I may have to shutdown the site till the end of the month
« on: November 16, 2016, 11:03:09 pm »

out of no where I get this email from my provider saying I have hit the bandwidth for the month... calendar month..

looking at the server console - it hit 700Mbit down and 400Mbit up - for how long.. not sure...

But they want to charge me 50cents a gig till the end of the month... if it happens again.. just once... i could have to pay thousands of dollars ...

DDOS? I might have to shutdown the server

Paying $110 a month out of my own pocket, minus some small donations here and there is one thing... forking out thousands and thousands of dollars for a couple of hours of been DDOS'd.. fuck that....

Ideas?

"DDOS Protection" my ass!

I have to take measures into my own hands (surprise surprise)... I have installed limiting software on the server. 20Mbit Down and Up...

I hope this won't make the forum too slow... sigh
