Due to cPanel price increases I’m switching my hosting from a cPanel/WHM plan to a DirectAdmin plan instead. This means transferring the sites into a new server; there shouldn’t be any downtime but if there is, that’s the reason.
Edit: jeri-ryan.net is down during the transfer – it’ll be back up ASAP!
Edit January 2, 2021: this is now complete, and everything should be up and working normally!
We’ve finished the transfer of star-trek.info to the new owner Bizarra, and I’m so happy 🥰
I also feel really, really weird, looking at my WHM and seeing only 7 accounts there! And all small ones at that!!! My biggest site is now https://www.jeri-ryan.net which is just over 16GB, and second biggest is https://www.spaceaboveandbeyond.org with its 15GB and that’s so small compared to my other big sites – Rachel Weisz, The Vampire Diaries, Star Trek, Xena which were all at least a 100GB, and the Star Trek one a lot more besides. The two are now by and large the biggest sites I have – the others vary from 160MB to 4GB and that just tiny! 😍
It feels totally odd not to have to huge sites weighing on me! Now that I don’t have any anymore, I realize it truly was a weight on my shoulders.
Just a quick note that I found a new owner for star-trek.info and we are in the process of switching everything over.
I’m so happy I don’t have to delete the site! 😀
It’s happened what I’ve been low key worried about for years – the current developers of eFiction have put the whole project and website up for adoption. If someone doesn’t take over the whole project, the entire project will be gone forever starting New Year.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed somebody takes it over but I’m not counting on it – all the other fanfic archive software projects have died 🙁 except for AO3.
Good thing I started the process over moving my two Oded Fehr fanfic archives over to AO3 at the start of this year, even though it’s been delayed by COVID-19. Guess I should contact them about it to see when I can start importing stories.
I’m closing down https://www.star-trek.info when the domain expires on August 11, 2020.
