Hosting a website at your house. Good/Bad idea? Hardware questions as well.

Question: Hosting a website at your house. Good/Bad idea? Hardware questions as well.

I've been kickin around the idea of making a website and I want to host it at my house. I don't expect many hits realistically, I can't see their being more than 10-30 hits a day at it's peak. I'm not too concerned about bandwidth and upload speed. It's not going to be more than 1-3 pages with mostly text with some pictures, so I won't be hosting any downloads.

Do any of you host websites at your house? What are the major security concerns? I plan on using Ubuntu 9.04 for it. This is the hardware I was thinking of using, I didn't think it needed to be that powerful and I wanted it to use the least amount of energy possible since it'd be 24/7. - Winsis Wi-01 Black SGCC / ABS Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 200W Power Supply - Computer Cases - Intel BOXD945GCLF Intel Atom processor 230 Intel 945GC Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo - Motherboard / CPU / VGA Combo - Crucial 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory - Seagate ST9120817AS 120GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive - Laptop Hard Drives - Sony Optiarc Black 8X DVD-ROM 24X CD-R 24X CD-RW 24X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA Slim Combo - CD / DVD Burners

I would assume an Atom would be sufficient.

Preferred Solution: Hosting a website at your house. Good/Bad idea? Hardware questions as well.

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.)

Answer: Hosting a website at your house. Good/Bad idea? Hardware questions as well.

really to host a website it isn't difficult at all, grab a good copy of ubuntu server edition and apache. the only thing that really limits you is bandwidth. Also if you don't plan on getting many hits then hardware is a minimum. The atom processor would do just fine in that case, but if you ever got a lot more traffic then it might become a problem.

I used to host a website from my house on a modded xbox...worked fantastically.

What are the pros and cons of hosting my own website (other than it sounds fun)? What software and hardware would be required?It would be overkill since the site I'm building is small and doesn't have much that is complicated - maybe 100 jpeg photos, and a few video clips, and a searchable database.Christopher

Answer:Hosting my own website - is it a good idea?

It's very difficult to host a site on your own computer, would mean you need a fixed IP address from your ISP - most of which don't allow you to run a computer as a server, would mean leaving your computer switched on all the time and has obvious security risks from hackers. It's far better to go with a reliable hosting company like click here and leave all the hassle of ensuring your website is online and working to them.Matt

Know just a little bit about this type of networking soo.
Moved into a new house and each room has cat5 ports.
Got into the box with all the wires and the guy said that the panel that is wired up is not the correct one. The way it is wired up now it acts like one long cable, which totally sux. I can't communicate with any rooms.
So my question is, is this the correct panel that I need to swith out with? Cat5e Wall Mount Patch Panel 568
Not worried too much about it fitting all perfect.

Here is what is in there now.

I can fix all the wires, cuz they are all mixed up with telephone that's on the left.

Once it get all plugged in, do the wires out the front go into a switch does the panel act like a switch?

Answer:Wired House Hardware Questions

You need to repunch everything onto a patch panel. Mount the patch panel and then you will run cat5/6 from each patch panel to your data switch (Hopefully mounted within a foot or two). Then you have a network.

That existing box was setup so could punch an analog/POTS line down to pins 4/5 of that first or second 110 block, then provide dial tone to all the rooms that have a jack.

HiI'm in the process of doing research prior to building my own website. The site will be essentially an informative one with maybe a couple of dozen links off the home page to different (related) subjects. After seeing advice given on this and other forums I'm of a mind to use Adobe Dreamweaver for the build. My question (one of a million going around in my head at the moment)is this: Is it a good idea to have these linked pages "Blogger" pages as they are free. I ask this because I assume the cost of hosting a site with many pages is significsntly more than a site with only one page. I must emphasise that this is assumption based on very little knowledge.Also will there be a difference in the loading times and would they automatically open in a new window etc.Thank youNot Waving.

Answer:My First Website - are Blogger pages a good idea?

