It looks more like a server problem to me. For some reason it doesn't have the resources to service requests. Why, I couldn't say. It could be something else running on the server, it could be a programming error, it could even be a low-grade DoS attack.

That address is registered to Unit-IS Ltd, based in Odessa. They run a data centre so probably one of their machines has been compromised.

The first responses seem to be assuming that your server had been compromised and was being used for a DoS attack.

DDoS is Distributed DoS - rather than one host attacking dozens are used. The usual source is a "botnet" - malware infiltrated onto a large number of unsuspecting people's computers, enabling remote control for various malign purposes.

Re: Email Sidenote
If you have a client that will let you see the headers you should be able to work out where the delay was.
