'Technical Glitch' or, in other words, 'We Were Too Focused On Other Things And Forgot To Renew Our DNS Like We Should Have'

Happy77's blog post about the downtime.

On June 20, 2011, Club Penguin forgot to renew their DNS (Domain Name System), so the site went down for an entire day, sparking concerns from players.[3][4][5]

Happy77 posted this onto the What's New Blog regarding the situation:

Hello Penguins!

UPDATE: Club Penguin is available for most players again. But we have heard that some of you can't see it yet. Thanks for letting us know. The team is still working on fixing any issues with the site. Thanks for your continued patience with this.

As some of you heard, Club Penguin's domain name (clubpenguin.com) had a technical glitch this weekend. The technical glitch has been fixed, but it will take some time for the site to appear as it should around the world.

Remember-- when in doubt, talk to a parent or guardian if something looks suspicious for you.

July 2013 downtime

On July 15, 2013, at around 1:39 PM PST, Polo Field made a tweet reporting that Club Penguin was down.[6] Unlike other downtimes, which usually lasted for minutes, this one lasted for around 12 hours. Some reports indicate that the cause for this downtime was a Denial-of-service attack executed by unknown users.

For the following hours several tweets were posted by Spike Hike, Polo Field and Club Penguin regarding the situation, and later moving on to discuss other topics to dissipate the fear on the players.

At around 1:45 AM, Club Penguin posted a tweet on their Twitter saying that the servers were back online and that the team were squashing final bugs.[7]

Trivia
