Unscheduled Security Maintenance across multiple servers

Dear Customers,

Service affected: HTTP (Web)
Services NOT affected: email, MySQL (databases), FTP

Multiple servers are experiencing connectivity issues with the web server (HTTP) due to high server load and this issue is being investigated at this moment.

High server load issues with the servers are primarily due to a network attack.

During this outage, your websites will not be available. All other services are online and available. We apologize for this inconvenience and we will continue providing updates as soon as possible.

We are noticing that Joomla sites are among many of the sites being attacked across our server fleet. We will be adding more countermeasures to mitigate these attacks.
