VPS Faster Than Shared

Mar 9, 2009

I know the assumption is that VPS is faster than shared, but my site currently runs on a shared server with a host that does not oversell, and it runs very fast for a WordPress and gallery site.

I'm certain the shared server is at least a dual CPU monster, and it rarely goes above 5% usage. So if I move this site to a VPS it seems logical to me that it might not be as fast.

Php 4 Faster Than 5

Apr 7, 2008

I've read that php 4 is faster than 5, is this true? I'm not sure which one I should use to host my invision powerboard. It's the only php/mysql site on the server.

More RAM = Faster Website

Jun 30, 2008

I just changed hosts, thinking it would be faster. My homepage uses 53MB of RAM. My old host lets me use ini_set to change this (currently have it at 128MB), my new host doesn't (48MB).

So, I've cut some of the functionality of the site to make it work on the new host. Should I upgrade the hosting plan to higher RAM? Given that the site already works reasonably well on the new host, what type of performance boosts could I expect to see by doubling the RAM?

Which One Be Propagated Faster

Jan 5, 2007

I am going to upgrade my servers and move all the accounts. Of course DNS IP's will change.

Last time I did this, I just created exactly same DNS on new server (eg. ns11.server.com and ns12.server.com) and updated the IP address of the DNS on the registrar. However it took more than 2 days for some domains to update the new DNS IP address. It was a nightmare.

So my options are:
1) Do the samething as before
2) Create new DNS addresses (eg. ns5.server.com and ns6.server.com) and update the DNS info of all the domains.

VPS Host On California Faster For Me

Jun 5, 2008

I live in Hawaii and half my sites serve Hawaii. Webhosts in Hawaii are really expensive. Does it matter where on the mainland US that I host my sites? Would they serve the fastest if I host them in California considering it's the closest to Hawaii?

BFD Updated Rules, Ban'em Faster, Better (V0.9)

Jun 22, 2008

These new "rules" make BFD ban faster, checks every minute. BFD only checked every 10 minutes and could miss attackers that show up at the right time. Now we keep 10 minutes of IPs, and ban using that list.

I feel that APF and BFD are still the best choices for protecting my server. Cpanel's new "cphulk" feature has a lot more to go to be as good, plus you have total control with BFD where you can add and change rules to suit your needs as they grow, or modify them for particular problems.

The changes I made are based on the latest version of BFD V0.9, you should have that version installed and WORKING ALREADY.

Remember, they are simply shell scripts that define the log file to keep track of and what keywords to trigger on. You can view them with any text reader.

WARNING: These work for me, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK, always make sure you add your current IP in /usr/local/bfd/ignore.hosts (and) /etc/apf/allow_hosts.rules so you don't accidentally ban yourself!

Inside the below tar.gz file are my modified "rules" files for exim, pure-ftpd, rh_imap, rh_pop3, sendmail and sshd. No changes to the BFD V0.9 main program are needed.

You should change the cron job to run BFD every minute, edit this file:
/etc/cron.d/bfd

Change the line in that file to this so it runs every minute:
*/1 * * * * root /usr/local/sbin/bfd -q

I checked the CPU load and since it's reading only a small part of the log file every minute, the CPU load isn't bad, it's done in about 8 seconds on my system. Expect a small rise in load average since it is doing work more often.

The "rules" files are contained in your server directory:
/usr/local/bfd/rules

The "rules" files should be REPLACED with the new ones, if you want to keep the old ones around then MOVE THEM OUT to another directory NOT INSIDE the "rules" directory, or else they will be run when BFD runs.

If you need apache, proftpd or other "rules" then you will have to modify them yourself, otherwise you should move these out of the "rules" DIRECTORY, they will not do much with BFD set to run every minute (unless you modify them yourself). I only modified the rules I needed for my server, feel free to post your own mods here.

OK enough, here's the file:

[url]

(it's also attached to this message, see below)

This file will only be around for a few months on this free upload site. Someone please put it in a good place/mirror and post a link, thanks.

Technical details:

This runs every minute but keeps a list of the last 10 minutes of bad IPs in a file in tmp, trimming the file every minute so only new IPs are saved.

