Technical Details & Policies
Our experience in the hosting industry has allowed us to create an extremely reliable and flexible hosting architecture. The extension of this architecture to our reseller program is a wonderful opportunity for you to create a successful hosting operation without the hassle of maintaining the infrastructure; the network and hosting platform. Along with a more specific outline of anonymity below, you will also find a list of account features and our program policies.
SimpleNet goes to great lengths to ensure that we remain anonymous to your clientele. It is our goal to help you establish your brand as a high quality service provider without anyone being able to trace your backend to us. In fact, our program maximizes your anonymity by providing reseller-specific IPs for several web hosting functions.
- Control Panel IP: Create a control panel login URL that is specific to your business, such as cp.yourdomain.com, and we provide an IP address that is unique to that address.
- Customer Account IPs: Your accounts will be placed on an IP set that is separate from SimpleNet's own shared hosting customers.
- MX and Mail Server IPs: Your reseller account will get unique IPs for your MX and Mail Servers. A URL will also be created, such as webmail.yourdomain.com, for your users to access their accounts.
- DNS Server IPs: A unique IP will be used for your DNS servers. Temporary URLs for customers to work on the web presence while waiting for domain name registration or transfer will be provided under your company brand name.
- Other IPs: Unique SSL and FTP IPs will also be provided to assist in SimpleNet's anonymous provision of service.
Within your reseller control panel, you will find a section of IPs and URLs that control the aspects listed above, and more. Certain IPs aren't easily hidden, so SimpleNet has created generic domain names that relate to those IPs. In cases where a generic domain name is not a proper solution, then we've placed a domain protect on the whois information for that domain/IP.
