  1. @wolstech I use XP and I have a support for SNI-based SSL with no problem in such browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Opera (even the old "real" one v12) or with cURL used with PHP. I didn't check the cURL, but newer browsers (not Opera v12) for default are using TLS 1.2. However there IS a problem with connecting to SOME websites/servers. I'm not sure why exactly, but probably because of the way the 'handshake' is made or because of how the certificates are verified. @SMARTDODO What is a difference for YOU using TLS 1.2 or 1.3 for your connections if SOMEONE ELSE is using TLS 1.1 or 1.0 or is not using encryption at all? Why do you want to force on EVERYONE to use only newest encryption methods? Remember that forcing newer encryption methods means that you are forcing updates of software. Updating software quite often means forcing the system updates. Forcing system updates quite often means forcing the hardware upgrade or change. What's for to change the hardware if old one is still working? That's not economical AND not ecological. Even if you will properly in 100% recycle the old hardware (which is currently not tha case) then while transporting it, during the whole recycle process, during production of new hardware, packing it and transporting (very often on very large distance) you are using additional resources and producing additional trash and pollution. In my opinion the old hardware should be used for as long as it's possible and that's why I don't really understand this eagerness to update and upgrade everything so quickly with disabling support for older softwares, which means cutting access for everyone that can not or don't want to get new hardware. And no, security is not an argument for me, because with having old system and old software and computer running 24/7 I have no problems with security since... 2006? And in 2006 that was simply my stupidity and not system or software problem. If someone is conscious/aware computer user than can use older software and have no problems, while if someone is unwise then even yesterday's update won't be enough to protect him.
  2. @ Krydos I think that the keywords are: I think that Leah would prefer different anchor text. @ Leah I think that all the people in the internet should create content for other people, not for search engines or any other bots. "Link which is actually a link" is in my opinion great for people, every person knows where it leads to, while "links with special keywords as anchor text" are sometimes confusing as to where these links actually lead to. And search engines... Let it evolve. How it worked and what was important for search engines 20 years ago?... And how it will work in next 20 years? Faster we will understand that the content should be for people, that important is to how it looks in the human eyes, faster search engine developers will have to modify them to reflect this.
  3. I can copy my above post from March. Space left on Tommy's /tmp = 684 kB Space left on Ricky's /tmp = 52 MB Space left on Johnny's /tmp = 528 MB
  4. @ sohamb03 It looks that it's using ZeroSSL and also requires being registered. @ Krydos When trying to paste LE account key that I've already created in the past with ZeroSSL, it warns me that it's incorrectly formatted. Maybe that's just different prefix?... I'll try to play with it later. After browsing a little bit, personally - on Windows - I found it easy, quick and comfortable to use Win32/Win64 portable client: https://github.com/do-know/Crypt-LE/releases It doesn't require any installation, no dependencies, you just need to type the right command. So it's not web based, I wonder how easy (or not) it will be to instruct some total layman.
  5. I just found that ZeroSSL.com requires now registration to create or prolong Let's Encrypt certificates (no any registration was needed 3 months ago). Additionally you can only get 3 certificates with free account. That was good and easy for layman way to get free certificates, I was able to easily explain what and how to do for non-tech people. Now it's not that cool anymore. Anyone knows a ZeroSSL-like web based alternative? That doesn't require registration and doesn't limit you to just 3 Let's Encrypt certificates just like ZeroSSL before?
  6. This *is* annoying in cPanel. But there are two other options (only second one is possible on HelioHost) to have all domains files (including main one) in separate folders. First option to deal with it in cPanel is to have all addon domains pointed to the folders outside of the main public_html. This is *intentionally* not possible on HelioHost. Second option is to use .htaccess rewrite engine. Create new "maindomainfolder" folder inside of public_html, move all main domain files in there and directly in public_html create .htaccess with something like: RewriteEngine On RewriteBase / RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?maindomain\.com$ RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /maindomainfolder/$1 [L]There may be conflict with other rewrite rules in other .htaccess files inside that folder, some modifications of them may be needed to reflect folder changes.
