    As many of you know, we have been the target of some ddos attacks lately. Why we are being targeted, who knows, but we are the target, and these ppl seem intent to make sure the server stays down.

    Because of this, I will be switching hosting companies, as BeastNode is not capable of hosting our server and providing us adequate protection at the same time.

    Luckily I have found a host that not only has ddos protection standard with every server, but has also assured me that we will be protected from these attacks if we switch. If the don't work out, I have a backup company as well.

    I will be performing the transfer either tonight, or tomorrow night, depending on Clamps schedule. So there will be a bit of scheduled downtime, but we will try to do it very late at night when there are few players online.

    So I apologize for the down time caused by the attacks, and hope you all come back after the hosting company switch. I will post again when the transfer is complete.

    Yea, but now starts teh long horrible process of finding a decent hosting company. Lots of them are total scams, liars and cheats. Like the one who is refusing to give me a refund currently.

    The first company ended up being a total scam. Now I have to use paypal to fight for a refund, because they refuse to give one even when the account was less than an hour old when I asked.

    Whatever, we moved on, and found a different company. This one is much better!
