I am trying to download my website on to my system since i am moving servers. I tried to download the full backup using cpanel but the size of the file is 610 MB and since i have a slow connection, it means me downloading the file the whole night. While i dont mind doing that, the connection has broken thrice (once when i had downloaded 517 MB).
So i have decided to download it bit by bit. I would like to know what files i will have to download...i can think of just two...the public html folder and my database..is that it? or should i be downloading any other files?
I have created a Cpanel full backup of my website. The file is 2.65GB in size, but when I log in with my FTP client, I get a LISTERROR - [filename] and the filename doesn't appear in the directory window.
Can I still use a custom command to download this file?
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'?
In fact i am a customer of PC-CORE.net's directly customer.They send me a email to let me translate my website a few days ago.But i was in a travel then.I recieved it yesterday night. But it is too late that i cannot enter my website then.It is likely the sever ha been shutdown.My ip was 184.108.40.206.The guy rent me the space said he is powerless with it.
I did not get any backups of my site.They are gone when i format my hard drive last time.But the website's date is very important with me.
Anyone related with it?What i can do to save my site? What is going on with PC-CORE.net?
Im in the process of setting up my ecommerce store selling baby/childrens clothing items etc. But I cant decide what webhosting site to use. Ive heard a lot about hostmonster and 1and1...which one of these are better?
an ecommerce site someone is planning on hosting. They will be selling around 100 products using OSCommerce and no creditcard etc details will be stored on the server. Do you think its a wise choice to start off on a shared host? If yes, are there any additional requirements they should look out for?
After a few threads on Web Hosting Talk, I have decided to go with Magento eCommerce CMS because it is powerful and I like it
The only thing I am looking for is a host that will support it and that will let me either upgrade to a VPS, or straight to a Dedicated Server (or maybe even a co-location). Because I am a startup business, the costs need to be low (yes, I know good hosting doesn't come cheap and I know I need to put into consideration SSL).
1 major thing. It NEEDS to be in the UK.
I was chatting to one of Rackspace UKs live help support people and they priced their entry level server at "Â£255 - Â£355 per month", which being a startup is a bit of a hefty price.
So, how do you think I should start? Shared, VPS or straight to dedicated? Also, what UK hosts do you recommend?
I'd like to get IP's direct from ARIN and use with a colo or dedicated server I run a few dozen domains almost all of which are ecommerce sites the ones which accept credit cards of course have SSL and a dedicated IP all the others right now are taking offline payments i'd like to get them all setup with SSL with their own IP since they are starting to bring in more sales. Sites right now are being hosted all over the place mainly vps and shared. I want to have them all on one or more servers that I have complete control over including the IP's. I'm new to the forums but did search for arin and read a few posts about the justification and from what I read SSL is justified to get IPs. Can anyone give me more information on what I should be doing first before applying or how to go about it with them. I'm looking at arin's fee schedule and i would apply under the x-small/micro allocation how much smaller from /20 do they go is there a specific number of IP's i would get for the app fee of $1250 a year or how does that work exactly?
Topics on good hosts have been repeated over and over again, and we have seen many new emerging while many old fading, and still too many have changed. In the past 2/3 years, what has happened to your host? Get your host listed in this thread if your host has kept their service as promised in the past 2/3 years or even longer. This will become a most useful map for new people to make their first step.
Which company would be better to choose for eCommerce hosting simplehelix.com or serverpoint.com?
The first one look like specialized in eCommerce hostting (only two plans, any type of eCommerce carts and magento dowloads, special server type) the seconed is just reliable and also provides support of any eCommerce carts.
I started out with a reseller account at Webkore.net. Great company, I outgrew their services and moved to Innohosting over a year ago.
Before I moved to InnoHosting, I sent in a cancellation request (they use WHMCS)...but nothing was every canceled in their system and I kept getting invoices from them. I simply ignored them. Fair enough, right?
Now, as I've said...I've been with Inno for over a year now. In that past year Webkore.net seems to have been acquired by eCommerce Discovery.
Here is the weird problem. My account on their server was never deleted! I, as a reseller had WHMCS installed was using cron jobs to automatically send emails.
A few weeks ago, I started recieving cron job reports from cpsev1.wirednoc.net, a domain owned by eCommerce Discovery. I really wouldn't care too much, but apparently the whole WHMCS system is still active and is sending my clients emails (Invoice reminders, domain renewal reminders, etc etc...).
This is obviously something that needs to be dealt with as it's getting a little out of hand. I only had 35 clients in WHMCS when I was with them...all of which are still with me.
I've called the number at this page: [url] multiple times only to be forwarded to a voice message. I just now actually left my voice message. Emails to Webkore.net have gone unanswered for 6 months, so I'm not even going to bother with that.
What I don't understand is how my account, over a year old and unpaid, is still not only ON the server...but ACTIVE, unsuspended, and running cron jobs. I'm going to shoot eCommerce Discovery an email shortly and will update this thread if they reply, although...chances don't look good.
I have 2 ecommerce sites now hosted at 2 different shared locations, both sites offer same exact products and pricing. I am in the process of elancing out the recode/rebuild for both sites to share one mysql database, cart and to be housed together in one VPS.
I plan to put them both on 1 windows VPS (they are asp) each with its own separate IP but have heard this can cause problems with search engines especially google. I have great natural organic right now (1st position for 5 of my demo keywords) and dont want to put that at risk but getting really tired of 2 separate backends, carts, hosting etc..
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.
If I type google.com in my address bar, it forwards me to www.google.com. This is not happening for my website right now. I think its a good idea to do this, since then search engines will have only 1 main URL for the website to index.
My question is:
How do I implement this? I think this may involve mucking with CNAME settings...
