Stars.bz New Features and Addons
« on: May 10, 2016, 10:27:16 AM »
Fans,

I am excited to share some more information on what we are working on for our fans here. We will be adding some new features, optional add-ons and so forth. Here is a list of things in works:


1. Updated billing and order system with new clean theme.

2. New multi-site hosting plans which will be offered besides our current standalone fansite hosting plans. Multi-site plans will better suit fans who operate multiple sites and want to consolidate them in one control panel. Thus, it's cheaper and easier to manage. All domains will be add-on domains and will route correctly like: fansite1.com, fansite2.com etc.. These domains will not get separate cPanel though. This offering is not active yet.

3. We will be installing Litespeed Webserver (More info) on your server. This helps tremendously in speed of your websites.

4. New cPanel theme is installed for all Fansites. All you have to do is login to cPanel > Scroll down to the Preferences section, click Change Style > Choose Basic Sytle. This style is classy :)

5. Domain Registrations: You can now order domain registration with any of your fansites. If you already have a fansite and want to register or transfer new domain, please use this link: http://clients.stars.bz/cart.php?a=add&domain=register This is also in your billing Portal.Currently we will offer: .com. net, .org, .bz domains. More ext will be available soon.

6. Unblock IP: You can now unblock your ip directly from your billing area > go under Support tab. This is a very good feature to save you time. You don't have to wait for us to unblock you :)

7. Free Site Builder: All accounts now come with free FWH SiteBuilder. This is under "Software" Tab. This is a web-based site builder which is so easy to use and build sites.

8. Cloudflare: All accounts now come with Free CloudFlare plugin within your cPanel. We have partnered with CloudFlare for improved security and website performance of our websites. You can see CloudFlare under your "Software" tab. See this short video: https://vimeo.com/14700285

9. Free WordPress and Coppermine themes: In near future will be providing all our fans reusable WordPress and Coppermine themes  :clap:

10. SiteLock Add-on: This is optional add-on for few $/mo. where fans can add this plugin to their websites for enhanced security. SiteLock does: Daily Vulnerability Scans, Automatic Malware Removal, Web Application Firewall, SQL and XSS Injection Prevention + much more. Read more here: https://www.sitelock.com/plans.php

11. CodeGuard Cloud Backups: These are no ordinary backups, these take snapshots daily of your website. This is also an optional add-on for a set price $. It's like getting a time machine for your website. Watch small video of them here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPm59Xsre5E

I want you to know that we are here with you and for you. We are fans ourselves of your sites as well. We want to make this the best place to host for all fans of anyone and anything.

I want our fans to trust us and give us the chance to serve you. There might be few hiccups along the way, especially during migration. But rest assured you are in good hands. We have a dedicated team of support guys here who look after our servers and clients big and small. We provide rock solid hosting!  :D


Best Regards,

Rupi

So, how do we get MISSING posts back? I only know of 2 new posts, from May 7 and May 8, that are missing/gone from my site. What happened to those and how do I get them back? I don't think I can repost a "happy mother's day" post again. That would be weird to repost that again, days after the holiday. My site is http://mikeposnerhits.com. I'm upset that Mother's Day post I made is completely gone.

I have no idea if any other of my posts have vanished. I can't remember how many posts in total I've ever posted. I wish I had made a backup before all of these changed happened.

Also, I'm logged into my wordpress site and I'm trying to pull up the media library and it's not loading at all. It seems like it's trying to load, but I've never seen it take several minutes. It's not pulling up at all.

Hi Christina,

We really apologize for this inconvenience. We restored the databases mikeposn_wp, mikeposn_gallery from old server to recover the missing posts.
We created an custom php.ini file in your home folder and added some php variables in that file to fix the media library loading issue.
Could you please check both of these.

Let me know if you still need any more help on the same.

Ganga,
Stars.bz Support

I'm still waiting to hear back from you by email. I replied to your email about 15 hours ago to let you know that images are missing. I guess I'll just have to FIX the problem myself because my site looks horrible with featured images and photo gallery images missing. What a big inconvenience this is. I have to remember how I created one of the images that I have to do all over again, I didn't save the image, I already deleted it from my computer. It was a Mother's Day image/quote that I had made. I made a stupid mistake by deleting it. UGH! FML!

This is the email I sent you, minus the screenshots (if you want to see the screenshot images, then check the email I sent to support@stars.bz 15 hours ago).....

The media library seems to be working now properly. I now see the missing three posts (it was actually 3, not 2 posts) again, however the 4 images that were uploaded to WordPress within those posts are missing. Three of those photos were used as the featured images, and one photo was posted within a post, and they're still missing.

Also, three photos are missing that I uploaded to the coppermine gallery at http://mikeposnerhits.com/gallery.

So, it seems like just a few images are missing. If I need to, I can just reupload them if you aren't able to do so on your end.

Hey Christina,
                     Something i came aware of recently when my wordpress export of my site was corrupted and couldn't be fixed. I used archive.org to get the information and reposted the post. Before you hit publish you can change the date of the post that way its posted on same day
Thanks

Dear Fans,

We have now launched our multi-site hosting plans: Lights, Camera and Action. Please take a look. http://stars.bz

Multi-site plans will better suit fans who operate multiple sites and want to consolidate them in one control panel. Thus, it's cheaper and easier to manage.

All domains will be add-on domains and will route correctly like: fansite1.com, fansite2.com etc.. These domains will not get separate cPanel though.

We appreciate your feedback.

Hi, Rupi!

You said you guys appreciate feedback and I think this is a fantastic idea! It's great to have the option to have multiple sites on one account, if you like, especially for smaller sites that might not need a lot of space! It's also a great convenience to not have to log into multiple cPanels and FTPs!

I think, however, the payment is a bit skewed, at least for me, personally. I love the idea you guys had! I just see $6/month - which is $72 dollars a year - for 30gbs. I could sign up for 3 separate accounts - $1/month/$10 a year plan - and still get the exact same amount of space for nearly half of the cost. So I suppose it would work in favor if you have a lot of domains and don't need a lot of space - which definitely works out for some people!

Again: I really, really love this idea and I'd definitely recommend it to people I know if they're looking to host a lot of sites and don't need a lot of space for each one! I also saw the fansite add-ons additions and think the email looks wonderful! It's so nice to have that option again! :)

Ashley,

Thank you for your feedback. We have actually sweetened the prices even more. Now probably it makes more sense. http://stars.bz/
These plans are easy to manage from one panel, enough space, as most sites don't use all of the space.
