I Have Made The Right Choice Going With BurstNET?

Jan 3, 2009

if anyone can tell me if they think I have made the right choice going with BurstNET?

I was with them a while ago through a reseller however there was a lot of downtime.

(Now) I recently read that their uptime is a lot better, is this true?

Burstnet Review - Burstnet / Nocster Experience

May 5, 2008

I used Burstnet dedicated service for more than 2 months & would like to post a review here:

Initially I ordered a server before two months from Burstnet, Burstnet (Nocster) took more than a week to setup. After waiting for a week I got the server. Never received remote reboot port , though they billed me for it every month.

Initially it was working fine. After 7 days approx , my server was inaccessible , I added a support ticket to reboots & got reply that my server was suspended due to lack of reply of the abuse warnings they sent me , while I had got an abuse alert before a day informing me about spam mails somebody sent from a vps, I had already replied to the alert that I suspended the vps of spam mail user & had also got email from Burst saying: " Thank you for taking the time to contact the BurstNET Abuse Dept.
BurstNET in no way condones any spam related........"

it was confirmed that they had received my reply for abuse alert. I informed them this in ticket, they replied they did not receive any reply from me. I provided them email headers & it was clearly showing that the mail was delivered to burst, later they said that the mail was delivered but was not reached to their support desk & they reactivated my server. There was 5 - 6 hrs down time , while there was no fault from me.

See the screen shots below: ....

Tailor Made Servers

Jul 26, 2008

I've now been with Tailor Made Servers for two months (just paid my bill for my 3rd month) and my experience has simply been wonderful! Jose, from the beginning, has been helpful in all my requests and questions. Support requests are answered in a timely manner with useful responses.

I snatched up a decent performance server at a great price and so far, there have been no issues at all with the hardware and the network (Colo4Dallas) is phenomenal.

I'm keeping this short as there isn't a whole lot to say other than that my experience with TMS has been splendid up to now and based on the reviews I've read about them before signing up, I'm confident that it'll remain so. I'm definitely looking at picking up my next batch of servers with them as well.

Mp4 Videos And The Downloads Made From Cellphones

Oct 29, 2009

I have a problem with some mp4 videos and the downloads made from cellphones.

I have a plain LAMP server (centos 5, apache 2, php 5), the customers download the videos from a web, mobile section, and play on their cellphones.

The strange thing is that when they opened the video to play it on the cellphone, the video shows itself as a binary, although the extension remains mp4.

Tried moving the same video to another server, and it was played ok without any changes.. so, tested another server and after making this changes, it was able to reproduce the mp4 format:

I changed the Default mime.types from text/plain to application/octet-stream

TypesConfig / etc / mime.types

# DefaultType is the default MIME type the server will use for a document

# If it can not otherwise determine one, such as from filename extensions.

# If your server contains mostly text or HTML documents, "text / plain" isnte

# A good value. If most of your content is binary, such as applications

# Or images, you may want to use "application / octet-stream" instead to

# Keep browsers from trying to display binary files as though they are

# Text.


DefaultType application / octet-stream

When the videos out in binary, with a lot of strange characters, leaving just this: application / octet-stream

I see in /etc/mime.types and there is support for many formats, including. Mp4

However, on the original first server even if I change the above code, I can not reproduce mp4.

On any laptop or pc from the three servers I can reproduce the videos, the problem its just on one server playing from cellphones.

[Review] TMS - Tailor Made Servers

May 19, 2008

It's a bit early for a meaninful review given I've only been with them just over a month so far, but I'll keep this updated at time goes by.

Network: 10/10 - Still early days obviously but so far zero downtime. All boxes are on a 100Mb port too which is a major plus, other providers tend to charge extra for that.

Support: ??/10 - I can't comment on their support as it's something I never used.

Ultimately though, given they are an unmanaged provider, support really should be limited to tracking down hardware issues etc.

Hardware: 10/10 - Spot on thus far, and very well priced too.

Sales: 10/10 - Ordered Saturday, box online Sunday (with an odd drive combo so some work must have gone into it too).


Initially I was going to go with Softlayer, in fact I even filled in the order form a couple of times but got cold feet. Then browsing through WHT's offers section, I came across one of TMS's specials, quite frankly it was too hard to turn down. After a few searchs on WHT to confirm their reputation I ordered straight away. Don't be put off by the frankly awful looking website.

