Wise way of outting it
There has been alot of discussion over the past few months in regards to Hosting Ethics. Ethics are what seperates a true host from a fly-by-night scam. I am posting this in effort to...
Unfortunately my name has been purchased, even my middle name (which is very uncommon, Iokepa) has been taken.
Restarted until August 31st
Has anyone noticed that there has been a sharp decline in internet useage over the past week. I am a member of several fourms and have seen this trend carry over to most of the forums....
There is sort of a way to get a domain for life. Several hosts include a domain for free for the life of your account.
Unfortunately you had to get into the game very early to nab a 2 letter domain. You can still get 3 letter domains from Internet Auction sites like eBay.
I have seen them go as high as $50,000
I am happy to hear that they are working out for you. We bash heads over at WebHostingTalk over certain things, but ultimately they are a great and solid host.
I had a form go in and do some design work for me about 2 years ago. The work he provided to me was so sub par, my dog could have done better. I rejected the work but he still demanded full...
I actually use Reseller Club for domains, This is the best option for Web Hosts because it allows you to set the price for your end users. The base price is around $7.00 for a .com. This is...
I would advise you to wait a bit longer before moving to AdSense. Google is VERY strict and tends to decline younger sites. I would try to get at least 10 pages of solid content...
Nice -> Understanding when I shatter high scores
^^ Nice - Pays attention to ther peoples Twitter Feeds.
Really cool posting, I just gave it a read.
Sorry, it is me.
I perfer monthly as well
Ouch - Sorry
Exactly, To those that dont want to manage a VPS or Dedicated Server, a Semi-Dedicated server is the best option. These are called VDS Accounts. They are the best mid level option
Thanks, sent a tweet (is he a forum memeber)?
I cant Disagree, a VPS is not a bad option IF you have a firm understanding of Linux. If not a Virtual Dedicated Server is the best option. (Contact me if you want to see one in action)
Open K-Disk.net in IE - K-Disk.net - FFMPEG Reseller Hosting Specialists - FFMPEG Active on All Plans and then Firefox. The IE is heavilly distorted. Fireox is only slightly distorted....
I has a designer re-do K-Disk.net. Unfortunately I paid him in advanced and he is now not returning my calls. There is a bug in the CSS on my site that is making the layout look wierd in...
Ahhhh, How did you know - Get out of my head....
Sundar will be next
Sundar will be next...
Ohh and congrats on all those Game Wins, I had to take back Mouse Race however. :brokenheart:
From reading several fourms, there is quite a bit of confusion on the definitions used in the hosting business. I am creating this thread to help explain the terms. This is a working...
K-Disk.net is sponsoring a Photo Contest Until August 31st. This contest is open to all current and future members of WebMasterPees.com. This contest is called "Funny Photo Shoots", as...
Rice or Pasta?
No - Something about falling long distances does not settle with me\\
EDIT : It is actually not the fall that scares me, it is the sudden stop at the end.
Do you like fishing?
Yes, the only problem is that cPanel has no "Full Restore" feature. this is why I add ZamFoo because it has a cp-restore feature.
Reputation should be more important then design and even price. I have seen countless hosting sites who's design is great, but their customer service is non existant.
Norton or McAfee?
I agree that backups are important (Speaking of which, I need to send you an e-mail for a new beta feature I want you to try with WMP). I use a service called UbuntuOne.com (Closed Beta). It is only...
DP - Just Kidding WMP
Dell or HP?
I have to admire the touch since the interface is easier to use
iPod or Zune?
I have never heard of any of them :)
GMail or MSN E-Mail?
No. However it can pay off if you pay your cards right, much the same as in professional sports. Many people grow up saying they want to be the best football player in the world, but only a very...
Desktop - Easier to upgrade :)
Cable internet or DSL Internet (Or Dial Up or Satalite or FIOS)
Gotta go with Lady Ga Ga on that one.
Enclycopedia or Wikipedia?
It depends. When I first moved to HostMonster several years ago, I will admit that I did not touch the Ad Credit for almost 2 years. At that point, I was just running a personal home...
Computer Games or Console Games?
Have you ever had a page that was in the top 100,000 in the Alexa Rankings?
Now it will be blm20000
Thanks. Let me check a few things and I will start a trial campaign
Unfortunately IE6 will not go away. There are still several businesses who still use Windows 2000.
I am just working on one of my CDN Servers.
I have to agree. YouTube has gone downhill, however one of the reasons seems to be caused in a massive reduction of Ad Revenue. YouTube has actually become a finanical loss to Google ofer the past...
Yes - Starcraft and Guildwars
Do you have a Day Job?
Buy (If there is not an Open Source version)
Coffee or Tea?
I use Reseller Club, The only complaint I have is the interface is very counter-productive. If you have WHMCS or ClientExec, it comes with a free Domain Reseller Account. Or you can contact me if you...
Unfortunately it is not easy. Some comapnies will give ESTABLISHED companies the ability to purchase the credits at a highly discounted rate. (Like $5.00 per $50.00 credit). You must...
Tell me how it goes if you get one. It is great :)
Hello, can you tell me how many hits you get per day and how many are unique?
Yup, I was right, now Farrhad will be next
Nope - K-Disk is next
I have seen several tutorials on starting a Web Hosting Business, but I feel like several of them are missing a few things, so I thought I would combine several of the concepts into one...
For those of you who have not heard of the new service Google has in beta, they are offering a free service that will give all users their own 2nd phone number. This number allows both...
I am siiting in the FT Lauderdale Airport and I was thinking to myself. What could a geek like myself do with my new smartphone?
So I decided to open a Twitter Account and give a...
Wow, you had me scared for a while
No - Currently Single
Do you have a job?
E-Mail or Letters
The Great Divide in my pants :nerd:
(From the transformers soundtrack)
I would answer 50 questions a day with about 15% best answer.
I have used Yahoo Answers when I used to run an affiliate site. It did quite well and I used to get 200-800 unique visitors a day while using it.
Before I became a host, I tried GoDaddy. I closed by account in less then 24 hours.
They have become masters of packing as many people as possible on a single server, I believe the count is...
Yes - Listen to ALOT of Music
Do you like seafood?
Yes - I have to (or my boss will attack me)
Can you access cPanel or WHM yet? (LOL)
Do you like to travel
I currently host alot of domains on K-Disk, They are spread out on over 30 nameservers and over 50 private nameservers.
I have never used them myself, but their plans do look attractive. My only concern is that the lower plans are WAY too weak to properly run cPanel. I would never run web hosting with...
My advice - Stay away from music. Often when I am searching the web at my day job and I com accross a site with music, I quickly close the page.
Yes, they technically count as links, Just be careful what site you are linking too, Most Link Exchange systems do not give you a choice.
To tell you the truth, Paid is the way to go. There are several problems with hosting at home
-No 24/7 monitoring
-Most ISPs Block or Restrict this
From what I understand it still matters (in a positive way)
I use Dedicated, but since I am a web host, that is sort of the norm.
Do you mind if I ask why you are looking into a Dedicated Host, maybe I can help to determine if it is needed?
Please feel free to drop me an e-mail @ KMyers @ K-Disk.com and I will be happy to offer some one-on-one assistance with this
Welcome to the forums, it is great to have another host in here. Feel free to ask any questions and I will try my best to answer you. I have been a host for a few years.
Welcome Kev, Nice to have a Texan in here
Are both hosts using cPanel, if so, you can log into cPanel and select Backup Wizard > MySQL Databases. This will download a compresed snapshot of your databases. On the new host log into...
Well Done, It looks great

