    Default Technical Question @ mods/admins

    how much bandwith does ST use per month?

    and how much does it cost u guys?

    i know of a hosting service that offers:

    1 terabyte transfer per month at speeds of 3.7mbps

    and its only 10$ per month

    and considering the amount of advertisements and donation links, im sure u guys would get atleast 10$ a month from em

    just a thought, if ur interested, email me and ill send u the site link

    Mirror 2 is doing something like 900 gigs bandwidth in two days which would be 13TB's alone, and I can't tell on Mirror 1 since we are doing so much that apache is locking up trying to count. Mirror 2 does between 20mbps and 60mbps, Mirror 1 is 20mbps all the time.

    3.7 mbps would last us all of 10 seconds before it's all used up. 3.7 mbps will not go far.

    Mirror 1 = $180/m
    Mirror 2 = $370/m (Working on getting better deal)

    You really aren't getting anything back from the users huh?

    The bandwidth costs are just too much...

    You mentioned in another topic that no one was donating...so why not just shut down your download section for an indefinate period of time to gauge just how many people would be willing to stick to the site and not just because of free downloads?

    I suggest you put up a few more ads, clicksor or something...(I don't trust google adsense, I once had them and they froze my account at $110 for "invalid clicks" just before I was going to pay for the server, had to pay from my pocket...)

    Brian got terminated for the same reason. Not getting much of anything back. This is why I wanted to start some type of premium membership.

    I am going to see about more ads or different sponsors to help pay for things.

    omg google adsense did the same to me =\

    try clicksor, they pay at much lower denomiations or the newly created yahoo publisher beta

    tho yahoo pays at 100$ and you have to wait a long time =\

    I had troubles with Clicksor leading to pornography sites when I specifically chose not to include them though...

    Do a premium for anime shows or something...