Once you are a customer, their client area has everything you need, including access to rDNS, you do not need to create a ticket & wait for a tech to do it, their system allows you do set it up.

and initially I never thought a 10Mbit port was a bottleneck for me, however I've since seen my peak bandwidth usage at 24Mbit. The free 100Mbit port is deffo a good thing.

TMS (Tailor Made Servers) Simply Awesome

Jul 9, 2008

I moved to them last week, because LT's price increase which I was not happy about. I contacted Jose and ordered a server.

Apart from the fact I got some free upgrades (CPU and HDD), the server was setup in about 1 hour! So far, their network is great and the signup process was really easy (no need to go through 2 pages of forms when signing up, unlike LT).

I also like the fact that we are provided a reboot port, and rDNS control (which LT didn't have).

I asked for custom partition aswell and the server was delivered the way I asked.

Overall, I love these guys and I think I'll be a long term customer with them.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: All Sites Down After Any Change Made In Domain

Sep 25, 2014

OS: Centos 6.5
Plesk Version: 12.0.18

Recently, we had trouble with Horde, which I Re-installed. However, since then any change that is made to a domain in plesk (changing mailbox settings, domain settings, hosting settings) All website show the default plesk page and I will have to re-run the reconfigure-all command in SSH to bring them all back up. Sometimes even that won't work and I will have to re-run the bootstrap repair command. We were actually on Plesk 11 when this started happening, so we upgraded to Plesk 12, but unfortunately this did not fix the issue.

We have around 500 customer websites on this server, so obviously the changes are made often and the sites going down on every change isn't great at all.

I have a long list of these errors in my error Plesk error log:

2014/09/25 17:31:53 [error] 818#0: *1566 FastCGI sent in stderr: "Primary script unknown" while reading response header from upstream, client: *.*.*.*, server: , request: "$

But I can't seem to find out if this is the cause, or how to fix this error correctly on a Plesk install.

Tailor Made Servers (TMS) - 2 Year Review - Still Highly Recommended!

Apr 11, 2009

I posted a review about Tailor Made Servers (TMS) back in December of 2008 however it was wiped out during the infamous "WHT Incident" but I see that it has returned, although in a very incomplete state. Here is a repost of the original review along with a few minor changes to celebrate our 2 year anniversary! (Changes made to original review will have a red font color.)

Technical Support [10/10]:

First things first, TMS are an un-managed provider so don't expect any hand holding if you run into some obscure software or operating system problems. That's not to say TMS wouldn't help you, I'm sure they would to some extent, but it should never be expected from an un-managed provider.

We have a total of 74 tickets recorded with TMS since April of 2007. Twelve of those tickets were high priority requests to either manually reboot a server or check the console. Three of those high priority tickets were false alarms, but the other seven tickets were all answered within a few minutes at the very most.

When I say the tickets were answered, I don't mean a canned reply of "We're looking into it!" then an hour later someone decides to start working on it and then another hour later it's finally resolved. If you submit a high priority ticket, it's given immediate attention and resolved as fast as humanly possible.

Manual reboots take on average 10 minutes, some have been performed in a couple of minutes while the longest we ever had to wait was about 15 minutes which is what they advertise. There have only been a couple of hardware issues, a failing NIC was recently replaced in under 15 minutes, a server died last month and a chassis swap was done in under 3 hours. Hard to find any faults here - the technical support & response times are very reassuring and above average when compared to a lot of other un-managed providers.

Network & Uptime [10/10]:

TMS are located in the prestigious Colo4Dallas facility and using an impressive blend of InterNAP, Level3, Time Warner and XO Communications for bandwidth providers. There are also InterNAP FCP devices in use to attempt to provide the most efficient routing possible and also work around any problems thanks to its intelligent routing capabilities. This differs from BGP in the sense that BGP will always provide the shortest path possible - not necessarily the best path.

The latency and throughput are what you would expect from a reasonably multi-homed provider in Texas. Typical response times to my location in Ontario, Canada are about 60ms while response times to the United Kingdom are around 110ms. Average response times to other parts of the US are nothing short of impressive, 25ms to Chicago, 35ms to Los Angeles, 20ms to Atlanta and 50ms to Seattle.

