Need to find good site to host my site

Q: Need to find good site to host my site

I have some pretty big events coming up in my personal life coming up over the next twelve months and want to set up a web site for about that duration to keep family and friends up to date with all that's going on with me.

I know a blog sounds ideal but I really need more of a traditional website for this. Thus, I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions where I may find a good site to host me.

I want something that's free, or cheap, with a nice short concise URL for my site, (custom if possible), and that has no ads/banners on the site that my visitors have to see. Can be pretty bare bones (don't need any HTML editors built in) but needs to be relatively reliable.

Any help would be massively appreciated!
****Afterward****

Thank you both for your input. Since I'm located in the US looks like I'm going to go with the latter suggestion. Seems like a wonderful outfit; exactly what I'm looking for.

Preferred Solution: Need to find good site to host my site

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I might have 50 web site tabs and am looking at one of them. All of a sudden, another web site starts with a voice and I can't determine which tab it's on. Trying to listen to two sites (or more) is ridiculous. How can I find the offending web site?

Also, some web sites will present and audio "story" which cannot be paused or stopped (unless you close the page). Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you.......

A:How find web site that is making voice sounds when site not in focus

Open Volume Mixer (right click Volume icon in notification area) and mute the whichever you want. The pages with sound will have green volume bar moving up and down.

Can anyone tell me how to determine who is the host for a web site? I have found a site that promotes cruelty to animals, kittens in particular. I would like to be able to make the hosting company aware of this and see what their response would be.

Hiya

Usually the address or URL will tell you the name of the host. What is the name of the site? If you don't want to say here as its controversial then email it and I'll have a look.

Hey all,

A year back I'd designed and developed a website for a client, originally, I'd just started doing this kind of thing and so I put his site on a free hosting site.

Anyway, now I own a reseller server and can host websites myself, I'm still learning bits and bobs about it thanks to the friend who was selling the service to me, anyway, I decided it was time that with a minor update that my client wanted, to move the site onto my server instead of having to log in monthly with this free host service.

Usually, it's a case of changing the DNS records (ns.example.com) on the domain registrar account, I have no problem with this bit, however my client pays for IT management or something along those lines, and these guys look after his domain. I contacted them, and asked them to change the name server to my own, however they replied asking the server I.P so they could instead change the A Record for the domain. This is where I'm stuck, how do I get to hosting the site on my server through A records?

Extra Info:
- I'm on a cPanel Linux server
- They refuse to change NS because when I set up the free hosting, it interfered with the clients email until we'd change (not 100% on this) the MX Records or something along those lines, and changing A Records prevents this or something.
- I've uploaded his site files, everything there and ready, the domain just doesn't point to my server or something along those lines, it currently direct... Read more

Hello,
 
What happened:
 
I tried to download Gimp. It must have been a bad host.
 
Now I get pop-ups and new windows opening, telling me im out of date on Googlechrome and Firefox. My "right click, copy (and paste) function" is not working. I am getting scrolling and pop-up ads while using websites like Ebay. And there's more. It is very aggressive malware. It seems like a typical infection but it is HARD TO REMOVE. I tried resetting browsers, running superantispyware, malwarebytes...  still infected.
 
Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

My friends have a Drupal developed website that they want to transfer to a different hosting service.
Their current service, is also the company that developed their web site in Drupal, from its former HTML based site.
My friends contacted another hosting service to do the migration and transfer; but the new hosting service techs
could not get the entire Drupal site migrated successfully from the former host.
They told my friends that their current host's configuration was not being transferred completely,
and the migration could not occur.
My friends have had a great deal of problems with their current host. The host wants to charge the $2500.00
just to do the transfer to a new service. This is an extremely high cost for a migration of any web site.
My friends do not have the money to spend to pay the price their current host wants.
It appears to be a "hostage" kind of problem.
I hesitate to mention the current business that is asking these exorbitant fees; but they are
a large corporation.
I am not familiar with the details of the contract agreement between the current host and my friends;
BUT, my friends have told me their agreement does not stipulate exact charges for migration or transfer
of the web site to a new host.
My question is, Are there any Drupal experts or consultants here on TechGuy.org that could advise
my friends on how to successfully migrate from their current host to a new host?
Also, Has anyone ever heard of an IT Lawyer or IT legal consul... Read more

Hello,

Please bare with me as I do not post in forums often and have never used this one. I looked around but was not able to find an answer to my question, but if it is out there please just point me to it. I am currently hosting an HTML site off of my computer. I recently created another site using WebMatrix. It was much easier then writing code in notepad.

So I used a handy tutorial I found (Create an ASP.NET website from scratch) and created the beginning of a CSHTML site. Now I am trying to host it from my computer and am getting very frustrated with how difficult this is.

I have installed MySQL and have a easyPHP working with it. I find it very disheartening that I can view the site when I hit run but cannot actually host it. Currently I use no-ip.com for my website and do not have any complaints. Really all I want to do is swap the current files with the new ones and walla my new site is up and running. Can someone please help me!

