Dynamic IP address preventing IP ban?

Elimin80r asked 2 years ago

Hey, my ISP provides me with a dynamic IP, like most people i assume, and this IP appears to change roughly every 3 day. Wouldn't this mean that any IP bad against you couldn't last more than 3 days? :confused:

Yes and no. 😀

If the site bans your single IP, then once your IP changes, you can get back in. However, if you keep getting banned, eventually the site will ban the entire block.

If they ban like this:
123.123.123.1 - banned then your IP changes and you get 123.123.123.2 and it gets banned and your IP changes to 123.123.123.3 and it gets banned, eventually, they'll just ban 123.123.123.* or 123.123.*.* depending on the IPs assigned to the users ISP.
