Google users faced problems with Google.de domain for 2 hours

24.01.2007

Google, the giant search engine, has confirmed that they lost control of their German website Google.de for around two hours on Tuesday. The reason for it was a problem with address reassignment.

The company however declared that this issue was not caused by any sort of hacking attempt. It seems like that the DeNIC (German organization that assigns domain names) made some kind of an error and gave away control of the domain to someone else.

Visitors of the website during the downtime period were directed to an unfinished Web site of a client of a hosting company named Goneo.

“The site belongs to Google again. We were able to solve the problem quickly and now we’re trying to get to the bottom of it,” said a Google representative later.