The cost of hosting a website depends on the package you get frm the hosting provider.In broad terms you will be charging depends on the following:Storage availabilityBandwidth useageNumber of email addresses availableNumber of domains to be hostedNumber of sub domains requiredShared or dedicated serversand a few others...I don't know of any company that limits the number of pages you can have, although anyone is welcome to point one out to me!So, the number of pages you have is likely to be inconsequential as long as you don't go over your storage allowance.There are companies that offer unlimited storage and bandwidth, which may be suitable for you depending on exactly what you want from you site.

On my Website I have decided to put the disqus commenting system (as for feedback) in the footer of the site. I think it is a good idea, but I'm not too sure if it may turn out a bit confusing? What is your opinions? As for a professional site kind of point of view, a site you'd go to every day such as here, what do you think of this idea? Unique, clever, convenient, confusing, not a good idea?
I feel I am improving such a lot with my websites, and looking back at the very first website I made back in 2010, to how I am now making websites, I just don't recognise it as a site I may of made lol. I know I am using website builders so I'm not actually making the site, I'm just well doing everything other than the coding and having it on my own server, so I'm basically designing and //i think I am getting better with designing my sites.
Thanks for any feedback, (hoping you FE as you are experienced with websites so you will be able to give a clear answer if having the commenting system how I've put it is a good idea)
Jase Wolf

Answer:Could I have some opinions on if this is good idea or may turn out a bit confusing for my website?

What is it that you expect people to comment on?
One of the problems with inviting feedback in this way is that you'll be open to abuse. You're running the risk that people will simply use false email addresses, and leave inappropriate messages.
If you want to invite discussions about the subject matter on your site you would be better to use a forum system that requires a registration process.

I plan to build a system with an Intel Core 2 E6600 with a NVidia 8800 GTX and was wondering if there is any big problem with running my copy of Windows 2000 Professional I already have. I still use it with my 3Ghz Pentium 4 and it's been perfect for me.

2K had it's time in the sun, now it's past. Get XP SP2 on there and you'll be fine. As most others will tell you, with any 64 bit OS you're going to encounter issues with gaming and drivers. I personally don't have any issues at all on this Core 2 Duo running at 1.66 GHz and using Intel GMA950 onboard graphics, so that monster you're going to build would absolutely scream with XP or Vista for most intents and purposes.

But sticking with 2K at this stage in the "game" of Windows and computer hardware would be like putting racing stripes and a Recaro seat on a Segway...

Dropbox + Sugarsync - running both at the same time - good idea or bad idea?
Will they both be thrashing my machine and eating up lots of CPU like a hungry monster?


Answer:Running Sugarsync + Dropbox at the same time - good idea or bad idea?

You can be specific about what each actually synchronizes so I don't see that as a CPU issue. However if using both over the Internet with one of the more substantial data plans to sync, I would wonder which gets priority or how well they share the upload bandwidth. Wouldn't be so good if one was always grabbing it to sync in the off-load times and the other just kept waiting and waiting for its turn.

Hi there

For a couple of weeks I have not been able to access our business website or the hosting company website from our main office. I can access all other websites.

I can ping the website with no loss through a command prompt. Other people can access the website no problem and I can access it fine from my pc at home.

I have checked the hosts file and the address is not blocked.

I have contacted the ISP and the hosting company and they can find nothing wrong, so I am assuming the problem lies with me.

Does anyone have any ideas why this may be happening?

Many thanks in advance

Question: website/hosting

is it possible to have a web site (just one or two pages) without having anyone "host" it - this would be just a personal thing for family/friends to look at. I aim to use software that "does everything" for me to make it as easy as possible, would that software (not chosen yet) also put the page on the net at the click of a button? Any advice gratefully received. I did have the idea of password protecting the site and saw a post a few days ago about that which was very helpful.


often has space specifically for this. Or else there are free sites such as piczo click here or myspace click here or - if you want it a bit more grown up - lycos tripod click here

3. If someone registers at then will I be able to host for him? Or does he have to transfer?

Answer:website hosting

All that you need is a reseller account with some one who is into hosting. I can provide you with one. You don't need to be a registrar. I can set up a reseller account within 48 hours.

Then after logging in with user name and password, you can start making hosting accounts and giving it to people.

