Hello. I'm getting this error. Possible DD-OS report. Could someone explain to me what is happening, What can I do to prevent it from happening again and how to fix it?

We have just received a HUGE (over 3GB/s incoming traffic) DDoS attack targeting the Server #9. Our CISCO guard firewall was unable to handle such attack, so one of the server IP address - was disabled (all the rest websites on this server are working fine).<br /> <br /> If your website is using this IP (due to unique IP rotation system only 3% websites are using this IP) it will be unavailable for the next 6 hours. As soon attack will subside, this IP address will be enabled and your website will start working again. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Please do not create multiple identical threads, thanks!
