Those sites were:

  • Sketchers
  • SodaStream
  • TacoBell

The Results showed that the cokechase.com website was nowhere before the game and after that the website constantly timed out after 30 seconds. Also their home website http://www.cokeacola.com also went down for hours. Also Gildan Activewear website went down for a few minutes. Taco Bell’s new version of their website resulted in a larger, and slower loading website.
