The BENTLEY and FERRARI servers will both go down at approximately 2 AM Eastern time on June 21 to install larger harddrives. The downtime should last no more than 15 minutes, but you might experience problems with your website until roughly 6 AM (due to the moving around from harddrive to harddrive and what-not). Your sites should be fully functional by 6 AM EST! If you have any problems, let us know via the Help Desk. We thank you for your patience.

Attention Users on Bentley: Your sites are fine. The server will be undergoing a few major fixes today to fix the apache issues once and for all. Your patience throughout today would be greatly appreciated. The network team is working on getting the sites back up as soon as possible.

We are aware that MySQL is currently down for users on the Bentley server. No need to worry as it will be back up and running in no time! Keep checking back for updates. - MYSQL IS BACK UP! Also, users on that server can be rest assured that after this weekend we should be having no more problems. I'm going through with a hard drive reformat and a fresh OS install to fix all of the problems we've been having lately. Thanks for sticking in there this long...

Attention all current AND potential hostees: If you are interested in hosting a very popular Cassie website (www.cassieweb.com), and you have experience in designing AND maintaining a fansite, please Contact Us with a sample of your work. We can't wait to hear from you!

We are aware that squirrelmail is giving users on Ferrari an error. We're working on the problem, and it should be resolved very soon. SQUIRRELMAIL IS BACK UP!


» March 9, 2007
The CelebFanatics network team is well aware that Bentley has been acting funky this past week. We are not exactly sure why apache on that server keeps going down, but we are trying our best to resolve this issue as quickly and effectively as possible. Please bear with us! The server is perfect, it's just the apache process keeps shutting itself off. If you notice, all e-mails, ftp, DirectAdmin, etc. processes continue to work in spite of the server's "downtime." So no need to worry...


» February 22, 2007
Bentley will go down sometime between 1 AM and 2 AM Eastern tomorrow morning to install additional RAM memory. The server will only stay down for about 5 minutes, so you probably won't even notice the downtime.

Welcome to 2007 here at CelebFanatics.net! Here we are, once again, presenting you all with a fresh new layout created for the sole purpose of bringing in the new year! 2006 was a great year for us. We welcomed a lot of new sites, and implemented our second server! And we hope that 2007 will bring even more joy to the CelebFanatics fansite hosting network! Nothing major has been changed aside from the new layout, but if you look to the left, you will see something new - a link that notifies you when we're available for "Live Chat" via the Support Center! And speaking of the Support Center, if you browse through you will notice an updated KnowledgeBase, Download Center, and Step-By-Step Troubleshooter! We will constantly be adding popular site scripts to the "Download Center" and articles to the "KnowledgeBase," so be sure to visit this site often so you can stay informed! To get the full benefits of the Support Center, you must REGISTER! Click Here for more information on that.

The Ferrari and Bentley servers will both go down sometime between 9 PM and 11 PM Eastern to install additional harddrives for backup purposes. Once they go down, they should be back up after about 15 or 20 minutes. Also, we're looking into turning weekly backups into daily backups (since we're on faster servers) - so look out for that!


» December 19, 2006
Bentley will be undergoing a series of scheduled maintenance to fix a few internal issues. Sites using MySQL will notice more than sites using raw HTML, but these issues shouldn't last more than a couple of hours (between 1:00 and 3:00 AM Eastern).


» December 18, 2006
Whew! After well over a week of backing up, moving, restoring, testing, rebooting, and repeating several times ... THE MOVE IS COMPLETE! All websites should be fully functional now. Also, I noticed, as I was moving sites, that a lot of sites haven't updated in a while, and some don't even exist anymore. So over the next few days, I will be deleting these sites off from the servers, and allowing room for more hostees to fill in their places - Sorry guys, you know the rules!! I hope you guys are enjoying the new servers, and should you need any assistance what-so-ever, PLEASE feel free to contact me via e-mail, AIM, or our fully automated support center!


