in order to get contracts , you need to build some reputation, i have seen people with more reputation gets more contracts than the newbies,uptime could help you to get reputation ,just keep your host running.
it's working smoothly , the host is now online and green, if ports are open you should be seeing the "HOST UNREACHABLE" msg . if this is open, anyone has full access to your said and can manipulate it. this includes empty wallet.
Unfortunately, you cannot migrate host to a different os for now because the path of your storage folder must be exactly the same for it to work
Windows: C:/<path to storage folder>
Linux: /<path to storage folder>
One way to switch OS is to disable accepting contracts and wait for all your contracts to complete on your old os before setting up another host on your new os.
OK, I figured it out - you cannot resize a folder if you only have one folder.....
I created two new small folders in addition to my original folder.
They were each big enough to hold all the data I was storing.
I then resized my original 5TB folder to a very small size 50GB (big enough to house the files I am hosting).
This worked. I then removed the original folder ( siac host folder remove <path> ).
I then removed one of the two new folders and all the stored data ended up in the remaining new 50GB folder.
I likely could have done this with just one new folder.
Happy now I can reuse the 5TB on my NAS :-)
I want to host my website. Which hosting site will be better for my https://hpsupports.co/hp-support-assistant/ website? I can pay for that but the most important thing for me is the security provided by the hosting site. So please suggest me some of hosting website.
