Hello,

Is there an easy way to find out which hosting companies offer dedicated servers in underground data centers?

I've found over a dozen underground DCs, but when I contact them, they're rarely willing to let me know which of their customers are hosting companies. I've been slogging through Google results, but is there an easy way to find out the hosting companies who host from a particular DC?

Thanks

What is so interesting about the "underground" data centers, I don't get it?

Unfortunately I wouldn't know of a sure way to identify which DCs are underground. I'd do the same thing you are doing: Google, also check specialized resources like DatacenterKnowledge.com Perhaps they'd have a catalog/database of DCs you can go through.

Underground or Overground DCs or any business for that matter will not discuss any of their other customers as this breaches data protection laws and could see then company getting a heavy fine or even worse they could be forced to close down.

Artashes the way i read it uncaged is not after DCs, but wants DCs to tell them which of their customers are hosting companies.

You are totally right. I misunderstood the request after the first read.

You are also correct that it is highly unlikely they will disclose that info.

What’s your interest in underground data centres? Is it a specific request from a customer or is this something you yourself is looking for?

Didn't know that underground data centers have such a big demand!

Just Googling through, found a good (although old) article on the pros and cons of the same...
https://www.datacenterknowledge.com/...d-data-centers

Getting to the actual topic, datacenters wouldn't be able to mention whom they are hosting in their datacenter, both from confidentiality perspective as well as corporate security.

Any data-center would not give their customer information. It's against the privacy protection policy

Protecting the privacy one of most preferred factor to be considered before you even avail hosting services

If i knew any company had given out my details without my permission then i can almost certainly guarantee it would be that last week that company would be trading as UK laws are very strict on privacy and with then GDPR it makes it far easier to have a company break privacy laws to be closed down.
In then UK Data Protection laws (GDPR) means any company has to register with the ICO if they hold details of UK residents. If they break this then they can be reported and have their registration revoked which would make it a criminal offence for that company to hold anyone's personal information in manual files or on any computer databases/files, so in effect close them down.
