再也不见,ICDSoft

前两天被DDoS攻击,然后被香港ICDSoft清理出户。我试图恢复ICDSoft的账号,但是ICDSoft客服表示,这是他们的最终决定,必须终止对我的服务,并把余下的付款退给我。

鉴于最近,有包括我在内至少三个ICDSoft客户遭遇如此情况,我有理由猜测,很可能是某些恶劣的主机同行,使用这样的手段,打压ICDSoft。我以前还以为ICDSoft能抵抗DDoS攻击呢。

土木坛子现在总算恢复过来了。目前,网站存在于美国Media Temple主机,并使用了CloudFlare的CDN服务,希望目前的这个方案能继续存活下去。这个方案的缺点很明显,除了WP Super Cache缓存有问题外,CloudFlare的CDN在国内的访问情况会有不少问题,有的地方会很慢,甚至有的地方根本就无法解析网站的IP。

还有,IE 9以下的浏览器无法浏览土木坛子了,因为Media Temple和CloudFlare的SSL都是基于SNI,IE 9以下不支持。我看了一下网站统计,IE 9以下的用户数量极少(< 1%),毕竟能访问土木坛子的网民,与IE 9以下的浏览器还是交集较少(更新:据说是Windows XP系统下的IE浏览器不支持: SNI in Internet Explorer depends upon the SChannel system component shipped with Windows Vista. 但Windows XP下的Firefox浏览器支持)。

我目前没有其它更好的办法,让土木坛子存活于自由的互联网上,是首要任务。

Leonax博友炫耀式地写了一篇博文,批评了ICDSoft的这个政策。我把这个链接丢给了ICDSoft的客服,好歹也算与它再见时,反馈一点信息。客服回复我,解释了他们为什么需要这样做:

Thank you for the input. We had to run an automated translation on the text, as we do not speak Chinese.

We are sorry, but we offer shared hosting service. This means that we host multiple customers on a single machine. We cannot allow the service for all customers on the shared machine to be down in case of possible future DDoS attacks. Such attacks are a problem for any online businesses, and we, like any other provider, strive to contain such attacks, minimizing their effects. However, some attacks are extremely severe, and there is not much we can do to fight them effectively.

Best regards,

ICDSoft Support

虽然我尊重它目前的服务条款,但这并不能表示我不可以表达我的主张:

Hi,

Yes, my website and another two (another two bloggers) were recently affected. We are of course the victims just as ICDSoft. And we are now kicked out from ICDSoft. We do respect the TOS of ICDSoft.

I just want to tell you it is also a pity that you cannot fight against this kind of attack, and just simply kick the affected clients out. So this blogger (who works in Google) posted the post which to some extent criticizes ICDSoft.

I have been served by ICDSoft for several years, it was always so nice except for this time. I hope ICDSoft can improve it in the future, since I did like ICDSoft so much, and I even did not show any angry to ICDSoft on my blog though I do have the reason to do so.

Best regards,

Blogger of https://tumutanzi.com/

前一阵我还在想,每年要交两套主机的钱,一个ICDSoft,一个Media Temple,加起来也有2000多块人民币,现在好了,ICDSoft主动把我抛弃了。

这就像两个人谈恋爱,你爱着她,到头来一遇到一点外来的矛盾,对方直接把你抛弃。

那就只好再也不见了,ICDSoft。
