#185281 Successful Fundraiser

Posted by HelioHost on 08 April 2021 - 03:31 AM

We recently hit the goal for our latest fundraiser! This means HelioHost is going to be getting a pretty good upgrade soon.

 

Johnny will be faster as we will be separating the VPS and Johnny from the hard drive that they are on currently and moving them both to their own new, much faster hard drives. The VPS will be faster because they won't have Johnny hogging all the hard drive speed and slowing everything down. We already upgraded our network which helps during ddos attacks and makes everything faster. We are also in the process of moving Ricky to a newer faster server. The next step is to use the fundraiser money to buy the new hard drives, and then Ashoat, the founder of HelioHost, will install the new hardware in our datacenter. Thank you so much to everyone who donated. It is because of you that HelioHost will continue to survive and improve.




#183336 Ricky To Be Upgraded

Posted by HelioHost on 31 January 2021 - 04:50 AM

HelioHost is happy to announce that we're going to be upgrading the Ricky server soon.
 
You may have noticed that Ricky has crashed a few times over the last couple weeks. This is because he is long overdue for an upgrade. Occasionally we have to rebuild all of our servers to keep them in an acceptable operating state. We were originally planning on upgrading Ricky in spring 2020, but our plans were delayed because of the pandemic since it wasn't safe to travel in the US. We have finally gotten the hardware set up in our datacenter the way it needs to be so that we can upgrade Ricky now. As part of the upgrade process we need to temporarily move all the accounts off Ricky though. Then we will move Ricky from Stevie to the faster Charlie server. As a Ricky user you have a few options:
 
Do nothing. If you don't do anything your account will automatically get moved to the new Ricky located on Charlie. It's free, it's easy, and we'll take care of everything for you. The downside is your website will be offline for at least a couple days, if not a week or more. We're unsure how long it will take to upgrade Ricky, and until the upgrade is done your account will be offline. The last time we did a rebuild like this on Johnny it took 8 days, but Ricky could be longer or shorter depending on if we run into any problems.
 
Move to Johnny or Tommy for free. If you backup your Ricky account, and delete it you can resignup on Johnny or Tommy for free at midnight UTC. Keep in mind that signups are limited per day, and they will fill quickly. Tommy usually fills within a few seconds, and Johnny will surely fill faster than usual too since so many people will be moving off Ricky. We will increase the number of available free signups as much as we can, but there simply isn't room on our other servers to move all of the Ricky accounts over even temporarily.
 
Donate to be moved to Tommy. This is the best option if you want to minimize the downtime on your site. All you have to do is donate as little as $1 USD and a HelioHost admin will move your account to Tommy for you. You don't have to delete your account or signup again or anything. Just make the donation, post your transaction ID and username, and we'll take care of all the rest. Tommy is our flagship server, and as such has the best uptime, and fastest speed of all of our servers. Even after we upgrade Ricky we expect Tommy to be better so this is a great opportunity to move if you're interested. If you want to donate $5 or more we'll even throw in double storage space as well during the move.
 
Let us know if you have any questions. We plan on beginning the upgrade process in one week on February 6th.
 



#180235 Introducing HelioHost.us

Posted by HelioHost on 22 October 2020 - 07:21 PM

We have purchased a new domain, heliohost.us, that users can create free subdomains on. None of the subdomains are currently in use so if there has been a subdomain on heliohost.org that have always wished was yours now is a great opportunity to snag the heliohost.us version. All new accounts created on HelioHost from today onwards will be required to be on the new heliohost.us domain, and any domain name changes will be unable to use the heliohost.org subdomain anymore. If you have a heliohost.org subdomain that you like you will be allowed to keep it if you want to. If you need help changing your main domain just let us know and we'll be happy to help.

Hello HelioHost,
I am using HelioHost since two weeks. And I have found it the best free
hosting ever. And the support members are also the best.
Actually, I am a student of age 15 years. I don't have money to buy domain
and hosting. I had found many free hosting services but they blocked me
when my website started to grow. But Heliohost is the one and only free
hosting service which has provided me with support all the time.
I really want to thank HelioHost Community. I also want to donate to
heliohost, but unfortunately, I dont have money. But I really want to thank
HelioHost.

Thanks a lot.


#171671 Happy 15th Birthday

Posted by HelioHost on 09 March 2020 - 12:32 AM

15 years ago on March 2nd 2005 HelioHost was born.

