Tackling it directly and amicably hasn't been effective so tackling it through their webhosting company using the legal process is likely to bring a very swift response and strongly discourage them from continuing to do this. The DMCA is the best and fastest approach in my view and applies in the UK, US and EU. It's also free (more on this later). The ...

If I write ftp://myhostname, the browser asks for FTP username and password and I think this may be a security problem because it doesn't happen with other websites like ftp://google.com. It can happen with numerous other URLs. What you discovered is that a server has FTP software installed and setup properly so that it allows no anonymous user access. ...

She already says she has a place to host the website, but was asking if I could make it using wordpress and then give her the source code. Is this possible? Sort of. You can create a free site on wordpress.com but you can't export the look and feel of it...just the content. Alternately, if you have PHP and MySQL hosting, you can download WordPress ...

Most of shared web hosting companies occupy server level caching on their servers, It'll take around 15 minutes to update. Try to call your page like this index.html?sth

You'll need to create an A record and then enter host name (subdomain.example.com) and then add the ip address of the server. For Godaddy follow these steps. Log into account Open the Domain Manager Click the domain you are working with Click "Total DNS Control and MX Records" The first group in this area should be A (Host), on the top right of this bar, ...

It's called a subdomain, indeed. Whether you can use them is completely up to your host; they might be included in your hosting plan. You should contact them to find out.

Most likely caused by your TTL values or DNS not propagating. Time to live is what dictates how long it will be until your computer refreshes its DNS related information. For example, the IP address your domain name points to or where your MX records are directing email. This time is defined in seconds and the default setting can be found in ...

Ten hours ago I signed up for a HostGator account and uploaded my new website. I also updated my registrar's DNS info to point to HostGator's nameservers. I agree with closetnoc. 10 hours have gone, so you got about another 38 to go before everyone sees the new page. A DNS record has an IP address associated with it and its cached for at least 1/4 of ...

Obviously- you know what you are doing!! It is refreshing! Short of a real problem, these things can take anywhere from 24-72 hours to fully propagate the DNS records noramlly. One way to know if things are working okay is to temporarily update your local computers DNS entries for the site SOA (often it is the registrars) DNS servers. This is a trick I use ...

Oh Lord No! You do not want access to the live site lest you make a mistake and are able to take responsibility for anything that could possibly go wrong even if it has nothing to do with you. It may be necessary that you deploy the site for the client. However, in this case, it seems that the client is willing to take on the this task. To answer your ...

It is very unusual to not get information about the server. You can't even really know what the client is willing to install. Usually you either get direct access, or you get complete specs of what you possibly need to know. You really can't setup DB connection and other stuff without knowing. At the very least you need to make sure you're not responsible ...
