How Much Space Do You Require From Your Host?

For many webmasters, the amount of space they need is a major trouble. Many people don’t know how much space is sufficient for their website. Space, which is also referred as web space, is the amount of data which you can host on the web hosting plan you are provided. If you have a limit on your hosting plan, you will need to stay within the limit. The amount of space you have available is taken up by website files, which are used to display your website. This includes html files, images and multimedia files. Some people don’t know the other dozen things that your space can be made up of. Website backups, log files, FrontPage extensions, design files and scripts all take up the amount of space you have available. Below are the details of the things your allocated space can be composed of.
1.Website Backups: A web hosting plan will have a control panel, from which you control everything associated with your hosting plan. In your control panel, there is an option to create backups. These backups can be created only when you want to, or at specific times which you request. If you configure your backup system to create backups every day, it will do just that. This will consume a lot of space, especially if your website is composed of many large files.
2.Log Files: Log files are like reports which show details about all the visitors that came to your website. All the requests made by the users will be dumped onto the log files.
3.FrontPage Extensions: FrontPage is a site building software run by Microsoft, which is available to many users of shared hosting. Each time your website is accessed, your FrontPage scripts are retrieved. The scripts and files are all stored on the server, which take up space. Your account will only take up space, if you have created your website on FrontPage. For best deals hosting then check DigitalOcean Black Friday Hosting.
4.Emails: If you have emails configured with your hosting account, it will consume space. You do have the option to limit the amount of space allocated for emails. When you create emails on your account, the control panel will ask you to mention the amount of space you wish to allocate for emails. If you do not set a specific amount, your emails will take up as much space as it needs. When you receive large files by email, it will remain hosted on your server until you delete them.
5.Script Files: The PHP and CGI files which make a particular script or website work will need space as well. These files do not generally take up much room, but they can add up in the long term.
6.Databases: MySQL databases store information such as users, passwords, emails, payment preferences, bio’s and more. The information is sometimes encrypted for security purposes, and is only visible to specific users on the system. Databases can be small for small sites and quite large for the bigger websites. For websites that need a database in the backend, it is important to find a host with sufficient amount of space.

Word on the internet is Lulzsec got scared and went into hiding….

Recent developments from the twitterverse:

th3j35t3r release information about Lulzsec’s web server, apparently it had open ports:

LulzSec has gained the ire of many people through the past 50 days. When you target servers of game companies for no practical reason, it’s bound to attract the attention of other savvy hackers. In this case, it was hacker group “TeaMp0isoN”.

A supposed Dutch member of LulzSec had his personal webpage hacked by TeaMp0isoN. The site is down at the moment, but a message was posted before the plugged was pulled:

“Stop telling yourself that u are hackers, putting a ip into a irc is NOT hacking nor is using pre-made tools and scripts to grab databases,” the statement read. “You do not represent the anti-sec movement, u are not allowed to greet underground groups like zf0, ab, h0n0, el8 like your member ‘AnonSabu’ was doing, you will never be apart of the underground scene, if anyone thinks you are underground and can actually hack they have no idea about what happens in the underground scene.”

Threats were made to post personal information of members of LulzSec. This includes names, photos, phone numbers, IP addresses, etc. Essentially, it’s all the information anyone would need to track them down. TeaMp0isoN made the following statement after supposedly hacking LulzSec:

No matter how many bots you gather, no matter how much people you lie to, no matter how much pre-made tools you use, you will NEVER represent the real hacking scene, we warned you, we told you we do not make empty threats, we gave u 48hrs to secure your ircs yet u failed to do so, instead u posted hashes from public forums and then claimed you doxed us and laughed at the fact that i was 17years old. stop telling yourself that u are hackers, putting a ip into a irc is NOT hacking nor is using pre-made tools and scripts to grab databases… you do not represent the anti-sec movement, u are not allowed to greet underground groups like zf0, ab, h0n0, el8 like your member “AnonSabu” was doing, you will never be apart of the underground scene, if anyone thinks you are underground and can actually hack they have no idea about what happens in the underground scene. oh and TeaMp0isoN Issue 2 is coming out VERY soon exposing lulzsec members (pictures, addresses, passwords, ips, phone numbers etc). . . . not so anonymous anymore are you? lets hope that you can swim because the lulzboat just got titanic’d.

It’s hard to tell if statements like this are true, or it’s just some false, internet chest-beating. However, recent developments within LulzSec might lend credence to TeaMp0isoN accomplishing what they stated. It seems LulzSec is “retiring” as it were. The LulzSec name is being abandoned, and the members will go their separate ways, perhaps into another group under another name. The group’s farewell statement mentions a “planned 50 day cruise”, but it’s hard to believe they only wanted to exist for 50 days. The coincidence of being supposedly hacked, and then breaking up shortly after is too hard to ignore. There was even a supposed Monday release planned, as mentioned in their Twitter. Either way, the group has released their last collection of hacked documents which includes things from AOL, the FBI, and personal investigators.

The Lulz Ship has set sail permanently, but there’s always other ships in the harbor.

Personal info about every Lulzsec member released except for two

Internet hacker group The A Team hacks the fuck out of Lulzsec, releases dox info on most of Lulzsec.

What’s funny to us is that these kids are all “Anti-Sec” yet by releasing their hacks they are forcing these
companies to have to hire security professionals which keeps the Security Industry that they are trying to
expose and shut down, in business. I guess they will realise that later in life when they get out of skid
school.

So we’ve been tracking and infiltrating these kids since the gawker hack. We have the D0x (as they call it)
on everyone except Sabu and Kayla. First we’ll go with the kid who did the gawker hack: Uncommon.

Examples of the doxing info includes:

Now let’s look at EE or EEKDACAT:

How to find EEKDACAT:

EE Uses those Busy Box Bounces that were dropped in the lulzsec/gn0sis private channel logs (which were leaked).

bounce: 89-38-2-102.tcnet.com.br (189.38.2.102) Hacked Busy Box IP (from Nigg).

We back hacked him all the way back to his Home IP in Sartoga NY.

originating ip: 74.67.45.11 cpe-74-67-45-11.nycap.res.rr.com (saratoga ny)

Now this kid actually hacks stuff. He goes around and does his little google query hacking thing. Fing’s his SQLinjections
He then goes and downloads the databases. This is the kid who helped Uncommon with the attack on Gawker.

Here is a big log of all the things he’s hacked and is hacking. Along with proof that he was using a stolen router (which we back hacked him from).
