Inbound/outbound Alibaba Cloud block

Due to repeat DDoS attacks toward our network originating from Alibaba Cloud, we are dropping all Alibaba Cloud traffic until further notice. This policy is implemented at our network edge and cannot be removed or overridden. If your application requires communication with Alibaba Cloud, we suggest using a VPN/proxy/jumpbox or moving to an alternate host.

  • We regret to inform that following further mass abuse, we are reinstating this block and enforcing it permanently. This decision is finite and will not receive future reviews. If your application requires communication with Alibaba Cloud, we suggest using a VPN/proxy/jumpbox or moving to an alternate host. Thank you for your understanding.

  • We've temporarily lifted this block pending a future review.
