I have an existing server running cpanel that I would like to change the hostname on. What I am curious about, is the effects on the rest of the server if I go and change it. From what I can tell, the current host name is being used all over the place, and I don't know if cpanel updates everything on it's own, or if I would need to manually update everything after I change the name.
I set up a site several years ago for a client. The files were (are) hosted on their local server, not at a domain host. It was a difficult install because of that (as I recall). I have not heard from the client in three years.
Yesterday they called to say the site was down. Here is the error: "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)"
If I try to access the site with www.sitename.com I get a request for a password prompt. If I try to access the site without www I get the error mentioned above.
i was hosting with the planet and moved to ecatel for some issues ,i used to get cpanel for just 25$ from theplanet ,here ecatel asks me to get license directly as they don't sell cheapest i see on web is 38$ is there any other place i can get the price theplanet gave me
Just received this from cPanel... it is a substantial price increase (33%). Should be fun explaining to customers why they will start to be billed more...
Earlier this year we released cPanel VPS Optimized as part of our ongoing effort to provide quality web hosting automation software. You can learn more about this optimization of our software for VPS environments on our website at:
In order to provide optimized software and ensure continuous updates for your virtual server customers, effective September 1, 2008 the monthly pricing for all internal virtual server licenses will be increased by $2 per license.
This price increase is for virtual server licensing only and will not affect your dedicated server license pricing.
I have a Microsoft Virtual Server VPS and I was looking at cpanel licensing prices which is cheaper for VPS (~$15/month for VPS, compared to ~45/month for dedicated). However, it doens't say what kind of VPS can be used for this pricing. Does anyone know if it matters for cpanel pepole? Or as long as it is VPS, they are okay with it?
