The IP address that you are currently using has been blocked because it is believed to be a web host provider or colocation provider.
To prevent abuse, web hosts and colocation providers may be blocked
from editing Wikipedia.
You will not be able to edit Wikipedia using a web host or colocation provider because it hides your IP address, much like a proxy
We recommend that you attempt to use another connection to edit.
For example, if you use a proxy or VPN to connect to the internet, turn it off when editing Wikipedia. If you edit using a mobile connection, try using a Wi-Fi connection, and vice versa. If you have a Wikipedia account, please log in. If you do not have any other way to edit Wikipedia, you will need to request an IP block exemption
|reason=Caught by a colocation web host block but this host or IP is not a web host. My IP address is _______. Place any further information here.
. You must fill in the blank with your IP address for this block to be investigated.
Your IP address can be determined here
. Alternatively, if you wish to keep your IP address private you can use the unblock ticket request system
. There are several reasons you might be editing using the IP address of a web host or colocation provider (such as if you are using VPN software or a business network); please use this method of appeal only if you think your IP address is in fact not a web host or colocation provider.
Administrators: The IP block exemption user right should only be applied to allow users to edit using web host in exceptional circumstances, and requests should usually be directed to the functionaries team via email. If you intend to give the IPBE user right, a CheckUser needs to take a look at the account. This can be requested most easily at SPI Quick Checkuser Requests. Unblocking an IP or IP range with this template is highly discouraged without at least contacting the blocking administrator.
