Subdomain Question

Q: Subdomain Question

Hi,

I've registered a domain through lcn.com, previously I've just modified the nameservers to point to a shared hosting account.

I'd like to know how to keep www.domain.com pointing to this shared hosting account and create a subdomain my.domain.com which points to a new dedicated server of which I have the ip address.

I believe I have to add an (A) address record on my lcn account, I have hostname and ip address fields here, could anyone help me out and tell me how to set this up?

Thanks

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 had to reformat & reinstall XP at home. Now, when I browse the web, I notice that if I type "www.google.com" I get a "page cannot be displayed" error but if I type "google.com" it goes right to the site with no problem.

Google is just an example, it seems to be random (not all pages do this) and I don't have a problem once the page is cached.

Anyone know why this is happening?
 

A:Bizarre question about the "www" subdomain

Not all serrvers have a WWW in their address so, if you put it in the browser can't go to that address. Just like dialing a correct/incorrect phone number that's been disconnected.

I purchased a domain name. I have a dynamic ip and so I needed to use a sub domain or a secondary domain. I Have done this. When I enter the address into my browser it brings up my router settings page. I would like to eventually be able to access files on my server through this address and then eventually have a web site reside on my server. What do I do next on my way to being able to do this.

Hey, not quite sure how to explain this,
but if im supporting one of my friends computers via RDP using his ip 81.x.x.x, i have to check my email each time because i can't remember it...

I have a Windows 2003 Server linked to my domain, domain.com.

is there a way i can put, something like john.domain.com into RDP and it will recognise that as 81.x.x.x?

I thought of using DNS to create a record but not sure which i need/should use?

Does anybody understand what i'm looking for, and even better know how to do it?

Would be great if you could!!

Hello,

Can someone tell me how to create a subdomain? We currently have a domain.

Here's what I'm trying to do:
We are hosting a website with pictures (images) on a server but in order to server those pictures online I need to create a subdomain and link it to the images server. On what serverdo I create the subdomain? I'm guessing on the primary domain server and enter the IP address to the Imager server (the one with the pictures).

How do I do this, now I never done this before so I need step by step intructions.
Thanks,

Hi guys!

I have question regarding when to use subdomain and when to use A record under main domain?

e.g. I have main domain ABCD.com. I want to create record EFGH.ABCD.com that points to IP address 1.2.3.4. From my point of view I have to options:

1) Create host A record under main domain ABCD.com that points to the IP address 1.2.3.4 - host (A) record EFGH.ABCD.com=>1.2.3.4

2) Create EFGH as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com and then under that subdomain create host A record (without Name field) that points to IP address 1.2.3.4

If I create EFGH record as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com I can have separate MX, NS, SOA... records but if I create my record as host A record under main domain then MX, NS, SOA records from main domain are used.



The question is when to use records as host A records and when to use it as subdomain of a main domain? 



Thanks!

If I disable "search from address bar" in IE9, attempting to visit http://uncg.edu results in a 404 error. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, however, works fine. I can omit the subdomain from some websites (such as http://sevenforums.com), but others simply won't allow me to. Also, http://uncg.edu simply opens a search engine if I have "search from address bar" enabled.

A:Any way to force IE9 to assume a subdomain?

I think that it depends on what data is stored by DNS servers for that address. This in turn depends on the information provided to them by webmasters. Perhaps John (z3r010) might be the one to ask here, as all 3 of his sites exhibit this behaviour.

There are some Japanese flash game websites on a domain called web.fc2.com. I can access some but not others, getting a timeout error.

A possibly relevant pair of messages I get from pinging via dnsstuff.com are

- There appears to be a firewall at <ip address> (hop 1) that blocks unwanted TCP packets.

Both my windows xp and my ubuntu box have the same problem, so it's not a hosts file issue or a system based blocking software. Might be my router?

I haven't been on windows 98 or 98SE alot so I was wondeing, If you put a Cd-writer (burner) in a computer with windows 98 or 98se (which I just did) why when ;you go to my computer and right click on the E dirve is there not a recording tab and other tabs like in windows xp, I know the answer will probably be------because your not using XP----------But I was wondering. The one I put in had NERO with it and I like NERO anyway however I would like to know for future purposes.

Why when you go to mycomputer and right click on the E drive (the burner) don't you have the recording tab and the rest like XP. I like doing it that way in XP where you can move all files or copy files and then go to the burner and say write these files to cd.

Does windows 98 or 98SE have this and I am just missing it or is a burning program like NERO or another the only way to use the burning in 98 or 98SE?

