The server migration is complete. Keep in mind things may need to be optimized for performance still so consider this a beta stage.
Please make sure you are joining the server using the address thestonepubmc.com, if you are connecting using a regular IP then it will try to connect to the old server. If you are still having problems try:
1. If Windows 7: Click Start Menu and type ipconfig /flushdns, then hit enter
2. If Windows 7 or 8: Press the windows key on your keyboard and the letter R at the same time to bring up the Run prompt, then type ipconfig /flushdns, and hit enter.
3. If you are on a Mac and know how to bring up a terminal window: follow this article.
4. Finally, if all of those don't work: connect using 220.127.116.11

In order to comply with Mojang's EULA changes the permissions on The Stone Pub server have been changed drastically.
I apologize to all that have donated but there are no longer any paid ranks such as VIP, Super, and Epic. You can thank Mojang for that. I appreciate the donations you have made and it has helped tremendously to pay for the server rental fees. To make it clear to some individuals; I am not offering refunds, the money was a donation and it has already been spent towards the server. If you threaten me or the server I will likely be banning you.
The good news is that there are now purchasable (with in-game money) commands on the server where anyone can rent or buy commands to give themselves more abilities. This is a positive perk for the people that did not donate, but may be disappointing for those who have donated for rank. I plan on having more and more commands available to rent/buy as we go, it should make things more interesting and make the in-game economy better. In the future there may be a ranking system where you earn a rank as you go and earn money and experience for each rank up.
You can purchase commands in-game by typing /skill list.
