Add A Script in CPanel

Add Files In CPanel

Sometimes, you need to add a script to perform a special operation on your websites. The script or files have to be added into the correct place in your files / folders on CPanel.

  1. Open CPanel and open the file manager (see picture 1)
  2. In the file manager, find the correct domain name for the domain you want to add the special operation to. If you are using the main domain then add straight into the Public_Html folder (see picture 2 )
  3. If you are adding the files to an addon domain, then find the relevant domain name in public_html and add the two files in there (see Picture 3).

What Is An IP Address On The Internet?

An IP Address

Most computer users know that they have an IP address but have only a pale understanding of how these addresses are created and how they work. To simplify things for those who don’t speak computerese, IP addresses are often compared to physical mailboxes. While that’s true in a very general sense, IP addresses on the Internet are more refined than that.

The Basics

IP stands for Internet Protocol. These are rules that are part of the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol that facilitate action and activities on the Internet. IP addresses uniquely identify the source of a command or communication as well as the destination location. This information is vital for two way communication. And it means that YOUR COMPUTER, out of several that may be in the same building or even the same room, can be uniquely identified. This is important because, for example, if you are searching for information on the internet, the information will be returned to YOUR computer not to other computers or devices that may be near by.

Address Format

Every IP address on the World Wide Web is set up using the exact same format. Addresses consist of numbers and dots. There are four sets of numbers separated by a single dot. Each of those numbers will be one to three digits long.

IP Addresses are assigned to your computer by your Internet provider, a WAN (Wide Area Network) or within larger businesses using a LAN, or Local Area Network, by the network administrator. In general, this address is assigned to your computer for the length of time that you are logged in and using the Internet. Once the session ends, that address may be assigned to another user within the network.

IP Address Standards

There are currently two different types of IP Addresses. The older type, the IPv4, is supported all over the web. These short addresses contain four bytes of data. The newer IPv6 contains 16 bytes of data and is currently being adopted primarily to create room for more computers on the increasingly crowed web.

How Are Addresses Assigned?

The IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) is responsible for the pool of available IP addresses. This authority distributes large blocks of numbers to many different RIRs (Regional Internet Registries). Currently, there are five RIRs in the world and each is governed by rules set up by the regions that they cover. That’s why the rules for distributing IP addresses may be different in Europe and in the Asia Pacific regions.

While most people think in terms of geography, the rules for handing out IP addresses don’t take the physical nature of the world into consideration. Instead, it is the topology of the Internet that matters. In regions where more Internet use is detected along with a higher need for addresses, more IP addresses are made available. Each region works out plans to ensure that distribution remains equitable.

What Is Your IP Address?

It’s not very hard to find out what your IP Address is. Simple head to Google and type the question in. Your address will be the first result. There are also websites available, in case you want a second opinion.

Without IP addresses, the Internet wouldn’t work very well. While most are dynamic as talked about above, some addresses are static. However, no matter which type you have, your address will always consist of numbers and dots that uniquely identify your computer.

What Is A VPN?

Virtual Private Network Explained

VPN stands for the term Virtual Private Network. It is commonly used by companies to offer remote access to their own workers to keep secure their organizational network. For example, you may be working from home and you need access to files on your office computer or you need to connect to programs or applications that are only available through your office network. If your office has a virtual private network installed and your computer or laptop is configured to connect to this VPN, then you can access what you need from the office without worrying about the data’s security when transported through the internet and without physically going into the office to get those files or use that program. This is totally different from a VPS (Virtual Private Server).

Virtual Private Networks are also used to hide the IP address of an individual’s computer while browsing the internet. This allows you to surf the internet anonymously or even access location-restricted services such as internet TV or bypass local internet restrictions.

VPN Account

If you are looking for your own VPN, as opposed to using one provided through your workplace, you probably need it for the second use, that is, accessing internet TV. There are virtual private network services offered over the internet. Some are free and others come at a fee. The free ones are good, but they cannot guarantee you total security. So, the paid ones are better and they go for as cheap as $5 per month. If you wish to get total anonymity, then a premium VPN account is what you should go for. Most of the VPN providers make it as easy for the user as possible- no software to install, no IP number configuration and easy instructions to follow. If you choose a premium VPN account, it means additional features such as added encryption to the data you send to websites, a dedicated IP address, and a choice of server locations.

What Will You Use It For?

That said, you should decide on how you are going to use a VPN before subscribing to any service: is it for just browsing? Is it for downloading torrents? Watching TV? Each VPN service provider will have its own terms and conditions and some will have restrictions against certain activities like P2P file sharing of intellectual property (that is, stealing someone else’s copyrighted property). It is, therefore , best to look and read the fine print before you commit to any service.

Another tip is to go with providers who offer trial periods. This shows that they have confidence in their services and you will be able to judge whether the service works for you or not. Also check the internet speed. Is it reliable or is there downtime at certain times of the day? You need to assess the support system as well. Note how long they take before they respond to your questions, how well they understand your questions and if they actually help. You simply need to know whether the service is worth the cost.

Looking For Help On VPNs Ahead Of Time

Online forums are good sources of feedback on certain virtual private network services providers. Testimonials are good, but there is hardly ever anything negative with them. However, if you read online forums, you will be able to know the good and the bad of the VPN service provider you are considering. If there is just too much negative feedback on a particular provider, then you should look for one that won’t disappoint you. Online forums can save you a great deal of time when it comes to choosing a VPN service provider.
