Would you be happy to host your BUSINESS (i.e. servers etc) at a datacenter or ISP that's known for ignoring spam complaints?
I am just curious because I already submitted SEVERAL spam complaints to servercentral.net but they simple ignore it. A big anti-spam list such as Spamcop not even bother to try and submit spam complaints to them and purge such complaints.
In my opinion it's a high risk to host your servers at a company that ignore spam complaints because many of their IP addresses will eventually be on spam block lists. (And because IP addresses are "recycled" I won't be happy to get IP addresses assigned to a server that was previously used by a spammer)
to colocate a 1U in the DC metro area for $100/month for a small non-profit I work with. The service necessary is pretty basic -- 1Mbps or so would do (preferably unmetered so we're not on the hook for overage charges), 1 or 2 IPs would be fine, and the only real service necessary (besides steady power and connectivity, of course) would be the occasional remote reboot and 24/7 facility access.
I've come close to settling on Crosslink Internet (web site at www dot crosslink net, silly system won't let me post the URL directly because I'm new), because they're the only place I've found that can meet that price point. Before I commit, though, I wanted to hear from you guys:
* Are they a reliable ISP? They sound sort of low-budget over the phone, and while that's not necessarily a valid indicator of reliability, it makes me nervous.
* Are there any other decent ISPs in the Northern VA vicinity that could meet this price point that you guys would suggest over Crosslink?
"IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email. The hostname (one.icv.ro) resolves to 18.104.22.168. It should resolve to 22.214.171.124. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.
Some are all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if you believe everything else is correct.
You may be able to automaticly correct this problem by using the ' Add an A entry for your hostname ' under ' Dns Functions ' in your Web Host Manager"
So everything is working fine .. I checked the DNS zone and every thing is ok.
but run this on the server : ==================== dig +noall +answer +additional icv.ro NS icv.ro. 84220 IN NS ns9.ixwebhosting.com. icv.ro. 84220 IN NS ns10.ixwebhosting.com. ==================== dig +noall +answer +additional icv.ro icv.ro. 82792 IN A 126.96.36.199
and they are wrong.
strange that the ping is fine.. and is corect ip:
ping icv.ro PING icv.ro (188.8.131.52) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from one.icv.ro (184.108.40.206): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.060 ms ======================
So my server didn't updated the ns. They are the old ns .. and the new one are
Name Server: ns1.wiredtree.com Name Server: ns2.wiredtree.com
I use Panic's Transmit FTP client on Macintosh, as well as Subversion. I constantly have the irritating situation whereby when I ftp all files to my remote site, all the invisible .svn file and folders go too.
How can I get transmit to ignore all of these .svn files and folders, because I just want a nice, clean file structure on my site. I know there is something like "svn:ignore, but I am not too sure how to implement it.
Ipdedicated.com offer full managed server and when my server died I email and asked for their help. The second email they replied the apache is running but I email back and told the apache always die almost everyday. After that I got no emails or reply. I email them 8 times and during those attempts my server kept dying for no reason at all. So I tried different email and still no luck. Dennis collado seems to be a one man show who handle tech support and billing. So I used another different email and asked about applying a new server. And just that after 5 min I sent the email I got a reply back from Dennis.
I have been receiving these a couple time a day lately and not sure what to do or how to go about checking what might be overloading the server. IF this looks familiar to anyone, I'd appreciate some helpful tips. I'm still a novice, but can muddle my way around the server if given enough guidance. Here is the email I've been getting:
"IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email. This is cPanel stats runner on host.myserverhost.com! While processing the log files for user xxxxxxx, the cpu has been maxed out for more than a 6 hour period. The current load/uptime line on the server at the time of this email is 19:20:10 up 2 days, 7:06, 0 users, load average: 15.17, 13.24, 8.00 You should check the server to see why the load is so high and take steps to lower the load. If you want stats to continue to run even with a high load; Edit /var/cpanel/cpanel.config and change extracpus to a number larger then 0 (run /usr/local/cpanel/startup afterwards to pickup the changes)."
I guess my question is, how would I go about determining what is causing the excess load? Seems to happen even when not many folks are on my site.
My server load on my server is very high, but my server is not slow, my memory usage is fine, my CPUs are handling everything fine so it's not really a problem... except I've got a lot of "sleeping processes" which seem to increase the server load but not affect the server really.
My problem is, cpbackup refuses to run when it decides the server load is too high. So, is there a way to make it run no matter what the server load is? Because I do want backups to run again...
The server load never goes down because these things are always running, so running it at early hours of the morning doesn't make a difference.
We are about to launch our UK location with UK2.net and we are wondering what are your thoughts on UK2.nets 3 Data Centers in London ? What one would you go with consider we do need the one with the best network.
so say you have a web site that's uses PHP and MySQL and then your visitors are mostly from Asia and some from the US.
