Bandwidth and storage are always a big issue with sites that focus on delivering this type of content. I know on sites that may have one movie or a couple of MP3s, that they use a lot of bandwidth. So how do you create a site that is only delivering MP3s, Flash cartoons, or movies? How do you keep your bandwidth and storage in check?
It is hard to really get people to pay for these sites. Some Flash toon sites get mega traffic and it looks like they are only operating on ad revenue. So have any of you know if they make money or are these types of sites destined to live with a loss?
What about streaming. How does this impact bandwidth? I have seen that on the sites where I stream media that it takes about as much of a hit in bandwidth as a download site. Does it get better as a site gets larger?
So what’s your experience?
What I want to know is how http*//www.homestarrunner.com makes money. Is this simply self-funded? Its very popular and is all toons, no ads. They do sell a few things. And if for some reason that link ever goes down, its a site that is 100% flash, and its toon humor, but no ads.
I just dont get it.
