Bandwidth...

Post by Pete » Fri Oct 08, 2004 8:03 am

This site is starting to get too popular!

This month, you guys exceeded my alloted 5GB of bandwidth, and I have to start paying ($.99 for every additional GB). When I checked this morning, this site was only 21 MB over the 5GB limit, but I'm sure there will be more traffic than that. So far, we're a whole $.02 over!

Honestly, the bandwidth is so cheap that I'll swallow the additional cost... unless this site gets too popular and I end up paying like $10 a month or something. I'll gladly pay the extra dollar, though.

Wow, I just got a bill for exactly $.02 ... and now the next month-long billing period has begun.

My two cents on this issue is that it's stupid to send someone a bill for just $.02. The processing costs will make you lose money, heheh.

I have a few sites that host (mostly) unlimited bandwidth/diskspace for free. One minute...

http://dhost.info/main.php -not unlimited, but 300 gb of bandwidth and 100 mb of disk space... Which may be the only problem.

http://www.1asphost.com/ -unlimited bandwidth but only 100 mb disk space...

http://www.propercomfy.co.uk/ -200 mb disk space, unlimited bandwidth

http://www.t35.com/ -unlimited bandwidth and space, but no mysql

http://www.zacknetwork.net/freehosting.htm -unlimited bandwidth and space.

All are free. But some don't have php, some don't have sql, etc. etc.
I have no sig.

The bandwidth here is cheap enough that I'm not even considering switching servers.

My server has 500MB free space, with PHP, MySQL, and 5GB a month of free bandwidth. And then it's only $.99 for each additional gigabyte of bandwidth. A great deal. It was a limited time offer from 1and1.com, and the deal lasts for three years.

My domain name cost me $5.99.

So the total amount of money I've spent on this site since I started it is $6.01, plus a lot of time.
