ssgumby - Yes - I may have ticked off a competitor. My site has been hacked numerous times - too many to count this last 12 months. I am constantly (24/7) running my own in-house systems to check and re-upload corrupt files. So the hate is there for sure.
Tracert is interesting. The host is a shared host account - and a tracert thedomain.com lands me on anotherdomain.com on the same account which I thought a bit strange.
Yes aswell - I was certain already that my traffic would have stopped in AWstats - unless they were doing something REALLY REALLY FANCY. So the fact it is still showing the traffic - is a positive sign its not a DNS problem or attack.
Stout - I agree that 1 sale a day is not a good measure. Theres always a "but" - I run 10 different sites targetting the same product but different ways of naming it. These sites between them get
1 - sale a day on the main site (the one I have problems with)
6 sales a month between the other 9
Those 6 would appear to be still coming in - so the lull - if this is the answer - seems to only affect the main site and not the other 9.
I will have to buy something myself - but I want to do it on another ISP to be sure.
"Ask the host to clean it off....." - this host doesnt know how to pick their nose - never mind clean up a server :(