There was a network blip on March 31, 2009 that caused some instability due to an apparent network upgrade that went wrong. These things do happen, however I feel that communication could have been a bit better in terms of notifying clients in advance. Outside of that one issue the last significant outage was in May of 2007 when a faulty router module had to be replaced and the downtime was a little under 1 hour. TMS clearly has a solid network and should satisfy everyone from web hosting providers looking for maximum uptime to die hard gamers looking for the lowest latency possible.

Hardware Quality & Deployment [10/10]:

All of the newer servers are Dell so you know you're getting quality hardware. The hard drives are a mix of new and old, but they all work perfectly fine with no S.M.A.R.T errors detected using multiple short & long tests. Some people would prefer to always have brand new hard drives, but that's not very economical for a lot of providers and I'm totally OK with that.

Servers are deployed extremely fast during business hours. In most cases if you order a server in the morning, it'll be setup later that afternoon. I've never had to wait more than 6 hours for a server, but I tend to order in the morning so I can't comment on how fast deployments are later in the day or on weekends.

The best deals for TMS are listed under the Dedicated Hosting Offers forum and not on their website, so be sure to check them out. Ordering a server from TMS is completely hassle free and straight forward. You pick the server configuration, pay via PayPal or Credit Card and wait for deployment. There's no faxing or scanning of documents and what not for verification of orders - but I'm sure JoseQ does his own fraud screening.

Overall [9/10]

I can't say enough good things about Tailor Made Servers! The staff is very knowledgeable and genuinely shows that they care, the response times are nothing short of incredible and I can honestly say I sleep better at night knowing our servers are in good hands if something goes wrong.

It truly is a great feeling not always having to worry about network problems, or how long it's going to take to get a manual reboot done, or replace failing hardware if need be. TMS are on top of their game, definitely one of the most underrated and under mentioned providers on WHT!

Why did I rate TMS 9 out of 10 after this glowing review? Well, there's always room for improvement and I don't think it's realistic to rate any provider a 10 out of 10. So what can be improved? When I first posted this review last year, I mentioned that KVM access would be nice and I believe they have since been added - perhaps JoseQ can clarify on that. You know, I honestly can't think of anything major I would like to see improved at this point.

That's pretty much it; if you're looking for an unrivaled dedicated server provider definitely take a look at Tailor Made Servers! Their best deals are always under the Dedicated Hosting Offers forum so be sure to check that out or send TMS - JoseQ a message to see what they can do for you. You have my word, you will not be disappointed and the only regret you'll ever have with TMS is not signing up earlier.

Talk About Dedicated Unmetered 10mbit - Made My Server Scream

May 27, 2008

I always thought that 10 mbit unmetered was just a prank or not really dedicated to the server. But damn the server i got from www.kevworks.net totally screamed when doing some real bw tests.

Might try more tests to see if server performs and can provide the bw juice for me.

These are the stats from mrtg i got going :

Max Average Current
In 9853.9 kb/s (98.5%) 311.2 kb/s (3.1%) 4805.5 kb/s (48.1%)
Out 9553.6 kb/s (95.5%) 849.0 kb/s (8.5%) 9553.6 kb/s (95.5%)

Well cannot really post link to the mrtg as wht mods will go "aah bunny no url posting to ur site " crazy !!

So look at the screenie itself

Amazing i was actually able to pull 10mbit/s out of the server. So good work to you Kevin (kev not sure what his name is or am too tired to remember ).

PS: will be doing more bw tests over the next weeks or over the entire month, i am trying to somehow use full 3.3 TB bw over the month. (doing mirrors for distros and other linux stuff can really push the limits at times) Wondering if anyone know of places to get some beta testers to test the server's bw limits (act as mirror for your game maps, linux distros, rpm packages and w/e comes free to download)

Hopefully server wont be shut down cause bunny used the full bw potential ( i have heard horror stories of providers capping servers further and stuff when customers starts pulling too much bw (maybe cause they put server on shared bw or something).

Ping Doesnt Work Until Remote Desktop Connection Is Made

Nov 14, 2007

I have a remote XP PC: OpenVPN connection with route added for to go via the VPN

Now on the other end the network consists of:

I have a OpenVPN server inside the lan on
Its default gateway is

I have 3 Windows Servers,, 247 and 248. All gateways are set to

I have a ethernet router on the network,, it has a route added for to go via, and route added for to go via also). the is incase any other LANs are connected at a later date, if computers saw any packets not on the the 192.168.2.x subnet they would be routed to the default gateway which would then pass them to the OpenVPN router.

