Reverse IP Lookup - Find Other Web Sites Hosted on a Web Server Find other sites hosted on a web server by entering a domain or IP address above. Note: For those of you interested, as of May 2014, my database has grown to over 100 million domain names. I am now offering this domain list for purchase. A reverse IP domain check takes a domain name or IP address pointing to a web server and searches for other sites known to be hosted on that same web server. Background All web sites are hosted on web servers, which are computers running specialized software that distribute web content as requested. As of 2003, more than 87% of all active domains names were found to share their IP addresses (i.e. their web servers) with one or more additional domains. While IP sharing is typically transparent to ordinary users, it may cause complications for both search engine optimization and web site filtering. Concerning SEO (search engine optimization) Conversely, search engines value links from web sites hosted on different IP addresses. Concerning web site filtering

IP Latency Statistics (Verizon) Verizon Enterprise Solutions is constantly measuring the latency (speed) of core areas of its network using data collected by pings via the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP). How is the data collected? Network Transit Delay is the round trip average monthly delay between the origination and the destination between the in-route and out-route demarcation points. Network Packet Guarantee is measured based on the percentage of test packets that reach their intended destination, divided by the total number of test packets sent. What are our targets? Verizon Enterprise Solutions Service Level Agreements (SLAs) provide: Network Transit Delay - 800 Msec or less for regional round trips within North America Network Packet Guarantee - 99% average or greater for regional round trips within North America Back to IP Latency Statistics Verizon Enterprise Solutions is constantly measuring the performance metrics of its Private IP network utilizing a variety of tools.

Blogging, video sharing, text messaging, and live-streaming from cellphones brought images of popular unrest from the central square of Cairo and the main boulevard of Tunis to the rest of the world.

Internet Traffic Archive | acm sigcomm The Internet Traffic Archive is a moderated repository to support widespread access to traces of Internet network traffic, sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM. The traces can be used to study network dynamics, usage characteristics, and growth patterns, as well as providing the grist for trace-driven simulations. The archive is also open to programs for reducing raw trace data to more manageable forms, for generating synthetic traces, and for analyzing traces. Traces contributed to the archive have no restrictions as to what use may be made of them (except for traffic analysis as noted below). Traces may however have restrictions on redistribution. Check the Restrictions information associated with the trace. Software contributed to the archive is in general copyrighted. Traces contributed to the archive often will have been filtered to some degree to preserve the privacy of the network users whose traffic was traced, and to address network security concerns.

PhishTank | Join the fight against phishing A Zero-Day Virus Attack Earlier this month a part of our University was hit with a zero-day virus attack. I had not heard of the phrase zero-day before now and suspect most people only learn about the concept when one occurs at their place of work. Zero-day refers to a class of computer threats that exposes undisclosed or unpatched application vulnerabilities. Zero-day attacks can be considered extremely dangerous because they take advantage of computer security holes for which no solution is currently available. A Zeroday Emergency Response Team (ZERT) is a group of software engineers who works to release non-vendor patches for Zero-day exploits. When the smoke cleared, over 1900 desktops and 10 servers were infected with the mass mailing virus referred to as W32/Nuwar or W32/Mixor.
