I registered a domain with the godaddy.com. I also have a free web hosting plan attached to it. Now i purchased(not upgraded) a new web hosting plan(economy plan.). Now I want to attach my domain with the new hosting plan. But the godaddy is not allowing me to do so.
I am a PHP/MySQL web developer and I want to take on the challenge of administering my own server.
I have Plesk installed on the server, and I imagine I will have command line access to the dedicated server.
What unknown challenges lie ahead for me? What are things to monitor to keep the site running efficiently? What should I be using to connect to the server? What tools are available to help me be more efficient?
I like to create some service plans using the cli-tools, /usr/local/psa/bin/service_plan.I am able to create a service plan, but I'm unable to create a service plan inside a reseller plan. For example I cannot "tell" the service_plan script to add the created serviceplan to a reseller plan. Is it possible to create a serviceplan inside a reseller plan, using the cli?
I currently have a small hosting plan (4 gb traffic , 400 Mb space) that I use for a few email accounts from my company.However , the disk space is not enough for what we need so I have to move the emails to another hosting plan. I'm looking for something with 5-10 gb space , 10-20 gb traffic/month , unlimited email accounts. I'm not looking for it to be cheap , just dont like the overselling idea for my hosting needs so I can pay if it's good. Also I was wondering what kind of program do I need in order to create a webmail interface so that the employees could check their email without having to use the webmail clients from cPanel.
The more I read on the forum, the more I'm beginning to consider a reseller plan.
Basically, I'm an ASP.NET/MS-SQL developer and I foresee myself developing (and possibly managing) a relatively small number of websites for people who likely have neither the technical skills nor desire to get too involved with maintaining their websites. So, I need to be able to host multiple domains, have multiple databases, and probably multiple FTP accounts.
The obvious advantage of reseller accounts, as I understand them, is that they give you the ability to provide the website owner (my customer) the tools to manage their site in more or less the same way they could if they directly set up their hosting account with GoDaddy or whomever. But, if my customers end up being people that don't want to mess with any of that, then this capability is not important. However, after looking at ResellerZoom.com, which I saw recommended in another thread, it seems the sheer capacity of resources available, e.g. unlimited databases, 200 domains, make it worth the slightly higher cost.
I see Site5 have a 5 dollar deal on their homepage, but I don't know if it's any good. I hear from a lot of people to get a reseller account if you plan to make a lot of websites. It's more expensive than the 5 dollar plan with less bandwidth and storage, so there got to be something to it. What are the benefits of a reseller account compared to that 5 dollar deal plan?
I have spent several hours on this forum over the past few days doing some research and have officially confused myself. I am a volunteer with a nonprofit organization and our online forums (running on vbulletin) are maxing out the database SQL connections several times per day. The host has a max_user_connections limit of 15 but doesn't have an intermediary step from shared hosting to dedicated hosting. Dedicated hosting is cost-prohibitive and the rest of our site has more than enough room to grow on our current hosting plan (including traffic bandwidth, disk space, etc).
We are planning to register a new domain name for the forums and move them off to another hosting provider. I donate the hosting fees to the organization and I don't have much of a budget to work with ($20/mo or so ideally). I am looking for recommendations for a hosting provider that will support a somewhat busy forum (usually only between 30-50 users online at once but anywhere between 1,000 and 2,500 pageviews per day) and also allow a stepped growth plan (instead of from shared straight to dedicated.)
I've seen Hawk Host, Siteground and URLJet mentioned frequently on posts here and over at vBulletin but I don't want to just jump into a new host and face a similar problem in the future.
Our website/app is on a shared host (downtownhost.com - who are great btw - I strongly recommend them).
Now have a question for the experts here:
We have come up with a plan to give away some freebies to our visitors and we feel there is a very good chance that we will be digg 'ed/Stumble 'd.
I need suggestions from experts as to how to go about this from a hosting perspective.
1. Go for Amazon or Gogrid.com? 2. Go for mediatemple.com or mosso.com? Not sure with all the reviews posted here.
I don't want to go for a full blown clustered hosting - with high fixed costs - we won't mind paying based on how successful or not our 'freebie' exercise works.
A little bit about our site - it's an ecommerce site running on LAMP and uses imagemagick. Users upload images to our site and tell us what they want with an annotation tool in a UI. We give em a price and they can pay us. They pick up the edited image back on our site when it's ready
- Sorry bout not being able to give you any 'technical' details about CPU usage etc., - I am more of a layman! But as I said a shared account at downtownhost.com seems to be holding up. Our current traffic averages about 100-200 visitors a day - with an average of about 50 images uploaded everyday.
- Think that the above description should give a fair idea of computing/resource requirements.
I'm about to the point where I am ready to host my website. I already have a domain but no hosting plan. In the future I may want to have several different websites each with their own unique domain. I was wondering if I choose a hosting plan for one site, can I use the unused web space for additional domains/websites?
I've officially decided to go with Hostgator but I'm having a hard time choosing which type of plan would make the most sense for; maybe there is something I'm not seeing and I'm hoping to get some additional insight...
Here is my plan; I plan on hosting multiple domains (business and personal) and atleast one e commerce website to start and it will eventually grow into about 5 down the road (this is going to be a drawn out process and I want to do it right).
The problem I have is I realize in order to get a true ecommerce website up in running I will need a dedicated IP address and SSL certificate for each site. If I purchase the Business plan it only comes with one dedicated IP and one SSL cert; Hostgator also told me that I'm unable to add an additional dedicated IP address or SSL cert to the business plan so I would have to purchase an additional Business Plan (12.95) per each site. It sounds like I could still host private and not SSL required sites on the business plan and as much domains as I want.
If I go the reseller path then the cost per month will be twice as much as the Business Plan and there is no dedicated IP address included. I will also have to purchase dedicated IP addresses at 2.00 a month and SSL certs as well so that method could get expensive.
I'm also not sure if the baby plan would suffice as well, but apparently not because there is a limit of 1 dedicated IP per plan
What would you guys recommend I do; I want a plan that will allow me to grow with them.
Just curious on what your guys thoughts were..
Also I read a previous post in this forum that someone said their SSL cert prompted the end-user to install the certificate; Being in Ecommerce this is obviously unacceptable to me.
I registered a domain name with godaddy. I host on a local windows 2003 box. I would still like to use GD's email. I went into my windows DNS server and added the 2 MX records godaddy said. MX0 smtp.secureserver.net and MX10 mailstore1.secureserver.net. There must be more than this. When I try to use godaddy's webmail mail.mydomain.com, it does not work. What else do I have to add to my Windows DNS server to make this wok.. My web site resolves just fine ...

