Post by: pro on October 20, 2016, 02:55:53 PM
I found this free website hosting company called 000webhost (https://www.000webhost.com/927755.html), are they reliable, has anybody ever tried using them?

If your just playing around and getting some practical experience, 000webhost is fine. But if your setting up a page you hope to get traffic too and visitors, then pay. Godaddy always has great deals for domain name + 12 months hosting for like $1 a month

You have 1+1 and many others. Go Daddy usually gets you at the "keep the domain private @ $7.99-$9.99" . There are few coupons that remove that as well.

Correct, there are many others. I just like GoDaddy, but that's just my opinion. I've tried them all, and godaddy has and will be my favorite.

The keeping private is on the domain, this has nothing to do with hosting. I use Google Domains, a regular .com domain costs $12/yr and there's free privacy on it. FYI GoDaddy gets you everywhere, you can signup for $5/mo hosting and mysteriously end up with a $200 bill that auto renews, they're as shady as it comes

I was correct. To host your own domain requires a subscription.

I"ll explain my needs in detail, perhaps someone knows of a solution.


I registered a domain for use as business email. I signed up for a free domain email service (zoho.)  As I have no http host, a visit to my domain gets a Server not found error.  I'd like to have a page load that says  mydomain.com  with a Contact Us link to the business email.

On Google Search it still says that:

But going into the site it does not have this words or anything similar. It says for pricing clearly that this is one of the differences between the Free and the Paid Basic plans:

And when I create a site it doesn't let me publish it to a custom domain, saying that this is a paid feature:

Oddly enough, I wondered why Google still shows that it does give free also for custom domains, and I found that this is still that page description:

Stay away from godaddy for anything besides registration
Based on personal experience, I would stay away from them for domain registration too.

For years I had a .CH domain which I registered through switch.ch. At a certain point, Switch.ch decided to exit the business of registering domains (IINM they maintain the Swiss equivalent of ICANN.org) and they offered a few alternatives in order to keep the .CH registration. I used GoDaddy, and then at some point this year, I stopped receiving emails on my .CH account. I logged into my  GoDaddy account, only to find out that the domain registration had recently expired. I received no warning or e-mail notification. I tried renewing online, but was unable. I called support, and was told that the domain is no longer available. I contacted Switch.CH and was told that registration recently expired, and only the existing owner/registrar can renew (but GoDaddy told me they can't).

I ended up having to wait 90 days from the expiration in order to be able to register with a different service. I first tried Hosteur.com, as they seemed to offer the best deal, but they turned out to be a scam. Took money, didn't do anything, nor did they respond to any emails or support requests through their website  (I now see that they sent me a response to my support request more than a month after I opened the ticket saying that domain is not available - obviously, since by now I had registered it using a reputable provider). I disputed the charge through PayPal and eventually got my refund. I ended up registering at domains.ch.

I've been using godaddy for years across many of their services. I've had dozens of domains for personal and business use. I even have some sites still hosted on the original plans that have been grandfathered over.  I've watched their evolution over the years from the punky scantly clad women who used to be their marketing to the current much more professional looking brand and I must say I haven't truly had any major disappointments plus I find their support to be excellent.

Just sayin...

Were all the domains you registered managed by ICANN.org, or did you register any domains that are managed by a foreign organization? That might be why I had different experience, for some reason they think .CH belongs to Switzerland, little do they know that it stands for Crown Heights.  :D

Get a cloud server, and then make it PCI compliant, by installing, configuring and maintaining all the PCI controls.
Make sure you have two-factor authentication to your server, no shared logins, separation of duties, e.g. development/production.
Use AES-256 encryption, do not store CVV data, etc.

Hosting on a website on a "PCI Compliant server" doesn't make you completely PCI compliant. Perhaps the hosting provider,
provides a Managed Firewall, SSL Certificates, and does regular network scans of the server for you, fulfilling the requirements
of Merchant Level: 4.  -- But PCI compliance also should include lots of policies and controls that are implemented by the end-user
themselves.

Are there any reliable free hosting company's?
000webhost has poor security. Even though millions of people use it. I was hacked a little while ago, Palestinian hackers took over my site. There is no customer service and no one to talk to. Only forums which could be very difficult to navigate once you were hacked.
I moved to google domains and moved over my site to a paid hosting.

I just got back an expired domain from 1and1 for no charge ( officially it's $50 ) and it was listed as a premium domain for $165. I paid $11.89 for the domain plus hosting for the year.

Based on google results you need to allow remote in transport-level connections by commenting out the default
Code: [Select]
bind-address = 127.0.0.1 to 
Code: [Select]
#bind-address = 127.0.0.1

I have domain listed for sale on godaddy.

