The GoDaddy guy didn't do such a bad job. It sounds like they had
some procedures and they followed them.

Operationally, not having someone on the shift who can make 
decisions is not a good thing. It's like having a NOC with
no shift supervisor. If you're big enough - a manager.

Disclaimer: In now way, shape, or form, should that be inferred as
a plug for or against GoDaddy. I'm nuetral.

Best!