The trouble is, i can remotely connect and ping to the OpenVPN router fine and also the ethernet router, however when i ping any of the Windows boxes it times out. But i can open up Remote Desktop and connect to the windows box without problem, infact if i am running 'ping -t' it will suddenly come alive but only after the RDP connection is made.

Is this something funny with the routing? I want to keep the OpenVPN server internal to the network and i appreciate it is hitting the ethernet router then being passed to the OpenVPN but something is weird as it fires up RDP fine but not ping. No firewalls are enabled on any of the boxes. If i log into ssh on the OpenVPN router or ethernet router i can ping from that to the windows boxes fine.

Its as if a ICMP redirect is issued, and all is well after the 1st connection. Not too sure but could anyone be kind enough to enlighten me?

CPU Choice

Feb 23, 2007

I have a dual processor xeon 1.8 server

The 2 cpu's are xeon 1.8 with 512 L2 cache and 400 fsb

I am thinking of trying to give the server a little more power with faster processors, using the same board.

The board can take any xeon 603 pin cpu as long as it is 400 fsb.

So here is what I have found, that my server can take as far as cpu options, I am asking for more opinions on which choices of the following processors would be better for a busy server.

dual 2.8 xeon processors with 512 L2 cache

dual 2.0 xeon processors with 512 L2 cache and 1 gb L3 cache

dual 2.0 xeon processors with 512 L2 cache and 2 gb L3 cache

Please let me know your opinions, I have some ideas, but I am looking for feedback.

And please only talk about the xeons above, and not amd etc.

Tailor Made Servers - TMS - 1 Year And 8 Month Review - Highly Recommended

Tailor Made Servers - TMS - 1 Year and 8 Month Review - Highly Recommended!

Here's my long overdue review for Tailor Made Servers [url]
and I'd like to urge everyone looking for a high quality unmanaged provider to take a few minutes to read this. I'm terrible at writing long posts, so I apologize if this review is a bit all over the place - it's just so hard to contain my excitement!

Technical Support [10/10]:

DB Server Choice

Nov 2, 2008

I am about to outgrow my current server and want to upgrade to a set-up with one web server (my current one) and a new separate database server. I am very happy with my current host (Liquidweb) and want to stay with them. So I need to decide which option from them will best suit my needs.


1 - I have a standard LAMP website, but with a fairly large db and plans to add others. My understanding is that the biggest factor in db performance will be the amount of RAM I have installed. They offer a Q6600 Quad Core that will take 8GB of RAM. The only other servers they have which take more than 4GB cost at least $180/month more. I don’t think the extra CPU will make much difference, and I am hoping that 8GB will be enough RAM for a good while (my current box has 2GB, but that isn’t really enough anymore).
So I think that my choice is obvious, but I recognize that I am really only guessing and would appreciate any advice about whether or not this would, in fact, be the best server for me.

2- I can order the server with a 32 or 64 bit OS for the same price. I don’t have any idea regarding which would be better. I don’t know which system my current server is running or whether both boxes need to have the same OS. Also, I am currently running MySQL4 but will probably upgrade the new server to 5. I have read elsewhere that there is a 64 bit version of MySQL that is needed to make maximum use of installed RAM, but I really don’t understand all the issues involved here. Is there something I need to know before I set this server up to make sure that I get maximum performance from it? I will, of course, also be running PHP on it.

As you see, my understanding of server requirements is very limited.

Bluehost A Good Choice

Nov 6, 2009

I can only state my own experiences with Bluehost. As a longtime web designer I have been sending my clients to Bluehost for years. In fact I started a web service at that will do free setup and install of Wordpress if you open a account with Bluehost. I like to keep all my clients in one place. I have had no problems with Bluehost over the past five years. If a client's website starts to get many hits and more traffic than a standard shared hosting account can handle I then move them over to a real VPS. But if your just starting out Bluehost and a service like mine is a good choice.

Is Namecheap A Good Choice For Me

My forum opens very fast with his servers but now I have to go to somewhere else, I just contacted Namecheap and asked if I can host my little-busy forum there or not on their shared hosting package.

They will reply me but I want to know your advices too about Namecheap. Is it good choice to host a VBulletin forum on shared hosting from Namecheap?

Or I should buy their Business Hosting Package?

