How To Point Www.website.com To Website.com (or Vice Versa)
May 3, 2008
If I type google.com in my address bar, it forwards me to www.google.com. This is not happening for my website right now. I think its a good idea to do this, since then search engines will have only 1 main URL for the website to index.
My question is:
How do I implement this? I think this may involve mucking with CNAME settings...
I use Ian Lloyd's book and that's where I found out about this forum. Looks like a great forum.
I downloaded Fliezilla FTP and I'm trying to transfers files from my computer onto an angelfire web site.
Filezilla asks for a server address and I put in the URL address that I registered with angelfire. It then asks me for an administration password, and I put in my password to the angelfire site. I keep getting: Error: Connection to server lost...
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here? I would like to use Filezilla to upload my files (web pages) to the angelfire site.
I have a website which is currently hosted with streamline.net on their shared msql 11 server.
We have had several issues with them over the last few weeks where someone is using most of the server and slowing everyone elses sites down so much so they crash. This week and weekend are my busiest time of the year (I sell fancy dress) and my site it totally unuseable.
We have phoned them and they have done nothing except ask us for a log which we have provided for short periods of time.
The down time has now got so bad that I have had only 2 sales today. I estimate I am losing approx 400 per day at the moment due to this problem.
Is there anything that I can do urgently to prevent my business from being killed by someone else.
So I'm interviewing with a company and when I typed in the URL to their website, I was met with a nasty surprise: a "hacked by so and so" message! However, after looking closer, I see that I had accidentally appended a period (".") to the end of the domain name, for example: http://www.example.com./
When I removed the period, the site appeared as normal. I don't know anything about the server other than it's IIS. Is there anything I can suggest to them when I go in to interview? I'd like to point this out to them; it may even help my chances at landing the job! (It's not related to networking, though.)
Is it possible to buy a dedicated server off eg Dell and host your own website on it from home ie with a www prefix to the url- Do ye know any good tutorial on it. Would 20Mbit bandwidth be enough bandwidth for a fairly busy php ,mysql site? Completely new to this.
I have a domain name websiteexample.com and its hosted with somebody, I have built a new website under a new domain .co.uk on a new server and need to redirect my .com to the .co.uk, how the best way to handle this with serach engines in mind, I dont want to loose my .com listing if possible, is a framed forward a good way?
I want to have my email and website going to different servers:
At the moment i have it setup so that the nameserver records point to the ip of the website. That means that both site and mail go to the server where i host my site. I have then set up an mx record to point the mail to another server...
however can i make this split at the start?.. i.e. from the domain registar? can i set up an A record to point to the website and an MX record for the mail? instead of pointing them both to the website and then redirecting the mail to another server?
Just this week, I believe one of my site has been hacked...or potentially my whole server! When accessing the website (a vBulletin forum), instead of going to the main page, we get a screen that looks like Window's "My Computer" and there is a scan running. Firefox has blocked the site for suspicion.
I am stumped. Where to begin? I have full SSH access to my server (after rebooting it). Thank you in advance.
I have a wordpress site, and am trying to find someone good and reasonable price to design me a template for the website so I can still use wordpress but have access and control to everything.. I am going to buy a domain as well to hook wordpress up to it so I can edit themes etc.. I was looking at maybe using mmhosting..
Also, I have a forum, but not sure what type of forum I need to be able to arrange it and add and use features don't I can't now, so basically upgrade..
My site, as I said is wordpress but I want it to look like the forums I am using..
I'm thinking of starting a website that pokes fun at news stories and photos, but I'm a complete rookie at this. All the RSS feeds I found say they are free for non-commercial use. I want to be able to sell t-shirts and caps on my site, or at least advertising. Any ways to use current news and photos that are free or inexpensive?
I've discovered that a site of mine has being completely copied
The sites are in a different country
The original site, that is still currently under construction with a lot of copy, rewriting and pages still have
Now, I don't mind someone taking inspiration or borrowing ideas. I'll admit as a web designer I have 1000's of book marks of sites that I've liked and will look at for ideas and inspiration, but I don't just download and put up.
Now as the sites are in a separate country I don't know yet if it is worth all the hassle as our customer base are separate, but I presume that having identical content means that google ranking could be damaged?
I just changed hosts, thinking it would be faster. My homepage uses 53MB of RAM. My old host lets me use ini_set to change this (currently have it at 128MB), my new host doesn't (48MB).
So, I've cut some of the functionality of the site to make it work on the new host. Should I upgrade the hosting plan to higher RAM? Given that the site already works reasonably well on the new host, what type of performance boosts could I expect to see by doubling the RAM?
how much diskspace and bandwidth do big websites like facebook and myspace use up monthly? is there a website where i can find this information out? how much actual diskspace and bandwidth does the average website take up?
I own a VPS through GoDaddy and I just bought a second for my website. My goal is to have all of the .zip files hosted on this second server, and all of the scripts, forums, and images hosted on the other. At the moment the server holding the scripts and everything works fine I just can't figure out how to set the second server as a file host for my domain.
Ideally, I would like to have the second server be FILES.DOMAIN.COM while the first server is DOMAIN.COM. I have no idea how to do this x_x
