Preferred Solution: What are the best web hosting companies? or mail hosting companies?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Going round in circles. Help. Who knows of a hosting company who has UK server, supports Frontpage expensions, is reliable in terms of support. Heart internet seems to be not too expensive and offers lots of options, but couldn't get a really straight answer from them about time taken in their system to get help if needed. Any experiences re. web hosting that would be useful to hear about?

Answer:web hosting companies

I currently use Streamline and Freedom 2 Surf.The former is fully featured (FP, PHP, CGI, ASP and so on; limitless bandwidth; good email features) and is pretty cheap. In fact, going any cheaper involves a big loss of features. £47 ex vat for two years on my chosen package. F2S is not as cheap, and has slightly less functional email; no auto-responders for example, though it does support forwarding. £48 ex vat per year if you include email.The support of both is quite good; F2S has a slight advantage as it has phone support, but the bang-for-your-buck of Streamline is hard to beat.

Hello my Inet guru people!

have a situation.

We are moving out main domain out of networksolutions to another host (many various reasons, beside them redirecting under construction domains to their own person search pages to generate revenue with out permission)

The issue is, when you move domain hosts, your website and email service may not work.. due to the move / transfer for DNS info.

Is there anyway to avoid this down time while the domain is moved?

Networksolution's says it can take UPTO 10 days to complete a domain move, and we did it already with some sites we have, and of course now that the move has started, and we cant access the domain on networksolutions site to edit anything they have it directing to one of their search landing pages!!! (********, our lwayers are already looking into legal action)

But our emails service was on and off, and the website not accessible and still isnt.

So, is there anything that can be done to eliminate / minimize down time during a domain transfer?

Answer:Swtiching Domain Hosting companies - avoiding down time?

The previous DNS settings should stay intact so most people would never have any downtime. But it's currently pointing to their DNS I guess you'll have to wait till it's with new registrar before you can change it.

I'm a network admin, but I don't know much about how the mail system works. Currently we have an 2 NT DNS servers with a horrible freeware program that takes mail in from the outside and forwards it to our Notes server.

What I am want to know is what is the program that others use to do this? Does windows 2000 server or advanced server have some built in function that does this?

I feel this needs to be broght to the attention of our malware alert community.  Today I discovered that my windows deluxe hosting account with Godaddy was hacked on 11-17-14.  The hack was basically a  full access to my directories including all my sub folder directories that are alias to my other sites I host.  Every directory and subdirectory that contained HTM or HTML files was modified with a footer hyperlink Data.  What makes this even more interesting is that I am not alone.  Doing some of my own Legwork being a former Network Admin I realized by keyword google search that there are numerous perhaps hundreds if not more domain names that reside on Godaddy Servers that are also hacked with the exact same circumstance that I am in.  So I would assume that there is a common issue and quite possibly a breach on godaddy's side.  I have yet to see if there are common setups such as wordpress, joomla or other scripts that have the potential to be a way for an attack like this to happen.  However I removed all of my joomla based hosting due other unrelated issues and moved them to my linux hosting servers.  All I have left on my windows hosting is some old custom asp scripting and some custom PHP scripts that I wrote.  Its possible that these could be a path of compromise but I have a hunch that this hack was done from another direction.  He...

Cracker tries to scan ports to find out which of them are open.Because the administrator of computer can enter the hacker's Internetprotocol (IP) address into the suspect list, that is why cracker'sfind , it is wise to conduct scanning from computer other than hisown. To this end, crackers set up Web sites on free servers (Free WebHosting providers) that allow them to use PHP and PERL scripts.

I'm supposedly the architect of this mess and yet it seems overwhelming even to me.

Shouldn't really be that hard to set up some e-mails but apparently it is.

I have one hosting account

They provide e-mail to domains that are set up there. However they cannot provide “.ca” domains which I needed.

So I'm dealing with for a couple of domains

And then just to complicate matters I'm also dealing with “” for yet a couple of more domains. I was lured there by low prices but found out after I registered the domains that they do not provide e-mail support.

Instead what they do is refer you out to Google.

At Google, (apparently) you can have all of your mails in one place (which I want).

I want to be able to go to one web site and access my mail online and send mail from that one page by only switching the outgoing mail name.

Over the past week I've talked to tech support from all of these different companies, many different techies at each location, and got lots of different opinions and “guidance”.

At first I was told to change the name servers so that they point to godaddy but in doing so, that knocked off the e-mail from that particular domain provider.

Later I was told that all I need to do is change the ‘A Record’.

