Latest State of the Site Update

Postby bkasten » Tue Jul 20, 2010 4:04 pm

I just want to give a quick update of how things are going with our new provider and our current ad revenue arrangement.

We are now beyond two weeks with the new server and ISP, and I am happy to report that there have been no issues or outages due to the new ISP. We also have two backup systems to which be are backing up the database regularly, and the new server is giving us levels of performance we have not seen in years.

The ad revenues from Google adsense have now stabilized somewhat and are close to adequate to cover hosting costs. However, I have started to consider expanding into using an Amazon partnership which would give us added revenue when users of the DB purchase via links from our site.

An additional item of note: two standalone mobile versions of the HKMDB are under development and experimentation, and a simplified mobile version of the website should be available as a beta soon.

Questions and comments via email are invited: bkasten@octavian.net
