API-Digital


keyplr,
Although it's not part of my normal vocabulary, I'd suggest caution with this categorization.

API-Digital is a very large network (15 ranges in all) and colo is a mere part of their overall service.

Thanks Don, of course you're correct.

The trouble came from a media site that has a small sub-range within 67.58.64.0/19. When I saw that API-Digital also hosted gaming sites (a thorn in my side for years) as well as other colo services, I pulled the trigger.

Now that you've drawn my attention I see wireless and other ISP types speckled in there :)

Such a shiny new thread!
Seeing a new Amazon range at 54.72.0.0 - 54.95.255.255 with CIDRs: 54.72.0.0/13 and 54.80.0.0/12 that was registered 11-25-13.

Edited to add - I see now that dstiles posted this over in the Amazon pages - sorry, I'm having ISP difficulties this week and limping on a mobile modem so I'm missing a lot.

I block all of 54.

Tethered to a mobile; Luxury!

Try Asian dial-ups, or even maintaining a site via "Internet Shops". (Remember those?)

Lots of people connect throughout 54. Example: Whitehouse Telecom, New Jersey where my brother is.

Tough. If Amazon cannot delineate their services properly they get blocked. I even block proxy accesses through them - especially block!

Nothing to do with Amazon. Anyone blocking 54/8 is shutting out a lot of human traffic.

I've had them blocked for well over a year.

BTW, what does "one-off" mean?

I've seen them only one time, making only one request. Or just once per site.* I'm currently in a grumpy mode w/r/t robots, and am therefore blocking them wholesale. Ordinarily I ignore any isolated requests for front page alone, since I'm not a front-driven site and it's really no skin off my nose.


* For some reason I now own five domains. This would seem to be at least four more than I need, but oh well.

Absolutely

What would a cell phone-- whether TRUSTED or not-- need with a favicon?

Dunno. This was obviously a probe to see what's up, but if in fact a cell phone did really request a favicon, there may be use as a tile, much in the same manner as a apple-touch-icon or browserconfig.xml icons. Too many new devices to know how they all work.

[added]Just checked on my Android phone. Yup, for a site where I have not designated an apple-touch-icon or a png to be used as a tile in browserconfig.xml, my Chrome browser uses the favicon as the icon in the bookmarks directory. Can't check the native Android web browser as I've disabled it.

And it's not the device that's UNTRUSTED, it's the network.