We have a few hosting plans setup with different "allowances" for each.The website permissions allow basic html and PHP.In Windows Advanced: The website settings allow for html, php, asp and asp.net
When we change a Basic Hosting plan to Windows Advanced using "Change Plan", it will reassign the subscription/domain to use the new plan, but it will not add-on the extra features in Hosting Settings.
I'm new to building websites. Hope someone can help with answering a few questions about GoDaddy.
1. Has anyone had experience with GoDaddy hosting? How good is their service and pricing? I heard that they have a proprietary control panel, which may make it harder to switch hosts down the road if needed?
2. When I compare GoDaddy's hosting plans, with a Shared Hosting plan, for $14.99/month you can get 300GB diskspace and 3000GB Transfer.
With dedicated server, for $79.99/month you get 120GB diskspace and 500GB Bandwidth. What exactly is the difference between "Transfer" and "Bandwidth" in this case?
And based on the numbers, it appears that the Shared hosting plan allows more diskspace and transfer than the Dedicated server plan? What am I missing here?
3. If I have a website that is mostly text-based with virtually no pictures, graphics or video, what type of traffic can I support with a Shared hosting plan that offers 300GB diskspace and 3000GB Transfer.
I got a domain name with 123-reg and hosting at godaddy, set up the dns and got everything working fine.
I created a script in PHP in a .png file with the help of a .htaccess, the script basically outputs an image with the name of the filename. So say if the .png was called image.png which had the code in, I could call image.png and it would output 'image', if I called foo.png it would output 'foo' - with the help of mod_rewrite where i redirected all .png requests to the proper image.png which had the code in.
Phew. Now I uploaded the files to godaddy and the .htaccess and I just cannot get the image to output properly, it works locally but not on the godaddy server, no image is output at all, i think it is a mod_rewrite problem.
Has anyone got any ideas how I could solve this? I'll paste some example code if it will let me to help you get an idea.

- At godaddy's hosting management page, I've changed the domain name to the domain name I registered at Domainsatcost. The change has been completed.
However, whenever I try to access my domain, I can only get to the parking page. OTOH, if I associate my domain which I registered from godaddy with my godaddy hosting, I can get to my page with godaddy's domain. What could be the problem?
At godaddy's domain management -> nameserver page, it is stated that
"If your domain(s) are hosted somewhere else, choose 'Custom Nameservers.' "
Was I suppose to select custom nameserver in order to use my other domain with godaddy hosting? I have 0 knowledge with these stuff and it would be great if someone could walk me through in getting my .ca domain to work with godaddy hosting. Thanks in advance.

Here is a test JSP page
When I click on the link, I get the HTTP 400 error saying the webpage could not be found. I know the code works since I have tested it locally. Plus the code is very simple.
I am very stumped here and have tried GoDaddy’s help multiple times. They keep telling me it is a scripting issue. I am not sure how it can be a scripting issue because there is no script here. Basically, it is an HTML page with a .JSP extension.
