It seems that XenForo.com has gone down about 5 times in the past couple days which is quite odd.
Ah, that's rough. By chance are they from Vietnam?
DDoS attacks aren't usually from one specific country. When attacked, it can be from China, Vietnam, Polan, Latvia, all at the same time. If the traffic was just coming from one country, it would be sort of easy to block.
The reason @Jake B. asked about Vietnam was because another site got "hacked" and posts deleted because someone's mod account got compromised on that site by someone from a Vietnamese IP address and that IP address was shared with someone from a certain banned from here members warez site.
Lol now we're suggesting ******* is trying to take out the very site that provides his means for a living? Classic!
It was actually meant as more of a joke
I am curious why you thought that
Ahhh, I figured more DNS issues.
I was busy finishing one of my walkthroughs for YouTube, and until eight minutes ago, I hadn't even been on here since 1:06 PM (PDT). In other words, I wasn't affected.
I believe @digitalpoint started using cloud flare after getting attacked as well and recommended them
Just to make it clear, I know nobody is dumb enough to attack a site they make their money off of..
or hack a site in their niche they make money off of..
That is more likely. TAZ in no way causes him to make any money. It only hinders his appearance with the discussions about him.
Nothing definitive on anything about ******* and the... let's call it a "hacking", nothing definitive about them behind the DDos...
Not defending anything, just saying... a bit extreme.
Why not protect xenforo.com with Cloudflare?
Why would they? CloudFlare is junk. Thousands of licenses @ min $100.00 each (based on highest discount tier) equals profits to afford real DDoS mitigation services from somewhere like Staminus.
What are you talking about? Cloudflare Business is $200/mo per website. No need to buy "thousands of licenses".
He's talking about there being thousands of xenforo licenses priced at a minimum of $100, which is the cheapest you can get a license at if you have enough of them
Where did I ever say thousands of licenses needed to be purchased? If you reread carefully, you'll see I was talking about xenForos profit margin. Since no quarterly statements have ever been released, based on solely amount of licensed people who post here it can be assumed atleast several thousand xenforo licenses have been sold, giving a profit margin to afford a real service, not something intended for the hobby webmaster. Using CloudFlare for DDoS protection, is like hosting with GoDaddy.