You can host for domain names registered with or any other. All that you need to update is nameservers (DNS) depending on what your hosting service provider gives you.

Question: Hosting Website

I have had a website built in PrestaShop and it appears that there is a problem having it hosted by 123 Reg without a great deal of problems according to my web designer.I have put a number of question to the hosting site and am awaiting a fuller answer.Has anyone used PrestaShop and 123Reg and if so are they aware of any problems?

Answer:Hosting Website

You say your web designer says there are a great deal of problems, but what are those problems? PrestaShop uses a combination of php and MySql, which many content management systems use. I can't see any particular reason why that should cause a "great deal of problems".I note that PrestaShop says on their site there are issues with certain versions of php and Mysql.Perhaps that's where the problem lays. That said, I use MySql version 5.0.51a and php version 5.2.6-1 on my Debian server without issues, albeit with WordPress.I appreciate I'm not giving you a direct answer to your question, as I don't use PrestaShop and quite honestly, before your post, had never heard of it. But without knowing what your problems are likely to be, it's difficult to make any reasonable stab at the likely outcome.If it's simply an incompatibility of the versions of php, MySql and PrestaShop, you may have no choice, but to use a different host that is compatible with PrestaShop.

I want to be able to surf and dl at the speed i am paying for. Just a little info about my setup. I will have one computer (XP pro) running downstairs by the cable modem that will not be wireless, and two computers upstairs that will be wireless.

Hmm, your asking for information on being a webserver owner, network admin, hardware specialist, and web developer all in one. Well, I hope you have a pen and paper available. This looks like its gonna be a long topic.

To me, this have been a wonderful dream of mine to have my own webserver and run a website. I have so far had to learn how to do this stuff for as cheap as possible. I am currently learning how to run Apache, MySQL, and PHP. I also have had previous networking training from reading the books my brother, the network admin, brought home. I have had lots of experiences setting up home networks for people through routers, switches, and such. Learning tcp/ip, port forwarding, trigger ports, etc. I have responsibilities to run a small website. Its just basic HTML, but I have reciently been given to the task to learn using Java Script and CSS. These all sound useful and will hopefully help me in the future job outlook.

With that being said, I have been working on all these projects for my own personal use for over 2 years now. I am a slow learner. At times it easy to pickup stuff, other times I have to read it 6-7 times to get it correct. Unfortunately getting the answers in one post on a message board seems a bit tough. I would suggest that you post what you know so far now on these subjects so that we can target the specific areas to help you out. I will be glad to pipe up when ever I have that one answer that I actually know.

Does anyone know if this is a complete version on disk or is it just a download with just enough to get a site built. Also what do they mean by F/P extensions.Any help and advice on this or other packages would be appreciated.

Answer:Design and hosting a new website

and yes, you will receive a CD. The FrontPage 2003 offer is for the full version, so you have no need to worry about functionability.Frontpage extensions are server-side components that are installed by a web host. The extensions enable the more advanced FP facilities - such as web-forms, hover buttons,discussion forums and animated test effects - to work. You can publish a FrontPage site to a server without the extensions, but the special components won't work.I wouldn't delay too long with this decision, the 1&1 promotion is only valid while stocks last, and it's been running a while now.

It also provides a powerful and easy to use web-based control panel which you can use to manage your website. I hope this would help you.

My website is hosted privately on a friend's server. It is becoming increasingly unreliable and I want to find another host, but still keep my domain name, for which I pay an annual fee. Is there any way that I can get free cloud hosting for my files and still have them accessible as a website?

Answer:cloud hosting of my website

What I do, although it may not be feasible for you, is to use my ISP's free webspace for my site and then have my personal domain direct to that site.

Hello friends.
I decided to start my own site just for the hell, maby also to learn a bit of HTML and Flash :giddy: but I am not interested in that "angelfire" crap.
Now my question(s) are:
I understand that I first have to register a domain name
Second, I have to register with a web hosting service such as
But my real question is, whats the difference between the "Windows Hosting" va "Unix Hosting"
Another thing I wish to know, if I register both a domain name and a domain hosting service, is there anything ealse I should be aware of? such as do I need a PC, or does the web hosting service provide that, the website IP and all other necessities.
Let me know. :stickout:


Answer:Web Hosting New-b questions.

