Hello u all pros. am just new in the world of dedicated servers etc. i'll explain what i need then you may help me out. i want to have a server to host my website and like 10 customers websites and there email service etc. then i want to use it to make backup of my files and have a small irc server running on it with approximately 5000 Users. that would take up around 2000gb of traffic maybe. so can anyone of you guide me to a good provider where its posible to do these things. i need at least a pentium Iv 2 Ghz with 1 Gb ram and 120Gb hard disk. and i think would need like 5mbit connection line. any advice? thanks in advance! and do excuse me if my questions are stupid, just a newbie! thanks!
Hello. I am new to these forums and this is my first post ever. I had a question related to IRCD. Which IRCD is the best for small networks and how can it be setup? Do I need any subdomains for an IRCD? Is there anyone who can help or set up the IRCD him/her self without any fees?
Also, I am buying a Virtual Dedicated Server next month for my shell hosting needs and for my friends. How can I resolve Vhosts so that they maybe used with eggdrops/BNC's. As someone already said that you could get yourself a subdomain from afraid.org, can that subdomain be used as a vhost? I already have a couple of subdomains from afraid.org and I dont know what to do with them.
One more thing, How can I make my VDS (Virtual Dedicated Server) more secure so that it cannot be hacked easily and what do I do in case of a DoS attack?
If someone could kindly tell me how vhosts are resolved and how i could setup an IRCD?
And oh yeah, does anyone know about redwoodvirtual.com ?? I am getting my Virtual Server from them coz they allow IRC. Please tell me about this company if someone does know.
