Good Experience With Tiny-Sites

Oct 30, 2008

I will start by stressing that I have only been with them for 2 months. I will be back throughout my time with them to drop more information.

I started with Tiny-Sites when they were first beginning business and got a pretty good hosting deal. 250 mb of storage and 5 gb (4.88 actual) bandwith and a domain for what amounted to $12 and some odd change after discount. They answered several questions up-front, in addition to agreeing to instal an SSL for me, as well as switching me from the free domain to one I had already purchased, setting the free domain as a redirect.

The DirectAdmin control panel is simple, but powerful. Using the installatron I was able to easily install Wordpress. It did take me a while to discover the magic of what an FTP normally does, otherwise I might never have gotten ComicPress properly installed.

I have had one instance of downtime in the two months. I placed a support ticket and was answered within 27 minutes. I'm not sure where they are located, but around my area (Nebraska), it was 8 o'clock in the evening and definitely after hours. The problem was related to another user uploading a BOT. They maintain a backup and had us back online within an hour.

When they upgraded to better plans with unlimited databases and email accounts, I requested information or billing to upgrade to those from a 5 limit plan and was upgraded at no fee, which I certainly appreciated.

I know it is still early and I am not making much use of resources yet, but I am extremely pleased thus far and would recommend them to others.

Tiny Vps Wtb

Oct 15, 2009

After my bitter and nasty taste with vaserve, I am looking for a VPS, with:

-OS: Centos


-BW : 50 Gb of should cut it.

-Location? any ( if possible far away from NYC as Ive already use one from there which are very nice so far but would avoid any type of downtime due to any type of local problems)

-Virtualization: Openvz

-Price: 3 bucks (paying a whole year upfront).

The one I currently have, has more than the described above ( at an under 3 bucks price, so I am not being demanding):

5GB Space 256MB RAM 500GB Transfer 1 IP Addresses for under 3 bucks

Take into account that I never promoted any company. Ive been dragging the offer section and I cant see other than my current provider that seems to cut it with my requirements.

Brand new companies wont be considered. I am not looking for the super traditional we all know but not the newbies either.

Good Experience With Dathorn

Dec 24, 2008

I wanted to share that I've had a good experience with Dathorn for a number of years.

Fast support ever experienced (and rarely needed thankfully).

Recently our local connectivity got upgraded to 20/20 (fios). Dathorn gets me near full speed all the time, which I can't say about another host I also use (other servers seem to be in the 8-10 meg range).

While the packages don't include huge amounts of space as the oversellers, if you need 6-8 gig of space, you should be very happy with their offerings. Cpanel, Fantastico,

Good Experience With

Nov 25, 2007

i open this thread first to thank futurehosting for all the effort and the help that I receive always.

Sincerely I had problems at first with the high load of the server but has been another VPS on the same node and not mine, but now all itīs ok and work very fast and with all the services updated and optimized.

I got upgrade, credit and many great service offered and this is not the only reason that left me to stay with them a long time.

The important thing for me is the support(maybe not fast like others)but sure you get a profesional solution and a friendly conversation ,no the fast and copied reply and this make you to feel like inside one family.

Just wanted to drop a line and let everybody know that I had a good experience with's Xen-Based FreeBSD VPS.

Setup time came in right at 3 hours (order was at 4pm MST), and everything works exactly as expected. We ordered one as a test for turning up additional off-site monitoring for our datacenter.

Thought I'd just drop some praise where it's due in case someone else wants some BSD hosting.

Cpu Usage... Is It The Same As Cpu Cycles- And Any Good Webhost Monitoring Sites

Oct 29, 2009

I'm trying to write an article about webhosting. I've completed most of the article but there are some points I still can't figure out.

a) I'm actually confused about this: is limiting of cpu usage the same as limiting cpu cycles or even cpu throttling? I see these terms mentioned everywhere but they're all quite confusing.

b) And also, where can I find good sites for tracking webhost uptime and with some comprehensive data? I've only found this comprehensive site so far but have failed to find any others: [url]

And any other sites I found have been mediocre.

