Ubuntu Servers :: Buying Domain / Hosting Web Server / All Domain Registers Come With Email Or Just Email Forwarding?
Mar 29, 2010
I am thinking about buying a domain name and hosting my web server.
I have seen pricing from $8 to $30 a year. Any favorites from fellow ubunters? Also this whole "whois" thing scares me, if I am correct my information I enter when buying the domain is enter into some big pool of information. People can find this information out and dig up important information. url Can I prevent this with private Whois or how do I set it up? This website examples some of my fears with this whole WhoIs thing, url whois/Private-Whois.html Does most/all domain registers come with email or just email forwarding or both? How does that work? At this moment, my only question about Web Hosting is how do I get Website Statistics as in: Stats, web analytics, web traffic stats and more? I will be web hosting through Ubuntu 9.10 gnome.
I have a server "test1" in domain [URL]. I installed sendmail on it. I have another mail server "mailsrv" installed in [URL] which is my primary mail server and contains all accounts and mailboxes. Now when I send email to [URL] from [URL] it sends successfully. But when I try to mail to email@example.com it tries to search user1 in [URL] but I want it to forward this mail to mailsrv.abc.com over SMTP port. Delivery will then be taken care by [URL]
My log shows following
Code: Apr 9 18:37:06 test1 sendmail: o39Db6Hs007512: firstname.lastname@example.org, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30047, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (o39Db6Il007513 Message accepted for delivery) It should not go to relay=[127.0.0.1], it should go to relay=[10.10.10.1]
My ISP recently decided to kill outbound traffic on port 25 for some reason. Therefore, I change the SMTP port to 24, everything work fine so far i can send email to local domain and remote. However, i cannot receive Emails from remote domain. i try use online "mail server test services" and all i got is timeout.
I have a slackware machine which has preinstalled the sendmail mail server. For this machine I have given a domain name (I have a static IP), so I'm able to administer my email through the UI of webmin, i.e. I can send and receive emails.
However I would like to use it only as an email server, i.e. what I would like to do is Conecting to it, by using an email client (e.g. Thundirbird) in order to receive and send emails Conecting to it from a web server so a to send new posts etc.
By searching around I found that in order to test the mail server from outside you can use the following series of commands:
After a reboot of my VPS, I keep getting the following error when sending email to my domain (hosted on Google Email). I can send to other email addresses but my own. So it seems like postfix thinks all mydomain.co.nz is to be sent internally?
I'm using Ubuntu Server (32bit) on a machine at home. I've bought a domain name(s) via Heartinternet.co.uk and my ISP is Bethere.co.uk I have installed my LAMP Server on my home based server and it's accessible via my static IP address. HTTP is forwarded on my router to my Ubuntu (web)Server. Now then, in laymen's terms, I want my domain name to resolve to my Ubuntu Server. I have installed and configured Bind9 to this guide found online: http://goo.gl/M3Pk i understand that I need to do this in order to 'host' the domain name. Or alternatively, if my presumptions are correct, I could leave the domain name with the registrar and use their DNS config panel to add an A record to point at my webserver (static IP address)???
If I forward port 53 (default for DNS) to my server (after setting up bind9 correctly) and within my domain name hosting options change the nameserver settings to point at my static ip address then would this be enough to host my domain from my home network?
I feel I nearly have a whole picture but...not quite. There's a multitude of vague guides on the internet (vague or I'm not reading them properly!)
I have set up 10.04 server, got userdir working (/home/username/public_html) so I can access it with h ttp://myipaddress/~username. What do I need to do to get mydomain.com to point to http://myipaddress/~username?
The company I work for, as usual, is Microsoft-centric. I'm attempting to integrate my Ubuntu server into the domain to allow domain users to authenticate to the server and access file shares using Samba. Here's my current configuration:
easier way to forward email, in postfix, from a user to one domain for the user without listing every domain and user name? Example:send all of user joe's email to joe@somewhere, in which there are mulitple domains other than "somewhere".
Usual Given Example- /etc/postfix/virtual: email@example.com joe@somewhere firstname.lastname@example.org jane@somewhere-else
I'm looking for an easier way to forward email, verses having (ex) 50 different lines for 5 users and 10 domains.
I'm trying to figure out how to access the local part and the domain part of an email address in postfix's main.cf. For example, email@example.com has myname as the local part and mydomain.net as the domain part.I get the whole email address with %s. I want to speed up the lookups by writing better database queries.I've had no luck finding this in the otherwise well documented postfix.
