DDOS attack

Many apologies to anyone struggling with Textise today. Unfortunately, some idiot has been using it as a proxy for a denial of service attack on booking.com, causing server and application errors.

My hosting company have had to throttle Textise to protect other sites on their servers and, at the moment, I’m trying to persuade them to remove the throttling because I’m now blocking booking.com, which should stop the problem.

Once again, many apologies. Hopefully normal service will be resumed very soon.

Update 23:49 BST: Textise (and SEOtext) working fine now. I’ve had to block booking.com to stop the DDOS attacks. Annoying but it has worked. Sorry for any inconvenience.