Good Experiences Hosting Gallery2 Photo Sites

Apr 15, 2008

If you have current experience with hosting Gallery2 photo sites, please give us your opinion on hosts.

Gallery2 is PHP and MySQL based.

I am looking at a few customers (schools, sports groups) who would eventually have 2 to 5 GB of photos, but fairly light hits (Students, Parents, Friends). This would not be a NFL site! But responsiveness is relatively important.

Medium-cost (Say up to $15/M) shared hosting probably? Looking at maybe Hostgator, HostMonster, A1WebHosting. Your experiences/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

My current site on (!PowWeb) is passable, but I want these sites ElseWhere...

Is Google Sites A Good Place To Start Experimenting For A Newbie?

Mar 22, 2009

Looking to quickly practice with and master my HTML/CSS skills after reading Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way Using HTML & CSS. At the end of the book he mentions site hosting, which I know Google does for free through "Sites".

That said, Sites looks to be designed for the non-web designer, for the average Joe looking to get his own website. So I'm wondering if people who have used it know if it supports an external CSS or if I can upload various image files. I figure that it is probably best that I don't use shortcuts in the initial learning phase.

I don't have a particular site idea in mind, just looking to play around with things and try them out.

List Of Good Hosters With Good TELEPHONE Tech Support

May 6, 2008

I'd like to start an ongoing thread here listing the 'Good Hosters with Good TELEPHONE tech support'. In other words, out of the 1,000s of host companies, this may cut it down to less than a dozen.

( And for all you Hosters out there who really want your company to grow, and want to know how, - it's easy: just read here.)

Good telephone support is the #1 ultimate requirement, because:

-It's a lot faster and easier for both the user and the host company, because you can state and answer all questions and clarifications on the spot, you don't need to continually pass new emails with new questions and clarifications, back and forth for days on end, until the issue is solved. It saves tech time and user's time. And saves a lot of nerves.

- It's the best way to sort the good guys from the bad. A bad company isn't going to bother to answer the phone, - or will make you wait way too long, - because they are likely getting endless complaints. The good guys are always ready to answer the phones, with a friendly voice, - because they really WANT to please the customer.

- If a company can't be bothered to pick up the phone, we can't be bothered to even consider them. They're a joke, and so won't be listed here on this thread. (So, before adding or listing any Hosters here, please verfify that they do have Good, quick, friendly, telephone support,; ideally 24/7, but 9am to 10pm might be acceptable, if it was supplemented by some emergency contact.

- Hoster ALSO needs good EMAIL support (and preferably, Chat online, extended hour availability). (I spend a lot of time overseas). It sems all emails should get a non-automated response within about an hour, - and then support should jump on fixing any problem.

I only need support a few times a year. To answer some questions, or fix a problem, or do an install. That's lesss than 1 hour total, so any company paying maybe $18/hour tech support should be able to handle this. It IS reasonable to charge a custm for extended calls, beyond say, 90minutes a year, IF you don't count the 80%? Of times an issue is the Hoster;s fault of stmg gone wrong, and don't count the 'hold' times.

- Uptime
- site Speeds
- Monthly plans, no contract (Only a dishonest host will try to force you into a contract, where they can then ignore you.)
- Reasonable price. (? Maybe $12 to $18/month for a basic business site. We don't need massive bandwitdths, - we all know that's an overselling scam, and can't ever be delivered.)
- a good upgrade plan of bigger options. Maybe even VPS.
- Dedicated IP, and availbility of SSL
-PHP 5, mysql, phpMyAdmin, etc
- cPanel ( Some Hosts are using problematic panels, like Hsphere, which are slow to load, slow in operation, require many more clicks, have too many options, spread apart on many separate pages. Time is money, and this really slows down the ability of a small business to manage his own site in effective time. For example, one WHT user wrote somewhere: "I don't feel that HSphere's interface is nice at all, although I have worked with cPanel and DA all my life... I just found it to include un-necessary features or split features up in to different hard to find pages, such as backups - mysql backups you had to find on a completely different page than file backups, and then there were options to have it in the home directory or server-end backup, in which then you had to wait a good 10 minutes before it was ready. cPanel, just hit backup and hit download and instantly it does everything you need...".

