The server costs can be broken down as follows:
- Heroku (Where the server runs): ~$15.00
- DigitalOcean (Where the images are hosted): $5
- Domain costs: $5 ($60 yearly)
As a stretch goal I would like to add Redis to my stack, which is a caching database. Starting at $9 a month.
Workshop.codes is a website that allows you to find and share Overwatch Workshop codes. The Workshop community is tiny. With this website I hope to provide a platform that brings the creators and players a little closer.
On average a website is 2MB in size and makes over 70 requests. That's huge. Workshop.codes is less than 250KB and makes less than 15 requests. Let's keep it that way.
I want to keep Workshop.codes ad free, but the server costs are starting to climb. Ads are obtrusive, slow, and often times malicious. With your support I can continue to run the website completely ad free.