  7. False results removed. My IP is here, saved with this post. I think that if - like wolstech wrote - some things didn't work as expected, then that could be also the reason of the ban. Shortly before ban my monitor reported issues with FTP, altough I don't have records what exactly FTP server response was, I only know it was slower and different than expected.
  8. There seems to be no space on Tommy's /tmp. And by the way, Ricky may need some cleanup of /tmp, too.
  9. Hi, vassbo, and thank you. My page was designed in 2009 for 800x600 resolution and still looks fine for me in 1024x768. And for all people using bigger screen resolutions I have always one tip: [CTRL] + [PLUS]. Most browsers remember this setting per domain name. [ctrl] + [minus] for shrinking and [ctrl] + [zero] for reset. And sorry, but I can't say anything about your style, unfortunatelly, as in my browsers - either in Firefox v40 or Opera v30 (both from 2015 so not old at all in my personal opinion) - whole userstyles org website is simply a blank page for me. Thank you.
  10. Quote: Invalid response from http://cyprusfriendl...PoU9328erccAfc4 Obviously invalid response, such file does not exist and everyone can see only 404 page. It looks that you didn't upload that file at all. You have Options +indexes turned on, so I can see that you have some two validation files uploaded on October 20 in the acme-challenge folder, but no any new from January or February, definitelly no "JUjouu_Jm-BYNiF36o-5cvd1S7u3PoU9328erccAfc4".
  11. There seems to be some problem with NS2 for over 30 hours already, since Thursday, December 5th 2019, ~14:30 UTC.
  12. For future reference: In cPanel in the section "Files > Disk usage" you have specified what directories exactly use how many disk space. At the bottom there is whole directory tree, by clicking on the greater-than sign you can browse all sub-sub-subdirectories and find out where exactly your disk space is. And the disk space available for MySQL/PostgreSQL databases is everything that left from total limit after counting the space used by files and folders.
  13. This *is* unwanted many times. Luckily the subdomain name can be *anything*, not neccessarily the same as addon domain name, so make it random while adding the domain name (ie. "aejf74-dhjtru83-few7") if you don't want anyone to find it and access in the web. --------------------------- @ admins By the way... While on Ricky (and other webhost with cPanel that I have access to) the document root folder for addon domain can be any folder within user home directory, on Johnny and Tommy it can be only inside of the main public_html - why? What if someone don't want the addon domain files being accessible trough primary.domain/addon-domain-folder/ URL? Of course, such access can be blocked with .htaccess, but user have to have knowledge how to do this.
  14. If someone is thinking about keeping websites online for a really really long term, then always should choose the option to register own top level domain name, which is independent of any webhosting, registrar or any other company. This way if anything will goes wrong with the webhost - we can move on to another one without changing the address, keep all the visitors and position in the web. If the webhost won't be enough one day and dedicated server will be needed, no problem. Even if the domain registrar will bankrupt, we can change the registrar and keep the domain. At least one own domain for ~10$ a year (to have multiple websites under subdomains of it). At the very early stage of my "webmaster adventure" I was using free subdomains from the webhosts. Very quickly, after ~2 years I've regret that, when moving between the webhosts I've had to inform all users about the address change. I've moved to free subdomains from the services other than webhosts, which can be pointed to any webhost. That was better solution but again, after ~4-5 years even well known services with good opinions started to disappear. The only one I still know and can be the last resort is freedns.afraid.org (not to mention .tk/.ml/.ga/.cf/.gq domains, which I do NOT recommend at all), all the other that had tens of thousands customers and years of history doesn't exist anymore. So finally one day I've decided to pay for the domain name, at least I know that no matter what will be in next 10 or 20 years with any webhost or registrar, my websites will be still under the same addresses (and I can keep the same email addresses) as long as I'll pay for the domain and have the backup copy of files and databases. Unless someone doesn't look further than few years ahead, or see no problem in changing the address every few years, then free subdomains from the webhosts are fine.
  15. @sohamb03 For future reference... In such situations it DOES matter. If one of the nameservers is not working at all (but the other is working properly) - there is no problem. If both nameservers are online, but one have no records (or wrong records) for the domain name - there is problem: randomly in ~50% of cases we won't have access to the domain name (website, incomming mails etc.).
