Thank you for ideas..

I dont make the same mistake again like years ago. I learned from my mistakes years ago.

Current state:
How do you do that? Can you post a shot of your daily visitor/impressions count?

Finaly we got again our 8800 Uploads. With investing lot of money for advertisement. I also upgraded the top Thread.
We are back in business, now better!



Hello Community!

After one year deadline and after half a million uploads. The Site is back in performance.

Website URL: http://wi.to




I had an idea to try something new on my Dedicated Server. So i saw the Chevereto script and wanna try new things! Wito could be possible the new Big Image Hoster in the German, Austria and Swiss Scene. Porn Hosting is allowed.

In the next Weeks or Months, i wanna try to advertise the Site with AdWords and other Networks like YieldAds.

Regards
Tunny
Do not try to put adsense on your site at all, because i see your site allow adult images.That is my warm and friendly suggestion because your ads will be banned forever.

Today a lot of errors has been fixed. We had some issues with our opcache system.
Also updated SSL errors.

Everything should work now without problems.
Thank you for using Wi.to.

Wi.to lost for some reason 70% of the traffic from the past months.

Starting with advertising the next weeks.

Somebody had mentioned here about to not put adsense on website.Ok that is true if you have adult images do not put ads on image page.But you can put ads on front page without a problem.

if a site does contain mostly adult images, then it's better to use the consent alert function, to warn the visitors that this site may contain adult content and you can put so adult ones are blurred and hidden as NFSW or w.e it's called

I'm trying to understand this, but my head is not really wrapping around this. I'm sorry and don't seem to sound ignorant, but surely with the visitors you are receiving you are making some money. I think after 3 years of operating your business, if you haven't found a way to properly monetize it, you're doing something wrong. On your website you mention that it's due to China blocking your website, if that's the case and your traffic has significantly dropped than so should your 'server' needs and requirements. If that's not really the reason and only for your visitors, than their is something wrong.

I would suggest finding a firm or company or someone who can look at things from a different angle for you. Find a way to monetize your visitors, might require additional scripting to add features and things people can buy. There are many ways you can monetize a website.

As far as server costs and operational costs, I'm not sure what you're website was currently making. But if it was making at least $400-$500, that would have been sufficient to continue running.

Intel Xeon Quad Core E3-1270 v3 with 4 cores / 8 threads @ 3.5 GHz (3.9 GHz Turbo), 8 MB cache
Supermicro X10SLD-F
Supermicro 8-Sled Microcloud
3 x 1 Gbps (Public, Private, IPMI)
16 GB DDR3
2 x 120 GB SSD
100 TB (That's approx 3.33TB/day) and it's $10/per additional TB added to the server.

C$193.70
That there can handle a lot of traffic. It's $200/month CAD... even less in USD. So if you are making at least $150/USD (which you should) from your site, than hopefully you can find a way to keep your site running. I hate to see a website that someone has built and put time and effort towards go down like that. If there is a will, there is a way.

Cheers my friend!
