Presumably you don't intend developing the "bot monitoring" domain for any public use?
the biggest search monsters, also know who owns each domain on each IP
That kinda defeats the point of private registration, doesn't it?
I'm wondering if I should let the monsters in
Despite our server having several shared-hosting IPs we still get access attempts using only the IP, which would, given laxness on my part, return meaningless results.
What, if anything, would happen by default if you request an IP used by more than one host? I tried it (well, of course I did ;)) and just got the browser's loading-up bar, as if it's stuck at 1% of a large download. But not the same as the timeout I get from an https request for my own (non-secure) site. Same request in a different browser led to "site temporarily unavailable". At which point I had to go request my test site by its proper name to make sure I hadn't triggered some automated response.
