Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a few questions before signing up

 

1) I am interested on starting up with a basic package and upgrading as necassary - is that possible ?

 

2) How much do .com domains cost ?

 

3) How many sub-domains are allowed ?

And what is the format ? eg something.**** ?

 

4) Are the domains fully registered in my name as owner ie whois will show me I can change the contact info myself. ?

 

5) My PHP programs create temporary sql databases like this :

 

$connection = mysql_connect($host,$user,$password)

or die ("Couldn't connect to server.");

 

$sql = "CREATE DATABASE `temp2`";

 

$result = mysql_query($sql)

or die("could not execute Create TEMP2");

 

and then creates tables and finally DROPS the db

 

Do my user permissions allow my to do this on the server ?

 

6) Another PHP program sends me email when certain things happen using the $mailsend command

e.g. $mailsend=mail("habbardo@yahoo.com","$subj","$emess","$ehead");

Do your servers send email in this way ?

 

7) Can I send SMS messages to mobile phones ? Is there a charge for this ?

 

 

E-commerce.

 

1) I want to receive payments using Paypal - any problem with this ?

2) What other options do you offer ? MIRVA ? what cost ?

3) Some data is confidential and I want to use an SSL directory.

What is the cost of setting this up with a certificate ?

Which certificate do you use ? Does the padlock sign appear on a users browser ?

What are the space and traffic limitation on using SSL directory ?

4) is my ip address static ?

 

5) Do you offer a shared SSL - to start up with ?

 

PHP and Access

 

1) Can I use htaccess files to change the config when needed.

Is PHP safemode enabled or disabled ?

 

2) Do I get access to phpmyadmin ?

 

3) Do I use FTP or SCP/SFTP upload files ?

Hi Fredatuk,

 

Welcome to the forums!

A few questions ehhh quite a few eh :blink:

In generel examine the site http://www.totalchoicehosting.com. You will get to know much!

 

I am just a customer as you and i'll try to answer what I know. The rest will follow shortly by other, more knowledgable users.

NOTE. I am not a TCH spokesman, just a fellow user

 

 

1 I am interested on starting up with a basic package and upgrading as necassary - is that possible ?

Yes, simply by entering a helpdesk ticket and requesting upgrade to a new package. They will take care of the rest including payment adjustings etc.

 

2) How much do .com domains cost ?

TCH doesn't sell domains. They offer domain registration through Wild West Domains. .com are $10,95 a year.

 

3) How many sub-domains are allowed ?

As many as you like :clapping: No restrictions

 

4) Are the domains fully registered in my name as owner ie whois will show me I can change the contact info myself. ?

Yep, if you choose WWD you have total control in everything

 

5) My PHP programs create temporary sql databases like this : etc

As far as I know... No problems.

 

6)Another PHP program sends me email when certain things happen using the $mailsend command

Not sure abt this one. But one way or another it will be possible. mail() works here..

 

7) Can I send SMS messages to mobile phones ? Is there a charge for this ?

 

I don't think so. It's another kind of service I think..

 

 

E-commerce.

1) I want to receive payments using Paypal - any problem with this ?

I know it's possible but no experiences with. Quite a few other pple will

 

2) What other options do you offer ? MIRVA ? what cost ?

Depends if they have software to install. TCH doesn't offer anything but it's space. On which you can install such services software :)

 

3) Some data is confidential and I want to use an SSL directory.

I know it's possible but don't know any prices.

 

4) is my ip address static ?

Yep, there no ISP but hosting company :huh: ;)

 

5) Do you offer a shared SSL - to start up with ?

Yep, it's possible. More information on the site.

 

PHP and Access

1) Can I use htaccess files to change the config when needed.

Short answer. Yes

 

Is PHP safemode enabled or disabled ?

Disabled

 

2) Do I get access to phpmyadmin ?

Yes, in C-panel through MySql databases there is a link to start PhpAdmin. You have full control !

 

3) Do I use FTP or SCP/SFTP upload files ?

You can use FTP, filemanager in C-panel and also SFTP I think.

