Aquabid

Has anyone had issues getting on aquabid.com? I have not been able to get there for the past two day and was wondering if anyone knew of any issues going on over there?

It's my understanding that Aquabid is under a concentrated Denial of Service attack from unknown parties. The following was posted on another site that I frequent:

Regarding recent problems with AquaBid.

AquaBid is under a concentrated DoS (Denial of Service) attack by unknown parties. This means it is bombarded by literally millions of malicious requests that tie up the server, making getting in and using the site very difficult. As of a couple days ago there were over 71,000,000 attempted logons just this month. This is a difficult attack to counter, because it is hard to tell attacking requests apart form legitimate users. Mark is doing his best to counter this, and AquaBid is alive and trying to be well!

Tank On, Mike-
60g Marineland Community, Finnex Planted+ 24/7, Silica (pool filter) sand.
10g, 29g, & 37g fry grow out tanks, 110g stock tank.


What came first, the chicken or the egg. It was the egg, but not the egg from a chicken.

That's a damn shame. I spend way too much time surfing that site just to see what's out there.

I just tried to get there and was able to get to their front page but that was it. When I clicked on a category I got the 522 response.

I could access it yesterday fairly easily, can still access it today but each page takes up to a minute to load.

There was only one catch and that was Catch-22.

I've tried it 4-5 times throughout the past week and I was never able to get through. I tried on my work computer as well. Hopefully they can fix the site. I've bought fish 4 times from there and I always had good experiences.

Still works for me.

But yeah, all my experiences (buying and selling) have been positive! I hope they get the issue fixed, aquabid is a good source.
