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?

Basic Web Host

Oct 10, 2009

I've created loads of sites before, mostly using high end VPS or dedicated servers. I'm somewhat new to shared hosts, having used just 2 before. The 2 being:

1. Hostmonster - brilliant. Yes, it's oversold badly but it's service is second to none and I never had an issue on a medium-traffic site. However, I do know they phone you to verify your account, and I currently do not have possesion of a phone (travelling).

2. iWhic. Had some serious downtime at one point, but else reliable. Customer service OK. Basic plan does not support unlimited domains.

I am looking to make a personal blog, possibly a travel blog or car review site.

I may still use iWhic, but I'd like to be open to suggestions:

[requirements]Unlimited domains
5GB Diskspace
Unlimited Email Accounts
20GB+ Bandwidth
Reseller would be nice (host my friends)
cPanel (this is a must).

[budget]
While technically my budget is unlimited, I would like to stick it to the $5-10/month mark. Pay per month is preferable.


I like the idea of just a big oversold host, cause they are generally reliable and I won't be using that much resources and the bonuses (such as Adwords credit) are generally useful.

Some Basic Web Hosting

Jul 27, 2008

I've noticed that theres really a shortage of freebsd web hosts which surprised me at first because I've always considered fbsd an os built from the ground up to be a server. That also happens to be the os I have the most experience with. I can only guess its because in comparison to the linux community the freebsd is relatively small and not as well known.

So basically what I'd like to do is rent a dedicated server, run freebsd 64 on it, and hopefully get a small successful business going. I've been looking around a lot for reliable freebsd servers (I really don't have the upfront money to do colocation) and I've found one that offers me 500gb disk space and 10mbps unmetered bandwidth (or 3300 gb/month I guess).

My first question is could someone please clarify unmetered bandwidth. In the past pretty much every host I've looked at offers a set amount of bandwidth (like in gb), and I'm not completely clear on how this whole 10mbps fits in with that.

My second question is more general. Really I'm looking for honest opinions on the ease of breaking into this business. I'm sure theres a lot of people who start up and shut down constantly which contributes to the reputation of a lot of smaller hosts being unreliable, but is this a feasible goal? I can really put in any amount of time necessary but I only have about $500 to start out.

Basic Hosting

Oct 7, 2008

I'm new here and I just want to start my first web site. What I need is just something basic: email, web stat, stability, etc. I do not need lots of space and bandwidth (of course, it is best if it is upgradable). Any suggestion on hosting company with lower budget plans? I hope I can start from a cheap monthly rate, and can upgrade in the future when needed.

And I have some questions when I look into different hosting plans:

1. I found many hosting plans offer free domain, so I can save may be $10 for the domain name registration. Would there be any disadvantage for using the free domain provided, like it may not be portable in the future?

2. After this first web site, I may build a few more web sites in the future. I found many plans offer "unlimited domains" to be hosted. Does it mean I can just build new web sites using the same hosting account without paying extra? Would there be any limitation or disadvantage for this, compared to using a new hosting account to build the new website?

Basic Hosting

Dec 25, 2007

I have a pretty powerful Dell machine that I would like to turn into a server that would be available on the Internet. The reason I want to do this is because I need to run 2 programs (1 is a trading platform and the other was custom made for me) and I think a hosting company will say no if I ask them to run programs on their server.

In general, I know very little about servers and I need your help! How can I turn this machine (running my 2 programs) into a server available on the Internet? Someone told me I need to install IIS but I am sure it's more than that

Web Server At Home--Basic Concepts

Oct 5, 2009

I tried installing Apache and, later on, Wampserver. I also tried looking up this topic in Build Your Own Database Driven Web Site, Using PHP and MySQL.

My goal is to see, on my home computer, how my new Web pages would look as I work on them, and that includes things like includes, which can't be seen on a regular home computer (mine is Vista). Later on, I also expect to play around a lot with PHP.

OK, how am I supposed to do this? Is there a folder on my home computer where these files should be? Do I need to install them on another computer on my home LAN?

I just don't get these first basic steps; I don't know what to look for.

Basic Windows Server Setup On A PC?

Jul 13, 2008

I want to be able to do some testing on a Windows Server. Instead of finding a domain and finding web space I figured I could just use one of my own PCs as a web server.

However, I've never done that before and have no idea what I would need.

Does anyone have a tutorial of what needs to be installed (OS, software, etc) in order to setup a Windows web server? Doesn't have to have any features other than supporting ASP. And I'd need to be able to access it from the internet via my ISP and a port.

