I didn't know where to post it because webdev is not really my forte and i'm not sure as to how you reference these things.
A site I use is currently down as is every site on their (database/server? :/), and I can't tell if the db is down (?) or if they are being DDoSed.
Again, I just want to know for common knowledge.
Like for example how would you check if it was being ddosd if you are not the owner?
I tried pinging the site and it timed out, and my friend told me that means it is being DDoSed but I'm not sure.
Thanks for any help
