Can someone describe their VPS hosting signup methodology. I'm opposed to fully automating the process. I'm too the point, we want to take orders, but worry about the spammers using resources before a follow verification check can be done. We feel our network, redundancy and planning are solid - it's the next "step" to get orders. Suggestions?

We're basing our offering in 4 plans using Xen on 5 hosts, mutipathed ISCSI (2) SANS.

Try to gather as many reviews about its web hosting services (both positive and negative) and serve these as basis in choosing web host providers.

I am a little confused. Your title states that you require VPS hosting, but the content of the message says that you are trying to investigate signup methodology to protect your company from potential abuse by spammers. Can you please clarify?

simple get WHMCS as your client/billing system and then when you create product just use the ' Do not automatically setup this product' option so that you can do checks on the buyer and also sign up to Maxmind and fraudrecord

Simple solution, don't accept the order until it's verified.

Even verification cannot stop spammer. Most of the times spammers will ask for unmanaged VPS with many IPs, we regularly see such orders which we do not accept.

I often get pre sales support tickets of live chats requests asking if i can provide servers with *** resources ( they quote exact spec for servers listed on our website), so if they were genuine then why not just click order. It is simple they are wanting you to manually place the order for them rather than them go through the website and go through all the verification which they know they would fail.

What we get more often than not are prospects looking for lots of IP addresses. They seem to think that purchased lists equate to opted in.

WHMCS could solve this if you are in fact looking for a client management and spam protection client.
