HostExcellence: Urgent Server Maintenance

We are currently working to resolve an issue experienced earlier where some web and mail servers had a brief loss of communication to the storage drives. As a fail safe to protect data, some servers went in to Read Only mode and any dynamic site became unavailable, however static sites will still  operate. Connection was quickly restored, but servers must be restarted to restore normal operations.

Please see below list of affected servers.

List of affected servers:
web1002, web1003, web1007, web1010, web1014, web1020, web1022, web1029, web1130, web1115, web303, web313, web407, web421, web905, web907, web908, web909, web913, web916, web919, web921, web923, web925, web929, web942, web943, web944, mail515, mail519, mail911, pgsqlcp3, mail907, web1018, web927

HostExcellence: web1103 shared IP: 50.6.0.2 – Filtered – RESOLVED

Our system administrators detected a Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS), launched against the shared IP address of Web1103 – 50.6.0.2

A DDoS is is an attempt to make a computer resource unavailable to its intended users. The way the attack is carried out varies as much as who is attacked and why. One common method of attack involves saturating the target (victim) machine with external communications requests. This creates so many false connections to the server, real attempts to connect cannot be completed. Because so many domains share an IP, it is not possible to determine which site the attack is directed at. In many cases, a temporary block is sufficient until the DOS attack passes, however, if the attack continues, the shared IP could remain blocked for an extended period of time.

In order to mitigate the attack and keep server online, system administrators have temporarily filtered all connections to that IP address. This allows us to keep websites that are hosted on the dedicated IP addresses of Web1103 online. Once the attack is over, we will remove the IP filter
