Any tip simply goes back into the cost of the website.
I just got Traitorscomic.com up and running for the first time, I got a good deal getting 3 years and my domain for about $250. Hosting requires you to pay the sum all up front instead of per month. I'll be using Ko-fi primarily as donations to help keep my website affordable.
