Servers Down – Updates will be posted here.

Update as of 11:30AM SLT / 2:30PM EST

Both servers are back up and running. I have restarted all streams & AutoDJ streams. I am still awaiting an official all clear so stream at your discretion. Thank you for understanding the situation, very much appreciated.

Thank you –LustyLexxi Larimore

Update as of 7:49AM SLT / 10:49AM EST

They are slowly but surely getting power restored. They have many people trying to help this all be resolved by having well known providers who are affected have their own technicians on site to try to help to restore services faster. So far, server ending in 58 is currently online. I have restarted radios & autoDJ streams on that server. I am keeping a very close eye on this entire situation and giving updates as soon as I get any new information. I very much appreciate your understanding & patience with this. It definitely helps my stress levels lol.

Thank you –LustyLexxi Larimore

Update as of 6:37AM SLT / 9:37AM EST

There is a power outage (seems due to severe weather some have reported that happened overnight/this morning) where even the backup systems are not receiving power so everything that is supposed to have backup power (ie. All servers and equipment) is down. They have electrical engineers working to get everything restored as soon as possible. I highly advise to switching to a backup stream as there is no official ETA on when this will be resolved and this is DEFINITELY out of our control. But they are working to get it fixed as this is affected an entire datacenter which accounts for thousands of customers.

Thank you for understanding & your patience –LustyLexxi Larimore

UPDATE as of 9:08AM EST: “Indications show there is a power outage in the facility. We’ve reached out and are awaiting status updates.

I am aware that the servers are currently down. I have opened a ticket and messaged the owner on Discord to fix it asap. I will post updates here for when they are back online.

Thank you for understanding & your patience –LustyLexxi Larimore

ALL CLEAR: DATACENTER Emergency Maintenance

As of 4/25/2024 @ 3:03PM EST / 12:03PM SLT


The servers are back online. Thank you so much for your patience & understanding! I appreciate it more than you know.


As of 4/25/2024 @ 9:20AM EST / 6:20AM SLT

Server ending in 58 is currently back online. Server ending in 138 is still being worked on. –Lexxi

As of 4/25/2024 @ 1:11AM EST / 10:11PM SLT

It is a networking issue that the datacenter wasn’t expecting. They have their technicians working hard to get the issue resolved and the server back online. They will let me know when it has been fixed. I cannot stay awake any longer as it is 1AM in the morning for me, I need to get some sleep. Hopefully by the time I wake up or when I wake up to go pee (it happens lol), the servers will be back online. I will update you as soon as I wake up whether or not there are any further details. Please, if anyone asks via SL, FB, Discord, etc, refer them to this post. This site is NOT on our servers and is hosted elsewhere for this exact reason – so I can communicate with everyone  even when servers are down. As you can obviously see, that it is a bright idea to do so.

I will, again, update you soon as I wake up. I appreciate everyone being so understanding and GREATLY beyond words appreciate your patience.

We are celebrating our 16th birthday here at Hostcrate a whole month early. We will be officially 16 years old come May 4th, 2024. This is also my chihuahua’s, Jazzie, 14th birthday (will be celebrating her bday too with a doggie cake & treats)! The following sales will be available through May 5th, 2024. Full transparency: I am running these specials to be able to celebrate this milestone in RL by taking my incredibly supportive husband out to a nice dinner & a movie. He has been there to help me get through some tough struggles through these last 16 years….the migrations, the sudden force of having to leave not one but two datacenters, the list goes on. Without YOU AND HIM, Hostcrate wouldn’t be here. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the last 16 years. You guys really do mean so much to me, I love you all!

Example: You donate L$1,500 to our RFL kiosk at our office. You renew at the vendor I set out up to 3 times so you’ll get 3 years on us as the BOGO and you hit the total hard limit of 6 years total while making a difference raising funds for RFL in the process. YAY!
