GoDaddy Virtual Dedicated: Is The Assisted Service Plan Worth It

Jun 9, 2009

I am a PHP/MySQL web developer and I want to take on the challenge of administering my own server.

I have Plesk installed on the server, and I imagine I will have command line access to the dedicated server.

What unknown challenges lie ahead for me? What are things to monitor to keep the site running efficiently? What should I be using to connect to the server? What tools are available to help me be more efficient?

Virtual Server Setup

Oct 26, 2009

I've been doing some research and thought why not split the server into a bunch of virtual servers so I can offer both windows and linux hosting.

What is the best option for doing this?

I've come across VMware Server but also noticed centOS has "Virtualization provided by the Xen hypervisor with Virtual Machine Manager"

Assuming I go with splitting the server up, do I create a virtual centOS server and install cPanel on that one or on the main install?

Totally new to virtualization.

How To Setup A VPS (Virtual Private Server)

Sep 29, 2008

I have a dedicated server with iWeb, but due to revenues being cut short, I'm in search for a new host. Possibly a VPS host that isn't expensive or a shared host.

Anyways.. I'm looking for a good host (nothing like the oversellers at Dreamhost) that would work for me.

I'd be hosting some domains-- about 10. Three are majorly active, 1 is moderately active, and the others are hardly active.

I've tried Dreamhost's shared hosting (along with a PS from them) and that night (my first night with them), their servers went down. HostRefugee, tried them, the server couldn't handle the load and was quite slow. (may be due to coding)

So yeah, suggestions? I know how to setup a VPS if needed.

VPN (Virtual Private Network) Server Setup

Jul 9, 2008

I'm trying to setup a VPN server on windows 2003 standard. It suppose to work like this if configuration is correct: the server will have 20 static public IP addresses, each of my workstations will use one of the 20 IPs to connect to the server, then connect to the internet with the same IP it connects to the server. So if I do a IP lookup, each workstation will show a different public IP but the server will always assign the same IP to the same workstation.

Now all my workstations can connect to the server with any of the IPs I have, and they can surf the internet with no problems at all. However, if I do a IP lookup, every workstation shows the same pubilc IP which is totally not what I wanted. I have searched google and not much useful infor come up. Can any of the experts here help me out?

Virtual Dedicated Server

Apr 15, 2009

What is the difference between virtual dedicated server and a dedicated server?

I know that a dedicated server means you have the physical computer as your server whileas virtual dedicated server means that they separate the physical computer into various parts and you have control over one of those separated parts.

But my question is mainly on the functionality of a virtual dedicated server and a dedicated server.

What can you do on a dedicated server that you can't do on a virtual dedicated server?

Dedicated Or (VPS) Virtual Private Server?

Apr 6, 2009

At the moment I run a small membership site. The site mainly consists of creating, downloading a lot of files using fwrite (Based on what the user enters).

Last months stats were just under 30GB of data transferred.

I'm currently with HostGator Business Plan ($12.99/month).

I run a LOT of database connections per minute. I am looking to increase the size of my membership site at which point it will be likely that I am running at least 1 DB connection per second.

Can anyone recommend me a decent priced VPS/Dedicated server for my needs?

The usage will probably be around 50GB/month.

HostGator have shutdown my site a couple times last month due to excessive number of running processes (Limited to 25) so I have decided to leave them.

Who Is The BEST Virtual Dedicated Server Host

May 11, 2008

what hosts are considered the best for virtual dedicated servers.

I know about the big names like GoDaddy and Yahoo, but who really has the best service and (importantly) the best price/value?

Heres what I need power-wise: Something that offers 2GB+ of RAM to me, 20GB+ Hard Drive space, and something thats running on Windows. I intend to run 3 e-commerce sites off this, so if you think I need more power please recommend it.

Running Virtual Dedicated Server On WIN XP

Feb 15, 2008

In order to test a web site's performance in conditions close to the planned ones, I would like to run a Virtual Dedicated Server on my desktop Win XP Pro PC (AMD Athlon 3500+, 2Gb RAM).

The most basic approximate parameters for the VDS can be as follows:
- CPU: 400MHz
- RAM: 256 Mb

Guest OS - Linux (e.g. CentOS)

Can someone here recommend me a piece of software (both free and paid) allowing to run a guest system and set the abovementioned limits?

Splitting Dedicated To Virtual Private Server

Jul 22, 2008

Is it a good idea to "Split" my dedicated into a couple of different VPS's?

1. My sites and hosting "Company" site.

2. Customers sites.

Would this be the best? I was thinking of putting the companies site on a separate VPS so that a malicious user can't use php to exploit the billing system. (I know it would be ideal to have 2 dedicated servers, 1 for customers, 1 for company, but that just isn't possible right now).

Nameservers In VPS - Domain In Godaddy - Backup - How To Setup?

Aug 2, 2009

I just got a VPS plan for the first time where I want to host several new websites. In the past I've used individual accounts to host a couple of other websites and haven't paid much attention to nameserver setup, just configured at my registrar whatever I was given from the hosting service.

