Server Upgrades Update

We are currently on schedule to have the upgrades complete on free.fansitehost.com sometime Friday! Hopefully we can get everything setup on the server by Saturday. That means Saturday Night or Sunday we should start transferring “some” sites back to the server.Most sites will stay on the server they are on now, but some will be moved back to free once the upgrade is complete to help with server loads/speeds.

Until then the servers “top” & “fast” may experience slower then normal responses due to them holding more accounts then we’d prefer while we upgrade the “free” server. Once we start transferring sites back to “free” performance will increase, please bare with us during this growing phase.


On a side note – Due to the server transfers some people are dealing with “DNS Cache Issues” – Things you can try:

We recommend using the server address to connect with FTP. So top.fansitehost.com – fast.fansitehost.com or ido.fansitehost.com depending on your server.

Transfer Update

The last of the accounts (4 GB and smaller) are being transferred to top.fansitehost.com (subdomains) or fast.fansitehost.com (domains) depending on your site.

Due to the large amount of accounts under 4GB we are asking for your help.

If your site is showing a database error then update your wordpress/coppermine config files to use “localhost” as the SQL server.

If your site has “lost” the last year of updates then don’t worry, just email us and we will fix it!

Server Migration for free.fansitehost.com

All accounts on the server free.fansitehost.com are in the process of being migrated to our new server top.fansitehost.com – We will send you an email when your site transfer has started. Once complete your config files should be using “localhost” and not “sql.fansitehost.com”. If your site loses posts for the last year then please let us know and we will move over the correct database.

Once all sites are moved off the free server we will be upgrading it to include SSD hard drives which will make all of our servers SSD Accelerated! This should improve the loading time of all fansites.

 

Update: A few accounts on the “ido” server will also be transferring to “top” now. At the same time we are transferring a few websites from “fast” to “ido” to assist with load balancing while we re-configure the free server.

New requirements for earning free domains.

Please be aware that we are needing to be more selective on giving out free domains due to the amount of fansites that request them and never do much with them. You can find details on the Apply page.
