Site Management - Technical Aspects

A standard network protocol that transfers file from one host like a local PC to another host i.e. your web server is called as File Transfer Protocol. The users can choose from numerous free ftp software programmes that can allow them to update their web pages at any hour of the day.

As soon as a hosting package is purchased, we get the "ftp details" that consists of the host name, password and User ID. And when the website gets completed and receipt of payment is received by us for any work done, these ftp details are sent to the clients.

For making an FTP connection, you will require the following information:

  1. FTP Hostname (you may use any domain name in the current package)
  2. User name
  3. Password

A user can choose from many easy to use FTP programs, which are accessible for purchase or as freeware. The most usually used programs are:

CuteFTP: Providing a user-friendly Windows interface, CuteFTP simplifies FTP programs and gives ease to the user by Lessoning!!!! reducing command-line utility complications. Apart from this, a novice PC user can be benefitted from CuteFTP as it offers them the ability to upload, download and edit files on remote FTP servers.

FileZilla: One of the most powerful FTP-client for Windows NT4, 2000 and XP is FileZilla. Supporting many unique features, this fast as well as reliable application is basically for rendering ease to the user.

WISE-FTP: For allowing users to download and upload files from any FTP server, WISE-FTP, a client-software is used.

WS_FTP: As a very popular FTP client, WS_FTP Professional 2007 offers its clients, the following benefits for securely transferring files:

  • Lightning fast transfer speed
  • Industry leading security
  • Time saving automation features

Generally, connection failures are a consequence of making small errors, while typing the host address or user name/password. Once checked and rectified properly, the problems persistent to connection failures can be solved.

Logon Failure, so Quitting

Your FTP access to that web space may be blocked.

This may arise due to the billing maters or if an error occurs in the permission setting of that account. So, for solving the matters arising out of this reason, please contact Weblink support.

Invalid FTP user name/password entered.

The cases related to error made, while entering user name/password are sensitive and can affect the connection, if not taken care of. So, to solve this problem, just go on the FTP Account page, there you can see configuration menu, just copy/paste the details. No problem will occur now and you can access your web space without any hassles.

Incorrect host name in the setup of this connection

Once you have registered the domain, ascertain that the domain is ready (Domain registrations take minimum of 24 hours).

Mailing lists allows a user to collect names and addresses for sending mail to a multiple recipients. This means that once a user has established a Mailing List address and added members to the list, he can send an e-mail to the Mailing List address, and the e-mail will be received by the entire group of members. Also, as per the settings chosen by you, all members or anyone can write to the list, thereby acknowledging the entire group at once.
The comma-separated values (or CSV; also known as a comma-separated list or Comma-Separated Variable) a simple text file format that stores tabular data. If we look back to the days of mainframe computing, the most commonly used formats on all computer platforms were CVS file format.

Comma separated variable is one execution of a delimited text file, in which commas are used to separate the field values.
For accessing e-mail messages from a remote server, POP3 (Post Office Protocol) and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are used. On an IMAP server, e-mail retrieval and storage can be manipulated by using an e-mail client (such as Microsoft Outlook) from different PC's without the requirement of transferring messages or files to and fro between the computers. This is probable as the messages get stored on the IMAP server, not like the POP3, in which it is requisite to download the entire messages on the PC.

But, what acts as a major advantage of IMAP is that it enables users to establish IMAP folders on the server. And then, the Incoming mail can be structured into the correct folder. Especially, when the IMAP e-mail account is shared by more than one user, IMAP server plays a vital role.
Credit cards cannot be processed on shared hosting packages and managed servers. The credit card industry necessitates users to have a PCI Data Security Standards certification to allow processing of credit cards on your site. PCI Data Security Standards Security certification cannot be acquired on shared hosting packages and managed servers, due to security reasons. This certification can only be availed on Virtual Private Servers (VPS) and dedicated servers.

Depending on your services, you can avail other payment methods such as bank transfers or pay on delivery.
A file placed in your web space that appears next to the URL in the web browser is called favicon or favicon.ico. Stored in an icon format, the file is an image that is 32 x 32 or 16 x 16 pixels.

