    Problems with GeoExpat Website

    Slow loading or down, example of down message:



    Web server is down
    The web server is not returning a connection. As a result, the web page is not displaying.

    Ray ID:
    Your IP address:
    Error reference number: 521
    Cloudflare Location: Hillsboro

    The site seems less relaible versus the past. The server is offshore now?

    Short interruptions while the CCP Firewall is being set up for HK. This will take a few weeks, so no worries about the future.

    Filter to keep out the riff-raff... looks like it is only partially working at the moment though.

    For whatever reason - the server loads have been unusually high for the last couple of weeks.

    Investigating...

    https://www.cloudflare.com/learning/...a-ddos-attack/ ? Someone or some group doesn't like your site?

    Chances are this is some code / config changes I made about 4 weeks ago.

    I tend to do more damage than the collective of well wishers we have out there.

    I'm sure you will get it right. Just thought the site is being targeted by organizations or person with malicious intent. lol

    Seems unlikely. One is a Windows AD vulnerability, the other isn't reported as affecting Asia.
