Face of the company

What an amazing service
People should really share it around!

I'll have to make a little icon for the header bar of Anypony for mlpchan, next year some time.

Woo! One year of providing email services! Happy Birthday!

Regarding the site being down 3156

File: 1359122404337.png (53.01 KB, 763x1046, twilight_sparkle_2_0_by_stickf…)

Over the past several days, Anypony has been the target of a consistent DDOS attack. We're doing what we can to get the site back up, and hopefully it'll be up and running again by this evening or earlier. We apologize for any inconvenience, and Sammy (the Anypony admin) wrote about what's happening here:



Correcting this slightly: The site has been up for 6 minutes, and will hopefully stay up. All looks OK right now.


File: 1359126721025.gif (240.94 KB, 500x375, 1352090466596.gif)

And it is down again.


File: 1359132285154.png (136.22 KB, 669x595, 1354503187390.png)

Well, it's back online but the homepage doesn't load very well. If you want to log in, for the time being use https://anypony.com/no/
If that doesn't work, then that may be "normal" for the time being.

And we're back to being totally functional.

Awwweee down for me. I was excited to try it out sounds like a cool service! Bookmarked for later use.

Luv that tripfaggin!
You from /mlp/ bro?

Weird, the site is being a tad unresponsive at the moment. I can get it to load fairly easily though. Everything is still working from what I can see in the mod panel.

I used to lurk /mlp/ as anon a couple months back, then I decided it was shit and stopped going.


The DDoS attacks have subsided, due to the nature of the attacks there was nothing I could have done to protect us from them (UDP flood bouncing off my firewall in case you're cluey) will be getting CloudFlare soon that will help us out.

Also a backup email server to store mail when the main server goes offline is in the making.

Hang tight.


File: 1359646839010.png (372.34 KB, 1125x755, 1350359294696.png)

We are currently under DDoS again, we're looking into it and will try to have the site back online ASAP.


Please read my report on Anypony Email if you're interested as to what is happening.



File: 1359913346227.png (453.45 KB, 900x654, I can explain.png)

Ok, since that appears to be down, I'll tell what happened in TL:DR form
>hosting company null-routed the server because according to their ToS, they can do that if the site is using too much bandwidth (even if it's a DDoS you have no control over)
>Sammy is looking for a new hosting company, and it looks like the site may cost 3 times or more than normal (hopefully not that much, still looking)
>He hates having to ask, but it would help a lot to even get a couple dollars towards paying for the server when he finds a new host
>if you'd like to donate and help out, his paypal is [email protected]

Copypasta from the ponychan thread:

I will be buying a new VPS tomorrow, complete with two DDoS protection suites:
1) DNS based
2) Hardware based (at the firewall)
But because hardware based DDoS solutions only really work with protocols that have a connection (like TCP) I have also got a DDoS mitigation service that is tech support/systems admin based that will combat any rouge connections that get passed the hardware DDoS system.

The host has agreed that he will not terminate my account no matter how many attacks it comes under and he is confident that my setup will be able to beat the attacks I'm under and some.

On top of this, I have set up a backup MX record server with just as much protection as our main server so that if we have any problems with the main server (maintenance ect) all your mail will be kept and forwarded to you when its back online!

I think that's it for now, see you on the flip side!
I'll let you know of any more updates when available.

My mod email is @anypony, and as much as i want to support you guys, at some point i need to access my mail;
I'll be moving my mod email back to its original location, and watching this thread. When anypony is back up, I will move it back.

Good luck to you guys.


Ladies and gentlemen…

She's back and stronger than ever.

She's set up in a way that regardless of attacks mail will continue to arrive to your inbox.

Not only does she now have hardware DDoS protection but If under attack Anypony Email will sacrifice some things like the webmail front-end in order to keep the mail servers online, I have put mail getting delivered as the number one priority in this new system.

I am sorry it took so long, and I know a lot of you relied on Anypony, myself included, however I am confident her new system will keep her online.

Please check the Ponychan thread ( http://www.ponychan.net/chan/collab/res/33790+50.html ) for any other info, or our twitter: https://twitter.com/AnyponyEmail

I am still getting a 500 error when trying to access my mail…


Refresh the page a couple times, you can see a running list of bugs here: http://status.anypony.com/?p=40


Also make sure you're just trying from one computer, it seems that if you try logging on from two computers or in two tabs it breaks even worse