You get a server from a Singaporean datacenter for the Asian traffic and you also get a server in the US for the US and nearby countries traffic.
Both servers will use the same domain. It's just that it will automatically redirect you to the datacenter which is nearer to you so if your from Asia then you will be redirected to the Singapore datacenter otherwise to the US datacenter.
I received a complaint from some of my clients, stating that they can't connect to their site because "it is not online"
Now, the site works perfectly from my PC (both on IE and firefox), I've checked its availability on host-tracker.com, and it's being spidered by google, which clearly means it is online
However, those clients' ISPs won't let them access the site for some unknown reason...I believe it's some DNS issue (probably they refuse to cache IPs from the country the sites are hosted on, which is Holland for the record)
Is there anything I can do, DNS wise, to solve the issue? It's getting frustrating because they think I'm not doing my work and I can't just tell them "your ISP sucks"..
I have partners down in Dallas, Tx. that are deciding on whether or not they want to go with "ThePlanet" datacenter. But, we just want to know before purchasing any or keeping any servers there that the datacenter is fully equipped with 24/7 monitoring, fire safety, flood safety, backup generators, etc. We're thinking of leasing 2 servers there, and we just need to know some details before going on. Now, I know there's all that information on the website and I've done alot of research on them, but I want to know from WHT's first-hand experience of ThePlanet is any good.
So, if you've used ThePlanet datacenters, can you please help me out. I'm highly suggesting ThePlanet as one of the datacenters I might use. Because it's located in Dallas, TX. it would be alot easier to co-locate the server, or check up on it once and a while or sort out any problems, etc.
Please leave a message of your first-hand experience with this datacenter.
I believe there are a few datacenters located in Charlotte, North Carolina. I was wondering what companies utilize these datacenters. I am searching for a reliable company to provide me with dedicated servers.
I'm sure your facility is great. However, we're from California. You're from Idaho or some similar place. That means you're supposed to be cheaper than our current solution by default. Unless you're in Chicago, then you're going to be very bandwidth and talent poor compared to us, so cheap real estate is the only thing you have going for you. Maybe you just shouldn't pitch Californian companies, because all we can do is point and laugh.
P.S. Terrorists don't attack infrastructure, so stop telling me that your farmland datacenter is a great site because terrorists will never attack it. Terrorists will also never attack any of my other datacenters.
I couldnt find the right subforum for this topic .. so i hope I am attracting the right viewer here.
We have a AS number in one datacenter and are going to open another totally separate datacenter.
Can we use the same AS number in both datacenters?
We use default BGP routes in a active/passive configuration. I would like to speak with someone who has knowledge of BGP, AS. happy to pay for a consultant if needed. want to make sure we set this up right.
How do small companies deal with data centers and their equipment being 1000-2000 miles away?
NYC puts the costs of cabinet and power at almost twice as much in comparison to the west coast and south.
For small businesses, is it worth to spend that extra to get a cab in NYC and be able to manage their clients hardware directly or have a cabinet far away and depend on the on site techs to take care of all hardware related issues and save spending that extra that is put on cabinet and power?
Does anyone know any information about the following datacenter is Dallas Texas:
2323 Bryan St
2020 Live Oak
We are getting a circuit to one of these two locations, and would like to find a bandwidth provider on-net that can offer us IP transit. We are in need of mainly incoming bandwidth only, and would like to do some trading if possible. A hosting provider would be an ideal match as they should have excess incoming bandwidth to spare.
I've just got to rant for a minute. Over the past week I've e-mailed around 15 datacenters asking for quotes. Out of those 15 datacenters, I've received 6 answers.
Granted, these aren't huge datacenters like The Planet and Gigenet that I'm contacting here, but come on... I'm not going to name names, but seriously, if you smaller datacenters want any business you might want to start replying to sales e-mails. This is just getting annoying. Why would anyone waste their time with you if you can't even answer an e-mail or phone call or PM?
All of my e-mails went out to datacenters that have posted in the offers section of WHT in the past 30 days.
The company that I work for in the recent year has made a few acquisitions. Doing so, means we now have clients all over the place, to be specific in multiple datacenters. We are now going to consolidate all of our servers into one location. The decision might have already been made but I would like to get some feedback. These are the top choices that our company was deciding on:
Savvis Irvine (OC2) Savvis El Segundo XO in irvine (hosting.com now actually) ATT in irvine (we already have servers in this one)
Some of the datacenters we are in now:
ATT in Irvine (not bad) Quest in Burbank CorpColo (no comment) Calpop (scary!) Blacksun/OC3 (scarier than calpop) And a few others I cannot remember. Regardless I believe this will be a big upgrade. So whatever information you can give me on the above four datacenters would be appreciated. Maybe if you know of any other top-notch datacenters in southern cali, let me know.
