Webserver Controls

Post by Frozenport »

Recently, my http site has experienced a massive surge in traffic (~1000%)...

While this isn't necessarily bad; I have been financing the server with Google Ad-Sense...


This is where the problems begin --> my monthly bandwidth usage is becoming increasingly difficult to support...

Specifically, does anybody have any suggestions? I am not, personally, opposed to having more people access my website, but it must be financially sustainable...

Your best bet is to look around for a better deal on your hosting. I offer hosting but it may not be what you want. Depending on your financial status and what it currently costs you for your hosting, it may be viable to get a dedicated server, but this is highly cost dependant.

If you want to know my hosting deals, let me know, but remember that since I do not use apache/iis, there is no control panel as such. You only get a mail (if you want mail) control panel and phpMyAdmin. Webserver and ftp changes have to go through me.

Well, I need a Google Ad Sense to pay ~15 USD per month to support this growth.


I think i'm going to need like 800GB per month and 40gig storage...
Yet, does anybody have a solution or maybe some anti-leach protection?

My server has anti leech protection, but any hosting with, say, cpanel, should give you the option of anti leech protection.
