TheTYP host appears to be coming back online.  Please let me know if you still see any services not functioning properly and I’ll investigate immediately.  If you’d like more information about what happened, please read this article from CNET.
 
Hosting provider Codero was working to get the Web sites of thousands of its customers back up this morning after a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that targeted one or more of the sites it hosts.
 
About 5,000 servers in its Phoenix data center were affected, which meant slowdowns or outages for at least that many customers, Ryan Elledge, chief operating officer at Codero, told CNET. Most of the servers would be operating normally "very shortly," he said around 10:40 a.m. PT. He could not say how many customers total were impacted.
Initially, the company thought the problem was due to issues with one of its upstream providers, but that turned out not to be the case, he said.
"It was related to a DoS attack," he said. "Obviously, one of our customers has made somebody very unhappy. No doubt about that."
It's unclear at this time who was targeted or who is behind it.
 
"We were receiving more than 1.5 million packets per second in the attack. It paralyzed our core routers, and our upstream providers were unable to pinpoint where the target IPs were," he said. "We assume the attack is still on. We're not routing traffic to the offending block (of IP addresses), so we're not able to tell if it's still going or not."
The company reported problems beginning about 7:30 a.m. PT. "We are experiencing network issues affecting part of our PHX data center," the company posted on its Twitter page. "Engineers are working with upstream providers."
 
"Another attempt is now under way at routing traffic to specific segments of our network," Codero tweeted around 9:30 a.m. PT.
Codero, which has points of presence in Irvine, Calif.; Denver; Chicago; and Ashburn, Va., is migrating a data center from San Diego to Phoenix. Only the Phoenix location was affected by the attack, Elledge said.
 
Updated 10:49 a.m. PT with more details from Codero COO.
