« on: May 07, 2016, 00:19:53 AM »
Hello Friends,

We want to reach out to you and share some good news. As of May 1st Stars.bz have been acquired by Fastwebhost.com We would like to welcome you to our family. With this acquisition, there will be few changes.

We will be migrating Stars.bz server to our infrastructure at FastWebHost.com starting this Sunday, 8th May 2016.

1. New servers will have better server resources. This will greatly improve the speed and performance for your sites.
2. Bigger platform and scalability.
3. More features and add-ons capability.
4. Faster and lower response times.

Since you are grandfathered in your current plan, there will be no increase in pricing and renewals. Please also note that current and future PayPal payments will show FastWebHost as the company name.

We will inform you once we start our migration process.

PS: For those customers not using stars.bz nameservers and use A record, you will be updating A record to 131.153.37.3 on Sunday for your website(s). Please don't update now, wait for our announcement here and over your billing email.

Customer using our nameservers: ns1.stars.bz and ns2.stars.bz do not require any changes to be done on their part  :yes:

I heard from someone it would take until tomorrow (Tuesday) for the whole thing to be complete?

For fansite owners, this is really difficult because our visitors rely on updates. Especially when some of us have fansites on series actors/actresses. Meaning they are on a weekly show.

And one of mine has a series on Wednesday. Do you think it'll be complete by then?

But I do understand that your team might not have thought there would be as big of accounts as there are on here which is why they estimated late Sunday instead of Tuesday. And I know these things take time. We are all just trying to understand when it will be exactly that we'll be able to update our sites regularly again.

And again, thank you to everyone who is working on migrating the sites to your servers. I do appreciate the hard work.

Is it possible to email the hostee once certain sites are done being moved? Some of us have huge sites but also small ones. And I need on update on what can I update through the cpanel and what I couldn't.

You guys literally couldn't have picked a worst time with this.

I have 3 updates to be made on one and 3 on another. I'm not one to complain when needs must but when one of the people you've a site for is in one of the biggest shows on TV now it's getting to become somewhat of a problem especially like Kaci said when a lot of them rely on updates from us..  :confused:

So if the FTP connect, we're all moved and we should change the NS?

No need to change ns if you are already using ns1 and ns2.stars.bz :)

Does this still apply to us hostees using Stars.bz's nameservers? Just asking 'cause I want to be sure everything's correctly done on my part. My site's current nameservers are ns1.stars.bz. As far as I noticed and I'm aware of, everything at teenwolfonline.net looks perfectly fine and it seems to work perfectly fine as well.

Is it okay for me to now update my sites and the scripts (I.E Coppermine Gallery) and the databases?

Yes, migration is complete and you don't have to change nameservers :)
You can now ftp as you used to before and update your sites.

I've had an email saying I'm almost out of disk space; checked cPanel and it's because I have a backup that was generated yesterday. My FTP still isn't connecting either, so I assume my site (amy-acker.org) is still being moved?

I'm not sure if this is the right place to let you guys know this, but I have been having issues (well, not issues, it's moreso an annoyance) with the server's upload/download speed. I have been working on Teen Wolf Online this whole afternoon and I've noticed that there's a change in the server's speed. Are you still working on getting things up to speed?

My connection's 50mb download/upload so I shouldn't be having to go through this back-up thing this whole afternoon and I've been wondering what's been the cause of this.
