Maestro resuming day-to-day management of AB

February 12th, 2014 by Maestro

Just to let everyone know that I’m going to be taking management of the site back over. Support requests still go to support@, but now I’ll get a copy. Akaiwolf will stay on to help with the site, but I’ll be doing the main management functions from now on.

I’m in the process of moving the Antenna and blogs that were previously hosted on Akai’s server over to a new server I ordered. There shouldn’t be any downtime in this migration. I will set the WordPress install on the current server to use the new server’s database server, so no matter what server is hit during the DNS migration, the same data will load. Scratch that, the connection between the servers is too slow, so WordPress times out before the database connection can be made. I’ll just leave the blogs on the old server in maintenance mode (using the plugin of the same name) instead. If you see your blog in maintenance mode, you’re hitting the old server.

Blog transfers will take place starting today. If you have any questions feel free to contact us at support@.

Migrations and Housekeeping!

August 16th, 2012 by akaiwolf

Greetings everyone,

As everyone may or may not be aware, last year we started offering paid plans on our hosting to supplement our server costs. Unfortunately we haven’t had many users sign up with us. Come this September we will be clarifying our paid plans as well as free hosting plans for everyone.

We will be conducting mass-migration operations over next weekend, the 25th of August thru to the 26th of August. While we will try to keep the downtime per-site to a minimum, we ask for our users’ understanding that we are moving most of our servers to a new host.

Please note that the order for migration will be by account status(paid takes priority) followed by alphabetical order of the site.

As usual, any and all donations to support us will be greatly welcomed, please direct donations to donations[at]animeblogger[dot]net via PayPal.

Last but not least, the antenna will be scheduled for clean-up and migration the week after, on the 1st of September.

We will be posting updates on our Status Blog and via twitter, so please follow @animeblogger and the #animeblogger hashtag for any updates. Our facebook page is cross-fed posts from our status blog.

Regards,
AkaiWolf
AnimeBlogger Operations Team

New Hosting Plans

July 19th, 2011 by akaiwolf

Greetings, fellow AnimeBloggers!

As you may have noticed from the past few newsletters, AnimeBlogger has been undergoing some changes. The next change in the works is the introduction of paid hosting services.

The plans will come into effect only on the 31st of August.

Now, you may ask, what do we mean by paid hosting services?

For a start, we will have the following plans available from the 1st of August 2011 onwards. (All prices are in USD)

‘ FTP Access Add-on: $1.00/mth

‘ Ad-free Upgrade: $1.50/mth

‘ HDD Storage (50G) Upgrade: $1.00/mth

‘ Bandwidth (50G) Upgrade: $1.00/mth

‘ Full Service Paid Hosting: $3.50/mth (Full Service Paid Hosting includes all of above add-ons and upgrades)

And if you sign up for a two-year period at once you get a discounted rate of $3.00/mth!

‘ Own Domain Add-on: Registration cost of the domain

For a limited time (until December 2011), if you sign up for any Full Service plan, you can get a 1-year domain (.com/.net/.org) registration for $6.00 only! (Most registrars charge $10.00) You also get free WHOIS protection by DreamHost!

 

The limitations for each site (before add-ons) will be: 1GB HDD Storage, 3GB Bandwidth Transfer/Month.

 

We will be contacting our current blog owners within the month about their sites. If you’d like to sign up, contact us at support[at]animeblogger[dot]net or wait for our new sign-up process to be ready.

Updates to delayed migration and plans

June 29th, 2011 by akaiwolf

So, stuff happened during the last couple of months and we should be starting to plan and move stuff (for real this time) over the next couple of weeks, beginning somewhere next week.

Also during this period we will be working on a whole new antenna and AnimeBlogger.Net homepage. We’d gladly accept suggestions and ideas in comments, especially in the area of the antenna features that users would love to see.

Edit 1: Working on new status blog for animeblogger… it will be at status.animeblogger.net > stay tuned

Migration and Etc

April 19th, 2011 by akaiwolf

Good day everyone,

Just a quick update on the schedule and things happening here.

1. Migration for AnimeBlogger sites will commence 23rd April 2011 thru 29th April 2011.

Bloggers may notice downtime due to migration. I will make an attempt to notify the blog owner before their blog’s scheduled downtime.

Only some blogs will be migrated, there will be a slight delay in full migration due to other server downtime/unavailability with our host

2. Other bloggers who are moving into AnimeBlogger

I have received multiple requests for bloggers that are interested to move onto AnimeBlogger hosting, please note that there will be a page up on this website soon regarding that.

3. Change in plans for all bloggers

Following up on the newsletter sent out on the 14th of April, more details will be available here soon.The implementation of current users to new plans will be made during the first week of May at latest, so you have time to consider it.(Again, the plans and add-ons will be posted here within the week)

4. AnimeBlogger Status Blog

You probably may have noticed that the status blog is down, any urgent updates on server status, etc will be put up on twitter on the hashtag #animeblogger, and on facebook in the animeblogger.net group.

5. AnimeBlogger Community Page on FaceBook

We are in the midst of creating the community page, more to come next week.

6. Donations to AnimeBlogger

Please ensure that donations to AnimeBlogger go towards donations[at]animeblogger.net. You might notice the company name listed as Reinforce Networks. They are our hosting company, and this to ensure that donations made will (directly) go towards the payment for our servers.

Status Monitor

August 1st, 2010 by Mellow

Hi there people!

We have launched a new blog to keep everyone up to date on what is happening with the network. We have hosted this on it’s own server in a different data center to ensure it’s reachable even if we have issues elsewhere on the network.

Information on network outages, upgrades or migrations will be posted to the new blog as well as information on our network development plans.

That is all for now :)!

Mellow
