comment Is recomended to use BPG to a website?
I wouldn't advise it due to its proprietary nature and low market penetration; the small benefits you'd gain in image quality could be offset just by using lower JPEG compression at the cost of slightly more bandwidth.

comment Why am I receiving a DNS look-up error when requesting a web page from an AWS Windows server?
By "site works on localhost," do you mean it loads using the actual domain name, or using localhost? Also, you probably want port 443 rather than 334 - maybe just a typo? A DNS failure wouldn't have anything to do with that though. If you try to ping the domain name remotely, does it give you an IP address? Note that it doesn't matter if ICMP is blocked, ping should still resolve the name.

comment How to redirect a website to a holding page with a link back to the original website
If the site is hosted at both www.example.com and example.com (no www), you could change the DNS for only one of those hostnames (really "www" and ".", or the root host) to point to the new server and leave the other pointing to the old. The reason the site doesn't listen on the IP address is because the web server uses name-based virtual hosting. This allows any number of domains to share the same IP.

comment Are there Hosting supporting protocol smarter than FTP?
The use case you describe of finding changed files on a website is definitely not what FTP was designed for, so naturally it is inefficient for this task. FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, indicating that it is optimized to transfer files from one host to another, and it is very efficient for doing that.

comment How to deal with users passwords on website re-design?
You're correct, Drupal 6 uses MD5 with no salt. If OpenCart 1.5 does the same then yes, you can just copy the hashes - they're nothing more than fixed-length strings.

@ink, I've been with dreamhost.com for about 5 years and have zero complaints or desire to move. And this is coming from someone who was CTO of a web hosting company.

Ah, now I understand. Was actually editing my answer because I had some additional thoughts on that.

Yeah, not sure what I was thinking. That's what I get for insomniac posting.

comment Home Domain router question
@user3590149 - the answer is not related to DNS. It explains what to do with the hostnames after DNS resolves them to your IP address. When you request a website using a browser, it sends the hostname as a HTTP 1.1 header even though it already knows the IP so the web server knows which site you are requesting. This is known as "virtual hosting" and is the most efficient way to use a single IP address for multiple domains.

@user3614715 - I rephrased your first sentence. Is that what you were asking?

comment SpamAssassin penalising DK Signed
You could try sending to check-auth@verifier.port25.com. This will reply with the details of basic SA processing. I tried it and they do use the DKIM module and not DomainKeys. See port25.com/support/authentication-center/email-verification for more details.

comment SpamAssassin penalising DK Signed
Just realized what you were asking - by website's SA setup, I mean SpamAssassin on isnotspam.com.

comment SpamAssassin penalising DK Signed
Yes, the evidence is the presence of DK_SIGNED. I checked the source of both modules, and only DomainKeys has a header with that name.

comment How to configure DNS for hosting a domain with 000webhost.com when purchased from whois.com?
OP can still use whois.com for DNS if it's changed back - this is a basic registrar service included with domain registration and shouldn't add cost. It's a matter of choice/convenience; if the OP has more domains registered with whois.com than hosted with 000webhost - e.g. they are spread among different hosting providers, it may be easier to use whois.com. Obviously the opposite also holds true.

comment Can I use Google AdWords to advertise on my competitors sites after that visitor left my site?
Additionally, there is no way to tell if a user has visited a competitor's site without a third-party cookie tracking their activity, which means the competitor would need to be using the same tracking service and allow access to the data from that service.
