*note: I am not asking you to increase the bandwidth*
I understand that increase in server space will cost more, but how does bandwidth exactly affect the frihost revenue?
I mean, its just that people are accessing or downloading something from the site.
How does it increase the operating costs?
Is that why you are restricting to 10 gb?
Please explain wrt frihost( dont point me towards wikipedia)
Bandwidth costs money, actually a lot of it. However we currently have enough bandwidth, so the limit is rather meant to be a resource one. (it is if you have a very busy forum like frihost taking more than 10GB per month you shouldn't be hosting it here)
We had a download limit at our previous internet 'ticket' (dont know the good english word)
I believe u can see the bandwidth upload limit also as something you pay for
it has to go through some form of media. The quickest being fibre optic which is very expensive and the costs need to be recovered.
1kb file eing downloaded down a 1kb/sec fibre. This means 1kb will flow per second which means in 60 seconds 60kb etc etc. In total this fibre will provide 2419200 kb per month (2GB). This is small so more and more fibre will be required costing more.
The 1kb was just to demonstrate, its actually a lot higher
This means that the Fibre Optics are rented by frihost from another company specializing in bandwidth stuff?
Oh Ok then I understand
*scratching my head*
Usually people make money with free hosting through the advertisements on the site. We don't have to put them on our site, but notice how these forums and the frihost site have ads? That's how lots of them do. I'm not sure about frihost exactly though.
