      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex. MP3s and ROMs] (including, but not limited to, copyrights and trademarks) Abusive, threatening, defamatory, racist, or obscene Viruses or any other harmful computer software False Information or libel Spam, chain letters, or Pyramid schemes Gambling or Illicit drugs Terrorism Hacking or cheating for internet/online games Warez, Roms, CD-Keys, Cracks, Passwords, or Serial Numbers Pornography, nudity, or sexual material of any kind Excessive profanity Invasive of privacy or impersonation of any person/entity Hacking materials or information Posting Tips   There are more BBcodes than there are buttons for on the reply menu. To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

Host and DNS Discussion

What do you mean if you look carefully? Domains are organized into levels. The highest is a top-level domain name (TLD), those are the domains like .com, .org, .uk, .nr, whatever. When you type a URL in the browser checks with the root server for the TLD, so there are servers that handle all requests for .com or .mil or whatever the TLD is. There is a server for .nr that forwards requests to the second domain name. Since the US sort of claimed the .com TLD the second-level domain name for .com domains is the domain you buy. With a TLD like .nr, whoever controls .nr (apparently the island of Nauru, which controls edu.nr, gov.nr, biz.nr, info.nr, net.nr, org.nr, and com.nr) controls the server that handles .nr domains. A Russian company bought the co.nr domain, and they are offering subdomains under their co.nr domain. There is even a Wikipedia article about them.

Ah yes, but then you can't get a domain like .co.uk for free, can you? Is .co.uk technically a subdomain?

Everything except the TLD is a subdomain of something else. Google.com is a subdomain of com.

Probably not. ICANN is the group that you need to buy the domain name from (maybe through someone else), and they charge money for it. So you would only find one for free if someone else was willing to pay for it, because ICANN does not assign domain names for free.

I'm about as sure as I can be, I use hostgator. I haven't done a survey of all of their customers or anything, but they've given me what I've paid for. You should be able to find host ratings and reviews online if you want other opinions.

and why lke these sites give huge amount by little money in oppsite the other site host?
I don't know, either they oversell or they bought a lot of equipment for a low price.

Hello every one!This is my first question in this forum, wow! Who says it’ll be about this!Now, after reading all the posts here I’m a little bit confused :) . I want to change my web hosting provider, mine is not good, but I have few newbie questions.Does it matter if the web hosting is in another country?Among all of the web hosting providers that I got from this thread in this forum, I like http://www.hostgator.com/http://dreamhost.com/http://www.lunarpages.com/http://www.awardspace.com/All of them are out of my country. I just can’t decide for which one to choose. Any sugestion?

Whatever you hear from anyone, take it with a grain of salt, as every opinion is personal. It's hard to make an objective opinion about hosts. I haven't used any host from this topic, so I won't reccomend anyone. The ones I have used are either my own PCs, or free crappy hosts I've used only because of the subdomain they give (like hit.bg for example).But no. It doesn't matter that much if the host is not from your country. It makes a difference ONLY if you get robbed. If they're in your country, you can make the police take them out. If not, it will be much harder. But this applies only to fakes. A true, legitimate host, like any of the ones here that have at least one person to reccomend them, won't be robbing you, so this is not a concern here.The other plus is you can go pay directly, instead of using a credit card. This saves you the transaction fees a bank will have. But if you live on the other part of the country, the fuel costs will be larger than the bank fee, so if you choose a host from your country, make it be from your town too.

Thank you for your quick reply. I’m going to take in consideration that.

I got one from my country. The problem is the service, it is really pour and all of them are resellers.

This is all well and good, but what are your PERSONAL experiences with these hosts? I'm leary of anything 'free'. Nothing is free. 'Free' probably means you'll be carrying banners or Google adsense whether you like it or not. I intend to do a lot of streaming, both video and podcasts. Therefor, I need a lot of bandwidth, but not only do I need bandwidth, I need clear, uninterrupted bandwidth. In other words, no lag. This probably means I need a dedicated server. In general (I'm guessing here), stay away from hosts that adverstise "we host x thousand websites". These are probably slow. I'm guessing again, but I estimate that 30 Gb of space and 750 Gb of bandwidth/mo is what I need. I need PHP and Javascript, and am not sure that I need mySQL, but probably do. There will be a free section with sample content and a members' site that is password protected. Can anybody suggest a host that meets this spec, and you have experience with this host? I also need a guru/webite master that provides consulting and a little bit of coding to get me started. There's lots I don't know and I need someone who is an expert at all this so that I get the site protected and as fast and efficient as possible. Lastly, I have next to no budget! Please send money. Have your credit card ready! Operators are standing by to take your call. :)

http://www.hostgator.com/shared.shtml350GB of space and 3TB of bandwidth for $5/mo, they are a reliable host also. If you want to compare download speeds for your site from around the world, you can use this site:http://internetsupervision.com/You can use that to check the speeds of the host's sites to compare. www.hostgator.com loads pretty quickly from around the world, but the best I've seen is www.theplanet.com, they are a very large host with a ton of bandwidth, but you're going to pay more.

Name: IsMyWebsitePrice: FREEServer-side Scripting: PHPDatabases: MySQLSpace: 100MB standard, can get moreBandwidth: 1GB/month standard, can get moreAds: Yes, but very small and customizable. Placing ads actually benefits you!Web Address: Subdomain. Can be set up to work with your own domainAdditional comments: An extremely good service for several reasons:1. It's not just a web host, it's an entire community built around improving everyone's websites.2. It has loads of great features (custom FTP accounts, webmail, cPanel, and even a built-in virus scanner, etc.) that you would only normally get on an expensive paid host.3. You can get more features, space and bandwidth simply by asking4. It has a very simple-to-use web site.5. Sites are classified into several catagories. You can move up catagories by improving your site, and the higher your catagory, the more space and bandwidth you get.6. It's completely different! It's been set up to provide webmasters with what they want, not to make its owner a lot of moneyAs you can see, I'm very satisfied with this host, and I'd recommend it to everyone.

I've used various hosts over the years, both paid and free (GoDaddy = bad). The best experience has been with Deluxe Host aka DHost; they've hosted my sites for four years and counting and I haven't had any problems except for this one really long downtime (2 months) about a year and a half ago. But, they're free, they have PHP and MySQL support, and they have a support forum as well. 100 MB, and virtually unlimited bandwidth.If you're looking for something like that... give it a shot. Take a close look at their Terms of Service as they do have a few restrictions (very reasonable!)Side Note: If you don't need PHP/MySQL or a lot of space, use their sister service, XT Host.Oh, another note: If you become a DHost user, and you're running out of the 100 MB space, just ask for more. As long as you're still within the ToS and have a good reason you can get (virtually) unlimited space.EDIT: This is a good host for small sites. If you're looking for a corporate or business site I suggest you look elsewhere.

I've never noticed any downtime, although I have seen box-specific advisories on the forum. They have several paid upgrades available, .htaccess and MySQL being the most tempting for me. I might upgrade or migrate once my site gets off the ground, but until then I have no real reason to.

I am using free host service of Awardspace (http://myloves124.awardspace.com)Recently (from 26th Aug), connection to the site becomes very weak, just good when I wake up early at 5am.I ask my friend living in USA, France, Korea ... they say the connection still be good.At the same time, in my country, there is a big domain attacking (victim is the biggest hosting provider) that make many sites corrupt (they maybe not accessible, or be put frame tag to redirect to another site) So is there any relation between weak connection to my site and that event ???Thanks so much :)
