Chicago Single Server Colocation | Web Hosting Talk

Looking for single server colocation service providers around Chicago, preferably in the downtown area. Been looking online but the search engines just really like the big guys that don’t do single server colocation.

My requirements:

  • Server maxes out around 550W
  • 30TB+
  • /29 IPv4 allocation
  • DDoS protection
  • Network/power/cooling redundancy (at least N+1 preferred)
  • SLA preferred

Requirements can be included in the base cost or can be extra.

Thank you!

Multiple WordPress Management Options | Web Hosting Talk

I have my own WHM managed Linux server, but I manage the websites on the server. I have WP Toolkit installed in WHM, but I have noticed wpCentral (by Softaculous), recently. What I’m trying to figure out is what is the best option? I don’t use Softaculous scripts; I install WordPress using the Toolkit. I only ever use WordPress sites, so I’m didn’t see the benefit of paying for Softaculous.

I can still install with Toolkit and manage with wpCentral, as the free version of Toolkit allows the creation of theme packs. I like that I don’t have to dig to find the sites in wpCentral.

I’m not interested in opinions, but experiences or knowledge of either product or questions that I haven’t thought of.

APAC transit


We are expanding into the APAC region and wondered what to expect from a transit cost perspective? Will Cogent, Telia, etc price that region similar to the states, or is their a premium.

web app – Should my webapp’s tabs use browser tabs or an in-page tab?

That depends on how tabs/pages are related in your application; but speaking of a more general scenario:

Are the tabs related amongst them i.e. different parts of the same information? Or are them different instances of the same page with different information?

In the former, tabs inside the app make sense, while in the latter navigator tabs (or “different windows”) are more like it.

Using your sample image about invoices:

  • If tab1 is product info and tab2 is payment info and tab3 is shipping info, all from invoice F00001, then they should appear as tabs inside the app (UNLESS each tab is a completely different process)
  • If tab1 is info from invoice F00001 and tab2 is info from invoice F00002 and tab3 is info from invoice F00003, they should appear as different pages. It’s up to both the navigator and the user wheter they’ll be grouped as tabs in a window or as separate windows.

But then again, it completely depends on your application and how the information between pages is related.

    Try from a VPN, could be a local issue or call them up to see if they have noticed any issues.

    Does anyone have contact with them? I have had a bunch of paid vps’s suspended and can’t even log into my account to check.

  8. Threads merged, since this seems to be an ongoing issue you’re having. Maybe @pingednet could step in and assist?

    Going out? Wear a mask!

web development – Will QR code in this scenario be able to be implemented?

User registers on the website. Upon registration, the system will generate a QR code for the user. The user then goes to be vaccinated, and upon vaccination, someone will be able to scan his/ her QR code and the status of the user will be updated as vaccinated with the 1st dose of the vaccine. Additional information will also include, the date for the 2nd dose of vaccination, the doctor who was responsible for the vaccination, date and time of the vaccination. The user can also give his feedback for the side effects per dosage.

Most tutorials with QR code scanners are in a mobile application. However, my laptop might not be capable of handling mobile development.

  1. Will the QR code in this scenario be able to be implemented?

  2. What are some packages for this qr code generator and scanner?

  3. If I’ll use reactjs, are there still any npm packages for qr code? From what I’ve researched, some of them were not maintained anymore. Other recommended technologies are open as well.

  4. If perhaps, we could develop the user in a mobile application, would it be more difficult developing in a mobile application or web application? Considering that, I’ve never developed a mobile application. But there are tons of tutorials in YouTube. For a web application, i’ve already developed a online food ordering. However, there were not much tutorials on how to implement the qr code in a web app. The time frame for our project would be only around 3-4 months and also, this QR code scanning and generator will only be a feature. There are still other modules as well.

catalina – Browser web page gets sync’d across different macBooks

I have 2 macBook Pro’s (Catalina and Big Sur) and somehow when I open any web page in Chrome/Brave browser on 1 macBook, it gets synced to the other macBook and a new Chrome icon opens up on the dock. And when I click that, the exact same page what I have opened up in my macBook gets opened on the other macBook.

I checked if the browser has sync enabled but it is not.

Can anyone suggest something I can do to stop the browsers from syncing across the macBooks ?