Welcome Logan, Unfortunately a poll cannot be added once the forum has been posted, however I must agree with Farrhad on YouthAndBusinessDOTcom . It sounds very professional
Welcome Aboard Thunder, nice to have you around
Sorry for being late, but Aloha from Sunny South Florida
Point Taken, Hosting is not for everyone, it must be ran as a business first. There is nothing worse then a friends account being suspended so if you intend to host your friends, please lay out some...
Always Be In Your Pants
Singing or Dancing?
Hello Eclipse, Someone has delivered these to me, however I will still give free hosting for other banners if you want to make some more :)
Personally I do not like Annual Billing. I have been with a company in the past that I payed for a year up front and the company vanished after 3 months.
With that said, I believe it is a matter...
Music CDs or Online Music Stores (example iTunes or Amazon)?
Teletubbies in my pants (Babysitting my 1 yr old nephew)
I dont want to see it die, but I would like to see it "re-born". The mods need to be given "da-boot" and get some fresh faces in there. I have seen WAY too many people get banned without any reason...
I use the one built into my computer Keyboard :) It is made by Logitec and I love it
Great to hear, If you want, I can give you a free 30 day trial at K-Disk so you csn test the water when you are ready, Just shoot me an e-mail.
Welcome Keir, I hope you enjoy it here. I am sure there are several other girls here.
I also love to design WebSites, do you also blog?
One question, Do you have a reseller account or just a standard hosting account? If you do have a reseller account then by all means host him (You can do it for free or charge...
Good point, Google has a strict anti-adult policy. They will terminate any site who has adult content on it.
Well put, however when possible you should try to get all of the TLDs for the name you choose. This way you dont need to worry about squatters.
@Farrhad - Try Mozilla Thunderbird, it is pretty quick and stable. However lately I have been using the GHS (Google Hosted Services) GMail and have it setup to check all of my external accounts.
Wow, is that 800 USD ?
Wow, I cant believe I missed this, but happy birthday Gaya.
Mine is a cartoon thatt sort of looks like me when I forget to shave. I did it in a cartooning program in Ubuntu
You dont have yours set as an Avatar, You do however have it set up in your profile
I love the simple and clean interface to your site. It works well for you.
Ahh, I switched the old template last night - The Live Site is now active https://k-disk.net/
Welcome Matt, I hope you have fun here with us
Welcome aboard, you have come to the right place for Forum and Blog tips
Well there is nothing wrong with Adult Banners, as long as you have an Adult Blog or Site to place them on. The Ads should fit your site. but as Farrhad said, you should screen the site first.
Sure - I will actually post a short sample for everyone. Please note this is only 2 minutes - http://k-disk.net/movie-demo/movie6-demo.wmv
As part of my K-Disk Summer Madness Sale, I am reducing the price of our 7 Part Series to get a website started and generate traffic. This package is normally $14.99 but for the next...
I would be interested, do you have any history of the domain names (What was placed there in the past)?
Aloha to you as well, hope you have fun here
I just want to put out an APB (All Points Bulletin) on Ad Space. There have been tons of blogs who have sold ad space to one of the many "Rogue Anti-Virus" Providers without even...
SWEET -This will keep me up all night for sure
I also have to disagree. Web 2.0 is more of a technique rather then a word. If that is not the case DHTML, AJAX, XML-RPC and SOAP would all need to be added to the dictionary.
Welcome Romanite, Let me know if I can do anything to make you feel at home.
I am putting my finishing changes on K-Disk.net and want your input.

