HostJury Deleted Legit Reviews

Dec 15, 2008

I wanted to post about a site I'm very concerned and frustrated with, HostJury.

It's simple. The other day, one of our web hosting customers posted our HostJury URL in our customer forums. Since then, a few of our customers saw followed the link and decided to submit reviews about us, which was very pleasing.

Friday night, I saw we had our first 4 reviews. Suddenly yesterday (Saturday) afternoon I checked on the page, and saw all of them had been deleted.

But I looked up the reviewers. They were all posted by legit customers of ours which I was able to find in our customer database, so the reviews are definitely legit.

I am especially frustrated as those 4 had rated us very high, so these are important reviews that have been removed by HostJury.

I don't understand what's going on here...

o Legit reviews
o We didn't ask them to review us, they did it on their own
o We didn't bribe our reviewers
o We didn't reward our reviewers

So what's the problem, HostJury? These kind of instances are interfering with honesty in the hosting industry.

APF Blocking Legit Users

Aug 21, 2007

This is just a notice: one of the staff of a large site I run was no longer able to log into the site. As it turns out his IP was being blocked by APF.

The reason for his IP being blocked was that it ended in 255 (x.x.x.255). Any such addresses are blocked by the PKT_SANITY_STUFFED option, which is turned on by default in recent versions of APF. When restarting APF this option shows up as {pkt_sanity} deny all to/from and can be seen under "OUT_SANITY" when doing "apf --list".

As you notice the problem is that some ISPs are are assigning supposedly "bad" IPs ending in 255 to users. And I'm not the only one hitting this problem either: [url]

If you are also using (a recent version of) APF, you might want to turn this option OFF.

In the meanwhile, if anyone is so enlighted... why was this option in APF in the first place? What so bad about IPs ending on 255? The APF docs say they're bad broadcast addresses, so why are ISP assigning them anyway? Who is at fault: APF or ISPs?

Legit Backup Script

Jan 10, 2007

I got this from 1and1 and have no confidence in them. I want to be sure my site is backed up (I will be using bq and whoever the new host is to back it up also) I have done these commands and it "backs up" and then I FTP the backup to my computer but I want to be sure there is actually information in that backup. Does this sound legit?

Open Putty
at command, type

mysqldump --opt -Q -h localhost -databaseusername -p databasename >sitename.backup.sql
hit enter
it goes to next line and is done
then FTP to my computer and I have a backup.

So first, does it sound legit? Second, what do I DO with it should my site go down. Do I just FTP it back to the server?

Allowing Legit Traffic Permanently (CSF Iptables)

Oct 29, 2007

My server runs on CSF.

Very often the firewall automatically ban some of my customers IP who has fix IP to access to their webmail and website, because they have over 100 staffs, maybe that is why the IP was banned automatically for having too many connections to the server.

Everytime I unban the IP, it keeps being banned again. I have to stop / restart iptables to flush it.

How can I allow the IP permanently?

Apache :: Seemingly Legit Requests Generating 400 Bad Request Errors

Feb 8, 2015

So I've got a problem where a small percentage of incoming requests are resulting in "400 bad request" errors and I could really use some input. At first I thought they were just caused by malicious spiders, scrapers, etc. but they seem to be legitimate requests.

I'm running Apache 2.2.15 and mod_perl2.

The first thing I did was turn on mod_logio and interestingly enough, for every request where this happens the request headers are between 8000-9000 bytes, whereas with most requests it's under 1000. Hmm.

There are a lot of cookies being set, and it's happening across all browsers and operating systems, so I assumed it had to be related to bad or "corrupted" cookies somehow - but it's not.

I added "%{Cookie}i" to my LogFormat directive hoping that would provide some clues, but as it turns out half the time the 400 error is returned the client doesn't even have a cookie. Darn.

Next I fired up mod_log_forensic hoping to be able to see ALL the request headers, but as luck would have it nothing is logged when it happens. I guess Apache is returning the 400 error before the forensic module gets to do its logging?

By the way, when this happens I see this in the error log:

request failed: error reading the headers

To me this says Apache doesn't like something about the raw incoming request, rather than a problem with our rewriting, etc. Or am I misunderstanding the error?

I'm at a loss where to go from here. Is there some other way that I can easily see all the request headers? I feel like that's the only thing that will possibly provide a clue as to what's going on.

Ovh.co.uk Reviews

Nov 18, 2008

i found a nice ovh server which is a quad core with 8 gb of ram on a 1 GBps port. I saw a few reviews and i heard people say that they will lower your speed or something. What i need to host is a game server which uses a lot of upload. At least 10 mbps at MOST excluding users that have to download a 5 mb file. Perhaps if i tested my upload on speedtest.net if i had a ovh server that is on a 1 gbps port. What would the upload be?

Midphase Reviews?

Jun 13, 2006

Anyone here used Midphase? Over at WHT you can find as many negatives as positives for almost anyone you chose. Anyone at Sitepoint used them? I'm very cautious about switching and have checked into several web hosts. I would stick with the one I have now, but server load spikes seem to come at the worst times and stay around for hours.

ASmallOrange.com - Reviews

Nov 6, 2009

I'm with ASmallOrange ( ASO - www.asmallorange.com ) already for more than one year. I have to say I have been very happy with the quality and service I have received.

Server is very reliable. Yes, I encountered some issue months ago, because some DNS attack and password issue on ASO's staff, but they handle the situation very good and they was honest about it.

Their support is fantastic. Actually, I seldom contact support since everything is okay, but when I did, their reply is fast and prompt.

They have good and active community forum.

Their price is reasonable. Yes, ASO do not offer "unlimited" but their prices compared to quality is okay.

Since it is required, my site with ASO : www.midave.com

Any Reviews On Vpsrush

Apr 19, 2009

any reviews on vpsrush?

I know they have started in just 2009, still there could be users who would like to share their review,

was lookin their plans for one of my friend, their plans look good

may be even impressive but after the mess around with the newly dooming/scam hosts such as hostchum, sarora, resellerways, it makes me think more than twice before selecting an host

See, I don't wish to raise up a discussion on the hosts again, its just my way of lookin at those recent dumb hosts which let lots of users in pain, including one of my dear friend.

I know its good to think twice, but it has made me lose faith really badly in the hosting industry thanks to the kiddies and scam hosts, to gain confidence back in the hosts might be a real tough buy

I know serving, wiredtree are still around but I am referring to the low-budget hosts..

Kerbosys Reviews

Aug 6, 2009

Since moved to Seattle area 2 years ago, I searched for a Supermicro-server-built vendor closed to Seattle. I found some, but their pricing seem expensive. Some others are very slow in response, even from other WHT users, they seem good. Recently, contacted Scott Lee at Kerbo System, and I believe I have found a good one.

As usual, I sent a lot of pre-sales questions. Scott is very nice, to answer all questions with details. He shows a good experience in server hardware building. Then, I decided to order a new dual Nehalem system with them. Transaction went smoothly, and I have server on time. He even took some photos of servers for me, before shipping out, so I can show to customers. He also noted down for me all series numbers of all parts in server, so I can keep track, in case something wrong.

At first, I am not very impressed with their home page, but please don't let you down. Drop Scott an email with your requirements, or what you are going to do with server, he will reply with his advice, what he's thinking the best in your case. A good service, especially for business likes ours, not in the US.

So, a short reviews about Scott Lee and Kerbo System. I would highly recommend them to anyone needs Supermicro servers in the West coast.

Scott, thanks for a good service. We are looking for a long term business relation.
