I need to have a private proxy which I want to share with 2 of my friends? What kind of hosting do I need? Also anybody who have experience with setting up private proxies? I only know of setting up web based proxy.
Is there a hosting provider that can host my private proxy (for myself only) with cgi hosting (for cgi proxy - I'd like to stay away from php based proxies) and provide multiple ips? Preferably different class C ips?
I want to host SQUID proxy on it too.
Price, of course, as low as possible, but I understand with these specific requests that low price is really last on my list.
I'm wondering what kind of prices you would be looking at for some private data center space, maybe in the InfoMart or one of Internaps data centers - somewhere in Texas though, preferably Dallas. Is there any kind of rough monthly price I should expect? Maybe a standard per sq ft charge?
Also, if you rent a private "suite" does that include office space, or would that still be needed separately? How much would it be to get a small (100 to 500 sq ft) office in the infomart?
Cabinet Suite (Internap only it seems), and private suites would be considered. Possibly a cage or private rack, but not preferred.
Iím summarizing below what we need.VPS with dedicated USA ip.
Private & secured proxy installed. Need to do SSH SOCKS tunnelling (Used for online communication/surfing by our helpdesk staff) Ability to host 2 or 3 low traffic websites. (LAMP environment) Our Budget: $10 to $15 per month. Paid thru Moneybookers.com on monthly basis.
Do u think any reliable VPS provider can offer the above? What disk space, bandwidth, control-panels and other features we should expect in the above budget?
I'd like to set up my server as a proxy for my own private use, where in my home PC's browser I can tell it the server's IP, port, and the password that I set, and it will function like a normal proxy. How can I do that? What software do I need and so on.
I'd like to make a private proxy server on a Linux VPS. That way, I can use the VPS's IP address when surfing (I would configure it as a proxy in my local browser). What software would I need for that, and how do I allow only access *from* my local computer's IP address. And can this also be done for non-HTTP traffic?
I am currently with the planet and am happy with them, however as part of a new venture I need to gather a list of hosts as well as the planet that will be able to cater to the ventures needs and go to tender with the requirements.
ThePlanet offer something called a virtual rack. This is cheaper than renting a dedicated rack, allows for Gb networking but doesnt not allow for a SAN. Do other providers offer something similar? The cost of putting a machine on the virtual rack is not that much more expensive than just renting the machine. I guess there isn't too much to these set-ups to be fair.
If not, then we are looking for dedicated racks, with the ability to host a SAN at some point, but starting off with say 3 servers (2 web servers, 1 storage server with raid5 6Tb of hdd). These servers will be dealing with network cameras although I don't think that many will be streaming at once but the network capacity does need to be there.
Who's door should I be knocking on to find out some prices?
One final thing, should I bother looking for co-lo providers as well? We are in the Uk but not precious about our host being in the same country at all (it would be nice but uk prices are ££). Really, all we would be able to do with co-lo is buy the hardware outright to save price as we are not interested in looking after the hardware.
I'm not quite sure how much of Ram I need for my vps, But I'm going to get 1GB Vps from wiredtree.com
Anyone can tell me what kind of website I would be able to run on such an VPS? If it's just wordpress driven website...
Maybe anyone can share how much traffic your site have and how much ram it's using?
At the moment I have website with about 40k uniques/day and ~100k pageloads per day hosted on shared hosting but they have gave me 3days to find another hosting because they say I use to much of their traffic...
I'm just posting a little topic here to see what kind of demand numbers and opinions I might get for the Hybrid VPS industry. Hybrid as in semi-dedicated, being packages like 2GB ram, 25% guaranteed processor, etc. "Semi Dedicated" if you will. I've been considering opening up a sub-company of GeekLayer for a few weeks now that sold fully managed xen virtual private server "hybrids", although be it with a slight twist.
I want to launch a site for mp3's and pictures. Which kind of hosting is better for this kind of site.And i am expecting more traffic from India.So Hosting from which country is better for me. And one more thing , Are there any restrictions for serving mp3 files on any site.
I donno what kind of this attack. Dddos or syn attack?. Every time my apache server down dan cpu load very high because of this.. please help me how to defend attacker like this because when im block that ip in iptables after 3/4 hour it come again with another ip. What must i do?
Many connection like below example IP 18.104.22.168. Just one ip per onetime attack but so many same ip 22.214.171.124 can see when type netstat -anp... Im just paste a few here
I am planning to set up a VPN server for a group of about 4 people who will use it as an "internet proxy" for *all* their internet connectivity. (They live in a country where internet activity is severely restricted (and monitored), and I think a VPN would be a good solution for them.)
