bext type of server to get for my current requirements please.
I need a server to host a simple company web site and our product which is also a web site.
The company web site will be set up soon but the product is still 5-6 months away from being put onto the market. So at present I need a server to host the web site and also need a place where I can host the web site product as I continue to develop it and upload files to the server.
Now ultimately the web site product will have a number of users (I hope!) will contain content including video presentations and will will have a forum so it's important that users have fast access to such material without having to wait.
I thought I would go for a VPS from a company called VT6 Internet who have had some good reviews on this forum.
My budget is around £70 ($140) per month.
However I'm now considering whether I might be able to save some money and go a for a decent (buy cheaper option) in the mean time while the product continues to be developed.
Such as a shared host or a reseller?
I would be really grateful for any advice from you guys please.
If you were in an early stage situation like mine would you go straight for a VPS or make do with a shared or reseller and upgrade as your company grows?
I was just curious. When reseller accounts only cost another $10-15 per month, I was wondering if a lot of people just go straight to a reseller account, and don't bother with normal shared account. For me, I always get at least a reseller account, and haven't purchased a shared account in a few years now.
And I suppose there are two ways of looking at this: 1. Ratio of shared accounts to reseller accounts 2. Ratio of total domains on shared account to reseller accounts
I think I probably have read enough to know that I need reseller, but just in case ...
I want to give free websites and hosting away to members of my team. I want them to all have separate domains and IP addresses.
I looked at some shared hosting where I can have up to 10 domains on an account, but I'm hoping there will be closer to 50 or 60 of us. I kinda like the idea of them being under my 'umbrella' so to speak; ie if someone breaks our rules too terribly, I have the option of closing their site down. Or if they want to leave the group, they could just pay me monthly for their space.
I'm in need of a good IRCd host. I only need the IRCd process, a process for services, and one additional process for my site's eggdrop. I need a dedicated IP address and at least 5 gig/month bandwidth. I can pay up to $15 a month.
I will get either shared(baby or business) or reseller(Aluminum) from Hostgator but which one is better for me? I will never resell but I will make lots of websites though none of them will probably get too much trafic. If I get shared baby/business, can I host many small websites and control them efficiently? Are all my websites gonna have different directories?
I am currently hosted at Qoozz.com. Leslie has provided a great service, I've had 99.8% uptime for the year and a half I've been with her (as per hyperspin.com). However, I would like something with a little more freedom, and there's a big price difference between the $12/mo package I'm on now and the cheapest dedicated server they offer, at $40/mo.
I am pretty sure an unmanaged VPN is what I need, but I guess I need to make sure on that. I know my way around Linux, but I've never managed a server before. I'm sure it can't be too hard.
My current specs are 8gb/100gb bandwidth... my usage is well below that, but I have one client who purchased 6gb of that space, so I need at least 8-10gb to be safe. Bandwidth, I could lower that to 50gb probably. CPanel is not necessary. I don't know how much RAM I'd need.
So, that all being said, does anyone have any recommendations for a reliable VPN host that costs near waht I'm paying now? ($12/mo). I can pay more, especiall for quality, I just don't know what is average for my specs.
I have a few projects of making websites for some clients. I want to buy some hosting space, should i buy shared or resellers accounts? When they say one can host unlimited domains on a shared hosting space does it mean one can also use it for different clients. As of now i am not interested in just selling domain names and hosting spaces to clients. I need space only to host the website i design for my clients.
why reseller accounts are considered better than shared hosting accounts?
Both are the same, except that reseller manages each domain separately. Shared hosting is way much cheaper than a reseller, are there really big negatives which make them much cheaper?
If SEO and Adsense wise, there is a difference between shared and reseller, due to separate domain management in the reseller being favourable for SEO, I would go with reseller.
So far, I've done shared hosting, and using htaccess, had no problems setting up multiple sites in my shared account, which is a lot cheaper than any reseller account. Not sure how the search engines would treat my multiple sites....
