Hosting several sites on one account

Q: Hosting several sites on one account


First of all, I dont know if this is the right spot to ask about hosting, but since Techspot has helped me with a lot of computer related problems, I thought Id give it a try...

Anyways, Im about to buy a hosting plan from Hostgator, but I want to use one account to host at least 3 different sites (top domains, like, and I know the reselling account would be the most effective, but I dont need to have a different cPanel for each user.

Can this be done with a Baby plan? Im going to buy domain names from another company, but I guess that doesnt matter. Im new to all this hosting stuff, so any help will be appreciated.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

that's all up to the hosting site policies - - don't hold your breath.

Wile I am in the posting mood. Just thought I would ask the question. Is it possible for me to host/and play a call of duty server from my laptop or desktop?
When I was younger I played games like the delta force collection of games. And could just go into the game, click host server. And then gradually people would join my game as they seen it on the lobby.
Is this possible with any of the call of duty games for PC? I assume it needs some network configuration
If anyone could help me do it I would be really gratefull. I have my Nat port configured to open. But I would like to host a server and have it free for anyone to join

Hey all! I've been facing this problem for quite a long time even after upgrading my RAM. The problem is that on specific sites like Facebook, Dailymotion, etc, the audio playback is quite fine but the video playback is slow, laggy, choppy etc. Is it my computer's problem? Well, my graphics is quite low. By quite low, I mean only 32MB. I don't face this problem on Youtube and players like JW players(I guess) which is used in some sites.

Any ideas or suggestions?


A:Slow video playback on specific sites

Yeah it's probably you GPU, try viewing the videos in lower quality.

I have an: DIXONH55ITX Socket 1156 Advent Firefly FP 3104 System Motherboard

I'm looking to upgrade for 2 main reasons.

1.) Upgrade my Ram, (as the limit of ram for this motherboard is 4gb.)
2.) More than 1 PCI-E slot. (There's only one on this motherboard.)

But my main question is:
What do I need to take into account when upgrading my Motherboard?
(Compatibility issues etc.)

Also any motherboard recommendations (under 200). As I'm planning on upgrading my computer to a gaming rig.

Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

A:What do I need to take into account when upgrading my motherboard?

Not quite understanding you. Are you wanting to keep all other parts and just upgrade mobo, ram and gpu?:

It sounds to me like you are wanting to build an entire new system. If so, give us a budget and what should be included (monitor, windows etc.).

Online gaming pc and xbox live both work great Websites are hit and miss Okay a little back story On around I woke up to find a very spastic internet connection Video games like world of warcraft steam games etc worked just fine No Most web won't issues.. load others at with all, no do sites sluggishness whatsoever Most web sites won't load at all, others do with no issues.. However basic websites all widely varied and unconnected would sometimes load other times they would just pretend they were loading circle repeatedly spinning like it would happen anytime You could leave that up for an hour sometimes without it timing out I chalked it up to a number of things We d just had several storms roll through one of which being a hurricane Two days later after work we called the cable provider because it hadn t improved even a little bit and I work with animals and have to routinely do research associated with my job I d get maybe of websites to load some I d never been to would work great others wouldn t even load when I frequented them in the past Yet this entire time we can STILL play online games on either the computer of the Xbox The man from the cable company ran us through some basic things they pinged various sites everything came back fine even for sites that refused to load After an hour on the phone the man was stumped Everything on their end and ours both appeared to be just fine So he tells us to give it a little time maybe something was slightly off Told us to call back in a few days if the problem didn t resolve Well two days later there was no change whatsoever We called back got the same sort of run around and basic tests finally they say to just bring the router to the local office and swap it out because that s the only possible thing they can think of We did this morning and nothing No change Exact same issues I ve since then searched through old and new forums trying to find a concrete way to get this back in order but resetting winsock and things of that nature have done nothing For details Windows Main OS is Mozilla but tried google chrome and IE with identical results Norton anti-virus have also disabled this and the firewall just to be sure but no luck Spybot search and destroy had used it in the past but only reinstalled it after issues began just to be sure There are two computers that are run through the modem with identical issues and one wireless laptop ARRIS router from Cable One have went into the configuration screens for it but have not been able to note anything amiss Right now I am able to look these things up because google works fine if I just want to search Clicking the links that pop up as a result either takes several clicks will pretend like it s loading but sit there spinning indefinitely or very rarely just time out altogether However I have taken to clicking the cached version of the website and that works just fine even when I have never been to the site myself personally ANY help would be appreciated It s very frustrating to pay so much for a service and then when you do finally have time off or actually need to research you are kind of just out of luck yet I could take a lazy day and play video games without problem Maybe my router is trying to get me to take a vacation Really don t want to reformat if I can avoid it and considering it s affecting multiple machines I m not sure it would help nbsp