After you have your domain name, the chosen hosting service provides you with the choice to use "Windows Hosting", meaning you are using Frontpage, MySQL, PHP and/or ASP as programming languages, in addition to normal HTML/CSS/JS.
If you don't use Frontpage & Co, the "Unix" hosting type will be fine (and cheaper normally).
You only get the Server-Space and perhaps some software (try and check their offerings), and as with most hosting companies, pretty good customer support. Your new host provides the IP for the new domain.

You need your own PC, with an ASCII editor such as Notepad. There are tons of commercial HTML-editors out, both free and paid for. Most popular is CoffeeCup.
I prefer EditPad Pro from It does all the color-coding just as good, it is no-clutter, multi-tabbed, unlimited in file-size etc.

You will also need an FTP-program to transfer your file to the server. CoffeeCup again provide even a freebie. Well-known others include WS_FTP and CuteFTP. If you have Ontrack's (now Symantec) Powerdesk (explorer replacement), that has a built-in FTP function. I use that.

i have some questions about hosting sites...

1- how do i make that first page where you have to click "entert site" page? like in is there any program?

2- whats the program to instal templates for a site? is it dificult to use? price?

Answer:some hosting questions

The Enter page is very simple.

The specific page that you point to is the index page it contain two pictures the smaller lower picture is an Hyperlink to index2 which is the regular entry page.

Templates are program specific you have to decide first which authoring rogram you would like to use and look for templates.

Most of the popular programs have many free and for pay templates.

If you want to play around first, this is a free very popular easy to use HTML program.

You can try it first by creating few pages on your computer and use the browser to see how it would look on the Internet.

I am currently trying to make some sense of the LAN in my fraternity house. We run a basic Comcast connection into a Cisco 1721 router {running software version 12.4(5a)} and then to the rooms through a Netgear FS516. The rooms are setup with static ip addresses and most people run this connection into another wireless router in their rooms. Im not sure exactly why its setup having static IPs, and would like to know if it would be beneficial to changing it to assigning IPs by DHCP.

After one brother graduated a couple years ago nobody really knew how to use the router, but I have been checking into it more now and have a few questions. Would it be beneficial to install something like the SDM to manage the device since most people in the house cannot use the command line interface, making it harder to deal with over time? I can deal with some of the command line interface, but even for me its a little beyond my abilities.

The main reason I am trying to access and configure the router is because of xbox live problems. When the xbox is connected straight into the wall plug coming into the room, it lists the connection as having strict nat. If I connect through my room router, such as my time capsule, then the nat is listed as moderate. Last night I forwarded the ports required for xbox live on my time capsule and it now reads strict nat again. When we try to connect through the house to each other it only works when everyone plugs their xbox straight into the wall, not... Read more

Answer:Fraternity House Internet Questions

I think anytime you use dual routers, you're going to have issues with XBOX. Truthfully, I can't imagine why they're running static IP addresses, and that does pose some issues that probably dictated the secondary routers.

If this were my network...

I'd configure the router to enable uPnP so that port forwarding wouldn't be an issue. Since you can't forward the same ports to more than one workstation, it's pretty hard to effectively support any port forwarding.

Next, I'd use the DHCP Server function so that a simply switch in a room would be sufficient to connect more than one computer. For wireless connections, you can use all those wireless routers they purchased as a WAP, which would eliminate their NAT layer as well.

I'm hoping to finish my basement once spring rolls around, and I figured if I'm ever gonna run ethernet lines in the house, it's probably my last chance. So I'm just trying to draw a few pointer from experiences some of you have.
I ran wired network in my previous residence, so I have all the hardware and ideas on what to do with them, But I've never installed wires behind walls, so I could use some pointers.

