I need some opinions about this issue.....
Currently I'm running a Vbulletin fourm that take up to around say 13 GB per month. Around 3million hits per month..
I'm on the personal package at Aletia, which provides 10GB bandwidth per month.
At Aletia, the most I can get is 15 GB for essential package.
Finding advertisement deals or hosting sponsers are quite impossible these days...
So what are my options here? Any hint or tip on optimizeding VBB? or how to generate some income from this kind of dicussion forum?
We've always ran a forum without banners and stuff, and its just costing to much anymore to run, so we are thinking about taking donations, and our loyal members have said they'd donate enough for our own dedicated server if we wanted it
