StarsZZ | Free Fansite Hosting http://www.starszz.com Fansite Community - powered by Hollywood.com Mon, 15 Dec 2014 19:55:24 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1.1 Starszz has a new homepage layout! http://www.starszz.com/site-news/starszz-has-a-new-homepage-layout/ http://www.starszz.com/site-news/starszz-has-a-new-homepage-layout/#comments Wed, 04 Sep 2013 01:06:10 +0000 http://www.starszz.com/?p=2563 It has finally happened, we finally have a mobile-friendly main site! I won’t say it’s packed with features because it’s really not just a few new things on the main page and everything else is basically the same ;)

Also wanted to say thank you to everyone who contributed testimonials :) You can view all of them here. They are also short excerpts of them on the main page.

Migration to New Servers http://www.starszz.com/site-news/migration-to-new-servers/ http://www.starszz.com/site-news/migration-to-new-servers/#comments Sat, 15 Jun 2013 10:12:07 +0000 http://www.starszz.com/?p=2311 Over the next couple weeks, we will be migrating all sites to brand new server hardware.

Computing technology is always improving, and we would like to take advantage of this by upgrading to the latest components.

The benefit to you, our hostees, is more overall stability for your fansites.

The move will be performed by us in the background, you shouldn’t notice anything. Just continue to run your sites as per normal.

We will try to limit any downtime during this transition, but if you notice any problems, please start a topic in our support forums.

For those who are a bit techy and want some juicy details on the new servers:

  • Our current servers have 4 CPU cores (some with 8). New servers all have 24 cores.
  • Going up from 4GB RAM to 32GB RAM.
  • Larger 3TB hard drives.
  • Hardware RAID-1 for redundancy (if a hard drive fails, we can swap it with a new one without any downtime).

Plus all the usual goodies that come with our free fansite hosting. =)

Adding SuPHP – No Need to Change File Permissions Anymore http://www.starszz.com/server/adding-suphp-no-need-to-change-file-permissions-anymore/ http://www.starszz.com/server/adding-suphp-no-need-to-change-file-permissions-anymore/#comments Mon, 25 Jan 2010 04:23:47 +0000 http://www.starszz.com/?p=280 We will soon be installing a new tool on the servers called suPHP. With this enabled, you will no longer need to change file permissions on folders or files, which should make things a lot easier when installing scripts, adding pictures etc.

There is also an added benefit in that it provides better server security, and helps to keep your sites safer.

We will be rolling it out one server at a time, to make sure there are no problems.

Common errors:

Internal Server Error
If you get this error, then make sure you do not have any php files or folders with permissions at 777.

Once we change your server to suPHP we will automatically change all your files to 644, and folders to 755, so you do not have to do it yourself.

What you need to do:

Nothing. You should not need to do anything. We will take care of it all. If there is a problem with your site just let us know and we will look into it and fix it.

Just remember that once your server is using suPHP, that your:

File permissions are: 644
Folder permissions are: 755

The benefits. Why make this change?

No need to change file permissions anymore. The default file permissions of 644, and default folder permissions of 755 work fine for almost everything. We are doing this to try and make things easier for our hostees, and provide a better, simpler hosting experience.

Any questions or problems do please let us know

You Tube Clone Type Scripts http://www.starszz.com/hosting-features/you-tube-clone-type-scripts/ http://www.starszz.com/hosting-features/you-tube-clone-type-scripts/#comments Mon, 25 Jan 2010 04:07:46 +0000 http://www.starszz.com/?p=275 We now have a new server designed to host YouTube clone scripts, like PHP Motion.

Initially, we are only allowing it for sites with over 250 unique hits a day.

In order to help us cover the increased costs, video galleries will need to have two 728×90 banners. One placed above the fold, and the other at the bottom of the page.

The toolbar is as usual, still required.

If you would like to apply for an account to use a video script, please PM me with your desired sub-domain and I will setup your account on the new server.

For example if your domain is: example.com

You may request a sub-domain like: videos.example.com

Any questions do feel free to let us know

The application form for hosting is now located on the portal page under get hosted. This applies to new hostees and existing hostees as well.

We will be changing over the hosted sites directory as well, no ETA on that as of yet. We hope that you like the new look!
