which webhosts offers "real" unlimited shared or dedicated hosting? alot of companies say unlimited but in their terms it says they'll suspend your account if you exceed reasonable use and they don't tell you what this is.
I have a dedicated server with godaddy. Yesterday it went down. I sent a trouble ticket to their support. In 4 hours I got reply saying that everything is fine and server is just experiencing high bandwith. I was able to login to control panel (which is available through different IP address, and I have noticed that my usual 8 gigs a day bandwidth increased to 160 a day for yesterday. I cannot SSH to my server. I cannot access my website via http. I cannot FTP to my server. I cannot do anything. I have submitted another ticket and waiting fro reply.
Any suggestions? Is this an attack? (I feel it is, but not sure) What kind of attack can bring server down, if I have CISCO firewall installed? I am little upset with godaddy, because so far, my server has been down for over a day. Any providers out there, who are more rapid in terms of helping their customers? FYI: I pay them $150 a month.
Does anyone know some russian company that rents out space in their serverrooms with more or less unlimted bandwith? I need about 2-5 gb/s for streaming. And prefereably some company thats not 2 friendly to USA...
if a provider provides me a 1Mbps AIMS dedicated line for my dedicated server, is it possible for him to make it burstable to 1.5Mbps? i thought when i get a dedicated line i would be able to get max 1Mbps only? How is it possible that it can be burstable? Does that mean its not dedicated, instead shared?
I currently have a dialup isp. We use a couple of wholesale dialup service providers to provide service to our users across the nation. I would like to provide my own dialup services across the nation if the cost is justible.
Here is what I want to do:
1. Buy a remote access server (RAS) with hundreds of modems in it. The RAS will have multiple T1/PRI/T3 interface cards in it depending on which one I get.
2.Place the RAS in a Houston, TX datacenter.
3. Get voice services from a carrier that can deliever multiple T1/PRI lines (or a T3). I would want a local DID or phone number in hundredes of locations across the nation. When a number is called, it would be rerouted back to the Houston, TX PRI/T1/T3 connections WITHOUT ANY LONG DISTANCE CHARGES.
Is this possible without paying an arm and a leg for it? Can anyone give me any recommendations besides stay with a wholesale dialup provider.
My business is on the other side of the world and peak time starts at midnight in America time. I am planning to buy 100Mbps shared servers with FDCServers. I am wondering if the time of the day makes a huge difference for a shared 100Mbps line.
There is a new page on Rackspace's website where they are offering to match the price of any hosting company that sells the same package of specifications. It sounds like there will be no compromise on the standards of service included in the deal.
why so few shared hosting companies enable a php op-caching system on their system (xcache, apc, eaccelerator).
Is there some specific technical reason in place?
Usually I run my own servers, but it happens from time to time that you need a quality shared hosting in order to reccomend it to a friend, for a personal blog, a small website, maybe your own personal blog that you're not keen to host on your dedicated servers already used for big projects ...
Now, as everyone using php applications knows, software like xcache or eaccelerator gives a nice speed bost to page generation. I run xcache on all my servers and vps (mainly running vbullettin and wordpress) and never encountered any issue.
Installing one of those (eg. xcache) is a 5minutes procedure, and even for kiddie-hosting companies that won't know how to build php, the ability to compile eaccelerator is in the cpanel easy php build software, so you don't even need to know how to rebuild php to enable eaccelerator in cpanel.
Despite all these facts is quite impossible to find a decent webhoster with xcache or apc/eacc enabled ...
The only one claiming to have eaccelerator is medialayer : "# Zend Optimizer, IonCube, and eAccelerator" this is a quote from their website.
How come nobody else undertakes this step?
What I have been noticing is most premium shared-hosting provider I encountered run their server with a lot of free memory .. so why not impress the customer with blazing fast page generation times (wordpress footer displaying "page generated in 0.071 seconds" impresses also the non-technical savy customers) enabling such a simple feature ?
I'm an existing customer of Hosting Company X and notice that they have recently launched an offer that is a higher config than what I have right now, at the same price.
When asked about it, I was refused the higher config citing that new offers are not applicable for existing customers. I've been with them for over a year and have been experiencing very good support from them, but this one issue baffles me.
I am not sure if this is a dumb question or not but here it is anyway, if there is a website and some of the images are hosted on a third party site (ie. photobucket), does the bandwith for those loaded from the third party site count as the sites hosting bandwith?
In my opinion I do not believe it does because it is making a call to the image on the other hosting server, but a friend of mine who manages a forum said that once the users started using more animated signatures that the site bandwith went up by almost 40%, but all signatures are hosted on other sites.
i launched my site 1 month ago on host gators shared hosting plan and grew very quickly, and now am going to pass the 2 TB limit any hour / day so im freaking out. I dont know what to do i need to find a hosting company that offers a lot of bandwith and moderate HD space i need somehwere around 4 TB a month bandwith and 100 GIG HD my budget is from 100 -150 dollars a month.
Also i was approached by someone offering colocation services to host my files on their services is this good as well i have no idea? my site is a music sharing website where people upload and listen to music.
dedicated host provider [url] and trying to determine the options from them in regards to bandwith. If I decide to go with them I will be using them to host a youtube clone site
has any body had experience with them?
Here is their deal Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU 1 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 Ram 250 GB SATA300 Drive Unmetered Bandwidth I'm planning to ugrade the ram to 4gb at 300.00 one time extra.
They claim Free 24 hr On-Site Support so I called them up last night at 3:30am their time and did get a technition on the line. They also refer to themselves as being "fully managed" and describe in detail what that means in their faq.
Their BW is unmetered and unshared 10mbps = 3,285 gigs/mo or 4mbps 1,314 gigs/month burstable to 100 mbps going over this limit the charge is 49.00 for each 328.5 gigs
So because I'm a start up and have no idea what will be required in terms of BW. here is the question
If I had a limit on uploads of 200 mb and the average size of the videos being downloaded were 20 mb how many people could be online at the same time?
I'm not even sure if that's the right way to look at it.
My site is on forumotion right now. I want to move it and have it hosted somewhere. It is a local Mustang club. I have read all the problems with the oversold sites. I have also looked at others. The big issue is i dont rally know how much space I need. This is the site southshorestangs.com. What it will have is that forum and probably a few webpages. It is still only a month old so it will keep growing hopefully. i just dont want to get way more than I will need.
i see that there is 84/month and a 119/month VPS, which offer burstable 100mbps unmetered...i also heard they use shared line.
so what is the max bandwith that i can really push in a month ? i am okay with users loading the site @ 100kb/s, especially because the site has lot of videos through flash player, and 100kb/s or even 50kb/s sounds good.
if there are anyone that can beat FDC than please refer me to them!
