Software Update

The software that we use has been updated. Please read below to learn more.

AUTODJ CLIENTS

Clients with AUTODJ, this is for you so PLEASE read this. If you need help, contact destruction Jigsaw or LustyLexxi Larimore or you can Email Me:

1.) If you have an AutoDJ setup from the old version, login to your cPanel WHMSonic and click “Update Required” button on your “AutoDJ Management” page. This will automatically update your AutoDJ without changing your mp3 base and it will create a playlist for your current mp3 base. This will be done within a few seconds or minutes depending on number of mp3 files under the current mp3 base. You can then manage your playlist under the playlist manager with a powerful playlist manager.

2.) WHMSonic requires a playlist before AutoDJ creation now. You can create a playlist under the “Playlist Manager” of your cPanel WHMSonic. You can easily upload music files to your playlist mp3 base which is shown on the playlist page by using “upload music files” button under the playlist manager. Internal radio clients can also use FTP to upload.

3) IMPORTANT: If you are an external radio client (unless you have a Custom URL, this will apply to you), be aware that this version has terminated/removed the FTP features. You have now better upload feature under the “Playlist Manager” >> “Upload Music Files” button. It is a multiple upload feature, you can select multiple songs by holding CTRL key. It will upload your mp3 files and will add them on your playlist, then you can manage your playlist.

For all radio clients, you may watch this tutorial video on how to create an autodj and playlist + ftp and reload playlist function + external radio clients upload new music and autodj creation.

Welcome to Hostcrate!

Hi there! Welcome to the Hostcrate website…we’re glad you could swing by. As the owner, I decided that it was time to put up a way for visitors/clients to see what is going on at Hostcrate especially about our site design that has been in development for a while now. We’ve encountered some inconvenient issues that had to be readjusted and the like if you’re wondering why it has taken so long. We do greatly apologize for that too! We would also like to add that we are really busy with helping our wonderful clients whom without, we wouldn’t be here. If this is your first time visiting, thank you and here is a bit about Hostcrate.

Hostcrate is over 4 years old (May 4th, 2008 is our birthday!) so we’ve been around a while with NO PLANS of leaving or what a lot of other businesses in the same industry does – sell their business. NO WAY! We absolutely love our job and what we do! Our business is mainly in the virtual world of Second Life and we’ve very much made a name for our self there because clients love our service and support so much, they tell others. And that, I must tell you is the greatest feeling to know that your pride and joy (in this case my business) has become so popular in such a short period of time. By the number of referrals everyday I receive – I know that my staff and I are on top of our game and doing our job right! Sure, like with any business, we have had our bumps in the road but we do our very best to meet the high expectations that our clients deserve to have delivered.

So…..Everyone who knows me, knows exactly how busy I am everyday and how much of a work-a-holic I truly am. Yes, I am the type who literally falls asleep at the computer in the effort to get something done lol. Our website is that important to me and I really want to deliver an amazing, user friendly website. I’ve seen so many sites that either just give me a headache because of the colors, aren’t user friendly at all with advertisements that slow down the surfing of the website so you can find what you need or are just…well, dull. I don’t want Hostcrate’s website to be any of that so that is why we have hired professionals for this job! (Me + HTML Coding = Disaster) I suppose you can say that we’re shooting for *perfection* here :) But, is that really a bad thing? I mean isn’t there that saying that good things come to those who wait? I believe that was the saying….Anyhow…

We will keep you posted using this blog on the status of our website being updated with a fresh, new site design so keep a look out. Please be sure to use our ticketing system if you need any help or have any sales questions. We will get back to you typically within the same day because I check my email constantly on a daily basis but give us a 24 to 48 hour cushion just in case life happens and I cannot check my email. We all know some times, things unexpected happens in our life and well, just because I’m the lovely owner – I’m no exception.

I would also like to note to our current clients in Second Life that we will be posting deals for the month starting on September 1st, 2012 instead of using notecards that have been confusing people so we want to make it easier for you to get in on the incredible deals we’ve been offering the past few months for you. Be on the lookout

Thank you all for reading!
