New Year's DDoS a Blessing in Disguise

Perhaps it was for the best that Deepworld's hosting company was DDoSed. Why would I say something so obscene?? Well, because that means we shouldn't have to worry about this anymore. Deepworld will now have more reliable, and safer connections than last year. Instead of going down more than a few times, a year, HOPEFULLY, we'll be up and running without uncontrollable interruptions at all!

Give @mikelaurence and the crew some time. It's going to be a better year than before!!! :)

    Hosting providers have different protections and safe-guards put in place to help alleviate DDoS attacks. We don't know if the DDoS attacks are directly related to deepworld or somebody else targeting the provider for other reasons. The current one just isn't prepared for large attacks like we've seen throughout the year, and, hopefully, the new one will be better at handling it.

    Plus, this experience will better prepare ByteBin in the event that it happens in the future. :)

    You're not wrong @p1nkbr0. We've been annoyed with our current provider for a while, I guess this is a good push to make it happen. We're moving to Amazon, which does still have occasional outages, but I've never heard of them getting successfully DDoS'ed because they own like half the internet.

    I love Amazon!!!!!!!! I love shopping there!
