My question is what file permissions should I set for the files in this folder before I submit it to the hosting service in order to avoid problems with security, access, other things? There are many different types of hosting services, e.g.: your files won't have the same permissions on a shared hosting than in a dedicated server. It doesn't matter ...

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 ...

...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 ...

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

"....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 ...

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.

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.

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", ...

Domain extension used to give benefit to the website earlier, but now days search engine algorithms are very advance, so they don't consider these information as primary source for the search engine ranking. You can use country based domain like France(.fr) or choose .com domain for your website. Please note you have to choose from two option which are ...

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 ...

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?

If you redirect with mod_rewrite, you can set up a rewrite condition such that it will redirect everything except wp-admin: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/wp-admin RewriteRule (.*) http://mywixsite.example.com/$1 [R]

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 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 ...

Do many shared hosting impose a quote? short answer, yes most of them do. Even when stated unlimited, locks/quotas are in place to keep balanced a server and/or keep unfair use at a line. Although this are often "reasonable". Hostgator, for instance, has a 250,000 inode limit, plenty to start. By the time you reach the quota, you are very likely too big for ...

Various resources are required for hosting a website - including Storage, CPU and Bandwidth. "CPU" is generally a reference to the "processing recources". When in a shared environment, an environment where several sites are sharing resources, the CPU is a reference to the server's processor. Some sites require more processing because either: 1. they are ...

If you're making a subfolder, you should let all the files in the folder, rename the subpage.html to index.html and access as: randomdomain.com/subpage/ If you want a subpage (randomdomain.com/subpage.html) then drop ALL the files on the main folder OR drop in a subfolder (randomdomain.com/stuffforthesubpage/) and correct all the links on your subpage.html ...
