I have recently had number of websites that link directly to images from my website. This is not hotlinking, it is direct server request. As an example: on the linking website there is image gallery script with thumbnails and when the visitor clicks on the thumb it calls the image from my website.
I block their IP-s in .htaccess, but it is not the best way to stop them since IP change. Is there any way, similar to anti-hotlinking, to deny such direct access to my images by domain name i.e. to allow only from my website and deny from all others. Or something else that could work in my case with .htaccess.
I have been a solid cPanel / WHM user for the past 2 years, we have now since downsized our hosting requirements and also wanted to cut our panel costs and so we moved to PLESK 12 Web Edition.The server is on a trial license and has been working fine with no problems for the past 2 weeks. Today all of a sudden none of the websites are accessible, although I can ping all IP's on server and login via SSH.I cannot access any websites or hosting control panel, I have disabled IP tables as this was the cause of a problem last time.
Why this happened was there an update at around 5AM this morning which could have caused this?I have restarted the server, I can successfully ping / resolve address from SSH.
I want to save the access logs of our websites on an external server. If I do this now with the default setup, the gets overwritten every day. The desired file name format whould be: websitedomain-tld-access-2014-10-24.log
How can I tell Plesk to do this and how can I make sure the statistics keep working?
Every now and then I'll run into a website that has a message that says it was hacked by a certain hacker. How exactly do this? Do they hack into the actual server or do they somehow get a hold of the website owners FTP info?
I have three domains that I want to host myself on my own computer. Two are temporary sites that I only put up on Memorial Day weekend for the Detroit Electronic Music Festival or Movement 09 to direct people to my after parties and the other site is a two page bio site for myself. I have a very tight budget this year and I can't afford to pay for web hosting all year round when these are only temporary sites even though I own the domain names all year round. I do know some of the promoters for the festival do the hosting themselves.
This is a little wierd, I am not able to see any of my websites on my home network, but from anywhere else it seems too load just fine. Even when i go through a proxy site they load. I'm still able to get to WHM and cPanel from my home but the websites themself do not load.
this started happing yesturday and after a few hours it seemed to work again on its own.
i have a reseller account with canaca.com the safe mode &security mode are on! and everythings was great! till those hackers bastards appeared! they somehow could upload a php shell files to my websites! and then they deleted everythings in 4 of my websites! i contact my tech support and they restored my websites and i checked that there is no shell files! next day,my websites hacked again and there was i php shell files in them! i deleted those god damn files and i deleted the page that the hackers put in my websites! you security is zero,and we will hacked the entire server.., but after 3 hours the pages returned and the shell files are there! i dont belive that! the unbelivable this is that when i want to run those php shell files the safe mode stoped them doing anythings! so how can those bastards do what they do?how can they ulpload the files in the first place? is there any soultions to this problem! cause i restored my websites about 3 times now and everyting i restore it they hacked it again and again!
i currently have a reseller server in the states but ive seen for the money im paying (and im not using the space actually) i can get a VPS server here in the UK which i can combine for webhosting and other development projects. I am after a UK based VPS for the following requirements:
Host 15 websites
Access the box remotely and dial-in to the box which needs to be configured as a VPN server (the box will act as a router, i presume masquerading on eth0 for the connected vpn clients to go out through the server and onto the net).
Traffic will not be too high, maybe around 75GB per month.
Around 3-4 websites run forums on (small size phpbb) and the other sites are again small and mostly used for email.
I will need full root access and maximum configurability.
Preferably Suse 10 as i have worked with that before but i am open to suggestions on other OS. I need to configure the pppd service and easier this is via the OS the less time i have to dig in scripts and terminal! I wouldnt mind windows but on a VPS this will be a resource drain so i am happy to get more performance from the box by sticking with smaller footprint of linux.
Plesk for website management, or cpanel, i dont mind either way.
I dont however know how much CPU/RAM i will need, what is a sensible amount? I dont think my requirements are too strenuous, what would be a good sensible amount of RAM to select to allow me to host say 50 web sites in future?
I have heard good things on the forums for the following:
a2b2.com cheapvps.co.uk 1and1.co.uk
I know you get what you pay for so i do need something reliable, but if people say the service from the above sellers is good i will go for them as the price is fantastic. It would be great to hear of other recommendations also.
I used to check new websites before dns propagation by adding an entry to windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file and used to work perfectly. But now days I think IE7 and Firefox 2 is bypassing the hosts file and the method is not working.
any alternative method to check the website before dns propagation?
I currently have a problem with my websites email going to spam. Most of the mail my website sends out, responses to registration, lost passwords etc...gets sent to spam. I have never used this site to send mass email or newsletters. I was thinking of getting an external hosted email solution, but wanted to know what you thought is the best solution for this and what you use to send out emails from your site.
I remember using a few years ago a site where you could plugin a domain name and a report will run showing if the site was vieable or accessible from all different parts of the worls, I forgot the URL does anyone know abou something like this?
