I am not a technical person but am a sole business owner trying to muddle through this. Your help is much appreciated.
I want to combine my www with non www site via a 301 permanent redirect. My goal is to combine my page links in hopes that one day Google will increase my page ranking (which is sadly at 1). I don't think that combining them now (about 100 links each) will do anything to my PR but I do want it set up properly now so it's all set.
I have been reading all over the Internet on how to do this and working with my site host: Go Daddy. It's been a struggle but I believe that because I'm on a shared Windows server, there is not a solution for me to do this. If I was on a dedicated server I could do it through IIS but that option is not available for those on a shared server.
A posting I read from someone else who is also on Go Daddy (on another site) said he went and transferred his site from Windows to Linux and then was able to do the 301 redirect.
I don't understand what Windows, Linux, Apache, etc. means. My site is very simple: advertisingspark dot com. Can I transfer to Linux? Should I transfer to Linux or Apache?
Is this going to be too complicated for me? Or should I have someone else host my site? My annual fee is due in about a month so it's a good time for me to switch if I should.
I don't know if it is relevant but I had a website designer create my site and then I edit it myself in a cheap editing tool. I know basic HTML (I'm sure my designer is cringing!) If I switch to Linux or Apache, can I no longer work in html files?
I currently have a dedicated server with beachcomber.net and have had a great experience. But I found a promo from myinternetservices.com that may end up as close to 50% off my current price with similar specs. What experiences have people had with either company for dedicated servers? Mainly I'm asking about MyIS since I've already experienced Beachcomber. Does it compare? Which one is better, etc.?
Just in the process of upgrading to new box Plesk 12 (Ubuntu 14.04LTS). ON the previous (plesk 10) I was able to disable ftp services by editing /etc/xinetd.d/ftp_psa - this doesn't seem to be an option now. How to do this on plesk 12?

What's the simplest way to switch over to phpsuexec on a cpanel box, a smooth transition for all domains hosted? Basically, after I complile apqache (via whm preferrably) with phpsuexec and the current (php 5 / apache 2.2) do I need to do anything else, run any commands? I did this in the past, but cannot remember the exact steps.
i would like to move few clients from my old linux VPS that runs on Cpanel .. to my new windows VPS tat runs Plesk .. you see there were several attempts by new provider .. they cant guarantee that accounts can be fully migrated even manually they only copied site files to new server .. the client account's still running on linux vps cpanel, they are intact .. clients dont have any php or mysql files they are just plain HTML and Flash files .. i can move site files .. im concerned about mail accounts and emails that already in my clients inbox (they are using IMAP accounts) .. do you guys know any guideline or step by step how to migrate my clients
P.S. please consider me as an uneducated person .. my background is designing not programming or network administration.
Just an open-ended question that's been bugging me lately. As the industry moves to a more automated approach, I was wondering if cPanel users would likely move to another CP if it was fully automated (including the migration).
Either a custom solution or H-Sphere, if it meant you had one login for all of your services/no need to contact support for anything except actual problems.
I have an account that is going from a shared hosting account to a dedicated with theplanet and I want to transfer it. Concerns I have is that the site is using an SSL. What things do I need to watch out for when transferring. Since I don't have root access I will have to do this transfer with the account function, correct?
This site has a database and SSL, so I thought it would hopefully be easier to use the cpanel account migration tool
I am planning to move my hosting from SHARED to either VPS / Dedicated / Cloud Hosting(MOSSO) . I am quite confused because:
1. I tried lunarpages VPS, they dont offer multiple MSSQL DB. THey offer only 1 and LIMITED to 1 GB. 2. Dedicated from lunarpages also has some limitations. 3. I heard something called as "cloud hosting" from mosso - Cloud sites, Cloud Files, Cloud servers.. I really dont understand what it means..
Can you please help?
1. Windows hosting - ASP, unlimited MSSQL DB and atleast 10GB space. The site will have atleast 100K visitors / month.
I am using linux dedicated servers, but I want to move over to Windows for some stuff I run...
Anyway, I need ideally 1000-1500gb bandwidth on 10mbs connection, ram&cpu is not important as they're very simple things but requires a lot of bandwidth. Location in Europe or USA, but whatever is cheaper...
