How do hosting facilities and their networks work? Host companies please respond
ok just to set up here i have a VPS from almost EVERY USA (and a couple uk) company that advertises on this site. i have 25 VPS servers. i have noticed something i dont understand, and i hope someone who works for a company can answer this for me. the situation i have noticed is some of your networks are blocked by other popular websites. i imagine this is due to abuse from a previous customer that was without your knowledge. But it stops my vps form being able to interact with the website. here is where it gets complicated and i cant connect all the dots. lets say hosting company X and Y both host in Chicago company X maybe blocked buy Y isnt so i imagine its different hosting facilities. i will post up some cities and the beginning of the IP range because certain ranges are always blocked so im thinking entire facilities are blocked because the IP range the common gate is associated with for the building is blocked? so if i could figure out if the facility is blocked then i can ask before i sign up and therefore stop wasting time setting a vps up only to find out its blocked then bug you for a refund or to switch me to a different city
so here are some cities from various hosts and the beginning of the ip ranges that are always blocked regaurless of host company scranton 173 blocked miami 184 blocked dallas 108 blocked chicago 184 blocked chicago 64 blocked los Angeles 64 blocked kansas 63 blocked houston 174 blocked
and just because i know people will accuse me of being up to no good i will explain what i do. i use my VPS to set up private proxy's for individuals to use at work or home or wherever they like. and then they complain that hey i order this service from me but they cant go to this site or that site.
