Easiest Automation Of VPS Solutions For Hosting Provider?

Sep 20, 2008

I'm doing some research on offering VPS hosting solutions, nothing firm yet as do we start to offer them or not.

So, what are you experiences for as automated as possible VPS hosting offering? Using multiple servers as VPS hosts etc. ready made images etc.

Or am i better of by doing custom tailored my own?

The basic plan is to offer as automated as possible, with minimal support overhead etc. using 2co/paypal/moneybookers subscriptions etc. basicly as simple, and yet as powerfull as possible. Sounds like custom tailored system is the best option.

How about just the server backend only automation wise?

Webhostforasp And Other Hosting Solutions

Aug 22, 2008

i am a new member and planning on hosting several web sites in the near future.

For the moment, i have found that webhostforasp.net is closer to my requirements, but didn't find a lot of feedback under webhostingtalk. Does anybody that has worked with webhostforasp.net would like to share his impressions?

I also checked ************.com, but though they answered my questions really fast, i ran into many negative comments from webhostingtalk members. So, i have second thoughts about it.

I want also to check on softsyshosting.com and m6.net in order to reach to a final decision (not excluding the chance of using different hosting solutions per site, based on each site specific requirements).

Network Solutions As Hosting Service

Jan 3, 2009

Any comments on Network Solutions as a hosting service?

I have never created a website and would rather not have to deal with coding and all that stuff. I planning a very basic site, but I want it to look good.

It seems Network Solutions has a really nice and easy-to-use web page software package.

But then again I have no idea what's really going on.

High-End Complex Hosting Solutions

Jun 29, 2009

Other than Rackspace, can the good folks here recommend some data-centers that have experience in handling the following solutions:

SAN (F/C, 10Gbps), 9TB usable capacity, complete redundancy, and real-time mirroring to an additional SAN in a separate geographic location.

redundant Brocade SAN switches

Servers: Quad processors, quad core, 48GB RAM, 8x146GB SAS Drives, multiple 1Gbps NICs

VMWare installations and handling.

Load balancers (preferably Brocade)

Dedicated L3 switches

I'm not just looking at providing this, but someone who can truly manage it 24/7 - management from VMWare and SAN perspective.

I saw some niche datacenters, but ran into the following problems:

(a) singular location.

(b) support for VMWare and SAN provided during business hours only

(c) no prior experience in real-time SAN replication / VMWare, Oracle/MS-SQL Replication.

Open Source Hosting Solutions

Oct 20, 2009

I have been getting multiple emails a month for a service which I have never purchased.

The information they have harvested off the internet (since I know where they found it) and have obtained solely for use in attempting to charge me is-
Invoiced To
Steven Crothers
12345 Main St.,
Detroit, MI, 48021
United States

Which is completely obvious that it is fake.

I respond to EVERY invoice with a cancelation request, yet the tickets that get opened in the WHMCS billing panel get deleted a day later, however I have tickets in there that I have opened by use of the ticket insertion form that have stayed - none of which were ever answered.

The latest ticket information-
Department:Billing And Invoicing
Date:09/10/2009 10:05
Subject:The Second Time...

It's still open without a reply.

I have put tickets into their Kayako system as well (They have two support systems, I would assume its due to poor management of their company). One of which was answered, with simply the output of `uname -a` on some server somewhere with my name as the hostname.

I than have attempted to reach anyone via livechat at [url]they constantly tell me that I am not allowed to speak to anyone until I pay my bills up to current (now remember, I have NEVER ordered anything from them, they don't even have valid information on file). Just tonight I demanded that I required to speak to a billing agent or I would be pressing harrasment charges against them for the 23 emails I have recieved in 3 months from them trying to extort money from me. They than banned me from their LiveChat software.

I have no idea what to do at this point, they are just sending me bills every month. I mark it as spam, but its frustrating to have a company trying to extort money from me on a very regular basis.

Review: Rageki Web Hosting Solutions

Aug 22, 2008

I have been with Rageki Web Hosting Solutions since the beginning of July and have had no problems at all.

The owner is great and if downtime occurs for some uncontrollable reason he is fast to keep customers informed via email.

