Problems with Server 1

The few people still on Server 1 might have noticed it already, but the main ip address has been blocked by the datacenter today.

The issue is a repeated heavy DDOS attack on the server hitting over 1Gbit/s. This caused them to block the main server ip address to prevent further network problems. Unfortunately I haven't found the target yet. If anyone has an idea which site might have been targeted (including if your own site might have been targeted), please tell.

In any case, please all create/download a complete account backup. You can do so here: . Only the main server ip address was blocked, the others are still working ok.

My current plan is to order a new server and move the accounts to it. That would also solve the ongoing issues. However I would only move the accounts of active people in the hope that the targeted site was one of those.

For a time estimate. It can take a few days unfortunately, my apologies. With a lot of luck tomorrow evening, but not very likely.

I hope that this issue would be solved soon. I have also requested for a sub-domain name change a very long time ago but it has not been handled with yet. The request number is 425. Could you please take a look at my sub-domain change request if you have the time? Thank you Bondings.

@twotrophy, I'll try to handle the requests this weekend.

@cybersa, I have moved the Frihost server 1 accounts to the new server and I think they should be (mostly) working by now.

Hi Bondings,

Once again, thank you for the great support. I'm sure even paid hosting might not rush out a fix that soon. Anyway, most of my sites are back up. Just that if you could set the php.ini to not show E_STRICT mode then all my sites should be back up.

Currently the E_STRICT mode is showing a ton of errors on my main site.

Thanks and regards,

Thank you Bondings for the reply. Could you please also cancel my domain name request as I no longer want me as well? Thank you.
twotrophy on Sun Aug 11, 2013 9:26 am
Thanks Bondings. My Website has done well and is in great shape. Including cPanel. All of it is SUPER FAST!

Just a small request if it is possible. Enable FrontPage Extensions?

Thanks for your support.

Hope you will take a look at domain request.

Perhaps Bondings is too busy to handle my sub-domain request change last week or it was because of another reason/other reasons. I hope that it would be handled soon.

I had the same issue
anyavacy on Tue Nov 19, 2013 8:27 pm
Hey, I'm having issues with my hosting where it's completely down in what seems to be like all the time. On Server 1. Any ideas?
LostOverThere on Fri Nov 22, 2013 8:48 am
My Website is on Server 1 and it is up and running most of the time. At one time it was down quite often, but Server 1 lately has been in better shape than Server 2, on which Frihost Forum is situated. Server 2 has been down more regularly than Server 1 and for much longer periods of time. As far as I know Bondings is planning to change both Servers once he has time to do so.
deanhills on Fri Nov 22, 2013 4:39 pm
Looks like server 1 is down again.
coolclay on Sat Dec 21, 2013 3:09 am
@Coolclay. It went down late last night (GMT +4) .... and was down until early morning hours. Happened during sleeping time in Belgium, and active day time in the US. Must have been fixed early this morning Belgium time - probably late night sleeping time where you are, and has been running OK for a few hours now.
deanhills on Sat Dec 21, 2013 3:44 pm
Cool, thanks Dean! I had a minor panic attack!
coolclay on Sat Dec 21, 2013 7:20 pm
