I doubt that your host would have moved your website to another server before the attack started
I guess they would - the upgrade is not free I have to pay for the high performance server. Also the upgrade is only temporarily.
At least I had an all time high in hits yesterday.
1,4 million hits instead of the normal 35,000
40,000 MB of traffic instead of the normal 200 MB
Today I received another email. They would continue the attacks until I payed. The next wave hit a few hours ago, so far everything is working fine. Since the amount they want is relativly low I am probably not the only one they are targeting. Seems to me like routine bulk business.
