If you’re wondering why my site has been unavailable off and on all day, here’s what I’ve been seeing from a WordPress plugin:
This was yesterday. In the chat transcript, by host, Bluehost, who has never notified me of my site’s being down, and whose tech support told me days ago when I first asked what was going on…. Wait, let me begin again.
Days ago, I got in a live chat with tech support to see why my blog was going down repeatedly. “Is it some kind of attack?” I asked. “No, no attack.”
So yesterday, I got on again and got a different tech, who told me the server I share is experiencing a DDoS — a Distributed Denial of Service — attack. They tell me I can minimize this sort of thing if I spring for a dedicated server.
And I’m like: Uh-huh.
So I’ll probably be transferring my site to another host, so I might be gone for a few days. Not sure when this grand move will take place, but I’ll try to get it done before Story-A-Day May.
Meanwhile, I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about Eggrolls With An Italian Accent.
