Server bandwidth increased Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I just got word from the web host that our bandwidth has been increased from 300GB/month to 1000GB/month. Unfortunately they have also upped the price to 708€/year Mad

I checked their site but they only offer 1 cheaper option atm, and that only has 100GB/month which is certainly not enough to run the site. I already had to implement the low quality MP3's and download restrictions to stay within 300MB...

So I'm going to scratch the extra cash together. This means that from next month on we will have LOADS of bandwidth to burn! Dance

I can probably:
- remove the 5 tracks restriction for guests, or up it to 10 tracks
- stream all tracks in full quality, instead of in 90kbps versions
- host videos Shocked

I'm already getting crazy ideas like making tutorial videos of mixing tricks etc Pleased

I will have to be very careful with my expenses this month as I will have to cough up 300 euro extra before the end of the month. It would have been nice if they would have warned me a bit more in advance instead of just dropping the bomb on me like that :-/

You got my full support!

Video´s would be a cool thing to get some more attention, but there´s youtube for that. Maybe you could allow people to add bigger attachments to their postings and then especially in a sample(pack)/preset thread, that has proven to be a crowd pleaser on some other forums about DnB and production in general.

I've increased the playback quality of the MP3's in the flash player to 130kbps VBR (used to be 100kbps VBR) for all members and guests. This is only for new tracks that are uploaded from now on, but I might convert the whole backlog some day Smile

People that have donated will get the original audio in the player, up to 320kbps depending on the original quality.
