If you are a serious webmaster who is very careful about his website then you might have idea about ‘how important a control panel is for your website?’ There are many control panels available and selection of a specific control panel is a difficult decision because each of these comes with their own pros and cons.
Many webmasters will claim cPanel as the best control panel and even web hosting services providers provides a hosting package with this name as ‘cPanel web hosting‘. More than being simple and availability of extra features this control panel is very easy to learn and comfortable from both, client and admin side. Latest upgrades of providing better support for service clustering in windows it has captured more share of internet market, but still this feature has few bugs which should be removed very soon.
Plesk’s presence is very long in the market as it has few features of its unique type and not available with other control panels. Plesk provides better clustering support than any other control panel. It is possible to set up a network of multiple servers and make them to act as a single service unit. So surprisingly it becomes possible to run both Linux servers and Windows servers as a single unit. According to to recent news Parallels has taken over Plesk
This control panel is becoming very popular with a cruising speed these days. Though it may not have as much features as other control panels have, but so far stability and resource usage is concerned it is far better than others. Other advantage is because of having less features the ratio of bugs is also less. This is suitable for budget hosts as it is capable of hosting multiple clients with a great stability.
Other control panels like ‘Hsphere’ are outdated already and being dominated cleanly by above three which are really making the choice difficult for webmasters.
You can say, that somehow everything you do on the Internet is a matter of packets, and to be more precise, of IP packets. For example, all the Web pages that you receive on your computer, come in a variety of packages, and all the emails you send are also transmitted in packets. The networks that transfer data for all sites in small packets are called packet switched networks. On Internet, the network part of an e-mail in parts of a certain size are called bytes. This is what we call packages. Each packet carries the information that will help you reach your destination – basically the IP address of the sender of the packet, the IP that must receive, something to tell the network how many packets have left in the message, and the number of each particular package.
The packet carries data using Internet protocols, which is TCP / IP ( Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol ). Each packet contains part of the message body. Typically, a package usually takes about 1500 bytes.
Each packet is then sent to its destination via the best available route – a route that can be taken by the other packets of the message or any message packets. This makes the network more efficient. For starters, the network can balance the load of several facilities within milliseconds. Second, if there is a problem with one or more computers as the message is being transferred, packets can be routed to alternative sites, ensuring complete delivery of the message.
Depending on the type of network, packets can be referred by various names, such as frames, blocks, cells or segments. However, in most packages, whatever type they may be, there are three distinct parts:
Header – The header contains instructions on data that is carried in the packet.
These instructions may include:
Load or Payload - is also called the body or packet data. This is the data that the packet is carrying from one place to another. If a package is of a “fixed” size, ie smaller than the standard size with which travels across the network, then you must add a filler to reach the correct size.
The tail - usually contains a few bits that tell the receiving device that has reached the end of the package. Normally it takes a check for errors. The most common method is used in packet is CRC ( Cyclic Redundancy Check ).
Usually it works as follows: Take the sum of all 1s in loading and linking. The result is stored as a hexadecimal value in the queue. The receiving device adds these 1s in the payload and compares the result to the value stored in the queue. If the value matches, the packet is good. But if the value does not match, the receiving device sends a request to the source device to forward the packet.
To give us an idea of how they interact routers with IP packets, we should think of it this way: Each packet contains protocols, source and destination addresses, and the packet number is. The routers in the network will look at the destination address in the header and compare it to a routing table that stores, to find out where to send the packet. Once the packet arrives at its destination, such as a computer, the TCP / IP stack team will remove the header and order each packet assembling the message based on the sequence numbers in each packet.
So, what is a 404 page? It basically tells you that the server cannot find the website page you’re looking for. However, instead of using the 404 error page by default, you can create one. Here’s how it’s done.
First, you need your .htaccess file that should be in the directory of your Web server where you have hosted your pages. If you cannot find, you have to create one. You’ll probably have to contact your hosting support to ask them how to create it or edit it. You might want to use a text editor and then upload it to the server, or create and edit directly from the server tool they use.
Once you have the .htaccess file created and edited by adding a line like the following:
ErrorDocument 404 https://www.esds.co.in/404page.php
Now that the line in the .htaccess file points to the error page we create. This is just an HTML document. Once you’ve created, save it and call 404page.php or html as per url structure. The next step is to upload the .htaccess file to the server and the error page.
Once you are located in the corresponding directory we have to get it going. We do this by changing the attributes CHMOD to 644. You can do through a Telnet or FTP program of your choice. If you connect via Telnet and do it via command, you must type the following:
chmod 644 .htaccess
Now you must try if it works. Simply type your domain in the browser points to a page that does not exist, and you should see the 404 error page. If not, make sure the CHMOD is configured correctly, and if you still have problems, your Web hosting company can surely help you.
BCC is a function used in emails and have an interesting purpose in some cases. An average email recipient has three classes, the first is the usual “To” recipient “CC” and finally the “BCC”. The first one is intended for the main recipients of the email, the second is for those recipients who are to receive a copy of the mail, and finally, the BCC who will receive a copy of the email but their email will not be seen by the other recipients. The usefulness of the BCC is to allow a long list of people interested in receiving the email, but for some reason they want to remain hidden.
The “To” field is for sending mail to people who are active in a project or subject of the email. This field addresses all visible together by interest of the email. This is because it is assumed that all are related to work and therefore have to keep in touch. On the other hand, the “CC” field are people who will not directly addressed email, and can also be interesting to know their e-mail each other.
The “BCC” field may be people who are related in some way to the job or project, but it is not essential that your email addresses are known. This can be for several reasons. The most common use for the primary recipient does not know who is receiving a copy of the email. While this can be done easily by a second copy of the message body and by forwarding the BCC field allows us to do this in a simple way and in a single step.
The BCC recipient will see the main direction on who is sending the mail (the “To” field), but the main target will see it is the only one who is sending the email. In mailing lists, the BCC camp is normally used as a courtesy for individuals who are part of the list. Even if everyone agrees to share your e-mail, have a mailing list too long is a risk of spam. It is also a risk for the subject of certain viruses, which include all the email addresses to replicate. The BCC field stops get all directions.
The meaning of BCC is Blind Carbon Copy, and is a term that predates the computers we know. At other times, when letters were written, it was done alternating pages of carbon paper between normal paper where it was written. When writing a letter several copies were made. Addresses and greetings were often left blank during the carbon copy, and then added by hand later. In this way the recipient does not know who else was receiving the letter.
This simple tutorial will explain how to create an email auto-responder in cPanel. For the setting to work you must have an email address created in cPanel.
Auto-responders will send a pre-generated message to anyone who sends an e-mail to an e-mail configured. To make the configuration of Auto-Response in cPanel follow the steps below:
Click Create / Modify.
And voila! Your autoresponder is configured.
