    That sucks. I had lots of my sites get hacked a couple of months ago. At the suggestion of Bluehost, i signed up with sucuri.net (no, I'm not affiliated). They cleaned my sites within a few hours, and continuously monitor them. They make you pay for a year at a time, but it's worth it.

    Do a restore of all files and db, change all passwords and make sure you keep your site's plugins updated with latest fixes if you are using a cms like wordpress or joomla.

    The first thing i would do contact hosting company and block all ips other then yours. Then i would change all passwords starting with root. Then DB/FTP. Find the exploit / patch it up. Then check ur connection logs. Try to find out who did it.

    Are you using a CMS or is it an html based website? Try editing your htaccess file if you have ftp access. If you have a backup of the site just delete everything and reupload the backup, or simply call your hosting provider and have them do it for you. If you need any assistance, feel free to contact me and I can walk you through the process.

    Ya recently my main site (@softwarelint) got hacked someone injected malware on my site. when i m on hostwinds.! That thing takes a week to fix that malware was torgan! Well i must recommend you can use cloudflare CDN free version. It will help you to boost your website speed + will protect you from hackers! all the time with analytics.

    I hope you keep a backup if not you are in for a lot of work checking everything. The way I deal with being hacked is wipe the server and reupload from the last backup just so you can be sure there are no hidden back doors or anything.

    That host seems good but never forget any shared host you are on the same server as probably 100s of other sites and there is a good chance one of them is vulnerable to something.
