I was asked to redesign one web site. Nothing much complicated. I've got username and pass to hosting provider. Now I can see the files of web site that are already there but how can I download them because only upload seems to be possible. And if so why is that so?
I recently came across a banner which said 750 GB hostin and 7500 GB monthly bandwidth for only few bucks a month. I just want to ask what they are doing ? Is 750 GB hard drive available in market ? I don't see any when I goto purchase a dedicated from dedicated server comapnies.
Earlier i thought it was a gimmick and then a friend of mine had hosting from there..when I logged into the panel then it also said: 750 Gb space etc.
So I am just curious how they are doing it ? Oh Also this is just for 1 client..so they might be hosting alot of clients on the same server. How they are doing it ? Whats the benefit ?
Makes me crazy..where we low end people will go ? Please tell me whats the catch in the plan?
I've always used German hosts because they are much cheaper than my homeland Greek alternatives, the latency (70ms Germany vs 30ms Greece) is bearable.
Until recently I used Strato single cpu dedicated servers, which allowed me 2000gb at 100mb/s. Although I came close, I never actually reached that 2000gb allocation.
Ever since moving to 1und1 (to a quad core) the server's speed difference has attracted more visitors and pageviews. Now my bandwidth usage has gone to 3000gb per month and at peak it requires 20-30mb/s.
The problem is that 1und1 limits you to 10mb/s if you go over 1000gb, and then requires 'resetting' it every 250gb in order to get back to 100mb/s speed.
Does anyone know of a european host that offers truly unlimited bandwidth? Every time I hit the 10mb/s limit, my pageviews go down, users leave the site.
I've contemplated writing a simple heartbeat script that polls the control panel every 5 minutes and checks if the limit has been crossed, at which it will automatically reset it for me.
Is it possible to buy a dedicated server off eg Dell and host your own website on it from home ie with a www prefix to the url- Do ye know any good tutorial on it. Would 20Mbit bandwidth be enough bandwidth for a fairly busy php ,mysql site? Completely new to this.
What is involved in hosting a website from a local PC?
I have developed a site on 'localhost' on my PC and am running ISS, I also have a domain name plus forwarding. My internet connecton is broadband and I'm using an ADSL/Ethernet router. How do I connect it up?
I have a dedicated server currently hosted over by Aplus.NET
I have a 3000 GB Monthly Transfer limit and we have been going over this limit for the past few months. This has resulted in a large sum of overage fees.
I am looking to go to another hosting company that is just as good as Aplus.NET, if not better... with a better traffic rate. A friend told me about Choopa.com and I wanted to know how good of a company they were. What are some other top reliable hosting companies with premium servers and that specialize in unmetered bandwidth?
I am planning to create a website for my business. Its a bulk exports business and there will be very few visitors, less than 1000 a month. Also space needed should also not exceed 100 mb as I will only have some html information pages and a few pictures of my products.
However, the webhost should be reliable and have an easy to use interface as I am a beginner in this field (I hear cPanel is good). Also I have 2 more domains/businesses which I hope this same hosting should cover so it should have addon hosting.
Please recommend a reliable hosting provider with a good interface and price under $25 per year.
The registrar I will be using for the domain is Namecheap as I am planning to register a .in (India) domain name and very few have that option.
A few days back i had made a post asking about which would the best host for a dating website that me and a couple of friends were planning to start. Thanks alot to everyone for the answers.
However now we have decided to go with a gaming website, as the idea appeals to most of us.
The concept is to have a real time online game running on the server 24X7, people can join any time they want and leave any time they want, the game would still keep progressing. My main concerns with such a site are:
1. Bandwidth : As people will be online for a long time playing the game I am guessing we will need good amount of bandwidth
2. Server CPU : Will we end up eating lot of server CPU as the game engine will be running 24X7 on the server? What kind of implications does this have? I dont see any CPU specific details in the hosting plans i have seen so far.
Please advise on the above two. What kind of hosting should I be looking for? Hosting budget is 30$/month (max).
