    Own abuse contact on vps?

    I'd like to offer an option to use a vpn for my current customers.

    Is there any VPS with PPTP support that would allow me to list my own abuse address on the whois so I can deal with the abuse issues myself (rather than have my provider cut off my vps) ?

    I'm looking for usa location, xen (or openvz with pptp support), the option to buy additional ips would be nice, 192mb ram or higher, 500gb bandwidth or higher, 5gb disk.

    Thanks

    I don't think you can do this, abuse reports usually go by IP delegations.

    You can SWIP a /32, although it is not required until a /29 and most abuse email goto the parent anyway simply because of lack of response.

    Yes, it will definitely help. I own a picture service site and my VPS provider used to forward all the abuse/DMCA complaints to me and I decided to have my own abuse/DMCA section just in case my provider got sick of the e-mails. My provider used to forward about 3-5 complaints per month, but now I get about 1 complaint per month from my provider. It really does help. Just make sure you make it easy to find.

    I make it so when someone sees a picture then can click on the DMCA button and file a complaint in about a minute or less. People like easy

    If you check out TorServers' page they will tell you about providers who offer SWIP. If you think VPN abuse is bad, try running a Tor node. I did it for about 4 months until the abuse got to be unbearable and Media Sentry / CERT sending so much crap

    How much exactly is shown when the ip is SWIPed? Can you post or PM me an IP that has been SWIPed so I can see the information shown please?

    Like mitgib pointed out, many people go after the parent company anyway. It'll look like a normal whois but at the bottom will have your contact information. I would recommend you have a functional website selling your services with a clear abuse contact / abuse form so it looks good in the eyes of your provider.

    Oh, so it'll be like this? http://gyazo.com/fb2f3ff536855d24689e051b9abc2b54.png
    What's it called when your information is on the entire thing?

    Do a whois on 173.212.220.1 and it shows HostNOC being the parent with BurstNET being the SWIP

    How about RWHOIS? I know it isn't the same as SWIP but SWIPing for a simple /32 would be annoying

    Actually RWHOIS functions the same as SWIP, but again the parent has to do it, so it doesn't help the OP

    imho, if you are certainly sure that you'll get a dmca complains whether it's will be right on to your face or your provider, it's better for you to leave any us related of anything.
    please cmiiw always
