Halloween Shenanigans – October 2020

Our Halloween shenanigans will begin on
October 1st, 2020.
Updated: 10/25/2020

Remember when I said we would have promotions/sales coming in October? Welp, this is it with a twist of playing a game of hide & seek! *P.S. if you have any suggestions on promos we should use, send them my way please*


Here is how it works:

There will be Halloween decor hidden all over the sim at Hostcrate. These decorations will be no copy & transfer only so when you find one, contact me & I will then request you send it my way. ***DO NOT SEND IT BEFORE I ASK OR YOU’LL FORFEIT THE PROMO WITHIN***IF YOU LOSE THE ITEM, IT CANNOT BE REPLACED SO PLEASE DO NOT ASK, SORRY***

It is that simple! Each item will contain a promotion of some sort. These promotions will range from different things that no one will know unless they find an item as none of the promos will be made public or be told to any staff.

You can find & redeem as many as you’d like until October 31st, 2020 at 11:59PM SLT which is when this game will end. However, you can only redeem a decoration once when you find one. Hope that makes sense! Items *won’t* be redeemed after the expiration, no exceptions.

**You have to be a customer to redeem any of the decoration promos, no exceptions.**

Semi-Dedicated Shoutcast Streams (updated 11/13/2020)

Hostcrate will be offering Semi-Dedicated Shoutcast streams.

We are the FIRST & ONLY to offer this in SL & out for shoutcast streams!!!!!

What is Semi-Dedicated?
These stream accounts will be on servers that will have a strict hard limit on the number of accounts on the server. Example: Server PURPLE will have a hard limit of only 50 stream accounts, period.

Why would I want a Semi-Dedicated stream?
Being honest, most won’t. But for those who wish to know there is a disclosed limited number of accounts on a server it would give peace of mind. On regular accounts, the amounts can range from 300 or more accounts on a server which can vary by account type (like space/autodj) and we DO NOT disclose the number of accounts on our regular plan servers.

Is there any other benefits besides the hard limit?
Actually, yes. So glad you asked! Semi-Dedicated streams will be *automatically* restarted anytime there is a reboot whether scheduled or not. This feature is called Premium Support but is included with Semi-Dedicated streams. Custom URL’s are included as well…even if you have/want a stream plan that doesn’t normally include it.

Is the Semi-Dedicated a plan or what?
The Semi-Dedicated is an optional add-on to our plans. The price you pay for opting for a Semi-Dedicated add-on includes the price of the plan you are on.

Example: You are paying for the budget plan at L$99 a week. You decide to get the Semi-Dedicated #100 add-on which is L$500 a week. You are *NOT* paying L$599 a week, you are only paying L$500 a week.

How many on each server?
We will have two options.

Option #1: A hard limit of 100 or less. L$500 a week / L$2000 a month
Option #2: A hard limit of 50 or less. L$750 a week / L$3000 a month

Why is this so expensive?
Actually, it isn’t expensive at all given the hard limits put onto these servers. Both still are less expensive given how much streams are in RL. With support staff that actually cares is always a plus, right? 😉😍

A quick search on google would give you an idea of how much streams cost (most start at $19.99 a month for less than 100 listeners!!)

Option #1: L$500 a week is $1.94USD a week / L$2000 a month is $7.75USD a month

Option #2: L$750 a week is $2.92USD a week / L$3000 a month is $11.62USD a month.

When will this option be available?
Pre-order is now available! We are setting up a new server on a new network to do beta testing. When all goes well, semi-dedicated customers will be put onto the server. When it becomes full, we will continue to order new servers. You will be informed along the way and when your semi-dedicated option has been applied to your stream.

We are shooting for Mid October. This will depend on how well the beta testing of the new datacenter will be. We will keep *THIS POST* updated.

How do I get the Semi-Dedicated add-on?
Easy. We will have designated purchase vendors. Click here for the direct vendor location. You would use the vendor.

Will my account details change?
The IP address will change because you will be placed on a different server. Your username, passwords, and port number should not change. Unless there is an issue server side with a port number which is unlikely BUT for full transparency, it may. You will be notified if there is any issue.

What if I have time remaining on my plan?
You would just pay the difference.

Example: You have 1 week remaining on a budget plan. You want to get the semi-dedicated option: L$500 – L$99 = L$401 you would pay in this case. If you have a club stream, however, with 4 weeks remaining: L$2000 – L$1500 = L$500 you would need to pay.

Will I be able to request a screenshot of proof that there are X amount?
Absolutely. Just contact me directly.

Are these the only two options that will be available?
There may be one more added with a hard limit of 25 accounts or less for L$1300 a week ($5.05USD/wk)  / L$5200 a month ($20.14USD/mo) but that will depend on the level of interest given to these two options.

Can I do the same if I have an RL account with you?
Yes. Just contact me directly. RL accounts pricing typically will be higher than SL pricing.

More Questions may be listed if they arise. Don’t be afraid to ask if you have any questions yourself.

Thank you!!

Updated Schedule For Maintenance (9/2/2020)

Hello all,

Customers have approached me on several occasions about switching the time frame at which we do our scheduled maintenance. After careful consideration & conversations with others on the time, we will be switching the scheduled maintenance to the following:



**Please note that it will be done on Tuesday or the next non-holiday if the scheduled date is on a holiday – For example: This coming Monday September 7th, 2020 is Labor day so the maintenance will be done that next day on Tuesday at 3AM SLT.**

This information will be posted on the dedicated scheduled maintenance page so you are well informed. Please bookmark this page & check the site often as this is the *main* place to find updates/important information as well as our facebook page & our discord (contact us for an invite). We update in our inworld group via notices & chat plus we have an inworld notice subscriber kiosk so it doesn’t take group space but the other options listed above are more reliable than SL’s system so make sure you follow us (you can subscribe to notices on our website, inworld via our subscriber kiosk, like/follow our facebook page, & get added as a customer on our discord).

Please also be aware that I am human so there may be instances where maintenance is reschedules or skipped – This may be for many reasons including RL situations or feeling unwell for one reason or another. I will do my absolute BEST to inform in advance. But please don’t be upset if I can’t in a decent time frame.

Thank you for understanding.