I have used several hosters. Currently on and Godad, which have phone support, and mediocre service.

My LIST So Far:
- Liquidweb: a very impressive company with good, 24 hour support. But to get dedicated IP, you need to go with their $25/month plan. Yikes!
- A very small company. My call was returned, and the owner chatted with me for an hour on the phone! Plans have small bandwidth, but promises No overselling, and personalized attention. Extra $5 for dedi IP. He specializes in Small business sites, and small eCommerce sites. He has only 250 accounts, on 3 servers. He rents servers from the Equinox data center of Chicago. Seems exceptionaly honest.
- MegaHosters. Excellent phone support and WHT reviews. But company was taken over by another company, and so may well go downhill in future. Another problem: uses Hsphere.
- Steadfast. Has a good rep on WHT, and seems impressive. Tech answered the phone immediately, but they say they prefer emails. Sales phone has limited hours. Good price on $20 SSL. But, uses Hshhere.
- JodoHost 24 hour phone. But, uses Hsphere. An Indian company with office in Florida, and good rep. I like the idea of outsourcing phone support, if it makes it more available and affordable. But, the accent on the phone was very hard for me to understand, so maybe this might not work.....
- Hostgator. Yes, it's a big overseller, but seems to get good reviews/results anyway, and good phone support.
- ? ThePrimeHost ?? Mostly good WHT reviews; some dissenters. Site says 24hour phone, but when I called on several nights, no one ever answered...
- Can anyone add to this list? Please list only hosts that meet the above minimum requirements of phone support, etc. Especially useful is hosters you've tried.
- Avoid Arvixe. I had a horrid experience with them, here: [WHT forum]:/showthread.php?p=5097822#post5097822
- Avoid WebHostingBuzz. This company never returned my phone msessage inquiries.

Some Sites Load Slow, Some Sites Load Fine, Server Load Is Fine

Aug 12, 2008

I'm having the oddest issue. For some reason, some of the websites on my server load fine, and some take a really long time to load (2 minutes).

Now, the server load is fine, and the size of the sites aren't the issue either. I've restarted Apache and a couple more services, and still the same sites seem to load very slow.

What could be causing this since it's only effecting certain websites?

How Many Sites Are Too Many

May 18, 2009

I have a pretty beefy VPS (1 Gb RAM, equal share Intel xeon Quad core processor), but I have no idea how many other VPS's are sharing that processor.

Is there any way to know that? I'm guessing the hosting company (Future Host - very happy with them btw) isn't going to tell me.

Right now my stats are pretty low, but how many individual cPanel accounts (1 site each) before it starts to bog down? I know it depends largely on the traffic, but is 20-30 low-volume sites a lot for a VPS with 1Gb ram?

Can I Have 2 Different NS's For Different Sites On My VPS

Aug 14, 2007

I have a few personal sites one server and my business sites on another. I was thinking of moving the personal ones to my business VPS (to save money) but I don't want someone to be able to do a NS or IP search on one group and find the others or see that they're related in any way. (I had a weird experience with a business contact contacting me via a personal site that he found by a NS search. That's why they're on another server now.)

Is is possible to add a second NS (another domain) on separate IPs to handle the personal sites, and my current NS handle the biz sites? Or should I just keep them on two different servers?

I thought maybe I could make the personal sites into their own reseller account and do a new NS that way, but if there's an easier way I'd rather do that.

