(NaturalNews) A massive DDoS attack struck GoDaddy's name servers today, temporarily plunging thousands of websites into the internet abyss. "GoDaddy, the massive Web hosting company, went down on Monday, taking an untold number of websites with it," reported CNN. reported, "The more problematic part is that any domain registered with GoDaddy that uses its nameservers and DNS records are also down. This means that even if you host your site elsewhere, using GoDaddy for DNS means it is inaccessible."

PC World reports: "In a YouTube video (, secretive hacking group Anonymous has taken credit for the outage, claiming the move is a reaction to the company's support of the U.S. government's efforts "to censor and control the Internet," through its support of the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA)."

But claiming Anonymous did this attack may be false, it turns out. The apparent attacker said, himself, that he was not affiliated with the Anonymous collective:

"It is not Anonymous collective it's only me. Don't use Anonymous collective name on it, just my name," wrote Twitter user Anonymous Own3r. (

Most likely scenario? A false flag cyber security attack in order to provide the excuse for Obama to sign a freedom-killing executive order focused on "cyber security."

The attack has taken down GoDaddy's website, DNS servers, phone support and email accounts. It's almost as if a nuclear bomb went off at GoDaddy headquarters. This attack appears to be hugely successful from the point of view of Anonymous hackers, although it's not clear why GoDaddy was targeted in particular.

GoDaddy manages 48 million domains spanning more than 9 million customers. The failure of its DNS likely means that millions of websites were taken offline.

Domain Name Servers are a known vulnerability

Domain Name Servers are a well-known vulnerability of the internet infrastructure. As this attack by Anonymous has masterfully demonstrated, DNS provides a centralized single point of attack that, if penetrated, can bring down literally millions of websites.

DNS also provides a single point of government seizure, where rogue governments that hate free speech can take control over websites by commandeering their DNS records.

For these reasons, you need to know how to reach even if DNS is compromised

There is a workaround to DNS. You can bypass it and go straight to NaturalNews by simply entering the following "IP address" into your browser:

This is the equivalent of typing "" into your browser and it will work even if Domain Name Servers are being hacked or seized. This IP address will take you right to our website. It is our "digital address" recognized by all web browsers.

WRITE THIS NUMBER DOWN on a piece of paper and carry it in your wallet or purse. Even if the Domain Name Servers are illegally seized by the government in an assault on the freedom of the press -- or if they're brought down by hackers as was demonstrated today -- you can still use the IP address to reach us.

If appears to be unreachable during a crisis event, revert to using the numbers instead of the name, and the site will likely respond.
