@FenGar @zxlin @BoxOfficeHost - As far as we know so far, it's a lethal dDoS attack and we've had to nullroute all traffic. Will update ASAP

This issue may take 12-18hours before it is fully resolved. No customers will be charged for their package during this downtime. Apologies.

Leaseweb, Rapidspeeds hosting partner, has said there is no issue on the Rapidspeeds network.

Somethings not adding up, especially when coupled with this, filed today

UPDATE: http://www.wjunction.com/9-dedicated/47469-rapidspeeds-com-100mbps-1gbps-unmetered-dedicated-servers-%A395-nl-us-115.htm

So Yeah!
There is a Legal Discussion going on between leaseweb and RapidSpeeds,
Depending on it they will decide if they can give back us our servers or not. Also they told me that this has been going around from the past 1 week. We can order new servers directly from them and they can do the best price for us. I can make out , servers are not going to come online, but then the Account manager didn't mention anything as such, since he said its out of his hands.

So Yeah! We have some chance of getting our Data Back!

------------------

So it looks like there something going on between leaseweb and RapidSpeeds. Cause RapidSpeeds are not talking to anyone this is not helping anyone, and makes them look bad, very bad!

I received this email from LeaseWeb regarding Rapidspeeds:

Dear RapidSpeeds Customer,

On 28 November 2011, RapidSpeeds informed LeaseWeb of its decision to suspend its operations. RapidSpeeds also confirmed that it could no longer meet its obligations to LeaseWeb. In accordance with LeaseWeb's rights, LeaseWeb subsequently suspended its services to RapidSpeeds.

LeaseWeb has been provided with information by RapidSpeeds that suggests that RapidSpeeds will likely default completely. LeaseWeb regrets this turn of events and would like to offer you a solution that may assist in minimizing the impact of RapidSpeeds' demise to your operation.

Without any obligation to do so (legal or otherwise), and without incurring or accepting any obligation or liability or offering any support service or service level guarantees, LeaseWeb will temporarily restore access to RapidSpeeds' infrastructure, hosted with LeaseWeb.

Access will be restored at 14.00 hours CET today (30th November 2011) and will be blocked again at 16.00 hours CET this Friday (2nd December 2011).

During the aforementioned timeframe you may remove your data from the servers and/or create a copy thereof. We will also gladly accept you as a customer. Should you wish to become a customer with LeaseWeb, we request that you take note of the following:

LeaseWeb has been providing RapidSpeeds with network and server capacity for over a year. If you move your servers to the LeaseWeb network you can be assured of the same network quality and speeds as before. You will also benefit from our 24/7 support staff and our state-of-the-art datacenters in both Europe and the United States.

Please note that LeaseWeb will not take over - or otherwise become a party to - your contract with RapidSpeeds. You would be entering into a new contract with LeaseWeb, on the basis of LeaseWeb's documentation. A copy of LeaseWeb's standard documentation can be found at http://www.leaseweb.com/en/legal. In connection herewith, we point out that LeaseWeb's services are prepaid.

After receiving your request to become a customer with LeaseWeb, we will (i) email you a short questionnaire to gather the information needed to locate your services within RapidSpeed's infrastructure hosted in LeaseWeb's network, and (ii) guide you through our online order procedure, or send you a quote for your acceptance. Please note that LeaseWeb's default solution will be to offer you LeaseWeb's standard services, to which you can transfer the data presently stored on RapidSpeeds' infrastructure. On a per case basis LeaseWeb may, upon request, review the possibility to transfer or migrate your RapidSpeeds' service(s) to our network.

After the order procedure has been completed, and after receiving the requested information and payment of the first monthly installment for our service charges, we will do our best to get your service(s) online again as soon as possible. Please note that this may take longer than usual (a few days), due to the large number of customers affected by RapidSpeeds' demise.

For the avoidance of doubt: LeaseWeb will, contrary to the information circulated by RapidSpeeds, not take over RapidSpeeds. We furthermore point out that LeaseWeb is not in any way responsible for RapidSpeeds' demise. We also point out that LeaseWeb is not in any way liable for the (financial) damages that might occur to RapidSpeeds or RapidSpeeds' customers. Finally, please note that we are not in the habit of dealing directly with our resellers' customers. The fact we are offering the solution set forth above is an exception to our standard practice.

We trust that we have sufficiently informed you. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via [email protected]

With kind regards,

Vincent Steenhuis
Sales Manager LeaseWeb
