    Hi friends, when renting a server, I always scan the ip blocks assigned to my box and lookup all the domains that still point to the IPs that I now control.

    Oftentimes I find a number of domains and take advantage of this. For example, I found a gay porn domain pointing to one of my IPs assigned to my box so I setup a vhost for that domain in apache and put up a quick page with gay porn videos and affiliate banners. For domains with numerous links, use the "ErrorDocument 404" directive in your config. Example is a hentai domain that used to host numerous hentai links posted all over the various forums. I got a ton of free traffic from this one, redirected them all to a single page. really quick and easy method with lots of potential.

    Bonus: scan IPs to see if they used to run a DNS. This really does happen and you can score from some guy who abandoned hundreds of domains.

    Sometimes the IP is of a primary DNS of a working domain thats been relying on a seconday dns all this time. Never happened to me but this happens, people are sloppy.

    So obviously email the admin and notify them when you see any of the above.

    How are you doing this?

    Sounds interesting.
    As skinnyboi asked, can you clarify this?
    As well as this, if you don't mind:
    Unique process though. I haven't seen this particular method shared on BHW before. Thanks!
