(fixed) DDoS attack in progress


Over the past 24 hours (since June 12th at 11:00 CET), our web forwarding service has been the target of an extremely large DDoS attack. Our technical teams have been working on thep problem since it began, though it appears somewhat likely that the attack will succeed, meaning, the total saturation of our service and a subsequent temporary interrumption in service.

The services impactes will be all the web forwarding addresses that are configured on our DNS.

No other service is currently at risk (DNS, Email, Hosting, SSL, are OK).

We ask that you refrain from contacting our support with questions concerning this, as they can only forward you to this message, which will be updated in real time. The saturation of our customer support will only degrade the situation, while not being able to give you any more information concerning the status of the situation than is on this page.

We apologize for the inconvienence, and assure you that we are doing everything possible to recover from this attack and return to our normal quality of operation.


update: we have put in place a solution that has allowed us to reduce the risk of service interruption. We are therefore lowering the alert level, but will continue to monitor the DDoS which is still underway.
