Completely Removing Site

Apr 29, 2008

I've removed a website from my server, terminated the account, removed all files. But when you go to the domain name, you get the "Great Success ! Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server" page. I dont want even that. I want nothing to come up.

I want it to appear as if the domain/server never existed and show up as a 404 or whatever (this was a forced remove). Is there any way to do this? is there something I didnt do? Or am I stuck since the domain is still pointed at my server.

I've tried to give the hint (move), but it hasnt worked, so I have a feeling I'm going to get questions about this new issue. It's a church related group (even thought theyve been warned this was coming), so its hard to be an AHole, but they need to go.

I just want it to come up as if it never existed on my server, if possible.

SolarVPS - Completely Faultess

May 22, 2008

Just thought I would post up a review on what I thought about SolarVPS, as I've had nothing but joy with them.

It was back in 2007 when I decided that shared hosting was getting to slow for my website, and I was advised to get a VPS plan. I was originally with Bluehost, who provided outstanding customer service and value for money, and I was very reluctant to move from them. My worry was that I would move to a service where I was pretty much neglected, and left with 0 support, and many server issues.

However I came across SolarVPS on these forums, and gave them a go. Well I used the lifetime discount voucher, so my package was pretty cheap as it was. My server was setup instantly after payment, and things have been going fine since.

I've recently started up a new project, and needed a new VPS hosting package. So I came along to these forums again today to look for some juicy VPS deals. Came across a fair few, some which did seem very good value for money, but the issue about customer service was bugging me. What if the CS was delayed, what if my support tickets were not addressed, and what if their live chat was only live a few hours in the day. After finding some good deals, I thought hell with it, I'l get another plan with SolarVPS.

So I found their nice 20% off coupon which I applied to my account, making the pan I bought again, pretty good value for money. Bought the plan, immediately received some emails regarding my purchase. I went to the live chat and was talking to one guy, Douglas, about setting my server up. It's the one time that I've felt I was talking to a human via live chat. Not only did this guy sort me out in a snap, but he had a great sense of humour to which is always a bonus.

So, within an hour, I now have a nice new plan setup with SolarVPS that I KNOW I will be pleased with.

Let me just gloss over the points about SolarVPS I think really stand out: ....

Completely Managed Hosting / Secured

Sep 16, 2008

I tried searching around but maybe someone can steer me in the right direction.

I, as probably many other people, are in an interesting predicament.

I love my VPS right now...however obviously since I started with my VPS I'm about to out grow it, with the amount of power that I need.

What I'm looking for is a server which is completely managed, completely secured (some sort of active virus scanning), however I can get in there and have complete control like I would with my VPS, but obviously with more resources.

What I'm looking for is:

2-4GBs of ram
Pentium D (minimum) up to a Xeon 3220 SINGLE processor
1000 - 2000TB / bandwidth
100mb/s uplink
Windows 03 would be great, I'll settle for CentOS though

Budget max is $170/mo.

Server Move - Is There A Way To Setup DNS To Show A Backup Site / Message

Jun 25, 2009

The data centre which I use, is moving all collacated servers to a brand new data centre next week, which will mean a two hour downtime for each of my servers and customer websites.

At the moment my servers utilise two nameservers on seperate servers and when the move happens all websites will be offline with an ugly error message to any visitors.

Does anyone know a good way to setup a page which would be displayed if the web server was down? I am using MS DNS.

My thoughts so far is

1. Setup a 3rd nameserver which is off site from the data centre.

2. Purcahse web hosting / vps for a month on a seperate hosting company

3. Set it up so that it accepts * to a specific IP address in IIS or apache

4. I create an index.php script which gets the host header value sent i.e. [url]and the page then displays a nice maintenace i.e

"We are sorry joeblogs.com is currently down for maintenace, we will be back online shortly".

I think my main question is do I need to setup a 2nd www record in DNS for each site and how do I ensure the 2nd dns (backup record) only gets used when the first website / server is down.

Backup Old Cpanel Site And Restore It On New One But Email Passwords Lost

Aug 9, 2008

I moved from a host to another and wanted to restore/use the email adresses that are already saved on my old host account.

I did a full backup by using Cpanel's wizard and saved it on my computer. Extracted everything and then by using FTP I have put all the files on my new server which is using Cpanel as well.

Although all email adresses are now visible in my Cpanel the old passwords will not work anymore......