Thanks for the help

lol, you answered your own question, windows 95,98,98se,and ME don't support cd burning, except with 3rd party software. When you purchase any of the NT systems (ie: xp, NT 4, Server 2003, 2000 PRO etc...) all have the NT kernel which if you look during your install say " Windows (whatever version) is built on NT technology" and "You now have built in CD burning" soon and perhaps with the upcoming service pack 2, it will start coming with DVD burning capability.

I believe the only windows kernel out that currently supports cd burning is the NT one

Ok so, I've got a Dell Dimension 3000, 2.8GHz Pentium 4, 512mb ram.

Im doing an upgrade due to my lack of a video card and sufficient ram for games. *I'm upgrading strictly for gaming*
I'm adding ram, going to have a total of 2gigs. Did it on crucial and it should work fine.
Now as many of you already know the Dimension 3000 only has PCI video card slots. So, I did some research and found the best possible card for my mobo. (At least I think) The x1550:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814103031
And just recently I saw this:
http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=8982
But can't find it anywhere in stores, could someone show me where that is available? To my knowledge that would be better than the x1550, right?
Also, what kind of Shaders and Vertex shaders do these have?

Well assuming I'm getting the x1550 how do I determine if the video card is compatible with my monitor? *This is my main concern*

Another question, again assuming I'm getting the x1550, I see the recommended PSU is 420W. Now, my original dell PSU is a 250W. So I'm convinced theres no way I'll be running this card without a PSU upgrade. I went to pcpower cooling's site, went to the compatible PSU's for my dimension 3000 and found this:

A:Big Video card compatiblity question + power question

I am also using Dell Dimension 3000, and I upgraded all Video Card, RAM and PSU already, so I think I can help you a little bit here.

First, which games do you want to play? Because if you want to play newest games, then I'm sorry, you will have to buy a whole new computer. X1550 and 2gb of DDR RAM won't help you anymore.

Second, as far as I know, X1550 is the best for PCI now, but X1300 is really slightly behind. Many people believe they are the same. You can easily buy X1300 from newegg. You bought mine with $20.00 cheaper from eBay, but I guess money is not really your problem anyway.

Third, I have used X1300 and FX5500 and didn't see any problem with Dell Monitor at all. The only thing you need to be careful if you decide to buy X1300 is that there are two kind of X1300. Don't buy the Small Factor version because it is made for special kind of computer, and it won't fit into your case. The one you should buy look like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129062

Fourth, even though many people suggest that we should only use Dell PSU because the other PSU won't fit into the case, I am actually using this one of Antec: http://reviews.pricegrabber.com/power-supplies/m/601582/
It fits perfectly.
And yes, PSU upgrade is a good idea. I believe my system is working very well, so you should have at least 350W PSU. DON'T buy cheap PSU.

Out of all the questions to ask, this one took up the most space on my whiteboard, so here goes.

I am developing my own TELNET application. When data is recieved, I have a sub break it down, chatacter-by-character until it comes to a formatting tag. At the tag, it sets three Private RGB integers to the color specified, then, deletes the tag from the incoming string, and continues normally, applying the color formatting to the characters, and adding them to a RichTextBox. Sounds simple? Here's the question. When I apply the color formatting, it does not appear in the RichTextBox. Here is the code I use:

Text1.SelColor = GetColor
Text1.Text = Text1.Text + temp
Text1.SelStart = Len(Text1.Text)
Text = Right$(Text, Len(Text) - 1)

Text1 is the RTB, temp is the character picked up, Text is the incoming string, GetColor is the RGB() of the three variables mentioned earlier. Yet, the color is not displayed. Why is this?

Shouldn't be too hard for all of you....

PS---I am programming in Visual Basic 6.0

I'm not sure you can colorize an RTB without subclassing it and using the WinApi functions. I may be wrong though.

Hi folks / performance gurus

Got an old server 4 HDD storage bays and SSD with Raid 0 -- created 2 arrays of 2 logical HDD's but 4 physical HDD's (1 array 2 X 4TB, 1 array 2 X 3TB) --

Is this better than creating 1 array of all 4 HDD's - I'd lose some space because the arrays have to be the same size.

I'm not too bothered on other issues of RAID 0 -- I want the fastest HDD SPEED I can get out of the system - I've plenty of backups so HDD failure here isn't a primary concern.

SSD is the boot device - works fine -- just need info on setting up these 4 HDD's for the best performnce -- Storage array is set up in BIOS before Windows boots.

Help here appreciated -- I can usually get stuff to work (old Engineer) but don't necessarily have the knowledge to optimize performance.

