This is for those that want the cloud, but not the headaches or IT management and need more security and support.
Built on dedicated, branded servers running VMware, these environments are protected by your dedicated Rackspace firewalls. They are designed to provide you with the best of both Cloud and Managed Hosting. So, the most important benefits of the Cloud-resource and budget optimization with rapid scaling up or down – can be had with the higher security and improved reliability of a Rackspace Managed Hosting Solution.
Our Managed Private Clouds are an even more secure and reliable approach to public Clouds.
And the best part is, you don’t have to invest in or build and manage your own Enterprise class private cloud to make it happen. We make it happen for you from the data center, to the network, to the VMs. All the nonstop work – purchasing the components and licenses, configuring your Private Cloud, patching operating systems and troubleshooting issues whenever they pop up – is taken care of on our end.
All you need to do is decide if one of our three recommended configurations will do the trick for you. Or if you want a built-to-fit solution based on your specific needs, we can do that too. Our around-the-clock Fanatical Support will take care of the rest.
The Smart Way to Scale
- Rapid VM provisioning makes scaling easier.
- Purchase custom configured VMs as you go and pay for them only when they’re turned on.
- Dedicated network and host machines provide added security.
- Automatic recovery keeps your up and running by providing redundancy.
While we like to think the Cloud is for everyone, we do realize it’s not for every use case. Some situations require both the benefits of dedicated hardware and the on-demand, scalability of the cloud. We have debuted a service offering called Cloud Connect, currently in beta, which provides the benefits of both worlds.

Rackspace Cloud: Last week we formally launched Cloud Servers for Windows and opened the doors for new customers. We only released Cloud Servers for Windows after a successful, strenuous beta program that thoroughly tested the product. Over two thousand customers, just like you, provided critical feedback that our developers expertly addressed. This feedback loop ensured that we had the right features in place and allows us to back our Windows offering with an industry leading SLA.
If you’re a .NET developer, small-to-medium sized business, or IT administrator, spinning up new servers takes little time and cost as little as $0.08 per hour. Watch a quick video to see how easy it is to create a Windows Cloud Server.
You can learn more about Cloud Servers for Windows, including pricing information, online at our website.
So you have a tar archive file and you want to know the number of files in it without expanding it. You know the text counter program ‘wc’? You can count the number of lines from the input by:
wc -l file.txt
You know how to list the content (files and directories) of a tar archive?
tar --list example.tar
Now you just combine these two to count the number of lines of the files list of the tar archive:
tar --list example.tar | wc -l
So that you have the number of files in the tar file example.tar. The pipe means relaying the output of the previous command to the next command as input.

This is as interesting as it can get. Does DreamHost actually hire kids in the support team?
Seems to me a bunch of geeky kids started DreamHost back in the 90s. No wonder they are so neatly unique in the web hosting industry, what fascinates a child lasts a lifetime.
A quick tip on how to find out whether your server is running on 64 bit CPUs or 32 bit architecture.
Log in via SSH and simply type:
And it would return something like this:
Linux example.com 22.214.171.124-node22 #2 SMI Tue Aug 11 19:14:36 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
If it’s i686, i586, etc., it’s 32 bit. If it’s x86_64, it’s 64 bit architecture.
Crucial Update: This coupon code as well as the $25 discount promotion will be ended by March 18th, 2010 by Rackspace Cloud. If you are still making up the mind to sign up with them, now is the time.

As I said at one of the forums, if you plan your website to be a hobbyist one or a spamming one, by all means, use any of the cheap shared hosting services out there. It’s unreliable and non-business-worthy but it’s cheap, and subsequently lots of crap sites are hosted there. It will gain you no SEO advantage from an IP point of view and your sites will be down multiple times a week.
If you value your time spent on developing and promoting your website, if you want your online business to grow in a good neighborhood recognizable by Google, if you hate overselling as I do, if you would love a honest undersold host and a clean dedicated server, you should come to Jointly Hosted, the non-profit host dream for friendly and ethical people who deserve a powerful, clean server to host their endeavors.

For disclosure, I will get $5 reward from Dreamhost if you use this code to purchase their hosting services.

If you are just like me who is disgusted of reading through large chunks of texts for the only particular thing that he’s interested, securing Linux can’t be any more straightforward with this exhaustive list written by Kurt Seifried. Specially made for Linux novices who are just starting to harden his servers against malicious attempts, it is a good read not only because it’s useful but also because it’s easy to follow and digest.
Here we go: http://seifried.org/security/os/linux/20020324-securing-linux-step-by-step.html
To check the version date of your OS (Linux distros):
To find out the release:
To display and show the complete kernel signature of your hosting server:
Something like this will output similar information concerning your Linux kernel:
If you haven’t had the uname utility installed, you can get the kernel release version by:
You may also be interested in some other useful things to see within /proc.
How many user accounts are there on your hosting server? You can look up the number of server user accounts by the following command via SSH:
wc -l /etc/passwd
And it may output something like this:
Which means there are a total of 76 active users in the system. However, the actual number of human users of the server should be lower than the amount because there are system users created to carry out certain tasks.
Multiply the amount by 5 and you may get a rough number of websites hosted on your server.
