    Hi

    Let's say I have a web application that does creation of millions of email accounts at for example Gmail. This web application is hosted at my hosting account at for example Hostgator. What can I do to prevent my Hostgator account from being flagged and my hosting IP to be banned?

    Buy server proxies through a provider in the BST section (GenerationX and Packetflip I can personally vouch for), then add a bit into your code to make it rotate through them at a reasonable clip every X number of account creations.

    There's a set limit I think to how many you can make per day before they give you any shit, I don't recall exactly how many but you can probably figure it out through looking around and tinkering.

    a few ideas here to make this happen
    1) get hosting through a bulletproof hosting.
    2) build proxy rotation into your script itself. its not hard libcurl has proxy built in
    3) stay under the radar. only make so many at a clip. then time out. this can be done best via cron job and or random timing.
