    How much does your site cost you.

    How much do your sites cost you per month? Like hosting charges, extra bandwidth, legal issues, research or whatever?

    I think its only about $106 a month in hosting charges, then charges for about a few domains.


    Then there is my time which costs alot I guess, But I guess I don't use my time constructively either.

    Like MMJ I am also a full time student.

    It would have been cool if you included a poll. My site costs $10 a month, plus $27/year for domains (two domains at 000domains.com). And then vBulletin, which is now $25 every year after I just payed the $160 lifetime license ownership fee.

    Nearly nothing for hosting fees...but a LOT when it comes to time spent on my new redesign (eventually I'll get it done!).

    Site 1: $100 USD/year hosting, $50 CDN/year domain shared among 5 people

    Site 2: $20 US/month hosting , $13.95 US/year domain... I think that's what I paid

    Site 3: $10 US/month hosting... $20 US domain I think... forget what I paid for that... (it was free for the first year - seems like a lot of people got that deal)

    So total /year is $518.95 USD total, 418.95 for me personally. Plus, of course, the obligatory time and effort which is of much more value

    Scotty:

    His site probably doesn't use much bandwidth. He says he gets around 1-3,000 uniques a day. Although that may seem like a lot (and it is), it isn't enough to go past a virtual hosting account. But, if your site was full of graphics (which his isn't), then you would need a better hosting account or maybe even a dedicated server.

    My site gets 3-5,000 uniques a day, and certainly has more graphics because of its nature (funny pictures), but yet it has only used 4.146 gigabytes this month, less than half my alloted bandwidth (after multiplying it by two because it's half way through the month) for $10 a month. (I get 20 GB in bandwidth every month.)

    Marc: I thought it was $35 a year for renewed vBulletin Members Area access?

    Anyway, my site (MovieForums) costs me time more than anything else...not including the cost of vBulletin, and some hiring I did to help with the relaunch. I do think it'll start making me some dough soon, though.
