GoDaddy Virtual Dedicated: Is The Assisted Service Plan Worth It
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?

Free Hosting And Free Domain
Do you think if a company offered free web hosting and free domains people would snap them up like there is no tommorow?

Also does anyone one how much ICANN acredited registrars pay ICANN when they register a new domain?

any feedback would be great!

$6.95 Hosting... Superb Plan...
I found this site with 6.95 hosting a while back and had it saved in my fav... but my comp crashed god forbid and I had to format now I lost it...

The site had something rediculous like 3GB space and 5-10GB bandwidth... there was a $30 setup fee but it was 6.95 after that... Anyone know of this site? or anything that tops it?

Also the part I liked most was that they accepted paypal... Which was simply amazing for me.

Move The Emails To Another Hosting Plan
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.

Shared Hosting Or Reseller Plan
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, 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.

Advantages Of A Reseller Hosting Plan
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?

Forums Outgrowing Shared Hosting Plan Already
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.

Hosting/Scaling- We Plan To Get Digged/stumbled
Our website/app is on a shared host ( - 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
2. Go for or 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 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.

Ecommerce Web Hosting? Going To Use Hostgator Which Plan? Business, Baby Or Reseller?
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.

Experience With GoDaddy Hosting?
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.

Godaddy Hosting, Mod_rewrite And GD Library
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.

the .htaccess:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .png
<Files .+.png>
ForceType application/x-httpd-php

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^(.+).png$ image.png
the image.png with PHP code:

PHP Code:

@header ("Content-type: image/png");
$img = @imagecreatetruecolor(20, 20) or die ("Problem.");
$cBlack = imagecolorallocate ($img, 0, 0, 0);
imagefill($img, 0, 0, $cBlack);
imagepng ($img);

This is just a simple test to get it to work.

Has anyone any ideas or is this post in the wrong forum?

Domainsatcost Doman, And Godaddy Hosting
I am having difficulties getting my domain which I registered at domainsatcost to work with my godaddy hosting.

Here is what I have done:
- I went into Domiansatcost's admin management and changed the domain's nameserver and ip to godaddy's hosting nameserver and ip: - -

- 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.

Godaddy Web-hosting - Can You Specify Alternate MX Records?

If I go with their hosting plan, it looks like I can create sub folders for each website, and the hosting is not a problem.

I do however use gmail to handle my mail. Is it possible to specify gmails MX servers under the account? or are they going to make me use godaddys?

.JSP Page Will Not Display On GoDaddy Linux Hosting
I can not get a .JSP page to display on a deluxe hosted GoDaddy account. I have tried the most basic page. Just to make sure I do not have a type-o, I even used an HTML page to direct me.

Here is the HTML page that has the hyperlink. This page displays fine.

Here is the JSP page that can not be displayed.

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"



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.

How Long Does Database Creation With Godaddy Hosting Take
I created a database for my site and then a subdomain.

The subdomain is already working but the database still shows pending setup. Normally, the database setup is much faster than the subdomain setup.

I'm not sure what's going on. Their email support sucks. They don't even reply on time. I can't call them because I'm overseas. It would be a very expensive phone call.

This is my first week with them. Do you guys experience this with Godaddy?

Hosting Multiple Domains On The Same Account With GoDaddy
I have a little question that I'm sure somebody more knowledgeable can answer. I had a hosting account with GoDaddy that just hosted my web site only. I had a few clients need hosting at the same time so I looked into upgrading my account to one that would host multiple domains. (this is my first time with multiple clients, can you tell?) I thought perfect! I can host all of my clients accounts from this one hosting account. I thought there would be multiple account interfaces to support this.

So when I get in there, it lets me add one of the domains I was working on and then I went to upload the files and apparently I had to upload the file to a directory off of my site. So points to

I uploaded it just to test it out and when you go to it shows in the address bar as, not, even though that is the directory path. I'm sure there's a name for this but I have no idea what it is so I wanted to explain my issue clearly.

So, I'm wondering, is this kosher? Is this bad to do or do a lot of people do this and will it affect my site? From what I've gathered so far, people only do this when they have multiple domains pointing to the same site, or am I wrong?

Godaddy Grid Hosting Mean Dedicated Servers Are Dead
I was looking at Godaddy's grid servers and it says you can have unlimited concurrent connections:


With dedicated servers if you wanted to have 2 million concurrent users you would need hundreds of dedicated servers in a cluster, but Godaddy grid hosting can do this for $4.99/month:


Of course currently give users unlimited compute cycles so if they start charging it could increase the price but godaddy don't charge for ram. Of course if you needed more bandwidth you can buy more.

Sure, Godaddy grid hosting doesn't allow videos on your server(embed's allowed) but you wanted to have a website that was at the top of digg and worldwide media outlets reported it, Godady grid hosting would be great for this.

So i guess if i had to choose between a dedicated server and godaddy grid hosting for a forum, i would choose grid hosting because i can have unlimited users online at the same time and not have to worry about cpu load.

GoDaddy Windows Shared Hosting, An Honest Review
After trying out GoDaddy shared web hosting for 2 months now, I am confident to give you a good review.

I got Web Hosting from GoDaddy in order to get ASP.NET. I looked at other hosts but they are just more expensive. So I decided to go with GoDaddy since they provide quite a lot of storage space, bandwidth and of course ASP, ASP.NET 1, and 2, IIS 7 and quite cheap as well. Since HostGator didn't have that option, I didn't have any other choice.

Server Speed & Uptime
I monitor my website using SiteUptime, and there have been 0 downtimes in two months. Not sure how closely SiteUptime monitors a website, but that's what the stats read.

Server speed is very good. For example file upload/download speed is good and doesn't lag.

Scripting Support
Since I chose Windows Hosting, it comes with ASP.NET support, and the ability to create Virtual Directories via the mini web based IIS Manager.

I was actually surprised to see this but they also have PHP 5 . On their windows web hosting package they don't advertise PHP, but after testing a simple file I was just surprised and happy .

Data Base
They give you MS SQL Databases, Access and MySQL. What I really like in their database management area is, it gives you examples of different connectionstrings for your database.

It usually takes 2-3 hours to process each ticket. The support representatives are kind and really helpful.

In a nutshell, GoDaddy really surprised me with their web hosting features, support and just wow .