I am happy with the use of Direct Admin for management as it provides a light and robust way to manage your websites.

Rageki Web Hosting Solutions also provides very reasonably priced plans great for those looking for entry level or more advanced hosting solutions alike.

Again all I have is Praise for Rageki and I recommend if you are in the market for a new host that you give them a try.

Network Solutions Shared Hosting Hacked - And How To Fix It

May 14, 2009

Just wanted to share my experiences with you once again. There are a select number of companies on this planet that really seem to go out of the way to be obnoxiously bad at their jobs. Comcast, AIG, United Airlines - the familiar litany. Well, my experience with online hosting would put Network Solutions right up there with those in competition for the title 'Worst Company in America.'

Here's the current problem. Yesterday, May 14, 2009, at about 6:00AM, one of my users reported that my site had come up with a malware/virus alert on his computer. This was odd, as I am not a malware host. Further, my work computer had been infected the day before, though I had only visited reputable news sites; and my own site.

Lo and behold, upon investigation I found that my site had been hacked to carry the FakeAlert-CL trojan, which had the effect of causing my computer to pretend it had been badly hacked to get me to buy some spurious anti-virus software. Essentially, buying "protection" in the Mafia sense.

Luckily for me, this is not my first rodeo with Network Solutions' laughable excuse for security. This exact same thing had happened 18 months or so ago. I realized then that a worm had infected NS's shared hosting servers, and had changed every file with "index" anywhere in the title to include an < iframe > tag linking to a malware site (from which the computer would be infected).

So here's my workaround. I downloaded and repaired the three index files which control my site. I then deleted the infected files, and re-uploaded clean ones. Being prudent, and having experience with this, I also uploaded *backup* copies with different file names. This proved wise. NS has now been hacked 3 times in the last 18 hours in the exact same way. Each time I get hacked again, I simply delete the infected 'index' file and rename my backup to replace it, then upload a new backup for later use.

Some notes: this has affected my entire Movable Type system by corrupting the templates. However, it attacks only the base index.php file; if you simply fix that one file, then rebuild your Movable Type database, the offending code snippet will be removed. Secondarily, some sections of my site (my bulletin board, for instance) do not have 'index' in the title of their operative files. If I could remove every index file from my site and rename them, I would, but unfortunately too many of the components are hard-wired for that name. Finally, I tried CHMODing the index files to 444, which should have prevented even an Administrator from overwriting or changing them, but it had no effect.

So, back to NS. I contacted a person from NS' marketing department (who contacted me after I posted a previous complaint on this board) and let him know that I had been hacked. He told me he was referring me to "third level support" (meaning what? they speak better English?). I have since been hacked twice more, and have emailed this same PR guy both times. The last time I asked for a phone call; no shock, I have not yet heard back. Maybe this post will prompt a response.

At any rate, to those of you experiencing this with Network Solutions, hopefully my solution will help you. To those of you considering a hosting provider, DO NOT CHOOSE NETWORK SOLUTIONS.

Your Opinion As A Customer: A Hosting Provider Who Couldn't Provide E-mail Hosting

Jun 4, 2009

Lets say you're a customer looking for web hosting, but do have technical experience - you know, you develop your own websites, you've had experience in this sort of thing before.

What if you came across a provider who seemed to offer a good service, they're high quality, they can host your website on their brilliant setup etc... but they do not provide any e-mail accounts with your hosting?

We're developing our own shared hosting setup, our own control panel too. Regardless of the control panel though, we wouldn't feel comfortable hosting peoples e-mail. We have plenty of experience in every other aspect of general shared hosting - but not looking after e-mail accounts nor the associated software.

To be honest I don't think that many shared hosting providers truely handle e-mail properly, and that job should really be left to the professionals.

We could of course guide customers or potential customers on why we won't offer e-mail accounts (i.e. not wanting to offer something we know we can't provide to a high enough standard) and instruct them on how to setup e-mail with another provider (such as Google, who will do this for free with limitations).

The alternative to the above is that we mask in a third party to look after e-mail, i.e. resell someone elses e-mail services as part of our hosting packages. The third party would require API access to setup/remove accounts..