On the other hand at Google sends you a verification mail to verify that you own the domain and thereby automatically changes some records to aim towards Google.

In the time between now and when we get the exchange server up we're going to need our web host to provide us with e-mail, pop3 preferred, and then in the future we'll just want them to configure their mail server to just queue the messages for us until our server comes back and then start sending the messages back to us.

We don't host our own e-mail server in-house, and usually have it done by our web host provider.

Our first webhost provider sold out to another company, and it went down-hill.

We moved to a new host, midPhase. Well, they're run by a bunch of Russians (all of the System Admins I dealt with were russian). We had major connectivity issues with sending and recieving, and delayed messages by SpamAssasin.

We switched to a new host, which was my choice. Everything is fine, but we get delayed e-mails because of SpamAssasin. We can get e-mails just fine, but due to the high load that the server is processing, it takes a while (anywhere from 1 hour to 4 days). We also get some "Too many SMTP connections" as well.

I'm looking for a company that can have reliable, always up, quick, error-free e-mail for our company. Don't need Exchange, just basic POP3/IMAP access. 25 users.

Any suggestions?

Answer:Business class e-mail hosting

Have you tried any NON mom&pop shops. They're are plenty our there to google and there is a sticky here on the forum for hosting. Everywhere I look there are places with guaranteed uptime, spam filtering, and all of the other headache stuff dealt with on there end. You can bet that if millions of users send emails through them spread out over thousands of companies, they will be able to lead you in the direction you desire.

We have a guy in texas manage ours and it is by no means a large corporation with a contract and we are fine. We do pay a hefty $350/month but if we ever have a problem its cleared up within a day, the other 99% of email problems are due to user stupidity and the need for 3rd party programs that they aren't smart enough to work anyways.

Dear all:
I work as an IT specialist in a very "old fashion" company. Currently 80% above of our systems are something like Win XP Home. I guess you all can imagine how hard it is to maintain the systems before I convince the company to spend extra few thousand dollars to upgrade to Windows XP Professional.

I might upgrade the ram in my Intel 865 GBG, Currently I have 512mb which are Kingston DDR333. I took a look on the intel site and got this URL for a list of compatible ram
I know your not supposed to mix and match speeds but what about different companies? Also I never heard of the companies listed are they reliable?

Answer:Using RAM from different companies??

Whatever memory you have will work at the speed of the slowest module. The companies do not matter, except on some newer ASUS motherboards and ASUS laptops.

Enter your computer brand and model, into a search at, where you will get a trustworthy report of what memory modules your system can handle.
If a faster module will work reliably, Crucial will list it.
DDR200 is PC1600
DDR266 is PC2100
DDR333 is PC2700
DDR370 is PC3000
There may be others I have forgotten.
Generally the brand changes do not matter much, though some memory is made poorly from bins of chips, and that is called "third tier" memory. It is not tested before it is sold, although it may have a warranty. You become the tester. When it fails, they give you more.

All of the above are interchangeable in most DDR machines... if they are all the same, and not mixed with some PC2700 and some PC2100 or whatever. But the only way to know is to try, and that gets expensive. Since you are using PC2700 memory, use that or faster, but try to have all modules be the same speed. Sell your existing memory, and buy the larger modules.

However, if Crucial says it fits your brand and model, it fits, except in ASUS motherboards... regardless of the memory brand.

AVOID Value RAM, as it has slower timings and latency.
You will not go wrong with Crucial, Corsair, Kingston, Infineon, Samsung, or the memory you were recommended, Apacer or Avant.

I have a slight dilemma that I was hoping someone here could help me with. Our company was recently purchased and we are getting ready to move to our parent companies building as it is larger and newer. However, they do not want to get rid of our companies domain name, departments, etc.. and they want to mix our employees within their respective departments at the headquarters.
The setup would be:
Two IT departments with separate locations (separate buildings) all interconnected by one 10mg line. Two separate domains the parent company (I will call and the child company (company
Accountants from both company1 and company2 in the same locations mixed together, as well as all the other departments (aside from IT).
How would this be accomplished? I know that I could build trusts between the two domains, but I am a bit hazy on how it would work if I had two accountants sitting next to each other, one from company1, and the other from company2.
Also, would I be better off using routers in a situation like this, to create routes between the two sites?


Answer:Co-Mingling Two Companies Domains

I have run into the very same problem (more from previous IT peeps not knowing anything).

I would recommend a domain trust as a restructuring of AD could (depending on company size) be a challenge. However, it is something that will have to happen eventually.

I would look to the long term and not the short, and try and plan something for the next 3 years. I have found that today's problems are often negated by tomorrows growing plans.

