HostBill is a popular billing and automation software for the web hosting industry with thousands of clients. HostBill provides a variety of fraud protection plugins to help users detect and automatically block fraud attempts. Now, the company added a new module, IP2Proxy Proxy Detection from IP2Location to the list.
IP2Proxy Proxy Detection fraud protection module
IP2Location is a provider of IP geolocation technology and database products, widely used in securing, enhancing and customizing Internet experience. IP2Proxy Proxy Detection Database contains IP addresses. These IP addresses are used as VPN anonymizers, open proxies, web proxies and Tor exits, data center, web hosting (DCH) range, search engine robots (SES) and residential proxies (RES).
Hostbill explains the IP2Proxy Detection, saying,
“Anonymous proxy servers are intermediate servers meant to hide the real identity or IP address of the requestor and are often used for online credit card fraud and spamming. With IP2Proxy integration users can check customer order for potential Proxy use and reject orders from selected types of proxies, countries, certain ISP types or IP2Proxy threats detected. The verification can be omitted for admin orders.”
IP2Proxy Detection features checking customer orders for potential Proxy use, rejecting orders from selected countries and orders from selected types of proxies. In addition to this, it prevents verification from admin orders.
HostBill also introduced credit failed renewal this week. If the domain renewal is unsuccessful and the domain renew invoice has been paid, it will be credited back to the customer account and if the credit notes are enabled, a credit note will be issued.
