Using A Website Host For Computer Backup

Apr 23, 2008

If I get a reseller account with like 50 gigs more space (or any amount) than I actually use, can I use some of that space I'm paying for to backup my home computer? This isn't really a question of how (although I'll accept advice) but more a question of 'is this typically allowed' or 'does anybody else do this'?

Getting A Domain From Host

If you're buying domain name plus hosting form a reputed company I don't think you should worry but it is always good to read the TOS thoroughly before you sign up a service.

Different Host And Domain

Apr 12, 2009

I have just bought a domain from Namecheap and am trying to transfer it to my web-host Reseller Zoom. Namecheap is asking me to provide two nameservers from my web-host to transfer. Do I give Namecheap the two websites(ns1arbi...) or the numbers(207.210...)?

Getting A Domain From Host

Dec 18, 2008

How reasonable are domains which are i8nside hosting packages? Read a lot about this, people mostly saying they should be avoided, but give no real examples, so I do not know whether to get a domain from a host, in particular.

Maybe someone here has corresponding experience, maybe some second-hand at least?

How To Transfer My Domain Name To The VPS Host

Oct 20, 2008

I just recently switched from a shared hosting to a vps hosting. And I'm a bit confused on how to transfer my domain name to the VPS host. When I signed up I choose the option "Transfer my domain to here" Is there anything else I need to do? Or I just wait for it to be transfered after i supply the auth code? Sorry this is my first time using a vps type hosting.

Should Domain Registrar And Host Be The Same

Sep 8, 2008

The more I read and research the more confused I get. Issue: Business #1 hosted on local ISP, no pressing need to move it. Business #2 started out selling (not ecommerce) a couple items related to business #1 so I created pages for them on B1 site. B1 is no longer active, B2 now has a lot of items for sale and needs to get itís own site, eventually ecommerce, but not right away (not a lot of time right now). I own the name for B2 parked at Network Solutions & itís up for renewal (in a few days). I can move the domain register & get a website on one of the bigger hosting sites for about the same cost as Iím now paying for a private registration at NS. Is it stupid to pay for private since the contact info is plastered all over the website anyway? Most of these hosts offer a free domain registration. Then I read that itís better to have your domain registered somewhere other than the site host in case there is a dispute.

Iím thinkingómove registration to GoDaddy now. Keep researching hosts. If I (ever) decide on one that offers free registration I can get another name to park on the main domain that is regíed with GoD? Or would the free domain automatically be considered the main domain at host where Iíd have 1 c panel & add-ons?

I need to make sure I can add ecommerce to the site in the future.

I created the original site in Front Page 97 which is of course no longer supported, I no longer even have a fully working version that I can find since I upgraded to XP, but I have a front page editor & Cute FTP to update the B1 site. So Iím in the market for another simple site builder, I donít write code. I also have a dial-up connection only, so I donít think an on-line builder is a good option.

Oh, and Iím on a tight budget but not looking for a free hosting ďserviceĒ. $10/ month maybe?

I didnít even know anything about CPanels and add ons and sub domains until a couple days ago. Info overload,

I eventually want to end apying for this host and start andn account with another. so the question is: when I transfer a domain, can i transfer a database as well?

Clarification Regarding Web Host, Domain Name

Oct 25, 2007

I had just sat down to click on the "buy now" button of a web host service provider when I just had a few more doubts.

I am faced with a few queries like the domain name I need to buy. At the moment, I have not made a proper site for anyone. I am experimenting with a few example sites only. One of my good friends, who is a cricket coach told me that he needs to modify his site. He told me that I can use his site to experiment and learn. So I am now trying to make a site using his images, header etc but with a few modifications. His site contains a home page, a contact page, an image gallery and also a registration page where he wants the students to give their details like name, age, school and submit the details.

Now, I have just managed to have a home page, a contact page and a plain gallery page with a few images. I also made a registration page where the student can submit the details. But I have not been able to test the form on my page to see if it works.

Now this is what I want. I do not have a site of my own now. But I need to have a web host who will give me php support so that I can test whatever page I make. When I am satisfied that I can venture out and make a website for somebody, I intend to start offering my services to my friends (for a nominal fee or even for free if it is going to help me to learn. I do not want to take money for a sloppy site or take my friends for a ride. I want to be able to offer quality service for whatever I charge).

My question now is this. When I need to register for a domain name, is it a good idea to just have a domain name like ( if it is available or a similar name). Then can I try out the various pages that I make on this site? Once I get my domain name, I need to download a ftp client in order to upload my files, isn't it? Once I am a little confident and offer my services to a client, I make a site on my PC with all the files required. Then do I upload the files to my own domain name to show it to the client for his approval? Or should I have a domain name of my client's choice and then upload it there before making any changes that he wants?

One more question. In my gallery page, I have a few thumbnail images which shows a larger version on hover. Now I can upload the pages which my friend has provided me. But my friend will have many images which he needs to be able to upload himself instead of having to depend on me? I know that I need to use PHP for this. But I do not know the exact method. Can I be shown the way or directed to a tutorial? Will I have to let my client know that the size of the images should not exceed a certain limit? Being a layman, he will not know how to resize images which I can easly do in photoshop, isn't it? What if his images are too many and exceed the amount of webspace that I have?

H-sphere Host / Email Not Going To Own Domain

Nov 18, 2008

One of my domain is hosted with a company who has h-sphere. Last one year everything was smooth and I was very satisfied with them.

3 days ago I found some of the emails stopped sending to the recipients. When the visitors create an invoice they will get the invoice by email and I will get a copy too, but now I noticed that these emails are not going to all the mails for example, when a customer create an invoice it should go to and What I found is it is not coming to and if the customer has a gmail address then it is not going too. but if customers email address is then he is receiving it.

What Is Your Best Reseller Host And Domain Registrar

Jun 16, 2008

I'm interested in maybe moving all my reseller hosting and domain registration from United Hosting and Low Cost Names respectively... So I'm interested in hearing what you are using and why... I'm a freelancer who resells space, I live in the UK and am wanting the best companies to work it for me and my clients...

A few reasons why I want to change right now is that United Hosting just doesn't offer enough space for me, and I'm finding it more and more expensive for the value I'm getting. Though they are good as they allow me to edit php.ini files, have ImageMagick, and offer webmail to my clients etc. I do like Low Cost Names, but again I'm finding the lack of CNAME records a little disappointing.

So... what are your best reseller host and domain registrator to you and why?

1and1 Won't Host A Domain Name Without Extra Charge?

Jun 7, 2009

I was looking for a domain name and registered it with 1and1 last year, for UK 11 pounds approximately. I then found that they were also charging me approx 30 UK pounds every six months for web hosting space that I did not ask for as I have a great host elsewhere. I have gone to their site and tried to cancel the web hosting while retaining the domain name but it only allows me to cancel the domain name, which I don't want to do. I have tried contacting them multiple times over this additional charge and get stonewalled every time with a standard response that the money is due on my contract. In the circumstances I would like to transfer the domain name to another host as renewal is a couple of months away, but I'm scared that they'll find some way to stop me doing that? ....

Controlling Website Without Computer

Mar 29, 2009

I was just wondering if there is a way to control your website (that is, uploading, editing and so on) when you do not have access to your own "home-computer". You do have access to other computers and the internet, but these computers do not have your local root folder of course.

So is there a way to control your website, let's say, when you are on vacation.

FTP Clients Are Not Working On My Computer

I have been using Vista 32-bit with FileZilla for 2-years on this computer. I haven't made any recent changes to my system, but suddently NO FTP clients work.

I tried FileZilla and FireFTP (firefox extension). Neither can connect. FileZilla just gives a timeout error. FireFTP has been "connecting" for 5-minutes. No success.

I tried to bypass my Linksys router and go directly through my cable model. They still do not work.

I *CAN* connect to an FTP site using telnet command.
