SoftLayer currently being hit by a DDoS attack July 19, 2007 This post has received a ton of traffic lately. Please realize it is from 2007 and not a recent post. I am no longer a customer of SoftLayer. SoftLayer is my host and is currently being slammed by a DDoS attack so the website is up and down because of it. There’s a thread over on WebHostingTalk about the attack and watch that for more info.
