The first thing you should do is check your server's bandwidth graphs. You can do this through our control panel by visiting your Bandwidth Statistics page and viewing the past 24 hours or even the past hour alone. If you see that your traffic has spiked and the port is fully saturated (or close to it), you are most likely under attack.
Identify and Block Attackers
If you have some connectivity to your server, you can attempt to block some of the attack by blocking IP addresses having several connections to your server. Use the following command to list your active connections by IP address:
You can then use IP Tables, or the firewall of your choice, to block all traffic from that IP address.
This would cause all TCP and UDP traffic to be dropped from this specific IP address (represented by x.x.x.x).
