GoDaddy [...] I assume their servers are geographically distributed Don't assume, verify with GoDaddy or verify it yourself. A quick traceroute to nsX.secureserver.com (a common DNS server name for GoDaddy) gives me a response from a datacenter here in Scandinavia where I live. So yes, it seems that GoDaddy has its nameservers spread out over at least ...

Go Daddy Managed servers cannot be made HIPAA complaint. HIPAA requires a DC inspection which will not be possible with our data centers.

If you'd have posted the domain name (so we can do a WHOIS lookup on it) it would have been more helpful. That being said, there are typically 3-4 contacts for a domain. Registrant, Technical, Billing, and Administrator. As long as you're listed in at least ONE of these three you have a good chance of getting your domain. The process varies from ...

I ran into the same problem with a site that I had hosted on a HostNine shared hosting package. They too give you ssh access, but they unfortunately don't have git installed and don't even give you access to run gcc, making it rather difficult to download and install git for your user. The only way I could think of to work around these restrictions was to ...

The bindings in IIS should use the internal IP. You will either have Port Forwarding Rules or Load Balancing Rules that take the external IP and translate it to the internal IP. Once translated the virtual machines will use the internal IP for everything, including bindings in IIS. When the request leaves the server the request will be translated back to the ...

Don't assume anything about GoDaddy. I've found them to be awful on many occasions. I personally have a separate DNS host to my domain registrar, because the DNS host provides a better service (more adjustable records, rather than just A and CNAME). From what I've seen, Route53 is supposed to be quite inexpensive, at least in line with Dynect's offering ...

You can eliminate this single point of failure by using two DNS providers. It might also be feasible to run your own DNS server on one of your servers. GoDaddy allows you to do zone transfers from their servers (IIRC premium DNS is required for this). Get a second DNS provider which allows you to run a slave server (or run it yourself). Adjust NS/Nserver ...

Which DNS providers allow me to do this? All competent ones. It doesn't even need to be a DNS-specific providing, most good hosts will help you with this too. There are two stages: A DNS entry is added for *.example.com The host's web server (e.g. Apache) is setup to respond to *.example.com by routing it to example.com's VirtualHost. Then, at your ...

You usually want to receive mail for address@mydomain.com, not for address@mail.mydomain.com, so an MX entry for mydomain.com will be sufficient, which usually should point to mail.mydomain.com to enable your mail server as an MX.

Verify that the correct intermediate certificates are being given out by the server at http://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html As martona suggested, you may need to use a different bundle.

Keep in mind FTP sends your password in CLEAR TEXT. So the potential for compromise is definitely there. Another thing to consider, is your FTP password UNIQUE to your hosting? Are you sure you're not using it ANYWHERE else? No other accounts, websites, etc? How secure is your EMAIL password? I've been involved in cases where the "weak link" was ...

You can create a CNAME record that points to the EC2 Public DNS In the GoDaddy DNS manager: Set record type to: CNAME Domain name to: whatever.domain.com Canonical name to: ec2-your-ec2.compute-1.amazonaws.com Then you can access ec2-your-ec2.compute-1.amazonaws.com using whatever.domain.com This will same you from having to pay the $.01 per hour for ...

To add a PTR record in the GoDaddy DNS Manager, you need to do the following: In the Zone Field Editor go down to the TXT(text) Zone Click Add SPF Record A window will open with 4 tabs (Inbound, Outbound, The well hidden 'PTR' and Outsourced) Go to the PTR tab Check Include PTR and add your public IP

Linode has DNS servers and a well-documented DNS Manager application that you can use to create your own DNS zone and records.

Log into the godaddy.com portal and edit the domain you want to change the DNS settings for (You are looking for the domain Manager). In the host summary (bottom left) is where you need to add the entries to ns1 and ns2 along with their IP addresses. It'll then take a little bit for everything to replicate so that you can point other domains to those ...

Something twinged as familiar while reading through your post. Then it hit me: I had seen this before, over a month ago, when trying to access a site for a game. See here - same behavior, the redirect action taken just on search engine referrers. The domain name in your .htaccess looked familiar because my home computer's antivirus had made loud noises ...

Easy! Don't use FTP. It transmits the credentials in plain-text and transmits all data in plain-text. It's one of the most insecure ways to transfer files. If your host doesn't support any other ways, find a new host.

One NIC supports more than one IP. To add them simplyClick on Start button Open Control Panel Click on Network and Sharing Center Click on Manage Network Connections Right Click on the active network icon and select Properties Select Internet Protocol Version (TCP/IP). There may be more then version. (Use 4 unless you are using IPv6) Now click on ...

To make things nice and clear, as some of the GoDaddy help articles are dead wrong: You just need to paste the two records from the server settings into your Route 53 control panel as a new record. The possible deception here is the the GD email panel will tell you you're wrong, but not what is right so you can make it right. Further, their help ...

Two things you can do: Verify the intermediate chain Clean up the intermediate chain Verify the intermediate chain As the error seems to indicate, there is something off about your intermediate certificate chain. You should check where you got your certificate from and that you got the correct intermediate bundle. You should verify the "hash" and ...

It allows you to ssh into your hosted server and make changes on the command line, instead of through a web interface like cPanel. Typically if you are on a windows machine you would use putty to connect to the ssh server. Then you can use regular linux command-line tools to edit files and such.

If you require the registrar (godaddy) to forward your domain, godaddy will redirect the web access from a domain to your IP. Client ===> Godaddy ===> You Godaddy acts as an intermediate between the client and you. If you want to bypass godaddy, the client has to initially resolve your domain as your IP. So the change must occur at the DNS level. ...

You need just to set the default policy to DROP on the INPUT and OUTPUT chains. To allow SSH in, you need the following commands: $ sudo iptables -P INPUT DROP $ sudo iptables -P OUTPUT DROP $ sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT $ sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 22 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT You can ...

As of May 2011 there is now an SLA for Route53, 100% availability backed by service credits if they fail: AWS will use commercially reasonable efforts to make Amazon Route 53 100% Available (defined below). In the event Amazon Route 53 does not meet the foregoing commitment, you will be eligible to receive a Service Credit as described below. ...

The key to surviving a massive influx in traffic is to increase the amount of concurrent requests you can handle, that means a)decrease the time it takes to render pages so you can serve more visitors quickly, or b)get a hosting platform that is capable of handling more connections. If you expect lots of media traffic, shared hosting is not for you. At ...

I really like ZoneEdit for my DNS record management. It was really easy to setup, and I was able to write a tiny script that runs and refreshes every day in case my IP Address changes. EDIT: One caveat is that you can only manage the first five DNS records free, but it should be good enough to get you going.

Depending on which type of certificate you have, go to https://certs.godaddy.com/Repository.go and download the appropriate intermediate certificate chain (one of the .crt files, most likely this one). Paste that into your PEM file along with your own certificate and key.

In short, you can't make the @ record a CNAME without deleting all other resource records for @, and you can't do that since some (like the NS records) are required for proper DNS functionality. This is one reason why providers such as Heroku tell you not to use naked domain names. You will need a host to perform the HTTP redirection from example.com to ...
