Using A Website Host For Computer Backup

Apr 23, 2008

If I get a reseller account with like 50 gigs more space (or any amount) than I actually use, can I use some of that space I'm paying for to backup my home computer? This isn't really a question of how (although I'll accept advice) but more a question of 'is this typically allowed' or 'does anybody else do this'?

Controlling Website Without Computer

Mar 29, 2009

I was just wondering if there is a way to control your website (that is, uploading, editing and so on) when you do not have access to your own "home-computer". You do have access to other computers and the internet, but these computers do not have your local root folder of course.

So is there a way to control your website, let's say, when you are on vacation.

Apache :: Accessing Website From Different Computer

Mar 2, 2014

I have 3 computers on the same network. One running apache2 on Ubuntu 12.04 and the others with Windows7. I want to access the website I set up from a Windows machine. When I type in the URL, domain.com, I get a 404 error. When I type in 127.0.1.1/domain.com I get the directory listing for the website. I have to actually type 127.0.1.1/domain.com/public_html/ before the website can actually be seen. I would like to get rid of the public_html part. I am brand new to all this.

To Find Web Host For Personal Web Site

May 24, 2008

This is my first attempt at using a web hosting company. I currently use a free service from my ISP that gives me 25 MB of space for a personal web site. After only a few weeks, I have exceeded that limit and now find myself needing much more.

My personal website will contain information of a bowling league that my friends and I belong to. I plan to have many pages of data from an Excel spreadsheet included, either in a database format, or just plain html. I also plan to have several family photos and some video on my web site. I will be adding pages on a weekly basis.

I did some research and I felt I needed something like 25G of storage for all my pages containing tables and photos. Since I am not using it for business purposes, I am looking for something very basic, if that is possible.

If anyone knows a decent host that can accomodate my needs, which is simple, but requiring a lot of space, please share your recommendations. My budget is between $5 to $10 per month.

Fast Hosting Worldwide?

Dec 27, 2008

I need to provide an 8gb file download (split into 1gb parts) that will be downloaded by 80+ people worldwide, simultaneously. I'm talking for example, they will be each downloading at 1.2megabytes per second each (this is the average speed of their home connections), simultaneously.
What are the specs or things I should be looking out for in a website hosting provider?
One service I'm looking at is advertised as 0.5Mbps in bandwidth and 100Mbps in transit, for ã40 a month. The service I'm looking at is sensical.net's colo business service (http://www.sensical.net/). What does this mean and is it fast enough? What is the difference between these two figures - 0.5Mbps bandwidth and 100Mbps transit?

Worldwide Server Performance

May 2, 2009

We are a web-based Yacht Charter company, with offices scattered around the world:
www.boatbookings.com

Currently, both our web site and our back-office business management system are hosted on a single server in the UK, with an automatic fail-over to a server in Dallas, TX, USA.

The problem we are having is that our sales office in Singapore is having really slow response times and this is very frustrating for them.

Using an application called "JustPing" we see that response times From Singapore are much slower than other parts of the world. (the cities closer to London are fastest, the ones further away are slowest)
JustPing Results

Is there anyway to improve this or is hosting our applications on multiple servers the only way to improve performance. What's the best cost-effective method of multiple server hosting?

(Incidentally, if I JutPing Google, response times are fantastic worldwide, but we know they're hosted on many, very large servers)

Domains Resolving Worldwide ON/OFF

May 16, 2008

We have few domains which resolve properly for say 1 day and again next day its not resolving.

Sometimes this ON/OFF happens several times a day. This happens when we use the 2 name servers assigned to the server.

this problem does not happen if we use a manged DNS service for the domain names.

Trying To Host A Website From Home PC

May 15, 2009

I am trying to host a website from my home computer. Currently I have it setup and it works and everything. I have my virus database updated, router update, firewall up and running, and I am ready for people to try hacking. But there is one thing I can do. I can't seem to get my website online. I go to whatismyip.com and try that IP address on both the computer I am hosting the website from and a different computer downtown but I can access it. I am currently using webs.com to tell people to download COMODO EasyVPN to access my website. But they have to download it first to be able to access my website. At one time I had to load it using the IP address I go to whatismyip.com but it took it six minutes to load and with the EasyVPN it only takes seconds. I am just wandering if my internet connection is just timing out and not letting anyone on. Is there a software I can use that works like COMODO EasyVPN but lets you type in my External/Public IP address and it go to my website. I mean my connection is slow but with the COMODO EasyVPN software it makes people connecting to my computer fast. I need a software that tunnels my connection to a clients computer.

I am using the XAMPP software to host my website!

