akensai Says: Just lost a $10,000 business client, outage right when I’m explaining how uptime is indefinite. Good job.


— Excellent uptime comrades!


Scott Says:

OMG! I just lost a $100K client! Thanks Dreamhost!


—And not a single fuck was given that day

Typical Dreamhost worker; she looks worse than Girlvinyl

Dreamhost.com Webhosting company often pimped by girlvinyl and ghettofinger . Users include scarlet, twid jeremyjx, packetgrinder and imaybeparanoid. Provided services for girlvinyl.com, encyclopediadramatica, kittenwar, bsdiva.com, earlegorgo.com, Elloell and others. It is superior to Godaddy, but then again, what isn't?

Note: DreamHost Does Not Obey The Law

Oh noes, we have a major outage! The experts at Dreamhost tech support had the fun spending more than 4 hours trying to mitigate attacks from their own systems. Due to this, people have lost money and several contracts from this

Update 4:40pm PST: Our network engineers rebooted the core router at our LAX facilities but our providers are still flapping. It appears that the LAX facility may be stabilized but we’re experiencing high load on our core routers as a result of all the BGP flapping. We are still investigating the issue but current traffic patterns possibly indicate an attack on our network. -John



For those who don't know, flapping occurs when a router alternately advertises a destination network via one route then another (or as unavailable, and then available again) in quick sequence. A closely related term is interface flapping where an interface on a router has a hardware failure that will cause the router to announce it alternately as "up" and "down".

Since then, it was determined that 4chon was the cause of the attack, so anyone that had a shitty blog hosted with Dreamhost can direct their anger with them. In fact, they've gotten kicked off of Dreamhost because of it.

[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> Hello,
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> We had a rather serious network outage due to a DDOS and our admins have
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> indicated that this has come in the form of an attack to your site
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> 4chon.net.  Our admins had to null route your ip during the attack to
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> stem some of the attack.  We specifically cannot support such sites that
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> are targets of DDOS attacks on our network, especially considering the
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> outage that occurred that affected all customers.  The site 4chon.net
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> must be moved to another host.
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> Thanks!
[01:13:22] <~savetheinternet> Justin K

Apparently they pissed off Ryan enough to get him to attack Dreamhost, and you don't want to piss off Ryan

Here, STI denies spamming and then gets called out about people blaming the JIDF for the attacks



Rick Says:

Maybe this was just a practice run for these guys


—some dumbass who thinks Iran might be behind it


GregNotCraig Says:

Man, you people are a whiny bunch. I’ve been with DH since 2004. thick n thin. Ups and downs. Shit like this happens. Remember the Amazon servers last week and how many “major players” were dead in the water? If you lost a [insert random thousand dollar amount here] client because of the down time…you should be savvy enough to tell them that there is NO such thing as 100% uptime.

Suck it up, you fraking crybabies.


—Someone not being a whining cunt about the attacks


Savetheinternet Says:

Doesn’t matter, I’m bailing out on Dreamhost.

They negotiated with terrorists.

We have backup VPSs at Hostgator and I guess that “significant provider” is willing to host us.

In Song

Nobody knows where my Website has gone
Dreamhost left the same time
Why was he holding her box
When he’s supposed to be my provider

It’s my internet, and I’ll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you

Playin’ my pr0ns, keep fapin’ all night
Leave me alone for a while
‘Till Dreamhost’s dancin’ with me
I’ve got no reason to smile

It’s my internet, and I’ll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you
