IS MY WEB SITE BEING ATTACKED ? Xclose
Today a large part of the Internet is run by criminals, semi-criminals, plain unscrupulous, half-witted and totally ignorant and this problem is increasing.

If your site is down, unusually slow or you are seeing large traffic without a good reason you might be subject of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. The first place to look is the traffic data in your cPanel - you can look in Latest Visitors or, better, download a compressed archive of Raw Access Logs.
If you see robot-made identical, simultaneous connections like the ones below contact us without delay.
