Web hosting

World4You offers a variety of practical web hosting packages that allow you to go online within minutes. In this section, you will find the most important questions and answers about webhosting and webspace.

 

  • Webspace, or web hosting, describes a storage space for files on a server, which can be permanently accessed via the Internet.

     

    World4You offers webspace in the form of various packages within the Domainserver product family.

  • In order to publish a website on the Internet, you need web hosting – or as we call it – a Domainserver. As a hosting provider, we provide you with a technical infrastructure. This will allow you to upload your content (websites, images, videos) so they can be permanently retrieved from the internet.

     

    Our servers are powerful and always online thanks to redundant storage. You do not have to operate your own server. With a World4You hosting, you get a complete package that will cover all requirements.

  • In order to transfer an existing domain to World4You, you have to specify that domain during your domain check on world4you.com. Once you complete the order process, we can collect your data and you will immediately have access to the World4You services.

     

    At the same time the domain transfer is started. You usually have to confirm this via email. In addition, our domain team will contact you. Some domains require an Auth Code for the transfer which you receive from your former provider. If you have any questions about the transfer, our support team is of course always available to assist you during this process.

  • A subdomain is subordinate to a main domain. You can recognise a subdomain by the fact that it is always in front of the domain name (separated by a dot). Here's an example:
    Domain
    www.beispielwebsite.at
    Subdomains (subordinate)
    shop.beispielwebsite.at
    subdomain.beispielwebsite.at
    w4y.beispielwebsite.at

    There are two ways to create a subdomain.

    If you would like to refer the subdomain to your webspace, you can create the subdomain at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Subdomains with the corresponding destination. This is where you enter the name and the destination of the subdomain. The directory is automatically created on your webspace. The contents of this directory can be called after a short time by entering the new subdomain in the browser window (examples: shop.beispielwebsite.at or subdomain.beispielwebsite.at).

     

    If you want to link your subdomain externally, you can do this in DNS management at my.world4you.com under Domains > DNS. Here you can you set up your desired subdomain and refer to external content with the A or CNAME records (example: w4y.beispielwebsite.at).

  • The main domain normally points to the main directory. You can, however, forward your domain to a subdirectory via the .htaccess file. In order to do that, create a file with the name .htaccess and insert the following content:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^$ /subfolder [L]
    To copy, press Ctrl + C
    Copied to clipboard
    This will redirect the domain to the subdirectory.

  • There are two ways to include a favicon in a page:

     

    1. Upload a favicon.ico file to the root directory of the domain, for example at http://www.beispielwebsite.at/favicon.ico.
    2. Reference a file via an HTML element, which is integrated in the head data (<head>) of an HTML page. According to the HTML standard, this is a link with two relationships: shortcut and icon. In many browsers it is enough to specify only icon and not shortcut. The following code would be used for the domain name www.examplewebsite.at
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://www.beispielwebsite.at/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">
    <link rel="icon" href="http://www.beispielwebsite.at/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon">

  • If instead of your desired images only a frame with a red cross is displayed, that can have two common reasons:

     

    • The image link is not correct. In this case, pay attention to the correct path. The HTML code is case-sensitive.
    • The image was linked, but not uploaded to the webspace. In this case, upload the image and then test the site again.

  • This article is about the following error message. The one you see may be slightly different:

     

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 20971520 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32 bytes) in /home/....../web/t3lib/class.t3lib_div.php on line 2285

     

    Some templates, for example TemplaVoila for Typo3, have an above-average PHP memory limit. You can increase it for free by 25% at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Settings. If this increase is not sufficient, we recommend upgrading to a more powerful Domainserver package under Webspace > Package Change.

  • A meta tag generator is an online service that generates and provides meta tags. Our meta tag generator can be found at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Meta-Tag Generator.

     

    Meta tags are a way of describing the site content in the HTML code at the top of the page. Words that appear there - especially among the keywords - are preferably indexed by search engines. When the user enters a term in a search engine in search of certain information, he is shown all the websites on this topic that the search engine "knows". Search engines derive their "knowledge" in part from the meta tags as well as the texts of the website itself. With carefully selected keywords, a website can be search engine optimised.

     

    However, if you use third-party trademarks or licensed names - for example, to direct internet users looking for products from competitors onto their own website - this can lead to legal problems. Therefore, names, companies and brands without reference to their own page content should not be used in the meta tags. The meta tags are in the head of an HTML page and offer various (invisible to the user) information, such as:

    <meta name="meinehomepage" content="Here is the program that created the page">
    <title>Here is the title of the page</title>
    <meta name="author" content="Name of the website administrator">
    <meta name="description" content="Here is a brief description of the site content">
    <meta name="keywords" content="Here are selected keywords that could serve as search words for the page content">
    To copy, press Ctrl + C
    Copied to clipboard
    Meta tags can be found by taking a look at the page source code of the corresponding website.

  • At World4You, you can use directory protection to protect your subfolders or subdirectories with a user query. When the protected area is opened, a command prompt opens where user name and password must be entered in order to access the directory. Of course, search engines do not have access to the corresponding directory.

