One of my customers has his website hosted on chicagowebs.com. They are down since at least 12 hours now, does anybody know what's going on?

Never heard of chicagowebs.com, but I pinged from my local comp as well as my servers at different locations, but couldn't resolve the host name.

It seems there was never a site for chicagowebs.com

[google.com...]

So I won't be able to do much digging.

But from Internic, I got NS1.CHICAGOWEBS.COM with IP 64.27.162.3

Ping to the nameserver shows

PING NS1.CHICAGOWEBS.COM (64.27.162.3) from xxxxx : 56(84) bytes of data.
From 216.64.206.129 icmp_seq=7 Time to live exceeded
From 216.64.206.129 icmp_seq=9 Time to live exceeded

IN case this gets active, consider changing the web hosting provider. Sticky me for some good web hosting companies.

Was reading about this on a web hosting forum this morning. They are experiencing what they claim is one of the biggest DOS attacks ever recorded (700 plus machines going after their open ports), and have got Cisco people working on things.

They are also awaiting the arrival of some 'Attack mitigation' device, which should begin to bring things back up again.

I have my sites on 3 different hosting providers and all of them are well up and I presume even they might have been the targets after having heard about Microsoft's site down for 1 & half hour.

C'mon, a massive and sustained DOS attack is going to hurt pretty much anyone. It may not be easy, but cut them some slack, eh? Remember the not too distant Slammer weekend?

Thanks for all the info, very helpful. I just took over the site recently, and the owner didn't want to change the hosting, that's why I never moved the site. I have to say though that until this "attack" they were doing very well.

Okie Mat, lets hope for the best :)
