What’s the best voice chat system for gaming?

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting Comparison

It is not your fault you got confused. The fact is, not all domain web hosting services are created equal. You need to know what you want so you can get the one best suited to your needs.

Here is a frequently-asked question we hear often from our website design clients:

My friend and I want to do a Minecraft let’s play, but we’re not sure what voice chat system to use.

I don’t want any network-lag for the person who is connecting (The non-host) but at the same time, I want good video quality.

Oh, and it would be REALLY nice if it was an easy server setup.

Any ideas?

Do not make the mistake of thinking unlimited bandwidth and diskspace is all you need in a hosting service. There are a lot more to ask yourself before you decide on which web hosting is the best for you.

What Do You Really Need in a Web Host?

Use this list to check for what you truly need:

  • Does the company reputation matter to you – the brand name, history, dependability, stability, and profitability of a company can mean a lot to you if you are a web designer, hosting reseller or a website developer.
  • General support – what kind of support do you need? Is chat support important? What other support methods do you prefer. What kind of response time can you tolerate?
  • Technical support, Sitebuilder and Script Installer – are you tech-savvy or do you need as much help as you can? Do you need to build a website quickly? Do you need to install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento or other free scripts?
  • Support hours – know if you need real 24/7 support. Where are you located?
  • Server location – do you know that local, regional, national, or worldwide server makes very little difference to most visitors. Reliability and uptime is more important most of the time.
  • Growth possibility – do you need a host that can accomodate your growth? The best website hosts should have options for you to upgrade your plan.
  • Backups – can you do your own website backup? Is a good frequency and easy recovery of the backup something you should consider in a host? If what you need is the best online backup, you probably do not want a website hosting after all.

The next step is to understand the ten important features to find in a quality web hosting. An outstanding web host:

  1. lets you try their service for free or at super low price,
  2. has friendly Live Chat available 24/7 so it does not matter where you are in the world,
  3. gives huge webspace at no extra cost,
  4. offers more than enough bandwidth at no extra cost,
  5. can be easily upgraded to VPS or one of the best dedicated server plans if and when your business require.
  6. gives unlimited add-on domains,
  7. has excellent support and rated at least A+ by Better Business Bureau (BBB),
  8. has at least 30 days money back guarantee,
  9. has easy-to-use Site Builder for quick website creation,
  10. has Fantastico and QuickInstall to quickly install apps like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, OSCommerce, ZenCart and more,

Many experienced web developers use Hostgator. If need a quality hosting plan, website experts usually recommend going with Hostgator because they are the best best domain host in the world today.

The Hostgator reviews will tell you that HG has an amazingly long, 45 days money back guarantee so you have ample time to test them out. They are rated A+ by Better Business Bureau which shows their commitment to customer satisfaction. You also do not have to pay for the first month. You can just try their fully functional hosting service – you pay only $ 0.01 (you need to use the exclusive coupon). Do you know any other hosting company that believe in themselves so much they can give you that kind of assurance? Anybody can grab an account from Hostgator for almost FREE.

Hostgator Compared with Other Web Hosts

No web hosting service is perfect. If you compare Hostgator with other hosts, they do not offer some things these companies offer:

  1. Free domain name – but you can easily get a domain name from the best domain registrar such as Godaddy or Namecheap for $ 10 or less. Do not forget that it is a hassle to take the free domain name you receive at a web host and move it to another host.
  2. You need to pay full price after your first invoice – you do not expect such great service and support at $ 0.01 forever, do you? Hostgator is not one of those free hosting service. It is like they say, you get what you pay for.

If you are unsure if HG can meet your needs, or you have specific question about something, try the Live Chat at HG. They are friendly, fast and knowledgeable. They are available for sales, billing or even technical support for 24/7 at no extra charge.

Clone a XEN VPS server that resides on a LVM / Logical Volume Manager

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting


We thought it would be important to share this information as it might be interesting to someone who wants to replicate the same VPS across many instances in order to create a farm of web servers (for example).

