Webhosting + Email Server

May 24, 2009

I am setting up a web server (2-3 websites, colo) but am wondering if setting up a mail server (IMAP/SMTP/Webmail for 4-5 mailboxes) alongside is a good practice?

Furthermore to my question, I only need SSL cert for email server and not for websites. Can this be done? Yes or no would be enough for now.

What Sort Of Security Measures Need To Placed For A Non Webhosting Server

Jan 20, 2008

Currently configuring my VPS, have been for a while now, and am relooking at the security I'll need on it. The VPS will be running something similar to a CMS/Forum site and won't be offering webhosting. Alot of the security measures around here are webhosting orientated. What security procedures does everyone suggest for my situation?

I've got APF, BFD and restricted root SSH access. Is there anything else?

Sending Email To Another Server When The Email Address Domain Is On This Server

Jun 24, 2008

I currently have a domain on Server 1 (Linux, Apache, Ubuntu, Matrix control panel).

This server does not have any spam filter, so I have moved all the email accounts to Server 2 (Linux, Apache, Fedora Core, Plesk) which does have a brilliant spam filter; and have changed the DNS record for mail.domain.com to the IP address for Server 2.

Emails are being successfully received on Server 2.

On Server 1, when an email is sent through SMTP to an address at that domain, it does not send it to Server 2, it gets delivered to the hosting account for the domain on Server 1. So what I am guessing is happening is that Server 1 detects the domain has an account on the server, and instead of looking up the DNS info for that domain, just assumes it is on Server 1.

What I need to do, is force Server 1 to send email for that domain to Server 2. Is this possible, and if so, how can it be achieved? If more info about the server is required for a solution please let me know and I'll provide what I can.

Email Issues When Email Is On Another Server

Jun 30, 2007

I have a client who has his own hosting account, and wants to leave his e-mail on his own hosting account, but his website on my hosting account.

On his own hosting he has created a sub domain called shop, and pointed its A record to the IP address of my server. On my server I've setup his domain name, and created the sub domain shop. That all works fine.

The problem I have is that the site under the shop domain needs to send an e-mail to sales@hisdomain.com. Now my server thinks the main domain is setup on my server, so it sends the e-mail to itself.

I'm justing wondering how I can get the server to point the mails back to his hosting?

A previous host I've used said they had to add the domain as a remote domain on the server, then they had to make some changes to /etc/localdomains because I was getting errors trying to send mails to the address.

Basic Webhosting

Mar 24, 2009

I am planning to host my personal website which will be a bunch of static pages for the time being with the possibility of moving to PHP/Pearl CMS later.

For this, I think that a basic hosting plan of about .5-1GB space and 5-10GB bandwidth would be well enough.

Can you please suggest me a host which would cost around 2-3$/month and has a moderately good service? I came across companies like Umbrahosting and HostPC which are cheap. Do you have anything to say about them?

Moreover, some hosts give combo offers of webspace+domain registration. Is it wise to register the domain through the host or to register it separately through godaddy etc?

Thawte SSL And Webhosting

Jan 4, 2009

I am currently hosted at by a webhotel that does not offer SSL security.

I have purchased a Thawte SSL123 certificate which I need to have installed on my webhost due to security while handling online payments.

What is required is the ability to setup subdomains. Some hosted exchange would be good as well, as to running a smallsized business.

which webhost I could move?

Would it be possible to use Godaddy.com and install the Thawte SSL certificate on their hosting?

How about the requirements for setting up a secure webserver by yourself? Prices for the hardware/software etc.?

Don't Use Namecheap Webhosting

Mar 17, 2008

I've just received my second suspension from them, for having 5 visitors on my website, which was abuse of their resources.

I had issues with them last month, they claimed I was using too much resources and had to upgrade to Business class. I've paid for two years there as it is.

Every time I would get these notices, I'd work with them and it was found that one comment bot was hitting my site repeatedly (one post several times in a row which really shouldn't cause any problems anyway) and would cause things to raise. In their email, their support said:

Quote:

Your account is unsuspended now. Please check and prevent future overloads.
Also we can block ip addresses of your referrals, when all connections is from one ip instead of suspending your account. Should we block 92.48.193.58 and similar?