Community Website - Which Host

Jul 9, 2008

I've had four different hosts in 1 year, and I'm noe experiencing problems again with my current host, Lunarpages. Therefore, I really want to make the right choice this time. It would be such a pleasure to see my website run without any problems for more than just 8-9 months at a time...

Anyway, let me try to describe it. It's based on the Content Management System phpFusion. It has news, downloads, forums and screenshots. The site itself is c. 2 GB large (because of forum attachments and screenshots), the download section is c. 15 GB, and the site use up about 700 GB og bandwidth each month. In the forum, there's 100.000 posts, growing day for day, of course. We have 12.000 registered members, but we only have c. 50 members online at the same time -- maximum. Throughout a week, 2.000 members log in, but as said, they are never online at the same time. The members are mostly from Europe, but we do also have members from USA and Australia.

I've had both Lunarpages and Servage as hosts, but I have experienced problems with both of them. Servage has a daily bandwidth limit which I had overlooked, and the website constantly exceeded this. Lunarpages is very, very slow when using a MySQL DB.

CPanel/WHM To Host A Website

Oct 7, 2007

am trying to set it up to host my website. After giving it the ol' college try, I might have done it, I think. I wanted input about what I have done wright and/or wrong configuring the VPS and cPanel/WHM? Please let me know what else I need to post (MX record, A records, DNS zone files, etc...)?

So far I have done:
- Initial set up of WHM
- Created a new account
- Added additional IP address t o the server
- Edited the DNS zone file
- Set up nameservers with registrar, godaddy.com

*I think this is done correctly, if I go to (www).mysite.com, I see:
Index of /
Parent Directory
Private
etc...

**I used a guide posted at (www).hostlibrary.com (link at bottom)

Website Hacked. Time For A New Host

Jun 14, 2009

I have a small but somewhat popular space-history website. Very simple HTML that I typed into wordpad, but it has long pages full of photos. Since 2003, I've been using media3.net with their business-class Windows service.

A few weeks ago, mypages were hacked, and a one line script inserted that called an Adobe Flash file. Apparently this was a server-wise attack, not just my web pages. Media3.net cleaned this up, but now it has happened again.

This is bad, because Google blacklists my site, and folks on Wikipedia get upset because there are a lot of links to my site.

How are they breaking in to media3.net? I think I must change hosts, but I don't want to put my image-intensive site on overbooked hardware with limited bandwidth.

Fast ASP.NET + PHP Hosting Server Accessible Worldwide

Am new and have done the usual forum search but did not find what i (specifially) want.

Looking for a good (shared) hosting company with the ability to run both ASP.NET and PHP sites (if possible).
The hosting should be fast and accessible in US, Europe and China.

Thus far, i have been able to find a few shared hosting companies with a bit of speed, but they will not provide both ASP.NET and PHP

Is my combination hard to find and will i need to just seperate and find 2 hosting companies, one for .NET and one for PHP?

1 Website, 2 Host Reviews! HawkHost And IGXHost

Oct 23, 2009

Didn't think this would be possible, did you?

So, I switched off of one of my providers for my website about a month and a half ago (I won't mention their name). From my previous host I switched to HawkHost.

HawkHost was amazing throughout our entire month and a half stay. When we first went to them, they converted one of our domains into a subdomain and transferred all of the files for us and did a tremendous amount of extra work they didn't have to do. They were quick at responding and their servers were blazing fast. Unfortunately, they had to pack up our stuff for us and we had to leave due to a DDoS attack. But they didn't kick us out before trying some measures first to help prevent the DDoS attack. During the attack, my website still remained online and a lot of the traffic was being thrown out by the security measures they put in place for me for free. But the attack got through those security measures after 24 hours and took down their servers. Even after we left, the IP was still getting hit and they had to null-route the IP address. We do thank HawkHost for attempting to stop it, and we do not hold any grudges, infact we're very thankful they did what they did for us!

Overall Experience with HawkHost.com:
Support : 10/10
Network Speed : 10/10
Uptime (for the month and a half we were there : 10/10
Willingness to help : 10/10


Now! After HawkHost confirmed the attack has stopped, we set our website at a different host. I hope it doesn't get attacked again, because switching hosts isn't the top item on my Fun things to do this Friday. We switched to IGXHost.com

Our current experience (only been 24 hours):
Great support, we ordered in the middle of the night and they transferred our account within an hour! (It's not a small account either). The staff was very helpful and quick to respond which is amazing because it was 1AM. (HawkHost answered in the middle of the night too). Not really sure about anything else except their support, I will update you guys! But so far IGXHost and HawkHost are about the same quality in support (exceptional!).

Anyways! I'll keep you guys updated.

We here at Data Host Direct would like to thank the staff at IGXHost and HawkHost.