Great Tips, The .htaccess should be used on all Linux/Apache Servers.
Thanks - Added
Thanks, I will add and update these with as much as possibe.
I thought I would be the first to break in this new forum with a general list of security tips. I will keep this list updated, so if you have any, just post and Ill add them here.
To be honest. Linux is the best option for me. Mac and Windows has several options for developers, but as Simon said, it is a matter of choice.
To be honest, I have not tried it, but have seen some impressive work based off of JQuery
I am offering 6 Free Months of Hosting to anyone who can modify 4 small Banners for me (PSD's Included), This should not take more then a few minutes to do. I am creating a banner...
Bacon or Sausage (I dont think its a fair question for you Farrhad)
Football if I had to choose (Sports is not my thing)
Warm Weather or Cool Weather
That sort of makes sense, Automotive Parts in large have a high markup. It would make sense that they would pay more then something that does not in a PPC Setup.
Of Course Ad Placement is KEY
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA - This is great. Sure I will look into the service as soon as I get my blog up to par
Welcome poncho& to WebMasterPeers - Please feel free to ask any questions about the Web Hosting Business and I will try my best to answer them for you. We do have several other Hosts that are part of...

Yes - No I am not goth
Do you like to explore new places
It all depends on its intended use - Get a PC for general home use. Get a Mac for Web Design and Graphics. The Intel Based Macs are more expensive but a good option if you want to run Windows + MacOS...
Honestly I do feel that the effectiveness of Pop-Up ads has declined in the past few years. Most browsers now have a built in Pop-Up blocking tool that is active by default.
There are "Pop-Overs"...
No - Never cought on in the US

Windows or Linux?
Having a quality first page is key

LxLabs is the creator of LxAdmin, If you have used a VPS in the past, it was most likely used LxAdmin.

Wow Nick, They look great. I will PM You a Promo code to Cash in on your hosting
EDIT : Promo code to cover the hosting has been sent
That would be great, if you can send the Vector. Also dont forget to PM me with your prize
I am sorry, the person who created the logo never gave me the Vector Format, I have been going back and Forth with him for the past year on that
I am unable to reach the person who does my normal graphics, and I really need a few ASAP. I am willing to give 6 months - 1 year of free hosting. The offer is open to 10 people. The...

Here are a few tips from some of my sites
Joomla seems to be good, and supports TONS of plugins. I tried it once, however the admin interface is not as intuitive as Wordpress.
I actually custom designed the software that runs my site and...
When I buy domains, I normally buy the .com, .net, .org, .us if they are all, available. It prevents domain squatters.
Without Electricity, Computers would fail to exist. I have to go with that. Penecillin is OVERused, I dont want to turn this into a biology fourm, but think of resistance
