Normally, you do not need any server just to view raw HTML files, even if they reference other files, CSS and JavaScript. Simply double click on any file and it will open with the default browser of your machine from the local file system. However you may need to check if your static content has no absolute references to other files or other resources ...

Since your site is static, one solution is to use CloudFlare, because it can still serve cached pages if your site goes down (with proper configuration). It will be transparent if there is an issue. And keep a copy of your site on your laptop or on a memory stick if you can't use your laptop. If all goes wrong, you will still able to finish your ...

She continued hosting the site (with all the back-issues available for free) until the beginning of this year, when she let the hosting lapse and the domain name expire. Was she aware that when it expires anyone can pick up that domain name for any reason? Some people don’t realize that an expired domain will be resold. I also posted to the ...

You can simply open the internet page locally and display it in your browser. If you even want to show a different domain name, you can use XAMPP to open a local webserver. Host your website there and point the domain to your localhost on your maschine by appending the following line to your hosts file on your system: 127.0.0.1 ...

If the website is HTML and CSS only, You don't need a host. Just throw it on the USB stick that that you're going to use for the redundant WAMP environment and run it from whatever machine you plug it in to. If you're worried about losing the USB stick, the web host would be a suitable backup.

The only thing your friend can do to protect themselves is to contact a lawyer trying to assert copyright on the published material.

Domain ownership is not like a physical object. You never really own a domain. In exchange for your domain registration fee, you acquire the right to use that domain. If you fail to pay your fees or do not renew your domain, you release your right to that domain. ICAAN, who governs domains, has policies that control how this domain is released back ...

You could host the static content using Amazon S3. See http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/WebsiteHosting.html for a guide as to how. Basically you sign up for an AWS account, upload your website into S3, and can then access it via a url like <bucket-name>.s3-website-<AWS-region>.amazonaws.com. You can also create a custom domain for ...

If you are using Git for version control of your site... (not to judge... but you kinda should be if it's an important project!) You can host your entire website on Github's "project pages". (aka Github Pages) It's really simple to just git push your site code there. Basically you push to a branch called gh-pages and your site will automatically publish, ...

So many overly-complicated answers. The website is HTML and CSS only (no DB), and currently resides on my shared hosting account. You do not need Apache You do not need XAMP (or similar) You do not need cloudflare, dropbox or any other 3rd-party service. (github? for a presentation? please.) All you need is a portable storage device. USB key, external ...

Yes. But more than that. You aren't even going to be able to transfer registrar once it has expired. You are going to have to renew them in place and then transfer.

The best way, seen from the users and Googles point of view, would be one "main" domain to which all other domains redirect with a permanent 301 redirect. If you absolutely have to have all domains on their own, I would recommend building a small individualized landing page for each "secondary" domain and then link to the "primary" domain.

So you want to serve the content that's on a.com/xyz on b.com? Definitely possible but that's duplicate content and it's not something you want if you care about SEO. Better go with one of these options: simply 301 redirect from b.com to a.com/xyz. serve the content only on b.com. keep duplicate content and make sure the content on either a.com or ...

To make sure your website is available, you can use round-robin DNS. You can order two hosting packages with two different IP's and use round-robin DNS for load balancing. If one IP is offline, the traffic will be redirected to the other. The other way is with CloudFlare. You can use CloudFlare + round-robin DNS for extra reliability. CloudFlare is a free ...

If they want content on the sites they own they should put unique content on it. One page is enough. Much better than 302ing to your site.

I am speaking to U.S. law. Not in this case. The trademark must be registered and exist at the time the domain name was registered and that the domain owner knowingly and intentionally registered the trademarked domain name. Since your trademark name did not exist at the time the domain name was registered, the domain name owner cannot be knowingly and ...

Would this be done on the internal IIS web server I assume you're using IIS. It's possible with IIS. There are several ways. I will show the way where you use the web.config file. In your web.config file put the following code: <rewrite> <rules> <rule name="Redirect domain.com to www" patternSyntax="Wildcard" ...

What do you mean you have 2 accounts with websites no my VPS? Do you mean on your VPS you have two domains hosted, through two cPanel accounts created in WHM? I would first backup all files and databases. Then go in with SSH and look to see what folders the files are in and review apache's global and site configuration files to see what happened when you ...

If you do want to keep two separate sites (and sometimes there are good reasons to do this then my understanding is that in this scenario you should use: <link rel="canonical" href="url-to-primary-version-of-content"> This instructs the search engine that this content is a duplicate and that the primary (cannonical) source of this information exists ...
