our site is having problems since a week or so our forum is down, our emails are all down we have 10 staff using different aliases on the same email domain our hosting provider is bluefishhosting.com we have been unable to reach them since the last week we have contacted the company that bluefish buys their reselling account from, but they also tell us to wait another 7 days our office cannot bear this down time of 14 days
I have a web blog that shows promise of growing pretty big soon! This is a vbulletin whith chatbox and arcade games. The forum is for gamers and game modification talk. I want to keep my features such as in forum mp3 player for streaming music. I host no files everything is linked from outside sources. Even photos are linked from photo hosts. I forsee about 20-30 members on at all time browsing and chatting in chatbox. Playing in the online arcade!
I have no idea how much bandwidth all this will use up. I do know that 20-40 gig of space should be quite enough but as always I want all I can get. As far as bandwidth I have no idea what all those features will eat up.
I have looked at fatcow.com and talked to them they said their unlimited is this 300gig space 3000 gig bandwidth and they do not keep up with msql databases. I looked on BBB and they have an A+ record if compared to hostgator they have unsatifatory! The only problem is they are yearly contract only. I do not trust this! I also have to let them re-bill me at end of year and this gives them access to my account. The payment options are check,paybal, or credit.
I had asked for some help awhile ago and recieved some great advice. Unfortunately, the company I work for decided not to move at that time (between deciding to give the host more chance and also becuase we were all dreading another swich over. However, we are now ready to move.
We are currently on shared hosting and I belive VPS is the best option for us right niw (in this stage of our growth).
What I need is one that is fully managed and then some. I need someone that will provide the same type of support you get with shared hosting - meaning I can even come to them when suddenly we have an e-mail issue for example. And for things tht they don't do, at least have the patience to point me in the right direction, help me know what I need to do. I can handle the admin functions of a shared hosting site... but am leery of doing to much more without guidence...
Another thing I am looking for is someone that we can grow with seemlessly - even if it ends up resulting in going to a fully manged deciated server. With any growth, I do want want downtime or having to change DNS (that always causes us problems). I want someone we ca be with for years, allows us to grow, and is reliable/dependable. I really hate switching hosts!
What we need/our set-up/about us:
I would need at least 10 GB hard drive (SCSI HDDS) to begin with.
We currently have two seperate SMF forums (both private, internal with few users) operating on their own MySQL installations. We will probably add more forums (SMF) in the future - each with their own MySQL databases.
We have a Wordpress blog
We use Coppermine Album (it is also tied into the blog so that thumbnails of photos load into the blog sidebar)
For Transfer/bandwidth - I am not sure. I will guess at least 50G. We currently canlt send a lot of our e-mail out of our server due to e-mail limitations so I don't know exactly how much we will use.
On transfer - the majority of it is e-mail, followed by ftp usage.
I really do need someone who can handle and understand our high volumne of e-mail and will help make sure we have no issues with it. That is actually the lifeblood of our business. We recieve data from our clients each day via e-mail, and then send them back customized reports (each day) based on their data. This means we get a lot of e-mail in, and even more going out. When our e-mail shuts down - we shut down.
Our current hosting uses Cpanel and I do like it (and am used to it), however would consider a different control panel if it has the same basic features of Cpanel and is easy to use. However, I really like the fact that moving a Cpanel sitre to another one is very easy (unless that doesn't work when going from shared to VPS)
We will not be doing any reselling of hosting or anything like that - so i don't need anything geared that way. We actually will probably only have the one site, with a few other domains pointed to that. However, we may eventual create additional sites (with their own name) just for the forums.
I have seen about 10 companies listed in other threads that look really good, but not sure which I want... becuase I am hoping I can stay with who ever I pick for the next 10 years and more...
I was wondering if all hosts can pretty much handle streaming mp3 and video, or if there are certain things I should consider when looking for a host? I dont have a big budget or anything, so I guess a shared server package is what I would have to go with.
I am an independent musician with my own (very) small record label.
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.
I've read articles that said it's generally bad to use the domain registrar as the hosting company(forgot the reason though)Right now I have some domains in Goddady and 1and1, and have a Hostgator account. I am thinking about just using Goddady's hosting service so I only need to manage my Goddady and 1and1 accounts instead of managing 3 accounts.
I am going to use Wordpress.org to build the sites
I'm a customer of IXWebhosting (actually their alias HostExcellence) and I'm completely disgusted. Their latest crime is denying and covering up a security problem which allows scripts to be inserted via cache directories. I now have people complaining of Bloodhound Exploit messages from their Norton Antivirus software. It's being done by somebody else on their servers, in turn infecting everybody else (for several weeks now).
Several months ago, they began SPAMMING the error pages with search engine affiliate links, which I'm sure they collect money from. I said I wanted them off, they said "do it yourself" using custom error pages.
Their outgoing e-mail servers are constantly blacklisted.
Whenever the database or main server fails, they never catch this on their own. I always have to call or create a support ticket.
Needless to say, I'm tired of their BS.
How do I find a replacement host that takes SECURITY seriously? Are there report cards anywhere?
if I should get my domain separately from my hosting company. I'm going to buy a host gator hosting plan and I don't know if I should get my domain from them too? They charge $15/year for domains. My only problem is that if I have to leave from host gator in less than a year for some reason, will I be able to go to another hosting company and have the same domain name as I had with host gator?
We just moved a domain to a Canadian host. We want to make sure that the domain is actually hosted in Canada, how can we go about doing that? I thought of doing a standard traceroute, but usually the bandwidth is coming from the US, so at what point is it considered "Canadian hosted"?
its not actually my domain but the other day an older lady contacted me frustrated because she had lost her login info for her dog kennel site. She tried for over a month to get a hold of the company but no one returns her calls or emails. She contacted me to see if there was anything I could do. The first thing I did was fire off an email and call the number I was given. Left a msg to call me back, waited a few days sent another email and made another phone call...nothing. So I did some sniffing around and found the company had changed names to Black Wire Marketing (from teknon media). So I sent emails to them and made phone calls....it was the same phone system as the previous number.
My question is this, is there any protocol for recovering a website or more importantly the domain, if the hosting company has left town? The original site definitely resembles a flyby night reseller setup and not one that had a lot of thought put into it, wreaks of IM (why do IM people think they make good hosting service providers?).
I am just curious, I know that it is a great customer retention hook, but really, and how about unlimited bandwidth? This is my first post on the forum, and I will be asking many more questions as I want to get the inside scoop before I take the reseller plunge.
At first glance it seems as though the advertising is throughout the site and not just in the advertisement section. I know it's only $7.95, but for life? I guess if they're paying for 2 years at a time, but month to month there is no way. They would end up with a ton of registered domains, and allot of parked domains. Oh well just thought I would ask.
When you perform a migration, Plesk gives me this error. For more I search, I find what may be the cause.
Error: Unable to find domain with name 'e-domain.com'[2014-11-18 19:41:31] ERR [panel] exception 'PleskObjectNotFoundException' with message 'Unable to find domain with name 'e-domain.com'' in /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/Domain.php:950 Stack trace: #0 /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/backup/Conflicts/PleskDataManager.php(1278): Domain::getByName('e-domain.c...') #1 /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/backup/Conflicts/Resolver/UnfitSettingsResolver.php(500):
how can i do a search for all files (probs using regex) of files consisting purely of numbers?
for e.g. find:
53243.php 24353.php 24098.php
(always have 5 numbers).
seems one of my accounts has had some script run which generated a bunch of these in various subfolders, and the php file basically does a callback to www3.rssnews.ws and www3.xmldata.info, which seem to be some sort of spyware servers.
