  1. Great advise for spam, thank you for the post Jim, one thing I can tell you (and I'm grateful to all of TCH people) is the way they treat spam. Although I have quite few other email accounts (and especially from greek ISP's,where I live) I got a LOT of spam. From TCH account I recieve very very little amount of spam, and due to the reasons that Jim mentioned ! Thank you for the support guys, Skeptismo,
  2. Hello to everyone, Sorry to bother, but I'm totally newbie to scripts etc. I tried to install a FormMail script which I found on the TCH forums, and I started with Ultimate Form Mail I tried to install the UltimateFormMail script into my site. I've done the following: 1. created a folder named "scripts" under my account 2. created a folder "ultimate_form_mail" under scripts folder 3. modify the mailit.php with my mail address to send the requests. 4. modify the html page with the following : action="/scripts/ultimate_form_mail/mailit.php" but when I tried to test the script, I got the error : The requested URL /~qwertyc/scripts/ultimate_form_mail/mailit.php was not found on this server. (Note that "qwertyc" is my account name) What is wrong with that ? (can I use another easy to configure script ?) I forgot to tell you that in my account I have not set DNS records yet (I use it for test purposes only). Maybe that causes the problem or not ? Thanks to all Panayiotis
  3. Never mind Raul, (thanks for the answer though) propably the issue is that server only accepts ISO8859-1. The "problem" still remains, so I can not see right my encodings, and so I have to change manually from my browser the encoding before adding/reading a forum that is not writter in English ! Anyone else (outside US-England,) has the same problem here ?? Thanks, Panayiotis
  4. Hello Kimberly, be ABSOLUTELY sure that the support is outstanding here, and if you just open a ticket, is always somebody available for help. At least that's whats happening for me. For the databases issues, I think Bruce and Andy have answered your questions.
  5. Hello, I want to start building my site, but I'm totally new to web design. I have a little experience on Frontpage and nothing more. What will be the best program to start studying ? I've heard that Frontpage (because of MS compatibility issues etc) is not so w3c compliant, and although it has many options, you need Frontpage extensions on your site to support these. I've also heard of Flash, and Dreamweaver and HomeSite. What progrmas of those may I choose for start and still be compliant with TCH hosting ? Thanks for your time,
  6. For one more time, BRAVO for support/tech team in TCH. In less than 5 min they've got my old site transfer here, and some minor problems solved immediatelly ! Guys, my sincere congratulations to all of you. Have a nice day (or noon/evening whatever.), I'm going to sleep now Regards, Panayiotis Rock Sign (it's getting too common, but I would say it again and again !!)
  7. Ok, I just entered a ticket in support, to help me tranfer my old site into TCH. I'll wait until someone contact me, and give me any instructions for the transfer, then "share my experience" with all others. So, keep waiting ... Panayiotis
  8. Yes upgraded would be an option, but I didn't want to do it, because my Starter Plan was just for testing purposes, to evaluate the TCH services, etc. There wasn't anything valuable there, so I needed a new plan to host my site anyway. BTW I think this is a really cool way to test something .. buy 1 month of Starter Plan, mess it up somehow (if you are like ne, totally new to web hosting), and learn the correct way to do it on your "live" site. I have been deceived 1-2 times in "cheap" web hosting plans, in which you must pay for a hole year for example 15-20 $, then after 2-3 months they say to you you must prepay for the 2nd year, and then .. dissapeared ! One of the most great things of TCH is that offers the 1 month payment in their Starter Plan, something that other companies don't (you must pay a hole year even if you don't use it ), and you can easily test / evaluate TCH services. Anyway guys thanks for your replies
  9. Hello to everyone, I'm finally a "new" user with a Silver Plan account. I want to transfer my old site to my new site. I use cPanel also on the old site, and mainly I want to transfer the mail accounts and settings. I saw on some forum that this can be done. Anyone knows a way to achieve this? I don't want to bother the Admins all the time, just point me the guidelines and if failed then ... I shall ask for help ! Anyway the site design isn't so complicated, but I need to know if I can backup/restore the mails on each account (this is VERY important to me because some users access webmail only and don't downloaded on an email client on their pc's). If I can achieve this, then I'm done ! Can this be done through FTP ? (I mean to download through FTP the accounts mailboxes, and then upload them into TCH host plan) Also does anyone knows if this can be done without loss of emails ? I want to change the DNS tomorrow evening (Friday local time) so to have DNS servers updated through Monday. If someone sends mail that period does it get lost, or goes to either one of my hosts ?? That's all my problems so far, I'd appreciate any help. Regards Panayiotis Rock Sign
  10. Hey guys, don't worry, I re-entered my detaiils and use another email thanthe one I have in the Starter Plan, and everything went ok. Now I'm waiting for the account to be activated and ... oops I go !
  11. Hi again, sorry for all the pain in those questions, but I got an error while getting to a new Silver Plan. I entered my details, I entered the domain I want to host (which I own of course) and then the system on a 2nd page said to me that I had already an account in TCH and I must enter my password for the transaction. I do have a Starter Plan, but only for a month, just to evaluate your services (now THAT's a 4$ thrown out .. ! I should have known the best quality of support in TCH, but what the heck !!) Anyway, I entered the password I use for my starter plan in cPanel, but didn't worked! How can this be resolved ? Can anyone advise me what to do, because I wanto to transfer my site over this weekend (pleeease ?? ) Thanks anyway guys Panayiotis Thumbs Up
  12. Same as Jikrantz as long as support is 24x7 and downtimes/problems are handled by seriously people, I don't care .
  13. So I suppose if I configure my settings in my account, all times I see in forums are accordingly to my local settings, right ? Thank you guys for your help ! Rock Sign
  14. Hi to all, I installed the CGI Bulletin Board script in my account, and ty to navigate through the forums. When writing in Wnglish, everything is fine. When trying to write in my local language (Greek) lthough I can write, I then cannot view my entries but only if I change my default Encoding page in Mozilla (from default Western-ISO-8859-1 to Greek ISO-8895-7) Although I've changed the default character encoding in Mozilla Preferences, the page still doesn't shows correctly and I have to change the Character Encoding every time I want to vie the forum "correctly" (by "correctly I mean to view Greek characters) The same happens with Firefox, and IE Any idea how to fix this ?? Is this a forum config issue or a Mozilla configuration ?? Thanks , Panayiotis
  15. Thank Jikrantz, another question about times shown in posts. For example the reply that Jikrantz entered, shows : "Posted on Aug 25 2004, 07:59 PM" Is that MY local time, Jikrantz's local time or TCH server local time ? Is this configurable ? Thanks again ,
