I also was finding these references in my logs. This seems to be related to a service called "Drop Down Deals", that involves a browser add-on that seems, well, broken. http://www.dropdowndeals.com/ https://nodpi.org/forum/index.php?topic=3462.0;wap2

Apparently, the Acceptable Use Policy has changed and now adult content is allowed. Greg D'Alesandre, Senior Product Manager for Google App Engine has even stated it explicitly here: I was wondering when someone was gonna notice. This was not a mistake. The new policy does not prohibit pornography nor gambling. The policy was written to disallow ...

This isn't actually related to a firefox plugin, or any plugin at all. crossdomain.xml is part of the flash/flex specification. It's a method to allow/validate cross domain operations for flash and other Adobe products, Sliverlight also seems to use/obey the same adobe policy framework. From Adobe's Cross-domain policy file specification A cross-domain ...

I don't know of any hosting services, but there's an open source implementation called appscale that can apparently run on Amazon EC2. I don't have any experience using it, but they claim to be compatible with the Python API version 1.3.2, and Java API version 1.3.5.

To use a custom domain with Google App Engine, you would follow the steps here: Google App Engine: Using a Custom Domain When you get to step number 3 there, be sure to click: Sign up for a free single user Google Apps account After this, as written there: "Proceed through the Google Apps signup process, either using an existing domain name or ...

Google's PageSpeed Service is for any website domain, so it should work for custom domains using Google App Engine. You will however first have to modify your domain's DNS with a DNS TXT record containing a verification string to let Google know that you do in fact own the domain. Then you'll have to create a CNAME record that points to ...

Static content may not start an instance at all - from http://code.google.com/appengine/docs/java/config/appconfig.html App Engine serves static files from dedicated servers and caches that are separate from the application servers. If it does then this blog post does a good job of explaining how the instances handle traffic. If a request comes ...

Not really. Edit: After Matthew Crumley's excellent answer, I have substantially rewritten this answer (I didn't know about appscale before). When you write apps to any of the cloud-specific APIs today, you're strongly locked in to the cloud vendor. Most of the business value of cloud computing comes from: The promise of near-infinite scalability, via ...

My gut says no. Servers only send gzipped content when they receive the correct Accept-Encoding header from the browser. The header itself is not part of the cookie sent by the browser and so you will not be able to modify it. Servers do this to prevent sending a compressed file to a browser that doesn't support it and thus preventing the page from ...

Yes Google Apps engine costs less. So if you can live with the restrictions (programming model!) of app engine, it is the by far more cost effective solution.

I don't think there is anything you can do about the referrer as it appears Google is generating the page which wraps the frame. I personally recommend that you reconsider using Google App Engine if you want to host on your own domain. Your current arrangement is suboptimal from an SEO perspective. If you issue the following searches in Google: ...

GAE does not support the .net runtime either for windows or mono. If you need .net support you should look windows azure from Microsoft which is custom built to support .net

As I understand it you do not upload JSP files, but rather complete WAR files. In any case here are the instructions for uploading your web application. Basically, you need to install their SDK and can then deploy using it (either from within Eclipse or via command line). You may also want to read a bit about how to build your web project so that it will ...

If you have not connected all your domains to your GAE app. in that case you can use redirecting options offered by your domain host. GAE is just like any other web hosting, if you have connected each of your domains to an app, you can use a simple HTTP redirect, preferably a "301 moved permanently", to do this, you need to have an HTML index/landing page ...

The "masking" capability uses an IFRAME. That's indeed probably not what you want. The easiest is to have your own Apache settings, maybe with a VPS since those are pretty cheap ($20/mo. these days). That way you do not have to bother with such forwarding features. You can do all your setup directly in your Apache, DNS, etc.

You should be able to do this on a global scale using webapp.RequestHandlers class FormHandler(webapp.RequestHandler): def post(self): if processFormData(self.request): self.redirect("the specific url") else: Also this your find more support on stack overflow since this is python based coding.

Google's cached version of your website does not necessarily reflect the 'freshness' of their index There are no problems associated with indexing a website hosted with Google App Engine Just because Google crawls a webpage does not mean that they will index it. Take a look at site:www.plugimmo.com for all of your indexed pages. This might have to do ...

1and1.com does allow you to set up your own MX records. If you set them up and enable the email without verifying the domain, it might work. the mx servers for google are at http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=174125 Might be worth a shot. However, in future it would be a good idea to move to a registrar that allows you manage ...

Have a look at https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/adminconsole/instances. Mainly, the frontend instance is for serving time-sensitive requests, for example, web requests. It has a deadline limited (probably 30 secs). The backend instance is for serving not time-sensitive requests, for example, cron jobs.

You're probably best off running a Windows machine in the cloud, using Amazon's EC2, or renting a VPS (Virtual Private Server). Neither are really quick, though with EC2 there is lots of documentation.

Support for Python 2.5 has been deprecated and you should move only install version 2.7 upwards on Google Engine. These are both documented excellently at Developers Google: Install Python 2.7 on Google App Engine Django on Google App Engine

See this StackOverflow Question for details on setting up the Google side of things (essentially, add a new URL and make the necessary DNS changes). You will need a CNAME (type of DNS record) for the www subdomain, but I believe GoDaddy enables those by default. If you need to change your DNS settings on GoDaddy, you can access the DNS Manager from: Login ...

It is currently not possible, however, you aren't charged for usage below the free quotas.

GoDaddy's forwarding feature does preserve paths. I have a .org domain registered with GoDaddy and forwarded to the corresponding .com domain. Paths are preserved. I use the following forwarding options: Redirect type: 301 permanent Forward settings: forward only

"App Engine costs nothing to get started. All applications can use up to 500 MB of storage and enough CPU and bandwidth to support an efficient app serving around 5 million page views a month, absolutely free. When you enable billing for your application, your free limits are raised, and you only pay for resources you use above the free levels."

This page documents how to set up a custom domain for your App Engine app. If you're seeing a sites page instead, that may be mapped to your www subdomain; you need to delete that mapping and add the one described in the doc.

Your calculation is only true if you are hosting a static website directly from S3. The free tier also includes the micro instance; and that will have EBS storage that you can use to host the site. The uploads could be handled there too. BTW: I'm not disputing that App-engine isn't cheaper. If its paradigm works for you, it almost certainly is less ...