This uses very similar concepts to our LVM XEN backup post a while back.

Step 1: Take a snapshot of the current VPS

This is simple. Use the lvcreate command with the -s option to create a snapshot of the running VPS. We assume your VPS is 5GB in size, so just replace that with however large your VPS is :

lvcreate -s -L 5GB -n snapshot_name /dev/VolGroup00/running_vps_image

Step 2: Create your new VPS

This is important. You want to create a new vps, assign a MAC and IP address first and let the creation process fully finish. Then shut the VPS down.

Step 3: Copy the snapshot to the new VPS

All you have to do is use the dd command to transfer the snapshot image to the newly created VPS image :

dd if=/dev/VolGroup00/snapshot_name of=/dev/VolGroup00/new_vps_image

All done! Dont forget to remove the snapshot after your done with it :

lvremove -f /dev/VolGroup00/snapshot_name

Start up the new vps and you should have a carbon copy of the previous vps!



How to copy a cPanel/WHM account to your server using its to login info – WHM Tutorials

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Cpanel

How to copy a cPanel/WHM account to your server using its login info • There is an additional way to transfer an individual account from another server to yours. Unlike the other methods for account transfers, this does not need root SSH access to remote server. • Instead, you will be able to connect using the account’s login information. While, this does come in handy when you can’t obtain root access, this method works only when transferring from cPanel/WHM server. • If you are transferring an account from some other cPanel, you’ll have to use transfer feature requiring root SSH access. • You can always check a cPanel server version by logging in WHM. • Go to Transfers menu and click on Copy an account from another server with account password option. • You will see some usage notes at the top of the displayed page. Scroll down. • Fill in server to copy from, domain name, username to copy, user’s password and other options. Click on Copy account button to proceed. • First, this tool will create and download a backup of account from remote server. Once it is locally extracted, a new account will be generated. The account will be transferred.

Backup, compress and encrpyt your git repository

Posted by: Admin  :  Category: Web Hosting


I thought I’d share a quick script in the scope of backing up GIT repositories for the purposes of encrypted and compressed off-site backups.

Unfortunately git does not have an equivalent of svnadmin dump or export, which can conveniently be piped to stdout.

What the above scenario would do is shorten the amount of commands a script would require in order to accomplish a similar task.

Find below a quick bash script that clones a repository, tar/gzip’s it, encrypts the archive and keeps 7 days worth of archive files :

# GIT Backup script
# Written by Star Dot Hosting

todaysdate=`date "+%Y-%m-%d"`

#check command input
if [ -z "$  1" ];
        echo "GIT BACKUP SCRIPT"
        echo "-----------------"
        echo ""
        echo "Usage : ./ reponame , i.e. yourdomain.git"
        echo ""
        exit 0

echo "GIT Backup Log: " $  currentmonth > /var/log/backup.log
echo -e "----------------------------------------" >> /var/log/backup.log
echo -e "" >> /var/log/backup.log

# Find and remove files older than 7 days
/usr/bin/find /data/git/git-backups -type f -mtime +7 -delete >> /var/log/backup.log 2>&1

# Begin creating working directory to clone into
/bin/mkdir /data/git/git-backup/working >> /var/log/backup.log 2>&1
/usr/bin/git clone /data/git/$  1 /data/git/git-backup/working >> /var/log/backup.log 2>&1

# Archive working directory into repo name encrpyted tar file
/bin/tar -czvf - /data/git/git-backup/working | /usr/bin/openssl enc -aes-256-cbc -pass pass:abcABC123 -e | dd of=/data/git/git-backup/$  1.tar.gz.enc >> /var/log/backup.log 2>&1

# Remove working directory
/bin/rm -rf /data/git/git-backup/working >> /var/log/backup.log 2>&1

FYI if you ever needed to decrypt the openssl encrypted backup archive, the command below should do the job :

openssl aes-256-cbc -d -pass pass:abcABC123 -in $  1.tar.gz.enc -out decrypted.tar.gz