A:Most web sites won't load at all, others do with no issues..

I'm using Firefox and it shows me some critical info when I access a URL

looking up xxx
connecting to xxx
waiting on xxx
done and the page is shown
(1) is the DNS lookup - - if this takes too long, the browser should show a timeout
(2) after finding the IP address of the url, this is where the connection is made and there can be
multiple issue at this point

connection reset (ie too many concurrent requests)
completed connection but no data at all
(3) data is being read by the browser and will continue in this state until there is nothing else to send.
Chrome & Opera will stall here forever {nothing shown} if (4) can not be reached

one test of the URL in question is to use TRACERT DOMAIN.NAME to see if it's possible to even
reach that server right now.

Cracks propagating across my laptop's screen have rendered it immobile; a stationary VGA monitor has temporarily restored operationability. The proprietary repair service estimate is exorbitant, i.e. more than the laptop is new. Undiscouraged, a replacement screen search yielded numerous sites dedicated to affordable, "replica" screens. What is their trustworthiness & product compatibility/reliability?

Yes, just make sure the replacement part number matches the original number and choose glossy or matte surface. I prefer matte surface over glossy. EBay is my source and I use PayPal

I just received a new Samsung Series 9 laptop with Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. I am in the process of setting it up. It is connected to the internet through my router, just like my Lenovo laptop (which I am using to type this) is connected. However, even though it shows it is connected, it won't connect!!. I found some kind of test that came with the Samsung and ran it -- it said everything was fine EXCEPT for the last thing -- the ping FAILED. How do I find out what is wrong and how do I fix this?

Till now, I've been using esnips for (non bit torrent) free file sharing. Problem is:

esnips started requiring the esnips download manager for any esnips download and
The new esnips installer includes sneakware: it installs its own home page, search page, etc. unless one carefully reviews and unchecks all the installation options
So everytime i give someone a file sharing link i don't want to worry about warning them about the sneakware (and worse yet, they overlook the options and install the sneakware by mistake)
Any other good site recommendations? And would you know how they compare to ensips offer of free 5GB storage with 200MB limit per file?

A:Recommendations for free file sharing sites?

DropBox is pretty awesome; I use it a lot. If you upload via the desktop app, there's no limit on the file size, but you're limited to 300MB per file if you use the web browser uploader. The max for free storage is 2GB I believe.

A:Computer for web hosting

Almost anything will do. If traffic is low, heck, you can use a laptop (I've done it many times).

The much bigger issue is your ISP connection. Your End-User License may have a
clause restricting running ANY server (they want you to purchase a Server connection).
With that clause, they can monitor port 80 (and others) or restrict them such that you
will not make services available to the Internet.

A second issue is your IP address and Domain Name. If you purchase a Domain Name,
then you need your ISP to update their DNS to include your system.
Without a Domain Name, you need a subscription for

Well recently on my borthers computer they have been having trouble getting on protected sites i.e. email. i have scanned for viruses using norton anti virus, i also did a system restore but i couldn't go that far back since i do not know when the problem started. i thought it might just be internet explorer so i tried using firefox and avant however those can't even connect to a site when used on this computer. so i'm wondering f any one knows why this is happening and how i can fix this?