 

Enough. You can join now :D

Hi Fredatuk, and welcome to the forums! :D

 

As for your questions, let's see:

 

1) I am interested on starting up with a basic package and upgrading as necassary - is that possible ?

 

Absolutely. That's probably the best way to get started :clapping:

 

 

2) How much do .com domains cost ?

 

Domains cost $10.95 per year.

 

 

3) How many sub-domains are allowed ?

And what is the format ? eg something.**** ?

 

You can create as many subdomains as you like, TCH does not impose any limit. And yes, the subdomains are in the for of subdomain.******

 

 

4) Are the domains fully registered in my name as owner ie whois will show me I can change the contact info myself. ?

 

Yes, the domains will be fully registered in your name.

 

 

5) My PHP programs create temporary sql databases like this :

[...]

Do my user permissions allow my to do this on the server ?

 

You can't create or drop databases with your regular user but you can do all that with phpMyAdmin, which is pre-installed in every account.

 

 

6) Another PHP program sends me email when certain things happen using the $mailsend command

e.g. $mailsend=mail("habbardo@yahoo.com","$subj","$emess","$ehead");

Do your servers send email in this way ?

 

Yes, you can send e-mails using PHP's mail() function.

 

 

7) Can I send SMS messages to mobile phones ? Is there a charge for this ?

 

Well, the short answer is that no, you can't send SMS messages to mobile phones, beacuse you'd need an SMS gateway for that. The longer answer is that if you have a way to use a third party gateway via a PERL/PHP/Python script or if you want to buy a dedicated server and install a gateway yourself, then yes, you can send SMS messages to mobile phones.

 

 

E-commerce.

 

1) I want to receive payments using Paypal - any problem with this ?

 

No problems at all. If I'm not mistaken, Paypal only needs you to put a link to their servers with certain codes so their servers know how much to pay and to whom. That's perfectly possible here.

 

 

2) What other options do you offer ? MIRVA ? what cost ?

 

I haven't looked at Mirva in a long time but last time I did, it was only a shopping cart. Is that what you're referring to? If so, TCH offers you the possibility to automatically install osCommerce or Agora cart directly from your account control panel.

If you're referring to credit card processing, then no, TCH does not offer that service. You can, however, search the forums about this subject, since it has been brought up before.

 

 

3) Some data is confidential and I want to use an SSL directory.

What is the cost of setting this up with a certificate ?

Which certificate do you use ? Does the padlock sign appear on a users browser ?

What are the space and traffic limitation on using SSL directory ?

 

You can use the shared SSL certificate, which is free for all accounts. If you want a dedicated certificate, it will cost you $35 for installation and $115 per year. The padlock sign always appears on a user browser when the user is visiting a site that uses SSL, unless, of course, the browser doesn't have a padlock sign to show (I believe all the "big" browsers have that feature, though). As for the traffic and space limitations, they are the same. You'll be using disk space and bandwidth from your account's quota.

 

4) is my ip address static ?

 

Yes, the server's IP address is static.

 

 

5) Do you offer a shared SSL - to start up with ?

 

As I mentioned above, yes, all accounts have free shared SSL :blink:

 

 

PHP and Access

 

1) Can I use htaccess files to change the config when needed.

Is PHP safemode enabled or disabled ?

 

Yes, you can use .htaccess and PHP safe mode is disabled.

 

 

2) Do I get access to phpmyadmin ?

 

Also mentioned above, yes, phpMyAdmin is installed in your control panel :huh:

 

 

3) Do I use FTP or SCP/SFTP upload files ?

 

You can use FTP but due to security concerns, TCH has decided to stop offering SSHl access some time ago, so you won't be able to use SCP or SFTP to upload files.

 

 

There. I hope this helps you :)

Hi again - thanks for your answers - one thing surprises me.

 

You say I have access to phpmyadmin

but my programs can not create a db ?

 

phpadmin is written in php

and my program just does the same thing that I would do in the SQL box

in phpmyadmin.

 

are you sure I can not do it automatically ? Is there some way of doing this maybe later on if not straight away ? My programs set up an area for accounting information for clients and I want each one to be held in a seperate db.

 

I want to give imeediate access so I don't want to have to set them up manually. Any ideas ?
