The first DDoS attack hit their services Monday afternoon, June 21, while a consecutive attack occurred on Tuesday morning, June 21.

While engineers were busy fixing the issue, some users continued to have issues with the company’s web and e-mails services, according to a blog post by spokesman Shashi Bellamkonda.

“The nature of a DDoS puts the root cause beyond our control,” Bellamkonda wrote yesterday.

Hackers notably hit Network Solutions last summer by compromising a web template used by the companies’ customers to direct users from old, parked sites to addresses serving up malware.
