Is it good to keep index2.php instead of index.php for a long while.

    I recently changed my index.php file to index2.php and put a redirect html on to index.php to stop a http flood attack.

    I have very high rankings on my site and want to know if I keep it like that for a while will my seo be affected a lot?

    Did you use a 301 redirect or did you use a filtered 302?

    Try to use htaccess or ip blocking to stop the issue.
    Changing index.php is risky - if there is even a small error in it.
    I do not know how you are setting up, it is possible to setup, but then its like google has to recognize new page and changing structure of index is not a very good idea.