You can see the list of IPs in files such as:
/usr/local/bfd/tmp/.exim
/usr/local/bfd/tmp/.sshd

The marker "----" (four dashes) is used to mark each minute and is ignored by BFD but used to trim the old IPs off the file.

If the number of "----" are more than 10, it trims the top of the file up to the marker every run. If the file doesn't exist it's created.

The exim filter "grep" part was modified slightly because the old one was producing bad data every once and a while. The others are all the default filters that come with V0.9.

(BFD people feel free to add this to the next version update, I consider it GPL)

Making Faster Downloads

Apr 17, 2008

I've ordered 1gbit/s port with one my dedicated servers. But I am still unhappy with the speed of download.

I have 2 mbit DSL connection at home and I can download files with 90 kb/s from the server. I also see the same speed on a 100mbit port server. But I can download files from RapidShare with 210 kb/s..

What do you recommend me to do make faster downloads from server-side?

Which Would Be Faster? Ram = 128 With DirectAdmin Or 256 With Cpanel

Jul 4, 2007

I have heard that Direct Admin is much faster then cpanel & require much less resources then cpanel... I was just wondering if I get vps with 128 ram with Direct admin on it, would it be better than vps with 256 ram with cpanel installed... I am running 3 websites with almost 10 to 20 users at a time (at max 50).... I like both cpanel & directadmin but was thinking if 128 ram with DirectAdmin can give more speed on 128 then I won't spend more money on 256 with cpanel... If anybody have an opinion then please put it here...

IIS & ISAPI Redirects...anything Faster Than The GUI

Apr 10, 2007

So I have been reduced, I am a firm *nix Apache user, to using IIS along with ISAPI for redirection at work. Now I can setup the redirection(s) just fine using the GUI, but I am a *nix man and doing this through the GUI is SLOW! That is when it has to be done on 3 servers at a time plus I can only access those servers through a Citrix environment.

And I need to be adding redirects many times a week. Is there any way to setup ISAPI redirects from a command line? Google has offered me nothing.

Top 10 Things To Ensure Faster/Friendlier Support

Mar 27, 2009

I've been working in this industry for 5 years now. Over the years, I've come to realize the little things that customers do that REALLY piss tech support off. This is a guide for customers for 10 things NOT do when contacting their host's technical support team.

This is a repost of what I already posted before the big catastrophe.

Please forgive the brutal honesty. It's for your own good.

1. One ticket per issue.
Emailing your issue to Support, Sales, Billing, Abuse, the owner, each individual tech, and the mayor of your town is not going to get your ticket answered any quicker. Additionally, opening 2, 3, 4, or 10 tickets isn't going to get things done any faster. Seriously - all it will do is irritate the support guy

2. Contact the proper department
If your account is suspended due to non-payment, or your account hasn't yet been setup, or you want to upgrade your account - please don't bother contacting support hoping it'll get done faster. All it will do is slow down their response time to customers that have actual support issues. Billing issues goto Billing. Sales issues goto Sales. Abuse issues goto abuse. Get the picture?

3. Contact support via ONE medium
If you put in a support ticket, don't get on live chat and call too. Trust me - you'll get the same answer on live chat and the phone as you will in the ticket . Same goes for requesting "updates" on your ticket - if your ticket is in queue, wait patiently for a response. If you don't get a timely response, contact the management to complain.

4. Everyone thinks their ticket is CRITICAL
Tech support reps realize that you think your issue is CRITICAL and must be dealt with IMMEDIATELY. But, guess what, so does everyone else that submitted their ticket before you. Your CRITICAL ticket will be answered in the order received after everyone else's CRITICAL ticket has been answered.

5. Do not try to "bump" your ticket
Making continuous replies to your ticket in an event to get a faster response won't work. In fact, in most common helpdesk applications, each reply made rotates the ticket to the bottom of the queue. So really, by bumping your ticket, you're just making yourself wait longer. Not getting service fast enough? Contact the manager of the company!

6. Include all relevant information, but only relevant information
Seriously - we don't care to hear your life story. Submit your ticket with your client ID, domain name, username, password, error messages, steps to reproduce, and other information directly pertinent to your issue. If your website is inaccessible, check http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ and include your local IP address (from www.whatismyip.com) and a traceroute. That will save you a reply.

7. Just because YOU can't see the website does NOT mean the server is down
So please - don't come shouting at us claiming we're fraudsters and have horrible uptime and demand a credit. Most of the time you will find there is either a firewall issue or a routing issue - or scheduled maintenance. Check http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ and your host's forums before screaming at them.

8. Avoid live chat & phone support
Unless you have a quick question, live chat and phone support are probably not going to be good avenues. Chances are, if your issue requires someone to login to the server to investigate, you're just going to be escalated to a support ticket. Instead of whining about how long the support ticket will take to get answered - just get it in queue. Figure if you spend 5-10 minutes on the phone only for them to tell you that you need to submit a ticket - that's 5-10 minutes that your ticket could have been looked into. Think about it. If you do call or chat - be brief - and keep in mind we have other customers to help.

9. We don't make the rules
If you don't like a company's policies or procedures, don't complain to your support tech about it. They don't make the rules, they just follow them. If you want a change, contact the management of the company.

10. Do NOT disrespect or mistreat support people
If you curse at us, disrespect us, or mistreat us in any way - you can almost be guaranteed that we won't be going out of our way to help you beyond the minimum. By polite, cordial, and courteous to your support tech and it will get you a LOT farther. We don't get paid enough to deal with people's abuse.

11 (Free bonus ). The amount of money you pay does not matter to us
Seriously - the fact that you pay us $9.95/month does not matter to us. We're going to provide you with the same support that we provide somebody that's paying $3.95/month or $99.95/month. Don't expect better treatment based on the amount of money you pay.

Downloading Files From My Site/server Faster

Dec 22, 2008

Ive been recieving some complaints/feedback that the download speed on my site is too slow.

I test it myself and at night i download at about 60k/s, late at night, mornings its around 300kb/s

Im guessing my site is basically getting high traffic and load issues in the evenings.

(average daily bandwidth is around 200-300gb)

So basically i need to rectify this pronto.

What are the possible solutions?

i thought if i bought a second cheaper server that could step in when the load gets too much for my primary server this could help out the speeds.

Am i correct, are there cheaper ways of speeding things up?

VPS And Php.in Vs Shared

Mar 7, 2009

I'd like to install ACP because I have a account on the VPS with which I'd like to try it. The problem is that I already have Zend Optimizer installed (by default) and I've read that the two do not co-exist well together.

1) Is there a way to configure PHP such that ACP is only installed for this single cpanel account? or is the process of uninstalling Zend and then installing ACP a global thing that will have to affect all accounts?

2) Also, if I do go ahead and uninstall Zend, and then install ACP, but have a problem, is there a good way to reverse what I've done if there's a problem?

Clearly I'd backup php.ini, but other than restoring the VPS, is there an easier way to "go back to a restore point" (for lack of a better phrase)?

Shared To VPS ..

Jun 26, 2008

I've been on shared hosting for 2 years and I'm experienced in Cpanel/WHM (mails,ftp,database..etc).

My question is that if I sign up for a FULLY Managed VPS hosting , will it be very easy to me getting up everything to work just like It used to be on my shared hosting ?
I'm not looking to have full root access and start modifying the system according to my preferences. I just need everything to be set up smoothly.

The purpose of my move to VPS is because I'm in need to start a social networking website which will be addressing a quite large number of traffic.

I just need to upload the script files,create the database,and setting up some mail accounts.

So with my previous experience in Cpanel,can I go ahead and start my vps hosting easily ? or there are tricks I need to be aware of ?

And finally,please recommend me the best between those hosts :
eurovps , vpslink or wiredtree.

Shared IP And Other IPs

May 10, 2007

When I sign up for a hosting server, I was given 6 IP. One shared IP and a bunch of other IP. Usually, the other IP are series of numbers after the shared IP. If the shared IP is 55.55.55.51, then the other IPs are 55.55.55.52, 55.55.55.53, etc.

curiously I wrote this into test.php

<?
echo file_get_contents[url];
?>

Sure enough, the IP that shows up is the IP of my website.

