Do a traceroute on the IP address in question and you will more than likely find that the IP address traces to Europe somewhere. The whois record for the IP address in question is simply returning the registered owner of the IP address range and their organisational details. It will show up as the US as that is where GoDaddy is registered and where they will ...

...in case the webhoster disabled the use of .htaccess files? If the webhost has disabled the use of .htaccess files then there is no direct alternative. (.htaccess = per-directory Apache config file) .htaccess files are not necessary if you have access to the Apache server config. In fact, it is preferable to use the server config instead of .htaccess ...

Your third option is definitely the way to go - leave all the bloat behind and go static. I recommend Jekyll for managing the static site since it has the largest number of users, which makes finding tutorials and troubleshooting answers easier. There are two approaches you can take, either export your WP site to Jekyll-ready output with a plugin or set up ...

I don't think there is a way to reserve a domain name without actually registering it via an ICANN-accredited registrars I use a service called Synergy Wholesale which you have to do a one time payment to gain access to their services. Otherwise i recommend ventraip. If you want the cheapest option then registering it via GoDaddy or similar would work, ...

What I can suggest is to adjust your title tags and meta description tags as well as H1 tags to make user's understand that your site is NOT the TV show. For example, if your site is a site about building homes and both the TV show and your site is called ABC, then I suggest adding meat to the tags. So instead of having the title as "ABC" or "ABC inc", ...

"....so services like Godaddy won't be necessary". Actually they are. You need a registrar (ie, Godaddy and others) to "rent" a domain from the Government. You never actually ever own a domain. They simply won't let you have a domain or TLD that isn't registered via an accredited registrar. You can always transfer registrars though, for a small fee. You can ...

It's been a long time since I've used Apache and I don't use PHP but ... You can set your own HTTP headers, redirect, and just about everything else within a programming environment that doesn't block you from accessing those files. I don't recall where in the flow .htaccess is looked at when PHP pages are executed but you would need to find out, by ...

As far as I know, there are no alternatives. Seems this topic was discussed from another angle : Alternative to .htaccess (due to bad performance?)

Go ahead and purchase the domain name through GoDaddy. You will be able to transfer it to your own hosting when you are ready. You will have to wait 60 days before you are able to transfer the domain name however. If you are worried about paying a monthly fee, then just avoid any hosting package.

There is currently now way to fix that, because GitHub Pages currently don't support HTTPS for custom domains. As you are using Cloudflare, you need to check whether you can configure such redirect in Cloudflare.

In short no. Your TLD records have to be on the same nameserver. The DNS lookup first tries to find your main domain - then gets the records in order to determine what to do with the request. It's only after this it processes the subdomain. You can direct different subdomains to different IPs (servers) but you can't force a client to keep looking at name ...

There could be a number of things happening: Have you put the page in the document root? usually public_html. Does your host allow temporary URLs xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/~user? This is an option that can be enabled/disabled by the host. Have you checked DNS propagation? Have you tried a traceroute to your domain to make sure it traces to your host?

You can use this (usually) to make an HTML copy of the site that does not have dynamic content (or backend, admin, etc.). Then just upload the HTML to the directory of your choice and configure it to be served... maybe "http://archive.yoursiteurl.com" HtTrack It's been years since I used it, but it works (worked) quite well.
