Lost Information Caused Unable To Contact The Billing Department My Hosts :p

Recommended Posts

Man I'm just a bit down that my host would go and suspend my domain without telling me. Apparently it automatically suspends a domain once its gone over the bandwidth limit :D and my site which is only a few weeks old went over 10 gigs in 7 days :P I don't get upset easily but when I saw the error I got pretty pissed haha since I was in the middle of doing file edits :P so then once the site came back up parts of the site were all messed up and now I can't access the ftp or cpanel unless I contact the billing department and so and etc :D but the thing is before I can contact billing I need to provide info for the address I was living in when I setup the account as well as the domain name and some other info that I can't remember and some things I don't know since my father set it up and I sort of took over it :D btw it was a reseller account that we used to host our many projects.

I can tell you that I was in the same situation when I started my site. There are many ways that you can do to relieve bandwidth. You can compress before the server sends it out so that you'll use less bandwidth. It's called mod deflate (https://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&safe=off&client=opera&rls=en&hs=cR6&q=mod+deflate&btnG=Search). I haven't been here in quite a while, so I don't remember what Xisto allows. If any admins know if this is allowed, please post here.


If you're hosting pictures, I would suggest using Flickr because it's a lot better than imageshack in my opinion. If you want more unlimited picture hosting, sign up with Flickr's $25/year deal. It'll be worth it in the long run.


If you have a large CSS file, you can compress it here: http://www.cssdrive.com/index.php/main/csscompressor/


You can do the same thing if you have a large Javascript file: http://fmarcia.info/jsmin/test.html


Lastly, check out this Coding Horror blog post. It'll explain more in depth about how to reduce bandwidth. https://blog.codinghorror.com/reducing-your-websites-bandwidth-usage/


By the way, what was the name of your last host?
