:: Original Post ::

We are currently experiencing a Denial of Service attack against the shared server Nader. All sites on this server using the shared IP address are currently down as we had to null route the IP (starting at 2:45pm EDT 9/29/2015) to prevent further impact. Most Denial of Service attacks can last up to 24 hours. The null route will be reevaluated after this 24-hour period; if the attack has subsided, the IP will be routed back to the server. We will continue to add updates to this blog post.

We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue.
