I say relative, because I have built several websites in the past, going back to 1998 or so, but have never really pursued it heavily, and only recently have decided to get into the game on a more proactive scale.
In searching for a web host, I run across common TOS which seems on the surface to exclude what I want to do, which among other niches I've got in mind, include investing (gold, real estate, forex, commodities, etc.).
Maybe some of the hosting vendors here can help me with clarification. I do not want to host an investment platform, like a stock or forex trading platform. I just want to publish info sites with affiliate links to the investment products I deem worthy.
Any problem with that? If so, does anyone know of good hosting for such sites?
I've perused many hosting forums lately and find this one to be among the top of the top! Good job WHT owners!
I am planning to signup with one or more web hosts as an affiliate to make some money and would like to get some suggestion from you guys. (BTW, I have read plenty of old posts here at WHT and reading more when I find time).
- What is(are) the hosts that provide top recurring payouts (20% and above)? anyone in particular to avoid ?
- Is it wise to join only one or join atleast a few (2 or 5 ?) to spread the risk ?
- lastly, can money (mid 4 figures per month) be really made by being an affiliate ?
I am planning to create a hosting directory really soon and sign up affiliate accounts of the most popular hosting providers. What recommendations could you provide me with to make visitors become interested in ordering hosting from my website?
I'd like to go with 1and1, using ASP.net and MS SQL Server, and the ability to setup lots of databases, websites and URLs, but I'm not keen on maintaining the server, updates, backups etc. I'd also like to access the web space and upload files, from any computer.
I am planning on launching an mp3 site for a music studio. the problem now is, i dont know what type of bandwidth usage to expect from users and i dont want my client to think its my fault. (some of them dont really want to know the technical basics) To give a hint of the advice i am looking for,: say i have 300 different mp3 files at 3.0 mb per size what size of hosting and bandwidth should i look for that can cater for upwards of 100,000 users who will listen to up to 6 hrs of music on the site.
I'm looking to host my own website(s), money isnt really an issue, but I'd like some advice on which package would be most suitable. I can't upgrade to different platforms, so I need to get the right package from the start.
I like the sound of the dedicated server, but my experience of supporting servers isn't great, so I'm wary of getting this option.
The VPS looks good, could anyone please tell me how this works? What the difference between thi sand a dedicated server? Do you need alot of server support experience to use this?
Would the normal MS hosting package be suitable? I take it its not very flexible.
I have about 5 sites all hosted on my same hosting account. One of those domains is attached to the hosting account. I place my other domains in a folder of a sub-directory of my main domain. This has been working fine, up until today when i noticed a weird error. I give you a little example of how my sites are setup
my main domain: www.maindomain.com
My other sites hosted in a sub-directory of my main domain: www.maindomain.com/sites/site2/ www.maindomain.com/sites/site3/
How my other sites appear on the web: www.site2.com www.site3.com
This works fine for every page until i go to www.site2.com/index.php It redirects to www.maindomain.com/sites/site2/index.php for some reason
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.
Well i design websites for people and they ask where should i host the site and i can get email and ftp and a cpanel and so on and i just let them host it on my account on free web hosting provider but i currently have 1 site hosted on my server which is running on windows server edition 2003 and it gives me the option to add another website how would i do that using the same ip?
For hosting smaller sites 10-20 pages with low niche traffic would it be better to host them individually on small hosting plans or would it be to your advantage to host themt together on a dedicated server?
who host ~20-30 doorway sites in his reseller account.
The main question is, that i don't know, does "doorway sites" illegal, do they restrict any rules, TOS? (webhosting business isn't my main business, so i'm newbie in this area)
There insn't anything abnormal in his sites. main page it's like sitemap, where are lister links to secondary pages (html static pages). when i click on this links, i redirected to other sites (PPC, another sites don't hosted on our server, etc)
if it's illegal, i'll ask to move to another host, if no ...
Hi I've never worked with a dedicated host, and I was considering going with hostgator, because they provide managed hosting and cPanel, which I'm fond of.
This is not for my own sites, but for someone I work for as a programmer/webmaster. He has asked that I make the decision on this, even though I've basically advised against it, due to my lack of experience with dedicated hosting.
I've also looked at lunarpages, doesn't seem to be much different than hostgator. Here are links to their pages...
Does anyone have experience from either of these? I don't think the sites hosted on the server are going to be particularly high bandwidth sites (I don't really think they even need a dedicated host) ... do you think we'll be okay with a single 2.8 Ghz processor?
Also, does anyone have any advice as far as the number of sites hosted on the server? He wants to move ALL of them to the same server. Any thoughts on whether or not this is a good idea?
I know I've asked a lot here but I'm really getting into new territory. If you can provide any input on ANY of the above items, I'd greatly appreciate it.
I am looking for a Canadian host who necessarily have their servers in Canada who offer dedicated hosting and who hosts adult sites. I don't have anything particular specifications as of now since my sites are overall small (1k/day).
I work for Microsoft. Used to be a regular participant on Web Hosting Talk a few years ago (then moved over to Europe at that time). I've been doing some work recently that has led me back to the community here to ask for some input on where administrators of Windows-based hosting services go to find technical information.
How often might you use the following two Web sites?
1) [Hosting Solutions on TechNet]
2) [Windows Hosting Discussions]
I've just re-registered a new account so I have to do the five post thing before I can insert links, otherwise I'd to a direct link to the two above. If you're not familar with them, just do a Web search for those phrases and the sites will be at the top of the list.
Are there other Web sites that you use regularly for technical information on operating Windows hosting services? Or do you mostly just enter a phrase in Google and temporarily use the Web site/s that come up in the search results?
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...
