I have ever made a DNS Server change and I was curious how this is going to affect my e-mail.
Lets say this is my URL - www.testURL.com
I also have my e-mail setup as MyName@testURL.com
I now have a new host so we are going to change the DNS settings so www.testURL.com now points to the new web host. Is this going to affect my e-mail address MyName@testURL.com or do I also have to make a request to get the e-mail changed as well?
I set up my own webserver earlier this year using a dedicated server from my hosting company (IIS, win2003), for some reason two of my websites on there are not being listed by Google (or any search engine) at all. Could there be something wrong in my setup that can cause this to happen?
our company is ordering a new dedicated server and we are a little unsure what we should choose as far as the full hostname and nameservers of this one server.
This server will have a couple different websites on it, but really, there is only one BIG website on it... let's call it abcd.com.
While most would pick a hostname of host.abcd.com for instance, if at all possible, we would like the domain name part of the hostname to be something different than abcd.com. We own a domain name that doesn't point to anything yet (unuseddomain.com) and we were wondering if we could use that domain in our hostname.. host.unuseddomain.com.
And instead of using abcd.com as the domain name for our own nameservers (ie. ns1.abcd.com, ns2.abcd.com), we would like to again, use the unused domain name we own (unuseddomain.com) for the nameservers domain name: ns1.unuseddomain.com, ns2.unuseddomain.com.
Will this work? Is this perfectly acceptable?
Since the one website we really care about on this server (the one we got the server for in the first place) is abcd.com, is using the unuseddomain.com for the hostname and nameservers (as above) a bad choice in anyway regarding email deliverability? I understand that mail ISP's (hotmail, yahoo, etc.) do all kinds of checks on hostnames (PTR), etc... and we want to make sure that we aren't hurting ourselves in anyway by using an "empty" domain name that we own as our hostname's and nameserver's domain name.
For instance, if we send mail from the abcd.com account, it will use mail.abcd.com (22.214.171.124) as it's outgoing mail server... Hotmail will see this... do a reverse-dns lookup on 126.96.36.199 and see host.unuseddomain.com. See what I'm saying? It all will work, but will it toss up red flags?
Currently I am using Linux + cPAnel and using the port 25 for email sevrer. Currently we facing 1 problem is, some user's ISP is not support port. May I know how can I add additional port into server and allow users to send mail by different port?
I have had enough of email problems that constantly happen on a server. For about three weeks now I have been dealing with email issues that I am going out of my mind. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a email scheme that will work. Here is what I would like to do. Disable Exim COMPLETELY. Either setup a server for email only or find a email solution. Email will be pointed ONLY by way of DNS.Once I get email fixed on this box it works for a day and next thing you know it's all messed up again. Somehow etc/localdomains and etc/remotedomains either vanish or get over written plus a bunch of other things including permissions.All I know is this is getting ridiculous.I don't want any sort of email system on this box. I want all my email to go though DNS only to another server. We already have on service that we use for Exchange, so all the MX Records point to that server, but email still has to interact with this server first, which I don't want it to.
I am just a newbie with linux and ssh.I know that we can control the server with ssh. SSH is faster and more secure than Web control.I need your help about with ssh:How to change the email password?How to add email address?How to disable/remove email address?How to forward email?Pleaser help me with one or more question above.My Server installed with Centos 4.4 with Cpanel 10.Thank you so much in advance.Longpt
"Lunarpages Web Hosting is scheduled to undergo maintenance this Saturday, January 17, 2009, at our San Diego location in order to upgrade our internal systems to be more energy efficient in our power usage, a major step in our initiative to Go Green in 2009. Unfortunately, this means that some of our servers will be unavailable for a short time while we upgrade these systems. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Below, you will find information on how to track the progress of our upgrades and the scheduled times that our servers will be undergoing these improvements.
The following times are our three scheduled maintenance windows for this upgrade. Please note that the information is in Pacific Standard Time (PST): * Saturday, January 17, 7am-10am * Saturday, January 17, 10am-1pm * Saturday, January 17, 6pm-9pm " will this maintenance affect the rank of my website in google and other search engine?
I am just wondering if the Global financial crisis has any negative impacts on hosting providers and IT sector? Do the crisis consequences lead to hosting sales decrease? How does the World hosting industry experience financial crisis? How can hosting business owners comment the current situation in the World?