.tgz means .tar.gz, which means the file is a 'tar' (Tape Archive) file that has been zipped.

  1. A. You need to download and install a tool for decompressing the file namely WinRAR.
    WinRAR can be downloaded from: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
    Windows OS users can download "WinRAR 3.50"
    Mac OS users can download "RAR 3.50 for MacOS X"
    (Note: You may need to purchase the software, after the trial period is over)
  2. Run the WinRAR Program.
  3. Click File -> Open Archive.
  4. Go to the location where you have .tgz/.gz file. Select the file and click Open.
  5. Select the location where you want the extracted file to be saved. Click OK.
  6. Now, the file has been extracted. So, with the help of Notepad/Wordpad, you can view that file.

The most common HTTP error codes and their meanings:

  1. 401: Authorization Required

    This error code means, to view the particular page, the user requires a special access. When you try to open a web page with limited access, you may see the "401 - Authorization Required" error message.

    Solution: Surely, have a user name and password.

  2. A) 403: Forbidden

    When a file is not rightly configured, this error message is displayed (The file needs to be set with "read permissions" for all users.)

  3. A) 404: Page not found

    This error suggests that no web page exists with the name specified by the user at the web site. This may happen because of variety of reasons:

    1. The document no longer exists.
    2. May be the name has been changed.
    3. Might be the document is moved to some other place.

    Solution: Request the site again by Decreasing/going back one level, i.e. by deleting the last part of the address up to the next line ("/"). This may help you to find out the whereabouts of the document that you are searching. Call ONLY the Domain name, if that does not function.

    For instance: http://www.domain-of-your-choice.com/directory/example.html no longer exists. Try (1st step): http://www.domain-of-your-choice.com/directory/ and (2nd step): http://www.domain-of-your-choice.com/

  4. 500: Internal server error (Bad Script Request)

    1. The script, running on the server, could not be executed. This message gets displayed, for instance, if a Perl script is either syntactically not right or the rights put into practice were not allotted.
    2. Within the folder, there is a .htaccess file where the domain name/page is held, or within a previous directory, and this file is not configured rightly and, as such, stopping the running of the Apache web server for your space.

    Solution: The script's syntactic correctness needs to be examined and amended, if you have the essential access rights.

A 404 error message gets displayed when your domain points to a non-existing directory.

When a web server is not able to locate the folder on your site (listed below) and as of now the web server does not know what to do, then it displays the 403 error message.
As soon as the domain name is entered, the server searches in the folder for the first page to display and if it exists, then the site will open.

Some of the customary file names and their priorities on Linux Shared Hosting Packages:

index.html index.htm default.htm index.shtml
home.cgi home.shtml index.php3 welcome.html
home.html index.cgi home.wml index.wml
index.php4 home.php4    

Some of the accepted file names and their priorities on Microsoft Shared Hosting Packages:

default.asp home.html index.asp home.htm
default.htm default.aspx index.html default.html
home.asp home.aspx index.htm index.aspx

Once you have acquired any one of these files, please ascertain that the file names are case-sensitive and a frequent error is to have "Index", which can cause this error.

This may be the outcome of following reasons:

  1. If "Error 400" gets displayed on your website and you are not able to operate your e-mail then this usually means that your account has been frozen by our billing department. Normally, when we don't receive payment from your end, we close your e-mail for the time being. The billing team will only be able to remove the hold on your contract and all will be backup and functioning in around 3 - 5 hours, under normal circumstances.
    All your files will be intact and your domain name(s) is/are secure. However you will need to get in touch with the billing department, for getting your site and e-mail working again.

  2. Your website will be automatically frozen, if you cross your monthly traffic limit and if we don't have a valid Credit Card on file for you. If you still want to reactivate your site, you have an option of buying an additional traffic amount.
Often used as an e-mail marketing tool, an auto-responder is a computer program that enables a user to automatically generate customized responses, whenever an e-mail is received by a specific e-mail address.

If you are off for a vacation, unavailable, and still want to your customers to know that you have got their e-mail, then you can set up an auto-responder for this purpose.

