    > Setup a page for monitoring To minimize any performance hit, you can have a special page anywhere in your site which is of minimal size. 0 size might cause some problems, but anything else should work ok. Or, if you already have a very small page (or even a small image), you could use that. An advantage of that is that if you are doing any sort of accesslog viewing or analysis you can ignore fetches of the monitoring page so you are only looking at "real" traffic.

    That's exactly the format you'd want to use so you're good and shouldn't run into any issues with SPF record problems going forward.

    Thanks for your suggestion! We've often considered opening a location in India and we've had discussions on this as recently as the past few months, so it's definitely something we've looked into! At the moment I'm afraid we don't have any immediate plans to open up a location in India however it would absolutely be on our short list for our next expansion

    Amsterdam server + Form Tools

    Our Amsterdam location was unavailable for a short period of time but right now we have plenty of capacity and can easily now add capacity as necessary. You should see an option to order hosting in that location. For the actual migration it's typically best you disable features that there is user input as information will get out of sync. What users typically do is order hosting and then disable their forums, forms etc. and ask for our team to migrate the site. Once our team has migrated the site the user enables the features again on our systems. Then any new data is only added to our systems. Along with that if your host uses cPanel we can migrate accounts in just a few hours typically (unless the host is slow or blocks backups). So you don't even need to worry about domain changes if you don't want to. Your sites sound fine in a shared environment so you shouldn't need to worry about that aspect. They'll be very fast on our servers, I have no doubt about that.

    We switched from utilizing randomized ports for users to using a unix socket on user accounts. Any application that supports Memcached should allow for unix sockets the same way it can use ports. You'd use the address: unix://(socket location we give you) We'll have someone from our team update the image to reflect the unix socket change. We missed that while updating the blog post to mention it's handled using sockets.

    XenForo memcached setup how to use it?

    Looks like a similar solution to phpbb where they refer to the php memcached extension as Libmemcached. As for checking if it's working you'd be best to open a ticket. Although for most applications if it's not working they typically end up hanging or throwing an error.

    XenForo memcached setup how to use it?

    I haven't tested this but I'd imagine this post here is still valid. Usually you can point to a socket using the unix:// method as noted above. Please let me know if this works!

    DNS Server question

    Our DNS servers are remote so if the web server goes down then DNS would be served. We also utilize anycast for our DNS infrastructure and have DNS servers in numerous diverse locations. We do this for performance and redundancy purposes.

    phpBB3 with Memcached

    The reason we do not offer a traditional IP/port is because anyone on the same server as you could read your memcached data. This would be a security risk which is why it's a socket that exists only inside your own accounts Cage meaning only you can access it. I want to clarify one thing the recommended extension is memcached and not the memcache extension. The memcached extension is actively developed: https://pecl.php.net/package/memcached The memcache extension is not: https://pecl.php.net/package/memcache The last release is almost four years ago. Looking at their code directly I believe we can make this work with sockets. What you can do is use the following: unix:///path/to/memcached.sock The reason I'm coming to this conclusion is $this->memcached->addServer(trim($parts[0]), trim($parts[1])); They are calling the PHP extension and the documentation for addServer is here: http://php.net/manual/en/memcache.addserver.php and it accepts sockets on the host and you set the port to 0. That should make everything work when you utilize the Memcache extension in PHP 5.6. Unfortunately looking through the phpbb forums there is no support for the memcached extension meaning you cannot utilize PHP 7.

    Very Quick Subdomain Question

    You don't need to bother throwing up an index but it really doesn't hurt uploading an empty index.html file so it's not a directory listing when you visit the site.

    Very Quick Subdomain Question

    The short answer is the new subdomain will be seen on the web and it'll work fine. The long explanation is: The idea of a public_html folder is really an old way of thinking. The web server is capable of showing a site regardless of the folder it is in. As a result of this cPanel now automatically places any new subdomains/addon domains below your public_html folder. It allows for easier organization and makes so you don't have a case of the content of one subdomain/domain loading from the primary domain of the account also. You can also be even more flexible and do things like: blogs/domain.com blogs/domain2.com forums/domain.com forums/domain2.com

    Resources Inquiry

    Hi there! Our resource limits for the semi-dedicated plans look to be higher than the 'Deluxe' plan based on that chart you linked to. Our semi-dedicated plans offer: 2 CPUs 2GB Memory/RAM 10Mb/s I/O 50 Concurrent MySQL connections 20 entry processes If your site is running without issues on their Deluxe plan I see no reason it wouldn't be fine on our semi-dedicated plans

    Server Outages

    Hello, I believe we resolved the issue with that specific system and are investigating why our internal monitoring systems did not pick up the problem on it's own. Sorry about any inconvenience this may have caused.

    Reseller packages in Amsterdam NL servers

    It's something we've considered however the demand is pretty low at this time. If enough people express interest in reseller services in Amsterdam we'll definitely start offering it.

    Shared Hosting details

    Hi there! The only difference between those plans is the disk space quota, all other features and resources are the same

    My 2 cents' worth is this: The Knowledge Base here is very thinly populated, it's one area where Hawkhost is lacking. However ... if you Google search your question or topic, since this is a pretty standard Cpanel setup, you can usually find your answer. Often it will be in the knowledge base articles of some other host, many of which have better documentation, allowing for some slight stylistic differences among hosts (and some substantive ones, too). But usually the answers can be found. But having said that, the hosting itself - and the support - here is top notch and, as Brian said, once you've climbed the learning curve, you're in good hands with Hawkhost.

    Outside of our own KB and what you can find on Google there is the official cPanel/WHM documentation: Guide to Reseller Accounts How to create a cPanel account from WHM Creating a hosting account package (disk space, bandwidth, etc) Editing an accounts DNS Zone As a reseller those will be the most frequent tasks you're likely to perform. Once you become comfortable with creating cPanel accounts from WHM the rest of the options became more familiar and easier to use. Past the initial learning curve you'll find most tasks become second nature as you use the WHM interface. As you're also aware our support team is available 24/7/365 so if you have any other questions that can't be answered by documentation you can always ask us directly for help and guidance.

    WordPress Users, Secure yourselves!

    I realize this is a really old topic, but I just wanted to say thanks for the info. I have a few WP sites that I will eventually be moving to my HH hosting. I'm very impressed with the company and support so far.
