Pingdom helpfully offer a RSS feed of their monitoring nodes (https://www.pingdom.com/rss/probe_servers.xml) unfortunately, it’s messy, poorly constructed and not simple to extract a nice list of IPs out of so you can add them to your firewalls.
I created a simple script which extracts the IPs from this XML feed and present a list of IPs in both plain-text and HTML.
The output can easily be copied into the allow list in your firewall configuration and the list is updated real-time from Pingdom themselves!
Often when running a web hosting business you find you want to make changes such as price or even configurations at a specific time, and sitting at the PC 24/7 isn’t always the best option.
I’ve been developing the “WHMCS Scheduler” which enables me to easily schedule database changes, which are then executed by minutely cron.
At the moment I am looking at having “Add” types, Domain Price change, Product Price change and “raw” db change.
The module isn’t quite ready for release yet as I am looking at making the add forms much prettier (as you can see it’s a quite ugly). I’m also looking to add a lot more features to enable web hosts to easily configure and manage changes, and making it all much more user-friendly.
Any comments on this, or suggestions PLEASE leave in the comments or contact me directly as it will all help make the first released version awesome. 🙂
I was developing this site for my college IT project. It is designed to follow “Web 2.0” principles and is designed to incorporate a lot of AJAX functionality, creating smooth user interaction with the backend of the system.
This was my first public module for WHMCS, the VPS247 Module enables easy integration with the vps247.com VPS platform and enables complete control over the Virtual Machines to enables easy provisioning and management of your customers VMs.
This module includes a huge variety of features and really takes advantage of the VPS247 API, and even uses some not yet documented API functionality to provide an great tool for resellers and other hosts wishing to utilise the platform.

The website has been developed to help give the charity a better web presence and boost the charity image, as well as providing families with detailed information about events and much more.
Through this project I have also communicated with designers who created the initial design, a talented CSS author who I worked with to improve site design and cross browser compatibility. And developed an admin interface to allow the committee to easily update and manage the events, news and articles.
