I cannot access my blogs at:
both hosted at Network Solutions, Incorporated, since 9pm EST. It’s now 4 am EST and the blogs are still down. I don’t know if my blog(s) has/have been hacked or my Web site is part of a more general outage. Could anyone try to get to my sites?
I have a more general question – where can I run a secure WordPress blog? I’m using Version 2.0.1 (the one before the latest security patches, I think that’s the version), with the MW theme. Is this the best combination, for security?
I have tried to work with Network Solutions to fix this, but have not had any success so far. Here’s my story:
I called NSI three times. The first time, the support person entered my problem into the support database, gave me a ticket number, and said I would be contacted in “1 to 3 days”.
That was not satisfactory to me. I called again, got another support person, who said I would be contacted in 24 hours. I asked him to get to my site (he’s in the Philippines), and he was able to get to it. That’s why I’d like you to see if you can access my blogs.
By this time, I thought it would be good to ftp my files from their server, but discovered that the ftp site was down too. So I called Network Solutions back to add that piece of information to the problem ticket. I gave them the IP address I was trying to ftp to, and they said it was being worked on. They knew about the IP address and used the word “emergency” – which is why I think my site was attacked. It could be, of course, part of a more general attack on Network Solutions’ Web server.
I am not satisfied with their response. I think 3 days (perhaps more?) of downtime is too long. Is that a reasonable expectation? That’s why I’m asking if there are more reliable alternatives.
Thank you very much for any help you can provide.
