Does Level3 have a monthly minimum of some sort? I currently own a dialup internet service provider, buy through a dialup reseller that mainly uses the Level3 managed modem service, and would like to deal with them directly if possible. I am also interested in their collocation services and ip connections in the future.
Just wondering what problems a listing here will cause for emails [url]and it is Level 3.
rejected emails to some or all other networks?
This is for a Data Center's IP ranges, they have advised the cause was 2 of their customers with 6 servers which all contained multiple IP classes on each server caused this and are saying to wait 7 days before the listings will clear.
I do not believe they will pay the express removal, not sure if they even knew about the listing until it was pointed out to them.
Details from site..
What means listed at UCEPROTECT-Level 3?
GAME OVER. We and our users have seen enough spam and heared all possible excusions why some lazy providers think to be not responsible for what their customers are doing.
We are not just another blacklist. We really know better. Massive spam is always a problem tolerated by the provider.
Your abuser / user ratio is exorbitant high. We expect some minimum standards from soneone claiming to be a professional provider.
Due to the facts that you do not reach our standards, we and many of our users have chosen to no longer allow smtp-traffic from all your IP's and ranges. See above what we are willig to tolerate as a maximum by an provider of your size.
In todays Internet it is no longer acceptable to sit down and wait for abuse to happen.
If you want to become an accepted provider with a good reputation, you will have to install preventive measures.

If you think it is not your job to prevent your IP's flooding the world with spams, we hope that you and your users will enjoy your Intranet.
How can our total ip-space be removed from UCEPROTECT-Level 3?
You can not expect to get a free ride because you are the provider. Our standard removal procedures are also valid for you.
After you have fixed the problems, the UCEPROTECT-Level 3 listing will be removed automatically and free of charge as soon as the causal Level 1 listings will expire.
Every IP listed at Level 1 expires 7 days after we have seen the last abusive action coming from it.
If you don't want your users to be affected up till the free expiration, you can optionally Expressdelist, which is charged a total of 250 EURO per ASN.
That is a huge discount compared to our charges for Level 2 or even Level 1 expressdelistings.
It is necessary that problems are fixed in first place, otherwise your complete IP-space might end up in Level 3 again within a short timeframe
Does anyone have any experience in this DC, or are there any resellers who could help me out? We have equipment all over the US, but want something close to our offices for a more robust testing environment. We're only 30 minutes from NYC, but it's a huge hassle and we already have other equipment there.
I've done searches for other DCs in the area, but they don't turn up too much. I'm open to anything in western CT or Westchester county. The only quote I've gotten so far was ridiculous.
Does Level3 charge the same price per rack at every one of their datacenters, or is it dependent on the location? For example, how much would a rack in the Houston datacenter cost compared to the Dallas datacenter? Please no sales people contact me I am just asking to do some research.
We are switching from a reseller that blends several carriers to Level3, to reduce our b/w costs (by a factor of 3x). We are driving upwards of 300Mbps currently.
Is Level3 reliable enough in terms of uptime to be our *only* carrier?
We are running a real-time always-on service with long-lived TCP connections, so frequent disconnections would be problematic. A single downtime of a couple of minutes per month would not be too bad on the other hand.
Switching our stuff to Level3 is a lot of work as it is.
Getting a second provider for the failover, which involves setting up a CISCO edge router with BGP, getting an AS number from ARIN, will make this task too big at this point. Is L3 reliable enough on its own to spare this hassle of a second ISP?
Has anyone had issues with Level3 honoring their discard community recently (3556:9999)? We had to null 2 IPs earlier in the week. The first one they didn't pick up the route when advertised via BGP (or if they did, it took hours). We ended up having to call and get them to filter it manually. The second IP we were able to null route fine using BGP. Now we have another IP being attacked and it looks like Level3 isn't going to pick up the route and discard traffic.
