How to enable Cloudflare with Railgun

A tutorial that will guide you about how to enable CloudFlare with Railgun for your website.

Cloudflare is a CDN that allows to enhance your website performance, speed and latency with the help of their distributed network across the globe!

Cloudflare offers a premium feature called as Railgun which helps improving the website load times, especially for dynamic websites such as WordPress devloped websites, Drupal, Joomla etc.

Railgun ensures that the connection between your origin server and the Cloudflare network is as fast as possible. It is a premium plugin from Cloudflare which is available as a paid feature. However, we at WebHostUK, being an exclusive Cloudflare partner, offer Railgun for free for websites hosted on our server.

Below tutorial will explain you how to enable Cloudflare with Railgun on our servers.


  • Once your order is processed and your account is enabled, you will gain cpanel access to your account, where Cloudflare tool is available under “Software” section as visible in below screenshot:

  • Click on Cloudflare and it will then redirect you to Cloudflare setup wizard

  • You can use any of your existing Cloudflare account or create a new one. If you already have an account with Cloudflare, then please make sure that the domain (for which you are intending to add Railgun) is not existing in your Cloudflare account. If it is so, kindly delete it from your Cloudflare.com portal login.

  • To integrate Cloudflare, you have two options:

i. Partial setup also known as CNAME setup of website with Cloudflare : In this setup, your domain will use our nameservers and the CNAME of “www” prefix of your domain will be resolving to Cloudflare alias domain name.

Pro’s of CNAME Cloudflare setup : DNS zones are configured on our server which means, you do not need to do any manual DNS changes for your domain or its MX records or subdomains. These DNS records are automatically configured in DNS zones on our servers.

Con’s of CNAME Cloudflare setup : Since only “www” prefix is configured with Cloudflare alias hostname, Cloudflare with Railgun for the respective website will only work if domain is accessed with www prefix. If the website is not accessed with www prefix, Railgun will not work. So you will have to force redirect your website to its www prefix using rules in .htaccess


ii. CloudFlare DNS Managed setup or full setup : In Cloudflare DNS managed setup, your domain will use Cloudflare nameservers which means all host records including “A”, “MX”, “NS”, “SPF”, “DKIM” etc are all hosted on Cloudflare servers. Cloudflare will control DNS for your domain and we no longer have any DNS control for your websites or its subdomains.

Pro’s of Cloudflare DNS managed setup: Cloudflare with Railgun will work for domain with or without “www” prefix. This eliminates the need of any such redirect of website from non-www url to www url

Con’s of Cloudflare DNS managed setup: Since Cloudflare will manage your DNS, you will need to manually add MX, SPF or DKIM records in Cloudflare DNS portal. Whenever you create any subdomain, its entry will also need to be manually added in Cloudflare DNS portal.


  • Once you have enabled Cloudflare for your domain using any of “cname or cloudflare dns managed setup” as explained above, you will now need to request for enabling Railgun for your domain. In order to request enabling “Railgun” for your domain, you will need to submit a request at : https://www.webhostuk.co.uk/railgun-request.php

Your submitted request will raise a support ticket under your account, and our 24/7 support team will then enable Railgun for your requested domain and update you via your support ticket.

How to check if Cloudflare with Railgun is working for your website?

To check if cloudflare with Railgun is working properly for your website, you need to take help of an extension plugin which is available for Google Chrome Browsesr : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/claire/fgbpcgddpmjmamlibbaobboigaijnmkl

Cloudflare if sucessfully enabled for your website and when accessed in Chrome, will show “red” dot as seen in below image

MySql offline error in cPanel

We have recently noticed, Mysql error poping up in cPanel when trying to access “Mysql Databases” tool.

The error mentions about “The MySQL server is currently offline” and also about mysql privileges warning such as “Error encountered while fetching data: There is no such grant defined for user ‘xxxx’ on host ‘localhost’ DBDISKUSED yyyyy 1909382 DISKUSED 1909382 DB zzzzzz DBUSER USER xxxxxx

We are aware about the error which is due to changes in grants in MariaDB 10.3.23. cPanel team is working on the above error and they also have updates posted at:

https://forums.cpanel.net/threads/cpanel-32712-updating-to-mariadb-10-3-23-on-cpanel-breaks-the-mysql-databases-interface.672141/

and

https://support.cpanel.net/hc/en-us/articles/360048322953-Updating-to-MariaDB-10-3-23-on-cPanel-breaks-the-MySQL-Databases-interface?flash_digest=4100901b496de2407784adbd2eb57f18034d42f9

Please note that while the interface indicates it is down it is only the interface the server is still running.

