I have a VPS and when I signed up I was told by the provider that the server was based in a UK datacentre. However, I've just done a search on the IP address for my VPS and it comes up as 'The IP address is assigned to France'.
Does this mean the server's actually located in France?
Just a question about hosting your site in the same country where your main targeted visitors is located. It is my belief that I should host my sites in the same country where I the targeted visitors are. Am I correct in saying this??
So.. US Focus Site should be hosted in the US Canadian Focus Site should be hosted in Canada And UK Focus Site would be hosted in the UK??????
I intend to subscribe to a VPS and I'm trying to decide whether to go with a company in the US or in my home country, Singapore (which is on the other side of the globe).
Price wise, US web hosting companies beat their Singapore counterparts hands down. The prices in Singapore are easily 2.5 times that of the US (for equivalent specs).
But in terms of server round trip times, Singapore is much faster for local users. (99% of my users will be based in Singapore.) A ping to a US server takes an average of 380ms, compared to 13ms for a ping to a Singapore server (from Singapore).
In terms of reliability, both are the same.
1. Is the server round trip time really the main bottleneck (from the time the user clicks a button to the time she gets a response)? Or should I not be worried about this?
2. What is the recommended hosting option (US or Singapore), taking into consideration just two factors: price and speed?
I would like to set up a new site in English but the subject matter is in another country. Is it better to host my site in England or the States because I understand Google sorts out queries by IP address. Is this correct and will I be penalized for setting up someplace else?
we have a server where we run sites and emails, but now we are going to buy a offsite email solution (based on ms exchange) in order to have our emails running when our web server is down.
But at the momment we run our own dns at our webserver using our own nameservers, in order that our emails keep working during a webserver downtime, we need to host our dns server at another location. So the offsite email company that is based in usa, said to us that they can host our dns at their datacenter in usa.
So i will have a configuration like this:
Webserver >> location: Spain Mail Server >> location: USA DNS Server >> location: USA
note: 99% of my website visitors came from Spain
So my question is:
Does it matters in terms of speed/performance having my dns server located in usa?
So in a simple way, will my website will it be fast with the dns located in spain, or having it in usa is exactly the same in terms of speed/performance?
I am almost ready to choose my host (as reseller) but I would like to know how is possible to determinate the importance of server location ?
In fact am located in Switzerland (middle Europe) and my targeted customer are especially located in my Switzerland, France and Belgium. In Europe is difficult to find nice host reason why I take a look for US hosting. It is a lot important to choose a host near my country ? It is just a story of access time to a website or something else ? Actually I have some website hosted in France and US but I don't see really a big big difference when a site load...It is a story of maybe 1 or 2 seconds more...and sometime the site hosted in France (and so more near to my location) take little more time to load..
I plan on doing a small, well maybe not too small project and I was wondering if you guys can help me out. I am familiar with some server companies but what I need is strategic locations across the US.
Only dedicated server providers and NOT resellers.
US EAST -NYC -NJ -Washington D.C.
US WEST -Seattle -LA -SD -SF
US MIDWEST -TX -CH
US SOUTH -Miami -Georgia
I know a few, but I will be looking at this list, your suggestions and buying servers from the companies. Please also list your personal experiences with said companies. I will not take Aug 2008 registration with 1 Post count seriously. This is a serious project and I have some money to spend. Let's just say enough to cover the expenditures and then some.
how can i do a search for all files (probs using regex) of files consisting purely of numbers?
for e.g. find:
53243.php 24353.php 24098.php
(always have 5 numbers).
seems one of my accounts has had some script run which generated a bunch of these in various subfolders, and the php file basically does a callback to www3.rssnews.ws and www3.xmldata.info, which seem to be some sort of spyware servers.
This is serious, please do not find the thread as SPAM, waste of time, or useless. I'm doing my research while at it.
Current Provider: ThePlanet CPU: Dual Core 3.2GHz (seeking 2.8GHz Dual Core or better) Memory: 1GB (seeking 1GB or more or better; unknown technical specs) Harddrives: 400GB Harddrive (seeking 400GB or more or better) Cost: ~$320/month (seeking at this price or cheaper) Bandwidth: 1500GB @ 100Mbps (seeking more than 1500GB, but @ 100Mbps)
So help me find providers other than ThePlanet (good hosting, but not good enough to help advance the webhosting business through over-selling). I am seeking for specs at, around, or close to the ones I gave above (monthly fee also). Reliability is a very important factor!
for a SMTP server / hints at how it might be done to accomodate the following :
One single email will be sent. If it doesn't get sent on the first try by one server, another server at another location will attempt the connection and will send out the email then.
Is there a prebuilt solution that anyone knows that will help with these things ? If not, do you know of any ways that this might be possible to be done - even if you don't know the exact details of how it should be done - any help in finding out something like this would help .
Note : Linux / Windows / FreeBSD / Solaris is fine. So whatever OS it is, it's fine by me.
I am being hacked & I don't know how they are getting files on my server. They are doing it on two of my domains, I suspended one and then they got it on the other. My FTP access log does not show anything suspicious..
I have a problem with one of my domain. Some users around the world cannot access the website, but they can ping and traceroute the server without any problems. I am able to access the website perfectly.
Site URL is www.djluv.in
And we are using IPB 2.2
Moreover if theres another domain on the same server, they can access it.
There are about 25-30 users who are facing this problem, but from different part of the world so I cant even say ISP problem.
APF has been shutdown, no Ban Filters on IPB or cpanel.
What are the possible reasons why they couldn't access the website? how to fix the problem?
what the max number of hits is a quard core server with RAID disk system can handle, it is running on a Linux with separated MySQL server?
The host says there are no restrictions on the bandwith, but somehow it is strange we always only have MAX 300 users online (24/7/365) now I wonder if it just is that way or if some users might be denied access from time to time when they try to enter some of the websites hosted on the server ?
Maybe you know a monitoring service or something that can tell if this is an issue.
