We are seeing 8 instances of GET /.well-known/sg-hosted-ping using Avalon API Client from a UK google user content IP, not seen this before anyone seen it and knows what it is?
Its blocked as googles ASN is blocked on all of the sites we are seeing it on

Are you a Siteground customer?

Yes I am

You might ask them about this, but it’s quite likely it’s not coming from them. But they might have an idea what that bot is looking for. It’s not Cloudflare-related.

Will do, thanks
I thought it may be some sort of known google thing that it does when blocked but as its coming from the user content part of google rather than from googlebot I wasn’t sure, struck me as odd that it always came from a UK IP address

Sorted: its an internal check, to be ignored