I don't want to buy VPS or Dedicated Server because I don't have much knowledge of hosting and I have heard that VPS and Dedicated servers are very difficult to manage for person like me

Best Choice For Dedicated Server?

Jul 4, 2008

I'm in the market for a dedicated server once more, and since Theplanet was going down hill the last time I was there (9 months ago), I don't imagine they've gotten much better (After the merger with Ev1).

So I need to find a new datacenter, however my problem is... I'm unsure what I want to go for - currently I have $1200 that I can dedicate to a server, so a 6 or 12 month plan would be ideal or possibly even co-location. As for the actual SERVER - I need a place that offers Linux/BSD, cPanel, at least 2gB of memory, and half way decent processors.
Any help would be appreciated - the only datacenters I have been with over the past 5 years are Ev1/Rackshack, and Theplanet/Servermatrix.

OS Choice, Control Panel

Feb 6, 2008

I'm moving to another server in the next day. I've got a choice for an operating system (as I did last time). I thought I'd ask for opinions, thoughts, and experiences with the choices.

Fedora Core 7

A little info about the sites. I host 2 Gallery sites, a fairly popular Drupal based site, a relatively static PHP site, and soon and osCommerce powered site. I use PHP and MySQL a good bit. The server is managed by Plesk 8.3 right now. Which takes me to my other question.

What other control panels are available that offer good feature sets and low overhead (resource wise)? I'm impressed with the look of Plesk, but the workings leave something to be desired. My server comes with Plesk unless I tell them otherwise. They don't offer an alternate control panel solution.

As far as technical knowledge goes, I work with Linux (SLES/SLED) on a fairly regular basis. So I'm not a complete rookie. But I definitely don't consider myself an expert.

Is A Reseller Host A Good Choice

Oct 13, 2009

I noticed a trend - I don't know if it's very new, but it can't be very old either - that quite a few people are looking for hosting and specifically ask that the host is not a reseller. Obviously they have somehow decided that a reseller is not a good choice for them.

A host that rents servers from a datacenter and then sells shared hosting and/or reseller hosting accounts or whatever other types of packages, is in fact reselling what it has bought from its provider. Despite that, it is generally regarded as a full-fledged host. Sure, they do take care that the servers are managed properly, that they are secure, they provide customer support, so they add to the original product that they have bought, but in essence they are resellers.

The first one is that the reliability, the uptime and server performance depend almost entirely on the upstream provider (the host behind the reseller). Considering that the reseller did a good job in finding a great upstream host, these things should be fine, but, unfortunately, in their search to get the best deal out there, many hosting resellers (if not most of them) end up being hosted for just a few bucks a month on highly overcrowded servers with stability and performance problems, frequent downtime etc. which will in turn translate into poor service for the end user.

The other major concern is the knowledgeability of the reseller. The very ease of becoming a reseller and the fact that almost anyone, or, as a WebHostingTalk user said it once, "anybody and his dog", can be a reseller, makes it very hard for some to trust a hosting reseller.

I would never say a reseller is a bad choice, but some things are not to be expected from a reseller. For example most resellers are a one man show and thus 24/7 365 days a year support can not be achieved without outsourcing some of it. This however is not a very cost effective solution for low volumes and this is why most resellers provide all the support themselves, which will obviously not be 24/7.

Also a reseller has only so much freedom on the server. A reseller cannot do some things and has to ask his own host to do them for him. That means it will take longer for those things to get solved.

On the plus side, a reseller often gets to know his customers and their needs and the client-reseller relationship often gets quite close. A friendly tone is worth for some people more than a 99.99% uptime statistic. If you're one of those people a reseller could very well be the right choice.

I am running some blogs on JustHost, a WordPress Web Hosting recommended by WordPress. You can visit my JustHost Review for reference.

Is A Core2Quad Q6600 A Good Choice For A CPU

Is a Core2Quad Q6600 cpu a good choice in a dedicated server compared to a Xenon or Dual Xenons?

I'm sepcifically looking at this page...[url]

Is this a good deal?

The 1TB SATA can be swapped for a 300GB SCSI at no extra cost.

Intended for a vbulletin forum so lots of database queries, I assume the 8GB ram would be good for that.

This is mainly going to run MySQL database for my e-newsletter application. I do an email blast of about 100,000 email at a time about 3 times a week. Every clicks and every opens of newsletter will be recorded in the database. Is this server a right choice?