Are routers necessary? It depends: Obviously you will have broadcast isolation, which could improve network traffic. In the case where they are in seperate buildings i would probably put a router in (unless you are talking very few clients) because it can simplify (and broaden) possible connections for the inside and outside connections. Also, if you are worried about 2 accountants sitting side by side (security issues?) you could simply put them on VLANs.

Also, you could run the two domains side by side and the employees (with trusts) could simply pick which domain to log into.

There is no right or wrong answer here, but the important thing to remember is that whatever you do needs to groove with future plans. Keep that in mind so you aren't re-inventing the wheel!

Has anyone used the likes of these click here or click here with an ADSL connection? Someone mentioned to me there may be a problem with the carrier these non BT companies use.

Answer:ADSL & Non BT Phone Companies

You will still need a BT (or Kingston) line to access these companies networks. You could not get ADSL from them.

I have to assume there are companies out there that certify an application as to what the minimum system requirements are, just like you see on PC game boxes. I have some people that have developed a web-based game and are in dire need of finding out just where their hardware requirements lie. To take it one step further, they are hoping whoever provides this service may be able to find unoptimized code, as they feel that it may be sluggish more because of this than outright hardware needs. Can anyone suggest a company or at least tell me what you would consider this? I tried googling "software certification", but got way too much fluff regarding paper certifications.

Thanks gang.

Answer:Software Certification Companies??

I've worked closely with a few companies beta testing a few different games. During this time, system requirements would often come up. From discussions with developers, I often got the impression that they would set their own requirements.

Thats just and observation on my experiences, but it's all I've got!

What do companies do when an employee returns a laptop or exchanges an old one for a new one? What would they do with Instant Messenger chat logs, favorites, emails, and any other personal information that may have been left on the computer?

If the computer is old and they are probably not going to give it to another employee, what would they do with it at that point?

Does anyone know what policies are, or if you've worked in the business what are standard practices ( what really goes on?)

Answer:What do companies do with returned laptops?

It would depend on the company and their awareness of security/privacy issues, also their policy on personal use of business laptops. Plus their budget for supporting those policies.
A good company should ensure that all personal info was cleared out before giving it to another employee.
If it's being discarded, the hard drive should be securely wiped to remove personal or commercially sensitive info.

I am having problems with an office setup that was fine for awhile. I had the DSL line going to a router and then the router was cabled to two other computers and 2 network printers for there network. Then another company came in and need internet access but needed to be on there own network for there network printers/copier and with wireless access for there laptop. So I added a wireless router and cabled all there devices to there wireless router. I cabled a wire from the first router to the wireless router so that the second company had internet access. It seems to work sometimes and not others. Sometimes its like the company 2 wireless router tries to act as the DHCP. What is a good solution to networks like this.

Company 1

Company 2

Answer:2 Networks/companies 1 DSL line

For complete isolation, I'd use three routers. Each company has a local router, and the WAN ports of the two are plugged into the LAN ports of the 3rd router that is connected to the DSL line. I've used this configuration, and it's normally trouble-free.

What is the difference in the different graphics cards such as Hercules card based on Kyro and other cards? Others I'm curious about are the Voodoo cards, ATI cards, etc. How are they all different in architecture and what is each card good at doing?

Answer:Difference between graphics companies???

A good read for a start would be the article by accelenation which I posted a link to here
That should give you a bit of background information about the different chip manufacturers since some make their own cards and others just produce the chips and the likes of Asus, VisionTek, Gainward, Elsa, Leadtek etc. make the actual cards. ATI make their own cards but recently have had Hercules produce cards based on their Radeon GPUs (Hercules also have done Kyro based cards in the past).

ATI and Matrox have always been renouned for good 2D clarity whilst Nvidia are more well known for powerful 3d cards. Its only recently that ATI have had a good stab at coming back into the powerhouse category of cards. Then you have 3DLabs who Creative recently bought who specialise in cards for business use.

As I said check out the linked article as its a very informative read.

I'm looking for good monitor (LCD) companies. Please list all of the major ones here (ones you will recommend), as I am not to sure of which ones are good and which aren't.

Thank you!

Answer:Good monitor companies?


Everyone pretty much makes a decent LCD now a days, it just depends on how picky you are with resolutions, particular brightness and what ever.

As far as gaming, display lag with LCDs is a thing of the past. You cant find a monitor with more than a 16 ms response time. Wich is the minimun for gaming I believe.

As far as really nice monitors Id have to say Dell makes one of the best LCDs.
Acer, Viewsonic, Sony, NEC.

