Anybody have any info and/or ranges?

The following appears to be plagarism related, however came in on two valid searches and retrieved all supporting files.

Earthlink, Inc. NETBLCK-ITCD-7 107.7.0.0 - 107.7.255.255
Globaloptions Group Inc ITCD-107-7-91-0 107.7.91.0 - 107.7.91.63 107.7.91.0/26

Looks like patent investigation.

globaloptionsgroup.com > patentproperties.com

If there's a knock at the door, don't answer it.

Many thanks keyplr.
I was aware of the subnet use, however was more interested in a wider Earthlink hosting range.

IMO Earthlink, just like AT&T, Verizon, Cox, Comcast, Turner and the rest, all offer Biz service (including Hosting) products.

I've always had great difficulty narrowing down the Hosting ranges for these ISPs. For example, Verizon does identify their Biz ranges, but not the specific Hosting part. So if I block the Verizon Biz ranges in hopes of covering the Biz Hosting, I would also be blocking thousands & thousands of internet surfing employees from those client companies. I have made many sales to this demographic.

So unless I get very persistent trouble makers, I usually just tolerate the occasional download or scrape. The repeat offenders of course get a much harsher solution.

Earthlink gained a very bad reputation, in my book, after they dealt in a slippery fashion and tardy response to a dmca.

Unfaithful in small things means... 403 for all Earthlink traffic.

Ran a full web (gTLD) survey in June and updated it this month. It hosts 17,346 websites (16,887 gTLD) on 1131 Class Cs. There's a mix of home and business hosting with some subnets only hosting a single site. That's often an indication of home hosting rather than shared/dedicated hosting. Much of Earthlink's hosting (12,481) is concentrated in its cloud offering. I really must get this database bashed into something usable.
