I couldnt get through to the site. (for a while now). Timed Out

So I checked with gtmetrix as I normally do and the result is as follows

Analysis Error

An error occurred fetching the page: write failed: Connection timed out

Anyone know anything about this

EDIT - I could log into my vps just fine. Apologies for the vague title earlier

  • Not loading here either. I'm sure @serverian is already working on it.

    Yeap.

  • We got a DDoS. Migrating the website to a DDoS filtered IP now.

    Note that only the website is down. No service is affected. I'd appreciate if you can change the title to "VPSDIME WEBSITE DOWN?"

    Nothing says 'happy fucking birthday' like a DDoS.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

  • Apologies... Changed

  • Probably from too much success from your birthday special. Seems like that's a common occurrence here

    Before I go on further, I am very new to computing (noob)

    was doing a bit of a (after serverian said it was a DDOS) read / view on the internet on DDOSing for the past 15minutes. Is it that simple as that?.

    Correct me if I am wrong - Anyone (not necessarily a hacker) with quite a lot of vps's or a Dedi with a lot of ip's and good unmetered & high speed bandwidth can send out DDOS' just like that, if their provider doesn't give a f**k about what happens on their network....can't they?

    Kind of, its more common that open resolvers or hi-jacked computers/botnets are utilized (at least in my experience).

  • I guess someone got pissed of because of the 7$ offer, like it sometimes happend before when some UK Providers posted deals.

  • @ez2uk said:

    Lol, little more complicated then that ...

  • What a present for their birthday... It is very sad to see that providers with huge success in this community (like Oktay with his several brands) and with very very good services, are getting hit all the time because of some morons that cannot stand a wealthy competition...

    Hey, stupids, whatever you may try to do, this will not harm Serverian (or other respected providers here) reputation.

    After a couple of migrations and lots of pain, we have ended up with an OVH server in Canada. The website is back up.

    Thank you for your support guys!

    The method he's doing it is called DoS (ping flooding), and his home connection is garbage, so it will won't affect much unless the host connection is garbage.

    What about you stop digging up year old threads for once? It gets extremely annoying and your posts are not even useful in any way.
