comment Managing reserved Amazon EC2 instances
@AmolGhotankar I don't exactly understand but billing will automatically take into account reserved instances if they apply. If they don't then best to contact AWS support. AWS just recently added the ability change reservation availability zones which you should check into if your reserved instance is not in the same AZ as the instance, otherwise it might be the instance size and reservation do not match.

comment DNS SERVFAIL and Incorrect Flag only via TCP: Broken DNS Servers?
@BestPractices Sorry the late reply and no unfortunately no resolution. We decided to instead run our own load balancer that doesn't need a CNAME or apex redirect since we couldn't move the DNS to Route 53.

comment What are the differences between “less” and “more”?
In CentOS I've noticed rendering differences like in "less" all of the escaped characters show up but in "more" it appears that it ignores them. That's about the only time I'll use "more".

comment Apache Rewrite or Redirect?
Do you want an internal redirect (browser URL remains /) or do you want a browser redirect (browser URL becomes /url) ?

comment How does my browser know where to get data from a server?
It actually performs a regular DNS lookup. Reverse would be getting the domain name using the IP.

comment Best practices for keeping a portion of website under https & under http for the rest
@symcbean One example I know of is AWS ELB but with any SSL terminating points it should inject a header like (using PHP) $_SERVER["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO"] set to "https"

@Redmumba That's a good point thanks. FF will give an exclamation mark on the lock and not show the SSL button in the URL bar.