So, I got a brand new domain to act as the host of the rest of the domains I'm setting up:

In the VPS I have setup this one as the default domain for nameservers:

Question 1:
- Can I setup and as the nameserververs for ? i.e. nameserver is used for the same domain in which it is named. Even if this is possible, is it a good idea or would it be better to host it somewhere else? When I try to define those as the nameservers in Godaddy I get the error message Nameserver not registered. What am I missing?

Other DNS questions
Question 2:
- If I host my nameservers in my VPS, I will need a separate IP for each one (ns1, ns2...and so on). Can I still use those IP's to actually host websites, or do I need additional IP's to host the actual sites? Any value in keeping each IP dedicated to a nameserver?

For example:
IP#1 = used for ns1
IP#2 = used for ns2
IP#1 = used for website 1
IP#2 = used for website 2

Question 3:
- Are DNS backup services valuable if I host my own nameservers? Any suggestions on good quality providers? Price not an issue.

Question 4:
- If I used DNS backup services for will that apply to and which I used for my VPS? and therefore will be applicable to other domains I host? Does this make sense? Or would I need a separate backup for each domain I host? Can I use one backup for multiple domains?

Question 5:
- What are the drawbacks of hosting multiple sites under the same IP? I control all sites under these IPs

Question 6:
- Can somebody recommend a good resource to learn how IP, DNS, nameservers, etc work? Any book, paid website, video... anything ? While there's a ton of info on the web, all is scattered and none seems to be too detailed enough for somebody starting to learn about this.

Dedicated Server Setup

Jun 8, 2009

So when you setup a new server, what should I do. I will only be running 1 site for now (vbulletin forum site), should I just install Apache, MySQL, Php, setup the DNS, etc.

Or Should I just Install Plesk, and let that do it.

Most Likely will just be running a 2.53Ghz Core2Duo, 4GB 250GB. I have setup a webserver before just basically though but think I could manage. I think that Plesk would make it easier but would also eat up resources, on the other hand though not having it would use less resources but require more configuration.

Dedicated Server - How To Setup CRON

I'm trying to help out a friend with a dedicated server setup however we both don't know too much about it. We've setup apache, perl, sql all the standard stuff but cannot for the life of us setup a CRON job for a particular script.

The dedicated server control panel is: WHM Accelerated.

Our current websites have been setup on the server under the same user account (master).

There doesn't seem to be the usual "CPANEL" options which you usually get with shared hosting however.

Most Secure Dedicated Web Server Setup

Mar 18, 2008

I am seeking a little input from others who use multi-CPU machines with large memory as web servers and mysql servers.

I will be more than happy to give additional information I might have overlooked if you need it. Just ask.

We are starting to run more and more dedicated hosts running joomla applications. I've been trying to find the very best settings for both performance and security that I can for the servers to function well specifically with their joomla applications.

Serves are not used for *anything* else at all.

The servers are strictly used to serve up web pages. No need for anything other than what apache/php, joomla requires and a few other things such as ffmpeg, etc.

I would like to remove all tools which aren't needed for such a server, leaving a bare minimum server which is less susceptible to hacking.

I've never messed with the root account so wonder if I can simply not allow any access as root other than terminal, perhaps not even su by giving another account full root access and of course, while allowing the system to continue to function properly with the many things which must run as root.

I would like to do this on all of my public machines which are of course behind firewalls. I also have load balancers and cache devices in front of the web servers but at this time, they are not activated so aren't in the realm of this question.

Development is done in a separate environment and the data is pushed to the web server via private network to the web servers. This means no need for shared tools, FTP, or anything else which users would need in a shared environment.

The servers are 8-way IBM, running linux and apache, php/APC.
Servers have 32GB of memory and I can install up to 64GB.

Databases are run on separate machines which are also dedicated only to running mysql databases. Same machines as above.

Machines all run multiple network cards bonded as a single IP.

So, my questions are;

How can I best utilize my hardware to take advantage of their memory capacities.

For example, on the web servers, I'd like to find the best settings for httpd.conf which takes advantage of the machines resources.

On MySQL servers, I'd like to do the same as the above, taking the best advantage of the hardware/memory.

For web serving and for joomla, I seek the very best security settings I can possibly get. I say best because since they aren't used by users, there is no need to have a lot of tools and access to these machines so it should not be a problem to tighten these machines up a great deal.

Any input from those who have such experiences would be very welcome as I've been finding no one place for help on this.

Dedicated Server Vs Virtual Dedicated Server ..

Sep 7, 2008

I am currently using a shared hosting but due to increasing traffic and server load my existing host is not able to provide reliable services and I am planning to upgrade my hosting service.

While I was searching for Dedicated Servers, I learnt about Virtual Dedicated Servers but I am not very sure about their reliability? Are Virtual Dedicated Servers useful? My website current serves over 2500-3000 visitors a day resulting in 30,000 pageviews and I am expecting the traffic to grow by atleast 2 folds in the next few months as I start some PPC campaigns and Email Marketing for my website. Can a Virtual Dedicated Server cater such needs assuming my website to be more of less dynamic website written in php?