However, I have no idea what kind of processing power or system resources are needed for this kind of situation. Is a simple VPS ok? How much memory would be good? How about server speed?
The server will be linux (probably CentOS) and will use OpenVPN.
I'm thinking that there probably doesn't need to be a whole lot of raw CPU power or RAM, but maybe I'm wrong?
vpsland.com what kind of passive support they have ? 48H without any progress ... i bought VPS three months back and i am avoiding to disturb their sleeping APAIC but this is the first issue i have with their support , my vps turned offline with out any known reason no billing ,no abusing emails ..etc ...
i have about 80 domains with godaddy and about 30-40 with 1and1. i have two hosting packages with 1and1 a "home" package and a "business" package. i have a main site up on the business package right now. the home package has tons of files from an old forum that really could just be wiped out.
My question is that i have a few sites being developed right now. 3-4 to be exact, can i host them all on the same package? i want each to not be a sub of anything. What do i do? Calling tech support yielded worthless answers. Do i need a different type of account?
I had a pretty hectic week dealing with these 3 customers with ddos problems and got to try a few different ddos datacenters for each of them.
First I got these two anime sites, I put them on mine and a friends staminus box as soon as their dns resolved 1000s of ips came through sending syn on port 80, it would just knock port 80 out filling up contrack table, etc. Id ban a few hundred ips and some ranges 100s more would come. In the bandwidth it only shows about 200kbs incoming as well.
We had put in an emergency ticket with staminus and was told bascially we are idiots and that only 4 packets per second were coming into the server, I was looking at the tcpdump and the kernel was dropping 10-20 thousand packets a second just from the ips id banned.
So after a day or two of this of saying we didnt have an attack I moved them to a gigeservers vps I got from funtoosh at sh3lls.net As soon as I moved the sites over there it stopped dead so giges filters automatically picked it up. So either staminus doesnt protect against that type or what. It seemed like a a regular syn flood.
So for customer 3, this person has had numerous problems dealing with ddos. He says that the attacker has this tool that exploits the verlisign dc++ hub, that it takes over and has every user send ddos to the server of their choice.
he had been on sharktech a few months per my reccomendation, he said they could not stop the attacks. he came to me said this was his last resort, so I said well surely staminus would stop it. As soon as his dns resolved on staminus server it got destroyed, nothing got filtered, couldnt even login the box. I didnt have access to staminus portal so I couldnt file a ticket, I had went in their irc again and could not get them to nullroute the ip, understandable since I didnt have access to the ticket system. So I immediatly deleted his dns and the attacks came for up to 12 hours hitting the ip he used to be on.
Id ban thosands , entire /8 ranges and it would just reload and start hitting again.
These syn floods sent very little data at slow intervals so i see why it was so hard to filter.
SO then I move him to gigeservers vps, his site is now up 12 hours, in netstat you would see teh occasional ip coming in and sending syn then closing connection so I thought it had it filtered. We was celebrating, as soon as we did I relaized I put my foot in my mouth as the attacks started full scale there. Nothing i really could do software wise as the vps kept running out of memory So I just had funtoosh remove the ip.
My client the victim was hanging out in their dc++ hub at zerohour.mafiahub.net and pasting ne the logs translating from romanian on how they commanded the attacks. But supposedly they can connect to any dc++ hub and use this tool to take it over and have every user on the hub send ddos. The tool and exploit they are using is private thank god so it seems only a few romanian hacking groups have this.
This kind of attack could not be filtered at sharktech, staminus, or gigeservers I had tried it on softlayer first, had them add it to ddos guard, it knocked Both my servers offline that was on same subnet. It sends very small packets and slow intervals, there is absolutely nothing you can do software wise.
Just giving everyone a heads up on what kind of methods are being used. If someone does think their hosting can block these attacks via hardware or software id be more then happy to give you the customers name, and they do not care to pay as long as the attacks can be filtered.
I have a dedicated that is oversized for the task (Q6600, 8gig RAM, Sata Raid-10 array), which is running a medium/small vBulletin site.
I have thought about providing free image hosting for the members, so I could have 100-300 people hosting sig images and other graphics on the server, which they in turn would link into forums and other places which could create quite a few requests for those graphics.
Is there anyway to quantify what type of load this static, image hosting would create?
The server currently is typically around .05 to .1 server load with nearly flatlined CPU's.
I am wondering, when you are offering MSSQL server in a dedicated server, would you quote your customer a Per Subscriber License? or Per CPU license? It has big big differences. What is the common practice? I have an headache studying the complicated license usage details.