     

    You can create user names at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Directory Protection. An example of such directory protection can be found at https://www.beispielwebsite.at/secure.

  • The .htaccess configuration file allows you to block IP addresses that are not supposed to access specific parts of your homepage. Create a file named .htaccess with the following content using a text editor, such as Notepad:
    # Description: IP lock
    order deny,allow
    deny from 123.456.789.9
    allow from all
    To copy, press Ctrl + C
    Copied to clipboard
    In our example, the 123.456.789.9 is blocked for access. As soon as you place this file in your root directory or in a subdirectory, the content is protected against access by the blocked IP.

  • Statistics can be accessed by attaching /stats to your domain (e.g., beispielwebsite.at/stats) . Here is a brief explanation of the terms of the statistics:

     

    Hits

    A hit is a single request from a browser to a web server. This can be an HTML file, but also a single image or a sound file. If a website contains several images and text, each of these elements generates a hit when the page is called up. The number of hits is therefore not an accurate indicator of the number of visitors to a website and not as an overall site success review.

    Files

    Files may include data in the form of text, images or otherwise. Files can have different formats. To know what it is, there is an appendix (.doc, .gif, .txt) at the end of the filename. The format depends on the structure of the data, because the different programs use different file structures. There is also a difference between the normal and the executable files. Normal files can only be processed or rendered. These are for example .txt and .gif files. The executables (.exe, .bat) contain commands for the machine.

     

    There are also files that combine both types. The .doc file, for example, may contain executable macros.

    The operating system independently stores specific information about each file. These are available in Windows by right-clicking on the file and then selecting Properties from the appearing menu. In the window that opens, you can see when the file was created, when it was last modified, hidden, etc. The term file is also commonly used in URLs (for example, file:/// ...). If such a URL appears in the address bar of the browser, you are not looking at a document on the Internet, but a file on the computer.

    Pages

    This is the number of pages.

    Visits

    Visits are the most significant indicator. The number of visits tells us how many times a page has been visited. A visit counts the page access of a browser, which takes place from outside the relevant website. A usage process only counts as a new visit after the IVW procedure if there is a break of at least 60 seconds between the last and the current external page request.

At my.world4you.com under Webspace > Database, you can purchase an InnoDB database and add it to your Domainserver package. Alternatively, you can perform the installation with a SQLite database.
    • Errors may also occur if you have activated PageSpeed (mod_pagespeed) on your Domainserver. To prevent errors with PageSpeed and OwnCloud, you must disable this module.
    • In the .htaccess file, the Options command was not commented out with a hashtag symbol ("#"). In this particular case, you have to comment it out manually.

  • Please note that OwnCloud is a third-party product and therefore World4You can not provide support. If you still want to install OwnCloud, please follow the steps below.

     

    1. Download OwnCloud

    To download OwnCloud, visit the official OwnCloud website. A website similar to the one in the image below will open. You can continue by clicking on Download.

    Then select Download ownCloud Server.

    After you have clicked on Download, an overlay will open showing the latest OwnCloud version. In principle, it is recommended to always download the latest stable version (the highest number). To start the download, click on zip.

     

    Always use the latest version of OwnCloud. If you are using an older version or the OwnCloud web installer, you may experience problems with PHP 7. OwnCloud is compatible with PHP 7 as of version 8.2.4 / 9.0.2.

    2. Unzip and upload the zip

    After the download is complete, you can unzip the zip file and then upload the files to your webspace.

     

    3. Modify the .htaccess file

    The next step is to modify the .htaccess file. To do this, locate the .htaccess file in the OwnCloud folder and edit it by clicking Edit.

    For security reasons, Options is not permitted at World4You. Therefore, the two entries in the .htaccess file must be commented out manually. To do this, open the .htaccess file in the OwnCloud folder and search - in the file usually a little further down - for the line that starts with Options. Then insert a hash (#) before this command and save the modified file.

    Once these changes are made, you can install OwnCloud.

     

    OwnCloud checks for changes to the code and informs the user about it. Since we manually adjusted the .htaccess file for you, OwnCloud will display the following information message after logging in: There were problems with the code integrity check.

    4. Login and specify database options

    The default is OwnCloud with SQLite installed. This option is useful for small OwnCloud installations with few files. Please enter username and password for your cloud (sent to you by email) and create a new database at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Database. An email with the access data to the database will be sent to you immediately. Click on Storage & database, select SQLite and enter the data from the email.

    If you plan to save large quantities of data, you should continue with the installation on MySQL. To show the MySQL option, click on Storage & Database, switch to the tab MySQL/MariaDB. Once you have done that, you can enter the data of the MySQL server.

     

    If you want to install OwnCloud with MySQL, you need the InnoDB storage engine. An installation of OwnCloud with the storage engine MyISAM is technically not possible. You can purchase an InnoDB database at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Database and add it to your Domainserver package. Alternatively, you can perform the installation with a SQLite database.

  • You can retrieve your error logs at any time at my.world4you.com under  Webspace > Settings > Error Logs.

     

    On the error pages for the error codes 401, 403, 404 and 500, the website visitor will find solutions to the problem on the user side. Below are solutions for administrators.

