Hosting Industry Demystified


Bulletproof hosting sometimes known as bulk-friendly hosting is a service provided by some domain hosting or web hosting firms that allows their customer considerable leniency in the kinds of material they may upload and distribute. This leniency has been taken advantage of by spammers and providers of online gambling.

Many service providers have Terms of Service that do not allow certain materials to be uploaded or distributed, or the service to be used in a particular way, and may suspend a hosting account, after a few complaints; to minimize the risk of their IP subnet being blocked by anti-spam filters using Internet Protocol based filtering. Additionally, some service providers may have ethical concerns that underpin their service terms and conditions.

Often, a bulletproof host allows a content provider to bypass the laws or contractual terms of service regulating Internet content and service use in its own country of operation, as many of these ‘bulletproof hosts’ are based ‘overseas’.

Some examples of bulletproof hosts, with their takedown time:

  • Russian Business Network, taken down in November 2007
  • Atrivo/Intercage, taken down in September 2008
  • McColo, taken down in November 2008
  • 3FN, taken down by FTC in June 2009, etc.

Many web hosting companies have Terms of Service (TOS) or Acceptable Use Policies (AUP) against the delivery of emails advertising or promoting your web site.  If your web site host receives complaints or discovers that your web site has been advertised in email broadcasts, they may disconnect your account and shut down your web site.
