HIt Vs. Request - Is There A Difference?

May 10, 2008

I'm curious. I have read some stuff recently about Amazon, Mosso and other clouds. I know Mosso has switched over to a request based pricing model and I realized that I am not sure exactly what a 'request' is.

I think that a hit, as tallied by AWStats, Webalizer, etc. would be the same thing as a request, but I wasn't 100% sure if that was the case with Mosso. I actually contacted Mosso support (someone I know is considering using them) to ask them for clarification on a request. They stated that a page with two images would be three requests, one for each image and one for the page itself. I asked if it was the same as 'hits' and they said no, it isn't. This didn't sound right to me, because my understanding of 'hits' is the same as how he described 'requests'.

So, I figured I would just ask the experts on WHT.

Difference Between VPS And Hybrid

Oct 7, 2009

I am looking to purchase either a VPS1024 or Hybrid1 server from WiredTree this Friday.

The purpose of the server is to house a fairly active phpBB3 forum (10,000 registered members with around 100 members online at any one time). Now what is the benefit of going for the more expensive Hybrid1 ($99 with coupon) compared to the VPS1024 ($71.20 with coupon) - thats almost a $30 difference in price?

In layman terms - am I going to get a greater benefit with the Hybrid1 over the VPS1024?

Difference Between RAM And Burstable RAM?

Dec 5, 2008

What is the difference between RAM and burstable RAM?

What even is RAM!

I ask because I upgraded my server (again) today. I went from 256 RAM, to 512, now to 1024 of RAM. Is 1 gig of RAM good?

Also, I want to know in general if I am getting a good deal here

I have a VPS now with these specs:
Dedicated RAM: 1024 MB
Burstable RAM: 4096 MB
RAID 10 Disk Space: 100 GB
FREE Backup Space: 100 GB
Premium Bandwidth: 4000 GB
Dedicated IP Address: 2
Monthly Price: $119.99

does that seem like a good deal to you?

I ask because I am new to all of this, and don't know if I am getting jipped.

Should a site on this server run fast, if it is a high traffic "tube" site?

Difference Of Used Space Between Du -hs And Df

Jul 31, 2008

I have a partition /dev/sda2 which is mounted to /webroot.

Today, I find that I can't upload any files via IPB (running on lighttpd)
So, as usual, I went on SSH and tried df in order to see how much space is left on the server:

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2 20641788 19483292 109856 100% /webroot
Since lighttpd is running inside chroot, I thought it was the log files but even after I deleted them, it is still at 100% usage.
After spending some time, I couldn't find any large files so I did du -hs to see which folder is using large amount of space.

web1:/webroot# du -hs /webroot
2.2G /webroot
I'm without a clue on this as what du -hs is telling me and df is different but it seems like the partition is really full.

Any ideas?

Here is the output of tune2fs for reference:

What's The Difference Between Ssl Certs?

Dec 10, 2008

you can get really cheap ones, like $20/year, but you can also get really expensive ones, I've seen over 1k per year.

What is the difference between these? Right now I just use self signed but eventually I'll probably want to get a "real" one to suppress all the warnings. (newer browsers are bad for that, they make it look like the site is down, to a typical user).

Difference Between Managed And Unmanaged

Dec 4, 2008

I think I'm ready to take the plunge for an unmanaged dedicated server but before I do,

I was wondering what's involved when managing a server (brief summary)?

I've been reading these pages and I'm sure this is within my capabilities.


Obviously there's more to keep it ticking over smoothly so that's what I'm not sure about. I'm going to go for a server at Limestone Networks with cPanel.

Does Virtuozzo Make A Difference?

Aug 29, 2008

As a VPS customer, are you more likely to spend slightly more on a provider providing the same specs but Virtuozzo instead of HyperVM? Why or why not? I'd love to hear some people's opinions on the matter, as I know people are very divided as to whether Virtuozzo is better than HyperVM or not.

Difference In A VPS Vs A Shared Hosting..?

Jan 9, 2008

can someone explain the difference in a VPS vs a Shared hosting..?

All I know is it's your own server or virtual..?

i am trying to set up an acct now and having some serious problems.

I can't even find the File manager to add files, images, etc.
add email accts, forwarders..etc..

Please help the host's tutorial didn't give me much. Icalled support & they want to charge us to ask for support since it is a un-managed vps. I did manage to update the NS and add the hostname...so I think there are only a few more simple steps. BUT I can't believe the file manager is not there or email set-up.

it is a linux VPS with cPanel

The Difference Between Webhosting Companies

Sep 9, 2007

I've been personally scanning the web and looked through different webhosting sites and attempted to compare their prices and hosting features. I found that m0st sites offer identical packages, same promises at minimal pricing difference. I've found it very confusing and I'm in dilemma deciding which one to go for. Is it the company's reputation that becomes a deciding factor for this? What if the company is new and they boast that there servers are not so populated therefore possibly better performance?

Difference Between My Present Setup And A VPS

Nov 3, 2007

presently I have hosted my site on a shared hosting platform. I would like to know if it would be a wise decision to move away from shared to VPS.

My site is hosted on "Compaq ProLiant ML370 G3 Xeon 3.20GHz/2MB Cache, 2GB DDR RAM, 146GB UltraSCSI Hard Drive" which is shared.

Now if i move to VPS with the following specs,
Disk Space = 6 GB
Monthly Transfer = 100 GB
RAM (upgradable) = 128 MB
Backup Space = 3 GB
IPs= 1
Monthly Price= $9.99

I am playing $10 monthly for my shared hosting account.

The above specs for a VPS if from buyaVPS.com

I am concerned about the RAM, would 128 MB be enough to run a couple of sites.

or would it affect the speed of my site as compared to the shared hosting account setup.

Difference Between Cheap And Affordable Web Hosting

Oct 21, 2009

Prospective web hosting clients have to understand that there's a clear difference between a cheap hosting service and an affordable one.

For one, an afordable service has to do with the budget of the client, meaning the cient has a an amount he will like to spend on a web host account while a cheap web hosting service has to do with the price of the product in relation with the services offered. For example a shared host that you get for $10 will definitey have more features than a shared that cost $3.99.

You have to know what you want before taking an action that you may regret later.
