    How to Stop Whois.sc / Webhosting.info listing customers

    Hi guys,

    Is there any way to minimise/stop whois.sc and webhosting.info from indexing all users on my servers?

    I know somebody will ask... I dont want competitors looking at who are on my servers to steal customers etc.


    Thanks

    in whois.sc its paid service

    webhosting.info i doubt they have.

    not sure if its legal or not todo so but its publicly available information by looking up all www.*.com and www.*.net www.*.org and filtering your server IP to know which domains poiting to that IP and listing them.

    might want a lawyer to review zone file access agreement and see if they are allowed todo and view it to public or not.

    Yes I know they could all have a dedicated Ip, which wouldnt help too much as that would be costly!

    What I thought is have a seperate nameserver for each box instead of clustering. That would at least minimise the amount of users they could screen.

    Also have a dedicated ip for the hosting website.

    This is public information, even on dedicated IP, if they want to check the domains inside each and everyone there is still a way. Rather than worry on this, better to work on how to keep the clients satisfied. A satisfied client will not leave your services easily.

    And how do they do that?

    You can look up IP owners through the regional Ip authorities and/or using any multitude of tools available on line.
