Attacked and Returned

We need your help, donate via PayPal! We host the FetChat Adult IRC (Internet Relay Chat), and there has been a series of attacks on the server itself.

We can protect against this kind of attack by stepping up our game in the hosting department, but this will take funds! Drop something in the donation bucket (and become a member if you aren’t already) and join us in chat by clicking the FetChat links in the sidebar!

For those technical folks: Using a Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) they threw over 600 M/bs at the IP address, and both attacks combined used over 138 gigs of my 200 gig transfer for the month. The hosting provider I use blackholed the IP address for 24 hours, which took down my website, email, and of course FetChat IRC. Since it was coming directly at the IP, my Cloudflare and MaxCDN did nothing to protect the server from the DDOS.
