My blog was experincing some outage last night. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The IP block my site belongs to was experiencing heavy DDOS attacks so the data center was forced to bring down the specific network range till the issue was resolved. Official response from my hosting company below,

>  <span class="mediumtext">Update on </span><span class="mediumtext">xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xxx</span> <span class="mediumtext">and </span><span class="mediumtext">xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xxx</span> <span class="mediumtext">Experiencing Connection Issues</span>

> We've got the latest update on this issue. Currently upstream of data center is blocking the IPs which are determined to cause the DDOS attack. Once the data center receive notification from upstream confirmed the blockage, they will release these 2 blocks of IP.
