected thousands of websites on Tuesday.

“Earlier this morning, we experienced a DDoS attack on some of our DNS servers that impacted a small number of customers’ domains for approximately six hours,” GoDaddy told the WHIR in a statement. “We apologize for the inconvenience. The issue has been resolved and service has been restored.”
