Domain Cybercrime: Who is trying to hack DomainGang ?

With more than 2.8 million pageviews and 1.8 million unique visitors in the five years since our launch, DomainGang serves domain news and related content to almost every nation around the world.

Having installed Google Analytics from the very beginning, we obtain dependable data about our traffic and content reach.

And yet, despite all this steady traffic we block many entire Class B and C networks from around the world, due to consistent hacking attempts.

Just how many?

Over 400 networks per our latest count, with the majority being in Chinahardly a surprise.

Cybercrime is exploding in China, on a par with the Chinese domain economy.

We block networks that consistently engage in the following activities: spam, DDoS attacks, hacking attempts, port scanning, etc.

Other interesting locales include Latin America and its ‘bulletproof’ networks, our neighbors in Canada/Quebec and Eastern Europe. There is almost no activity from Africa, and Russia is surprisingly clean as well, for the most part.

Compiling and visualizing data is important.

Here’s a global map of blocked networks, below. Data compiled using BatchGeo.com.

    David – It’s unfortunate that due to some bad apples some legitimate visitors lose access.

    But maintaining security is important.
