Web Hosting / How to Resolve The Error cPanel Temporary URL Not Working?
« on: August 08, 2020, 12:48:52 PM »
These scenarios happen when cPanel temporary URL is used:
  • When customers are creating new websites and they want to test it before making them public.
  • Customers who migrate their accounts from another hosting to your server and want to confirm that everything is fine, before switching the DNS to your server.
While accessing the temporary URL in the above cases, at times you might get a 404 error.

Web Hosting / How to Register Private Nameservers for your Domain Name?
« on: August 08, 2020, 12:41:47 PM »
As you know, every website has a unique IP address, and you know it is difficult to remember the IP address and that's why we access a site using its domain name. I am giving the example www.milesweb.com is a domain name, we can easily remember this but we cannot remember by its IP address. In the backend, a nameserver resolves a domain name to IP address after which a website is accessible in your browser.

If you want to create your own nameservers for your domain name, register your own hostnames with the domain you have registered through MilesWeb. With private nameservers, you will be able to use your own identity in nameservers.

You can register your nameservers if you have your own a VPS or a dedicated server (ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com).

The first step is to get IP addresses where you can point your domain nameservers.
The IP addresses will be defined in your welcome email, if not you can contact your hosting provider's support team anytime.
Once you have the IP address, you can register the nameservers with your domain registrar.
If your domain is registered with MilesWeb, follow these mentioned steps:
If your domain name is registered with some other hosting provider, please contact them for nameserver assistance.
Once the nameservers are registered, you will have to set them on your server. Follow these mentioned steps:

1. Login to WHM and >> ‘DNS functions’ section >> Edit DNS zone menu
2. Select the drop-down, the domain name you would like to set the nameservers for and click on ‘Edit’ option
3. Update the ‘SOA record’ stating your primary nameserver and the email address
If you want the custom nameservers to be automatically used for all the new cPanel accounts and you also need to set them for all the addons before adding them to cPanel:

Go to ‘Basic cPanel and WHM setup’ in WHM >> and add your custom nameservers.

You must wait 24-72 hours for the DNS changes to propagate worldwide. Contact MilesWeb support if you need any help.

  • The domain registrant means the end-user, who wants to register their brand name or domain name for a website.
  • Registrars issue domain name licenses to registrants. Registrars can process new registrations and renewals because they have direct access to the domain registry, as well as update registrant contact details in the database.
  • Domain resellers are the businesses that provide domain name registration services to the public but are not accredited registrars. Resellers buy large amounts of domain extensions and manage domain name records for their customers through an interface.

General Discussion / Re: What is Email Auto Responder?
« on: October 24, 2019, 12:27:09 PM »
The phrase "autoresponder" these days generally refers to anything that automatically responds to an email message. Auto' means 'Self' and 'responder' means 'reverting', thus an Autoresponder is a computer program which automatically reverts on the e-mails sent to it.
You can set autoresponder in two ways:
1. Server-side: The user installs the autoresponder script on his server and manages everything on his own.
2. Outsourced ASP - In this model, the user spends a monthly fee to the company which gives them the autoresponder service. It is a bit easier choice, as the former one requires some technical skills.

Domain Names / Re: What is domain privacy?
« on: October 24, 2019, 12:17:50 PM »
Hey,
Can you guys help to let me know, what is domain privacy?

Every domain name has public information attached to it about the owner of the domain name. The name, email address, phone number, and even home address of the owner is openly available online in the WHOIS database.
The rules and laws surrounding domain names require every domain name owner to reveal their contact information. But in most cases, some people wouldn't want their personal contact information available to the public.
Because scammers, hackers, and anyone else can see it. For this domain owner needs to take Domain Privacy service. Domain Privacy is a service allows you to hide your personal contact information from the public WHOIS database and replace it with generic contact information instead.

Web Hosting / Re: What is SSL certificate?
« on: August 31, 2019, 06:34:59 PM »
While looking out for hosting features, I found out that SSL certificate is a necessary one.
Can you guide me on what does SSL certificate mean? Is it necessary to have one? As there are many hosting providers and they ask for an additional cost for SSL certificate so is it worth to buy?

SSL Certificate is the small data file that digitally joins a cryptographic key to a companies details. When it installed on a web server, it activates the padlock and the https protocol and provides secure connections from a web server to a web browser.
The primary purpose is to used SSL is to keep sensitive data sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the proposed receiver can access it. SSL Certificate is important because the data you send on the web is passed from computer to computer to get to the targeted server.
Credit cards and social security numbers are two of the most important types of sensitive data that need an SSL certificate. E-commerce or onilne store sites also need an SSL certificate. If you are or plan on allowing major credit cards online, you need a merchant account - most of them require you to use an SSL certificate on your site.
Types of SSL certificates:
  • Rapid SSL
  • Quick SSL
  • Quick SSL (Premium)
  • TrueBusinessID
Rapid SSL and Quick SSL are dedicated SSL certificates that can be used by any kind of businesses. The Quick SSL (premium) certificate is an affordable SSL certificate assigned within a short period with an extended warranty and a dynamic True Site Seal. The TrueBusinessID is especially useful for eCommerce websites as it displays a green color icon on the left-hand side of the web browser or a green address bar which indicates that the website is secured. It provides with trusted security and support to your clients that your site is trustworthy and reliable.
