As I write this I am on the phone with the reps of GoDaddy and SecurePayment.net the parent companies for or DiscountedWeb.com product site and they are telling me that their network is currently DOWN and not accessible - even to them.
I will keep you posted here.
How does this affect you: Most cases it will not, however if you are using any of the local services to DiscountedWeb.com, like email or file folder, these are currently off line. If you need to make changes to your domain name - you'll have to wait until they come back on-line.
GoDaddy, DiscountedWeb and SecurePayment services seem to up and fully running.
