This week’s nationwide failure of GoDaddy email and website hosting has many consumers and business owners asking questions about the reliability of their email and website platforms.   This Saturday (September 15th) at 5PM Central The Consumer Team will feature special program segments focusing on these issues.   Jeff Fox, Technology Editor from Consumer Reports Magazine, will be a featured guest on the program which is heard on 1080 KRLD Radio in Dallas-Ft. Worth.

Pete Thomson, host of The Consumer Team, said the goal of the program will be to identify clearly the problem but also suggest solutions.  “Both individuals and companies discovered how dependent they are on GoDaddy this week.  When GoDaddy’s email and websites failed for around 4 hours on Monday, it created serious issues for both consumers and businesses.”   Thomson added, “The Consumer Team will discuss several theories that are emerging regarding the cause of the GoDaddy incident.   We will also discuss ways that individuals and businesses can create email and website redundancy to alleviate the negative impact of future failures.”

Regarding Jeff Fox of Consumer Reports Magazine, Thomson commented, “Consumer’s Union and Consumer Reports Magazine are unmatched when it comes to objective consumer reporting and advocacy.   Whenever we can get one of their writers on our program, it always results in very good information being shared.  Jeff Fox has made several appearances on The Consumer Team.  He’s always very prepared and knows the issues inside and out.  We’ll all learn from Jeff this Saturday on The Consumer Team.”