When one searches for that domain at domains.google.com, it comes up as unavailable. How do I change that? I want to come as
"available - premium domain $xxxxx"


Any input is appreciated.

Yes, obviously the list price won't be 0.99, what I meant was that a google search will give you codes you can use to get the 0.99 domain unless you have used many codes before and your account can't get them anymore.

I can try searching some later tonight.

That's how domains are transferred (with an EPP transfer code). Someone maybe trying to steal it from you

Actually, just read it again, looks like a CSR which is part of the process of creating a valid SSL certificate (for https)

So I'm trying to install a ssl certificate on my website. I'm using sslforfree.com I want to do the manual verification so it tells me to make a folder called .well-known and in that a folder called acme-challenge .

I did that through the file manager on my cpanel. I think I put them in the main directory. Then I uploaded the two verification files there.

Now when I click on the links to check if the file is uploaded I get a 404 page not found error.

I tried going to mysite.com/.well-known and it shows a directory of some sort. But if I go to mysite.com/.well-known/acme-challenge it gives me a 404

Anybody know what the problem could be?

You're referring to the .  of .well-known? I haven't tried that

When I go to my site.com/.well-known I don't see acme-challenge as a folder. I see a link to parent directory and another folder called pki-validation

Is it possible that you have 2 different ".well-known" folders? try changing the name for whatever and trying to access it again with the browser. If it works then there is a ".well-known" folder in another directory and that is the one you should edit.

If it fails, then it would be really strange that you don't see the same folders inside the browser and the cPanel.

It seems like you're right. I tried changing the folder name but I can still access mysite.com/.well-known and it shows the pki folder.

Fastcomet.com I haven't used them but they seem decent plus you get a free domain forever. So that's a savings of $10 a year. It's $2.95/month with 3 year commitment. There is a 45 day satisfaction guarantee if need be.


Also just mentioning if you want to consider an ultra cheap host. I used asurahosting.com for $12/year (with coupon is $10)
My website goes down on average once a month for a half hour or so :)
But they actually have pretty quick support. It took them less than a half hour every time I emailed them to reply.

if you go that route you might consider setting my yourcompanyname@gmail.com and using that instead of your personal email account, to make it separate from your own stuff, and so that if you by mistake send from the wrong address it won't look funny.

Buy the domain from https://www.namesilo.com/

Do they do the spoof prevention.


And you can only use their webmail platform. I used migadu, but now they charge for mail

Usually cheaper

Yes of course

Was looking at this.

I also used migadu for a bit for a now defunct domain so the fact that they started charging didn't matter to me. The zoho email is forwarded to my gmail, I can count on one hand the number of times I actually logged into the zoho webapp over the past few years.

Its not true. Sorry.
I called Godaddy to find out. Email forwarding ( with out replying) is $3.
A whole email to forward and to respond is $72 a year.

I saw the Zoho Plan is that better then using Google for everything. Since with Google, Domain costs $12 & then you can set up Domain forwarding and domain sending just shows up as [inbox name] via Gmail.com

Afaik that's the only way. But do you plan on having a website or only buying the domain so you can have that email?

Only for the email. I have a few domains that i do this for with no site attached.

So that's what I'm asking. Why not use a regular email.

I personally always check the domain of an email to see the website.

What do you mean by regular email? gmail acct?

1) I always want to own the website of my business name. Even if I dont have the need for a site right now. Last thing I need is having a competitor snatch it for $1 and redirect business.
2) It looks more professional to have whacked1@whacked1.com rather then whacked1@gmail.
3) I want to own employees emails. I dont wnat them using their personal email 
4) The cost is very efficient

So 1st year is C$0.99 but Renews at C$24.99/yr

For some reason, I feel better about just getting from a place that charges $9/yr including renewals.

Google Domains is around $12 then email is free connected right into Gmail. You could buy GSuites but no reason if looking for basic stuff.

Actually showed up for me as C$15.48 for two years.
C$30 for 3 years
C$60 for 5 years
I would have done it if not for that I already bought the domain with Google.

I've found that namesilo is usually the same price or cheaper than namecheap. Overall I think they are the cheapest well established registrar

You can always transfer out. If that's too tedious (and it's not an important website), you can wait for the year to end and it expires, then reissue with whichever site you'd like.

No it varies
Quote
ICANN ( the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) charges a mandatory annual fee of $0.18 for each year of domain registration, renewal or transfer. For example, the fee for a one-year .com domain registration will be $0.18 while it is $0.36 for a two-year .com domain registration.
