Suggestions For SSL Certificate?

Oct 29, 2009

My online store is almost ready to publish and Im trying to work my head around this SSL thing.

So through reading on here Ive determined that only the cart or PII areas need to be secured, not the entire site.

My host provided a free SSL cert but I discovered that it is a domain verification SSL only and there is no "clickable seal" or business verification. Verification is important however Im not sure I need an EV cert (nor that I can afford it).

Im looking for business verification, clickable seal, 128/256, 2048bit, free reissue.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a SSL cert and what I might need? There was someone in the ads forum offering a GlobalSign OrganizationalSSL cert for $100yr. Does this seem like a good deal? There isnt a lot of feedback about GlobalSign on the net.

I Need A Windows VPS Suggestions

Nov 27, 2007

Hi, I am looking for a windows VPS provider. Ideally with servers in the USA. I am currently TRYING to register with, but until now I have been unsuccessful. I registered 9 days ago, and they have not yet been able to provision it yet at cheapvps. Every time I send a message asking about my server I get a reply from Paul or Russ with a one-liner like "I'll have someone look at it", "I've asked them to fix it" "It takes 24 hours" "etc", always one lines, not a single explanation.

I will give them some more time, cause honestly I hope they get to set up the server and give me the great service I have read so many people in this forum rave about, but right now I am starting to look for alternatives just in case cheapvps cannot handle my request (a standard config from the options they offer). As I said hopefully its just a perfect storm once in a lifetime type of situation which I unluckily had to go through....but I have not received any explanations yet...just one liners.

Leaving 1and1 Need Suggestions

Oct 9, 2008

My employer has decided to let me move thier sites to a new hosting company. I can finally get rid of 1and1.

I have just over 50 domains with about 25 that had sites. I was paying $30 a month for hosting on a shared Linux server for these sites. The sites are small and can be put on another shared plan.

One thing I do need is PHP to MS SQL. 1and1 did not support MS SQL from PHP. I also would like to pay no more than what I was paying. The only good thing I can say is that I have had 100% uptime with 1and1.

Email Server Suggestions?

Dec 4, 2008

I have a community web site with high traffic. The site is similar to facebook, meaning we send a notification for every action (new messages, poke, ....).

I was wondering what solution would you suggest for mail server? For now I have a powerful server with postfix that sends around 12000 emails per day (using the php mail function at every action).

Is there a better solution? Should i get another server and relay to 2 servers?

Is there any tools to check if the server is able to handle all emails or if I need another server.

1and1 Another Disgusted Customer - Suggestions?

Jun 4, 2008

The server was going down every week or so since Christmas when I bought it. I re-imaged it, still going down. 3 times in fact this week. The logs say nothing out of the ordinary. I'm sure it just has to be hardware fault, but thier customer support takes ages to answer, are useless, pass you around drom department to department, and are not allowed to make outgoing calls! I'm halfway through a 12 month contract I bet it even says the uptime is not guarenteed as it's my root server....

Anyway, can anyone recommend (yes I've googled but want something specific) a good company with a good record that do plesk, because I've got used to it! Or any suggestions how to ditch 1and1 or get them to change the actual server?

Lunarpages And Hostgator Reviews, Suggestions?

Sep 2, 2008

We have several different websites, and trying to spread them out to different datacenters and companies to find a good fit (after a fire at one datacenter had us down for days).

We first had HostGator (semi-dedicated account when they had those) and our main problem initially was them shutting the site down when it used too many resources and them putting up a contact billing message for our customers at the peak of an email campaign that sparked the high resource usage. After that heated frustration, we got on a dedicated account with them and haven't really had any/many problems since. So can't complain too much there other than wishing we got the dedicated first and for them to have used a more diplomatic way of transferring us to a higher account level when needed than the message most customers saw during the transition.

When The Planet had that fire that knocked servers down for days, we were effected with our HostGator server. Not that it's to be expected again, but wanted to get a different dedicated server for our other sites to have some options in case of disaster and having multiple servers/companies to move things around if needed.

So we then got a dedicated server with Lunarpages. I was not unhappy with their customer support response as they've been fairly prompt IMO (at least compared to some other comments I've read around since) but we seem to have never-ending troubles at first with SSL installation (self-install and then them installing) and then general domain DNS, resolving and configuration problems. We call them literally every day as it goes down every day (server up but site not resolving) and they get it back up and then it goes down again for whatever reasons yet to be determined apparently. Not sure if different techs doing something different each time, or server being hacked, or what. It's running essentially the same stuff I believe that's working on the other dedicated server but with different graphics mostly.

So the inability to get that figured out has us searching for a new dedicated server. Otherwise, I think we'd be happy there if it just stayed working. Here's what we have/require:

- Multiple domains each with own SSL certificate.

- php and mysql needed with highly-customized oscommerce scripts running on each domain that use a lot of queries and resources.

- cpanel or something similar preferred for admin.

- About 1000 visitors on each domain per day.

- Need some tech support for resolving problems when they come up or would just buy/manage server ourselves.

- Budgeted for a step above the low-end dedicated server level for many companies, but not over $300 a month looking at the market.

We are looking at a couple different hosting companies but haven't used any of them previously. Would still like to try another company for the other server before putting both on HostGator but having bad luck so far. We are considering:

- InMotion (advanced dedicated server account). I've communicated with sales/support and seem incredibly responsive as all comments I've read, but not a ton out there on them.

- Fused Network

- SteadFast Networks

- Gigenet

- LiquidWeb

Probably in that order from initial research, but hard to know what to believe sometimes. Sometimes you have to just find out for yourself, but hoping for suggestions in regards to the best bet to try next for our situation. Already have read some helpful information from others about some of the hosts previously here, but sometimes things change over time (as it seems like with Lunarpages then and now). Hopefully our experiences with HostGator (both positive and negative) and Lunarpages helps others out too.

