How do you feel about the fund raising currently going on?

I was a little shocked by the email I got explaining that TA pays $80/month. Hostgator.com is a well-regarded hosting service that would charge $10.36 a month for unlimited bandwidth with a yearly commitment.

"$12 per domain per year renewal x 5 domains= $60 (USD)" Just curious: what are the other four domains?

We are on a hosted platform that enables all our features, content support, and supports a large member base with integration, backup 24/7 support and bandwidth. It's not a simple server hosting. We have over 18k members and thousands of articles, forum posts, blogs, pictures, videos, mp3's, etc.so it also has great backup protection.

The domains are ThinkAtheist.com, Ithinkatheist.com, Wethinkatheist.com, ThinkAtheistradio.com and Reallythink.info.

I see. That does make sense, I suppose, though I don't know what Hostgator charges extra for all the features you need. I run several membership sites using CCBill to manage membership, but of course that's because I am charging for memberships. I run nothing server side. Hostgator's support (via live chat no less) is 24/7 and is first-class. Might be worth a price comparison anyway if you haven't done one.

Its impressive running a site like this for less than 2000. It's a looooot of work keeping it as well organized as it is on a very low budget.

I have often wondered how they have managed to run TA for so long without fundraising before now. I think the charges are very reasonable giving the scope of the site and what it offers. If 10% of the membership gave $1 then the costs are covered.

I agree! Can't we all forgo a latte now and then to support this amazing site? I know I certainly will. It's the cost of doing business. Plain and simple.
