Clearing the file cache You've mentioned that you're cleared you cache and I have to assume that this you mean the files cache and not that of the DNS cache. As far as I know clearing the file cache and history has no impact on DNS cache that most modern browsers use today, it's also important to note that the expire time may be different in Chrome or even ...

As Anagio points out, the easiest way for an on-line stalker to figure out if the websites are related is through the domain name registrations. Most domain registrars have identity protection options and you should check these out before registering the domains. Ideally you would register the two domains with separate domain registrars. Two websites ...

So your explanation was really confusing, but your solution seems fairly simple: Your domain's servers are already pointed to the cloudflare nameservers. You do not need to change these. Cloudflare is still pointing users to your old host, but you can edit the DNS records in cloudflare to point to your new host. Simply change the existing A record to point ...

If you have access to the DNS of your domain this should be possible. You can create a subdomain called foo.bar.example.com in your DNS, but of course it must point somewhere, e.g. 127.0.0.1. If you do not have DNS access this is most likely not possible. If your web host allows you to create subdomains, most likely you can add subdomain.subdomain.domain. ...

It does not sound like that was good advice. I do not have the details, so I will assume normal circumstances where you have one registrar and a separate host. If your domain name is registered with GoDaddy (or anyone really), you can host it within their DNS for free (assuming GoDaddy) and I recommend that. I always like to see the registrar host the DNS ...

A possible solution might be to host all the sites on your server, but use a service like CloudFlare to deliver the "questionable" sites. With this approach, the world would see a CloudFlare IP address for the web site, even though the content ultimately comes from your server. Of course, you would still need to use third-party DNS and mail servers to keep ...

I expect that they mean that the input and output on your network connection is capped at 1Mb/second. (Note the lower case b for Megabits as opposed to a capital B which would mean Megabytes.) Hosting providers often provide a graph of your historical network i/o that looks something like this: image source 1Mb/second is about 10GB of transfer each ...

This is because of caching. The internet works by IP adressess, but people don't work like that, so we've got domainnames. A domainname is a alias for an IP address (simple put). If you go to example.com, the browser needs the ip address. It gets that of DNS server (Domain Name), which translates the domainname to an ipaddress. If your browser has to ask ...

1) Make a dump (backup) of your database. 2) FTP the code from your current host to your new host. 3) Create a database on your new host. Make certain that the database name and username is the same as it is on the current platform. If this is not possible, then you'll need to modify your code to suit the new platform. 4) Execute the SQL script created in ...
