  1. Learned about the DDoS

@Admin, please let me know if the Error 522 is due to DDoS or something else
Also, if possible, please change the IP assigned to to one of your other IP, that is not affected by the attack.

The IP your website is on ( is still being DDoSed. The iFastNet team is working for it, and your website (and the websites on the same IP as yours) should be online after a day. If you don’t want to wait, you should also consider creating a new hosting account with the same domain name after deleting the old one, so that you will find another IP that is not being DDoSed.


Thank you for clarifying that. So, the Error 522 is due to the DDoS and not because I configured something wrong
