(Note: As of May 14th, 2019 we have not received any more attacks.)
Thank you for your interest in 1776 Hosting.
If you are a VPS customer, you should be aware that this service is a hardline freedom of speech provider and a small company. We are frequently the target of DDoS attacks and port scans on our IP ranges. You should host here if you need speech protection more than you need 100% uptime, and you should not host professional services on our VPSs that can be attacked by bad actors.
If you are a larger customer looking for management or colocation, I can work something out for you.
When more can be done to mitigate these attacks I will let people know, but for the time being I can only help potential customers make informed purchase decisions. The techniques used to mitigate denial of service attacks are expensive and out of our budgetary constraints for the time being.