Thank you,

Hi

I am pretty new to this, so please be gentle.

I have a web site for my Yoga business. It is hosted on Telstra (my ISP) on the free web space you get with an internet account.

I have a domain name that I purchased from a company in the US called Registry Domains (http://registrydomains.com/index.html). When I open my web site by typing my domain name (daytimeyoga.com) I sometimes get a pop-up saying that my computer has spyware. This happens on my work computer as well as home.

I have up to date Norton virus scan, and regularly run both Adaware and Spybot. I'm pretty sure I don't have spyware on my computer.

So - I was wondering where the problem lies? As far as I can tell it must be one of the following:

1) Are my web site files corrupted somehow? If so, how do I find and fix the problem?

2) Is the problem somehow related to my URL redirection? If so, is it something I can fix, or does Registry Domain need to sort this out?

3) Is the problem with my ISP that hosts my web site? Seems unlikely as they are a huge corporation.

What to do?????

Here's my web site minus the redirection:

www.users.bigpond.net.au/daytimeyoga/

...and with redirection:

www.daytimeyoga.com

The pop up is attached as a pdf file.

Thanks

Narelle

I have setup a Site-to-Site VPN using Sophos UTM at each end. I set up an Ubuntu VM as a WINS Server using Samba.

So far so good. VPN Works.

My problem is with the WINS Server. I have taken two Windows 10 computers and for both of them added the IP of the WINS server under Advanced TCP/IP Settings and changed NetBIOS to Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

The results are close but not quite right. The two computers with the modified settings can now ping each other using computer name rather than IP. Other computers on each end of the VPN can not do that.

That said neither computer shows up in the Networks of the other. This is what I am trying to fix.

It appears that name resolution is working for the computers that check in with the WINS server but that the Windows 10 browsing service is not adding those computers to the network.

The LANs are 192.168.2.0/24 and 10.1.1.0/24 the WINS server is on 192.168.2.0/24 and it comes back as __MSBROWSE__ for that network. For 10.1.1.0/24 the computer that connects to the WINS server is showing __MSBROWSE__ when I check with nbtstat.

When I check services Computer Browser is running.

Can someone help me or at least point me in the right direction? This really shouldn't be this hard so I feel like I'm missing something obvious.

Hello all,

Good to join this forum

Anyway, Please can someone support me regarding connecting a Windows Server 2008 standard that needs to connect to another Windows server in another country outside of UK (Site B). The ports 1433 and 3030 are also open in the firewall and also the Draytek 2830n router, therefore I can see the ports open via yougetsignal.com. We have 1 public (Static) IP address from BT that is already in the Draytek router on Site A (UK).

How is the simplest or easiest way to connect these 2 Window servers so a management program that uses MySQL Database server can talk to the Site B server or vice-versa) Both sites have a Public IP address.

Can this be done by the WIndows firewall inbound rules / outbound rules where the port 1433 is set. There is an option to enter a Remote IP address under 'scope' which I assume is the Site B's public IP address within the inbound firewall properties.

The other way is the VPN on the Draytek 2830n. There is an option for Lan to Lan using IPSec but not sure the best settings for Dial-out or Dial-in. There is usernames and passwords that not sure of including the Remote gateway or Remote IP to use

We have 2 different routers on Site A and Site B are not the same.

Thanks Guys

Hi Guys,

I've done a fair amount of googling before referring myself to W10 Forums.. I hope this helps someone else in the process. Since rolling out Windows 10 we've noticed users are having difficulty accessing their personal user data drives, via File Explorer. Let me make a scenario which is understandable.

In Site 1 (HQ), we can connect to the file server (e.g access 1FS without any issues- Where user data is stored)
In the remote site (Site 2), we can do the same (e.g 2FS)

At our HQ, when running Windows 7, we are able to File Explore to 2FS but since the upgrade we're unable to. This occurs both ways.

We can ping our servers, and remote desktop.

Server infrastructure:
VMWare ESX 5
File servers in question are Windows Server 2008
ONLY Windows server 2008 R2 servers have the issue, (2008 Standard edition is fine) all patches have been applied via WSUS.

Can anybody shed any light on this?

Thanks in advance,

IT Apprentice

I may not have this under the correct section and please keep in mind that I am not a programmer but here goes.

I am trying to add a hyperlink in Outlook 2007 signature file that will open a child site, but the child site seems to need some personalized information in the cache that comes from opening a parent site first:

Parent site: http://www.mywildtree.com/chad/
Child Site: http://www.mywildtree.com/shop/catalog.aspx

When the child site is opened directly (without opening parent first) it loads forever. The parent site does not require any authenication it just has to be opened first and then the child site operates correctly.

