Different IP Address Group For Each Region In A Country
Sep 26, 2007
This might be a very broad question, but do they split up IP Address Groups for each region in countries? I know my country is quite small and all, but I was interested to know if IP addresses can be tracked for regions, more specifically in other countries.
Apache version > i don't know (i am a godaddy user) Apache platform > unix
I try to make a change to my current htaccess for now my url looks like> sitename.com/en/filename.ext..I want to get to have an address resembling this:
sitename.com/ca/en/filename.ext (in case the country is Canada and french language) sitename.com/us/en/filename.ext (in case the country is United State and English language) sitename.com/eu/en/filename.ext (in case the country is Europe and English language) sitename.com/en/filename.ext (in case the country is not mentioned and English language)
does anybody know a cheap dedicated server in US (west coast) or Asia region. The price should be arround $40 per month. no setup or less than $50.
Server is for DNS, SNMP monitoring and some backup data only. Minimum requirement are 512MB+, small CPU, 80GB/120GB+ HDD and 200GB+ Traffic should be enough for it. More than 1 IP, remote power and Gentoo Linux is preferred.
I had searched in the past but it seeams that companies like vrtservers/theplanet/etc. will have much higher prices right now as a half year before. I know there were one for $29-$39 in SJ or LA depending on the RAM/HDD/IP but I don't remember which company it was.
But in general it seams that servers in Europe (NL, Germany, ...) will be much cheaper right now with much more support and features like RemotePower, more IP addresses, ...
I've just finally got fed up with all the people from Israel trying to hack into my servers. Of course they're always auto-banned, but getting several attempts per day emailed to me it gets old...so I banned the entire country.
Anyone else ban entire countries from their servers?
I had a few sites hacked today. I'm using phpbb (all updates) and, apparently, the only thing they did was to drop the database and replace it with one featuring a single post "advertising" their hacker group. I tried bringing everything back on-line, but they would just attack again and take it down quickly... I'm thinking it's probably just some script kiddies.
They announce themselves as "turkish hackers". Browsing around for their message, I found they attacked quite a few sites. What I was thinking, to help preventing this from happening again, is to ban all visitors from Turkey (none of these sites has a need for them, as they're aimed at a local audience).
Can I do this simply by using "deny from .tr" in htaccess? Or are there any more steps to be taken?
i know that i.e. Hetzner gives you PA Space with your own Netname ("netname:" field) (maybe also own Adress) but they dont allow to change the "country:" field, and it stays "DE"
I would like to have a block of 8/16/32 IPs with own "Netname:" field, and own "Country:" field (or as Countrycode "CN", "HK", "AG", "BS" or "KY")
Could Provide P.O. Boxes in all that countrys if needed.
The Server behind it does not really matter, location should be not Germany and not USA (cant comply with some Laws in this 2 Countrys) - something like 1Ghz CPU, 80Gb HDD, 512Mb Ram is enough - 100Mbit (or 10Mbit Burstable) with ~350Gb Traffic.
setting up another website which will have hopefully both a uk and us audience. I am looking at going with godaddy as they offer a domain extension I want, which no uk service seems to offer. Is there any disadvantages to this, will it operate slower?
in a domain environment, how do I enable users to be able to access the Desktop properties and allow them to change their wallpapers. I know it should be a simple one but I'm still looking through policies but can't find what can be. By default/ after some group policy changes, all users are denied from accesing this properties window.
I want to stop users from country X from accessing my website, I know I can ban people's IPs but I dont know if it is possible to ban certain geographical area and if so, I haven't got a clue about how to do it.
I got a list of IPs from the country i want to block from blockacountry.com and i added them to my .htaccess as I have no access to PF or IP tables firewall.
I am concerned about the server load if I get too many requests from that country to access the webpage, I have been told of a better solution, blocking someone based on the browser language they use, for example for China that is "zh-CN" but I don't know how to implement this and I have not been able to find it through Google, help with this appreciated.
Second thing, anyone knows what happens when someone attempts to access a webpage from a blocked IP? Do they get a "Page not found" or "your IP is blacklisted" message?
If I block by browser language it would be good if the blocking message does not tell the user about this
(Notice that I am aware that blocking by browser language is not a perfect solution).
