Default Re: Donating to LPF

To be honest, i also wonder: where does the money go?

$400 a month to host LPF sounds insanely expensive. I have no idea what things are hosted on, but $400 a month rents you 2 dedicated servers here, including 10 TB traffic each, 2 terabyte ssd drives each, and 2 hours of dedicated support monthly.

To be honest i think that is an insane amount of hosting requirement, and even a popular forum like this should require only a fraction of it.

That number should be up to an even $100 very soon now. :-)

Appreciate the forum.

Default Re: Donating to LPF

I guess that's a more realistic figure, though the links in that thread seem to be no longer working at this time.

Prices for hosting have come down a LOT in 10 years or so though. I remember paying $100 a month for a (dedicated) server with 100 GB traffic at rackshack about 10 or 15 years ago. Back then hosting in the US was cheaper compared to europe.

Nowadays this has come down to a tenth of that with a VPS even in europe. I guess you don't get the private hardware for that money, but you do get the performance, bandwidth and storage space.

Just getting 100 GB of diskspace, a terabyte of traffic and 2 gig of dedicated memory runs around 15 euros at the moment, a package that would probably meet the needs for LPF, though getting an hour or two of support a month ($80 each or so) would be worthwhile.
