Thread: Dedicated IP

    Arrow Dedicated IP

    With 3-star and 4-star budget plans (and others including professional and advanced), there is no dedicated IP address. I am wondering what it would cost as a setup fee and/or monthly cost for a dedicated IP address. THANKS!

    For packages that do not come with a dedicated IP addresss they are $2.00/mo paid annually at $24.00

    Though not many sites truely need a dedicated IP address.

    Arrow what about SSH, then?

    Can glowhost provide SSH access without a dedicated IP address then? I've had Hosts require it. I'm looking at the 3,4,5 packages, and want to ballpark the pricing before signup... Thanks for the help, Matt.

    Update: We offer jailshells on shared hosting accounts.

    But Yes if it were your dedicated server or VPS we could grant a full shell on the shared IP, or a dedicated IP of choice.

    Arrow FTP and POP3 over SSL?

    Sorry to keep up with the qestions, Matt, but I still have a few. I'm used to being able to vi and chmod and use a shell. I cannot envision using only Cpanel and FTP to manage my site, so I'm wondering if you allow FTP and POP3 over SSL. Perhaps I can use one of the Rapid SSL certs, and encrpt the traffic as I upload content, etc... Also, along these lines, can I use an SSL-cert to access CPanel?

    Thanks again for answering Qs before the Sale!

    Actually, our cPanel installation is configured to redirect users to the SSL ports so it will use either stunnel or a shared server certificate, in either case the cPanel runs under SSL.

    POP3 yes we also have secure ports that you can connect to mail on.

    As to FTP over SSL, you mean FTPS? We have that enabled as well.

    Also if you notice most ftp'ers have a chmod in there where you can recursively chmod your files as needed. cPanel will unpack your tar files and other functions.

    Arrow Thanks

    Me too. I'm trying to find solutions on this end. The transfer of files can be done via CPanel - you were right. I played with it, and it works (different host). But I cannot find a cpanel utility which allows chmod or other file mods (let alone the CLI tools which are extremely helpful). My main concern is plain-text usernames and passwords used for FTPing... a previous site has been compromised, and I swore I'd never let that happen.

    Thank you for investing time and energy before my being a paying customer.

    Talking Found it !

    Cpanel does allow chmod... so no problem.. everything that needs to be done can be via SSL (except shell scripting, but no problems)... Thanks again, you've been really helpful.

    Yep it does in the file manager though it can be tedious if you need to do a lot of permissions changes. Though in most cases the way we have it setup there should not be that much permission to do outside of what the server sets them at based on how they are created.

    In any case sounds like you have at least that solution going for you. I will play around with getting ftp to run on the SSL/TLS ports and see what options we have there as SFTP sounds like more of a problem that a fix in it's current stage at least with cPanel servers.

    I'd definitely like the ability to mass chmod files using FTP over/under SSL.

    Though its pretty rare you actually get compromised by someone intercepting your packets and grabbing your user and password from them. It's exceptionally difficult I would say for most people even in non encrypted protocols.

    Usually those sort of compromises are due to weak password strength, someone found your password locally, or outdated scripts.

    Did your last host confirm how it happened was by someone with your logins direct?

    Arrow negative

    no, and on top of that, their IP was from .ge leading me to believe they were using a proxy. I wasn't a major problem... someone uploaded porn and changed wording to the main page, making it look stupid... luckily this was not a business site... but I kept backups, and changed the acct pw / re-uploaded old, and began to enc everything.

    I supposed pw strength could have been it, but I'm (more so now) pretty good at choosing combinations of chars most people wouldn't be able to dict-attack.

    Cheers
