Wired is one of the few publications that generally does a good job of reporting all things technical and internet related.
However the magazine’s site last night ran an article reporting on the GoDaddy outage with the title:
On what planet do GoDaddy and Verisign compete? I had posted a comment on the article over there last night, but Wired have deleted it.
GoDaddy is a registrar
Verisign is a registry.
They have a symbiotic relationship.
The only way that anyone could describe the companies as competitors would be if you ignored Verisign’s sale of its SSL business to Symantec…
I’d have expected Wired to get it right – this is just sloppy reporting
