From past two days i was getting threats from many non muslims that they can take my website down in few hours. .
due to few islamic posts titled “Islam is the fastest growing religion” There was a comment war in that post … and threads to me and my mate of getting website hacked…
This morning when i woke up i see the website down, my host (blue host) told me that this is a Ddos attack and we cannot allow you to host this site on our servers …
I was using Wordpress 3.0 and what can i do to make it live again ?
Was this first ddos ? . If its first one and they are saying this without much effort then it sure sucks of them.
When a host will tell you we can’t host you ? , its when they see one ddos , control/mitigate it to some extent , block some ip/ip-ranges , the next day or after few days , there is another one they try more , control it some what, and then again it continues and they spend some good hours fixing it and its still continuing.
This is the situation when a host tells you they can’t host you. As software firewalls etc, can’t coup much with severe ddos attacks , it require hardware firewalls which are quite expensive.
If your situation was the one explained above, then you will face same situation at many other hosts too. So before getting a server from new host, ask them how they would handle your site/server when it will face a ddos, try to get as much detail as you can. If you need any help/suggestion you can pass the host reply to me.
As far as G0daddy is concerned , I am not sure if I would recommend them to you. They are going down hill due to their financial situation and otherwise too I don’t feel its a very good but would agree not very bad either. As you have ordered the server already, so try to get info from them on ddos handling if you have not done that already.
As far as WP is concerend 3.0 is latest, but still audit your account, go through files and make sure its all clean and you don’t have any extra files than WP files in there. If you need any help with that , let me know and I can check it for you.
And lastly if you are expecting further threats and ddos on your site, then try to get with some specific hosts that provide ddos protection, they recieve traffic on different servers and then filter it and redirect to your site, or it can be addon as well, that keeping server at X company and getting ddos filtering from Y company, which will guide you on setup and your traffic on server X will reach after filtering from Y company , so you will not need to worry about any ddos at X company’s server.