 

The last 15 years have had their ups and downs, but we managed to weather everything that was thrown our way and even thrive. We adamantly stuck to our ideals to continue providing free web hosting to thousands of users worldwide, and have grown considerably along the way. We started as a simple forum and cPanel reseller plan, then we moved to a VPS, followed by renting a dedicated server. After that in 2008 we bought our first server, Stevie, and two years later in 2010 we bought our second server, Charlie. Then in 2016 we bought our third server, Eddie. In 2018 we ran dangerously low on storage space so we reached out to the community by starting a fundraiser to buy more hard drive space. The fundraiser was a success and we used the extra space to create a Windows server named Lily. The extra storage space that the community funded has also allowed us to start offering affordable VPS subscriptions in addition to our free shared hosting plans. Finally, in 2019 we ran another successful fundraiser to buy our fourth server, Sparkie.

 

We're not done either. We will continue to do what we're doing for as long as there is a need for free hosting. Who knows what the future will bring?

#167757 Accounts Transferred

Posted by HelioHost on 22 November 2019 - 09:15 PM

The Johnny accounts are now done being transferred over to Sparkie. There were a few accounts that couldn't be moved automatically for one reason or another, so if your account is still offline let us know by creating a new topic in the customer service forum and we'll get you taken care of.

Johnny is now a clean slate so if you need php extensions or python modules installed for your site to work let us know. We'll be happy to install them for you, but we're not going to just blindly install everything that was on the old Johnny because we want to keep this server as fast as we can, and installing everything available will make him slow and bloated.

We'll be opening limited free Johnny signups tonight at midnight UTC. Over the next few weeks we'll try to find a nice balance between having as many signups open as possible, and keeping the load reasonable. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this much needed server upgrade. Also a huge thanks goes out to all of our donors who funded the purchase of this new server. You all are awesome!


#167742 Johnny Done

Posted by HelioHost on 22 November 2019 - 08:06 AM

Johnny has been rebuilt on Sparkie, and as I type the first accounts are being transferred over to the new server.

We have done considerable upgrades to the new version of Johnny, and we're excited to see what he can do. We increased the memory by 108%, and increased the CPU speed by 45%. Johnny also has all the latest software versions just like his big brother Tommy. We're hoping to be able to increase the time each day that we can offer free signups. The goal is to offer unlimited signups each day on Johnny, and continue to have limited signups on Ricky and Tommy to keep them stable. We have to turn away literally hundreds of potential users eager to try out our free hosting every day simply because our servers don't have enough capacity to support everyone that wants quality free hosting. This new Johnny server should go a long ways towards fixing that issue.

Free signups on Johnny are still closed while we continue to restore all of the existing Johnny accounts. Accounts that had java enabled already will not have to wait in line for java again, and those who were in line to receive java will still be in the same position in line. We'll make another news post once all the accounts are restored.


#166855 Johnny To Be Upgraded

Posted by HelioHost on 06 November 2019 - 08:24 PM

HelioHost is happy to announce that we're going to be upgrading the Johnny server soon.

You may have seen the fundraiser that we've had going to purchase a new server named Sparkie. We're not 100% to the goal yet, but we were so excited to buy a new server that we went ahead and bought it early. Hopefully we can get it fully funded soon. Since we already have the new hardware we decided this would be a great time to upgrade Johnny. He has been our slowest and worst uptime server since he was created in 2011. Just like we upgraded Tommy recently, it's time for Johnny to be upgraded. As part of the upgrade process we need to temporarily move all the accounts off Johnny though. As a Johnny user you have a few options:

Do nothing. If you don't do anything your account will automatically get moved to the new Johnny located on Sparkie. It's free, it's easy, and we'll take care of everything for you. The downside is your website will be offline for at least a couple days, if not a week or more. We're unsure how long it will take to upgrade Johnny, and until the upgrade is done your account will be offline.

Move to Ricky or Tommy for free. If you backup your Johnny account, and delete it you can resignup on Ricky or Tommy for free at midnight UTC. Keep in mind that signups are limited per day, and they will fill quickly. Tommy usually fills within a few seconds, and Ricky will surely fill fast too since so many people will be moving off Johnny. We will increase the number of available free signups as much as we can, but there simply isn't room on our other servers to move all of the Johnny accounts over even temporarily.

Donate to be moved to Tommy. This is the best option if you want to minimize the downtime on your site. All you have to do is donate as little as $1 USD and a HelioHost admin will move your account to Tommy for you. You don't have to delete your account or signup again or anything. Just make the donation, post your transaction ID and username, and we'll take care of all the rest. Tommy is our flagship server, and as such has the best uptime, and fastest speed of all of our servers. Even after we upgrade Johnny we expect Tommy to be better so this is a great opportunity to move if you're interested. If you want to donate $5 or more we'll even throw in double storage space as well.

Let us know if you have any questions. We plan on beginning the upgrade process in one week on November 14th.

#165418 Transfer Complete

Posted by HelioHost on 05 October 2019 - 11:34 PM

All of the accounts that were on Tommy when he crashed have now been transferred back, or invited to create a new account. If you haven't received your invite, or if your account wasn't automatically transferred please let us know now by creating a new topic in the customer support forum.