Are addon domains (in a shared hosting) - bad, since Cpanel actually treats them as subdomains?
how come the difference between shared and resellers storage is so different? If you buy shared, you can get stupid amounts of storage like 250 gigs or even unlimited for $5 a month. Yet the same company sells a reseller account for $30 and you only get 20 gigs.
Assuming you are going to split that up and sell that 20 gigs in 1 gig blocks to try and make money, why wouldn't your potential customer buy the shared account instead, and get way more space? It seems backwards to me. Shared $5 should be 20 gigs, and resellers $30 should be 250 gigs. I'm talking about big name trusted sites, not fly-by-nights who have unlimited everything.
The more I read on the forum, the more I'm beginning to consider a reseller plan.
Basically, I'm an ASP.NET/MS-SQL developer and I foresee myself developing (and possibly managing) a relatively small number of websites for people who likely have neither the technical skills nor desire to get too involved with maintaining their websites. So, I need to be able to host multiple domains, have multiple databases, and probably multiple FTP accounts.
The obvious advantage of reseller accounts, as I understand them, is that they give you the ability to provide the website owner (my customer) the tools to manage their site in more or less the same way they could if they directly set up their hosting account with GoDaddy or whomever. But, if my customers end up being people that don't want to mess with any of that, then this capability is not important. However, after looking at ResellerZoom.com, which I saw recommended in another thread, it seems the sheer capacity of resources available, e.g. unlimited databases, 200 domains, make it worth the slightly higher cost.
I currently have Reseller Hosting with Clook UK costing me £21.14 per month but I have noticed several providers now have VPS packages available for only £17.99 per month. The VPS packages are able to offer more storage space and higher bandwidth for less money.
I'm considering making the move to a Linux VPS service but need to know if the learning curve is steep in comparison to the CPanel/WHM environment I am used to?
I'll be looking to move 3 sites which all include forums onto this new service.
Can anyone recommend a good but fairly cheap host? All servers must be UK based.
I know to some of you this may sound like a totally silly question. But I would like to know what the main advantages are if you have a VPS instead of a shared reseller hosting.
I notice some of the basic VPS packages give you 512MB of memory. Other than that, the rest of the stats seem to be along the lines of what you might get in an advanced reseller hosting plan such as one available from Reseller Zoom.
I am looking into VPS as a dedicated server is a little over my budget, however, I am not entirely clear what makes VPS better.
an recommendation on a shared hosting reseller with unlimited bandwidth(or atleast about 1500gb) and about 60-70gb harddrive? And preferably have servers in the US and europe, so i can pick one in usa and 1 in europe.
ive got a cpanel server up and running, found an egg drop related text file in /tmp any ideas on how to remove it, like is there something in /scripts i can use, this is quite an urgent reqeust as my isp have provided KVMoIP access to the server but want to get it back up asap
I've been concerned about executing commands through (./) using php and perl shells on the server
a new way of hacking these days is using perl shells , even if the perl was terminated on the server ,, or was forbidden for users hackers upload a (perl) program to the server to use it instead of the server's own perl
any way ,,
chmoding the (ls-cat-more-less) to 4750 seems to give permission denied when exeuting these programs on the server but the hackers also found that they could upload their own ls-cat-more-less programs and use them instead of the server's
they also could rename them ls==>ki or anything and use them like this
./ki /etc/valiases -alXrt and the commands work like charm for them
./ <<--- this command uses the sh program on the server ,, ((sh which refers to bash on most servers)) so
./ki is the same as
so i tried chmoding sh with 4750 and that killed the exploit
i was concerned about cpanel's and the website's functionality so i tried changing an accounts password and creating a database ,, they both worked fine
so ,, if u thing chmoding 4750 sh is a bad idea please let me know
and if you know any other ways of disabling all the perl scripts on the server
for save my server from perl shells , many hakers can haked by cgi-telnet & r57 shell with perl how can save perl without stop it because if i stop it cpanels was disabled any one have any way to save my server from shell perl?
