Has it been confirmed that register.com's outage was due to a DDOS?

as per usual, vzb's website is a poor excuse for a marketting tool (or
sales tool, or information gathering tool.. ugh) but, bullet #2 is one
option (that register.com I think actually was offered at one point in
time...)

is 3250/month cheaper than sla payouts from 3 days of running outages
each year or so?
