Tommy has been experiencing some downtime today due to DDoS attacks. We're moving everyone over to an ip address that isn't affected by the attack, but the old ip might stay cached in dns for a while. If you flush your os dns records it may speed up the process. If you're the one attacking us just let us know what you're issue is and we can solve it for you. Thanks for your patience during this unexpected downtime.

How it is possible, that someone send a sucessfull DDos attack? It isnt defended, or you dont have any protection?

These attacks clog the network up, so the server can't be reached. The server itself has nothing wrong with it, just nobody's requests could make it to the server, so it appeared as down. We moved them over to another IP in hopes the attack would die when the old IP no longer responded, but it didn't work as planned so we moved them back.


The attacker uses a botnet to send the attack, so the network connection simply becomes overwhelmed with data.

Please do not PM me for support. Posting on our forums lets all of us learn.
