Is There Any Website Redundancy Service (dns Based)

Oct 5, 2009

Letís say I have the website is a very popular website and his content mirrors in 2servers (Server A and Server B) in 2 different datacenters (exactly same content).

When Server A fails due to datacenter or rack problem and no site is responding, then I need some service to transfer ALL traffic to server B. Is there any (paid or free) service doing such a thing? If yes, what about dns propagation? As far as I am concerned, dns propagation is a very slow procedure depending on each internet provider.

So how could we instantly make Server B to come live to ALL visitors? Is there any quick and reliable dns redundancy system without having to wait for dns propagation?

Website Availability Monitoring Service

Jan 6, 2009

any recommendations for a website availability monitoring service? That is, I'd like a service that checks my site regularly, say every 5 minutes, and then calls my cellphone /txts-me if it ever goes down.

Googling around turns up a sizable number of places that do this. But, I'd like to make I'm going with somebody who's reasonably good.

Pingdom Offering A Free Website Monitoring Service

Jul 1, 2009

"No strings attached" - [url]

I use Pingdom "Pro" (or whatever the paid version is to be branded as), and I think it is fantastic. It is yet to let us down or misinform us. It'll be interesting to see whether we see quality dilution from the inevitable rush of freebie accounts.

How To Keep Email On Current Host And Forward Http Traffic To New Host

Apr 11, 2008

I'm configuring a website for a client who has moved their web hosting to downtownhost, but is keeping their email hosting with their current provider. They do not want to configure an MX entry on DTH to autoforward email back to their current provider because they don't want their email to pass through DTH.

In order to do this, do I keep the nameserver entries on the current provider the same, and configure an http redirect to point to DTH? Or is there something else I should configure on the current provider?

Email Service

Jun 13, 2009

I am trying to find the best economical solution regarding my email address but I need some advice pls.

I have a very small package with asmallorange and I have set up one of my business email in it. I didn't calculate that this business email could take so much space. I have some assistants which work in other places. One of my problems is these asistants who need to access this address too, are not allowed to access any free email provider like gmail, yahoo at their work computers because of their work policy. So I can't do forwarding and I need to have this email address under my domain.

I am thinking of these options:

1) Get more space . This will become expensive for me.

2) use a dedicated email service under my domain name.
I have no experience here and I wonder if using a gmail service under my domain will be blocked for my collaborators.

3) change host ( I am afraid to lose my data and my website database).

Redundant EMail Service

Jun 11, 2009

We are a hosting company in Colombia, and we want start selling corporate email service.

The main idea is have two servers with redundance, I think this servers have to share the filesystem I don't know if using a scsi disk or just a network file system. We also want to have a good appliance for stop the SPAM, Im not so sure if we need to have redundance on it, its ideal but we are just starting the bussines and we dosn't have cliets yet.

Can anyone share their setup with us, and give us recomendations or tips?

Another option is, if someone know how to do that and have implemented this setup before and want to work $$ with us to implement that, please contact me to jbravo[at]

Terrible Service From ThePLANET.. Looking For New Host

Oct 17, 2009

I dont want this to happen to anyone and thats why posting this here, plus I need some suggestions for a good dedicated hoster...

I been with for over a year and now on these days i got the WORST service ever..... I am paying $500 month and transfering new servers to planet from my other dedicated hosters....

Here is the story.. My billing period is 10/16.. I advise planet team to cancel one of my server on 10/12. While I was travelling, following day 10/13, I acreated an offical ticket to cancel the server..... Planet team edited my ticket and asked me 'do you really want to cancel or so"... Since on the flight, i didnot got a chance to see it.. 10/15, i logged in and they send me a message, you will be billed for next month since you failed to confirm....

ridiculus..?? They want me to pay one extra month for a non use server... Do they think i am getting free money..?

I contacted the billing rep, instead of supporting, they are just washing off there hand like 'sorry its ur problem, you do what ever you want, we dont care attitude'... I still have $500 monthly server with them and they fighting for $165.. Planet sales people spend too much time with me to get my business, however there billing team is just kicking me....

I created 2 tickets and told them 4 times to cancel, however they still have questions whether i really wanted to cancel..Here is the timing of ticket creation..

10/12/2009 8:09:04 PM
10/13/2009 8:38:05 PM
10/13/2009 8:56:51 PM
10/15/2009 11:30:25 PM""

I have few servers with Liquidweb.... I am planning to switch my planet servers to some other hosters... I fould Is there any horror stories just like this..?? or is there any good dedicated hosters who provide support instead of stealing money...??

I am planning to file this is BBB and inform my creditcard company.. Any other recomendations to get my money back...?? Please help kind people.. I am really frustruated.. I dont mind to gave money to charity, however these kind of rip off cannot be tolerated...

This is message I send to them after several conversations.. they dont care...leave if you want....


You are forcing me to cancel all my servers from and switch to iweb or liquidweb. I am paying upto $500 per month for my servers.. and you are fighting with me for $165 for a cancelled server..??

Check the date, I created the regular cancellation ticket on 10/12 and official ticket of 10/13... You guys edited it and holded it and made a statement that we are waiting for final confirmation..? I still not got an answer for my concern. When I send official cancellation, why I need to reconfirm..?? On my first ticket I send you the fuull details.. Note that billing date is 10/16.. Let me know if you need a copy of the credit card transaction...

If this wont get resolved, I wont be a customer for planet starting next month...

Service To Check If An Email Is SPAM

Jun 25, 2008

We have a script that will be sending out emails from our server. A few already have hit the Outlook SPAM folder. The email that's sent is a validation check, where the user has to click a link to verify an account.

Is there some service out there where you can send it your email and it will tell you if and then why it will be caught by leading spam filters?

Hosting A Public Email Service

May 10, 2007

Currently we are running a very successful site for extreme sports. We have just spent 6 months on development of our new site which we will launch in a fortnight. This will free up some of my time to look at other areas and avenues to attract members.

Personally I would love to run a hotmail style service on our website, and believe this would help with the growth of our online community.

Just interested in advice from others on areas to be aware and alert when running a service like this?

I am also trying to make the decision between SocketMail or Atmail. If anyone has opinions on these, or an alternative solution i'm all for that advice too.

Basically at this point I am wanting to get as much advice together as possible, then look to making an informed decision to go ahead or not.

Currently we operate off a dedicated server and i realise this may have to become two servers in the near future with such a service. It is fully managed by myself, and a 3rd party individual I hire to maintain the server on a monthly basis.

Trying To Host A Website From Home PC

May 15, 2009

I am trying to host a website from my home computer. Currently I have it setup and it works and everything. I have my virus database updated, router update, firewall up and running, and I am ready for people to try hacking. But there is one thing I can do. I can't seem to get my website online. I go to and try that IP address on both the computer I am hosting the website from and a different computer downtown but I can access it. I am currently using to tell people to download COMODO EasyVPN to access my website. But they have to download it first to be able to access my website. At one time I had to load it using the IP address I go to but it took it six minutes to load and with the EasyVPN it only takes seconds. I am just wandering if my internet connection is just timing out and not letting anyone on. Is there a software I can use that works like COMODO EasyVPN but lets you type in my External/Public IP address and it go to my website. I mean my connection is slow but with the COMODO EasyVPN software it makes people connecting to my computer fast. I need a software that tunnels my connection to a clients computer.

I am using the XAMPP software to host my website!

Community Website - Which Host

Jul 9, 2008

I've had four different hosts in 1Ĺ year, and I'm noe experiencing problems again with my current host, Lunarpages. Therefore, I really want to make the right choice this time. It would be such a pleasure to see my website run without any problems for more than just 8-9 months at a time...

Anyway, let me try to describe it. It's based on the Content Management System phpFusion. It has news, downloads, forums and screenshots. The site itself is c. 2 GB large (because of forum attachments and screenshots), the download section is c. 15 GB, and the site use up about 700 GB og bandwidth each month. In the forum, there's 100.000 posts, growing day for day, of course. We have 12.000 registered members, but we only have c. 50 members online at the same time -- maximum. Throughout a week, 2.000 members log in, but as said, they are never online at the same time. The members are mostly from Europe, but we do also have members from USA and Australia.

I've had both Lunarpages and Servage as hosts, but I have experienced problems with both of them. Servage has a daily bandwidth limit which I had overlooked, and the website constantly exceeded this. Lunarpages is very, very slow when using a MySQL DB.

CPanel/WHM To Host A Website

Oct 7, 2007

am trying to set it up to host my website. After giving it the ol' college try, I might have done it, I think. I wanted input about what I have done wright and/or wrong configuring the VPS and cPanel/WHM? Please let me know what else I need to post (MX record, A records, DNS zone files, etc...)?

So far I have done:
- Initial set up of WHM
- Created a new account
- Added additional IP address t o the server
- Edited the DNS zone file
- Set up nameservers with registrar,

*I think this is done correctly, if I go to (www), I see:
Index of /
Parent Directory

**I used a guide posted at (www) (link at bottom)

linux OS and version: CentOS v4.5 (centos-4-x86_64)
Kernel Version: 2.6.9-023stab044.4-smp

Manadospace Review---bad Service, Not A Honest Host

Jan 21, 2009

I order a plan at in 12.1.2008, they have 12 Day Money Back Guarantee,but when i ask for Money Back,they rufused!

In 12.18.2008,they mail me that I had been to move on new server with new quota for value hosting plan! But they deleted all my files without any back up.

In 1.4.2009,they close my account without any note or mail.I contact them and they tell me that because my main domain doesn't use they host,and it violate their TOS ,so they close my accout and delete my all files.But I can't find any words like "main domain can't use another host" at [url]termofservice.html in 1.5.2009.

now they modify point 11 of there tos,but I have a copy of there tos in 1.5.2009.

Cheap Host With Good Customer Service

Jun 30, 2008

I am creating a basic static site for my friend's gardening business. It will use html and CSS only, be around 5MB at most and does not require any databases, php support etc.

My problem is that he wants to basically have the site up and running and then be able to forget about it really. I will be going on now and again to update it for him, but that is about it. My experience with free hosts is limited, I have used byethost before, and though very good, they do require a log on every week else they assume the site is no longer wanted and delete the account and all files!

So, my requirements are:
Free host that easily allows to have your own domain name
Email address with the company domain, so, not
Good customer service
Need no more than 20MB (allow for some extra photos to be added)
UK Based would be preferable

Website And Email On Different Servers

I have server A serving the website for my domain and server B handling email for the same domain

Apart from one problem everything is working the way it should. The problem is that all email originating from server A (the one hosting the website) to is delivered locally (server A) and never gets out where it could be routed correctly to server B.

What needs to be done to deliver mail originating from server A to server B?

Website Hacked. Time For A New Host

Jun 14, 2009

I have a small but somewhat popular space-history website. Very simple HTML that I typed into wordpad, but it has long pages full of photos. Since 2003, I've been using with their business-class Windows service.

A few weeks ago, mypages were hacked, and a one line script inserted that called an Adobe Flash file. Apparently this was a server-wise attack, not just my web pages. cleaned this up, but now it has happened again.

This is bad, because Google blacklists my site, and folks on Wikipedia get upset because there are a lot of links to my site.

How are they breaking in to I think I must change hosts, but I don't want to put my image-intensive site on overbooked hardware with limited bandwidth.
