Luckily it was just 1 server on that network. We're packing it up now and moving it to one of the other networks I use.

Looks like it was a router issue? Was told the route was not getting past New York. None the less, "do it once, shame on you - do it twice..shame on me"

Just got word from them that it was a DOS attack, the source of which they have identified.

Surprised by that explaination as there was absolutely no response (not even the hit and miss or extreme delay you normally get with DOS). Unless of course they pulled the plug and cut the whole network off because of DOS against one machine there?????

I made a couple of posts about this in my log (one, two).

If you don't read those you should at least hear the call one guy made to s4y. I think that's what a lot of us were experiencing.

No access in UK

Looks like their entire network is down. I can't get to any of my servers or any of theirs from within the UK.

Unbelievable! Their whole network is down and they have been pretty stable in the last 2 years that I have been with them. ddos attacks now and then but nothing major of this magnitude.

I would like to know the root cause of the downtime also...

this should be in the providers downtime forum, not dedicated servers... mods?

yes, the entire network, including the site and all control panel sites are down. and, of course, there is absolutely no way to reach them because they don't answer the phone. very very poor service in 2005.

kinda makes me think that the mods are slow to move non-paying or less paying advertisment companies.