I'll run all wires to the basement where I'll house all my servers and networking gears. As I mentioned, the basement is still unfinished, so wiring the first floor seems simple enough. Just drill through bottom plates of the framing and subfloor panel between joists, no?
2nd floor is a bit tricky, but it looks like there might be some extra cavity next to return air duct. Not sure how much wood I'm going to have to drill through between floors though. Is it just bottom plate+subfloor+top plate or is there something else? Also How big of a hole can I make with out weakening the frame? I'm going to need to run at least 6 wires to 2nd floor, maybe it'd be better to make 2 holes? And I was wondering how hard would it be to run a cable along the outer walls with insulation? Would that be just impractical without opening up the drywall?

Also, I have a full sized rack cabinet that's going to house all my equipment in basement. I'm debating using patch panels or a bunch of regular wall plates to run the cables... Read more

Answer:Some questions about running ethernet in a house

The first floor will be easy. If you actually want to get the wires in the wall you can use a flex bit. They are handy when you don't have direct access to what's below it, but can still reach the wire with a fiberglass rod.

Your best bet for the 2nd floor is getting to an attic through a chase then down through the top plate. If you don't have an attic, getting from floor to floor can be a challenge depending on how old the house is. Unless you have a really old house, you probably have fire stops. Even then your only practical hope is fishing an inside load bearing wall as outside walls will have insulation. Basically you have will end up having either a blank wallplate on the first floor that you can pull through or you'l put a jack there too. Outside walls can be done, but they aren't easy and suck. All I can say is my magnepull is a lifesaver.

If you have an attic but don't have a chase you could put conduit from the basement to the attic outside, run the ethernet into a room or closet with power and put a switch up there. You would be running all your upstairs drops to that switch.

Last option is putting all the Jacks on an outside wall and running the wires outside, ugly. If you don't use conduit the wire will eventually rot, even if you use uv stable wire. Uv ... Read more

I've been with my present ISP for years ? since the days when most of its staff and clientele used to get together for a drink every Friday night. The company's customer service was knowledgeable, polite and largely conducted on first-name terms, and I was entirely happy with the whole arrangement. However, the company was bought out some years ago when the local commercial TV giant decided it wanted to get into the internet game and made its founder an offer he couldn't refuse. Since then it has grown greatly and, in the process, has developed many of the problems that seem to afflict larger organisations: the quality of service is no longer what it was; the familiar, friendly voices on the tech support line have all disappeared, and to cap it all, better deals are now available elsewhere. As a result of all this I'm considering jumping ship. My problem is that this ISP hosts my strictly non-profit website (approx. 750MB total) for free. So I'm wondering: do other ISPs offer a similar service or is it a rare survivor from a time before maximising profit at any cost became the name of the game? I haven't seen it listed in any of the ISP comparison charts I've seen up to now.I'd be grateful for any relevant information.Thanks ? and a Happy New Year everyone.

We've gone with the free route for this website, as we're a small non profit making club. I'm concerned that Yola aren't a UK based company. Given that our domain name is registered with 123, would we be better to transfer our website to them instead, on one of their cheaper packages?The reason I'm asking this is that we used to be with Streamline - in fact our old website still is. The old domain name was originally registered by another club member with 123, and when we set up the Streamline website, the Domain transferred to them - which was an irritating surprise. I don't want the same to happen again, as I want to keep any domain we take out in the same place for simplicity.All comments and help are really welcome please - many thanks!

My club has a website which at the moment is about 17Mb in size. We're looking to move to a free, or very low cost, hosting service, but are a little confused by what's on offer.
Googling results in several hits for free web sites, but most of them are in the US. Is there any disadvantage to having a US-based host?
Secondly, the ads mostly mention available space, plus bandwidth per month. What does that latter figure refer to? Does it restrict how many people can view our site, or does it restrict how many mods our webmaster can make to the site in a month?
One reason triggering this quest is that we've just found that our present host doesn't allow our site to be recognised if the user doesn't put the "www." in front of its name, as most web sites can these days. How do I find out if that's possible with potential hosts that we're looking at?
Finally, several of the ads mention how many email addresses they offer; our present host recognises almost any prefix in front of our web site name (e.g. [email protected] org. uk, or [email protected] org. uk) as a valid email address. Is this the same thing they're talking about when they mention the number of email addresses, or are they referring to stand-alone email addresses?

