Question by : Why can’t I create a new Quantasoft Web Hosting (qsh.eu) freehosting?
I’ve used Quantasoft’s free hosting service for some time now and recently discovered that I can’t register a new freehosting. It’s like they’ve ceased this service, but the site’s name still contains “Free Web Hosting” and according to the forums there are people still using it (the free hosting).

Best answer:

Answer by Oliur
About how to use freehosting:
1. Check your website can be run under medium trust level
2. You’ve got email with login and password for FTP server. Login there. Copy your files into ‘www’ folder. ‘www’ is the root folder for your web application, it is something like default ‘wwwroot’ in Windows.
3. Database(s) like *.mdf must be located in ‘App_Data’ folder. Connection string you have to generate using tool in your qsh account
4. you have to provide banner link on all your pages to qsh.eu

that’s it

Question by jason b: how to i know the “host” for my web hoster? like for filezilla?
title says it all
okay i ment like i bought a web hosting service. and i want to upload my files to it from filezilla. how do i find out the host name for that?

Best answer:

Answer by VirtualSound
Filezilla is an FTP server, usually you run that on your own PC to allow another PC to download or upload files from/to it. If you;re trying to transfer files around at home you can use the filezilla server’s IP address as it’s host name. If you are running Windows on the filezilla box then open a command prompt (try typing cmd into the programs/files box in the Startup menu for WIndows 7, then hit enter. For XP try File/Run then type in cmd or maybe command.
At the command prompt type “ipconfig” and look for the IP address (maybe IP v4 address) in the results. If there is more than one (wireless and and Ethernet, for example) use the one that connects you to the other PC: if you are connecting wirelessly use the wireless IP address, if you are plugged in via an Ethernet cable then use the Ethernet adapter’s IP address. It probably should look like 4 numbers separated by periods (mine is 192.168.1.107). Use that as the host name.

Question by jasser hashem: any Web hosting experience ” I want to ubgrad my shared hosting to dedicated hosting” ?
I want to upgrade my shared hosting to dedicated hosting ? do i lose any thing of my hosted content , i mean if i changed my website shared hosting to dedicated what may happen to my website page .
i am UPGRADING to dedicated hosting not moving to new server , (is there any difference in that !) any way i am just paying 3$ over the shared hosted price 4.30$ .

Best answer:

Answer by SharpGuy
Well, if you moved from shared hosting to a dedicated hosting machine, then you will be on a different computer. You can send an email to support and ask them to archive your site and copy it to the new machine. I’m sure they will do it beings that dedicated hosting is lots of money. But I wouldn’t trust it. I’d connect to the machine and copy the files via FTP program to your computer just in case. You can get an old copy (free) of WS_FTP from http://oldapps.com

Not really sure why you’d want a dedicated machine for a website. If you’re using it as a gaming server, then I can see why. But just for a basic website, the price doesn’t outweigh the benefits of being on a dedicated machine.

I am planning to host my website with “Google AdSense” on “Yahoo! Web Hosting”. I have a question if I use “Google AdSense” on my pages and host on Yahoo Web hosting, will it be blocked by Yahoo!?

Best answer:

Answer by reluctant
They won’t like it, but I doubt they’ll block it. It would potentially lead to a huge, embarrassing stink they don’t want. They may not even know, ’cause they do host a *lot* of sites and it’s all automated.

What is a Web Host? I am trying to make a website through WordPress and I understand I need to purchase a ‘web host’, what is this?! Untechnical replies most valued please!
Thank yoooou!

Best answer:

Answer by Nick M
You need a web host to store any files you display on any website or blog or forum. Such as images, text, pages etc.

The best free one which wordpres can be easily installed on is:

x10hosting.com

Though a long process in signing up, since you have to sign up for a forum account as well as the host account, this host is great.

To install, sign up and login, click on the Cpanel URL:

http://lotus.x10hosting.com:2082

and type in your details you filled in when you signed up, then to create your wordpress blog, when you are logged in, scroll down to the bottom an click on : “Fantastico De Luxe”, look on the side for blogs then click on wordpress, the rest should be pretty clear.

If you need more help in setting this up contact me through y profile (Click on my name)

Cheers,

Nick