I have recently setup a new mail server and have simulated sending and receiving on the new email server. The new email server will replace the primary one.I would like to setup the new email server in parallel with the existing one.This way i can observe issues that might occur and be aware of what could go wrong. I want to received mail to be delivered to both mail servers at the same time.I would like to use postfix, exim i find a bit to difficult to understand.I have thought of using transport maps, the only problem is that you can only forward mail to one server at a time using transport maps.I think recipient_bcc_maps and sender_bcc_maps could work, i would just like ideas of how i can do this.
1. when a mail is sent to an account; if it has a forwarder set; it should forward a copy of email to the mentioned email address.
2. all the emails sent to a domain alias should be automatically forwarded to the respective email account in the main domain.
eg for 1. firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com eg for 2. firstname.lastname@example.org => email@example.com
We have a database that stores the mailboxes as we have our own control panel. I can get only one working at a time. I have the mysql query in the .cf file and mentioned it in the main.cf as 'virtual_alias_maps' but i need both to work not just one at a time.
Just wondering if it's possible to do virtual hosting without a registered domain name. I'm running slackware 13 and just trying to do it like this in my vhost config:192.168.15.149/test1.phpand 192.168.15.149/test2.php
I have an issue with sendmail. I need to configure sendmail to send email from command prompt to any domain. This is just for the notification purpose. I installed sendmail and sendmail-cf and sm-client. The following are the configuration I have done.
I have a server with a static IP that I use as a sendmail server. The problem is that port 25 is exposed. As a result, anybody can login to the SMTP server and send mail from my domain as a user that does not exist as well as email from other non-existant domains. I'm sure there are sendmail options that I can enable to do some checks, like if the user exists on that server or if the domain is the same on the server, etc. I was wondering if you guys can mention a few that I can add to my sendmail.mc file?
I have thought about auth login, the problem is if auth login is on my public port then I won't be able to receive email from gmail because it would be unauthenticated. Also, I only have 1 mail server. I know the ideal solution is to have 2 mail servers. One for outgoing mail/internal mail server where you can enable auth login and the other for incoming mail which just acts as the relay to the internal mail server. That way spammers can't login to send mail out. That's another question I had, how do I configure sendmail to only send email out/in?
Anyhow, so I have to make do with 1 mail server for now. So I decided to add a few rules on iptables. I grabbed the IP range that gmail uses when I receive mail from then and added it to my iptables with the following command.
dammit... all that typing and I hit the wrong "submit" button. *sigh*
Ok, I have a couple of SMTP servers for our infrastructure. They are running Postfix. I have them configured so that specific email addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com all go to a new support server that I am building with osTicket. Lets call that server SUPP1.
SUPP1 runs sendmail from the default install of CentOS 5 i386. At this point everything runs great. New emails get added into the osTicket system via a pipe in sendmail. Here's where the problem comes in. In order to accept mail, sendmail has to have the domain listed in local-host-names and the addresses in virtusertable. That works just dandy. But in doing so, sendmail believes it is the destination SMTP server for "mydomain.com". That means that I can't send mail from that server back into my normal SMTP servers. So things like the LogWatch, cron jobs, etc can't send notifications. Is there a way to work around that? For sendmail to ignore local-host-names for outbound email or something?
In the office there is a local network with samba+openldap PDC. The local domain name is company.net. The company desided to create a corporate Website on a remote hosting and desided that the site's domain should be company.net which is same as local network's domain name. So now it is not possible to reach that corporate website from within the company's local network because, as I guess, bind9 which is installed on above menioned PDC looks for company.net on a local webserver. Is there a possibility to let people from this local network browse the remote site?
i have registered two domain names that i want to use to connect to my ubuntu server. I was wondering how to do this i was looking at bind9 but that didn't work that great. The server is behind a router with firewall i can connect to it using the external IP address but i like to use the two domain names if that is possible.
I've got a home server running Ubuntu Server 9.04 and several machines running Ubuntu Desktop (9.04 and 8.04) and Windows (XP, Vista and 7). Now what I want to do is to create a domain and directory server similar in function to Windows Server w/ AD and join my other machines to the domain, but am not sure where to start. I already have file shares with Samba but now I want to setup a domain.
I have an email setup where all of the emails from our email host is downloaded to our Linux server using Fetchmail. Then some of the incoming emails are sent to an MS exchange server (server1.domain.com) using Postfix. What i want to do is to send a copy of all emails to Another server (server2.domain.com) for redundancy.Can postfix be configured to send copies out to both?
iam using centos5.2.configured qmail,vpopmail. while adding domain form vadddomain<domain.co.in> At first time domain folder get created in domains directory.and also postmaster user also get created by default.And also in mysql. Now the problem is after some times or rebooting system domain get erased automatic.also in /var/qmail/users/assign file domain name get erased.