We currently take transit from Level3 and Tiscali in addition to peering at LINX in the UK. We reaching capacity on our 100Mbps connection to Level3 which we take through a Reseller. I plan to keep our Tiscali transit as we receive great routes to Europe.
I have received quotes for increasing our Level3 to 1Gbps with 100 Mbps CDR and also switching to Global Crossing direct which are I think are fairly competitive at ~ £12 per Mbps?
Does any one have direct experience with either of these two providers in the UK and can recommend who has the best support/routes etc? Additionally I see a number of other UK providers are using Telia and NTT. Having had no experience with Telia or NTT I am unsure if they are in the same league as Global Crossing and Level3. Also are there any other Tier 1's we should be looking at?
I am colo shopping in Phoenix. I have already been in contact with Jeff at Atjeu and iLand (at Level3)....
Are there other shared rack colo providers in the Phoenix or Tucson area? Probably will start with 3-5amp draw and 2-3mbit. Are there other DC's I should be looking at? I don't thing I'd be a spec on the radar at Limelight.
We've been considering getting a cabinet at Level3 in Tampa and the last pricing we got was November 2006. Yesterday I spoke with the rep I'd been dealing with to place the order, and was told that Level3 raised their prices substantially as of January 1st.
The quote we got 2 months ago is now a full 30% higher.
Can anyone confirm whether Level3 really did take a fat increase, or am I being hustled?
am i asking for too much? everyone seems to only offer 1 or 2TB bandwidth but i'm hovering right around 1.5TB a month at my current location so i need a bit more for growth.
i run a non-profit gaming website and our budget is somewhat tight. we've been in a speakeasy datacenter for over 7 years and the only reason we're moving is because we outgrew the small server we were blessed with for so many years.
in finding sublease opportunities for cage/cabinet space at the Level(3) NY2 facility @ 85 10th Avenue in New York City. Please contact me if you have space/power to sell at this facility in any quantity.
Well what i can i say that direct admin is really pain in the ass, twice i asked in their forum but it was queued for moderation then not published. i'm having a problem setting up my domain 100% correctly.
let me explain more:
Before 1 or 2 weeks, i re-build the server and installed direct admin, but its really harder than other panels and i couldn't figure it 100% how to do, my website now is running but i have the following problems
1- domain name can not be solved by all people. when i try to ping it it says its not resolvable, while the domain opens for most of users except for very few which gives an error saying can not connect to server
2- i get this error when using intodns.com [url] while everything else is ok
3- some of users in some countries access home/admin/domains/sharedip/... while others access home/admin/domains/mydomain.com/... which is the correct one, this causes problems but i temporary solved the problem by uploading files into both folders
As in recent threads i have posted about getting a DA lifetime licence within the next month. I currently get my domains from 123-reg but i am just wondering if someone could help me or if they have an answer to my question!
If i bought a domain from 123-reg and then got a lifetime licence from DA and had it installed onto my server what happens to the nameservers? Like when DA install it onto my box would they sort out the nameservers for my domain aswell like ns1.mydomain.com, ns2.mydomain.com or would i have to pay extra for them?
I have a website which has a FLV player serving .flv files which are hosted in the server. I notice that some users are directly downloading the files using the direct URL and they seem to be using download managers for that which is opening several Apache connections and open slows down Apache. I want to prevent this. I thought of preventing it using a .htaccess file but did not help. This is what I used:
<Files *> order allow,deny allow from 127.0.0.1 allow from localhost deny from all </Files>
I thought this would work but it doesn't as it is blocking the FLV player from playing the file. Can anyone tell me the right way to do it?
Just been thinking and currently i host all my services with other hosting companies like my web hosting accounts etc...but was thinking of buying a DA licence and installing it onto one of my linux servers.
On DA's website it says one licence per IP or something along them lines...does this mean if i was to install a licence on say 18.104.22.1689 and it was working ok etc but then if i changed my IP range to 22.214.171.1248 would that mean the DA licence would no longer be valid?
