ASPnix free IP address lookup utility now available

ASPnix is pleased to announce our free IP lookup utility! Many times we are required to ask customers what their “Internet facing” or “public” IP address is, most do not know what this means, where to get it, or provide their local IP address. So, we’ve decided to create our own free utility, no ads, no extras, no frills, just a quick and simple to use utility to get your Internet facing or public IPv4 and IPv6 IP address!

Our tool also has the ability to provide GeoIP information as to the geographical information about your IP address. Which can help give more information about a visitor to your website or a suspicious looking IP address and more!

Simply go to https://myip.aspnix.com/ in your browser and you will be provided your IP address as well as any geographical information if available. We also have other options as well…

Are you a developer? Awesome! We have a great solution for developers as well! Take a look at our KB article for more information.

Thank you for choosing ASPnix!

Routing issues 11/11/11

Denver, CO, USA

Dear ASPnix customers,

On the 11/11/11 @11:11PM MST (no superstition, just a coincidence) ASPnix has experienced routing issues. This was caused due to recent rapid growth of our company. In the past few weeks we have increased our networking capacity, IP ranges and server clusters. All the recent events caused an overload of our network carrier’s router. Due to that, ASPnix has purchased its own powerful Cisco router which opens a door to much bigger growth in the long term. During the transition from carrier’s to our own router there were some hiccups. In particular we were communicated some routing information and ports configuration incorrectly. But thanks to our amazing system administrator who did not sleep for 30+ hours and hardworking management, all the issues have been resolved. The new router brings a few advantages to our customers. We are noticing about 5-10% decrease in latency which means your sites will be opening faster and VoIP services such as TeamSpeak 3 will perform even better.

Thank you for your patience and loyalty!
