    It got digested.

    The literal message you got indicates the front end servers are up but the backend is down.

    To me that means they still own the DNS (IE the site is active).

    Could be hacked, could be temporary.

    If it is a hack they should put some message on the frontend servers in a day or two.

    They really should expect errors like this and post an "The website encountered an expected error" message then describe what the error is.

    Found it:

    UFO Digest Moving To America For Better Internet Security

    UFO Digest Moving to America


    After Repeated Hacking on its server in Canada., UFO Digest is migration south to the United States for greater internet security, something which the Canadian service provider has not been able to provide.

    Cloudflare seems to be the favorite solution to DDOS and that is easy to get in the US.

    I notice a number of websites use cloudflare and resolve to local addresses (DC area).

    The DC area is MAE East and server farm heaven so that isn't too surprising.

    The hacking problem Nivek might be more familiar with.

    There has to be software to recognize the hacking strings and autoban the IP addresses.

    So much for that old saying, "Canadians are too nice..." :Whistle:

    Nobody said the National Security Police State was entirely devoid of positives.
