I have a friend who I travel with and host occasionally. Friend is very controlling about food when it comes to herself, not others. She calorie restricts but doesn't want to talk about it. If she lets herself eat freely she falls into a distracted funk later on. I would appreciate any tips on traveling with/hosting a person who might be eating disordered. [more inside]
My wife and I will be going to Florida on vacation for a week at the end of February. We bought a condo earlier this year, and one of our neighbors is an older couple that has a winter home near Orlando. Their place has a semi-separate one-bedroom living space, and they very generously offered to allow us to stay there while we're on vacation, which will save us a few hundred dollars in hotel costs.

I have several websites that are hosted through Network Solutions. Since April, I've noticed more and more malware that is blocking my access to my websites. Only the sites on this provider are infected. Until this year (and for the 8 previous years on one of the three sites), I've never had any malware or infections. The provider offered me a new service where they monitor my sites and tell me how much malware is infecting them. I already know they are infected and inaccessible. They also say they can disinfect my sites for an additional $6.99/mo. Isn't it their responsibility to keep malware off their server that can infect account holder sites? Is this a legitimate ask by them?

I'm about to rebrand my blog (and give it some activity). It's on WordPress.com, which seems the blogging platform most recommended to previous askers, and it's the one I chose when starting said blog,but since I'm a very special snowflake, I'd like to have that perception challenged and see if there's something else out there that's better for me.

Lots of specific questions and info ahead. [more inside]

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?
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]
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.

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.

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?

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]
