upstream's block 205.238.192/18.
If it is a singleton hole in a /18, your most net-friendly action would
be to voluntarily renumber. The provider's most net-friendly action
would be to indicate it was non-portable.
(There's other servers elsewhere that won't get renumbered.) If I tell the
Internic that ivan's host number has changed, will that update all the
domains served from it?
