11:26<AlexMax>I do see some of those, but not a log entry for EVERY time I see lack of resolution

13:57-!-S_t is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
13:57<S_t>Do u support additional IPv4?
13:57<linbot>Each Linode comes with 1 public IPv4 address and 1 public IPv6 address. Additional IPv4 addresses are $ 1 per month, and require technical justification. A /64 or /56 of IPv6 can be routed to your Linode at no charge.
13:58<S_t>Additional IPv4 addresses are $ 1 per month. Sounds good. What about max IP's ?
14:00<Peng_>There's a limit, but it's pretty high.
14:00<Peng_>What do you need them for?
14:01<S_t>Where I can read about US hardware?
14:01<Peng_>What do you mean?
14:02<S_t>model of CPU
14:02<S_t> use Intel Skylake for packages starting from $10
14:32-!-S_t [~oftc-webi@] has quit [Quit: Page closed]
14:39<LouWestin>I know he left, but is that processor better than what Linode is running?
14:43<LouWestin>The link doesn’t really say anything but it’s better than broadwell.
14:44<relidy>"Better" is rather relative.
14:45<LouWestin>Right, right.
14:45<Peng_>Who knows? You could get whatever the slowest model Skylake is and then overload it.
14:45<LouWestin>I mean the numbers comparing one to another doesn’t really anything to me.
14:46<Peng_>"Who knows?" People who use Linode and Vultr a lot probably. :P
14:47<LouWestin>20% better doesn’t really tell me anything. 20% of a dollar is .20 cents. 🙄

14:50<nate>There's also the situation where for what anyone knows, vultr's running desktop variant skylake's instead of xeons :P
14:51<LouWestin>That’s exactly what came to my mind! LOL
14:55<LouWestin>They also mention a 17 ping rate... K...they’d have to have a DC in Chicago for me to possibly get that.
14:56<Peng_>They do actually
14:58<LouWestin>Ok. I didn’t see a list.
14:58<Peng_>Welcome to #linode where Peng_ advertises Vultr
15:01<LouWestin>Ok let me ask you this... Is their control panel better than Linode’s?

15:03<Peng_>Omg it's so much --
15:03<Peng_>I don't know
15:05<Peng_>I've never used Vultr
15:07<DrJ>got to love how some people try to mask their spam by asking a question
15:08<LouWestin>For example, If had compare InMotion’s control panel to Linode. It’s like comparing an old Big wheel to a corvette. But the price isn’t much different.
15:08<Peng_>DrJ: You think that was it? Whoa
15:08<LouWestin>Linode is the corvette.
15:10<LouWestin>I’m just asking because a few tire kickers come in here and say so n’ so host is offering VPS for free, what is linode offering!? And then they leave 10 seconds later.
15:11<LouWestin>Maybe they’re competitors from the marketing department.
15:12<DrJ>I think that's exactly what it is in cases like that
15:14-!-ArchNoob [] has joined #linode
15:14-!-ArchNoob is "ArchNoob" on #linode #moocows
15:15<Peng_>Under the circumstances I'm uncomfortable saying anything complimentary, but surely the host at issue this time is big enough they don't have to be so sleazy
15:17<LouWestin>Agreed. And honestly I really don’t care since we’re talking about a $1-2 difference a month or the same price and MAYBE a small performance boost.
15:17<LouWestin>I’m not twisting your arm for an answer. lol
15:19<LouWestin>Or the hosting is $2 cheaper elsewhere, but their backups run $10 a month.
15:21<LouWestin>I used to get a couple clients whom would say something like I can get a wix site for x amount a month instead of paying you for custom design.
15:21<LouWestin>And I’d say, would you like me to help sign you up?
15:22<Peng_>One day you're going to get replaced by a computer. D;
15:26<LouWestin>Hey I got replaced YEARS ago by designers who probably got ripped off and my client’s family members. LOL!!!
15:26<LouWestin>My son, cousin, etc. knows how to do that stuff!
15:27<DrJ>I wouldn't put it past a company being too big to still be involved in sleasy marketing efforts
15:27<LouWestin>Me? Ok.
15:27<DrJ>one word: comodo
15:27<LouWestin>DrJ: Oh yeah... I’d place bets on that too.
15:28<DrJ>the company that tries to trick you into thinking you need to renew your domain with them via cold calls
15:28<DrJ>eh, cert, not domain
15:28<DrJ>it got worse when I first switched to lets encrypt with them
15:29<DrJ>due to the 90 day expire time I started getting calls non stop from them
15:31<LouWestin>When I first got a SSL I think I went with Comodo’s off brand. SSL’s or something.
15:33<DrJ>LouWestin, they crawled the interwebs building a database of when certs expire and if you did not use private registration on your domain they would then cold call you when it was around 60 days out
15:33<LouWestin>I didn’t have any issues, but I didn’t end up renewing either.
15:33<DrJ>they would try to trick you into thinking your current cert was with them and get you to renew over the phone
15:35<DrJ>when I switched to lets encrypt my domains were almost always 60ish days to the expire date
15:35<DrJ>so they were calling every day basically
15:35<LouWestin>Wow! They didn’t call me. But I think you couldn’t have a private registration either.
15:35<DrJ>I actually had to explain to one of the callers once what LE was and that it was free
15:35<DrJ>he told me anyone offering certs for free would severaly compromise the security of my web site or so BS along that line
15:36<LouWestin>It was SSL’s. Maybe they’re under name cheap. Not sure now.
15:37<DrJ>they did eventually stop. I think they figured out what LE was and knew people using that wouldn't fall for it
15:37<LouWestin>I’m using LE now.
15:37<LouWestin>Oh wait... you know that already
15:37<DrJ>yea, I did
15:38<LouWestin>And then Porkbun offers free private registration so there ya go.
15:38<DrJ>point being though, large companies are not always above low life marketing efforts such as misleading cold calls or even spamming an IRC channel
15:39<DrJ>my domains are with namecheap, they now offer free private ever since the GRDP thing went into effect
15:40<LouWestin>Godaddy kept sending me emails about getting a domain registered in my legal name. 🙄
15:41<LouWestin>I took Peng_ ‘s advice on Pork bun
15:41<DrJ>haven't heard of them
15:42<LouWestin>The nice thing is, the money I spent at Godaddy didn’t go to waste when I switched. They added an extra year.
15:42<Peng_>It was only half my advice
15:43<LouWestin>I apologize, I forget what the other half was.
15:44<LouWestin>Oh wait. Read that wrong
15:44<LouWestin>I know there was another person.
15:44<LouWestin>I apologize that I’ve forgotten who that was too.
15:44<Peng_><millisa> I have a very pro-ham agenda
15:44<ArchNoob>Hello everyone!
15:45<LouWestin>K. I took a couple programming classes and quit. That’s proof it was a good choice.