When I said yes, I was sent this reply:

Quote:

Hello,

IP 92.48.193.58 blocked in our firewall. We'll act similar way, when your account will be leeched from one IP. Now this ticket is being closed.

So tonight, I redo a post, since their hotlink protection isn't stopping hits on the photo being linked to, which involved uploading an image and deleting the old, and shortly thereafter I get this:

+--------------------

All of them supposedly me. But at any rate, only 5 users at namecheap can apparently bring about a suspension. I have never in my life had such treatment by a host. Most of the site is a static site, where most people land. And this is for less than 50 people on a daily basis.

They may have a good reputation as a domain reseller (yes, they're now ICANN registrars, but they haven't switched over yet, they're still reselling for Enom) but they had better rethink their webhosting.

People I know who have WordPress pages at places like Dreamhost, Lunarpages, all the rest have way more traffic than I do and yet they don't have these problems. I'm just sick at they way I've been treated there.

Whatever you do, don't host with namecheap. I'm truly sorry I did. And if anyone wants to verify that I host with them, it's hauntedlights.com, obviously a really exploitable site. It's about haunted lighthouses.

WebHosting UK - Unbelivable

Dec 28, 2008

I have been with web hosting talk for just this month and in the past 8 days I have had down time at least 1 everyday for around 2-3 hours. I just contacted the VPS support to see why I am not even able to start the server using Virtuozzo Control Panel and this is what they said:

'We are facing a network issue at the moment. Our engineers are aware of this problem. Efforts are on to restore service at the earliest. We apologise for the inconvenience.'
And then I ask them the simple question, Why was I not informed about all this downtime and errors on the system - This is what he said to me:

'We have already posted this on our forum. You can have a look at http://www.webhosting.uk.com/forums/network-status/4724-network-issue.html'
So I say to him:

'So I get expected to look at your forums every time I have downtime or any problems with the network'

'I think this will be the last month of me paying for this server.'
Then he says: 'No every time but if there is any major issues, we always keep posted on our forums.'

Webhosting Provider Pointers

May 11, 2009

For the last few years I have run my own webserver from home for personal uses(I'm on an 'always on' dsl cable provider in the UK and using dyndns to get around being on dhcp). I have always resisted hosted services in the past as however, after a recent fatal hard drive crash am considering moving to hosted providors instead. As its for personal use (photo album, personal website etc) I dont want to spend too much (considering 3-5 a month), my requirements would be:

1. needs php
2. mysql
3. ssh
4. ftp
5. space - will be storing photos etc, so initially maybe 500mb

Imagine my surprise when i started seeing many 'unlimited' data transfer offers. I was impressed looking at JustHosts, but after digging around found they oversell, (don't they all) but have created their own review sites and list themselves at the top!

For personal usage would these 'unlimited' data transfers offers still be a good one? I just need something that will stay up, with reasonable access time for visitors.

I cant find any details on backups in general - is it a done thing where data backup of the web site / data is your own responsibility?

Webhosting Solely For Hotlinking

Feb 15, 2009

I am a graphic designer/photographer who creates designs for music artists, producers etc. on Myspace (I know, I know). This obviously involves lots of hotlinking, and that is why I am here.

I provide customers with hosting for their layouts so that they don't have to go out and search for one. I am currently hosting the images on a friends private server, but it's fairly slow and I want something more reliable. One layout usually has around 20 different images (background, headers, banners, etc) and I try to make sure it comes out to a little under 1MB, so I don't need to worry that much about disk space. I'd say bandwidth might be the only issue if anything.

I enjoy the work but it's mostly a side business and doesn't create much revenue, so I'm trying to go for around or under $10 a month. That said, I also want to make sure things are fast enough for the visitors and am willing to up the budget if required. I was going to go with 1and1 or Hostgator but heard alot about overselling.
