NameDrive under Denial of Service Attack

by Frank Michlick in Categories: News, Up to the Minute

Jon emails us to alert us that NameDrive is under a Denial of Service attack that now has been going on for over 18 hours. All the parked sites and their main server is down – this could turn out to be a major hit for the parking company, especially since they were trying to attract more North America customers.

Despite NameDrive changing all the landers to a mobile template, which contains less graphics and thus lowers the amount of requests coming into their servers, the sites are still down, even though they managed to bring them back up earlier this morning.

How safe is your parking provider? How safe is your hosting company? How safe is your registrar?

That’s nothing! At least not yet!

Recently, DSTinternet was down for 9 days. My husband and I both had accounts with 2 sites each. Even though they’re back up, our sites aren’t yet.

How safe is internet commerce?

dstinternet is bad news. It took me over a month to get my domains trtansferred to a new host after they went down.

Get out now before it’s too late! At the very least, transfer the domain registration to a different registrar so they can’t hold you hostage like they did me.
