I need to change domain name. wongablog.co.uk regularly suffers massive spam attacks, and the resulting load takes down my site and anything else on the server (sites somewhat more important than little personal blogs). Individual attacks can be dealt with fairly quickly, but every new batch of zombie machines require individual attention, and it’s never going to stop.
The easiest way of dealing with this is to upgrade to a ridiculously powerful server with lots of bandwidth. This costs a lot, though, and isn’t an option.
The other solution is to ditch wongablog.co.uk and set up some kind of bot-befuddling forwarding system so links still work. This is my host’s recommendation, and certainly seems sensible. So I need to set up a new domain in the not-too-distant future.
wordofwonga.co.uk and worldofwonga.co.uk have both been suggested, or I could just go back to the old wandwaver.co.uk. I’ve a couple of ideas, but nothing that particularly grabs me. Obviously I’m not asking people to put any effort into this, but should anything happen to occur, please let me know…thanks muchly 🙂