What do you think? Are we just acting stupid trying to provide web hosting without e-mail hosting included? I noticed a while back Dreamhost encouraged their customers to use an alternative e-mail provider!

How To Easiest Do Backup And Transfer Of Mysql Files

Jun 29, 2008

I have following problem-i have over 20 sites on server and each site has own database.Is there a way to speed up backup and transfer or other server?

Method which i use right now it's following:first i archive entire directory using command tar -pczf name.tar.gz public_html,and then repeat with each directory.But i think i could simply archive all requied directories,but that will took toomuch time,so if i drop connection during archiving it wont be archived at all then.So i think best solution will be to create some kind of batch command which can load in background,so that means command wont stop if client lost connection.

So let's say i have 2 sites and two directories located and different places.

One is at home/site1 and other at home/site2
So i think i would need to put command into batch file
tar -pczf site.tar.gz. /home/site1 and tar -pczf site2.tar.gz /home/site2

Will that work? Also second part,mysql databases,i founded if i login into phpmyadmin as root i can see all databases.I managed to export all databases,but question will import again to phpmyadmin work.I think phpmyadmin create command for each database "if there is no db sitename_mysqlbase,create it",but howmuch i know phpmyadmin have limit with importing size of mysql database.Could that be done with import/export mysql command?

DNS / Bind - Easiest Method To Redirect A Domain To Another

Jan 2, 2007

I've got two domains (for sake of example, domain A and domain B). Domain A resolves correctly to my web server. Domain B is just sitting collecting dust. I didn't set these domains up, a previous programmer at my job did.

How do I configure resolv.conf, named.conf and the zone file(s) correctly to have domain B redirect to domain A?

I've already set up httpd.conf so that any requests for the host name of domain A will redirect.

e.g. [url]-> [url]
I just need the DNS part of this fixed (that I'm a bit of a noob at).

Do I have to do something like this in named.conf:

zone "domaina.com" {
type master;
file "/var/named/domaina.com.hosts";

zone "domainb.com" {
type master;
file "/var/named/domaina.com.hosts";
Then in the domaina.com.hosts zone file add an alias like this?

domainb.com. IN CNAME domaina.com.
Or do I need to create a domainb.com.hosts zone file with basic info emulating domaina.com.hosts zone file, and add its entry in named.conf?

Cheapest/Easiest Method Of Offering VPS Accounts On A Windows Server

After some experimenting with Linux VPS setups, I'm eager to explore windows VPS software.

Two questions I guess, first off, what is the cheapest method of offering multiple VPS accounts on a windows server? Are there any free or build in Microsoft methods?

Second, what is the easiest way of doing so? (Simple setup, as hands off as possible)

I realize the cheapest may not be the easiest and vice versa. I'm downloading Parrallels Virtuozzo trial right now, but would like to learn what else is out there.

New Netherlands Dedicated Hosting Provider

May 14, 2009

We've been reading this site for awhile a colleague, who is a member, suggested we post a request here. We are looking for a NETHERLANDS-based dedicated server hosting company (which, obviously means a Netherlands datacenter) for our single dedicated server. We're not interested in hosting companies based in other countries but offering NL servers; just those that are NL based.

Our business is perfectly legal (as explained below) and we have neither the time nor inclination to debate the merits of our needs and would appreciate respect for that position (as we have read some of the reactions to such requests by US members for non-US servers and many have been less than respectful).

That said, here are three NL providers we're NOT interested in:

Leaseweb. That is based largely on a recent post in which they indicated they shut down servers with little notice if they get even one, even unsubstantiated, complaint about a TOS violation but also because we've read nightmare stories about how they treat small businesses and individual customers. Apparently, they've become too big for small accounts and our business server is as mission-critical to us as their big business clients. We need a provider that respects small business.

Server Boost. We have a VPS with them (we won't say under which domain name or IP address) but are still trying to work out the kinks in that rather new relationship so won't use them for our dedi at this time. That VPS will be the slave to our dedi.

i3D.net. They are our current dedi provider with whom we have a Rackserver but it isn't working out for a variety of reasons, the most important being we have no remote access control panel or power management. Right now, we are required to pay for OS reinstalls and just about anything else we need that's not a simple reboot. We don't necessarily believe they are a bad provider and don't want to malign them but our experience with them makes us disinclined to upgrade to a Dell server (and we are "anti-Dell" because of our personal experiences with Dell, anyway). We don't believe most customers feel this way about since their offerings are certainly suitable for most needs.

