HOW TO LINK A DOMAIN TO YOUR SITE

In order for the acquired domain to work, it must be properly linked to the hosting on which your site is located. Consider how to do it correctly.

To begin with, the domain binding process is rather slow and can take up to 70 hours. What to do if you can not wait? If you need to quickly begin to move and customize your own website? Or if you need to first try to set up the site optimally and after binding the domain. This is where the special hosts file comes to the rescue. If we speak in a simple language, the binding of the domain to the IP address is compulsorily prescribed in the .hosts file, and when the actual domain is registered, it no longer matters what its server is. For a particular computer, it will almost always lead to the specified ip address specified in a special file – .hosts.

BINDING DOMAIN TO HOSTING – USING SPECIAL SETTINGS FOR DNS SERVERS

Popular DNS servers are information channels that are responsible for the high-quality and reliable connection between the domain name and the host. If special DNS servers are not competently configured, then when directly typing a domain name with any prefix in the address bar of any web browser, the Internet site with this domain will not load, because the domain is not actually tied to hosting. Binding your domain to the server is an important and responsible process, but affordable. Let’s look at a couple of options for this binding.

HOW TO BIND A DOMAIN TO A HOSTING

After purchasing the hosting, they send you a special letter with various passwords and ftp-access, logins, addresses to enter the control panel, etc. Also in this letter there is a Secondary Name Server and Primary Name Server for the purchased hosting. These NS settings should be specified during domain registration.

After you need to add a domain in the hosting control panel and specify – NS. After this procedure, during the day, the DNS will change and, having entered a new domain, you will be taken to the hosting folder where all data on the site is stored.

If you do not have a special interface for hosting management, or you do not know where to add what and where, write a letter to the hosting support indicating this problem.

Currently, a huge number of registrars provide non-core hosting services, and providers, in addition to hosting services, provide the ability to register a new domain and information on how to link a domain to a hosting service. One of the main advantages of these services is the linking in the automatic mode of hosting to the domain. For example: when acquiring a hosting service, you register a completely new domain name in the same place and during registration manually indicate where the domain will be (parked) on this hosting. As a result of these actions, you do not have to configure the DNS yourself.

HOW TO BIND A DOMAIN TO A SITE IF THE HOSTING AND DOMAIN IN DIFFERENT PLACES?

If you purchased and registered a domain name from one registrar, and hosting services from a hoster, you need to perform several steps in order to link the hosting to a domain:

  1. In your account, you need to go to the section – domain parking or setting and register the domain name (purchased) in the indicated column. As a rule, when entering it, the prefixes (www and http: //) are not applied.
  2. After passing through the corresponding registration of the hosting, you should have been sent a letter to the indicated address with the indication of the DNS servers, they look like this – alpha.1-hoster.ru, if they didn’t appear in the letter, then you can contact their technical support provider.

WHAT CAN BLOCK THE SITE IN ANY COUNTRY ?

The choice of hosting, first of all, will depend on the content that you plan to host. Depending on the legislation of a particular country, your site may be banned. However, almost always you can find hosting in the country in which the placement of your content is allowed by law.

Do not forget that you will be responsible for the placement of materials. For example, in Russia it is forbidden to host sites containing pornographic themes on hosting. The same laws apply to the territory of Ukraine.

For such subjects suitable German or Dutch hosting. You place content on the sites of these countries – and you will not have problems with the legislation.

At the same time, in Ukraine, as in a number of other countries, torrent sites are banned. Pay attention to this when choosing a hosting for a torrent tracker.

In Russia, recently, in general, strictly follow the materials posted on the Internet. A special “Unified Register of Banned Sites” has been created, an article has been included in the federal law “On Information, Information Technologies and Information Protection”, which provides for a procedure for pre-trial site closure.

THIS CAN HAPPEN IN SOME CASES:

  1. When posted on the website of child pornography.
  2. In the case of announcements about the involvement of minors in pornographic filming, etc.
  3. The site will be closed if it appears instructions or information on how to make drugs and other psychotropic substances, how to commit suicide.
  4. It is forbidden to post information about persons under the age of 18 who are victims of crime.
  5. It is not allowed to disclose information, the prohibition on the distribution of which imposed by the court.

In addition, many Russian hosting companies do not allow placing sites that are advertised with spam, post file archives, information about investment and financial pyramids (like MMM), distribute pirated software, crack to programs, serial key numbers, or simply violate copyright creators and performers of songs and films. Hosting is not very loyal to the placement of religious sites.