I have a friend who has a dedicated server right now that uses a good 4GB for all his website content. (not streaming media but just a whole bunch of scripts and etc. well thats what he tells me). And so anyways, his SQL database is about 1-2GB. And he is not too sure about his monthly traffic but its a social networking site with a good amount of users (so its actively used by many users). Would it be necessary for him to have a dedicated server or do you think he could cut costs with a shared hosting account at like host gator or some other shared hosting service like that? I guess my biggest concern is his current database. A lot of shared hosting companies (from what i saw) offer unlimited Mysql Tables do they have size limits? And does a bigger sql database drastically effect the performance of the overall server?
I am re-developing a website that launched 8 yeas ago. When the site launched it was developed in TCL and had an Oracle back end. The site's previous developer is still hosting the site on his server.
Long story short, we are re-developing the site on a new server at a different location. We'd like to re-launch on the old server (to help maintain Google search rankings), but we are developing in .Net and SQL. The old server is Linux. We want to maintain our ranking on Google since we are "Top Ten" on more than 20 great keyword phrases.
If we use a DNS forward from the old IP to the new one, are we going to loose rankings on Google? Obviously yes. But would it be beneficial to help the old developer buy a SQL server so the DNS forward is to a server 2 feet away as opposed to across the country? Does Google treat these equally?
I have started a new image hosting website and currently i alloted 7 GB Disk Space and 30GB BW. I know it will not be enough after the site get famous. So which host i can go for to be in a safer side with my image hosting website?
I believe it's ev1server.net But i'm not sure if it's correct or not. This website is jacking some of my cursors. He/she doesn't even rename the files that he/she takes. It's the exact same filename as the one's I have on my website. Also when you look internally you can see information about the cursors. It says something like created by, animated by etc.
I just want to contact his webhost to remove my cursors.
The first thing i'm thinking of is cpanel but there's many others If you're runing a server with 5000gb traffic/bandwidth per month When you're creating hosting accounts, could you allow 5000gb in each new account you're creating?
Like if you had unmetered, you'd put unmetered in every new account Considering no account would ever reach any way near their monthly allowance.
I've been looking for a VPS with windows, ability for torrents and unmetered bandwidth. I've tried leaseweb and I did not like their service one bit for support. i did not use their 10mb unmetered though. I then tried FDC and they were ok, but now I'm looking for something else that is more like FDC then anything. With FDC I was running windows 2003, unmetered bandwidth and was doing some torrents a bit. Not music or movies though, i hate 99.9% of the music out and don't bother with movies or software or any of that junk. my speed was fine at up to 100mb literally. downloading from the net to my FDC server would go as much as 80mb or so, peaking a bit faster for like half a second. Anyhow, the speed their was fine.
So I'm just looking for something else is all. The server I was on was a VDS and cost was for me $79. I had 512mb ram and 100gb drive space.
I used to use dedimove.com, but they have dropped off the face of the earth i moved to another host, id rather not say them name as i dont want to give them a bad name and have no complaints with their service other then the speeds are not very good...
im looking for a 100mbit port and under 100 dollars price range as the site really doesnt make any money... and at least 3 TB transfer...
The company I work for is doing a promotional site that will probably involve a good chunk of progressive (as in, not quite the same as streaming) video -- basically my best guess is that everyone who views the site will likely download between 6 and 50 megabytes of video depending on how long they spend on the site, etc... I would imagine most people would be at the low end of that, maybe 12 megs, but it's hard to predict...
The tough spot is there will be TV and banner ads purchased for this promotion, and it's not entirely clear to us how good response will be. It could be 5,000 visitors in a day ... it could be 250,000 in a day... the response to various advertising campaigns our clients have done has just varied a lot...
So let's say we have 150,000 visitors downloading an average of 12.5 megs of video - that's about 2 terabytes of transfer in a month.
How much should we expect to pay for that kind of data transfer, and are there good providers that will scale with us? I don't think we mind sacrificing a few hundred bucks our first month only to find that traffic was low -- but if it's going to cost thousands to move 2-3 terabytes of data via a CDN, what are our other options? Does anyone scale well even if it's unpredictable? I realize we have to pay some sort of premium for that scalability or it's not really fair to the hosting provider.. but what price range should we be looking at?
