We are glad to inform that the new backup system has been introduced to all servers which resulted in all data being completely secure now.
the backup system introduced to one of the servers (S4) has performed well. This has resulted in the server working much more efficiently. Therefore, we are going to introduce the same backup systems on the other servers in two or three weeks’ time.
What is more, we are working on a special system which would check all the servers and their services and notify the administrators when something stops working. This will facilitate removing the problem much faster as the staff is going to be notified of the problem via SMS.
The Flaunt Network wishes to provide high quality services to their users and we do really hope that you are in favour of new innovations.
we have been working on a new backup system of your files. This new system has been already implemented to one of the servers (server #4). If it proves successful, it will be introduced to the remaining servers as well. The old system overloaded the servers pretty much which resulted in your fansites working a bit slower. The new system is much more efficient and fansites will work much faster. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Dear S2 Users,
one the harddrives on the server #2 has been replaced today. RAID is being rebuilt at the moment and it may take a couple of days. During this time, your fansites located on this server may work a bit slower. As soon as this process is successfully completed, everything will work as fast as usual. Sorry for the inconvenience.
we would like to express our apologies for the downtime which occured yesterday/today. Such long downtime occured for the first time and hopefully the last one. It was caused by a minor breakdown on two servers, including the main one. Everything is going back to normal at the moment. We are very sorry for this situation, but we do hope you decide on staying with Flaunt. Contact us if you have any problems.
All users are kindly asked to upgrade their Coppermine galleries due to their recently discovered vulnerability. The Coppermine development team has released a security update for Coppermine and the upgrade to 1.4.23 version is mandatory to all users. If you are not able to upgrade a gallery on your own, please contact the support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall do it for you.

Some of the servers did not work yesterday for two or three hours due to the temporary failure in the data center. The problem has been solved and all fansites are up now. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it was completely independent of us.
There exist many free fansite hostings similar to Flaunt Network on the Internet. However, there are some significant points that distinguish Flaunt from other fansites hosts.
1. Unlimited webspace.
Flaunt Network is hosting large fansites, and the biggest account amounts to ca. 45 GB at the moment. All servers are equipped with large-capacity hard drives which allows Flaunt to provide its users with unlimited webspace.
2. Only one advertisement required.
That’s true. Flaunt Network requires its users to place only one advertisement on their fansites. Flaunt wishes that the fansites look good, therefore, only one advertisement is required (not two as with other fansites hosts).
3. Security of data.
All data is properly secured due to the introduction of the double backup function. Backups are stored on two separate servers, therefore there is no possibility of losing the data. Additionally, each server is equipped with the firewall which prevents fansites from being hacked.
4. Unlimited bandwidth.
Each user receives unlimited bandwidth from the very beginning. For instance, one fansite used ca. 1500 GB of bandwidth in April.
5. Media hosting.
Flaunt Network possesses a separate media server with special libraries required for PHP Motion and vShare to work. You can check it by entering video.simplystreepmedia.com, twilight-media.org, or keiravideos.net.
Flaunt does hope that the above points will help to make a decision on joining the network.
Flaunt.nu, as the only free fansite hosting, offers a completely new service – a double backup of all data. In order to protect better the data of our users, all backups are made once a week. Moreover, once a week all data is copied onto a separate FTP server. Even if one of the servers has a breakdown, no data is going to be lost. All data is safe.
Additionally, ImageMagick and Fantastico are going to be installed on the newest server, S4. FreeType (needed for captcha to work) is going to be installed on all servers.
The new server is ready, so feel free to apply for free fansite hosting.
We are really sorry for the downtime today. The network card stopped working on the main server and technicians had to replace it. Everything is fine now. Sorry for inconvenience.
