Shared Hosting And Search Engines

Apr 29, 2008

I have heard that using shared hosting accounts is risky for search engine rankings because if one site on the server breaks the rules then the whole server can be penalized. Is there a cheap type of hosting package that provides the same functionality and does not share the same IP with hundreds of other sites?

Search Engines And Pinging

Apr 15, 2008

I have a hardware firewall on my server that does not allow pinging or trace routes from anyone outside the vpn.

So, pinging my server or a website on it will return a "request time out" for each try even though the websites come up fine and connectivity is fine.

I'm told this is for enhanced security but it's also my understanding that search engines and some programs will ping a site before attempting to crawl it or index a page on it. I guess this saves time and bandwidth for the search engine bot.

Is this true? and is there a security risk for opening my firewall to allow pinging?

Search Engines Continue To Pickup Domain Used For Forwarding

Jan 10, 2008

We have a bunch of domains we use to forward into various locations on our site, so for instance: [url] would forward to [url].

I am currently running a Windows 2k3 Server with IIS6. The way I achieve these forwards is to set up another site, put the forwarding domain in the host header, then have it forward out to my desired directory. However, now Google has been picking up my forwarding domains with their robots, and getting addresses like [url],
which does not exist, just [url]does, so people are getting returned a lot of 404 errors.

How can I stop this? Am I setting up the domain forwarding wrong?

Change Host, Change Domain And Getting Search Engines Up To Speed

Feb 5, 2008

Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.

2 Issues:

#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect
We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file

Redirect 301 / [url]

The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. redirected to their new website (i.e. Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???

#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:

New Company
Short Meta Description

What steps did I miss in this transition?

What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?

What Kind Of A Hosting For A Fast Torrent Search Engine

Jul 26, 2008

I want to host a torrent search engine (not a torrent site with actual torrents hosted, only a search engine).

It has to be really fast. I have a few questions?

What hosting is required for this site to be lightning fast? Most of it is due to the coding of the site but how much of it is reliant of the server? Any suggestions?

Also, is it better to start small and upgrade as more visitors come? Or is it just better to get a big server?

Im using RHES 4 + lastest kernel 2.6 and the latest release version.

How To Backup Host Account With Out SSH Access

Oct 1, 2007

I am moving hosts and my old host is unable to backup my current site and give me a single tar or zip
file of my websites (They do not use cpannel)

The only access I have to them is var ftp and there custom control pannel, I have been backuing up.

My new cpanel host has given me SHH access and I was trying to
run a ftpsync a perl based script to sync a site but it times out "421 No Transfer Timeout (900 seconds)"

At the moment I am backing up the site to my local pc but it has been running for the last 12 hours, All the sites only total about 350mb but they are made up of lots of small files and I think that this is the reason why it is taking so long.

I wanted to know if any one had any other ideas as I am a little bit worried that I might lose some data that is why I would like to some how backup my old host direct to my new host.

How To Access Hosting From A Public Place

Aug 8, 2007

I often need to access my sites from public places, which are behind firewalls, don't have access to hard disk and any Windows tool (just plain internet access).

Problem: firewall, closed ports: 8082 (cPanel), 2078 (SSL; I don't know, if I'll need this), 2077 and maybe others.

Which hosting features I need? to be able to

1. access cpanel, when port 8082 is closed (I was using until now with success).
2. for uploading files from other websites directly to my website (without prior downloading on a PC hard disc) - I've herad SSH should work, but what exact SSH I need - any experience someone? Any other solution? I was trying WEb Disc feature in cPanel11 but it needs port 2078 or 2077 open...