Blocking a site is not the worst thing that can happen to a resource owner.

QUESTIONABLE CONTENT?

Canadian hosting is suitable for hosting the most controversial content.

First, Canada has not joined the DCMA – The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which takes into account all the latest advances in copying and disseminating information. Instead, the northern neighbor of the United States has its own, softer legislation on this issue.

Secondly, the closure of the resource requires a decision of the Canadian Court, which is not so easy to achieve. In any case, the Russian authorities are usually not up to this.

Adult content, torrent trackers, online cinemas can be placed on Canadian hosting. Illegal will be considered only sites that spread spam, showing hacker activity in all its manifestations, using fraudulent schemes with payment cards and their details.

In any case, choosing a hosting, first of all, decide on the theme of the site. Once again, carefully study the legislation, and then the problems with the distribution of content you will not have.

WHERE DO VIRUSES COME FROM ON THE SITE ?

Imagine that you are a happy owner of your own website, which is developing and gaining popularity every day. Suddenly, all of a sudden, at the next entrance, the antivirus program began to swear that the site was blocked by Vikrus! Or did the users of the site tell you about the presence of viruses by contacting Feedback? Or did interactive scripts stop working on the site? What does this mean?

All this suggests that the resource is infected with viruses, i.e. alien malicious code. How did he get there, who is to blame, and how to remove it, as well as what needs to be done to avoid such problems in the future? All these questions arise from many more inexperienced owners, and even from experienced ones. We will try to answer them.

WHAT IS A VIRUS LIKE?

Malicious code is encrypted JavaScript-code that is inserted into the code page of the site. When it is executed, an iframe is formed (the ability to include and display images or the contents of one page in another). It is when an inserted iframe is detected that the alarm must be sounded immediately. Such attacks can be carried out on both private and corporate sites. In no case can postpone the treatment of an infected site until later. First of all, the reputation of the site itself suffers. He will lose regular users who were so hard to get involved.

The virus on the site is a big nuisance.

SITE INFECTION MECHANISM

In the overwhelming majority of cases, the site is blocked by a virus that gets to it through the computers from which FTP access was made to it. First, the virus hits exactly on the device itself. There he discovers and copies passwords for access and steals them. Passwords are sent to the computers of hackers, where programs are installed – robots that trust all the “dirty” work. Robot programs perform FTP access using the received passwords, detect root files, download them, add their own malicious code to the end of the code and upload them back, replacing the originals with them.

At the same time, the server cannot determine that at that moment they entered the site from another computer, since the whole procedure looks like a regular login to the user’s site via FTP. The server will think that this owner has come to check how things are going there.

VIRUS REMOVAL

The first step is to prevent re-infection and protect the site from viruses. To do this, you need to urgently change access passwords, check all computers that are running FTP access for viruses. Antiviruses should be powerful with updated databases.

In order to remove the malicious code and protect the site from viruses, simply open the infected file, find the desired site, delete it and save the clean file. In some cases, the file may contain several codes at once. And sometimes the files are damaged so much that it is much easier to delete them and restore everything using backup copies of the files. This will significantly save time than if you will waste time and heal the resource manually.

PREVENTING INFECTIONS IN THE FUTURE

Stepping on a rake once, do not do this in the future. To prevent a situation when the site is blocked by a virus, you must observe the following security rules:

  • It is better not to use the ability to save passwords in FTP clients. Access passwords should be changed regularly.
  • Write them on a piece of paper or copy it onto removable media and hide it in a safe place, but do not let them be in the hands of others even from your personal environment.
  • It is better to minimize the number of devices from which the FTP-access.
  • For FTP access, you should use reliable and modern computers with good antivirus programs. The programs themselves must be licensed, with all the included verification options, with updated databases. Choose an expensive but reliable product with a reputation and positive reviews.

HOW TO CALCULATE THE AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC FOR YOUR SITE?

There are very favorable hosting rates for site hosting. But sometimes they are intimidated by traffic restrictions. We will understand how to determine whether the site will fit into the established framework.

BANDWIDTH CALCULATION

A simple calculation can tell a lot of interesting things: 
Required traffic = average number of page views x average page weight x average number of visitors per day x number of days per month x reserve. 
The average number of visitors per day is the total number of visitors per month, you need to divide by 30.

  • The average page weight is the average size of a single page file.
  • The average number of page views is the average number of page views per visitor.
  • Reserve is a safety factor that varies between 1.3-1.8.

We arrange the numbers, and get a rough estimate of the bandwidth that is required for your site.

