If the address is http://www.example.com it doesn’t work, they get a simple error message that suggest to reload the page. It’s not all Vista users that have this problem. For the rest [...]Continue Reading »
I have a Microsoft ASP.NET MVC web application with SQL Server 2008. Currently running on a single server, performance is reasonable. However I now need to deploy the same application to support much higher volumes. There are also a number of high-load services (for real-time route scheduling and processing of data feeds). I believe that I will need a separate database server and one or two web-servers. If I host at somewhere like 1&1 or [...]Continue Reading »
My goal is to be able to add/drop subdomains for a multi-tenant app via Route53: tenant.example.com. Account provisioning should place the new tenant on a hosting node and then add the newly onboarded tenant subdomain to Route53. The parent DNS is currently handled by a 3rd party (dnsmadeeasy). Currently DNS provider has something like this: example.com -> A -> <someIP> example.com -> MX -> <mailhost> mail.example.com -> CNAME -> <mailhost> www.example.com -> CNAME -> example.com [...]Continue Reading »
Is this a solid (and cheap) High Availability idea for my website and database if the zombi’s attack?
I have an Idea for fail-over high availability for my website but i am not sure if this is good, bad or a disaster in itself.

Both servers are running mirrored raid drives, two network cards, 2 switches etc. The provider is guaranteeing 99.999% up time but something did go wrong and they took almost a a day before [...]Continue Reading »

I have a registered domain and am wondering how to go about adding a string to the front of the domain e.g. string.example.com. Google for example has maps.google.com. Could someone point me in the right direction? Asked by NodeExplosion It will depend on what host you’re using. Most will offer subdomains, however. generic instructions are to log into your host control panel, and look for an option relating to ‘subdomains’. From there, you should be [...]Continue Reading »
Is box trapper bad for web hosting on shared servers?

You should disable it in WHM > Tweak Settings > BoxTrapper Spam Trap Is this anything to worry about? What causes BoxTrapper to [...]Continue Reading »
