Anyone know what this Cloudflare page that started to pop-up, seems to be hijacking hotukdeals when I'm browsing the deals, saying something about errors trying to access hotukdeals website? .

Cloudflare is legit.

Looks as if the site may been under ddos attack. I've been getting ddos protection messages

Or just crashed...
Possibly HUKD has been hit with a DDOS attack

Yeah, its a sort of distributed access to the web site (in simple terms) you could think of it as a lot of clones of the ukhd site spread around the world to help speed up access to the site.

Its not cloudflare that is slowing things - it speeds things up. Something else is causing the problem and as suggested a ddos attack seems plausible.

I've passed on my information to hukd team, if that's of any help to anyone
I never understand the purpose of DDOS attack. It just seems so moronic.

Gotta say I think Andy wedge is possibly the only mod that try's to help and acknowledge questions. None of the others seem to, even on dedicated threads created by mod/admins.
