VilloFetch

Project News

September 30, 2015

I didn't realise that the public server had been working intermittently for the last 20 days. It should be back to normal now.

June 12, 2015

VilloFetch no longer supported. After six years of operation, I realised that I'm putting too much effort in a project that I don't like anymore. I started VilloFetch in 2009 because I needed it, but it has been a long time since I stopped playing Travian and I've kept supporting the site out of good will. Now I'm too busy to keep up with the changes that Travian in constantly undergoing, so I will stop updating the site. I will keep running it for as long as the ads pay for the server space. Secret Domains will be slowly shut down, giving plenty of time to find an alternative. If you want to share your opinion with me, please use the "Feedback & Support" form.

Fixed a problem with gold purchase.

The Travian MH have become more intolerant of abuse by VilloFetch users: if you are a multiaccount player using the same VilloFetch server you WILL be banned in a couple of weeks at most. This is because I can't hide the IP address of the VilloFetch server connecting to Travian and you will be spotted. So be careful: if you are doing multiaccounts, play each on a different VilloFetch server.

As you may have noticed, I've started showing ads to fund the public server. I know this is annoying but your patience is what I ask in exchange for this free service.

Today I opened the public server to any url. It's just an experiment and it is not supposed to work so don't complain about it, but now you can type, for example, http://www.vfthis.net/www.wikipedia.org/

The VilloFetch public server (vfthis) has been down at the end of the current and the previous month because we reached the 2TB bandwidth limit imposed by our provider. This limit has now been increased to 3TB. This should keep us going for a while more...

VilloFetch is BACK!
I bypassed the Travian restrictions by means of a public free proxy: VilloFetch doesn't get the Travian pages directly, but it uses another server, so that our IP is disguised and the requests don't get blocked. The bad thing is that, being this a public free proxy, it is a bit slow and may not be up forever. Furthermore, as they find out about this proxy, they might decide to block that one too. So enjoy while it lasts! (or use a Secret Domain)

Secret Domain #1 is now up and running. See the "SecretDomains" section to join.

Apr 20, 2011

VilloFetch is no more. The Travian team has blocked access to all Travian servers from our IP Address, the result being the following error: "net.ghezzi.houdini.FetchException: org.apache.http.conn.ConnectTimeoutException". There's nothing we can do about it. If we move to a new server, they will quickly find out our new IP Address and block that one too. For more information see the forum

VilloFetch version 1.4.3

Jul 20, 2010

There has been a sudden increase in VilloFetch popularity recently. According to Google Analytics, pageviews have risen 20 times, from an average of 150k per day to almost 3 millions! We are closely monitoring our server in order to anticipate any overload, and we're getting increasingly worried: CPU load is constantly between 80% and 90%, which means that soon the server maximum capacity will be reached. We will probably have to invest in new servers. This is why from today we're asking for a small (2 USD) PayPal donation:
