Will this cause server complications or issues?

Change Host, Change Domain And Getting Search Engines Up To Speed

Feb 5, 2008

Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.

2 Issues:

#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect
We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file

Redirect 301 / [url]

The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. redirected to their new website (i.e. Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???

#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:

New Company
Short Meta Description

What steps did I miss in this transition?

What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?

Seeing Site After Host Change

Aug 2, 2007

I have just moved hosts, I exported my DB's from my old host and imported them OKto my new host. I then carried out a HOME FOLDER backup of my old host through CPANEL and (I think this is where I went wrong) reinstalled that backup on my new host. Now I can't access the home page on the new host, even when I use the temporary IP.

Host Will Only Update Domain Name Server (DNS) In Batches, Takes Several Hours For A DNS Change, Normal?

Feb 10, 2009

Host will only update DNS in batches, takes several hours for a DNS change, is that normal?
Well today my mail stopped working and it turns out the A record for mail was deleted. How it got deleted I don't know.

I called my host and after speaking to 2 techs, they said that have added my request to a batch, and that would update in a few hours.

I said to him, batch? What can't you do it instantly?

He said thats not the way their DNS works and any DNS change would affect thousands of other sites they are hosting.

Does anyone know what kind of dns system these people could possibly have where they can not reload a single zone?

And by affected, I think he means the sites will go down for a minute or so, while it relaods every zone. Is this really the case, or are these people just idiots?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Change Plan Via WHMCS Causes Dedicated IP To Change To Shared

Feb 21, 2015

I have a client on a dedicated IP, today we needed to downgrade the web hosting plan. As the web hosting plan puts users on a default shared IP, this plan change also changed the dedicated IP to the shared one causing some propagation issues for a small period of time.

I have contacted WHMCS about this asking if they had a way of changing the clients plan but keeping the IP address intact as this could lead to some very undesirable outcomes. They explained that it is not their fault and to contact Parallels.

I know I can change the plan directly in Plesk however by initiating the plan change via WHMCS, everything is automated.

How To Keep Email On Current Host And Forward Http Traffic To New Host

Apr 11, 2008

I'm configuring a website for a client who has moved their web hosting to downtownhost, but is keeping their email hosting with their current provider. They do not want to configure an MX entry on DTH to autoforward email back to their current provider because they don't want their email to pass through DTH.

In order to do this, do I keep the nameserver entries on the current provider the same, and configure an http redirect to point to DTH? Or is there something else I should configure on the current provider?

How Important Is The Country The Host Is Based? Host Overseas?

May 21, 2009

I'm wondering if you can tell me something about your experience with a host/server in a different country or overseas.

My webpage will be mostly frequented by Australians.

What do you think is the advantage and the disadvantage of having a host in your own country and having one overseas?

I'm thinking about stability, traffic speed, peak hours in different time zones, customer service, ....

What are your experiences?

Blue Host And Host Monster Is Operated By The Same People

Aug 3, 2008

I was with Blue Host and their support and service was pretty bad. Servers going down all the time, and chat support was terrible. Then I moved to Host Monster and received the same kind of service/support. I later then figured out that Blue Host and Host Monster is runned by the same people. For example, I opened up a tech support ticket with Host Monster and then they replied signing their signature with Blue Host. So I got the same service: terrible tech support and servers kept going down. Now I'm looking for a new web hosting. I a few people here gave Host Gator some good reviews. I hope Host Gator is not run be the same people that runs Blue Host and Host Monster.

Host Gator Or Hawk Host

Jun 16, 2008

If you had to chose either Host Gator or Hawk Host which would you go with and why? Don't bring any other hosts into consideration just compare these two. This would be for a standard website, forum, and a few downloads if it makes a difference...nothing too fancy.

First Paid Host - Which Host To Chose

Dec 12, 2007

I have just made a personal website using photoshop, html, css and php. My site contains an index page, a gallery page with 8 photos, a contact page with a form and an extra page with some quotes. I am planning to use a paid host for the first time. Based on feedbacks from some of my sitepoint friends, I decided to go in for shared hosting. I thought of using as they have the option of a monthly billing cycle. I thought that I have the option of changing my host after a month if I am not happy with them. I have also read a lot about A lot of sitepoint members seem hooked to it.

1. Can anyone give an opinion as to which host I should go in for? Hostdogs also give a free domain. Is there any reason I should go in for Hostgator instead of Hostdogs?

2. One more question, I have heard that once I have a site running, I can earn money through the advertisements placed on it? How do I place advertisements on my site?

3. One last and very important question is whether it is right to go in for shared hosting at this point of time. I just read this


When you look for a suitable host, be sure to check out the amount of bandwidth that will be available to your site. Even a site that doesn't require a great deal of data transfer per month could run slowly if you're hosted on a shared server; particularly if you are on the same server as a more popular or bandwidth-intensive site.
The more sites hosted on a server, the more likely they are to compete with each other for available resources, including bandwidth. This is why you may notice a reduction in server response times during busy periods, or during a sudden peak in traffic at a busier site on a server that you share.

This made me wonder whether I should go in for shared hosting. But then mine is a personal home page which may not have so much of traffic.

4. What does the paragraph below mean? How does one handle ones registration manually?

Self-Management (no cost)
Select this option if you prefer to handle your registration manually.Your web host can establish service with any Top-Level Domain (TLD), international or domestic.

Windows Host Or Specialsit ASP Host

Dec 31, 2007

I will be setting up a site which uses ASP.NET 1.1. I know versions 3.0/3.5 are available, but they are not yet V2.0 compliant. Anyway thst is not the issue - just context.

Would like your advice as to whether it would be better to host this site with a company who looks as though they are specialising in ASP; such as DiscountASP, or Softsyhosting, or go with a general Windows hoster such as Steadfast, Fluidhosting, or 3Essentials?

I know nothing about ASP, so I don't know whether it is not at all neccessary to have a host specifically knowledgable about it, as I am unlikely to ever have problems with it, OR; I will most certainly have to address ASP issues sometime, so it would be essential to have support who really knows ASP.

Do You Allow IP Change

May 17, 2009

A client of mine just recently asked for a new IP. His subscription near to expiry date.

He considering to renew but only will renew if I can give him a new IP. Not to buy another but instead a new IP to replace the old one. If it helps, he use the vps of his to run proxy, a socks proxy perhaps.

I am familiar with proxies and have quite an experienced running several group of successful proxies thus asking for an IP probably means his old IP is more than 50% blocked.

What do you think? Should I just change his IP?

IP Change / DNS

Apr 24, 2008

We are moving to a new rack at our DC. Now the IP addresses will change.
BUT.. we have a mailserver running, and all users are pointed at the current name "" which itself is pointing to the old IP.

So far so good...

BUT we need to move that server to the new rack, and so we need to change the IP. But if we change the IP in the DNS, it will take till 24 hours for all the providers to propogate the new IP. For those users, the mailserver will be offline.

How can we fix that properly? So that no-one has any serious downtime?

Anyone got a clue on how to do so?

Change From Share To VPS

Oct 28, 2009

I am teetering on the edge of over using my shared account and have decided it is time to move on to a VPS. This has been a long time coming, but the economy has held me back and now I am running out of options. I have looked at several hosts and just wanted some recommendations. Since this is the first time to run a VPS, I assume a managed VPS is better for me. I am currently looking at and since they are both well reviewed here. I would just like recommendation on what to consider based on my wants.

I do not need much horse power behind the server as I have just pushed passed 20meg of ram at my current host; about max for them. I need a LAMP setup (PHP5, MySQL 5) for 4-5 sites of which only two get any real traffic, the others are just family blogs.

So this is what I think I need, please feel free to make suggestions on hosts or other considerations.

1. 256meg of RAM.

2. 5-10 gig of space

3. CentOS

4. Control Panel - Have used CPanel

5. Less than 200 gig of bandwidth.

6. 2 IPs.

7. Can use Wordpress MU