Answer:Trying to make sense of website hosting providers

There are a number of questions you are posing and some don't have straight forward answers. They depend very much on who your registrar is and how much access your hosting provider offers. The old saying of; "you get what you pay for", is never more true. You can't expect decent control on free or almost free hosts. They are designed to give you minimum flexibility and hook you in, in order to upgrade you at a later date to a more expensive option. Keep in mind also, some of the larger providers have European servers. So it may be a US company, but your site may not necessarily be physically hosted on US servers.
That said, your site is a minimal size in today's terms - almost minute! So as far as hosting in the USA is concerned, you would suffer some delay, (known as latency), but it probably wouldn't be perceptible.
Your second question - bandwidth, refers to the amount of data transmitted and received at the server. This will be directly affected by how popular your site is (number of hits) and the content. Clearly streaming video is far more bandwidth intensive than text files, but given the size of your site, it's more likely to be the later I would think. Hosts have the ability to measure the amount of data transmitted and once your allowance has been reached, often charge extra for exceeding that allowance. Sometimes by x amount per 1GB. Generally, there is no restriction on how often you can make changes.

The Private LAN end of my router has an IP address of, I use this as the gateway from my .39 card. The WAN on my router goes to my static ip address, which is on a different subnet(.252).

In this fashion, I can browse the internet from inside my network, however, my website(static IP addy) cannot be viewed by the outside world. (It comes up with a 403 forbidden and bring up my router page if I type it in from inside my network)

If I take the router out, and give my WAN port on my server the static IP address and subnet of .252, my website can be viewed fine. (and I can obviously access the internet fine)

I have added the .39 IP addy into the Virtual Server table on my router, still with no luck. This leads me to believe that there is some kind of issue between the 0.1 card and the 0.39 card.

I had this running through the router a couple of months ago, with the old IP address (.0 subnet), but I can't remember what I did.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated?

Edit: My router is a DSA-3100 Ver.B1

I organise the website for a small social club, and we are currently using STREAMLINE as a web host, which is quite easy to use and not too expensive. Their web wizard is good.But I've now come across SYNTHASITE, which is extremely easy to use, even for a comparative beginner like me - and what's more it's free. It's not as sophisticated as Streamline, but it's fine for a simple website like ours. Perhaps I'm just pessimistic and looking for problems, butis there a catch somewhere - is Synthasite really as good as it currently seems? Has anyone got experience of these two website hosting companies, either negative or positive? I've got to decide soon between the two - if there aren't any problems with them, I'll transfer our domain name to them.

Answer:Website hosting: Streamline versus Synthasite

depends on your expectations. The Synthasite system is pretty basic, but then you realise that. Your site will be hosted in South Africa, but then you probably realise that, too, and it's not a reason to avoid the system - web sites can be hosted anywhere.The people who run Synthasite have done their homework with regards to their terms of service and their privacy policy, and there's nothing in either that is unduly frightening. There's a trade-off with any free web-hosting service, which is that your personal information will be shared in some way. It may be shared with other companies in a group, for instance, and you'll consent to this when you sign up.It's horses for courses - if you want a very simple way to get a site online systems like this will be of interest, provided you understand that Synthasite will not host your domain name - you'll need to arrange to point it to your Synthasite location.

I have to PC's of similar spec, and I can't decide which one is better to run game servers on like COD, COD4, UT2004 ect and a teamspeak server. Both run windows XP Pro
(This is only for a LAN btw)
First one is an old HP ProLiant Server ML 310 G1
It has a 2.80Ghz CPU
2gb RAM PC2100R
2 WD800 setup in RAID 0 (supposedly 7200 rpm but they are old now)
Intergrated 1gb/s network card.
Only has USB 1.0 ports
IDE Raid Controller
Also put page file on another intenral system disk