Therefore, we're looking for different alternatives from Leaseweb, i3D and Server Boost that are reputable, provide high-quality servers and solid, English-speaking, tech support at a reasonable monthly price. (We liked, for example, what OVH was offering but their NL site is in Dutch, only, and we don't want a UK server.)

What we now have:

* Intel Quadcore 2.4 Ghz CPU
* 500 GB HDD (non-RAID)
* max 1000 mbit connection
* 2000 GB traffic
* 10+ IP addresses
* Full root access
* SSH access
* Netherlands company/NL datacenter
* Unmanaged
* No hosting control panel
* Upgradeable RAM, B/W, IP addresses, etc.
* Full hardware SLA

What we MUST have:

* Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4+ Ghz CPU
* 4 GB DDR2 RAM (upgradeable to 8 GB, if nec.)
* 160+ GB HDD (RAID isn't necessary if single HD)
* max 1000 mbit connection
* 250-500 GB traffic p/m
* 15 IP addresses
* Full root/ SSH access
* IMPERATIVE: Remote access control panel with power control and ability to complete repair and maintenance tasks and OS reinstalls remotely WITHOUT having to contact Tech Support or pay for such services**
* Netherlands company/NL datacenter ONLY
* CentOS 5.3 x86_64 Linux (minimal) installed
* Full virtualization capability
* Unmanaged
* NO hosting control panel
* Upgradeable RAM, B/W, IP addresses, etc. as well as to a newer/larger dedi in first 30-days of contract without paying setup fees
* Full hardware SLA
* Responsive, English-speaking tech support, preferably 24/7** by email or phone and response within several hours
* TOS/Privacy Policies/Legal Policies available in English without the "Dutch only" terms valid caveat
* Server/order details available in English
* Fully itemized invoices available upon request
* Server provisioned and ready-to-use within 24-48 hours after payment clears (must be guaranteed in writing)
* MONTHLY contract (with NO 30-day advanced notice cancellation clause**) and PayPal as payment option

(**Lack of these important features is why we're switching providers.)

Prospective providers should be clear that this server is for our completely legal, US-based businesses that represent high-profile individuals engaged in legal business activities themselves. We will host several websites and blogs that are business-oriented and targeted to them, C-suite decision-makers who contract for our services and their audiences.

Our sites will contain NO adult content (legal or otherwise, whether it's called porn, erotica, or whatever), warez, torrents, copyrighted material for which we don't have permission to post/use, or overtly controversial materials like anti-government, hate speech, etc. We won't be spamming, phishing or doing IRC. We will not market to or represent clients who engage in such activities, even if legal in their jurisdiction.

We are not going to be hosting others' websites and our sites/blogs aren't expected to generate excessively high traffic. We use IP addresses for NS purposes and other purposes for which separate IP addresses are needed. So, we won't need DDoS or similar protection.

Our budget is Ä125.

Please give us your hosting-provider (only) suggestions. We'd prefer only recommendations of NL-based providers you've used. SERIOUS responses only; due to time constraints, we're forced to ignore any responses that don't adhere to our request for provider recommendations or attempt to debate the merits or our needs.

Choosing A Type Of Hosting And Provider

Apr 20, 2009

my company's current hosting contract expires in May and I'm in need to find another one that will hopefully suit me better and cause much less headache.

I'll try to list some basic needs I got:

10gb bandwidth
10gb space
Mass email marketing ability! This is important!

I have a member list of about 30,000 who I email twice a week! These people are opt-in recipients of these emails.

On top of that I'd like to start mining and sending out opt-in requests of about 50-100,000 a month to NEW emails that I don't have direct permission to email.

I obviously have software to manage, clean, send out in batches, and do whatever else you have to for proper email marketing.

From some research I got the idea that I would be better off with some offshore VPS/dedicated host that won't shut us down for emailing. We will do our best to keep the bounces at minimum as well as keep up-to-date blacklists/unsubscribers.