Basic Windows Migration Info

Mar 16, 2007

We primarily work with unix servers and are new to the windows hosting. We have have a client with a large site moving from a shared account to a vps account on another host.

The shared account is on a server run by a local company and any type of login could probably be gotten for that host. And the other is a VPS so essentially functioning like dedicated.

Is there a way to transfer server to server instead of server to local to server? The equivalent of SSHing files from server to server on Unix?

Setting Up A Basic Fallback Solution For E-mail

Apr 25, 2009

I am considering moving my webhosting homepage to another network, so clients can still access our webpage when the network is down.

Because I use 4PSA DNS Manager on the server in the other network, I cannot run Plesk on that same server. They could be conflicting. I had more reasons of not installing Plesk on that server, but I forgot.

I would however host my mail on the old server, located in our own network, but with e-mail fallback, so we do not lose any e-mails that our clients have sent us.

Is such a configuration hard to configure? The server just needs to work as fallback server/batched SMTP server for 1 domain.

Apache :: Basic Auth User Not Logged In Common Log File

Jul 18, 2013

I use Basic Auth to limit access to a web site. This seems to work ok. I noticed though in the logs that the logged in user is not logged:

80.....188 - - [16/Jul/2013:09:56:29 +0200] "GET ..." 200 1844 "...." " ...

I would expect the second - to be replaced by the logged in user. The doc says, the user is logged if the document is protected. I do protect the whole directory using directory match. Without log in I fail to retrieve the document in question.

IWeb Technical Support Reps And System Admins Dont Understand Basic TCP-IP Networking

Aug 22, 2008

I want to pass on a warning before anyone goes with iWEB. I just ordered a $269 a month dedicated server so I could run vmware on it for my own virtual machines that I need.

With this server I got 7 IPs.

The primary IP they assigned me is say for example: 70.xx.15.171 with a GW of 70.xx.15.161. The secondary ips they issue me are 70.xx.18.249-254. So these are on a completly different subnets.

After talking on the phone to several differnt people including tech support who tells me this will work jsut fine useing thoes secondary ips on my VMs and to not put a gateway address. I talk to my account manager he says to open a ticket that he will forward to their system admins.

This is the ticket I opened.

I just got a new server set up CL-T113-140CL. It was
assigned the primary ip of 70.xx.15.171 with a GW of 70.xx.15.161. My
secondary ips are 70.xx.18.249-254. The server we got from you is a
VMWare host. We need to use the secondary IPs for the Guest VMs. How
ever the primary and secondary IPS are on different subnets and so
the VMs useing the IPs 70.xx.18.249-254 can not talk to the gateway.
I need to have a gateway server IP to use for my VMs.

Please either give me a valid GW address for the 70.38.19.x subnet or
assign new secondary IPs on teh 70.xx.15.x subnet with a SM that can
talk to the 70.xx.15.161 GW assigned.

this is the reply I get back from their system adminstrator

The gateway to be used for your secondary IP addresses is the same as
the one for your primary. You should not have anything to change,
gateway-wise. Just leave the current one as default gateway and
everything should work just fine.

If there is anything please do not hesitate to contact us.

Are they brain dead at iWEB? DO they understand basic TCP-IP networking at all?

Here is my last reply. I tried to make it real simple for them to understand.

This does not address the issues. Do you even know what a virtual
machine is? It is a virtual computer running on the host computer.
The host computer has a valid ip address of 70.xx.15.171, sm:
255.255.255.224 gw: 70.xx.15.161. The virtual machines (or guest
operating systems) if I assign it the IP address of 70.xx.18.249 SM:
255.255.255.248 with no gateway it is physically impossible for it to
reach the gateway of the host pc 70.xx.15.161. You have to understand
the Virtual Machine operates as a completely separate computer. It
requires its own gateway. with no gateway specified it has no way to
get out of its local subnet to get to the 70.xx.15.x subnet. What
happens if you put two physical computers on one hub. The computer on
port 1 of the hub has the IP info 70.xx.15.171 SM: 255.255.255.224 GW
70.xx.15.161. The second computer is on port 2. It has the ip info
of: 70.xx.18.249 SM: 255.255.255.248 GW: NONE.
How is the pc on port 2 going to communicate with the pc on port
1? This is the exact situation we are in. There has to be a
gateway to route the IP traffic from pc2 to pc1 to get onto the
internet.
