kbits=KBps. If you want to convert to bytes then 8 bits=1byte

The spec of the server is not relevant in this instance as it the bandwith that will limit the service.

It's impossible to tell whether the time chip will be good or bad as you will only know once you install ntp. Most modern boards are quite good. Various ntp diagnostics will give you an idea of the values. Have a look at my ntp server by entering the ip address 195.137.55.38 and tick the variables box. The values that I am referring to are offset, which is how much the server differs from the stratum 1 server ( latest reading I have is half a micro second) and the delay, which is the time taken to connect to the server.

I get both fine. Perhaps both sites are using firewall rules that prevent access from ip addresses in China. Sad as this maybe a lot of sites are preventing access from countries in the far East due to crackers. I have had a lot of problems with Korean addresses and therefore deny access. mrknisely could be more specific as owns his site.

Hmm... Don't know why. My website it available to anyone anywhere on the internet. What address do you get when you ping them?

I get the following:
mrknisely.is-a-geek.org = 69.81.140.112
dyndns.org = 63.208.196.110


Oh, you should be able to put a www in front of my domain and get there too. I've got wildcard DNS setup so you could put http://seow.mrknisely.is-a-geek.org and still get there.

Anyway, let me know. I'd be happy to help yout troubleshoot the issue.

hey guys, im following this thread, and i have a question for you who know what your doing.

im looking to start my own site, blah blah blah..doesnt seem so hard..

what i dont understand, ATM, is a DNS Q.

I have a static IP. i was reading BIND can make my IP 63.xxx.xxx to www.mywebsiteathome.com

do i have to pay for that then? i was under the impression, that i could have my own name, with .COM at the end, all for free if i sat down and configured it porperly using a name server.

however, the only examples i get are inTRAnet examples.


bottom line:

if i have static ip, do i have to BUY the name for my site?
or can i set it up without buying anything?

thanks in advance!

Yes you do have to buy a domain name. The fee you pay is purely for the admin of the name by Nominet so that they can setup the DNS address for the name. You won't have to setup bind on your own system if you don't intend running an e-mail server. The direction of the name can usually be set via the registrar that you buy through. Mine have a control panel that I have access to and can set the www address.

This looks like a local DNS resolution error at your isp level.

Edit: Try using http://69.81.140.112 in the address bar of your browser and see if you resolve to the site.

Seow,

Yeah, the IP you are getting for my doamin is definitely wrong. The above IP is the correct one.

Madskilzman,

Yes, you do need to pay for your domain. You are paying for the right to be the sole user of that name, and for the rigistrar to advise the .com server of who is the responsible DNS servers for your domain.

For example, I could register medomainname.com. I'd pay them $ and tell them my public address is the responsible DNS server for that domain. They would then forward that info to the .com server. Now, whenever anyone wants to get to mydomainname.com they will send a DNS A query to my DNS server. I will then respond to them with my public IP as the answer to their query and then their browser will talk with my web server.

You could just use that domain, but you would need to convice those who want to get to you to send their DNS queries to your own Bind server for it to work since .com doesn't know about your domain.

Hope this is helpful!

Soew_ming,

My only suggestion is to use DNS servers. If you are getting bad DNS responses, you can only remidy that by using correct DNS servers.

Dyndns.org may have some sort of round-robin DNS, so you might get a diffetnt IP each time you ping it.

Regarding setup without a GUI, you would setup your website using a tool like Nvu, FrontPage, etc on a machine with X and then push the resulting data to the public folder on the webserver. You can do that either using FTP, SCP, or any other file transfer method. Heck, you could burn it to a CD and move it over if you want.

Hope this helps!

I think there is another way for me to do so without moving the designed webpage from A machine to B machine but just on the same machine. I can just install the GUI of LINUX (Gnome/KDE) and then configure it not to automatically run X at it's startup.

Once I do like that, on every starting of my linux machine, it will just log into terminal. So when everytime i need to do any GUI design, i just manually log into the X. but when I need to save my server resource by running it as a Webserver, then I just log out from X and come back to the terminal again. I think it works right? (only a little troublesome )

Yes, that will work just fine.

I wouldn't be too concerned about having X running though. Unless your website sees a large ammount of traffic, the resources you save by not running X will not have any impact on the speed at which it is able to serve up the pages.

My website sees only about 50 visitors on a good day, so I don't worry about the resource issue.