It also seems that they have refined the manufacturing proccess on LCD panals. I have ordered over 15 for people of various size and brand and on each of them I had no dead pixels, wich means im either lucky or there getting good. Dead pixels up to 10 a year or so ago were very common. And you could not return them if you had any under 6. I dont see that policy on retail sites anymore. So things are getting good as far as LCD.

Answer:how do big companies make there cd-rom disks???

Yeah- you can burn one. Just close the session and it will be a CDROM. A CDRW just signifies a different type of media; CDRW discs can be erased. CDR (or CDROM) discs cannot be erased. Anyone with a CD burner can create a CD. Just burn it. If you need to create a lot of discs, you can get a duplicator that is essentially a tower with one CDROM drive and up to 20 (or more) CD burners (CDRW drives). The source goes in the CDROM drive and blanks go in the other drives. You push a button and it burns copies. They are expensive and you DO NOT need a PC to use it. They are stand alone machines and the duplication software is written to some chips in the machine so you don't need a monitor or Windows or a keyboard or mouse. Just a power cord and an outlet, and a stack of blanks. But this is only for mass production; like I said.... ANYONE with a PC and CD burner can create CDROM discs.

How Annoying Adware Makes Companies Money:
SOURCE: (ARTICLE DATE: 5th Aug 2016)

Researchers from New York University and Google teamed up to figure out just how adware operates on a user?s computer. They will present a paper about their work next week at the USENIX Security Symposium in Austin, Texas.

The term adware (the combination of ?advertisement? and ?malware?) usually refers to advertisements that are either aggressively displayed on a screen or surreptitiously downloaded to a user?s computer. Once they?re on a computer, the adware can do things like collect a user?s information to then push more targeted ads, or bombard her with pop-ups for legitimate products

Adware is shockingly common, which makes it extremely lucrative?the researchers cite reports that estimate that adware companies raked in $460 million in 2014 alone, nearly triple the income of companies that generate malware. And though for years Google has been tracking some of the sites where adware commonly lurks, they don?t know much about the companies propagating the ads...

Wouldn't you go insane after doing this on 100 or more computers?

I've just about had it with my network...complete garbage.

So originally, I had a verizon dsl modem hooked up to a Belkin router. The router was brand new when I moved into my place. I bought it the first week. Anyways, to keep a long story short, my internet disconnects constantly while on wireless. The streaming ability seems to fluctuate rapidly. So I called Verizon and they sent me a wireless router/modem. I disconnected all my old stuff and hooked up this new router. The performance has improved but not all issues have been fixed. For instance, some youtube videos either take an incredibly long time to download or just don't download at all. Or even get part of the way and then stop (kind of makes me wonder if its port numbers!?).

When I originally had the issue on my Belkin router and verizon modem, I tried the laptop in the house (I believe it was an onboard card) and I had the same problem. So I unhooked my computer and hooked it up next to the router and plugged it directly in. The internet surprisingly works fine. Doesn't stutter at all. Yet whenever I go wireless it takes a dive.

So at this point, the only thing I can figure is my adapter is bad or there is something physically wrong with the line. I've tried all other options, and this diagnosis seems the most plausible.

Are they also offering a warranty to keep the power at a steady voltage in your home?? because here in Florida, the power is VERY inconsistent, and your computer WILL be messed up if you aren't using a Battery Backup! Why don't they tell the customer this when they sell the computer?? It would be an add-on to the sale! Instead, the customer buys the warranty- (which doesn't cover personal data loss!!!) and then has to wait around for the warranty company to diagnose the problem.

Hi all!

Here's one for ya. I work in a corporate IT department and we're looking at changing our current remote support solution from Goto Assist (Citrix based) to TeamViewer.

The problem I have is...

The end client download for Goto Assist is provided via a Java Applet which downloads and installs the client. Due to the use of Java, this isn't blocked by most web firewalls. Just a case of allowing the Javascript to run and off you go.

TeamViewer however, only allows the client to be downloaded via a .exe file. Obviously, due to security of most corproate firewals, this would be blocked.

I'm trying to think of a way of being able to allow 3rd Party companies to download and install the application. Sending via e-mail is a no go, due to Outlook's built in security. I have got a .MSI version of the application, but again this seems to be blocked by most e-mail clients.

I'm wondering if anyone's come accross this issue before? Basically a way of a 3rd Party client to download and install an application through their web security.

One idea I've thought off is some way of creating and hosting a Java Applet (much like that of Go To Assit) which masks the download of the exe.

Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated

OK I should have learnt the first time!!! BEWARE.
