    The server list section of the forums is no longer maintained and hasn't been for years (we should probably remove it). We used that years and years ago when we were a much smaller company and only had a few servers to manage, however as we've grown it's no longer practical to maintain a forum for each server. We have a status page at http://hawkhoststatus.com/ which we use for any maintenance windows, extended outages, etc.

    Business Email - Google Suit?

    You can associate multiple email addresses with your Gmail account, and choose which one is used for each outgoing message. It will send your messages directly to the recipients (not via Hawkhost). That is all handled within Gmail, and this Google search result (or some variation of it) https://www.google.com/search?q=gmail+multiple+addresses&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 will give you lots of articles describing all the various aspects of using that Gmail feature.

    Business Email - Google Suit?

    Hello! All of our hosting plans do include email so you can setup yourname@yourdomain.com email accounts through your existing hosting plan. We also offer SpamExperts filtering for free on both incoming and outgoing emails so you'll be protected from spam, UCE, malware, etc. from hitting your inbox. Now if you prefer to continue using the Gmail interface it is also possible to associate your email address(es) that's hosted through us to your Gmail account. You can do that by logging into Gmail and then go to "Settings => Forwarding and POP/IMAP". This would be done once you create your email address with us in cPanel as you'll need your server name, password, and other settings. Lastly if you did choose to host your email through GSuite you can modify your domains MX records (assuming we're hosting your DNS) through cPanel using the 'Zone Editor' interface.

    This could be caused by a few things, unfortunately it's hard to say without looking into your account specifically. Please contact our support department (https://my.hawkhost.com/submitticket.php) and provide us with your WP admin login details so we can replicate & fix this. Thanks!

    Unfortunately it is not possible to add the same domain to an account twice. If I'm misunderstanding and you're referring to something else please let me know!

    > 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.

    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.

    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.

    Are VPS Servers Backed up At All?

    We take daily backups just like we do for our shared web hosting. That being said with a lot of times a user needs things restored on their VPS the only option is a complete restore of the entire system back to the point needed. That is why just like our shared web hosting it doesn't hurt to make your own backups as well. It gives you another option if you ever have to restore something.