Is there a simple way to have one hyperlink either a) open two sites one after the other in the same window? or b) open the childsite with a parent site dependancy (tag?, bookmark?) on the hyperlink?

I have been on google searching all afternoon and haven't had any luck yet so any help is appreciated.

Thank you

A:Hyperlink syntax to open a parent site and then child site

Welcome to Seven Forums chadseeg. The Shop Now link shows as actually being http://www.mywildtree.com/shop/preshop.aspx, and this appears to redirect to http://www.mywildtree.com/shop/catalog.aspx.

Firefox blames the redirection



It looks like the script on the page is written to specifically prevent going directly to the shopping catalog without going through the home page. I'm not a webmaster, so I am unsure if this is intentional or not. A Guy

Hi, I'm a complete network newb, but am helping out a Montessori school with their issues. Hopefully someone can help.
Site A has the main WAN link coming in to a Cisco 1841 router, then going to a Sonicwall appliance, then to a 24 port unmanaged switch.
There is also a point to point link to site B. This has another Cisco 1841 router on each end of the link. At site A, it's also plugged into the 24 port switch, and plugged into another 24 port switch at site B. There is a DC with DNS and DHCP at site A, and a DHCP server at Site B. Site A's IP achema is 192.168.1.x, and site B is 192.168.2.x, with subnet masks of 255.255.255.0. The circuit sides of the point to point connection is 10.0.0.1 & 2.
The problem they've been having for the last month or so is that the connection at site B would drop all together, or be very slow and sporadic. Yesterday, I tried downloading a 4mb file from the internet, and couldn't get the whole thing, even after trying for an hour, it kept timing out.
Downloading the same file from site A, I was done in 20 seconds.

Here's the wierd part. If I do a tracert from site A to site B's server, it sometimes works, meaning it'll trace in a couple hops to the server.When it doesn't, it tries to route out over the internet, with the first hop being a 162.42 address, which is the service provider.

Century Link says the point-to-point T1 circuit is fine, but am reaching out to see if anyone can give me a hand... Read more

This site is missing forums for advanced questions, like CMD commands. I used google and the best I found was here. I wanted to know my local groups: it had gpresult but not whoami. Even bootsect was missing.

I guess the answer is MS Technet or a Win 2008 site, but I'm surprised google came up with a bunch of amateur sites with old commands. I've been using NT for 15 years, hard to keep up unless you are working in IT.

I am using a NetGear RP614 v1 router to share a cable network connection to the Internet. We need to connect to the web site of out local school system, (ip = 168.31.104.246). We cannot see any pages from this domain if the router is connected, however everything is OK if we connect any of our computers to the cable modem. The router is not set up to block any sites. I have reduced the maximum packet size from 1500 to 1400 to 1300 bytes, but no change in connectivity has happened. Any ideas wher to look?
The DNS servers listed by the router are correct, and I still cannot connect if I enter the IP address rather than the URL.

There are computers on the lan running Win 95, Win98, WinXP and all see the same thing. We are using a Motorola SurfBoard SB5100.
 

A:Can't reach a known good web site when using router.

You can not access your own IP, if that is the IP-number in your router.
Just use http://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/ and all should be fine.

Hey Everyone - I just found this site and thought before I start taking advantage of everyone's knowledge and advice I thought I'd contribute something by posting this thread.

I recently found a helpful Vista (and PC in general, Office 2007 too) resource. Woopid.com - Has a lot of video tutorials which are pretty nice/helpful. I'm no expert but I've been using it to send videos to my parents (it's a lot nicer than walking them through the same thing over and over again.

Anyways, I hope its a helpful recourse for the community. If you go the bundles page and scroll down you'll see a lot of groups of Vista videos as well.

Thanks!

A:Good Vista Resource Site

A site I visit occasionally - Sport Lemon - From Bar - From Sport - Watch Live Sports Online - FromSport - recently changed names and since then the home page shows but all of the links return a "404 - Not Found" error. Tried with four browsers - Opera (2), IE9, Waterfox 16 - with caches cleared. Works fine at public library and ISP says it's ok for them. Firewall is Comodo and Java is disabled, tho it doesn't seem the site's using it. Win 7x64. Any suggestions about what might be going on? Thanks,

Came across this while hunting down some facts on Seagate drives this morning and thought those of us who are more hardware orientated might like it. It is fairly thorough and simple to use no fancy and very lengthy spiels which I personally like

Best SSD 2015 - 81 Charts - UserBenchmark < there are more than SSD benchmarks ie USB CPU GPU etc

PS Have found it has a fantastic little benchmarking app that runs really quite quckly and test the system hardware UserBenchmark: CPU Speed Test Tool - Compare Your PC

A:Hardware folks - good site

The problem with those test is their is nothing there about reliability.

I use mostly Intel SSD's. I know now as I new then they were not the fastest but very reliable. They have a 5 year warranty by Intel. Which is a company that is going to be around in 5 years just in case I need a RMA.