Cheers
jimbo

A:Windows RAID 0 question performance question

What do you need the array speed for if you have an SSD as a boot up drive? If it's just for storage, raid 0 is like putting all your eggs in 1 basket..I know you have backups but having those drives independent of each other will give you less chances of a failure and headache.

I have three case fans, all which have a 3 pin connection that attaches to the motherboard and a 4 pin (same as Hard drive sized power supply connector). The 4 pin connectors have both a male and female end so that they can go inline with another part or could even be daisy chained together. My question is which line of the power supply should these be connected to?

I have a few options, I could connect one or more to the cable the contains a few 4 pin connectors and a 5V/12V power connector at the end for the motherboard or I could daisychain them on the end of a power supply cable marked (VGA/H.D.D). Also do I need both the 3 pin motherboard connector and 4 pin power supply connector, connected or are these two seperate option, which I merely need to choose one of (ie. Motherboard connection OR Power supply 4 pin connection). If so, which is better to choose?)
 

A:Case fan question and other power connections question

If you connect them to your mobo then it will be able to monitor their speeds via the yellow wire. If you connect them to your PSU it doesnt matter which 4 pin molex connector you fit them to as they all join up inside the PSU. Another option is to buy a fan speed controller and plug them into that, the advantage is that you can control the speed and therefore the ammount of noise they produce, the more expensive controllers can also monitor speeds and temperature(s).

Hope that helps. Rik.

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could inform me on what nic.exe, coo.exe, and dnar.exe are and if they are something to raise an eyebrow at. I have them showing up in processes on some of the computers I work on and not on some of the others. I can't seem to find any information on these processes and what their purpose are. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Also on a machine I work on, its an IBM Netvista, the machine comes up w/ an error related to csrss.exe. After some research I learned that this is a name which many hacks will use to disguise programs. I did some checking and in the processes I have two csrss.exe processes running. I can not end either one - I get the message they can't close they are windows blah blah blah's. However, on some of my other machines, my Dell Optiplex GX400 for example only shows up w/ one csrss.exe process. One other thing i noticed is that on the machines that have two csrss.exe processes running, one is running at about 1600k - 3000k and the other approx 180k, making me believe that the 180k one is not supposed to be there, when on my other machines, the csrss.exe process runs approx the same as the 1600k-3000k process on the NetVista. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Gigabyte B150M-D3H GSM w/ DDR3 1600, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit LAN, 2-Way CrossFireX, HDMI, DVI-D, VGA at Memory Express





4x DDR3 DIMM sockets for up to 32GB RAM (4x 8GB)
- Supports standard DDR3-1866 (OC) / 1600 / 1333MHz Non ECC UDIMMS




How long will it take for the i5-6400 (listed below) to get to around the $125 mark?
I was figuring to start with the G4400 then buy the i5-6400 later.

CPU
Pentium Processor G4400, 3.3GHz w/ 3MB Cache $85 2 core 2 threads
Core™ i5-6400 Processor, 2.7GHz w/ 6MB Cache $255 4 core 4 threads

Okay, I'm buying a new hard drive and I'm looking for the best deal I can find. I have a K8V special edition motherboard and a 120 GB hard drive (Maxtor, not sure if SATA or not). My motherboard can support 2 SATAs but beyond that I don't know how many hard drives I can support. What I'm looking at is a 300GB hard drive "Maxtor 300GB 7200RPG Ultra16 PATA Internal Hard Drive" with 133MB/sec transfer speed. For the same price ($149) I can get a 200GB SATA with 150MB/sec speed. Three questions:

1) What's PATA, and can my motherboard support it?
2) Which hard drive am I better off getting, assuming I can use both?

Next, I recently tried upgrading my Windows (from XP to XP <_< there was a problem with getting SP2). I made it to the point where you have to reset your computer and go from there, but when I did the Windows setup ran into a missing file and couldn't go further. I restarted and had the option of choosing whether I wanna start up in normal XP or in the XP setup, so my original Windows is intact. But now I get that choice whenever I turn my computer on, and I'd like to know how to remove the XP setup as an option for starting up. Thanks for the help guys.

Ive only had the privledge (and by that, I mean, enough money) to build a single CPU (with my brother, it was his) in my life. I recall it has (still works apart from mobo, only recently replaced) a intel core 2 quad. I see people talking about bent pins and stuff on CPUs, but I dont remember pins being on the core 2 quad. that was the easiest part I recall, just literally placed the chip in the socket (the heatsink, that was a headache). I dont recall any pins. Are pins literally pins as in thin rods sticking out of the bottom, or what?
 

A:Sorta random CPU question (no problems, just a question)

Most modern CPU's (Intel at least) no longer have pins on the CPU, but instead the pins are on the socket.

