IP2Proxy Proxy Detection module
We’re happy to present a new fraud protection module: IP2Proxy Detection! This week we’re also introducing new features for domain automation, client area and more.
IP2Proxy Proxy Detection fraud protection module
HostBill provides a variety of fraud protection plugins to help you detect and automatically block fraud attempts. New addition to this list is IP2Proxy Proxy Detection from IP2Location.
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 which 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). 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 you 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. Learn more about the module here.
Domain automation: Credit failed renewals
In HostBill you can set various domain automation features, in bulk or per TLD. New automation feature introduced this week is Credit failed renewal. With this option on, 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. The invoice status will be set as unpaid and it will be handled as if the admin performed a refund.
Client area: listings
In HostBill client area, new functionality allows clients to determine number of rows per client area listings (accounts, domains etc). A small change but aimed at improving customer experience!
Full release notes are available in our changelog.
