    Default Bandwidth Question

    Hey guys, right... i don't know much about web hosting or servers. But i want to know how much would it cost Tazmo if he really does have however many members he says he has, and if they all downloaded the manga each week?

    I did a rough calculation, and if every member downloaded a 4mb zip it'd be equal to 1.6 terrabytes a week. Of course i doubt every member is active, so you can probably half, or even quarter that to get a rough estimate the bandwidth used a week... which would eventually make it atleast a terrabyte a month considering how many weeks are in a month.

    How much does that sort of hosting cost, if Tazmo REALLY does have that many members?

    thanks

    fdc has some unmetered servers.. for around 200$ you can get a 100mbit port unmetered


    but they obviously have a legal backup if someone abuses their services

    i doubt that there are 100,000+ real members... half of that is possible but if there were 100,000 members i'm sure the guy hosting the the sites for free would have dropped them already

    1.6 terrabytes a week isn't horrible but frankly im sure it would be MUCH higher cause every week each member would use much more than 4mb, just browsing the site and getting the new episode(s) or manga chapters.

    The average bandwidth per user is probably closer to 160mb on weeks with releases, and like 2-12 on weeks w/o releases of the anime but with releases of the manga, and if both released same week ,well you can do the math.

    well since i'm not a plus member i just use bittorrent for the episodes...

    since their website seems to be hosted for free and in a given week i only download around 10mb ...
