At around 12:20 pm today, our website went down due to a DDOS attack, which affected thousands of websites.
DDOS mitigation was put in place by our host, which brought services back online, and the DDOS has itself now stopped. Our host aims to have a more comprehensive DDOS protection in place 24/7 within the next couple of days to prevent this from happening again. The initial problem was made worse because the upstream datacentre provider working with our host accidentally disabled an entire IP range containing most customer servers rather than just the one being attacked.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this issue may have caused and thank all our clients and candidates for their understanding and patience.
