差点以为 IXWebHosting 在国内被屏蔽了

因为外贸工作的关系,要做一个英文网站,而且放在国外。于是,今年初便购买了IXWebHosting的虚拟主机,虽然只是最低方案,却包含2个独立IP,1个免费域名注册,无限空间,无限流量,费用却只折合人民币400不到,想比国内的空奸商,真是天大的优惠。

IXWebHosting的主机一直用着都挺好,只是mysql不够稳定,虽然分配的共享IP早已经被屏蔽,独立IP却是非常安全的。昨天上午出了点小状况,真的让我以为IXWebHosting在国内被屏蔽了。

被一个客户在电话中告知,我的企业邮箱一直退信,真是五雷轰顶的感觉。虽然我用的不是IXWebHosting提供的邮局,可域名的DNS是IXWebHosting的。多次检查后发现,自己在IXWebHosting的网站,以及IXWebHosting的官网都无法打开。使用韩国和香港的代理都无法正常访问,使用美国的代理却可以正常访问,还以为是VPN出了问题。

刚才在站长之家看到 ixwebhosting遭到DDOS攻击 封锁大量中国IP,才明白是怎么回事,真是可恶的黑客。

下面是IXWebHosting官方对这次DDOS攻击事件的描述:

Incident Description:
Customers are experiencing intermittent slowness, poor connectivity, unresolved name servers, and FTP denial. This is caused by a DDoS attack. (Denial of Service) Our system administration department is blocking the offending IP addresses now. This attack is very large. After several attempts to isolate the source we had to temporarily block a large IP range from China, which is the source of the attack. This is a temporary block.

•12:02pm Update: Ok, we have a fix in (phew!)。 We are hopeful and monitoring at this point. Its not the type of situation like a hardware or software problem that we can say ‘fixed’ and its done, we have to watch a while and make sure there are no other cracks or holes that the attackers can get through. Please try your sites by IP and DNS and our support folks are standing by if you still need help. (our network engineers have collapsed and may be face down on their desks, though)。 Lisa Grice – Director of Customer Service

•11:06am Update: Just a clarification point, this is mostly affecting cps: 8,9,&10 (which for those of you that are curious is why ixwebhosting.com is still up–we are in the same datacenter, but not the same CPs)。 Also, we are making some progress, so some sites are coming back. Please also check your site by IP, if IP works, then DNS caching will just have to clear for you to see your sites.

Which Customers are Impacted?

Customers with accounts located on Control panels 8, 9, and 10.

How are Customers Impacted?

Domain name not resolving, Site Slowness, Poor FTP connectivity. .How often will we be updated?

Hourly Time to Resolution (ETA)

庆幸的是,昨天下午IXWebHosting便恢复了国内的IP封锁。



  1. 呵呵,说不定哪天就是个局域网了。前两天随手注册了两个.cn的域名,刚刚准备用了,才发现域名也要备案,不是说有了空间才备案的吗?晕
