Actually, it began yesterday afternoon when my site began to slow up, eventually becoming inaccessible.
After a bit of back and forth with the folks who host my website, we deterimined the site was experiencing a DDoS attack. More about that here if you don’t know what that is.
Basically someone or someone set off a web attack to render my site inaccessible. Isn’t that awesome? My server guys put in some filters that shut down last night’s attack. But this morning’s attack was different and more persistant. I was moving to another server anyway, so the decision was made to just go ahead and move me to the new server with an upgraded operating system that could be configured to prevent future attacks more efficiently.
So. Could it be that someone’s mad at me? *snerk*.
Anyway, looks like we’re back in business. Sorry for the interruption. I’ll be playing catchup for the next hour or two, so watch out for more posts.
