i have one Question regarding MX-Records, i cant solve myself. Why is an MX-Record not allowed to contain an Ip or a CNAME-Record? As far as i know, the Record has always to point to an A-record which includes the Ip. Anyone here, who can explain why thats the case? Is there any RFC Dokument where this is explained?
I am planning to host my personal website which will be a bunch of static pages for the time being with the possibility of moving to PHP/Pearl CMS later.
For this, I think that a basic hosting plan of about .5-1GB space and 5-10GB bandwidth would be well enough.
Can you please suggest me a host which would cost around 2-3$/month and has a moderately good service? I came across companies like Umbrahosting and HostPC which are cheap. Do you have anything to say about them?
Moreover, some hosts give combo offers of webspace+domain registration. Is it wise to register the domain through the host or to register it separately through godaddy etc?
I've created loads of sites before, mostly using high end VPS or dedicated servers. I'm somewhat new to shared hosts, having used just 2 before. The 2 being:
1. Hostmonster - brilliant. Yes, it's oversold badly but it's service is second to none and I never had an issue on a medium-traffic site. However, I do know they phone you to verify your account, and I currently do not have possesion of a phone (travelling).
2. iWhic. Had some serious downtime at one point, but else reliable. Customer service OK. Basic plan does not support unlimited domains.
I am looking to make a personal blog, possibly a travel blog or car review site.
I may still use iWhic, but I'd like to be open to suggestions:
[requirements]Unlimited domains 5GB Diskspace Unlimited Email Accounts 20GB+ Bandwidth Reseller would be nice (host my friends) cPanel (this is a must).
[budget] While technically my budget is unlimited, I would like to stick it to the $5-10/month mark. Pay per month is preferable.
I like the idea of just a big oversold host, cause they are generally reliable and I won't be using that much resources and the bonuses (such as Adwords credit) are generally useful.
I've noticed that theres really a shortage of freebsd web hosts which surprised me at first because I've always considered fbsd an os built from the ground up to be a server. That also happens to be the os I have the most experience with. I can only guess its because in comparison to the linux community the freebsd is relatively small and not as well known.
So basically what I'd like to do is rent a dedicated server, run freebsd 64 on it, and hopefully get a small successful business going. I've been looking around a lot for reliable freebsd servers (I really don't have the upfront money to do colocation) and I've found one that offers me 500gb disk space and 10mbps unmetered bandwidth (or 3300 gb/month I guess).
My first question is could someone please clarify unmetered bandwidth. In the past pretty much every host I've looked at offers a set amount of bandwidth (like in gb), and I'm not completely clear on how this whole 10mbps fits in with that.
My second question is more general. Really I'm looking for honest opinions on the ease of breaking into this business. I'm sure theres a lot of people who start up and shut down constantly which contributes to the reputation of a lot of smaller hosts being unreliable, but is this a feasible goal? I can really put in any amount of time necessary but I only have about $500 to start out.
I'm new here and I just want to start my first web site. What I need is just something basic: email, web stat, stability, etc. I do not need lots of space and bandwidth (of course, it is best if it is upgradable). Any suggestion on hosting company with lower budget plans? I hope I can start from a cheap monthly rate, and can upgrade in the future when needed.
And I have some questions when I look into different hosting plans:
1. I found many hosting plans offer free domain, so I can save may be $10 for the domain name registration. Would there be any disadvantage for using the free domain provided, like it may not be portable in the future?
2. After this first web site, I may build a few more web sites in the future. I found many plans offer "unlimited domains" to be hosted. Does it mean I can just build new web sites using the same hosting account without paying extra? Would there be any limitation or disadvantage for this, compared to using a new hosting account to build the new website?
My friend want to design his family site as i have good knowledge designing web.But I don't know about hosting,its rent ,how to host,on which server hosting will be good if you have basic suggestion kindly reply.
I have a pretty powerful Dell machine that I would like to turn into a server that would be available on the Internet. The reason I want to do this is because I need to run 2 programs (1 is a trading platform and the other was custom made for me) and I think a hosting company will say no if I ask them to run programs on their server.
In general, I know very little about servers and I need your help! How can I turn this machine (running my 2 programs) into a server available on the Internet? Someone told me I need to install IIS but I am sure it's more than that
I tried installing Apache and, later on, Wampserver. I also tried looking up this topic in Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site, Using PHP and MySQL.
My goal is to see, on my home computer, how my new Web pages would look as I work on them, and that includes things like includes, which can't be seen on a regular home computer (mine is Vista). Later on, I also expect to play around a lot with PHP.
OK, how am I supposed to do this? Is there a folder on my home computer where these files should be? Do I need to install them on another computer on my home LAN?
I just don't get these first basic steps; I don't know what to look for.
so ive had powervps and they i thought they were good well i just got cirtex for my moms small business and we had some issues. the guys at cirtex were very helpful and fixed my mail issues and even offered to give me a free dedicated IP.
I want to be able to do some testing on a Windows Server. Instead of finding a domain and finding web space I figured I could just use one of my own PCs as a web server.
However, I've never done that before and have no idea what I would need.
Does anyone have a tutorial of what needs to be installed (OS, software, etc) in order to setup a Windows web server? Doesn't have to have any features other than supporting ASP. And I'd need to be able to access it from the internet via my ISP and a port.
I am considering moving my webhosting homepage to another network, so clients can still access our webpage when the network is down.
Because I use 4PSA DNS Manager on the server in the other network, I cannot run Plesk on that same server. They could be conflicting. I had more reasons of not installing Plesk on that server, but I forgot.
I would however host my mail on the old server, located in our own network, but with e-mail fallback, so we do not lose any e-mails that our clients have sent us.
Is such a configuration hard to configure? The server just needs to work as fallback server/batched SMTP server for 1 domain.

how do we know if our blog spent alot of resource on server (shared hosting)? can we monitor it, so if i knew i spent alot of resource i can move to another webhost (maybe VPS) before they suspend my blog?
I would expect the second - to be replaced by the logged in user. The doc says, the user is logged if the document is protected. I do protect the whole directory using directory match. Without log in I fail to retrieve the document in question.
I own a dedicated server and have 3 cpanel for each of my 3 sites in my WHM, I was wondering how much resource would each cpanel account use?
Reason I'm asking is because I have a couple of other sites i'd like to add to this server but I'm not sure if I should simply add them as domain add-on's in one of my current cpanel accounts or if it's ok to create another for each site without using up my server's resources.
