VSP hosting and Donations
As the site grows, so does it's bandwidth and media content and for that reason I'm considering VSP hosting. Currently the site is parked and hosted on the Axiom http://axiompiercing.com site's shared hosting plan. If I was going to break down the yearly cost of the archives it would be $15 for underground-archives.com domain, $15 for the iowaunder.com domain and then if I split the hosting cost down the middle it would be around $60.00 a year. For a grand total of $120.00 a year.
If I moved the site to a VSP it would be around $300.00 a year. VSP would have a lot of advantages including faster page loads, Video hosting, and avoiding a repeat of what happened last year when we were kicked off of our host provider for bandwidth uses. It is really the next logical step in the growth and security of the site but I can't take on the finical responsibility at this point.
So I'm asking for donations through Paypal not only to cover some of the current cost but with the goal of raising at least $300.00 to move the archives to VSP hosting. Just click on the button below and enter the amount you wish to donate. I've also created a buy DaVo a Guinness button for those that want to give me a little for maintaining and building the site.
