My Site is Down From DDOS Attack

I just watched my hits spike and attackers are trying to deface from my website. I have the site currently redirecting to twitter. If that is intercepted I gave them an exit; die(); on a failed connection. I cannot access files or FTP.

Your website is working fine from here now.

If you want to block attacks more effectively, I’ve seen people add a .htaccess rule with the content Redirect / Unlike your approach, it’s handled directly by the web server and doesn’t require any PHP processes to be started, which should help with load.


I cannot access file manager or connect though FTP and it keeps kicking me out when I do. I also cannot access redirects.

Yeah, there were some load issues on the FTP system yesterday. Should be fine now though.
