Take a look at our new add-ons!

We are really happy to announce we have added add-ons to our packages. We are concerned that people worry about the safety or their sites we wanted to go ahead and add extra backups for extra price to our packages. Currently we run weekly backups to an external server, and through cPanel anyone can restore them as a whole or browsing through files. However, since now on, any client can order daily backups as an add-on with an amazing price!

– Fan Package: $2.00 quarterly + $0.25 set-up fee.
– Ultra Fan Package: $2.50 monthly + $0.50 set-up fee.
– Fan Package: $5.00 monthly + $1.00 set-up fee.

If the addon is bought, daily backups will be taken nightly and users will be able to restore at any time through cPanel. Why backups are important? Sites can break anytime, database can break, files can be accidentally deleted, you can modify a file and break your site, server’s disks can die, to sum up, anything can happen to your site’s files. If daily backups are taken, then you will loose only up to 24 hours of work, instead of up to a week. Please, note that set-up fees are only paid the first month as we need to set up manually the system to change the backups rotation or your site/reseller.

Additionally, dedicated IPs are avaliable for just $3.00 monthly. IPs can be set to a site or a whole reseller.

You can order add-ons by login in our client area: services > view avaliable addons. We may increase backups prices in the following month(s), however, those who sign-up now will be grandfathered and their add-on price will not be affected.

Nameservers change

Dear Clients,

This is a really important information, we will not be -for now-  renewing our main subdomain: 4fans.club meaning that nameservers using it will stop working on the due date, please, if you are using ns1.4fans.club and ns2.4fans.club switch to:

ns1.host4fans.net
ns2.host4fans.net

These are now our afficial nameservers and we have also made some improvements so with those nameservers your sites will be running faster. Wether or not we renew the subdomain, the stated nameservers will be the official ones.

Remember: Not updating your nameservers by 2019-03-18 may result in your site going down. We apologize for any inconvenience but sticking with just one nameservers will also cause less confusions.

Best Regards,

HOST4FANS.

Host4Fans is now using PHP 7.2 as default PHP version

This is just a remainder that PHP 5.6 reached end-of-life yesterday and will no longe receive updates, sites still using PHP 5.6 will be a target for hackers and your site will no longer be safe. We recommend to everyone to upgrade to PHP 7.2 or PHP 7.1 (if there is any compatibility issue with PHP 7.2) as 7.0 has reached end of life as well.

Upgrading to PHP 7.2 with WordPress should not be an issue, however, you will need to upgrade Coppermine to 1.6 in order to work with PHP 7.0 and newer. If you do not know how to upgrade Coppermine  click on the link so you may want to check it out and upgrade as soon as possible.

As previously said, running PHP 5.6 as of today could be dangerous for your site, so please, make sure to upgrade as soon as possible, if you run into any issue, submit a ticket so we can help you out with the upgrade. Upgrade should only take 5 minutes per site and your site will be using a faster and more secure PHP version. Please, bear in mind we may not be able to help if your site gets hacked for using PHP 5.6 as it is your responsability to use the safest PHP version which right now is PHP 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3, being 7.2 the most common as PHP 7.3 has just been released and there may be some compatibilities issues with WordPress.

New sites created will run automatically 7.2 version, although you will still be able to change the through cPanel it is not recommended to use 5.6.

Regards,

Host4Fans.