We do not have any ETA as this is a bug with cPanel and as per their update, they are working actively to resolve the error. We will post more updates when we have one.

cPanel Price Increase

Greetings everyone,

We wish to inform you about an important update that happened last week on 27th of 2019, where WHM cPanel have revised their pricing structure.

Reference: https://blog.cpanel.com/announcing-account-based-pricing/

Till now, cPanel had been offering their license for VPS and Dedicated servers without any number of cPanel account restriction.

However, with the revised pricing, there has been tremendous change in the updated pricing, as the new pricing is now account based.

We at WebHostUK have been offering cPanel shared hosting, cPanel reseller hosting, cPanel VPS and Dedicated servers. As per the old pricing structure from cPanel, since there was no such restriction for pricing as per number of accounts on servers, our services were not depenedant on cPanel account based exclusive pricing.

WebHostUK has always believed in “prize freeze” and we are doing all possible attempts to avoid such price hike. The options that we have so far are:

1) Find a sutiable solution other than cPanel as control panel (which does not offer account based pricing) and migrate to that new control panel.
OR
2) Pass on the price hike to our customers by adding the corresponding hike over to them.
OR
3) Wait for any miracle to happen from cPanel end so that they revert back their revised pricing based on account limitations.

We are still evaluating Option 1 and do not wish to pass on any such increased pricing as Option 2 above. We find Option 3 to be difficult to happen.

This pricing change by cPanel has affected the entire web hosting industry that has been offering cPanel as control panel with their web hosting plans. Hence, this is a global issue, and not limited to WebHostUK as you may have noticed by now.

With barely a few days passed, that cPanel announced their revised pricing, we do not wish to jump to any conclusion or any major changes that may affect everyone. However, we will be considering all the possible options and will be evaluating them from our customer point of view. We wish restore your faith in us by assuring you that we will be doing everything that we can, to pass on minimum impact towards our customers. WebHostUK is a decade old web hosting company and we have worked with all major control panels, not depending on any such single control panel such as cPanel. We have highly experienced system administrators who hold years of experience of mastering all other control panels, generating migration scripts to new control panel (if needed). We wish to assure you, there is nothing to panic, as we will take the decision that goes best with interest and convenience of everyone. While other web hosting companies out there are in shock and panic, we at WebHostUK want to assure you, we will be working on offering the best solution with minimum to no side-effects of adopting new technologies or control panel.

If you have any queries regarding cPanel pricing, please feel free to open a support ticket with us.
Thank you for your time.

Is WebhostUK GDPR compliant?

What is the GDPR?

The biggest regulatory changes that will soon be upon us – the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be implemented globally from 25th of May 2018.

Announced earlier in December 2015 by the EU commission, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be implemented on 25th of May 2018, and will eventually override the UK Data Protection Act 1998.

The new law, now termed as GDPR, is gearing up for a big change, to create a harmonized data privacy law across EU member states.

GDPR is wide-reaching in scope and expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal information is collected and processed. It also places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.


Who does the GDPR apply to?

The GDPR applies to all EU organisations that collect, store or process the personal data of individuals residing in the EU, including non-EU citizens.

Organisations based outside the EU that offer goods or services to EU residents, monitor their behaviour or process their personal data will also be subject to the GDPR.


What is WEBHOSTUK LIMITED doing, to comply with GDPR regulations?

The protection of our customer’s personal data is of utmost importance to us and we are committed to achieving compliance by May 25, 2018. We have classified our plan in 8 broad categories:

1) Updating our Terms and Conditions to reflect changes brought in by the GDPR
2) Updating our Privacy Statement to ensure that our customers know exactly what we do with their data
3) Minimising the amount of customer personal data that we collect and use
4) Reviewing our usage of personal data
5) Ensuring that the personal data we do hold is accurate and kept up to date
6) Ensuring that personal data is stored securely and that all relevant safeguards are in place
7) Reviewing the way we obtain marketing consents to ensure compliance with the “opt-in” principle contained in the GDPR
8) Reviewing all data processing agreements in place with our partners and suppliers to certify that third party processes are compliant with the GDPR


What happens next?

You will not notice any difference to the service you receive from WebHostUK Limited. We are simply making sure that we are fully compliant with the GDPR by 25th May 2018. If you have any specific queries, please contact Customer Care by emailing us on sales@webhostuk.co.uk or raise a ticket in your Online Control Panel.
