We've tried before several times RAM based hosting (where you have all files on RAM disk). Our systems were crashing, but my guess is that we were putting about 100,000 or so files on it and since it was formatted with ext3 (everywhere else we are using XFS) - this was a reason for crashing.
Since we have a lot of bandwdith in our data center, we are thinking about becoming a mirror for CentOS, gOS and some other distributions. I am thinking again about using RAM disk based hosting (you use 1 Gb/s port 100% no problem with it even on CoreDuo level of CPU).
Anybody has any experince, good or bad of running RAM based hosting? I am talking about dedicated, not VPS environment.
I've been investigating and testing Xen for a few months in order to add Xen VPS to the hosting services I have available. With the recent news re: VMware Server, and my experience with VMware, I've started to look, and easily prefer, using this product over Xen. Has anyone else started to look at it as a possible alternative for hosting purposes?
Well I think that I have finally narrowed down my choices to three different possible hosts (leaving room for more suggestions of course)
But I was wondering based on speed - which host would you suggest. I would like to have mp3s load up and start playing as fast as possible.
The choices I was considering were:
knownhost downtownhost hostgator
As for whether to go with a shared or a reseller package, I am still unsure. But it seems that Hostgator offers a huge shared package - I am hoping to keep the cost of all this down to $7 - $10 a month.
Can anyone recommend shared hosting company where servers are located at Brazil ? If should be reliable, economical and Ii would be good if I can host multiple domains. Also if the hosting company has its site in English or their staff can communicate in English?
I have a task of converting a current Win Server based apache server from multiple IP based virtual hosts to a full name based virtual hosting.I'm famiilar with the steps but I was wondering if there are any gotchas in Windows that I should be aware of. It seems that now matter what I change in the new config it doesn't work or work as expected.
my friend and i are working on some web-based-commerce ideas and at current we're at godaddy.com. i can only imagine the vitriol they've rightfully earned here, as we decided to be done with them when the $30 SSL license they told us we could get one night quickly became $78 because there was a new "turboSSL server" package we needed, nevermind the guy the first time said with our hosting options we only needed to go through them for the SSL license, so basically, either the first guy lied to us or the second guy tried to hustle us, either way, i dont like companies whose sales model is revealed like the plot in a horror movie, so we're looking to go elsewhere.
basically we're looking for a virtual private server setup, although actually another question i'd love to ask someone is if joomla is better served on unix/linux or windows, with a few dozen accounts needed, and by accounts i mean domains and whatnot, as right now it's basically the blanket idea that you grab the names you need, or might go to if you change your mind on company names...
so basically, with all the people here talking about bad experiences with places, are there any good experience type places where someone can get competent tech support, no hustling in sales pitches, and quality service at a nice solid price?
again, sorry to show up and start asking for things, but i'm not necessarily well versed in these arts yet... rest assured once i have some information i shall contribute to the community and help others who are in my position now
have a number of vps servers with USA based VPS hosts, very happy with these companies but as they are USA based load time could be improved with AU based server. Also search engine considerations as well fictate we need to offer AU based hsoting. So now looking to setup future accounts a little closer to home with australian based vps hosting
Does anyone know of a really good, fast, reliable affordable vps host offering cpanel/whm vps hosting in a top notch australian data centre.
hoping to pay arounf $100 per month, with room to grow when we have more clients on the server...
This is the average package we are on with us based hosts so looking for something as close as possible to this...
$89 Monthly $0 Setup 2 GB Burst RAM 512 MB Guaranteed RAM 20 GB Storage 500 GB Monthly Transfer 4 IP Addresses Unlimited Domains Unlimited User Accounts Cpanel/WHM
Minimum Server Specs Dual Xeon 3 GHz or Better 8 GB Registered ECC RAM U320 SCSI HD in Hardware RAID 10 Zero Downtime During Drive Failure Hot-Swap Drives and Fans Replaceable on the Fly Dual Gigabit Network Interfaces
If anyone can point me in the direction of some reputable companies id be very happy!
Yes i have searched the forum but cant really find mention of good australian based vps hosts.
I'm looking for a cheap VPS with the following requirements:
- Based in the EU - Unlimited monthly bandwidth - Price under 50 EUR / month, the cheaper the better - At least 20GB space, at least 10 MBit, other specs do not matter - Linux distro or FreeBSD, SSH access - Good reliability, doesn't mean i want a 99% uptime guarantee, but something that doesn't have too many problems Preferred locations are near Austria, but anywhere in the EU is good. Also it is a plus if they have upgrade options to better packages if i need it at a later time.
I liked Kimsufi, however I cannot rent from my country even though I can pay by credit card or paypal. I am based in Slovenia and i can pay by Visa debit or Paypal (Visa preferred).
Just a general question here but does it put you off signing up with a host if their HQ's are not based in the US or UK?
For example, would you always choose a host based in the US or UK over a host based in India, China or the Phillippines (i.e. English not being their first language as per communication with techs/sales staff)?
i suppose this type of post is common in this forum so i hate to do it but i do need come advice.
I hava a shared host but i need to move to a dedicated host. I'm having real problems finding a host that i think i can trust.....i was considering going with 123 reg....the price is about right....£40 monthly and they're in the uk so support should be easier............then i read loads of bad things about them an decided against it.
I need a dedicated host ( linux) for about £40 a month based in the uk....can anyone reccomend anyone reliable with good support....cpanel would also be good......and do they all have setup fees like 123 reg?
As you might know if you read my other thread I'm often looking for VPS servers (at the moment Linux only), based around the world.
This weeks challenge for me is a china/hong kong based VPS, nothing too fancy, its only going to be used for small websites and as a proxy service for when we run ranking reports for our SEO clients.
Requirements - English support if possible, although we do have some Chinese speakers in house. - 128mb ram, 2gb disk space, 20gb transfer/mo - CentOS 5 preferred, but any system with a working Yum or similar will do.
Budget up to €30 a month, but could go higher if i had to.
Payment -for various reasons we cannot use paypal at the moment, so even if its just paypal credit card processing they won't let us use it. This is something we are looking to solve but its not my dept so i'm stuck with it.
- We can pay by Visa Credit or Visa Debit cards, and if we really had to, bank transfer, but I'm told transfers to china are sometimes very tricky to get right.
I have had a look through the VPS offers forum but most of the china-related posts are from 2006 or so and so aren't relevant anymore.