» December 10, 2006
The moving process is ALMOST complete! The majority of the websites' files, settings, databases, AND dns information has been transferred over!! At this point, there are only two reasons why your site would not be working. The reasons are outlined below.

Reason #1: Unfortunately, not ALL of the sites transferred over as smoothly as we planned. The following sites will have to be manually backed up, and transferred over to their new home: beyoncemedia.net, beyoncephotos.net, kelendriafans.com, longoriaweb.org, madonna.nu, nick-lachey.org, sherihan.com, simpleplanonline.com, and raven-symone.org. The sites listed here will be moved into their new locations within the next 24 - 48 hours - GUARANTEED!

Reason #2: I'm not sure if hostees actually check this page very often, hehe. Because I clearly stated on December 9, 2006 that ALL users housed on the FERRARI webserver would have to go into their domain registrars and change their DNS information to NS3.CELEBFANATICS.NET and NS4.CELEBFANATICS.NET. If you haven't done so yet, your site will not be fully functional. Changes to DNS take approximately 24 - 48 hours (at the most). In some cases, within 2 or 3 hours your site will be fully functional. But don't count on it! ;-) Sites that clearly HAVE NOT changed their DNS information: brandnewfashion.com, chase-cameron.com, destinyvault.net, eva-the-diva.com, longoriaweb.com, kamilleleai.com, sherihan.com, and raven-symone.org.


» December 9, 2006
Alright guys! The day has come, and we are moving servers! Users on Bentley have nothing to worry about. You will not have to log in and change your nameservers to anything. But, users on Ferrari must log in to their registrars and change their DNS info ASAP!!!
Bentley Nameservers: NS1.CELEBFANATICS.NET & NS2.CELEBFANATICS.NET
Ferrari Nameservers: NS3.CELEBFANATICS.NET & NS4.CELEBFANATICS.NET

Bentley's websites will be backed up, and moved first in alphabetical order. I will come back here to let you know which sites have been moved. After your site has been backed up, and moved to the NEW server, your old info will be deleted from the current servers. If you own messageboards (located on these servers), I would advise you to temporarily shut them down so that you do not risk losing new user registrations, and new & updated threads and posts. Check this page AT LEAST once every hour (if possible) for more updates...

UPDATE - 06:01 PM EST: Ferrari's websites are currently being backed up and moved in alphabetical order. When your site has been backed up, moved, AND restored, I will post it below. If you own a messageboard, it would be to your advantage to temporarily disable it so you don't risk using any data. Check this page periodically for more updates...

Wow! It's been a while since I posted here, hehe. But I guess that's a good thing! We haven't had any major downtime (no more than a couple of hours total), and everything with the servers is well, and fortunately, about to get MUCH BETTER! We are moving to a new server provider, and the new servers will be faster, more reliable, and will feature RAID harddrives - resulting in almost NO downtime whatsoever! I will elaborate more once everything is finalized. We should be in the new servers by this weekend. Get ready! Haha, my next post will have official dates and times for the sets of sites I will be moving. Stay tuned for more...

Once again, we have upgraded our overall look. Other than the layout, nothing else has majorly changed. A lot of applicants have noticed that it's taking me a very long time to respond to your hosting inquirees. I am not, by all means, ignoring your application. This network has grown faster than I had expected, and it's gotten to the point where I'm getting at least 10 applications per day. So, to correspond with that, I have increased the total wait time for a response from 7 days to 14 days. So now, if you don't receive a reply from us within 14 days (2 weeks), then your site hasn't been accepted. If you applied at ANY time in the month of September, then your application is still being considered. If you do not receive a reply from us within 14 days (starting from the date above), then your site has not been accepted.
Also, I have been notified by a few hostees that mySQL on Bentley has been acting up lately. For the past 2 weeks, I have been tweaking certain things on the server to ensure maximum optimization. And so far, nothing seems to be working. So I'm going to move on to Plan B. I will be looking into upgrading the CPU of the server to accomodate all of the sites that it is currently holding. That should fix the problem. I will let you know of the date and time the upgrade will take place. If your site is hosted on that server, then I appreciate your patience and cooperation with me.