Or a Dell Optiplex GX270
2.6Ghz Pentium 4 With Hyper Threading.
1.5 Gb RAM DDR PC2700
PCI 1gb/s Network Card
WD5000 Harddrive (seems to get very hot short time, case has s*** airflow but nothing i can do about that)
Has USB 2.0
Overall the Optiplex seems the faster PC, but the harddrive although new (about 8 months old) is rather loud / cranky

The Proliant is about 6-7 years old atleast, but has more RAM and slightly faster CPU but with hyper threading on the optiplex, would the slightly faster cpu make any difference or not?. However even with the RAID setup, it still seems to have the harddrive as the limiting factor and is noticable secong lag every now and then.
EDIT: Also just bought a high speed usb memory stick, so was thinking i could use a program like eboostr to act as vista ready boost?

Also was thinking of switching the fast ram to the ProLiant server, would this help at all? currently it has ECC Ram, can you mix the too or not?

Do you have to set the game as exceptions in your antivirus (firewall) software?

Answer:Questions About Multiplayer Game Hosting

Yes (open the proper ports) and if you have a hardware firewall you need to forward those ports to the IP address of your pc.

I am trying to open a pop up chat window on a website and when i click on the link it opens a chat window that says the pop up should open soon or click on this link. This is normal, however when i click on the link the same window pops up again except that it keeps refreshing, making a clickin noise (like i keep pressing a link a lot of times), and the loading bar on the page keeps reloading as well. This keeps going o for about half an hour and then it says the page I am trying to load has expired, and i don't end up getting redirected to the chat window. I have contacted the organisation it is with and they said no one else had complained of the problem, and to make sure pop ups were enabled. So I have checked that:
-Pop ups are enabled
-Cookies are enabled
-That there is no virus or malware on my computer.

Still nothing.

I have also tried the website on all other browsers (safari, firefox, chrome and IE).

This problelm also occurs for every laptop/ computer in my house, except doesn't occur when I access the webpage using my mobile phone (in my house)! Very Weird!
Any suggestions?

I have several websites being hosted by different companies for different reasons.

Two of our websites are being hosted by 1 and 1 hosting. In all honesty, the sites don't always come up as easily as I would like and there have been other problems . Is there a way to test this company's (or thye web site) performance?

One of the sites being hosted by them is our site on Lyme disease.

your help in this matter is appreciated. Joe

Answer:How can I tell if web hosting company is good?

Here is one free service that can check one web site for you every 30 or 60 minutes. The free service only checks to see if it can connect to the site and does not give any type of site loading speed information. It sends e-mail reports of when a site is detected as being down and when it comes back up. You also get a free monthly report of total down time (if any).

Answer:I want a good free web hosting with cgi and/or php

You might check here:

They have a pretty good list of free hosts. If this doesn't get you what you need, try searching at google or altavista for "free web hosts".

Before you sign up with a free service, let me share my experience with, which is now out of business.

I set up a web site for a local band with freehostspace. At first, everything was fine. Then after about three weeks, we started experiencing downtime of several hours at a whack, three or four times a week. There was no way to call them, you had to submit a support request.

Initially, this request was met with, "we'll have to contact our server vendor and request they look into it." After a while, they started promising to implement their own servers. In the meantime, the downtime continued.

Finally, one day, instead of our home page, we received a message that freehostspace was out of business due to failure to pay for the server hosting it used. We were welcome to migrate our site to their servers at the "special" rate of ..well, whatever it was.

I switched to , and so far have been pretty happy with them. We have had some minor downtime, but their customer service is stellar, and at $5/month, you won't find a better deal. (I actually recommended we go to a slightly more expensive host, but the band has a tight budget at this time. )

I am not advertising, I gain nothing by posting this, I just want to share what I think is the best free hosting I have found. will give you 50mb of space, 750mb of bandwidth a month, plus 1 FTP, 1 POP3 email, and 1 SQL database, all with no advertisements. They support PHP and SQL, and they either give you a subdomain or let you use your own domain name. The only catch is you have to get 15 posts on their forums and maintain minimun forum activity (a few posts a month is enough).

At 75 posts your account is upgraded to 75mb of space, 1gig of bandwidth, 2 FTP accounts, 2 databases, and 1 sub-domain.