The newer socket 1155 and 1366 (and 2011 for that matter) are just like the Socket 775 you are experienced with the Core 2 Quad you installed, just slightly larger sockets.

It is still very possible to bend pins though, but in this way, you damage the motherboard (with the CPU socket) vs. the CPU. You must be careful when inserting the CPU since dropping it on a corner into the socket CAN bend and damage pins.

So if you've built a system with Socket 775/Core 2 Quad, you should have no problem with Core i3/i5/i7 and newer Intel sockets if this is what you plan to do. Everything is basically the same... just slightly different socket and DDR3 memory vs. DDR2, which are also very similar and just snap in the DIMM slots similarly.

I hope that helps! Good luck!

Hi i am currently running xp sp3 and was wondering if the fire wall it has built in is good enough or should i download 1 on line? and if so what 1 should i download.

Also a couple of friends of mine were having issues with there computers and the installed cc cleaner on to there computers and it cleaned out there registries and they say that there computer ran better. Now my computer isnt slow but it is not running like when i built it i mean i have done much downloading and stuff so but the loose of speed is not enough for anyone to notice but me. I just want to know is it worth downloading some kind of Registry cleaner or is it not. I have heard that they can mess up your computer so.

A:Fire Wall Question and Registry question

As far as firewalls go, I prefer a router. But Ive used zone alarm
in the past, worked pretty well, do a google, there is a free download.

You should have started another thread on the topic of reg cleaners.
I dont use them or recommend them as they can cause more harm
than good. Others will differ. In the future when having 2 questions
please post separately. Thks,,,,

If he were to use a proxy server would he be able to stop the RIAA from seeing his IP address when using Kazza or whatever he uses for P2P?

And here is my own personal question...how exactly does the RIAA find out who is file sharing?

I just wanted to know if I could do the following with no problem or if you cannot do it this way.

There is a windows 98 computer upstairs (with DSL) There is a modem--then a router---the windows 98 computer, I think he has the windows 98 computer upstairs hooked into the router and then another line in the router running downstairs to a windows XP SP1 computer. they both work fine. Here is my question.

He wants to add a third computer downstairs,so can it be like
THe modem then router then the windows 98 computer upstairs hooked into the router. Now is it possible to then plug like a four port hub into the router and have the line running downstairs and then take the windows xp that is already down there and plug it into the hub and then the new computer plug it into the hub and they would all have the dsl just like the two of them do now,

I guess I am asking can you plug the one compute upstairs into the router and then run a cable downstairs into a hub and plug the other two computers into the hub and they will all get DSL?

or do you have to plug the upstairs computer into the router like now and then plug two morre lines into the router and run them both downstairs and run one to each computer?

And as long as everything is going throught the router no matter which way it is done do you have to run anything special to get the DSL on all? Some step by step instructions would be nice but I really want to know if the hub thing will work the way I am describing it. Thanks... Read more

Firstly, I was looking at my logs for Spybot and it doesn't seem to detect anything from my second hard drive, which has the the same Progs installed as my main drive and SpyBot detects files from those. What gives?

Secondly, I was wondering if I should use Disk Defragmenter? Apparently, if you lose power while it's defragmenting, you're pretty much screwed because it moves your files.

I know it's best to use two of the exact same cards and I probably will do this, but I was wondering if 1. Could I use an MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming 4G and a MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming 4G Gold Edition? They are basically the same card. Here is a comparison between the two. http://www.msi.com/comparison/vga

2. I was wondering if my Corsair HX 850w PSU will have enough juice for them. I might overclock some. I'll be getting a i7 5820k (6-core CPU) with 16GB of DDR4 RAM. MSI X99S SLI Plus mobo and of course two GTX 970's. I'll also get the CM Hyper 212 EVO HSF as well. I have a WD 1TB 7200 RPM HDD and I'll be getting a Micron MX550 256GB SSD. I'll just get another MSI 970 like the one I have now, if the other is a problem. I have an Optiarc DVD-RW burner, but might get BR burner. I think my Corsair HX 850 watt PSU is enough, but I want to make sure. Also using a CM HAF 922 case, might upgrade to the 932. I currently have Windows 7HP x64.

Thanks in advance!
 

A:SLi Compatability Question and Wattage Question...

Yes, they should work since they are both GTX 970's. The Corsair HX 850 should also be enough, each card only draws 145 watts of power, you want at least a 500 watt PSU for a single card system and around a 750 watt or better for an SLI system.

