This evening, we’ve released a new version of the RBLTracker service, which includes all sorts of new features, including:
The custom RBL feature lets you add custom RBLs and URIBLs to your account, which RBLTracker does not normally check.
If you have a paid or in-house RBL that you’d like to use, you can add it here, and centralize your monitoring with RBLTracker, and take advantage of our automated checks, and alerting functionality.
Yandex Safe Browsing Support
RBLTracker now has support to monitor the Yandex Safe Browsing database, alongside the Google Safe Browsing database.
The Google and Yandex Safe Browsing databases include lists of website domains that may be dangerous to visitors, because they are suspected of phishing or malware.
The Google Safe Browsing service is already built-in to both the Chrome and Firefox web browsers, the two most popular web browsers on the internet. If your website is compromised because of an outdated WordPress or Drupal installation, your visitors will receive a warning, telling them that YOUR website is dangerous and should be avoided.
A full list of changes included in this release are available below. Any questions or comments, please let us know @ email@example.com
Release version 1.11
- Added support for monitoring the Yandex Safe Browsing database.
- Added support for custom RBLs and URIBLs that the RBLTracker system does not normally monitor, for example, paid or internal RBLs.
- Added support to download invoices from the billing section of the portal. Customers can also add more detailed billing information through the Profile section of the web portal.
- Added additional pricing options for customers with more than 1000, 2500, and 5000 hosts using the Ultimate package.
- Added an option for customers to delete their accounts.
I’ve released version 1.3.2 of the PEAR Net_DNS2 library- you can install it now through the command line PEAR installer:
pear install Net_DNS2
Download it directly from the Google Code page here.
Or, you can also add it to your project using composer.
- added support for the EUI48 and EUI64 resource records (RFC7043).
- fixed how we handle the return values from socket select() statements; this wasn’t causing a problem, but it wasn’t quite right.
- added some error messaging when the socket times out).
- before we cache the data, unset the rdata value; this was causing some JSON errors to be generated, and we don’t need the data anyway.
Now selecting which RBLs to use with RBLTracker is even easier than before!
As of today, customers can create custom RBL Profiles which let them select from over 60 RBLs, 20 URIBLs, and the Google Safe Browsing database, and then apply this profile to multiple hosts, removing the need to customize each host separately.
Customers can even mark one of their RBL Profiles as the “default” profile, and it will automatically be used anytime a new host is added to the system- either manually, or using the bulk host loader.
How Does This Work?
From the RBL Profiles section, give the new profile a unique name, and click “Add RBL Profile” to select which RBLs to use:
Then either edit a host and select this new RBL Profile from the drop down, or select the RBL profile when adding a new host:
RBLTracker is a fully automated RBL monitoring service, which checks your IP addresses and website domains against the most frequently used real-time black lists (RBLs) and Safe Browsing Databases.
Don’t waste time by manually checking all your servers yourself- RBLTracker does it automatically, without any user intervention.
The RBLTracker system is an automated service that scans over 60 RBL’s, 20 URIBL’s, and the Google Safe Browsing database, to see if any of your IP addresses and website URL’s are currently blocked.
As of Sept 1st,, RBLTracker is offering a pay-per-check pricing model through its new Ultimate package. This new package lets you add as many hosts to your account as you like, and rather than paying for a certain number of hosts, you pay a low, scaled price per-check.
How does this work?
Per-Check pricing means that you can monitor an unlimited number of hosts, by simply adding credits on your account towards checks. When the credit on your account runs out, the checks stop- it’s that simple.
The cost-per-check scales with the number of hosts on your account. The current per-check pricing sheet is as follows:
- Between 0 and 199 hosts, the cost-per-check is $0.0050/check
- Between 200 and 499 hosts, the cost-per-check is $0.0048/check
- Between 500 and 999 hosts, the cost-per-check is $0.0045/check
- 1000 hosts and up, the cost-per-check is $0.0040/check
Put as much or as little credit on your account as you like- it will never expire, and we’ll let you know when your credit is running out.
How many hosts can I really add?
Really, you can add as many as you’d like! We’ve already had a customer that added over 6000 hosts to their account!
What else comes with the Ultimate package?
The Ultimate package includes all the same features of our Enterprise package, which includes multiple checks per day, SMS notifications, and much more. See the pricing page for all the package details.
