Reselling a Filtered IP?
Hey guys, saw this thread from a HostChat discussion on Skype...
Looks like a BuyVM filtered' IP. Has SSH on defauly port, expensive for such a thing really right?
I'm not even sure Francisco would even approve of such a deed on his network reselling for McServers who will be getting a prime amount of DDoS through Peak hours from booters.
Anybody have anything to note on this?
Lots of people do it w/o issue.
I don't mind at all and have even recommended it to some people
@Francisco one of the only hosts I know who invites inbound attacks !
Francisco ain't afraid of the kids
The filtering is there for that reason
It'd be unfair for me to say 'how dare you pay for ddos filtering then actually USE it for that purpose!!'
A lot of people use our services are proxies for bigger services.
Best of luck to them, quit being jerks in that thread
@Francisco I just didnt know if you had any quarms with such a thing !
I know more than a few have had 5 - 8Gbit burst floods. Nasty stuff.
Meh, well, I guess if you're making the cash off it and have the tools there to defend from it, it's a valid point on your behalf.
Well in all fairness, to get a BuyVM filtered IP you have to buy a service + the filter addon.
Minimum total like $7 roughly on monthly payment.
Sure $12.95 costs more. At least the person is selling a real service backed by a reputable company, as opposed to vapor.
I agree. At least he is offering a service that is trully ddos protected. Frantech wins, seller wins, buyer wins as well so i don't see a problem with that.
In this industry, everyone is a reseller of something. Colo providers resell power, bandwidth, cooling and real estate. Dedicated server providers are reselling servers, etc. Reselling BuyVM DDOS protection... you're a proxy provider, basically. There's value in it because there are probably people who can't (or don't want to) set it up on their own and whatnot.