I'm having a problem with my computer. It lags a lot now and sometimes after it lags badly enough, it crashes <an automatic and complete shutdown> before I can even touch anything. Right before it cuts off, it goes to a blue screen and talks about collection for a memory dump and also suggests that I utilize the memory diagnostics tool. Its usually so quick that's all the info I can actually give. I have used it twice to receieve no results. Since it has started I have wiped most of the programs I have installed with the exception of ventrillo, msn im, and yahoo im. I have also since done a defrag and disk cleanup. Still no changes. The thing thats funny is that it has only just recently started this... the reason why its funny is because I am using a notebook <Acer Extensa 5620Z> and I used to have World of Warcraft installed and played it daily. I would sometimes have lag issues, but in the year I had this laptop and running WoW... I never once crashed like that and never saw the memory dump. Now I'm trying a system restore, but I don't have any restore points prior to the 24 Oct 2009. Can you please help me to rectify this problem?

Hi people! My question is a little out this place, but I can't find the right forum for this question. Maybe matadors will move this to the right place for me. I'm looking for a device, that can take a Video Tape and a DVD-R, and copy that tape to the DVD, so that I have it on the DVD, not on an old fashioned tape anymore! I have a large library of videos, and I would like to transfer them on to a DVD (consume some space for instance). I saw this kind of device at Target, maybe I can find it on internet for a cheaper price! Your help is very appreciated!

So i have overclocked my system for the first time, i did it the "safe" way, increasing the "CPU Frequency" in the BIOS by 1 at a time. It seems like Frequency 200 is 2GHz. So when i reached 220, it was 2.20GHz.

But if i turn it up to 221, then the CPU runs at a clock speed of 1.78GHz.

I was thinking this could be because i use the stock cooling?

If so i need to buy a new cooler (which im thinking to do, a Zalman Fatal1ty should do.)

I am at 37c idle with this one now (the stock cooler)

Mobo: Asus A8N-SLI SE
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ @ 2.2GHz

Thx for help.
 

A:Overclock question {Nub question}

maybe your cpu heats up and the cpu/mobo automaticly underclocks the cpu for safety at 221fsb it's multiplier should be 8(original 10). (or it may be Cool 'n' Quiet) i am not sure.

The more I try and learn about backups and safe storage the more questions I have.

Here's my latest. I have two identical SATA III 1 Gb hard drives, designated "D Drive" under Win 7 64 bit Pro. They are under an Intel software RAID 1 on a Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 motherboard. All appears well. I have the OS and my two mail apps on C: Drive which is an SSD drive. I use Second Copy to automatically back up both mail apps to the RAID 1 D drives each night. I also use Z-DBackup to make a system image of the C Drive once a week, which it creates on the RAID1 pair. The RAID 1 pair (D Drive) with the system image is backed up to LTO4 tape once a week.

What happens if on of the RAID 1 pair of SATA III drives fails? I guess the Intel software RAID flags a fault? I then have to work out which of the 2 drives is dead, and swap it out? What if an identical drive is no longer available? Will any 1 Gb or larger SATA III drive work, paired with the one remaining original working drive?? Does the RAID rebuild occur automagically? How long might one expect it to take?

With a truly unlucky chain of events, leaving the PC dead or missing, say from a power surge, theft or whatever, and I just have my tape, how do I go about getting the C Drive image from it to a new PC? Do I run a repair disc, load the tape deck drivers and the SCSI card drivers (it runs on SCSI on an Adaptec card), then will there be enough "stuff" on the new PC to load ... Read more

A:Software RAID question, and NAS box software question

Welcome.

Regarding your questions, first I want to say that RAID 1 is not a viable backup solution. Its only purpose is to allow a system to continue to operate with a hardware failure of one of the hard drives until that drive can be replaced. It is imperative to have the data on the RAID backed up elsewhere.

If one drive fails, the controller will warn you so that you may replace the bad drive. It knows which one.
Depending on the size of the drive, it can take many hours to rebuild, but you can continue to use the system as normal. The rebuilding is transparent.

If you use dissimilar drives, the array size will be equal to the smallest drive and it is not guaranteed that all combinations of drives will work together. You may experience constant rebuilds or worse.

I cannot comment on how to get your system up from tape. I have never used it. With other backup methods, there is usually boot-able media that allows recovering the operating system.

Whether or nor another board can read what is on the RAID 1 will really depend on the controller. I have had luck using Intel controllers. In fact, the data was readable from a single disk without using RAID.

I doubt if a different NAS could use the disks should the box hardware fail. You may be able to get the data though, by connecting one of the disks to a system that can read the file system used by the NAS.
The redundancy is within the NAS while it is operational. It would be nice if you could just get any NAS hardw... Read more
