    Recently I registered a domain that was expired. used to belong to an embassy in china. My web hosting sent me an email informing that the site was taking "too many resources"

    Here's a picture of what it looked like,

    Why would someone ddos this? It was just a 1 page blog set up - the metric aren't even that great and I can't see how there would be so much traffic or an interest in ddosing it. Any comments?

    Didn't say anything in my email, just told me that it was "GPU" resources.

    Well all of that is quite meaningless... what makes you think it's being ddos'd?

    Try using a free cloudflare account for it, that should mitigate some of the DDoS burden.

    Well, the web hosting took down that site- title of the message was : "ToS Fair Use - Web Server Overload"

    Home Page:
    Maybe this site was bookmarked by many Chinese people, or there are still live links to it from some popular Chinese sites. You know, there is a lot of people who live in China, if they decide your site worth a visit it will be quite a ddos.

    Try to make your site pure html, without database, php and other shit, this might be enough. Or not.
