Backup Server

“eh.. how come your website down ? have been suspended ?” .. ahaha..

“err…dun know..” .. kind of the shameful conversation after all…

then i’ve decided to get some backup server for that kind of situation..
to do that.. is quite simple.
let’s say we have some other hosting with different domain at some other server..
the issue is not all webhosting is using directadmin.. which we can simply add another domain.. to be managed.
if it about the full thing support for the whole domain.. it is quite simple.. add another addons domain or can parked domain also.
But .. what if .. i want just to have one sub-domain to be hosted to somewhere else?
if direct admin.. it would not stop the setup if something not set yet in the nameserver.. and it also dun even care if it a subdomain or the main domain..

Bwith cpanel.. it is quite tricky..
.. all you have to do is add a CNAME record with your desired sub-domain.. pointing to main domain
that you’re hosting it..

let say the back-up server is with something.net .. and you subdomain.. something like www2.mydon.net
so just add a CNAME www2.mydon.net with value as something.net
then after about few hour.. login into cpanel of the something.net add a addons domain..
www2.mydon.net
… it will check the nameserver for www2.mydon.net.. and if it is have been propagate correctly ….
then you should seen a successful message.. You may also specify that to be which folder of something.net as well.
also the ftp login… pass and so on later..

the example of successful implementation of this can be seen as at http://www1.namran.net which is hosted to somewhere else..
complete different from this primary server..

Credit goes to schocher.net for the space.. and access. ~!!

    hi bro, i am doing the same thing as you but if you just show the Connection Information it does not show the bandwidth and speed.

    another tool that similar with Mobile Connect is Vodafon Mobile Connect.

    btw, does the modem goes into stalled mode of purplish LED and sometimes resume to light blue?

      .. Vodafon Mobile Connect is the software come with the USB Modem itself right.

      And it only run on windows machine..
      for the bandwidth and speed , you can monitor it by adding some “applet” to the “top panel”
      namely “NetSpeed”

      the modem goest into purplish LED and back to light blue due to coverage .. (i think switching between GPRS and EDGE) mode.. can also dropped by itself whenever idle. the best one is with CYAN color.. indicating of 3G coverage available.

    haha.. for the testing purpose..that ubuntu was running on livecd..
    -with the sluggish internet connection provided by
    these so-called wifi broadband..
    – too lazy to plug in usb and transfer back to other os.

    ended up captured on handphone camera a lot easier.
    afterward can just bluetooth transfer it and upload to blog.