The support desk has been fixed. You may now login and use it for technical support. If you get any errors over the next few days, it's because they (Auracle) are transferring all of their clients' files over to a brand new network. But everything should be okay ;-)


» August 5, 2006
The support desk is down right now, but we are currently working on getting it back up ASAP! All support queries should be sent to the AIM screenname or to the e-mail address. We will let you know when the helpdesk is fixed.


» July 16, 2006
I apologize for the downtime with the Help Desk. We had to migrate it over to a new system, but now everything should be working perfectly. All support queries should be made from there from now on.

For the past two weeks, I have been working non-stop on the new CelebFanatics; and this is the final result! A brand new layout with tons of new pages and features. For one, the Guidelines have been updated; so be sure to check them out so that you won't be caught doing anything wrong on your sites. The Plans have been updated, and have been separated into three distinct categories: Free, Paid, and Reseller. The Application has also been updated, and includes a few more form fields so that I can set your account up as soon as I get the application; rather than e-mailing you back for more details! And we also have more information about our network, via the About Us section! There, you can read Our Story, find out Why You Should Choose Us, and check out Webmaster Testimonials from our Elite Hostees! And finally, the Ad Generator has been updated to include all acceptable formats: 728x90, 468x60, 120x600, 160x600, 300x250, 250x250, and 336x280.
Another thing that is new at CelebFanatics is our Community Messageboard! The CelebFanatics Messageboard is a place where fans can interact with each other, and talk about virtually ANYTHING! Please keep in mind that the board IS NOT for hostees only. ANYONE CAN JOIN and become an active member! So be sure to tell all of your friends about the new board so that we can build it into a huge fan community! Current CelebFanatics Hostees: I would really appreciate it if you could help me promote the board on your sites! Contact me if you would like to help me out by posting a message, or putting up a promotional banner of some sort.
And last, but CERTAINLY not least, something that you all have been wating on FOR MONTHS has been implemented and is ready for use! The all-new Support Center is now online and LIVE! I still have to customize it a bit, and add some Knowledgebase Articles, but please know that this is the new way to request support. If you have an issue with your site, or need more space, or something like that, then that is the place where you need to let us know. Be sure to register, and check your e-mail to verify your registration. With all of that said, ENJOY THE NEW LAYOUT AND ALL ITS NEW FEATURES!!

New Rule: So that the servers can work more efficiently and smoothly, I have made a change to one very important rule. ALL media must be zipped, whether it is 1 MB or 100 MB. This includes, but is not limited to MP3, MP4, WMA, WMV, RM, MPEG, MOV, etc. Our Guidelines page has been updated to reflect this change. Be sure to zip any new file that you have to upload. If you have big files on your server that need to be zipped, and you don't feel like re-uploading them, let me know. I can zip existing files on the server. This may be a pain, but you all will thank me when your visitors stop complaining about slow and broken downloads. Hopefully this rule change will prevent that =P

The Ferrari server has been having a lot of problems lately, but luckily, they have all been fixed. If you still seem to have trouble with your website staying up, please feel free to Contact Me.
Both servers will go down at 2:00 AM tonight for routine network maintenance. Your site will be fully functional after an hour or so.


» March 20, 2006
Welcome to the all-new look of the CelebFanatics fansite hosting service! With this change of layout, we have some more features to notify you all about. We now have a "Google Ad Code Generator," which can be found by clicking Here. PLEASE update your websites with these new codes. You can no longer use the old method of getting your codes, from now on, please use the Google Ad Code Generator. If you have any questions please feel free to Contact Me. Another thing that has been updated is the "Network Status" feature. In the past, you could only view our uptime. Now you can view the vitals of all of our servers! Be sure to Check It Out! And last, but certainly not least, our "Guidelines" have been updated with new rules. Be sure to Check Them Out immediately so you won't be caught violating any of our terms.
