There are many reasons why a client would need a new IP without generating any abuse complaints. One of it would be to lose his trail in case he is DDoSed or someone is trying to brute force/ hack him.

I once heard about a client was buying VPSes and renewing them using the cancel and buy a new one technique, that was running a indian visa application system for non-technical bangladeshi citizens and needed new IPs because the indian government website would keep banning his IPs.

We aint having any fuss over this client. We are OK with him but just shared here a strange behavior but one that doesnt break our terms and therefore nothing to inconvenience the client about.

The server has over 150GB but like I said up the client uses less than 15GB.

Interesting, that's a first for sure.

Sounds to me like they are doing it for the new IP address each month.

Its not about our support as the client has never sought our support and has never responded to our requests. In fact as an update he now ordered two more VPS with us. we are waiting to see at the end of month if he will still behave the same.

Ya maybe he just doesn't care to understand he can just renew or maybe he is playing a money back policy or something. That is odd and a lot of work just for the same thing over and over.

Interestingly he doesn't qualify for the money back since he has been with us technically for over a year

What if you were to just ask why he does that? You can spin in in such a way that perhaps you can come up with a better and/or custom solution for him that will cater to his specific needs?

Well you can not do that for a client who wont answer your emails. We took the trouble to alter his password to get him to talk to us all he did was request a reset and move on without ever responding to our mails. We had to let him be!

That in itself is strange as to why does he not reply to you, although we all have clients like that.

I have a reseller who is on an annual payment plan and in the last 8 years he has only contacted me once and that was 4 years ago when he wanted to change payment methods.
I have had no reason to contact him regarding any issues and i know he gets all service emails as i get email receipts from his email address.
