comment How can I configure my server to make it into a Virtualization Host?
I sense some confusion between the terms "virtual host" (a common web server software term) and "virtual machine" (a full guest OS running on emulated virtual hardware). Which one do you actually want? In the first case, include the name of the web server software you use (e.g. Apache httpd, Lighttpd etc.). In the latter case, include the name of the virtualization technology you want to use (or rephrase question to ask which VT is best suited).

By the way, I know we aren't supposed to post "thank you" comments on here, but you just increased my reputation sixfold :)

I would consider a packet loss of that magnitude quite reasonable when traversing the internet, especially if there are congested hops on the route. Remember, DNS uses UDP, which doesn't guarantee datagram delivery. Which is exactly why the DNS protocol itself has retries and a timeout mechanism built in.

Does this problem also occur with a DNS server in the same subnet as the client?

comment What would you do if you realized your email hosting provider could see your passwords?
I mean, okay, a maximum length requirement somewhere lower than a few hundred characters. I don't expect my webmail provider to willingly hash a megabyte of password every time I log in.

Do they enforce a maximum length requirement? That's almost always a canary for plaintext password storage.
