Well the ad money goes directly to his host, so yes, his ads are paying for the hosting, not Tazmo.

Well one dozen would be $2400 a month, now that doesn't even include the donations and PLUS members, also the profits from DirectManga.
Considering the fact that he is really only 3-4 times bigger than StopTazmo that would mean he is still racking in around $800 per month off of ads alone, and most likely alot more due to his ads being on his main page along with 2 pop-ups per reload.
I know for a fact running NarutoFan's site and forums do not require anything more than a Dual Xeon, which can come starting at $140 per month, especially for German bandwidth which I see is very cheap, especially when Tazmo claims to co-locate his servers, that means he is only paying for bandwidth as his host already has rack space in the datacenter for his previous servers.
