When someone asks for a low resource VPS with high IP allocation

How do you react? It seems that many immediately label the request as coming from someone who wants to send spam and decline the request, while others might entertain it under certain conditions like turning off mail ports, rate limiting mail ports, and/or taking a substantial advance payment (often a full year) before considering providing service. The advance payment is designed to separate genuine orders from those wishing to use the VPS for nefarious activities and who are unlikely to wish to spend so much, so move on elsewhere. In this same thread the arguement is made that hosts should not be concerned about what the purpose of the VPS will be, while hosts explain that they're concerned about their IP ranges being blacklisted and the amount of work needed to get those delisted. What's your take? Are there other legitimate reasons for requesting this type of configuration? Are hosts being reasonable declining such orders or imposing extra conditions?

White Label Domain Reselling

Mike is new to WHT and has been searching around for recommendations for white-label domain reselling, but can't find anything suitable. He has a webpage creation/hosting site and wants to offer free domains to his users when they sign up for an annual subscription. Ideally, he wants to find a white-label solution that reduces the amount of code he needs to write. All of the registrars of interest to him offer APIs but very few offer a white-label page. He's noticed a similar site to what he's after but can't seem to find a way to contact them and they don't answer his email to them. He's listed what he's looking to achieve in his post and would very much like to find a white-label solution rather than having to write a lot of API code. Do we have any domain resellers who can suggest something, or is there another way to achieve what Mike's aiming for?

News from around the hosting industry

Our Industry News section is the place to find current headlines from around the world of hosting and infrastructure, but other general interest threads pop up in other sections of the forum, especially The Lounge. Here we we highlight just some of the interesting news items from around the forum:

  • Data center leasing hits records thanks to AI demand - Research is revealing that DC leasing is at record levels as cloud providers seek capacity for AI workloads. Different reports state 836 MW of absorption in North America in the second quarter, a record for a single quarter. Another says its analysis found "a tsunami of AI demand", with 2.1 GW of data center leases signed in the last 90 days. While the reports differ in estimates of total leasing, they agree on the AI-driven surge in demand.
  • Russian web hosts must identify customers as Putin axes anonymity - On July 31, President Putin approved a legal amendment starting in December enforcing Russian online platforms to verify the identities of new users before providing access to services. Before hosting companies are permitted to provide services to users, they will be required to positively identify potential customers using government-approved mechanisms. And that can only take place when hosters receive government permission to conduct business. It is envisioned that an entity will be appointed to maintain a register of hosting companies. Hosting companies and online services will be provided with a list of activities, content types, and certain behaviors prohibited by the state. They must be Russian legal entities, under the control of a Russian citizen who doesn’t have citizenship in another country. By September 2024 state entities may only use "computing power" available from registered companies while the use of "information systems" and software owned by foreign legal entities or citizens will be prohibited.
  • Liquid Web parent acquired Servers.com - CloudOne Digital acquired the bare metal firm a few weeks ago for an undisclosed sum. The exit was worth $200 million although neither CloudOne Digital nor co-founder Alexey Gubarev shared the acquisition price, other than confirming the exit. Servers.com has data centers in North America, Western Europe and Asia, and joined the CloudOne Digital-owned "Liquid Web" family of brands, a holding company containing a number of multi cloud-based solutions.
  • CoreWeave announces new $1.6B Texas data center - The specialized cloud provider of large-scale GPU-accelerated workloads, announced a new data center facility in Plano, Texas. The new data center should be fully operational by the end of the year and will be CoreWeave's first facility in Texas. The company recently opened a data center in New York City.