I know a guy who has about 10 domains on the same IP and each of the domains uses its domain name as its own NS. I think the term he used was NS aliasing. I think it was all done by changing the DNS stuff in WHM. I tried to do what he said but it didn't work for me. Also I'm not sure how to handle the registrar part. They want two separate IPs for the NS, but he's using only one.

Multiple Sites

Feb 22, 2009

i currently have 2 webhosting providers but want to consolidate to one acct at one host with a bit better load times...

1. JaguarPc - i have two accts with them

a. i have a shared acct with them currently - i believe its called the gigadeal (something like $10 a month). i have been with them since 2000, pretty decent host not too much downtime. support is "ok" when needed.
currently i have 3 smallish websites hosted on this one acct, they dont get a lot of traffic. two of them are using wordpress one is just a static html site.
i did a look up and found the server has about 130 sites hosetd on it. so not too bad in regards to overselling. however my big problem is the site takes about 900-1500ms to generate a page. this seems to be pretty often. again the sites dont really draw that much traffic. so thats not the problem here.

b. i also have one of their freedom vps accts with upgraded ram and bandwidth. i only have one site hosted on it. this site used to get about 500K+ unique visitors a month. at its peak we were serving around 1tb bandwidth a month... i know we ran the vps hard but considering we wanted to stay under $50 it worked well. there was of course some downtime due to the massive traffic - [we serve up a popular flash cartoon website].

2. Hostgator - babygator plan
this host only serves up one wordpress site - the site isnt very well known yet, but the site is growing each month. the funny thing is that when i looked up this server there was about 830 websites hosted on it - obviously oversold and crowded. support really sucks here imho. however, the page load time is anywhere between 250ms to 500ms a lot faster than JaguarPcs. which is crazy since jag has much less sites on the server...
im looking to basically consolidate the websites that are on both shared plans. my original thought was to keep them all on my shared hosting acct at jaguarpc (the one with the 3 sites). obviously i cannot add them to the vps since its pretty active. also the vps is business and the other sites are all personal. and i dont want them to mix so to speak.

i am currently spending about $20 a month between the two shared host plans. im looking for some recommendations as to where to move -- where speed isnt such a big problem, and i can maintain one acct. it would be great if i could host these sites all for around $20 - hopefully without much lag.

was thinking mediatemple - but after reading so many negative posts here about them - im not sure...

How Many Sites Do You Host

May 24, 2009

I did a search on the forum bu it exploded so I thought I would post the question - sorry if it's been asked.

I would like to know how many sites are commonly hosted on a dedicated server..

Say - 4 gigs of RAM, and a Q9300 (for example).

I know that some companies put 600 - 800 sites on the server and then customers talk about load and etc etc.. So, I just wanted to get a feel for how many sites/server..

Hosting Several Sites

Oct 21, 2009

I am interested in your suggestions as to what I should do. I need a setup that will allow me to host several sites. They are mostly my own and low traffic. I do not offer hosting to any other folks, if so, i will set the sites up myself. I need mysql, email and virus checker, php, and firewall. I would like unix/linus hosting and am used to cpanel. Would prefer east coast hosting since many sites pertain to local areas there. I was thinkg of a reseller or webmaster package.

Secure Sites

In terms of the secure domain, if I had a secure site and wished to access some information on a web page that was from a NON-SECURE domain or at least duplicate the non secure information on to the secure page, does the user need to click acknowledge buttons to go in and out of the secure areas? Can I copy or transfer information [eg goggle search results] onto the secure page without this necessity?

My Sites Been Cloned

Apr 15, 2008

Now i've been noticing in my logs that i have been getting referals from some other sites, but they appeared to be refering from pages with the same name as mine. I thought nothing of it until sitting on live support one evening i noticed a few visitors were viewing other domains. Which isn't right as my system shows me visitors and which page thay are viewing on my site.

Now they all actually link to my own site whenever you click a link, but seems little odd as it appears they have downloaded my entire site to their server. Almost like mirroring it without my permission or request.

So really what i need to know is:

Has anyone else seen this before?

Should i be concerned?

