We are aware of intermittent connectivity issues and slowness effecting all servers and the mddhosting.com website. A 6gb/s DDoS attack is hitting out datacenter who is currently in the process of mitigating the issue. We expect the issue to be mitigated shortly, however these attacks do tend to "evolve," so there may be additional periods of slowness and connectivity issues if that happens. Please follow this forum thread, as well as our Twitter and Facebook accounts for further information.

The target is not on our network. Even if it was, our privacy policy would prevent us from disclosing that information.

Who is the target of this attack?

It's not one of our servers or customers - the attack is just so large that it's choking out connectivity across a few upstream providers.  The facility is de-routing the attack and working to mitigate it as quickly as possible.

 

I, myself, over Level3 am having no issues but depending on which carrier your ISP uses you may or may not notice some sluggishness until the attack is fully subsided.

It was very short lived, around 5 minutes or so.
