Question ATTN: SBW Staff = $330 per month?

Hi guys.
I mean no disrespect at all but I was just curious what makes a site cost so much to run. I have my own domain, etc. and it only costs $60 per year. I know, I know, mine is a weenie little personal page but I am just curious. I am thinking of starting a kickboxing site so just wondered where the costs come from.

Below is a list of the fees we pay to keep Sportbike World alive. None of the Sportbike World staff (including myself) recieve any money for running the community.

1. Servers: $285 per month
2. VBulletin Forum Software: $185 per year
3. Registration for other software on the website: $350 per year

Total cost to run Sportbike World each month: $330

I wish we could get away with running a $60 per year account. But with the amount of visitors we get daily we need multiple servers to run Sportbike on.

I too am curious, have you ever figure out the average cost per post on this site? ( or cost per 100 posts ).

Unfortunatly that would be impossible to figure out as there are so many different variables that go into each post.

You mean like how many posts are useless attempts at increasing post counts?
