As part of running a website you may run into attempts to disrupt your service. In the last few days, starting 10.04.2021 with intensity, there were several attemps to block access to this website. It appears it was a small botnet with a maximum of 2k unique IPs per hour, however generating quite substantial traffic and causing a challenging situation.
