    Hello Mailerforum!

    I generally don't like to join a forum and start blasting away questions on the first day :p

    But I'm over the moon to find a forum dedicated to mailers and have questions I need answered.

    So hear goes! I'm in the process of setting up a couple of mailing servers, each has a couple of /24 on it.

    Obviously I'm thinking the best domain to IP ratio would be a 1 to 1 but at the present time that is just not cost effective for me.

    So I'm sure some of you peeps on larger allocation are not using a 1 to 1 ratio.

    Can anyone be kind enough to advise and throw some recommendation on whats worked for them in the past?

    Thank you,

    You can do 1 to 10

    Is losing your entire /24 cost-effective for you? Because if you rotate a lot of IPs you'll more than likely get flagged for snowshoe.

    What exactly are you mailing (domain-wise)? This will more or less dictate what you need to do in terms of warming Ips... which leads me to ask, are you even trying to warm/earn rep or are you asking "How can I blow through a /24 in a week and get maximum results?" How long do you want to keep the /24?

    There are dozens of Qs that need to be asked before giving an answer here ;-)

    I think OP is referring to TLD mailing?

    I agree... a couple of /24 on a server seems overkill for GI.. what a waste...

    Yes not at all cost effective hehe.

    The plan I had in mind was I was going to use one of the /24's to run all my new data, then move it over to the other /24

    My data is mainly TLD but also some cables and GI in there. Yes I was planning to warm the IP's as I plan to keep them for the long haul, so if you could give me some recommendation and advice in that area that would be fantastic :)

    Thanks

    If you're just starting out and learning , you should scale back your resources and find what works.. After that you will have a better idea of what is needed without wasting money.

    yes. id learn more before wasting money on larger blocks of ips. I feel your pain. I was the same way 6 years ago. Read this forum from head to toe to see what people are doing.

    Thanks for your replies, much appreciated :)

    I have been email marketing for sometime now and can monetize what I'm doing atm pretty well, I began just using providers like aweber and Getresponse at the beginning then around 10 months ago I starting using my own servers as well and building up the volume.

    At present I'm using 3 x /26 so honestly I thought the next move up would have been a /24 as I'm finding I have to much data and not enough resources to get it out.

    The main purpose of going 2 x /24 was I like to run data through one server then move the ran data to the next /24 for delivery.

    ATM I'm using a 1 domain to 12 IP ratio, but have noticed people using smaller ratios that is why I asked for recommendations in that area :)

    Thanks,

    Why do you need to keep moving your IP space? Are you burning the IPs? What kind of data is this exactly, if you have traps everywhere, moving from one /24 to the next won't change anything.

    You would be surprised the results you could get by watching your senderscore and mailing your actives first on your IP, followed by your deliverables - over time you should be inboxing more, not less. Your delivery will only increase as you keep sending on the same IP(s).

    People seem to forget when you start off on brand new Ip's youre technically mailing with a slightly negative reputation to begin with...

    Sorry I may not be explaining myself properly, I do not move IP space I have been mailing and maintaining my IPs for a very long time now.

    I simply like to keep one allocation of my IPs to run new data on to remove bounces and gather the live openers ect then I move them to the other allocation. so I'm essentially using one allocation to clean data but at the same time its bringing in rev.

    I don't have issues with traps ect as my data comes from a pretty good source and I'm yet to hit one yet... touch wood :)

    Yes that was my main plan to start mailing my openers and clickers first during the warm up process.
