    So, how about .NET Core anyone?

    Yeah was looking for Hosting Panel support as well, Cpanel seems kinda meh on it (Plugin is available), otherwise not seeing much.
  2. Going back to my favorite programming language, C#, was building a few gadgets I plan on hosting via VPS here using .NET Core. Anyone out there, not necessarily Hawkhost, ran .NET Core on VPS Servers here? Experiences on the best distribution, hosting panel, etc? Thoughts?

    Is anyone using Squirrel Mail? (it may be going away)

    I've always used Squirrelmail as well, IMO it was the simplest one. No worries if that's how it is then, off to RoundCube I go then.

    How is Cloud Hosting different from a VPS?

    Out of curiousity has Hawkhost yet done any benchmarking and seen how Cloud Websites stack up compared to VPS Websites on their end performance/load time wise? Say drop a empty Wordpress Website on each and ran anyone's favorite benchmarking software on both platforms? Curious if so and what the results are.
  5. 1) I have some old domains that are long expired (short term projects that no longer are maintained) still visible in my Client area, is there an easy way to get rid of those inactive domains from my client area? 2) Is there a way to consolidate invoices around Domain renewals and hosting? Try and move everything to around the same expiration date maybe? So I send you guys one payment a year basically? Thanks, and keep being as awesome as you always are!

    D00d, what time is it?

    Awesome, once again Ryan, kudos to you and your team :-) Looking forward, are all servers typically time synced back to a NTP server somewhere? Is 2 factor ok to use for authentication when it's time synced (for example with WHM)? Thanks!
  7. So was trying to setup 2 factor authentication on my VPS, however wasn't having much luck. On looking into it I noticed the time is off on my VPS, which is a big no-no of course in 2 factor authentication. Or right now it's 2:39UTC on my VPS, but time.gov has me at 2:45UTC. Pretty significant for 2 factor. I tried correcting this with NTPD but it wasn't working for some reason. Tried opening firewall ports, no go. Does VPS Time sync only with the host or can I independently configure time? If you need to do it, could I ask you for a time check on dalvz109 please :-) either that or is it typically wise to setup WHM 2 factor authentication on a Virtual server to begin with? Thanks!

    Updating SPF Records Can it Be Done Automatically?

    Actually after still some more tinkering, this works like a charm: v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:<<primary IP Address>> +include:_spf.arandomserver.com -all Also note the -all, so there are no soft fails. If you're not _spf.arandomserver.com you can reject.

    Updating SPF Records Can it Be Done Automatically?

    Going to try this then: v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:<<primary server IP Address>> +a:_spf.arandomserver.com +mx:_spf.arandomserver.com +ip4:<<current server IP Address>> +ip4:<<Prior server IP Address>> ~all (deliberately snipped IP Addresses) Thing that's durable enough?
  10. Noticed today my IP Address for my outgoing mail changed. No big deal typically, but it knocked my SPF Record out of whack and was hurting my outgoing email's spam score with a soft fail on SPF. Is there an easy way to automate this to "Anything Hawkhost changed my IP to for outgoing mail, I promise it's not Spam. If it's anything else but that server drop that crappy email like a hot potato."
  11. So the non-profit organization I work for is getting tired of the canned wordpress themes out there and is willing to shake loose a few bucks for a custom one. I'm just curious if anyone in this forum has some free time on their hands and is willing to do something for cheap that's one of a kind. Any takers?
  12. You can find the hardware specs on VPS Here: https://www.hawkhost.com/vps-hosting Beyond that, it's pretty much what tgonhawk said. VPS is pretty much a "Do It Yourself" option for hosting. Hawkhost gives you a (Virtual) server, an operating system and some optional bits of software (Paid typically) and you're off from there. It's a very skeletal configuration to start and you'll need to shape in your own image. ...and I wouldn't have this any other way. In the VPS hosting world I'd prefer to call all the shots on performance, security and stability myself.
  13. Long story short, I wanted to fetch some PDF's and tear them apart for information. Anyone tried this yet on PHP or Java? IText was one gadget I found that looked fairly promising. But wondering what else people have come up with. Thanks!

    Adding Wordpress??

    Expanding on Brian a smidge, you may want to think about getting a reseller account in a situation like this, then moving your client in (I'm sure Hawkhost will let them move in under you), this way you have a "Alpha" account that lets you log into all your clients and install anything you want, such as Wordpress, that way one set of users and passwords you keep alone can do all you want. Clients still get their own users and passwords that keep them in their own realm. Disclaimer: I'm only a customer of hawkhost, but been in the industry a crap ton. P.S. now that I've done your suggestive up selling for you Brian, where do I send my invoice :-p
  15. Setup is always a bear, if you think Reseller setups are crazy, try a VPS. Six months into managing the one here I'm responsible for and I still wonder if I've got everything setup 100% the way it should be (but hey everything works so now it's just optimizing...) But yeah Hawkhost support is right on the ball :-)
