It's possible that your site is experiencing a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack if you're seeing an unusually high volume of requests. According to the documentation, Deno Deploy has experienced similar incidents where a significant increase in request rate, about 10 times higher than normal, was indicative of a DDoS attack. During such an event, systems may initially reject requests to the affected domain and scale up to handle the load. If you're using Deno Deploy and suspect an attack, it's important to monitor your traffic and look for patterns that might indicate malicious activity, such as a surge in requests from specific IP addresses or geographic locations. Deno Deploy has mechanisms in place to respond to such incidents, including scaling up resources and implementing caching strategies to mitigate the impact. If you believe your site is under attack, you should take immediate action by analyzing your logs, setting up rate limiting if possible, and reaching out to your hosting provider or Deno Deploy support for assistance. They may be able to help you identify the attack and take steps to protect your site. 🦕