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: What Happens To Site Backup Files When Deleted From Panel

Dec 15, 2014

When you delete a site backup from its "Backup Manager" Panel, it is removed and no longer displayed in the Panel. However, I cannot tell if this action actually does anything with the real site backup files in "/var/lib/psa/dumps". Does this action merely remove it from PSA's database but not touch any actual files? If this is true, then how are site backup files supposed to be managed if this action doesn't actually delete them?

I want to use standard ports (443 and 80) on this IP address with some custom program not related to plesk panel and web servers. But now Plesk binds all available IP addresses to it services by default.

My Review Of Limestone Networks (completely Unsatisfied And Bitter)

Sep 1, 2008

I felt the extreme and desperate need to post my experience with Limestone Networks here with the rest of you. Please take time to review it as I find it a vital piece of information when making a decision. I normally don't post my problems here, but this time it's needed.

I have been a customer since 5/17/2008. I was able to get someone via Live Chat when I fist went to the website. I got an instant response on the phone. It all seemed great. The server was up and online within a few hours, I was pleased. The network seemed fine and I'm fairly low maintenance, so I didn't have many complaints.

After having the account for a while, we started getting blacklisted on spam lists. I would submit tickets to see if they could work to get us removed. Typically support tickets where answered fairly slowly - I'd see a response time of a day or two. I didn't complain as I can accept things fairly well.

Next, they released a new server that was almost identical to the one I already had.

They both had the same amount of memory, similar cpus (both quad core), the only difference was one 750 GB drive vs RAID-1 750 GB drives. The price for my system was $249/month, while the new server was priced at like $130/m (the WHT special they just ran). I asked about a price adjustment for my server. They wouldn't do it. So, I asked if we could keep our IP addresses if we moved to another server. They couldn't do that either.

I ordered the new server and moved my customers over to it. It came time to cancel the old server, so I submitted my request for cancellation. I know they automatically bill everything, so I removed my credit cards that were on file to avoid this. I was then told I needed to give a 5 day cancellation notice as per my ToS when I signed up. Unfortunately, I didn't read the ToS close enough - my fault. Somehow they ended up removing the server and I guess they just waived the 5 day notice. I never really got any response on that (or bill for it either).

As of yesterday, I've had the new server for one month. I signed up for it on 7/30, so that'd make my next billing date 8/30. I did forget to add my credit cards back on so it could be auto charged again - my fault. However, less than 24 hours after my due date, I find my server is offline. I submitted a ticket which I will paste below. Bottom line, because I was late (not even by one day), they shut off and reformatted my server. Here's my support ticket:


My server LSN-D1595 is offline due to non payment. I need it back online asap! I will add a payment option to the billing system which you can charge. Just get the server back online please. ***-***-**** if you need to reach me.

Hi Breck, Unfortunately your servers have been canceled for non-payment. If you wish to purchase new servers with us you can still go ahead and do so, however I am not able to return your original servers to you.

Breck B.
Posted: 08/31/2008 11:11 AM CDT
Ryan, this is completely unacceptable. I am not going to tolerate this! That server has valuble data on it that can't be recovered! I don't care what your policy is, I need that server back online immediately! If you can't make this right, I will be posting my experience on WHT. Bill me hourly if you need to. Just get it online.

I'm sorry, but server LSN-D1595 has already been reformatted.

Closed Ticket


So, there we have it. My server has been reformatted because I'm a day late. I've never seen anything like this in my entire life. Money wasn't a problem - I was away and just wanted to have a good Labor Day weekend. Also, I NEVER received an invoice via email, snail mail, nor a phone call. I got no notice at all. Along with that, according to their ToS, my data should be available within 15 days of my non payment (whether or not the server is).

I do plan on taking this to court- I have several people who also had access to the server who are interested in a lawsuit.

If slow responses, being blacklisted on spam databases, and being reformatted if you are under 24 hours late is okay with you - I'd really recommend Limesone Networks! They give you a great feeling like nobody cares about you. I'm not sure why a company would invest so much money in advertising, if they really aren't serious about keeping the customers that they get. This has been the worst day of my life. I hope all of you can get something from this and learn to stay away from companies like Limestone. I definately have learned my lesson the hard way.

There is no option to configure FTP Accounts or anything FTP in Plesk. There is empty space where the link should be.
