Recent DOS Attacks

Unfortunately we have been having some downtime issues over the last 24 hours due to several DOS attacks. Be assured that we are working on stopping and preventing this from happening in the future.

We have been constantly monitoring the apache status of the server and could find that there is contact attack and heavy apache access from many IPs. The main problem is that the access IPs keep on changing. Due to this, we are now configuring our Brute Force Detection software in order to prevent any further attacks. Furthermore we have enabled Mod_Dosevasive in order to prevent this.

We thank you for your patience during this time, be assured that we at HostedFX are determined to deliver the best service to our customers at all times. We will always do everything within our power to ensure maximum performance and reliability.