I am considering a server from Iweb wich is based in Canada.
My question is about search engines especially google. My site will be targeting US visitors and I am in the US. When google and other search engines see that my IP address is in Canada will it have any affect on search engine ranking for the regular us google.com? I don't care much about rankings on google.ca since my visitors will mainly be in the USA. anybody have any insite on this? I also want to mention my domain name will be a .com domain
I currently have a domain on Server 1 (Linux, Apache, Ubuntu, Matrix control panel).
This server does not have any spam filter, so I have moved all the email accounts to Server 2 (Linux, Apache, Fedora Core, Plesk) which does have a brilliant spam filter; and have changed the DNS record for mail.domain.com to the IP address for Server 2.
Emails are being successfully received on Server 2.
On Server 1, when an email is sent through SMTP to an address at that domain, it does not send it to Server 2, it gets delivered to the hosting account for the domain on Server 1. So what I am guessing is happening is that Server 1 detects the domain has an account on the server, and instead of looking up the DNS info for that domain, just assumes it is on Server 1.
What I need to do, is force Server 1 to send email for that domain to Server 2. Is this possible, and if so, how can it be achieved? If more info about the server is required for a solution please let me know and I'll provide what I can.
Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.
#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file
Redirect 301 / [url]
The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. OldWebsite.com/contact.html) redirected to their new website (i.e. NewWebsite.com/contact.html). Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???
#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:
New Company Short Meta Description www.OldDomain.com
What steps did I miss in this transition?
What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?

im making a website and my friend told me that first i have to change the name of a server on the cpanel for configurate the publichtml files. i dont see where i can change it. please be specific if you are going to reply and thanks for read this.
I have a client who has his own hosting account, and wants to leave his e-mail on his own hosting account, but his website on my hosting account.
On his own hosting he has created a sub domain called shop, and pointed its A record to the IP address of my server. On my server I've setup his domain name, and created the sub domain shop. That all works fine.
The problem I have is that the site under the shop domain needs to send an e-mail to email@example.com. Now my server thinks the main domain is setup on my server, so it sends the e-mail to itself.
I'm justing wondering how I can get the server to point the mails back to his hosting?
A previous host I've used said they had to add the domain as a remote domain on the server, then they had to make some changes to /etc/localdomains because I was getting errors trying to send mails to the address.
I have a reseller package with HostGator.com , and I had one of my personal sites on it.
The site was growing too fast, and taking up too much of my reseller package, so i bought another normal hosting package from hostgator. They did a complete site copy onto the new server (same account name for site, just on a different one of their servers)
Old: (URL address blocked: See forum rules)~midnight/ New: (URL address blocked: See forum rules)~midnight/
I did this swap over 7 days ago. It was successful, everything worked, did my DNS swap and i thought that was it.
Now for the confusing part. when i type in my domain ((URL address blocked: See forum rules)) it shows up perfect, as it should, as it does with 75% of my members
For the other 25%, its showing up as the old server. I have been onto my domain supplier, and they said all is fine at their end, they are seeing the site as they should, have been onto hostgator, and it works for them, they cant understand what it can be.
Not only this, but people who can get on, might still get the old servers at times. People who cant get on, can get on from different computers in different houses (hope that makes sense)
I was about to change the site back to my reseller package and scrap the new hosting, but said i would seek advice from other webmasters first.
Has anybody ever experienced this before? How is it solved? What can i do?
Hostzio is down still, so I'm planning on moving my websites to yet another server/reselling account. I was wondering if my account with Hostzio is still active, if I can transfer the domains to another server without any problems? There would be about 10 domains I'd have to transfer from my old account to the new one.
is there any simple write up or method to change the main server IP in WHM/Cpanel without screwing anything up? I have some new better IPs I wish to use for the servers base IP and accounts but I'm not sure what exactly needs to be changed to make the transfer without breaking anything.
I have purchased a dedicated server because my existing host gives me a database error during high traffic. the error is
"Cannot connect to MySQL: User admin0506 has already more than 'max_user_connections' active connections"
Now in my dedicated server I have root access and a Plesk control panel with admin access. I have created a database but I don't know how to change the parameter "max_user_connections". Please help me because I am loosing lot of business due to this issue.
