Creating An SSL Certificate - Www Vs No Www

Apr 25, 2009

When you create a SSL certificate for vs, is the "www" vs "non-www" decided when you generate the CSR (for example, in cpanel/whm)? Or is it "decided" when you actually purchase the certificate?

Creating A New Partition

Mar 6, 2008

The server I got from LayeredTech has two hard drives, obviously they set up the first hard drive with Linux etc.

The second hard drive is just there, not showing any partitions in 'fdisk' when I checked, so I assume they just leave it blank in every new server for the owner to deal with however they want.

I've been looking up guides to create a new partition for the full size of the hard drive and then mount it. However, it hasn't been very successful. Everytime I created the partition in fdisk, I have to set a size, and then when I mount it, it only says that the drive is ~98MB big.

Is there a way to partition the drive to its full capacity? And then mount it somewhere on the system? Or anywhere I can go to to find out easily?

My main computer and server will use the same internet (ive got a 5MBS line but right now I am just doing an expirment so I dont care if its slow.)

theres a laptop which connects wirelessly using my neighbours (i dont have wireless) so thats a whole different IP and differnt ISP.

and my dads computer which is about 3 KM away.

So I want to do it, store like a couple of word documents

Creating A Forum

Apr 3, 2008

I want to create a forum and have not got any idea in where to start. All I have at the moment is a PhpBB2 template which I would like to use.

The few questions I have are:

1: Do I need to purchase Webspace, if so which are recommended?
2: How would I install the template to the webspace and would the users login information get stored in a seperate database or would that come with the web hosting?

All help would be very much appriciated as i have no idea where to start and how to get it up and running.

Creating Resellers Using 1and1

May 9, 2009

I have a dedicated business III linux root server (CentOS + Plesk) with and have two domains purchased through them. What I want to do is set up resellers and then the resellers can point their own external domains to their reseller packages. To test the process, this is what I have done...

In the control panel (where I have my own list of domains), I change the nameservers from ns/ of to ns59/ and then proceed to set up web forwarding to my servers IP. Now, after setting up a reseller account through Plesk, I log in and click add the domain After waiting 24+ hours, when I type in, I get the 'address not found' message through my browser. Clearly something is not set up right.

The only way I can host external domains is to use the domain control panel in the 1and1 screens to transfer an external domain to my root package - not an efficient way of setting up a reseller account.

Does anybody have any guideance on where I am going wrong? Do I need to set up my own nameserver for reseller clients to point their domains to?

Creating Subdomain To Point To A Different URL

Jul 29, 2009

I have some URLs like:


Now,I would like to create an alias/sub-domain for this URL. For example:
[url]-> [url]

[url]-> [url]

how this can be done? Do I have to create a subdomain for this? But when I try to create a subdomain throught the OLM control panel, it asks me for the real path i.e. '/var/www/html/subdomain_folder' which I don't have in this case. Secondly, can this be done without modifying any information in the DNS? Changing DNS costs be $5/change from OLM

Creating A Dedicated Ip Vpn Connection

Aug 1, 2009

I've created many vpn connections in the past using private ip addresses allocated automatically but I haven't really found much on making a vpn server that hands out a dedicated ip address.

The problem:
Basically, I have Windows Server 2003 x64 Enterprise and an extra public IP address that is unblocked from the internet. I have a private server (Windows Server 2003 Enterprise R2 i386) sitting here at home that is behind many firewalls (both my isp and my own) that controls my x10 light system, etc.

I have custom written software so that within my home network, I can goto my server's IP address via a web browser and http address and bring up a control panel that controls my lights, etc. Everything works great, but when I'm on my mobile phone, I cannot access this nice control panel because it is on the internet outside of my home network.

I am wondering if there is a way to configure my public web server to act as a VPN server, accept public requests from this IP address and forward them onto my private home server that would have a vpn established 24x7. I haven't found much documentation on doing this, and I'm not entirely sure what to search for.

Creating An FTP Account With Permissions

May 27, 2008

I have a dedicated server with no control panel. I have a main, root FTP account. But now I'd like to create an FTP account with access to just one folder.

For example, I want the FTP account to only be able to view and upload files only to ""

It would also be nice if the new FTP user could only modify/delete the files that he uploaded.

Creating Your Own Nameservers Or Using Datacenter

Jul 15, 2008

Just curious what the benefits are to:

- creating your own nameservers on your dedicated server
- using your datacenter's nameservers
- using your domain providers nameservers

I'm wondering if using your own nameservers uses server resources, so it might be best using your datacenters nameservers?

Creating You Own Mail Server

Nov 13, 2007

When an account is created in WHM, it is given an MX record of : 14400 MX 0

However sometimes people have their own MX records, that can be added easily in WHM.

Is it something that is simple to set up your own mail server, so that you could offer it potential clients?

Is this something that can be done in WHM/cPanel?

Creating Subdomains Dynamically

Feb 28, 2007

I have basic Html and webdesign skills other than that zilch

I am working on my assignment for uni. and wanted to know if I can create multiple sub domains when I am hosted with a webhost.

I want to be able to do the following:users can sign up and get a subdomain of their choice.

users are allocated a limited webspace

The access to file types need to be controlled. In the sense that users can only upload/download certain file types like html, htm, jpg, gif, zip etc.

Users can have forms that work only within their subdomain.

for example the domain name is

the user signs up for [url] where "mysite" is the subdomain.

the user can have a form at [url]

This form should not affect the other subdomains hosted by users. Just in case someone screws up the entire site should not be down.

Is this possible? if yes, any pointers on how I can go about getting this done?
Would the webhost help with setting this up?

Any good webhost I should consider for such a setup? Any other things I should consider like data transfer / bandwidth Would this be a very expensive affair?costs?

WHMCS Not Creating Accounts In WHM.

Dec 10, 2008

I installed WHMCS on my server and for some reason it is not creating the account in WHM after someone signs up. I tried installing Cp creator as well and for some reason that is not working either. So I now know the issue is is somewhere in the communication between the gateway and WHM. I am guessing WHM is where the problem is located, but then again I do not know. If you have any ideas please tell me because I am in need of whatever I can get. I am losing patience with this because I have been trying to setup this server for over a week.

Creating Filters On The Server

Jun 26, 2007

I have been using IMAP for the last few years, but I find it difficult to retain my carefully built set of filters across PC and laptop changes.

Is there a way to set filters at the server level so that they work at all times whether I am using Webmail (Horde or SquirrelMail) or a PC or a laptop? Kind of a set once and forget it thing?

I can see the email filtering option in each domain's cPanel, but I am not too sure it's the most robust option.

Which SSL Certificate

I want to use SSL on my website.


I don't really get the differences (and it seems all companies offering SSL offer different types of certificates.. don't even know where they overlap)

Can someone recommend where I could get an SSL certificate and why I should choose between a $15/year one and $100+/year?

I am running a site that currently has a Geotrust SSL cert installed (Plesk 7.5.3). That certificate is about to expire and I am going with one from a new vendor. My question is, do I need to generate a new CSR before requesting the new certificate or do I use the CSR from the current one and just upload the new certificate file (overwriting the current one) when I get it?

Creating Subdomains In A IIS / Windows Environment

Jun 24, 2009

I am trying to create a subdomain on my dedicated server myself without paying 20 bucks to get it done through the host. I've been able to create the directory through IIS Manager and have it setup to point to a specific IP.

I'm not entirely sure what to do from this point on....When I type in the subdomain on the browser, it says it can't find it, so I'm guessing I have to do something through the DNS but not sure on how to do this.

It's IIS 6 on a Windows 2003 Server.