A:Unable to go on protected sites

If you think it may be spyware then you need to go to the Security and the Web forum and read If your system is infected. Read this before deciding whether to CLEAN or REFORMAT. and then Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions.

Once you have done that, you need to make a post in the Security and the Web forum, not here.

And btw, if Norton doesn't find anything it doesn't mean you don't have a spyware problem. Norton is absolute crap, you really should get rid of that awful and next to useless resource hog.

I have a Belkin wireless router, l have 2 PC's connected to it and both cant get into selected sites - UK lottery being just one of many

Can anyone tell me if there are any settings in the router that can be altered to allow access to sites that l cant currently get in to

Both PC's worked fine before going wireless now both have the same problem - I have set IE settings to the minimum on everything but it makes no difference so l am assuming it has something to do with the router settings

Thanks in advance

A:Problem Accessing Some Sites Via Belkin

Can you check that you definitely have a connection by going to another site that you have never visited before? Sometimes it can seem like the connection is working, when actually its just getting the pages from your cache. (Although, if you posted that message from one of the PC's then you definitely have a connection).

If you are definitely connected, but you can't see some specific sites, I would struggle to help. If you don't have any software that might be interfering (pop up blockers / firewall / virus / spyware / adware / cookie blocker / any software that basically blocks a site if it doesn't like something about it), then its most likely a setting in the router. I once had that issue and someone fixed it for me, but I forgot what its called... If I remember, I'll post back.

Since this is still related to the other topic i posted, I figured I would just start another one instead of going on with the other one forever. Can someone please describe the process of getting a hosting domain & where to get one & for how much? I would like to know where to get the domain, how much it would cost per month/year, what kind of software I should use for the FTP sharing, & how to set the options up so this will work from any PC either inside or outside my local LAN. Also, if you do purchase a domain does that still put you in breach with your local ISP? I'm really new to the networking/sharing stuff & it's all a learning experience for me still. For whoever replies I really appreciate your help!

P.S. -- FREE PUNCH & PIE!! :grinthumb

A:File Sharing/Hosting

What is this for? Do you want to host stuff on your home computer or do you need a dedicated server with a fast internet connection in some hosting company?

At the simplest, you go to and register a free hostname. Then you configure your router or the computer to update the hostname whenever your IP address changes. Now you can access your computer from anywhere on the internet using your registered hostname.

Use some free FTP server software. Which one works for you, depends on what your needs are. Just try out some of the programs locally until you find what you like. After that you just set up your firewall and the router so that people can access FTP from the internet.

If it is the router (which I doubt) how can i fix this? If it isnt, any ideas what it might be?

A:Can going through a router block internet sites?

If your router has a built in firewall then you could try disabling it. Also, make sure you have the latest firmware for your router. Check you haven't got some kind of virus/spyware that prevents you from accessing certain websites (though i dont think it's likely). Finally, check your browser compatibility.

Dear all:
I work as an IT specialist in a very "old fashion" company. Currently 80% above of our systems are something like Win XP Home. I guess you all can imagine how hard it is to maintain the systems before I convince the company to spend extra few thousand dollars to upgrade to Windows XP Professional.

Under such circumstance, it is best in my opinion to outsource critical operations for now, and email service is one of them!

You don't have to disable your firewall, you just have to make a tiny hole in it for web and possibly a little bit bigger one for FTP traffic.

For web, you open TCP port 80 for incoming traffic and install a webserver. I strongly advise against anything MS.

For FTP, you have to open at least incoming TCP port 21 and install a FTP server. Plenty of free ones out there. This is assuming your firewall allows all outgoing connections.

If you don't make any big blunders during setup you should be quite safe unless you expect some determined attacks by possible enemies or competitors.

