Web Hosting

Hosting Services

Prashanta.net serves as a virtual ISP hosting half a dozen websites. We just paid $90 for a year or $7.50/mo at HostMonster for the following:

  • 20 Gigabytes of hosting space
  • Hosting of unlimited domains
  • 5000 Pop/Imap email accounts
  • SSH access (Secure Shell)
  • 500 Gigs/mo of transfer
  • SSL, FTP, Stats
  • CGI, Ruby (RoR), Perl, PHP, MYSQL
  • Automatic installation of a wide variety of the most popular Internet related open source programs.

Prashanta.net has migrated about once a year for the last sevaeral years to a service providers prodiving the best hosting deals. By using ISPs who support cPanel and Fantastico we can migrate all of our accounts to a new ISP in a matter of hours. Three years ago we had two accounts at Bluehost - $200/yr, but only 2 GB storage and 6 domains between the two accounts; now we have 20GB and unlimited domains. In practial terms that means no incremental cost to host an additional account and no additional bother with purchasing more accounts to host small domains.

Domain Registation

They provide an interface for managing portfolios of domain names among other things. The administrator can log into the xyz domain account and change the domain name servers used. This information propagates through the Internet directing all Internet inquiries about xyz to the www.prashanta.net/~xyz/ account. The administrator can also edit the domain’s contact information. Domain names can cost about $8/yr.

 

Services

The new web site can offer considerably more services than in the past. The inportant services used are Mail, Webmail, Addon Domains, FTP Manager, File Manager, Backup, Password Protect Directories, Subdomains, MySQL Databases, SSH/Shell Access, and Fantastico.

Fantastico is the software manager for installing scripts for dynamic interactive web sites and is used to install and upgrade the software. Software Fantastico currently supports:
