WooThemes server under DDoS attack for 28 hours and counting, WPBundle launch postponed


According to their Twitter account and website, WooThemes has been on the receiving end of a DDoS (or Distributed Denial of Service) attack for nearly 30 hours now. The WooThemes site was moved to a new server with a DDoS firewall early this morning, but the attacks have continued.

Today was intended to be the launch of WPBundle, a new source of WordPress themes. The launch has been indefinitely postponed until the servers are stable again, as WPBundle relies on WooThemes’ checkout and support systems. WPBundle and WooThemes first¬†announced the partnership back in August.

WooThemes is hosted with VPS.net, who they say are doing a great job working with them to stop the attack. The exact source of the attack has not yet been determined. Until the attack is stopped, WooThemes has set up a P2 blog to update users on the downtime.

  1. Some theme providers are under attack too: dailyWP.com, theme-junkie.com, vasthtml.com … Any more? Who did this?

  2. Everyone who is having issues with these ddos attacks needs to look at their hosting providers. They are usually at fault.

    I suggest you take a look at this hosting company:


    Yes I am an affiliate so use my FULL affiliate link. Doing so will allow you to use the coupon “DECEMBER95” giving you a 95% discount off your first month! It dosnt get better then this.

  3. I suck guys. I tried the company ddosprotect.com and they ripped me off for $600 STAY AWAY FROM the link above. I would delete it but can’t edit the post.

    ddosprotect.com and staminus.net are both a scam. Same company.

  4. Dear Brandon, I would like to know how could we ripped you off $600 and how possibly you can say you tried us?

    As a new company we know all out clients, and all of them are happy. I know you are not our client, nor we never did anything bad to both – our affiliates or clients. As of now we have only superior reviews, and with $9.95 for cheapest package we are the most affordable DDOS protected solution.

    Our coupon code is SAVE15 – 15% off for live.

    I feel really sad to see our competition trying to shut us down – but the problem is there is so many good review about our superb service so it is up to clients to decide, not anonymous user posting bad things about us.

    Kind regards,

    Bart Boch
