This may answer your question: Do web hosts really mean 'Unlimited'? Terms and conditions of different web hosting services allow for different storage spaces. Some will charge you when you exceed a certain limit. In fact, they aren't even required to disclose the limit you have on some web hosting services. No hosting service is 100% free - there is ...

as @stephen said, you may want to use the reverse proxy option. in nginx that would be using something like: server { listen 80; server_name public.com www.public.com; location / { proxy_pass http://private.com; proxy_redirect off; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr; ...

I experienced similar issue on one of the VPSes I have with RoseHosting. I contacted their technical support and they fixed the issue for me and everything has been good since then. Anyway, when I asked what was the problem, they said that it was related to the dcachesize limit which represents the maximum size of filesystem-related caches limit for my ...

Well in my opinion paid hosting or in other words site authority may effect the SEO process, because if someone is using a free hosting with same contents will get less traffic then one who are using paid hosting. The answer is simple you paid for the domain it's your right to get visitors more then free domains, as the site authority matters in terms of SEO ...

I used to be a web host and there is no such thing as unlimited. Period. It is physically impossible. Here are two examples from back in the day. A host offers 100gig of disk storage. You say great and buy but only use about 8 gig. And so do the others that buy. Hosts count on this and over sell the storage they actually have available. With the new ...

Unlimited is BULLSHIT. It is simply NOT possible to provide unlimited disk space. Always read the Terms of Service of a host when buying a plan with "unlimited disk space". They often let you use a lot, but when they begin to notice (you're beginning to use too much in their opinion) they will find a way to suspend or terminate your account. Never, ever use ...

Unlimited is a gimmick. If they provide you with unlimited space and bandwidth, they will set a cap over what you can store. If you have backup files OR large files uploaded, they will ask you to download/delete it. They will ask you to store files only if they are for web use.

Step 1. Create the same mailboxes at the new host that you have at the old host. If you don't those accounts will no longer exist and new emails will bounce back to the sender Step 2. Change your DNS records to point to your new host Step 3. Due to DNS propagation delays you will still need to check the old host for emails for up to two days. You can't use ...

This is relatively easy to do. Using example.com, you have: An A record for the example.com A CNAME (as an alias) pointing www to example.com (www is a sub-domain) --where www = example.com -- or -- An A record for www.example.com To have sub-domain.example.com you would have: An A record for sub-domain.example.com --where the IP address is for the new ...

Here is the simple steps to change the hosting panel. You already have the different account one for domain and second one hosting. Simple find the name servers in new hosting panel and modify the new hosting name servers in domain panel instead of old name servers. Then, your domain and hosting panel both will be integrated. Now download the total hosted ...

Here you are not specified the hosting and domain was in same account or different account. If it is a different account better to get the domain panel. Then you can remove the old hosting Name servers and add the New hosting name servers the problem is solved If it is single account first contact the person who is under the account. If the person is not ...

Godaddy has had some DNS issues going on in recent months. In general they have quite a bit of reported slow response + downtime style hiccups over time as well. I personally would not use them considering for the price there are far more stable hosts. When choosing hosting there are generally 3 things to think about: Is a cheap hosting plan going to be ...

Yes use HTTPS everywhere, add a HSTS policy, use only TLS, etc. HTTPS already is "the standard" and it's plenty fast enough with a proper server setup...it's just that most folks don't take the time or wanna spend the money to use it. If you consider time to encode a drawback, consider the results of the encoding (good encryption) as a drawback too. I ...

Perform a 301 redirect. Since both your websites are using wordpress platform, install this plugin, https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-301-redirects/ (the best out there) Install the plugin in your old wordpress site and redirect the urls you want to the new website. Thus you wont loose your visitors nor be penalized by Search engines. Note: You need to ...

You have to make that trade off based on your business needs. A VPS is shared with others, which means that you are sharing the server resources. The biggest risk here in my opinion lays that you can't control what other people use the server for. This can affect the performance of your application and cause unexplainable bugs that you can't trace back ...

If your website is hosting a forum or a blog that allows comments to articles you've posted and you allow registrations and postings without some mechanism for verifying the registrations are coming from a human rather than an automated script, you will likely get an enormous amount of spam posted on your site, since there are many systems out there on the ...

You just got introduced to bots :) Looks like you are running a vanilla version of software like phpBB or WordPress etc. What are bots? (Source: Wikipedia) Bots are an army of (mostly compromised) machines doing whatever their bot head asks them to do. In most cases, they just post spam messages with links. Read more about the command and control ...

If one tries to have one machine do the work of two, some parts of the machine will need to be larger but run at the same speed, some can stay the same size but will need to run faster, and some will need to be larger and faster. The extent to which it makes sense to combine the roles of smaller machines into a larger one, or split the roles of larger ...

Let's take the problem at small scale. A tiny office with one server running mail, ActiveDirectory, file share, and the web site for the company. Hackers hit it and you have to reboot because IIS is messed up. Or Exchange needs an update and a reboot. Or Active Directory got corrupted. Any of these isolated "one service is down" problems affects the ...

Size limit. We like to pretend that a single box with multiple processors, memory chips and disks is uniform. This isn't entirely true, but it's true enough if your numbers don't get too big. There are technical limits on heat, energy, proximity etc. which means there'll always be a practical limit on how big a single server can be. Scalability - there's a ...

From Rear Admiral Grace Hopper: On the building of bigger computers: "In pioneer days they used oxen for heavy pulling, and when one ox couldn't budge a log, they didn't try to grow a larger ox. We shouldn't be trying for bigger computers, but for more systems of computers." source

Stephen explains the major consideration to make when deciding on a systems architecture: the tradeoff in vertical and horizontal scaling. I'll add a few other considerations: Separation of concerns: you mention multiple radically different systems: reverse proxies, DB, content servers, etc. From a maintenance and security standpoint it is clearly ...

A single powerful server can only be upgraded so far. Once you have the most powerful server available, your site cannot grow more without splitting it between servers or making it more efficient. There is also the cost factor. A single server that is super powerful may cost ten times as much as two servers that are half as powerful. You want to be able ...
