Thanks! I have about 200 GB SATA RAID on my primary server, but, I'm only using about 90 GB on it. I want to keep the rest for emergency space if needed. Plus, I didn't start with a storage VPS. I wish I did! It'd make the main site easier to manage. I have 1 storage entity right now, I am going to wait until it hits 150 GB and add a second one.This is awesome! I'm amazed by your growth and hope to achieve the same some day.
Again, awesome & congratz
Question; How much space do you allow per storage instance before adding a new one?
The load on the upload servers are very minimal because there's no script processing. That helps a lot. But, yeah. I agree. I would love a way to mass move older images without breaking old URLs, but, it is probably impossible because it's so intertwined with the main site. But, I have a stable server now.Your Welcome!
I feel you. I have "only" 30GB of images on the main server. I should also have started with a storage VPS instantly. Management of the mainsite takes forever! I'm currently looking for a way to move images from main server to an external storage server without breaking the url's (still without luck)
About the storage I was thinking about 50-100gb per instance to spread out the load even more, it must be a fine balance somewhere.
And +1 for GEOuploading, or atleast a selection of which server.
Ads aren't always successful when you do not use your market. I don't publish ads on my homepage. Never. There have been a great many studies about ads on homepage that intrude it. It reduces favor. If it's donors, it doesn't. I have a small ad on pages where images load, and it does fine. I am making enough to support the hosting costs. That is all that matters to me in this niche. The making over $1000 is kind of bull, imo. I am not going to spam my users with ads to try and force it and ruin their opinion and my reputation.Hello ashkir
That is amazing traffic but i not understand one thing. You said that you not like intrusive ads and your revenue is over 800$ at year. Why you not put adsense or you must write appeal for that. Why you not put other ad network? Can you imagine how much you can earn bro? With adsense i think you can earn over 1000$ monthly.
Is this only love to image hosting websites or ?
I ask that because i am confused why you use donations,because you can earn money from ads. Warm regards
My niche is stated on my site. I don't market. At all. It's all word of mouth. There's a nasty bug that's making some users sad but I can't figure it out though.To be frank, I haven't seen any image hosting site with this impressive growth rate in such a short time. If you don't mind, what is your primary source of traffic and also do you spend much on marketing?