An individual responder can be implemented for each e-mail address carrying a suitable message of up to 1000 characters.
PHP is a web scripting language that is used to build dynamic web pages containing interactive features that greatly enhance the functionality of simple HTML files. PHP5 is run as a default starting Q3 2010 by our Servers. When accessed via browser, the files with the extension .php will be parsed by the webhosting server. By using text editor such as WordPad, Notepad, vi, nano, etc., PHP pages can be created. These pages must be named properly with .php extension. To construct the page regular HTML tags are used and wherever PHP code is needed, PHP tags are used.
Netscape has developed a programming language namely JavaScript that writes commands to your browser, when HTML page is loaded.

Embedded as a small program in a web page, JavaScript is interpreted and executed by the web browser. JavaScript functions can be called from within a web document, often carried out by mouse functions, buttons, or other actions from the user. JavaScript can also be used to completely control Netscape and Microsoft web browsers, including all the known browser attributes.

To handle the management of MySQL over the web, a tool written in PHP has been developed that is known as phpMyAdmin. Available in 47 languages, this tool can be used to:

  • Create/drop/alter tables
  • Delete/edit/add fields
  • Implement any SQL statement
  • Systemize keys on fields
  • Handle privileges
  • Export data into various formats
Subdomains enable a user to segregate the website content into multiple sections by using a prefix in the existing domain name. Functioning as a fully operating site, each subdomain is created under the primary domain account. It is the perfect gateway for guiding recurrent visitors directly to their destination.
For mapping domain names to IP addresses and vice-versa, DNS i.e. Domain Name Server has been developed. DNS manages central lists of IP addresses/domain names and charts the domain names in your internet requests (Internet Explorer Address Bar) to the rest servers on the internet, until the particular website is found.
An automated process that functions at predefined time intervals is known as cron job. These are useful for allocating tasks that your PC automatically performs at the particular time. For instance backing up your website every fortnight, updating databases every month, or sending automated e-mails at specified times.

Cron jobs are incorporated with the Linux Business and Developer Shared Hosting packages as well as Managed Servers.
A Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is the foremost line of protection against online intruders. It is one such protocol that can convey your messages (communications) over the Internet in an encrypted form. An SSL Certificate makes sure that the content transferred remains unchanged and reaches only to the intended server. This technology is frequently used by E-Commerce sites for safeguarding their credit card information.

The SSL Certificate is provided with all Server packages, Developer Shared Hosting packages, and Developer eShops. It can also be availed as an upgrade with all other Shared Hosting plans for only $ 49 per year.

Working on Internet Explorer with a default configuration will always give an error.

Firstly, when you are opening a secure page, Internet Explorer asks you, if you anyways want to continue, by mentioning that everything is not secure.

Selecting No will only display the secure information.

Mozilla Firefox enables you to view the page info, which displays a list of all images and other files that are downloaded to show that page in the browser. This list includes the complete link, so you can view anything that may also include that information, which is not secure.

An A record is part of the zone file that is chiefly used for setting up Mail Exchangers. A records have an ability to focus the entire web traffic towards a specified IP address.
"Canonical name" or CNAME record maps an address to its canonical name. Whenever a name server looks up for a name and discovers a CNAME record, it changes the name and replaces it with the canonical name, thereby, looking up for a new name. These are used only when they are absolutely mandatory. For setting up CNAME records, a user needs to be very knowledgeable about DNS management.

One point where use of CNAME can prove beneficial is, when you require a subdomain for indicating a mail server outside your domain. For instance, if you want "mail.example.com" to reach your registrar's mail server, then in place of entering the IP address, you can put in "mail.example.com CNAME webmail.your_registrar.com", so that if the IP address of the mail server is changed, you don't have to make any updates.

MySQL is a relational database management system and available as a part of open source. MySQL is developed to process the data in the database with the help of SQL. Developers get the APIs of MySQL in the below mentioned languages: -



MySQL is generally used for web applications and for embedded applications. Besides, it has also become a popular alternative to proprietary database systems because of its speed and reliability.
