I have never understand this? Honestly, what is the point if they all point to one web server? I mean if the web server fails it doesnt do any good if you have 10 DNS servers. The only time it makes sense to me to run multiple DNS servers is if your DNS server is a piece of junk, and always goes down, which honestly doesnt happen that much.
Whats ur take on Wired Tree folks, shall i jump the ship and provide them with utter bunny mayhem (cause i am known to be intolerably insane when my server is down). How is their overall support, and network and performance ? Anyone current got "Server" from them who would like to throw some light on their performance and services ?
I run a large community site, and i was wondering what the max amount of images I should have in an image folder? I'm looking to upgrade to an image only server and setup subdomain folders to split up the files. right now i have about 200k+ image files in just the public image folder... thats not counting the thumbnail folder, private folders etc...
what people think about jaguarpc I haven't been there too long yet I find the servers some what slow... or I should say VPS's there customer service is good yet I found knownhost to be better performance wise.. I just want to know what others think
We are in the process building a new colocation facility and I wanted to take some input from everyone here. We have most of the infrastructure planning and layout done but were still early on in the construction phase so now is the last chance to get some input. I have two main questions I wanted to ask.
1)When your looking for a colocation facility what things are most important to you?
2)Have you ever wished that datacenters offered something outside the normal things that most providers do.
I want to run .asp pages on a windows server where i am currently running .HTML files (STATIC without any script or database). I want convert those .html pages to .asp (without any scripts).
So WHAT DO YOU THINK, that .html (static) should work exactly same like .asp (Static) ? Suppose .html pages DO NOT CREATE any issue with IIS load , so using same (basic html code) in .asp would create any issue with APPLICATION POOL (IIS)?
My ISP here in the UK does not provide static ip addresses. I'd like to be able to set my server to only accept root access attempts from a set IP.
I am aware of how to set this up on my server, but not on my own machine.
I'd appreciate if anyone recommend the best service to use when seeking a static IP address and also point me in the right direction of documentation that explains how to utilise this IP (connect through it so when connecting to my server it sees the static IP and not my dynamic ISP IP).
I've had a search on WHT and Google but most of the documentation I've encountered is for people who want to run a web server from their home machine and so want a static IP for incoming connections.
i have a domain hosted at eNom which i would like to point to my FTP server which is running on my box at home. I have a static IP, and BulletProof FTP server installed. Now im just unclear how i can have www.mydomain.com point to 126.96.36.199:21.
I'm using XEN to setup my VPS. The installation have no problem for the first two server. On the 3rd server, I install using DHCP IP and it's ok.The problem is when I change the DHCP IP to static IP .
Using Centos 5.2, I'm using vi to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and restart the network service network restart, the IP change, but outside or other static IP VPS network can't ping to this server.
I've tried to change the /etc/xen/the-host-config to include the IP . the results is still the same. Is there some script or way I can use to bridge this new 3rd server to the Xen host ant other network?
I've been running website for several years, however, there's one thing that I've never quite figured, most likely because I haven't gone over to dedicated/vps yet.
How much memory would a static 10kb HTML use or for that matter a PHP page (static)?
I know it's quite a broad question, but I'm asking this as I might start a project and this one page may receive many hits. Oh and, would the memory usage go up if I have embedded objects from an outside source (e.g. embedded Youtube videos)?
my current servers are part of this mess with Alphared: [url]
what I'm looking for:
static content main server: average cpu, average ram 15-20gb data tops, but could use a fast drive need about 6tb/m of higher quality bandwidth 2 machine cluster for forums
only thing on this will be vBulletin forums. current database is about 6gb (~7 million posts) averaging about 800 members active per 15 mins this isn't for a business, so it all comes out of my pocket. however, after the $#@! with Alphared I do recognize the importance of a good host and I am willing to put money toward that as needed. however, my goal is in the $600-$800/m range for everything. is that price range doable? if not, what is a reasonable price for what I'm asking? and can anyone recommend reliable hosts (especially one that can correctly setup the cluster for the forums).