     

    401 Unauthorized

     

    The website visitor receives this error message if they want to access a protected area of the website. The server can not confirm the authentication, because incorrect access data was specified or the user aborted the process.

     

    In general, this problem is likely caused by the visitor. If necessary, refer your visitors to the solution notes under the corresponding error message.

     

    403 Forbidden

     

    The website visitor receives this error message if he has no authorisation to access the website he has selected. This may be a setting you've made as an administrator. If this is not supposed to happen, there could be a problem with your website. Here are some problem descriptions and possible solutions:

     

    • You have no index.htm, index.html or index.php on your webspace.

  • To request a new password for your customer account, first open the login screen at my.world4you.com. Then click on Forgot your login?

    • Customer ID: an 8-digit number, starting with 5
    • Bill number: an 8-digit number, starting with 9
    • Package number: an 8-digit number, starting with 3
    • Domain name: the name of a domain that runs under the account for which you want to request the password.

     

    Once you have entered the information you need, click Send login information.

    The contact email address you have provided will then receive an email with a temporary link. Click that link to set a new password.
    This is a temporary link, which is only valid for 24 hours. If the link has not been used within these 24 hours, a new email must be requested. This email can only be requested once a day. If an error has occurred and you need another password link on the same day, please contact our support team by filling out this online form or via phone by calling +43732/93035.

    In the new window you can now set a new password. Click Generate Password to create an automatically generated password. You can also set your own password. Please note that the password must meet the following requirements:

     

    • There is a minimum length of 7 characters.
    • It must contain numbers and / or special characters. The system accepts the special characters: +=$@#!*-

     

    The password must be re-entered to make sure that the desired password has been used and that no typing mistakes have occurred. Now click Save to save your new password.

    As soon as you have clicked on the link, the password is active immediately. You will then receive an email confirming that you have successfully entered your new password. After that, you can access your account at my.world4you.com using your customer ID as the user and the newly set password.
    If you have not received an email, it may be that the email with the password link has landed in your spam/junk/advertising folder. If you can't find your email, it could be that the address you've given us is no longer in use or unavailable. Our recommendation: Set an alternative email address. You will find the corresponding contact data form here. You can then send the completed form to office@world4you.com.

  • You can connect your multidomain to a subfolder of the main webspace or to the root directory.

     

    If an installation for your DomainOnly has been made in a subfolder, the corresponding path can be specified during the multidomain assignment (www.beispielwebsite.at/beispielordner). If you want to point to the root directory, leave the slash symbol "/".

     

    During multidomain assignment, all created mailboxes of the main domain receive an alias for the newly assigned domains.

     

    For example: hello@beispielwebsite.at is the mailbox of your domain beispielwebsite.at. At the same time you have activated beispielhomepage.at. This means that you can be reached via hello@beispielwebsite.at and hello@beispielhomepage.at. However, the administration and sending of emails is only possible from hello@beispielwebsite.at.

     

    If you need a complete mailbox to send emails from your new domain (in this case, beispielhomepage.at), you will need to purchase a Domainserver package. A Domainserver package already includes its own email server.

Database
  • A database is a system for electronic data management. Its main role is to provide efficient, permanent and conflict-free storage for large data volumes as well as to make necessary subsets of data available to users and application programs in different, requirement-based formats.

     

    Databases are required for most websites. High performance of database systems is essential to ensure quick website loading times.

  • World4You uses the standardized mySQL database format myISAM (My Indexed Sequential Access Method). myISAM is characterised by high efficiency compared to other table types supported by mySQL and supports a powerful full-text search.

     

    InnoDB databases are optionally available and can be activated directly at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Database.

  • If you have problems with referential integrity (foreign key) or with transaction security, looking at the database engine can be helpful. There are differences between the popular database engines MyISAM and InnoDB.

     

    MyISAM is perfect for large databases where there are many read operations and very few write operations. The technical term for such an area of application is data warehousing. The advantage of this is that a MyISAM database provides fast results in reading operations and can handle extremely large amounts of data very well. The downside: Foreign keys and transactions are not supported. Commands like on update cascade, on delete cascade or begin transaction cannot be used, they will be ignored.

     

    This is possible with the InnoDB database. If you do not want to do without the features mentioned above in your web application, you must select an InnoDB database, which you can purchase at my.world4you.com under Webspace > Database.

     

    When you create an InnoDB database, it is always empty. You can import an existing database via the Export / Import feature in the MySQL Administration.

     

    Additional Information

    More information can be found here:

    Sometimes you may experience problems when developing web applications locally on your computer (on the InnoDB engine) and then uploading them online to another database engine. Therefore, always check the configuration when copying projects between different server environments.

  • Since MySQL 5.5.3 there are e.g. the backward compatible, new Unicode standards supporting utf8mb4 encoding. But if an export is made with a new version and tries to import the data into an old MySQL database, this can lead to an error concerning unsupported character encodings. Here's an example:

     

    w4y-at-faq-mysql-error

     

    In this case, it should be enough to open the SQL export replace the line

    /*!40101 SET NAMES utf8mb4 */;

    with

    /*!40101 SET NAMES utf8 */;
