Why am I getting so many Airbnb rejections from hosts?

My girlfriend and I have spent several hours picking out places to stay from AirBNB listings in Copenhagen. It SEEMS like there are so many wonderful, available places to stay. But my booking requests (5 so far) have all been declined by the hosts. What's going on here? How do I get a successful booking? [more inside]

Looking for a good, fast Wordpress host for 25k+ visitors/month

I have a Wordpress site with ~25k unique visitors/month, and I'm looking for a new host. I've been on Dreamhost for the last year, and have run into serious problems they can't seem to resolve (takes 60+ seconds for uploaded images to appear in Wordpress's media manager, any non-cached content has a 3 second time-to-first-byte). So I'm looking for a webhost that's fast, reliable and ideally, cooperates with a CDN like Cloudflare. Any suggestions?

Litte Miss Hospitality: Help Me Host Better Get-Togethers

You know those people who have a knack for entertaining? Not so much people who plan elaborate events and always make sure there's guest towels in the bathroom and enough ice when they host parties (although that's great) I’m talking about the folks who you have a great night hanging out with even if you've just turned up semi-unexpectedly and wind up staying for take-away pizza? How do they do that? What are the best ways to create a sense of occasion and make guests feel welcome? [more inside]

Shhh! (Surprise party for my wife! But what do I give the awesome host?)

I'm throwing a surprise party for my wife's 40th birthday this Thursday evening. One of my wife's friends volunteered to have the party at her house. She's also helping to arrange catering from her dad's restaurant (I'm paying for it, but at a steeply discounted rate--and she worked out the menu). So ... I'd like to give our friend a hosting gift.

Host For Photo Site?

Probably a perennial question, but stuff changes. I'm looking for recommendations for a host for a non-pro photo site. I've used Fiickr, SmugMug, and ZenFolio. I'm after a host that allows me to muck about with design, CSS and HTML, etc., but doesn't compel mr to admin servers or worry about installing security updates remotely. I can admin a server, but, you know, life's too short. Shared host is probably the best bet, but I'd look at renting a slice of a managed server. Basically, I just wanna build a site that looks like i want, upload photos, and be done with it.

Multiple control panels for website administering?

We are a small company with 3 subdivisions, each with their own sub-domain: Main Website: www.widgets.com Sub Domain 1: things.widgets.com Sub Domain 2: stuff.widgets.com Sub Domain 3: morestuff.widgets.com Right now we can login to our webhost's control panel & admin our website. We are wondering if there's a web host out there that would give us a separate control panel for each subdomain so that the head of each division can admin his own subdomain?

Switch host with least downtime?

DNS with 1and1. Hosting with HostPC. Something weird happened with my hosting account on Friday. I received a spike in traffic that suspended my account. They got it working again, but only partially. Email is still out of service after a few days. They say they're working on it, but I don't know how hard, and I can't risk being without it for much longer, so I'm considering now just switching hosts instead of waiting for HostPC to fix the issue. What host can I switch to that will propagate the fastest and have my email up and working as quickly as possible? 1and1 because I'm also doing DNS with them, or am I better off with someone else? Thanks for any help. [more inside]