CALCULATION OF THE BANDWIDTH OF THE SITE FROM WHICH YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A FILE

The calculation is carried out in a similar way, only need to identify additional channels for download. Site bandwidth and downloads are easily calculated using the formula: 
Required traffic = [(Average number of page views x average page weight x average number of visitors per day) + (average number of downloads per day x average file size)] x number of days per month x reserve . 
The average number of visitors per day is the total number of visitors per month should be divided by 30

  • The average page weight is the average size of a single page file.
  • The average number of page views is the average number of page views per visitor.
  • The average file size is the total size of the site files divided by the number.
  • Reserve is a safety factor that varies between 1.3 – 1.8.

EXCESS BANDWIDTH

Now you understand that there is a certain margin of safety, ranging from 30% to 80%, which is used in the calculation of throughput. The reason for this is that the bandwidth reserve is crucial, if necessary to withstand sudden spikes in traffic.

That is, the higher the backup rate, the more stable the server. So, it can cope with an unexpected jump in traffic that can erase all the differences between a successful and unsuccessful advertising campaign site.

For example, your article was on the first page of Google for the search query “iphone” – and the server does not cope with a sharp increase in traffic. That is how a good advertising campaign suddenly ended very badly.

The amount of traffic for the site is quite simple to calculate

HOW TO DETERMINE IF A SITE NEEDS MORE BANDWIDTH?

As a rule, if the site is constantly busy and slow, this is the first sign that a higher bandwidth is required.

The probability that the provider simply does not have enough bandwidth reserve capacity is also not excluded. To solve this problem, it is necessary to increase the bandwidth, or switch to a dedicated server, since there is no need to share the bandwidth of the site with other hosting clients.

In addition, you can use file hosting services, which not only allows you to save an impressive margin of site bandwidth, but also make a profit for downloading your files.

CONCLUSION

When choosing a suitable hosting plan, you should, in addition to the amount of bandwidth, pay particular attention to some details.

The frequency of the processor, the number of databases, RAM – this is just a partial list. In fact, without quality resources on these parameters – unlimited bandwidth loses its meaning.

WHAT IS FILE HOSTING?

The reputation of any site directly depends on availability at any time interval without the slightest expectation from all visitors. Optimally choose a paid file hosting and not fall into the trap provider, then optimally ensure the operation of the Internet site or portal.

Companies that provide the best hosting solutions on the market in enough and you can say in abundance. But for a client who has a need to post his own project on the Internet, the choice can be very difficult. It would seem that it can be easier and simpler than choosing one of the similar ones? It turns out not so simple as it seems. Practically always the same range of services provided provides an opportunity for unscrupulous organizations to work in this market segment. How to distinguish a coupler from a professional? And how not to get into the tricky tariff traps?

The main criterion of reliability and quality – professional paid or free file hosting always offers clients a set of their own developments with a platform combined with the most advanced hosting provider technologies, which include a huge selection of high-speed solutions, high-quality and reliable hardware base (own), unique solutions for achieve a high level of security, flexible options for individual settings. These services will satisfy anyone, the requirements of very demanding users.

File hosting is a special service that provides the client with a place for his files and quick access to them through a special web interface, usually via the http protocol. This service allows you to conveniently distribute or download files. On a special Internet file sharing page (most often on the main one), the user uploads the necessary file to the file sharing server, after the file sharing service gives the user a generated permalink, which he can easily send via e-mail, stir on forums, blogs or send through special systems Im. By clicking on this link, almost any user can download a published file. Some services have useful affiliate programs.

FILE SHARING ALLOWS YOU TO EARN IN TWO WAYS

  • Display contextual advertising. Usually, all file servers introduce an artificial pause with advertising when users request the necessary file. Within 40-120 seconds. The user is shown forced advertising, and only then appears to download the file.
  • Sale of VIP (VIP) or premium (premium) – accounts. For a couple of tens of dollars a year, the user has the opportunity to purchase the right to download files, without advertising and without delays, with increased or full speed as many file sharing services specifically limit the download speed. Owners of a paid account also receive other benefits not available to free users, such as downloading and downloading files from multiple streams.

FREE FILE HOSTING – EARNINGS

The working scheme is about the same: the user, after registering, uploads to the server his own files that have unique URLs. Basically, the user in order to achieve maximum earnings tries to place a direct link to his file on more Internet sites. As a rule, these are special sites, as well as ICQ-mailing, spam and forums. For every hundred downloads of a unique file, paid file hosting pays the user money from two dollars, and, the larger the file, the greater the payment.
