Hi all,

I am with Namecheap. Recently, someone has been attacking my shared server and causing my websites to go offline.

The attacker claims to be using fiddler to compose and send rather large packets of data which overload the server thus causing 508 resource issues.

I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue, and how would you go about fixing it? I can fix it, but only be blocking the attacking IP (which is time consuming).

My resources are perfectly normal otherwise, I do not max out at all unless being attacked. I don’t have major sites, but I do have a couple which exceed 200k page loads per month.