I'm a little confused by this. Isn't the whole point of using a sandboxed browser is that nothing leaves it. SAS picked this up: [ C:\AVAST! SANDBOX\S-1-5-21-3583729876-1247344376-3946384776-1000\SFZONE\C\USERS\NIGHTMARE\APPDATA\ROAMING\MACROMEDIA\FLASH PLAYER\#SHAREDOBJECTS\JG77RLU5 ]
I assumed that with a sandbox, stuff like this (especially a key bank flash cookie) would simply not exist.
Also, there is no C:\Avast!. I installed Avast to a custom folder and Avast doesn't use the word "Sandbox" to describe it's program in any files, always "SafeZone".

Don't get me wrong, pc's fine. I'm just wondering if this is typical or if Avast just makes a crappy sandbox.

A:Sandbox bank account tracking cookie?

Try using Google Chrome or FireFox with Disconnect + Adblock. That should eliminate the majority, if not all tracking stuff.

Hi everyone!

I'm currently writing my bachelor thesis in information systems. I'll be researching illegal trade on the dark web, the case study being the Silk Road online drug market on the TOR-network.

Because of the nature of the site, it often goes up and down. I would therefore like to make an offline version of the site, stored on my local hard drive for backup.

I've used software like ScrapBook and HTTRack, but they just won't take .onion-sites!
(I'm using the TOR Bundle for browsing the TOR network and my OS is Windows 7.)

Please help!

A:How to make an offline version of .onion-sites?

Hmm; IMO, you just don't need to replicate a site to do this research and this approach would be unethical.

If you need a few webpages, access them via the browser and perform a SAVE PAGE AS and use TEXT Files option to avoid all the scripts and graphics.

You might get a programmer to do some work with PHP using the cURL feature and that's opening the barn door for you.

When I bought my new laptop with Windows 8 preferred me to create a Microsoft Account and use it to sign each to access Windows. After doing some reading I understand it syncs things like personal settings such as wall paper, font etc. What else does it sync? For example it seems to automatically connect other Microsoft products to the Microsoft Account used to log in to Windows, for example it automatically signed in Onenote which now stores notes in the cloud.

Does signing through a Microsoft Account backup programs and data of other programs? For example if I installed Adobe Photoshop and created a image using it and had my laptop stolen, would it have automatically be saved to the cloud?

A:Temporarily turn off email account in Yahoo mail

Yahoo email filters are poor; they only support the model:
block email-id is [email protected]​and spammers continue to reach you by changing the user portion. Better email client software supports that as well as:
block email-id contains @domain​and regardless of the email user, that domain gets blocked

fyi: Thunderbird is my favorite email software

So my friend created an MSN / Windows Live account so she could talk to some friends.
Apparently every time she tries to add a contact, and then send them a message, it doesn't work.

I had her test this by adding my username, and it didn't pop up with the normal "accept and add?" dialogue box.
I messed with this a bit further and got no where.

I decided to test this in a controlled environment. I created a new Windows Live account.
I then signed on to the account with meebo (a browser-based IM client) and tried to send myself a message.
It didn't work.

I'm lost at this point. I don't know what the problem could be at all. Any insight would be appreciated.

Had a virus, got all cleaned up thanks to Broni, in the Virus Forums....

Still having Excel issues...if I try to open an Excel file without Excel already loaded.
Excel opens but requests User account Control Authorization before it will carry on.
Then says: "There was a problem sending the command to the program"...(the location of the file is displayed on the outside frame of this error)...then Excel loads on top of it with no file open.

I did move some files around to tidy things up prior to getting rid of the virus...but...

There are some files that Excel will open once it is loaded....those are displayed in Excel's recent files list....

Not sure if I should try uninstalling and reinstalling, repair fix maybe...??

Suggestions most appreciated.


A:Excel asking for User Account Control authorization

The fastest solution will likely be to uninstall Excel (or the entire Office suite) and then perform a new installation of it. That won't affect any existing documents you've been using but will give you a fresh install of your Office software now Broni has finished with ridding your computer of nasties.

Whilst logged in as admin is there any way i can access the users email and export to a .pst so i can then re-import it onto a working laptop? If i log in to the user in safe mode, then try opening outlook it comes up with an error, asking me to restart the program or reinstall.