Is there anything i can do about it?

Number Of Sites

Aug 28, 2008

I just want a rough idea; How many sites could safely fit on a server with the following specs?

CentOS Linux 5.X

I am thinking in terms of CPU power and Ram here. The sites I have in mind are all low usage (at most 300MB storage and 1GB bandwidth per month) so bandwidth and storage is irrelevant here.

Also, Would I have to wait until all files are transfered to set my custom nameservers IP addy.

Can I conceivably get 1000 sites per server or more?

What/where in httpd.conf do i tweak to allow more files to be open?

10,000 Sites On One Server

A customer of mine for about 2 years just left for "Greener" pastures with a big time overselling host. Out of curiosity, I did a lookup search on his new IP using domaintools.

The result revealed that his website now resides on a server that has a little over 10,000 sites hosted on it.

My question goes thus:

What type of server efficiently holds such quantity of websites or could he be in for one hell of a ride?

Separate Sites On Same VPS

Jan 30, 2008

I have been running 1 site on my VPS for some time, but there is still a lot of things I don't understand 100%. Now I want to add another site to the VPS, but keep the sites as separate as possible, and I have no idea how to accomplish this.

Lets say my first domain is This means I have these settings:

I got 3 IP's: x.x.x.1, x.x.x.2 and a new one x.x.x.9

My hostname is (x.x.x.1)
My site is www(dot) (x.x.x.1)
Nameserver (x.x.x.1)
Nameserver (x.x.x.2)
Reverse DNS on x.x.x.1 to
Exim running on x.x.x.1

Lets say my second domain is It's no problem using WHM and run this site on x.x.x.9, but there is a lot of references to (nameservers, hostname and probably emails).

Is there anyway to keep the sites separate? I'm thinking that I need to request 2 new IP's, run and on these. I don't know if I can get a with reverse DNS, and I guess emails will still be from x.x.x.1.

How To Tell How Many Sites On One Server

Apr 14, 2008

Is there a way to tell how many, and the domain names, of all the sites assigned to one server or IP address on a shared hosting server? When I do a lookup on my server's IP address, it only points back to my hosting company. If I ping my domain, I get my IP address, so it seems reasonable that there's probably a way to find this out. I thought I had seen a post here about this, but searched for quite awhile, and couldn't find it.

I noticed my server's CPanel CPU Service Status went from about .4 (green) to 1.6 (red), and has pretty much stayed there the last few hours. It indicates it's a 1 CPU server. I was curious how many sites there were, and even what they were, to see if I could determine who or why the server usage is spiking.

I'm trying to learn more about hosting, and was curious about this aspect of shared hosting. I'm also looking for a way to throttle my own site to avoid causing a spike on my server. Does anyone know of a way I can ensure that my CPU usage does not exceed a predetermined amount so my hosting company won't pull the plug? Would throttling the bandwidth be possible, and perhaps a way to achieve that?

VPS For Multiple Sites

Nov 12, 2008

I currently have few websites hosted for few of my clients over different hosting providers which include from godaddy to other small hosts. I have been thinking about switching them over to a VPS.

After reading lot of threads on the WHT forum, i have decided to stick with wiredtree.
Now for the questions.

1. Wiredtree is a managed VPS server right? that means they install the OS and apache and other applications that are essential to running a site. (not talking about blog software and stuff just basic server software)

2. Do i need to have a Reseller software that lot of them are providing for billing and stuff? I bill my clients myself and take the money upfront. There are no monthly billing and stuff. I dont want to sell the hosting to anyone else then the clients that i pick. Keeping this in mind do i still need the above mentioned software.

3. If i dont get the reseller software for billing and stuff, can i still host multiple websites and have their own control panel and stuff. Basically i want to give every client a username and password where they can log on and add/remove mail accounts, create ftp accounts and etc.

4. If i dont have the reseller software can i still specify different configurations options for different clients, like client 1 has 4gb of space and 50gb of bandwidth?