15:47-!-Dreamer3_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:47<ArchNoob>I have a question. Can I use one linode as a mail server and another one for database and web servers? Is that normal? With multiple domains that use both Linodes for their specific purpose?
15:48<frailtyy>Yeah. Service separation is better than having a ton of stuff on one clunky configuration.
15:49<DrJ>yea ArchNoob, that's actually the best way to do it
15:49<DrJ>might cost more, but if that's not an issue then g2g
15:50<LouWestin>The control panel makes it easy to keep track of multiple VMs too.
15:50<ArchNoob>Thats nice!
15:50<LouWestin>You could create categories like databases, web, mail.
15:50<ArchNoob>I've been thinking of implementing such a setup.
15:51<LouWestin>What’s nice is the hourly pay rate.
15:51<LouWestin>You could fire up a test server and only pay for say 1 hour.
15:52<ArchNoob>LouWestin: Nice nice..
15:52<LouWestin>I do it a lot. lol
15:52<ArchNoob>Is there an article for such configurations?
15:53<LouWestin>There’s guides for web servers. I haven’t played with mail or anything big with DBs.
15:54<LouWestin>So I don’t have experience with mail servers.
15:54<ArchNoob>Ooh, but I will surely like to share my findings then.
15:55<LouWestin>The chat census says mail servers are complicated and better left to third party services.
15:55<ArchNoob>Been thinking about it for a while. Things look really weird all in one place.

15:56<LouWestin>There’s probably a linode guide on mail, but I’ve never dived into mail.
15:56<ArchNoob>LouWestin: Yep, but I have been working with them for a while since my last question here about postfixadmin & dovecot blah blah..
15:56<ArchNoob>and I'm alright so far so no problems.. :-)
15:57-!-Dreamer3 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:57<LouWestin>I run Wordpress and Minecraft. Others here are FAR more advanced.
15:58<ArchNoob>I've... I've never played minecraft. :-(
16:05<LouWestin>Setting up a server is actually easier than a web server.
16:07<ArchNoob>am stuck at configuring DNS records for multiple Linodes.

16:19<ArchNoob>It was asked here (4 years ago) with no answer:
16:19<LouWestin>Ah... enter in your domain names with their IP address.
16:20<LouWestin>Looking now
16:22<ArchNoob>I just came across this,
16:23<LouWestin>It mentions the DNS part.
16:30<LouWestin>And then you can add A records if need be.
16:33<ArchNoob>I already have A records in place for multiple websites.
16:33<ArchNoob>but they only point to one Linode and was looking for a solution to change the DNS records to point to more than one server
16:34<ArchNoob>I've found a few solutions, but it's really late here. :-)
16:34<ArchNoob>Goodnight all and thanks everyone!

20:35<shawnz>hello, I use linode before. it is very fast. but I am not familar on linux system. to setup https and email server is hard for me. so I quit account. I am sorry.
20:37<shawnz>I wonder to know does your compay with install service and how much for install https and email server.
20:39<shawnz>in the last time I use linode cloud server because I could not install email server. so I could not have the same domain email address to active me SSL.
20:39<shawnz>that is the reason I quit the account.
20:41<shawnz>so I want to know do you have the service to install https for customer?
