I’m raising my prices on pond 5, and doing cheaper prices on symbiostock. then get 100%October 17, 2013 at 11:47 am #4902
Mark, I am very sorry that you had a difficult experience. Let me make some notes to your comments since I think it is not just to make those comments generalized for every VPS:
1. There are managed and unmanaged VPS servers. The managed one are usually a bit more expensive but the hosting company will give you support and resolves issues with the system for you (but not for the script you install of course).
2. I do not know what Bluehost offers but there are tremendous differnecies between hosting companies. Personally I do not like them very much and their VPS offer seemed to be rather expensive.
3. The SSH is oftenly scaring people but in the end it is a quite easy thing to handle if you have a talent for technology. Most times you can just google what you need alongside with your Host OS and you will find solutions fast. Same goes for error messages which may appear. Just google them with your OS.
Nevertheless I realize that you have to have a certain Talent for Computers and their Logic. Want to say: it is not for everyone to dig in SSH, but you can always go for a managed with a good hosting company.
I hope this helps…
I have got a web design company to switch the program from gd library to imagemagick for me. That solved that problem. The only other problem I have at the moment is a error log file that builds at an exponential rate 2GB per 12 hours. However, I’m working on that.
Other than that, actually I’m pleased with my VPS. It certainly is a lot better than shared hosting. Also I can host multiple sites off of it. This is very useful
Thanks for the info by the way about the managed and unmanaged I never knew that.
Overall if I’m honest would I prefer VPS or shared. Now everything is getting sorted I’d rather have VPS
I was able to process a 400MB video without killing it this morning! I don’t know if that would be achieveable on a shared server.October 16, 2013 at 10:31 pm #1992
My anonymous Symbiostock buddy got about 6 sales in the last few days! I guess its becoming pretty regular for him now.
I bought 3 images off of one person !
I probably need another 6 more images in total to do my key stage 3 science site.October 16, 2013 at 9:36 pm #5198
Thanks, I didn’t even see those options!October 16, 2013 at 2:34 pm #5156
I think thats linked to upload directory. Use ftp for now.October 16, 2013 at 2:24 pm #4385
will do the same
Thanks, give the address and I will post a blog about your site in return from my science tuition site.October 15, 2013 at 3:22 pm #4899
I’m on what you might say is a learning curveOctober 14, 2013 at 10:02 pm #4380
Solids, Liquids and gases (ice, water and steam together)
distillation or chromatography
Acids and Alkalis
Forces maybe a boy pushing a big car or something to show forces
Something to show heart, lungs and blood circulated around the body.October 14, 2013 at 9:58 pm #1985
I need some more images, problem is none are really on symbiostock.
I will update my thread in the looking for imagesOctober 13, 2013 at 5:56 pm #4469
What would happen if you took one frame from the video and made it availabe as a blog size only, would havinganother, nonzipped file help?
i’d thought about that, but hadn’t had time to test — i’m afraid that then buying the ‘blog’ size wouldn’t deliver the real file the zip — Leo???
if we can get this nit fixed, then we have a workaround for people to be able to sell video clips directly
This would be really useful Leo if you could fix this please.October 12, 2013 at 11:59 pm #3185
I moved to VPS to stop the throttling. However, as a warning to anyone else thinking to do the same if you have Imajick installed it will default back to GD library. Now I am trying to work out how to get Imajick installed again!October 11, 2013 at 11:39 pm #4379
Thanks, I managed to source two images, one from Advantica and the other from Ray stock. Thanks to both of them. I’m really after school setting with children in.
If anyone has any of children in clasrooms or of children being taught by adults, I’m interestedOctober 11, 2013 at 3:52 pm #4376
Hi, thanks, but I’m really after pupils enjoying a practical science lesson or something like that.October 11, 2013 at 11:23 am #4322
Watch the bad backlinks you might gain over time from sites other than symbiostock. This caused me a drop in traffic
