Your server is currently the target of a large Denial of Service attack, which leaves us no option but to null route your IP address. The incoming DoS attack was negatively affecting our other customers. Our network team is monitoring the traffic created by the attack and will bring your system up when it has subsided. Keep in mind, if it becomes the target of another DoS attack, we will have to take it offline once again. We apologize for any inconveniences, but the Abuse Department must protect the integrity of our network. Please update this ticket if you have any questions.
