What is Telnet?
Telnet is a user command and an underlying TCP/IP protocol for accessing remote computers. Through Telnet, an administrator or another user can access someone else’s computer remotely. On the Web, HTTP and FTP protocols allow you to request specific files from remote computers, but not to actually be logged on as a user of that computer. With Telnet, you log on as a regular user with whatever privileges you may have been granted to the specific application and data on that computer.A Telnet command request looks like this (the computer name is made-up):


The result of this request would be an invitation to log on with a userid and a prompt for a password. If accepted, you would be logged on like any user who used this computer every day.

Telnet is most likely to be used by program developers and anyone who has a need to use specific applications or data located at a particular host computer.

If your business is interested in creating its own cloud storage or computing center, OpenStack is probably on your list of tech to review. In this article we’ll explain what you’ll need and recommend the best hosting providers for this application.

OpenStack lets you create your own “clouds” on the internet. With it, you can distribute computing, storage, and networking over any number of computers from a single interface. Making OpenStack work will require that you have fairly technical knowledge. Make sure any host you use doesn’t have a problem with OpenStack.

You can read a detailed breakdown of each host later in this article, but if you’re in a hurry, here’s a preview of the best 5 hosts for OpenStack:

  1. LiquidWeb – Good VPS plans with “heroic support”
  2. Cloudways
  3. DigitalOcean
  4. Rackspace Cloud
  5. FastWebHost
  6. JujuHost

How Did We Pick the Best Hosts for OpenStack?

We’ve reviewed over 380 hosting providers along with 1,500+ hosting plans and selected the ones which meet all the technical requirements for running OpenStack. We then shortlisted the hosts which offer the highest levels of customer service.

Lastly, we used our enormous database of over 1 million words of genuine customer reviews to identify the top 10 hosts for OpenStack.

What is OpenStack?

OpenStack is a system for creating clouds. It provides a single interface to allow the user to distribute computing, storage, and networking over a number of computers.

What is different about OpenStack is that it is an open source solution that allows individuals and groups to create their own clouds.

This is important because in the past, when companies wanted to create their own clouds, they had two choices. Some, like Twitter, built their own clouds. Most, however, chose to use other company’s proprietary clouds. For example, Pinterest uses Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) for all its storage needs.

While Amazon’s cloud computing options make heavy use of Linux, as the rest of the web hosting industry does, OpenStack is completely open source. You’re not stuck with anyone’s service. You can use a public cloud while being able to set up your own private clouds if you want.

You can mix and match different components: computing, storage, networking, whatever you want. It’s like cloud computing Lego.


How to Change PHP Settings in your Hosting Account

How to Change PHP Settings in your Hosting Account

PHP is a scripting language used primarily on the web and is available on our shared, VPS, and Dedicated servers. PHP is highly customizable and has many settings that our users can modify themselves. This article will advise you how to change PHP settings in your php.ini file.

How to view your current PHP settings

To view your current PHP settings, create a PHPinfo page. If you’re not sure how to do this, please see How can I view my PHP settings using a PHPinfo page ?

The steps in updating the values listed in your PHP info page depend on how PHP is setup on your particular server. In general, PHP runs on our servers as either:

  • Apache module
  • CGI Module

To find out how PHP is configured on your server, create a PHP info page (via the above instructions) and look at the “Server API“‘ value. If the “Server API” is CGI“, then PHP is running as “CGI module”. If “Apache” is listed, then your server is running PHP as an “Apache module”.

Server API: Apache

If your server runs PHP as an “Apache module“, you can change your PHP settings via a .htaccess file. A .htaccess file is a configuration file you can create and use to change many server settings, including PHP settings. The basic syntax to use in your .htaccess file for updating PHP settings is:

php_value Directive value

For example, if you wanted to change the max_input_time from 60 seconds to 120 seconds, add the following to your .htaccess file:

php_value max_input_time 120

After making this change, refresh your PHP info page, and you should see the changes. If you receive a 500 error, please double check the syntax you used as you may have made a misspelling.

If you don’t have a .htaccess file, you can simply create a new file named .htaccess. As the .htaccess file begins with a dot (.), it is considered a hidden file. If you are using the cPanel’s File Manager, please be sure to select the option to Show Hidden Files (dotfiles), otherwise you will not be able to see your .htaccess file. If you do not see this prompt when opening your File Manager, click the, “reset all interface settings” link at the bottom of your cPanel to reset your File Manager settings.

Server API: CGI


View of the php.ini in the File Manager

If your server runs PHP as a CGI module, you can change your local php.ini file in order to make modifications to your PHP setup. php.ini is a PHP configuration file with a list of PHP directives and their values. In the above example, we modified the max_input_time value. If you open your php.ini file and search for max_input_time, you should see something similar to:

; Resource Limits ;
 max_execution_time = 30
max_input_time = 60
memory_limit = 256M
upload_max_filesize = 10M

To change the max_input_time from 30 seconds to 120, for example, simply change 30 to 120 and save the file. Refresh your PHP info page, and you should see the changes.

Increasing PHP memory in the php.ini

A common issue when using free open source software or other PHP intensive programs is the “exhausted memory” error. If you have a PHP memory error on your site, you can increase the memory limit PHP uses for the scripts. To learn how to change the memory limit in your php.ini, please see the following link.

Fixing the Allowed memory size exhausted error

Modifying the PHP.INI file

Here is a quick step-by-step tutorial on editing the PHP.INI file.

  1. Login to the cPanel.
  2. File Manager in the cPanel

    Find the File Manager in File section of the Cpanel. Review our tutorial on using the Code Editor within the File manager if you’re looking on information how to use it.

  3. File Manager icons

    Navigate to the directory where you will either save or edit the PHP.INI file and then select the file and use the Code Editor. To open the file, you can click on it to select the file and then click on the Code Editor icon in the menu bar of the File Manager. You can also right-click with your mouse and select Code Editor from the menu that appears.

  4. Edit the section of the PHP.INI that you wish to change.
  5. Click on SAVE CHANGES in the top right hand corner in order to save your modifications or additions to the file.

Common Problems when Updating your php.ini file

I don’t have a php.ini file!

Only users running on a server with PHP loaded as a “CGI module” will have a php.ini file. The php.ini file by default will be located at public_html/php.ini. If you do not see a file named php.ini in your public_html, please contact our Support Department and request that we create one for you.

I made changes to the php.ini file, however I do not see the changes!

The php.ini file is not recursive. Updating your php.ini values in public_html/php.ini will not affect PHP files in subfolders of your public_html, such as public_html/staff. To correct this problem, you can make your php.ini file recursive so that it affects all sub folders. More help on this can be found in How can I make my php.ini file recursive?

Considering a VPS or Dedicated Server?

With a VPS or dedicated server, a site owner can truly customize the server to their exact specification. If you are on a Shared Hosting account, and are thinking about upgrading from to a VPS or dedicated server, click here to read more about a VPS vs dedicated server.
