My Midpulse Experience - Accounts Are Suspended Before Due Date
Sep 23, 2008
I have been with Midpulse for about a month, while hosting has been fine, but they really have serious issues with Billing.
I had selected Paypal Subscription when I signed up on 22-Aug and the subscription is paypable today 23-Sep, yet Midpulse Suspended my account yesterday itself for Non-payment Now, I'm confused whether I should cancel Paypal subscription or not.
Plus their HTTPS Billing area does not even open... so how the hell are customers supposed to Login to Billing area...
my account with them just got suspended a few days ago. The reason was they think I was sending spam emails and make their server unstable. They sent me the evident email which was an email I sent to group about 20 people from a non profit organization for a meeting request and discussion of projects. I answer to them and asked for restoration of my email receiving account at least so I can download all the important business email that are still on the server (I'm using IMAP). They never answer both the Sales and the Support. The whole site is suspended. Those Canaca IT guys don't seem to know the differences between a spam email and a legitimate one. They also claimed that they host 200 accounts per server and that is I'm sending more than 100 email it would jam up their server. It seem by that they don't know how to configure their Linux server properly either. I asked around while looking for a replacement hosting service. Many can easily do 500 emails/hour.
By experiences, I also found that their server was performance at all and experiences lots of downtime within one year of hosting with them.
So I strongly recommand to everyone NOT to host with Canaca. If you're already with them start looking for an alternative berfore they suspend your account. You can't afford your customer to see your website showing 'Account suspended' and cannot reach you by email either.

Have you noticed any thing like that, I saw atleast 5 suspended websites in last month.
there are about 5 accounts that show up in suspended list, but they are really not suspended and the dns still points to my server, sites are live. I tried unsuspending. Nothing. I suspended, unsuspended, nothing. I forced a cpanel upgrade, nothing.
Does anyone have an experience with this host? In my search I found several favorable comments. I've been collecting different hosts names to consider from those of you kind enough to post them on your signatures. I'm with A Small Orange and am looking for a backup host, or will change the DNS to the backup if they are better.
Others I am considering are Aspire and Known Host. I'll need a shared plan. My site is anywhere from 350 to 450MB's. I try to get twice the space I need because I can have a spike here and there since clients are always downloading my voice files for their projects.

I have a few guys that keep spiking to about 30%+ cpu. This is fine if stops after 2 minutes from my tos but it keeps lasting for 30 minutes+ so I manually suspend them for about 10 minutes etc. are there any whmcs programs or addon's or any script in general that will suspend a user for 5 minutes if a large amount of cpu is being used?
An alliance of software makers and network-hardware vendors announced on Tuesday that they had banded together to fix a fundamental flaw in the design of the internet's address system.
The vulnerability in the domain name system (DNS) - the distributed database that matches a host and domain name with the numerical address of a computer server - could give an attacker the ability to replace the addresses of popular websites with that of a malicious server, said Dan Kaminsky, director of penetration testing for security firm IOActive. Kaminsky found the flaw when he was doing non-security research on the domain name system (DNS) more than six months ago.
"It is a fundamental issue affecting the design," Kaminsky said. "Because the system is behaving exactly like it is supposed to behave, the same bug will show up in vendor after vendor after vendor. This one bug affected not just Microsoft ... not just Cisco, but everyone."
On Tuesday, a number of software and network-hardware vendors released patches for their products. On its regularly scheduled patch day, Microsoft released updates for Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 to mitigate the issue, which the company ranked an important vulnerability, its second highest grade of severity. Internet Software Consortium, the group responsible for the development of the popular Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) server, also released a patch, confirming that its software contained the vulnerability. Both Cisco and Juniper also acknowledged flawed systems.
Vendors have also provided the fix to certain large clients. Yahoo will be upgrading its name servers from BIND 8 to the latest version of BIND 9, the Internet Software Consortium stated during the conference call. Internet service provider Comcast has already patched its servers for the issue, according to internet infrastructure firm Nominum. Finally, the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) Coordination Center has contacted some other nation's response groups to inform them of the problem.
For the most part, however, internet service providers and companies each received the fix on Tuesday, said Sandy Wilbourn, vice president of engineering at Nominum. The goal: To have every major service provider and company apply their software patches in 30 days.
For that reason, don't expect immediate action, Wilbourn said.
"For key customers on our network, we have made a special effort to get them an early release to help solve this problem, and a number of them have finished deployment," he said. "But the nature of this patch is that we wanted to get the vendor side covered and then have deployment over the next 30 days. Anyone that is not patched by today or tomorrow is not doing anything wrong."
The domain-name system (DNS) has been a popular way to attack the internet in the past - it's an ill-kept secret that the DNS system is insecure. The way that many software applications, such as browsers, handle DNS requests has opened up users to attack. Microsoft has fixed a few vulnerabilities in the way Windows handles domain names - issues that could have lead to easier eavesdropping or simpler phishing attacks.
We have a server located in USA. We have hosted an application for online booking of travel tickets. The customer wanted to change the system date to IST instead of EDT which we did. Now, if we try to change the system date to a future date in order to test our application, the date automatically resets to the current date. This happens only if we have the timezone as IST. If we change the system date to EDT, then after changing the system date, it does not reset automatically. It changes only if we modify it manually. However, if we change the timezone to IST, then the system date resets automatically back to the current date. We have stopped the W32 Time service and also blocked the port 123. We have also disabled the automatic synchronization with the internet time server.
I have a server with DedicatedBox.net. My billing cycle is 26th every month, but they always disconnect my server if I don't make payment before 22th or 23th. I complained to them by email, their helpdesk and WHT PM. They did response to me, but can't have the issue resolved.
In this month, I forgot to pay in advance. They disconnected my server on 23th as always. I sent a ticket #499717 and nobody responses to me. Whether they disappear or just ignore me, it's a warning to me, so I decided to leave them. Luckily I have a backup for all my data.
i have nameservers setup on my server using (for example) ns1.domain.net and ns2.domain.net with ips 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168, respectively.

had a nice run with them for almost 3 years probably never had a problem until now; cancelled account today.
they suspended my domain (it was a free domain that came with the account) and service for hosting "pornography."
the abuse email says that i am violating
You agree and warrant that Your Data shall not violate any Laws concerning obscenity and shall not contain or link to any pornography, or depictions of bestiality, rape, sexual assault, violence, torture or disfigurement, or other content deemed objectionable by 1&1, in its sole discretion.
the link they sent me that was in violation was [mydomain]/index.php#HARDCORE_XXX_SEX_39948382_JPG.JPG
yes, a nonexistant anchor on a blank page. not an actual file. in addition to that; abuse/billing/etc is taking more or less a week to reply to my emails.
I am searching for a web hosting provider that offers up to date php and libcurl versions (or up to date perl plus libcurl). Any provider that you could recommend? Many thanks for some feedback!
My current provider (Yahoo Small Business ) offers the following php & libcurl combination: php 4.3.11 libcurl/7.12.0 OpenSSL/0.9.6g zlib/1.1.3.
I posted that to a libcurl mailing list, and the answer was the following:
> 1. That's using the PHP/CURL binding (which could explain
> something), and a version of it (the entire PHP version)
> that's over 4 years old
> 2. That's a libcurl version which is 29 releases old. Soon
> celebrating 5 years! (and the OpenSSL version is similarly
5 years! So what I'd need is a provider offering php 5 and the latest libcurl, or (even better) a provider that offers perl in combination with an up to date libcurl version (Yahoo comes with perl, but libcurl not included).
