At the time this question was asked, this was not something RDS supported. Subsequently, though, AWS announced point-and-click copy of Amazon RDS DB Snapshots across AWS Regions. To launch an instance from a snapshot in a different region, you have to first copy the snapshot from the region where it was created and stored, into the target region. In the ...

There is no bandwidth limit, unless you are unwilling to pay for what you use. So, if you're asking whether there is a free bandwidth limit, then, yes. From the page you linked, the 12 month free tier includes this: 15 GB of bandwidth out aggregated across all AWS services This is bandwidth out from AWS toward the Internet, total from all services (...

You have to question some confusion, so I'll talk about ways to do a redirect from www to no-www: 1.Create two VirtualHost for two domains and use 301 redirect: NameVirtualHost *:80 <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName example.com DocumentRoot "/path/to/site" </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName www.example.com Redirect ...

You should have your website and your database in the same availability zone. It should be faster You are less exposed to the risk of an availability zone going down. When you spread your web server and database between two, your website goes down if either of them goes down. RDS has an option to have a hot spare of the database running in another ...

There is no secret methodology to be determined here, and no need to do what you are trying to do. You should bid what the machines are worth to you, because you will not pay any more than the market demands. Now, I previously believed Amazon would just charge me for the highest price right above the next lowest competitor automatically ... I'm not sure ...

I'm afraid I couldn't help you with the complications of setting up a Postfix mailserver, however with regards to your questions about the DNS records: The MX record you have created looks fine, provided that you have checked that (a) you have no other MX records with a priority less than 10, and (b) you have definately also got an A record setup for titan....

Your host name also needs to be added to /etc/hosts in 127.0.0.1 section. If you haven't rebooted since editing /etc/hostname you also need to set the hostname using the hostname command. This normally happens at bootup from /etc/hostname. Here is a script that I use to make sure the host name is set correctly on my Ubuntu ec2 instance: #!/bin/sh set -e ...

The advantage of CloudFront is that it serves your content geographically near to your users. A dedicated server is only in one location, but enables you to do lots of different things. You can't easily compare the two things.

The free tier isn't unlimited. If you go over the limits, how do you expect them to charge you? From the terms: When your free usage expires or if your application use exceeds the free usage tiers, you simply pay standard, pay-as-you-go service rates (see each service page for full pricing details).

At its root, this is almost certainly a database problem. The first thing to check is the indexes on the tables. If the full-text search is fast and the SELECT is slow, then there are most likely JOINS being performed that could benefit from indexes, possibly even composite indexes. You will need to profile the application (run a trace using SQL Profiler) ...

Doesn't matter what directory you run the command in, however it will save the sql dump file into the folder your currently in if using SSH to run the command.

Amazon has instructions for deploying WordPress on Elastic Beanstalk. The part that will prevent your problem is the section "Enable WordPress to Store Assets in Amazon S3". You have to install the "W3 Total Cache" plugin in WordPress and configure it to use "Amazon Simple Storage Service S3". When you have done that, plugins and themes will no longer ...

You can take steps to optimise the DB. For example, you can have full-text index fields which increases the reponse time for SQL search queries dramatically (particularly when it includes medium - large bodies of text). Beyond that, You need to have a look at what the problem is. Without access to source code it's difficult but it seems to me that, if the ...

I use SendGrid.com with Azure. There is an API, but the easiest way is to just use their SMTP server. Pricing is very reasonable, a couple of dollars for thousands of emails per month. I previously used Google Apps but there are limitations, like 1000 emails per days, which could be a problem if you have to send in bulk. Regarding receiving emails, I use ...

No. The reason this won't negatively impact your SEO is because of something called DNS. Basically DNS resolves your Domain Name back to your IP address. When you're setting up accounts on various sites for Webmaster tools, they're only concerned with the domain name. When they attempt to crawl the site, they will perform a DNS lookup to find the IP. If the ...

This is the Time to First Byte and is determined by how long it takes the application to return any information. You would need to provide more information on the system you are using for specifics but I would look first at the application setup rather than the hosting for optimisation. For example Magento can be a very "heavy" application without some form ...

This could be caused by the settings you are using in WordPress. When you first install WordPress it remembers the host name you used to run the installer, and uses that. Log in to your WordPress admin panel, go to Settings > General in the menu. Check that the fields for both 'WordPress Address (URL)' and 'Site Address (URL)' have the correct site ...

I found out that no specific server type is necessary in the case of using a custom Node.js server. You should be able to either leave the server type field blank or, in my case, select "other" as the type.

You are checking your DNS records by using Who.is. A big problem with this is that Who.is does not always perform a Whois lookup or DNS record check live, in real time. They also appear to cache Whois data and DNS data for an unspecified amount of time. To check your DNS records in real time, you'd want to use dig from the command prompt (if you have this ...

There appear to be two things you need to check. First edit /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/httpd.conf and make sure that the line loading mod_expires is not commented out (comments start with #). If it is, uncomment it and restart Apache. (source) If you are trying to set the expires headers in .htaccess you will also have to allow overrides in your ...

MX record: *.example.com matches everything but the naked (no subdomain) domain. So no MX for example.com. Aparently a friendly MTA will try the A record, which used to work for me, since it pointed to the EC2 handling my email. Long story short. Removed the *. from the MX record and it worked. I hope this will save someone a couple of hours of trying ...

I have just checked with several DNS lookup tools that the address is not tampered with in China. I have even loaded the website using a Chinese proxy. Again, all is normal. I suspect that the client simply has some adware infection. If there is some proxying going on, it's a small affair, one ISP at most.

Yes, AWS offers what they call AWS "WAF", short for Web Application Firewall. As the name implies, it's intended purpose is to help you protect your applications from exploits that are known to affect availability, security, as well as consume excessive resources. AWS WAF allows you to control traffic (allow/block) to your web apps by creating customized ...

Have you tried going to your domain registrar and pointing A records from example.com and www.example.com to your EC2 instance's IP address? This will make visitors to your domain name connect directly to your EC2 instance. No reason to use custom nameservers unless you are using a third party DNS service.

Cloud hosting has replaced a large portion of the hosting market. This site stats say that the Amazon and Google clouds host about 7% of sites. Cloud hosting is especially effective for large sites that need multiple servers, so the cloud hosting market share by dollars is much greater than the share by sites. Other big hosting companies have some benefits ...

KD - Good question. You should set permission 755 for all directories. Make sure that never set 777 permission for any folder/files. Also best thing is you set 755 for all word-press folders and 644 for all files. More details of permission : 777 – all can read, write and execute 644 - owner can modify file and everyone can read file

Your CNAME should be www.bracketfanatic.com pointing to bracketfanatic.com. But that may not be the only thing you need to set. DNS does not normally control redirects, however, there may be something we are not aware of that the host is doing. Make this change and see if that does not solve your problem. If not, then we will have to look further.
