Techteam.gr does not work from abroad?

Quite strangely I try to connect to http://www.techteam.gr/ from abroad (UK) and I cannot. The result I get is similar to blocking someone using a firewall.
However, when connecting from inside Greece, it simply works.

Techteam.gr, why does this happen?
Update (Jun 07): Apparently there is still some blocking at some times during the day.

  1. Hello simos,

    last weeks we had some large attacks from people from UK and some other countries and this had as a result the block of specific IP ranges, that belong to foreign ISPs. Usually the people that connect to Techteam.gr outside Greece is less than 0.5% of the total visitors, but that this small percentage cause a server load 1200% higher than the total visitors from Greece (99,5% of the visitors). It is obviously an attack.

    As soon as the attacks stop, access from the blocked IP ranges will be normal again.

  2. Thanks for the reply.

    I hope the problem gets solved soon.

  3. the same, i think, is happening right now

  4. Sadly yes, non-.gr access is forbidden now.
    I am not quite sure of the nature of the attacks that originate from abroad.
    Are they e-mail harvesters or search engine bots?

  5. Το πρόβλημα εκείνο ήταν πριν από δύο χρόνια. Τώρα νομίζω ότι δεν υπάρχει πρόβλημα σύνδεσης με το techteam.gr.
