    The web host that provides hosting for Silver Stackers is currently experiencing a DDOS attack against a server on their network, which is impacting network performance and site speeds of Silver Stackers. As far as I know it's not a targeted attack against Silver Stackers specifically - the company hosts thousands of websites, not just this one.

    Absolutely beyond my control, just a matter of waiting for the network provider to mitigate the attacks. Hopefully the DDOS is not against the specific server that Silver Stackers is on, as that may result in some down time as a result.

    Should the site go down, updates will be posted to the Silver Stackers Facebook page (no registration required) - http://www.facebook.com/SilverStackers

    Should be resolved - the impacted server was quarantined by the web host, which means the server this website is on is now unaffected.

    For now :/

    There's a website somewhere with this host that someone overseas dislikes very much!