At 125 posts you get 125mb of space, 1.5gig of bandwidth, 3 FTP, 3 email, 3 SQL databases, 3 sub-domains and 1 parked domain.

Finally, at 250 posts you get 200mb of space, 2gigs of badwidth, 5 FTP accounts, 10 email accounts, 5 SQL databases, 5 sub-domains, 1 parked domain, and 2 addon domains (I don't know what you would do with all these sub-domains with only 2gigs of bandwidth, but whatever)

All of the above is still free and still with no ads at all.

Ive recntly connected my PC to a wireless network where mine is the main computer, and I have attempted to connect other computers to the network and they register that a network is there and the signal is good but they then say "limited or no connectivity". What do I do? Im very new to computers. Thank you

Answer:Good signal within house but unable to connect.

Have you actually "Connected" to the wireless network? In other words, have you run the wireless adapter's software, scanned for "Available Wireless Networks", found and highlighted the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and selected the option to "Connect" to it? Once "Connected", the wireless adapter should get its IP address by DHCP from the router and you should have network and internet access.There is a difference between the Wireless Network Adapter and Router communicating with a good signal and "Connecting" (as in "logging in") to your Wireless network.The "Limited or No Connectivity" indication means that the adapter hasn't been able to get its IP address from the router. Windows has allocated a default "169.254" address which won't let you access the router and get online. "Connecting", as above should resolve this.

Okay guys, I am just about at my wit's end here. I will start by describing my major issue at the current moment and then attempt to a give a background about the problem, how it started, and some sort of a timeline.
My pc (actually my first build) : intel core2quad q6600, 2 gig crucial ballistix (4-4-4-12), xfx geforce 8800 gts, lg cd/dvd writer, barracuda 320 mb hd, antec 900.

As it stands right now, I am trying to reinstall windows xp pro on my computer using a legit OEM disk that i bought. My computer will NOT boot into any of the safe modes currently (it just hangs as it is loading the drivers), in regular windows xp (it doesn't even show the windows xp logo with the little scrolling animation on the bootom), OR FROM THE WINDOWS CD! Everytime I try to boot from CD, it will start loading all the drivers and whatnot from the disc and then I see the "Setup is now starting Windows" and then the computer just hangs there.

I also had tried to install windows from xp a couple of days ago when I could still get into safe mode and so the installation started just fine, it even downloaded updates for the installer and then told me to restart. On restart, I can see the partition that the windows setup created and I load it. Once again, it will say "Starting windows" and then I get a stop error BSOD. ---> either saying something like page fault in non paged area, or bad pool header.

I'm a student dev getting ready to branch out and start bringing some bread home. All of my work/learning thus far has been front-end with HTML5, CSS, and a little JScript so this will be new for me.
I have a potential client that i'm going to need to build a website for, but i'm torn between GoDaddy and Azure. I need both domain registration and hosting. I don't mess with any of those "site-builder" wizards, i'll be doing everything from scratch. I also have another potential client that i will be propositioning in a few months for a site and mobile app with an SQL back-end. (The apps are to be cross-platform iOS, WP/10, and Android)
For the latter client, and in general I've been leaning towards Azure.[HR][/HR]
My question, does Azure website hosting include domain registration?
If it doesn't, how do i host on Azure but register with GoDaddy? Will this not just cause problems for me later?
Thanks WPenvy

Answer:Does AZURE website hosting include domain regitration?

You cannot register a domain name with Azure, you can do that using another domain registrar (like GoDaddy) and then just point your Azure website to the domain you purchase. There should be no problems if you buy your domain from go daddy and then point it to azure.
When it comes to SQL, basically every website hosting supports this nowdays, so its up to you and the client needs.
If you need to send push notifications for your mobile app i would suggest Azure, since makes its easier to reach iOS, Android and Windows Store apps via notification hubs.
In short, if its a simple website, and you are not going to use a lot of space in you SQL database, no push notifications and a simple app, i would go for another webhosting solution, but if your website will be big/huge and it needs push notifications and pontentially big SQL Databases, i would go for Azure.
Hope that helps.
