Dreamhost?...

The site currently isn't being hosted by Dreamhost. From the looks of it they're being hosted by oneandone.net

If we were still on Dreamhost the site would be taken offline for a week like last time..

And you're better off directing your anger at that dickless turd that thinks DDOSsing a site is fun, and keeps at it for like a week straight already.

It's not that simple.

A 20k botnet will take down fairly large online casino operations, so this sort of dedicated server business is no match.  Defending against DDOS can be summed up in one word:  Money.  That's the only real defense you have, the cost is immense for the deep pipes you have to get backing you for the duration of the storm.

Getting the guys ISP involved is the only way to stop this.

well the botnet's is made up of already compromised computers...  My suggestion is to post the IPs of the attacking computers.  Worst case the computers OS is broken and they have a computer tech come by and fix it.. he removes the botnet and now that person is no longer unknowingly committing a crime

The attacks began with the server going 100% of line and the load average on 100.00+, the fact that came back up and was working for the last week (yes, in a kinda crappy way) was only due to some liberties taken with apache's config and creative firewalling. Its not as simple as shouting at someone in support, and its not easy to tell apart bots from normal traffic without hours of time spent with wireshark.

Do you honestly want to sift through thousands upon thousands of IPs?
