Over the weekend, the www site went offline for a while because we had exceeded our bandwidth allocation on the server. Once we discovered this, we worked with SiteGround, our hosting provider, to get us back online and begin to find the source of the additional resource usage.

As a precaution, we have added ImpressCMS domains to CloudFlare and set it to aggressively scan all requests for the sites. The first time you visit the sites from a new IP address or device/browser, you may see a banner about your browser being checked. As you visit the sites, your browser should be identified and later visits will not have these delays.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to have a better solution to this situation soon.

when I want to visit de site in the way I always do, using www.....
I get an error message that this site is not available.
Entering the site with only http:// does still work.

I just wanted to mention it because I think many people are using www. when typing the URL. They now may think ImpressCMS is offline

I've tried it with both and they seem to be working at this time (and from the USA).

We're also being a bit more aggressive at banning IP addresses that exhibit malicious behavior. If you get banned or having trouble accessing the site, send one of us an email, please!

The security settings have been lowered, as the force of the attack seems to have diminished. The screen shouldn't be shown anymore.
