Just a general question here but does it put you off signing up with a host if their HQ's are not based in the US or UK?
For example, would you always choose a host based in the US or UK over a host based in India, China or the Phillippines (i.e. English not being their first language as per communication with techs/sales staff)?
I have a task of converting a current Win Server based apache server from multiple IP based virtual hosts to a full name based virtual hosting.I'm famiilar with the steps but I was wondering if there are any gotchas in Windows that I should be aware of. It seems that now matter what I change in the new config it doesn't work or work as expected.
i suppose this type of post is common in this forum so i hate to do it but i do need come advice.
I hava a shared host but i need to move to a dedicated host. I'm having real problems finding a host that i think i can trust.....i was considering going with 123 reg....the price is about right....£40 monthly and they're in the uk so support should be easier............then i read loads of bad things about them an decided against it.
I need a dedicated host ( linux) for about £40 a month based in the uk....can anyone reccomend anyone reliable with good support....cpanel would also be good......and do they all have setup fees like 123 reg?
As far as I can tell, SSL is working perfectly on my server. Though I am wondering why I am getting errors logged? By the looks of it, I've been getting them every day since I opened my server.
Here's a few: [30/Jun/2008 04:30:46 04877] [warn] Init: (host.mywebsite.com:443) You configured HTTP(80) on the standard HTTPS(443) po$ [30/Jun/2008 04:30:46 04877] [warn] Init: SSL server IP/port conflict: mywebsite.com:443 (/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.c$ [30/Jun/2008 04:30:46 04877] [warn] Init: You should not use name-based virtual hosts in conjunction with SSL!!

I have set up IP-Based Virtual Hosts, as I have been requested to set it up for SSL.
I have successfully set up all redirects and routes using the IFCONFIG and ROUTE.
My query is this, I have noticed that each HTTP request actually has to come in through the Virtual IP address (which is assigned to each site) from outside. Else it just displays the default host. Does this mean I have to have a separate phone line and router for each web-site I wish to host?
I was in the market for a new dedicated server after a couple of years with my previous provider. The previous provider did nothing wrong but they were no longer competitive when it came to CPU and memory.
I moved first to geekrack. And I left them after a week and a half as they never were able to get my rDNS records setup.
I found Universal Hosts on this forum and gave them a shot. I had asked for an operating system that they didn't offer normally (Debian 64 bit) and they said that they could do it. However, when my server was setup it was 32 bit Debian instead. They apologized and had Debian 64 bit setup less than 24 hours later.
When I asked them to get rDNS records setup it took a few hours but they were setup correctly and they worked.
Universal Hosts is also a BurstNet reseller but compared to my other attempt at using a BurstNet reseller they are fantastic. While the initial config was incorrect they worked quickly to fix it and were very professional about it.
So after two weeks - so far so good. Keep up the good work UniHosts!
I am running Apache2.2, PHP5.I have been running with virtual hosts on a Windows 7 environment fine for a couple of years successfully, but have just had to move to a Windows 8 environment.It looks like Apache and PHP have installed and are working fine, but my Virtual hosts are now not being recognised. From what I can tell, it is the Windows 8 hosts file that is having a problem, as it looks as though it is now just setup to Block websites.
If I make the host file just have the one line127.0.0.1 localhost entry, then the very first Virtual Host from my apache config file will come up, but the rest are not found.If I put the usual 127.0.0.1 mywebsite.name aliasname is appears as though my website works momentarily and then is blocked..
Recently I stumbled along a host on here with a good rep and that uses direct admin.
Because they were very nice on the live support I signed up to see what direct admin was like.
Its very diferent from cpanel. Some parts seem to be harder to use like the phpmyadmin requires the username and password to the database you created not the control panel username and password like cpanel. Although I guess that could be a good security feature just in case some one gets into the control panel they can not get into the phpmyadmin, then again if they are smart and were able to get into the control panel they could get into ftp and look what the username and password is on the config file for the script you are using.
The bandwidth meter seems to be better in direct admin although I think its acting up for me as its putting yesterdays bandwidth on todays. I was told by the host that it updates every 2 hours and at first it did but now its gone to every day. Oh and unlike cpanel this bandwidth meter includes bandwith used by the control panel.
Niether one from what I can tell counts sftp though at least for the hosts I have right now.
I'm looking for a cheap VPS with the following requirements:
- Based in the EU - Unlimited monthly bandwidth - Price under 50 EUR / month, the cheaper the better - At least 20GB space, at least 10 MBit, other specs do not matter - Linux distro or FreeBSD, SSH access - Good reliability, doesn't mean i want a 99% uptime guarantee, but something that doesn't have too many problems Preferred locations are near Austria, but anywhere in the EU is good. Also it is a plus if they have upgrade options to better packages if i need it at a later time.
I liked Kimsufi, however I cannot rent from my country even though I can pay by credit card or paypal. I am based in Slovenia and i can pay by Visa debit or Paypal (Visa preferred).
We've tried before several times RAM based hosting (where you have all files on RAM disk). Our systems were crashing, but my guess is that we were putting about 100,000 or so files on it and since it was formatted with ext3 (everywhere else we are using XFS) - this was a reason for crashing.
Since we have a lot of bandwdith in our data center, we are thinking about becoming a mirror for CentOS, gOS and some other distributions. I am thinking again about using RAM disk based hosting (you use 1 Gb/s port 100% no problem with it even on CoreDuo level of CPU).
Anybody has any experince, good or bad of running RAM based hosting? I am talking about dedicated, not VPS environment.
As you might know if you read my other thread I'm often looking for VPS servers (at the moment Linux only), based around the world.
This weeks challenge for me is a china/hong kong based VPS, nothing too fancy, its only going to be used for small websites and as a proxy service for when we run ranking reports for our SEO clients.
Requirements - English support if possible, although we do have some Chinese speakers in house. - 128mb ram, 2gb disk space, 20gb transfer/mo - CentOS 5 preferred, but any system with a working Yum or similar will do.
Budget up to €30 a month, but could go higher if i had to.
Payment -for various reasons we cannot use paypal at the moment, so even if its just paypal credit card processing they won't let us use it. This is something we are looking to solve but its not my dept so i'm stuck with it.
- We can pay by Visa Credit or Visa Debit cards, and if we really had to, bank transfer, but I'm told transfers to china are sometimes very tricky to get right.
I have had a look through the VPS offers forum but most of the china-related posts are from 2006 or so and so aren't relevant anymore.
I've been investigating and testing Xen for a few months in order to add Xen VPS to the hosting services I have available. With the recent news re: VMware Server, and my experience with VMware, I've started to look, and easily prefer, using this product over Xen. Has anyone else started to look at it as a possible alternative for hosting purposes?
I have a file server, and want to build a system that has network-based reload feature. However, I have no idea how to create it. Is there any tutorial to do that? So whenever I need to reload OS for my server, I can do myself, dont need to ask help from the tech in datacenter?
I'm thinking about adding a linux based router to my cabinet. I have 8 computers so I'm not looking for anything that's tricky. In fact some of this is just for my own education as to what routers can do.
The biggest feature that's important to me is ease of use. I want something that I can configure from a web based menu. So what linux based router software is the easiest to use and most educational?
Also - I dealing with about 30mb 95th percentile traffic. Peak is 100mb. Would a box that has and AMD dual core CPU with 8 gigs of ram be a good enough computer to run on?
