Expiration IP / Expiration URL
As you have already read in our feature description
we neutralise your account when a planned account update is not carried
out or could not be carried out.
The standard procedure is that we assign a neutral IP to your account on
which no service (email server, FTP server etc) is running. If you
account is accessed via a web browser, we present a neutral page on
which the surfer is informed that the page is not currently available.
Better to give the user of your internet service a message than have
him unintentionally land on someone else's server.
With the features "expiration IP" and "expiration-URL" you
have the possibility to determine the configuration of your account when
neutralisation takes place.
As already described, in the case of HTTP access we present a neutral
information page. You can use the expiration URL feature to
route the web access to a page you have defined, where you can provide a
company logo - i.e. maintaining your corporate identity - and notify
users about temporary maintenance etc.
The expiration IP enables you to route all access to your account
to another static IP after neutralisation takes place. If you have a
dedicated server, you can thus offer alternate services.
The expiration-URL feature is, for technical reasons, only possible for
web access. Also, the two features cannot be combined.
If regular account updates do not take place, the standard procedure is
that we configure your account with a neutral IP. For web access we
present a neutral page with the notice that your are temporarily
The expiration IP and expiration URL features allow you to determine how
we configure your account if a neutralisation takes place, i.e. you can
redirect access to your account.
