Woke up to no email this morning and the following from their web site:

*Following an extortion attempt, HostUS is currently experiencing sustained
large-scale DDOS attacks against a number of locations. The attacks were
measured in one location at 300Gbps. In another location the attacks
temporarily knocked out the entire metropolitan POP for a Tier-1 provider.
Please be patient. We will return soon. Your understanding is appreciated.