Suggestions For Virtual Private Server (VPS)

May 22, 2007

I am "simply" looking to run a Joomla! community site with an estimated 250 - 500 and then eventually up to 1,000 users onine at one time. The main attraction will be the user forums and profiles. I don't plan on having any videos or anything like that, but I will install a mambot that will integrate Google Video, etc.

I am trying to pick a VPS provider and from what I have read so far, I have kind of narrowed it down to a few places:

From reading alot so far, I would imagine I would need at least 256-512MB of RAM. Plesk sounds like a good control panel since I won't be reselling any of the space. Webmin sounds too hands on, and I know a little bit, but not a lot. The backup option that comes with sounds tempting, but VPSLink has attractive price points. also gives you 1TB of bandwidth, a very attractive option.

I am "simply" looking to run a Joomla! community site with an estimated 250 -
As long as the site can run MySQL, I am happy. Joomla!, statistics software (any suggestions) and WordPress and that is about it as far as applications.

Any suggestions on what plans or who I should go with? My budget is about $t50 a month.

Single Server Hardware ... What Are Your Suggestions?

Sep 8, 2008

Based on todays equipement I know a person can spend Thousands on a good server, I'm looking to build my own and just want some advice on which way to go.

I'm thinking of just building the server pc in one case and the hard drive setup will be in a seperate case with the following:

3ware 9690SA-8E controller
Mass-Storage 8x by A-Tech Fabrication for a case
8 - SATA2 SEAGATE 1TB (7200rpm) 32MB on the controller as RAID

Can anyone give advice on what would be a good setup if you were running 1 single server for local businesses. I don't want to hear just pay for a provider as I've heard that one before now I'm looking to know what hardware setup you would run I like to play and learn. Even though sometimes the headache playing isn't as much fun as we sometimes may have hoped.

What are m/b and processor options for running a server?

What is min. amount of ram a person should run using linux and cpanel?

Should linux be on a max. amount of space for root and server files on a seperate mnt?

What connection up/down would be min. for usage of about 5gig/month?

Memory Issues On JaguarPC VPS. Suggestions? Recommend A Virtual Private Server (VPS)

Jun 17, 2008

I recently moved my site from a shared hosting plan at $5 a month to a VPS at JaguarPC. I took advantage of one of the offers here at Web Host Talk. My setup has cPanel with 320MB of RAM. I have another site running the same software (Joomla, vBulletin) with cPanel and only 256MB of RAM at KnownHost.

I've had zero problems with Knownhost and the site is snappy. The site hosted at JaguarPC continues to have all kinds of problems. Running a number of sites, I don't always get to check in on my sites unless I know of a problem. I'm sorry I didn't pay more attention to this site, because it was having all types of PHP memory issues. When I first contacted JaguarPC, they said they boosted the memory in Apache. The issues remained, so I contacted them again. They recommended more RAM. Now, I checked on my KnownHost site and that's running on 256MB. I figured that maybe JaguarPC didn't allocate enough RAM when they set up the VPS. They confirmed 320MB. Not wanting to change hosts, I asked them to poke around a bit more, considering what I know about KnownHost and my success there.

I received this response:
have checked and you are running named service on your server. named caches dns data and this can also consume a lot of memory, sometimes over a 100 MB may be consumed by this service.

In addition to cPanel and named which are most memory consuming applications running on your server, there are other applications like apache web server and the php scripts running on the server also consume some memory.

It is highly recommended that you upgrade the RAM on your VPS significantly to avoid such problems which may cause disruption of service. You can find a list of RAM and other VPS addons in the following link.

Instead of helping me resolve the problem, they simply keep asking me to get more RAM.

For SEO purposes, I like to keep my sites on different hosts. Can anyone recommend a VPS?

I was certainly unaware that "named service" had such an impact on my VPS. If that's the case, is there any harm in not having this? SEO or otherwise?

Which SSL Certificate

I want to use SSL on my website.


I don't really get the differences (and it seems all companies offering SSL offer different types of certificates.. don't even know where they overlap)

Can someone recommend where I could get an SSL certificate and why I should choose between a $15/year one and $100+/year?

New SSL Certificate

Aug 26, 2007

I am running a site that currently has a Geotrust SSL cert installed (Plesk 7.5.3). That certificate is about to expire and I am going with one from a new vendor. My question is, do I need to generate a new CSR before requesting the new certificate or do I use the CSR from the current one and just upload the new certificate file (overwriting the current one) when I get it?

Ssl Certificate, Sub-domain

Sep 8, 2009

i just got this ssl certificate but i have some doubts how exactly should i set up the whole magic. i created the which suppose to be the sub-domain for the login page which means when user decide to sign up/login to immediately transfer to the ssl state(sample: see and then their https login page). so, far the home page which is it doesn't need to be covered by the ssl. so, i was just wondering how do i play the game? i know it's kinda tricky and the key is somewhere in the sub-domain name(cP set up), .htaccess and/or index.php files but not very clear to me.

How To Choose SSL Certificate

Jul 16, 2009

I am now in process of choosing ssl certificate from certificate authority for one of the sites I administer and I got confused.

I visited numerous sites offering certs and I concluded:

- I don't need EV certificate

- 128 bit certificates can vary in price at different providers from $25 to $100 and higher

- some sites are offering 128 bit at lower price and 256 or 515 bit certs at higher prices

I don't understand why are some certs so expensive? Doesn't 128 bit cert form any provider at any price provide the same level of security?

I thought 128 bit encryption is unbreakable. Why do someone buys 256 or 512 bit cert at higher price?

Some of those more expensive certs are offering "higher level of security", warranties... Is that only marketing or there is some real value behind additional features?
