Title says it all.

If a site was banned in Yahoo would it be by IP or Domain name?

Thanks for your responses.

how would you ban a domain by ip?

you'd ban server by ip and domain by name......

Say if you were to move the site to another ip, assign the domain to another ip address. Would that have any effect upon a banned site?

the only reason that might work is if the server you were on was banned. I think its 50/50 getting straight back in from a banned server.

They dont bane the IP that quick because there cold be other sites on that IP, so they go after the domain name.

If your site were truly banned, wouldn't you already know this answer?

they do ban an ip if a large enough percentage of other sites on that ip are deemed below standards. They might claim it would take 95% of sites deemed below standard but that still means having other sites on that ip would not prevent a ban.

as for the question of banning a site by ip, well you simply cant ban a domain that way. You could ban a domain for being on a banned server but that ban would have to then be by name.

HI,

How can yahoo ban sites by server? As one server may have many IPs in different C class?
