Hosting domains/subdomains

I currently have a reseller account with a webhosting company and I have recently been approached by a friend asking me if he can host his bands forum on my servers. He currently has his site hosted somewhere else, I don't know if he wants to move his whole site over or just wants the forums on my server. I'm assuming its the latter of the two.

Anyway, he's renewing his domain name in a couple of days. Is it possible that if he wants to host only the forums on my server, say will point to the forum (on my server) and can point to his site on his server If this is so, how do I do it

Does that make sense

True multiple domain hosting vs addon domains/domain pointers   (444 Views)
, I need some help understanding the differences between true multiple domain hosting and addon domains which (I guess) use pointers to point to a sub domain/folders. I just signed up with Site5 and need to know how best to setup my account and added domains etc.
Reseller wants to know what hosting software   (266 Views)

Secure directories and shared hosting questions...   (288 Views)
. Hope is well. I'm toying with the idea of having a travel site where travellers can upload diaries and pictures and sensitive files (like scans of documents etc.) I've sorted a solution for multiple uploads to my shared server space, but I'm not sure how to best sort out a secure directory so the outside world can't see the uploaded files they have. Does anyone know how I can have secure directories, which I can still access to upload files to from a PHP form The secure directories need to be protected from just anyone getting the files in that directory. Also, I would like the site idea to have multiple uploads, so people can upload images from their digital cameras. I've sorted a Java solution to the actual uploading - but can anyone tell me of anything I should be aware of, or have setup, or whatever when having this type of feature Thank you for any help on this, as always I've caught myself sorting this stuff out at the last minute!!

location of hosting   (277 Views)
Hi all, In response to another thread with a similar title, and in order to fully understand how the search engines treat this situation, I think it should be made clear that there are other side effects for those that host outside their physical location for target audience other than just speed (latency). I have seen many forums and participants say that there is no other side effect, but it is pretty clear that both msn and google definitely give a weighting to the location of the host, and together with the tld domain of the domain decide on which localised search results you are shown on. If anyone has any further information on how to get the search engines to realise where your location is, and which search engine results you should really show on, it would be great to share this info. My personal experience is that our site, shows up for uk searches, but our .com site does not. Now that we have just made our a straight redirect to our .com site, we are mainly showing up in the .com searches. Any ideas or comments would be great.

Pay for hosting or Go for FREE   (294 Views)
Hi , I've been trying to decide whether to pay for hosting of a small informative site or just use the free space out there. 1) My personal site probably wont use over 5 MB of space. The cheapest i've been able to find was like $5/mo. And some personal sites i've seen dont' seem to occupy much space. 2) If i used free space, can i substitute the typical URL with a domain name 3) Even if i can't get a personalized domain name can i register the site with the most frequently used search engines About how much will it cost to register

Plesk Editor on Cpanel hosting - possible?   (267 Views)
I have a reseller account on some cPanel hosting. I'm interested in the Plesk WYSIWYG editor here. Anyone know if its possible to install and use the editor with cPanel (i.e. without the Plesk Control Panel) I need to use the editor with multiple sites. Does this require i purchase the software for each site or just once If you're wondering, i'm choosing the plesk editor over some others because the clients like to see the entire folder and file trees - being able to click a file to edit it. It doesn't require configuration for each site or any coding on editable pages - just plug it in and go! If you can recommend anything similar then I'm all ears.

My hosting company went down can I recover my domain?   (531 Views)
I went with for hosting. Not a very well known company but seemed like a good deal and somebody recommend them. Anyway it's not proven to be a good choice because a few weeks ago my site went down and now it seems their whole company has gone and if you check their URL it's just one of those 'links page'. Okay so I made a mistake going with these but I registered when I signed up for the hosting. When I do a 'whois' it's registered under my name. I was wondering if there was any way to recover this domain name and host it with somebody else
Anyone have experience w/this hosting co?   (325 Views)
Hi , I was wondering if anyone out there has had experience with Mysitespace: I have a client who is currently with Verio. They want to switch, as they are paying $49.95 for their plan. I'm sort of a new comer and don't know too much about these hosting companies, but I'm generally very skeptical when there is such a difference in price. Here's just a small sample from one of their plans which costs only $6.00 : Hosting Plan Details * 800MB disk space * 20GB (12,000MB) monthly data transfer * Support for your own domain * 5 sub domains * 5 MySQL databases * Unlimited FTP Access * SSH Support * Powerful xController Control Panel The "one catch" they mention is the following: We do show a small "Free Hosting by" link at the bottom of your site. In addition we do limit you to certain file types, but do support everything needed for a basic web site. Compared with a partial list of my client's plan with Verio: * 10 GB of monthly data transfer * 300 MB diskspace * 30 configurable POP/Webmail e-mail accounts * 30 mail forwards * 30 autoresponders Can anyone offer some advice please
