HUTP - Downtime and Severe DDoS attacks ...

Post by Hook » Wed Jun 12, 2013 8:24 pm

Downtime and Severe DDoS attacks - Just to update everyone...

Hook's UT Place's Host, and therefore Hook's UT Place and also The UT99 Forum, Site and Server Directory, is currently the recipient of frequent and severe DDoS attacks, which is why our forums are down. :roll:
(Wonder who it is??? LOL, he certainly got the attention of our host and ISP - He WILL be caught Now!) :P
Everyone at our Host is hard at work to mitigate the attacks, and will have everything back to normal as soon as we can.

Again, we apologize for this inconvenience, and we appreciate your continued patience. :)

Not to mention our CMM server has taken a crash or two which is HIGHLY Unusual!!!
Hmmmm?...

You got me. I'm busted. I'm just so jealous of your success. You have the finest group of members at your forum in the world and run the best Redeemer Mod Server ever created. Please forgive me. I just wanted some attention. I hope to be more like you when I grow up.
~Peace~

Anyway...
Seems to be fixed now - per our Host.
They WILL be monitoring for further attacks and detecting who it is. :)

Okay, fine. I confess. Ya got me.

All the pressure to make a female version to that male skin I made for your server finally got to me. Then, in a sudden moment of clarity, it occurred to me if you lost your stuff then I wouldn't have to finish it.

Up and down like a Yo-Yo.
There are various sites you can use to quickly check.
http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com
http://www.isitdownrightnow.com
http://is-it-down.com
http://www.isup.me

I am going to try using the CoralCDN http://hooksutplace.freeforums.org.nyud.net once it is back up.
This will cache anything visited for 12 hours.
If more people also view other pages via the same URL there will be a wider spread of times and pages cached.

The world-wide attack rate is down from yesterday, but still 98.26% above normal
