I have after a few years of working created my free webhosting site again, and I must admit that alot have changed since I ran my site back in 1999 - 2002, google has become harder, wth is up with that Alexa site and yeah well.. you get the idea!
Atm, I have a PR of 1.. but, as the domain has laid dorment for alot of years, that's expected.. however, I really want to get back in the game and make myself a popular site.
Anyways, the link's <snip> (same difference) and its fast, easy and userfriendly.. <snip>
I have a busy dating website with 30 000 registered users and ~200-600 users online all the time. I would like to offer free email with ~10 MB mailbox to all users.
I have an idea to use scripts provided by b1gmail.de. Its similar to Hivemail or Socketmail. It uses only one POP3 catch-all mailbox and stores all emails in MySQL database, including attachments.
My worries are about MySQL. If I have 30 000 users and each user has some 5000 messages in his/her mailbox: 30 000 x 5 000 = 150 000000
That's 150 million rows in one table!
I know, not all users will have 50000 messages in their mailboxes, but the number of users increases about +2000/month.
I can't imaggine how long time will need MySQL to find messages for each user in the table with 150 000000 rows.
I don't know - maybe it's not a problem at all. I just never had such large tables and I don't know if it's possible at all.
Another problem: I have Fedora Core 2 installed and even don't know yet if it supports files larger than 2 GB.
Maybe it's better to set-up normal POP3 mailboxes for all users instead of using one catch-all box and storing data in MySQL?
do not post warnings about spammers. In the beginning I'll provide email addresses only to "gold" members. I opened this thread because I don't want to set-up a system which will hang after a couple of months because MySQL will not be able to handle it or I will have other unknown problems.
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?
Im in the process of setting up my ecommerce store selling baby/childrens clothing items etc. But I cant decide what webhosting site to use. Ive heard a lot about hostmonster and 1and1...which one of these are better?
I've just received my second suspension from them, for having 5 visitors on my website, which was abuse of their resources.
I had issues with them last month, they claimed I was using too much resources and had to upgrade to Business class. I've paid for two years there as it is.
Every time I would get these notices, I'd work with them and it was found that one comment bot was hitting my site repeatedly (one post several times in a row which really shouldn't cause any problems anyway) and would cause things to raise. In their email, their support said:
Your account is unsuspended now. Please check and prevent future overloads. Also we can block ip addresses of your referrals, when all connections is from one ip instead of suspending your account. Should we block 188.8.131.52 and similar?
When I said yes, I was sent this reply:
IP 184.108.40.206 blocked in our firewall. We'll act similar way, when your account will be leeched from one IP. Now this ticket is being closed.
So tonight, I redo a post, since their hotlink protection isn't stopping hits on the photo being linked to, which involved uploading an image and deleting the old, and shortly thereafter I get this:
We have suspended your account due to resource abuse. Please find the related information below:
All of them supposedly me. But at any rate, only 5 users at namecheap can apparently bring about a suspension. I have never in my life had such treatment by a host. Most of the site is a static site, where most people land. And this is for less than 50 people on a daily basis.
They may have a good reputation as a domain reseller (yes, they're now ICANN registrars, but they haven't switched over yet, they're still reselling for Enom) but they had better rethink their webhosting.
People I know who have WordPress pages at places like Dreamhost, Lunarpages, all the rest have way more traffic than I do and yet they don't have these problems. I'm just sick at they way I've been treated there.
Whatever you do, don't host with namecheap. I'm truly sorry I did. And if anyone wants to verify that I host with them, it's hauntedlights.com, obviously a really exploitable site. It's about haunted lighthouses.
I have been with web hosting talk for just this month and in the past 8 days I have had down time at least 1 everyday for around 2-3 hours. I just contacted the VPS support to see why I am not even able to start the server using Virtuozzo Control Panel and this is what they said:
'We are facing a network issue at the moment. Our engineers are aware of this problem. Efforts are on to restore service at the earliest. We apologise for the inconvenience.' And then I ask them the simple question, Why was I not informed about all this downtime and errors on the system - This is what he said to me:
'We have already posted this on our forum. You can have a look at http://www.webhosting.uk.com/forums/network-status/4724-network-issue.html' So I say to him:
'So I get expected to look at your forums every time I have downtime or any problems with the network'
'I think this will be the last month of me paying for this server.' Then he says: 'No every time but if there is any major issues, we always keep posted on our forums.'
As generally i stick to hardware...but anyways i have encountered this problem..
I have installed WAMP on my sever
I have opened up Port80 to it(port forwarding)
I can enter both internal address (address of server 192.1068.1.108) and external ips (my external address 220.127.116.11) into my browser on another computer in the network and it works but as soon as you try on a computer outside my network on the internet some where it just times out....