The thing is the IP that hows up is always the shared IP.

For example, if one of the other IP is
55.55.55.52

and I type 55.55.55.52/test.php in webbrowser, IP chicken will still say that my IP is 55.55.55.51

So, what are the other IPs are for?

VPS, Professional Shared Or ...?

Nov 26, 2008

I have a Joomla website where I embed videos from Youtube and others video sharing sites hosted on a shared server. During the last month I got my account suspended because of high CPU usage.
That's a bit strange to me because the videos aren't hoted on the website. I have also uninstall some components (example JoomlaWatch that provide realtime stats) and things seems to go better untill yesterday when I got another notice from the server admin.

They have offered me an unmanaged VPS for 8/month ($12) or a managed one for around ã30/month ($45). These are the features of the unmanaged one:

10GB Disk Space
200GB Bandwidth
256MB Dedicated RAM
512MB Burst RAM
2 IP Addresses Provided
CENTOS 5
LXAdmin Included Free

I'm looking for a new hosting as $45 are too much for my pockets and I'm not able to manage a server. The server must be managed...not sure if a "professional shared" or a VPS. These are my needs:

- Space: 512MB/1GB is enough
- Bandwidth: at least 70GB
- MySQL database (around 25 MB)
- Email
Some details about the site:
- around 1500 UV per day (this can go up to 5000 per day)
- bandwidth around 1.5/2GB per day
- users connected at the same time around 30 (max 100/150)
As stated above my current problem is about CPU and not users. In fact I got the high usage with only 20 users connected at the same time.

Anybody knows a good hosting where my site could work?

VPS As A Step Up From Shared

Aug 15, 2007

First I want to say hello and thanks for the great advice I've gotten on this forum. You guys have saved me a ton of time and heartache in regards to hosting accounts.

I was told by my hosting company that a VPS account isn't designed to be an step up from a shared account. I always viewed a VPS account as the intermediary between shared and dedicated. The hosting company basically told me that a VPS server is designed as a testing environment and you can run out of resources pretty quickly in a production environment.

Is that true? Or are they telling stories?

Shared SSL Certificates?

Jan 27, 2005

I do web hosting (reseller); how much, in USD per year, do you think is a "reasonable" fee to charge clients for a shared SSL connection ?

The SSL is going to cost me $$ per year and I may have some use for it, but if clients want a shared SSL, instead of buying their own, I need to apportion the costs I incur somehow, and (maybe) make some small profit. I see the shared SSL as more of a service, but clients should pay _some_ $$ if they want to use one.

Any ideas on how much I should charge, please ?

Thanks,

Peter

W/c Package Should I Take WHB VPS Or HG Shared

Jan 23, 2009

i would just like to have your good opinion on something....
Im currently at a loss to what kind of hosting package to choose.

WebHostingBuzz's VPS BRONZE Web Hosting
or

HostGator's ALUMINUM Reseller Hosting Package
i have a bunch of sites and some of them are hosted at WebHostingBuzz. One of them just got suspended. Heres what the email said....
*************************************

we have found your account to consume more than its fair share
of server CPU/Processor, Memory and Disk Bandwidth resources.

This results in sub-par server performance and is a violation of our Acceptable Usage Policy.

Your account appears to be resource intensive by nature and 9 times out of 10, this is down to the software and/or scripts used.
*******************************

(note that the said account only has a PHPBB forum with about 20-30 active members)
They suggested that i move up to a VPS.

So that's why im choosing between the two packages. One is their VPS and the other is a shared hosting.

IIS On Shared Package

Jun 15, 2009

I currently have a shared Windows hosting package, and my developer has recently requested access to IIS. However, according to the FAQ's of my hosting provider (1&1) this is only possible with a dedicated server - via Remote Desktop.

Is there a basic reason for IIS to be inaccessible on a shared package or is this a limitation of this particular hosting company?
