DreamHost: Shared Server ‘bolkens’ downtime due to a Denial of Service Attack

We apologize for the downtime our customers on the shared server ‘bolkens’ are experiencing at this time.  A Denial of Service Attack is underway on a domain hosted on this shared server.  Our Admin team is working hard to resolve this issue and restore service for the rest of the server.  We will update this space with more details, should they become available.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Support for more information!

The DDoS target has been identified (a domain named after an American company under a Chinese-owned account), and the Apache service has been given a new IP address (those with unique ip addresses would be unaffected by this).
