website data transfer fees!

Post by Diedel » Sun Aug 13, 2006 7:41 am

Holy crap! I just found out that I have paid 282€ during the last 8 months for data transfers as my D2 site's transfer limit constantly got exceeded, and I didn't notice (my fault). If I had bought regular web space from my ISP (the current space is included in my DSL account), I'd have paid 160€/year for 2.5 times the webspace and 6 times the transfer limit!

I could even have moved the most frequently accessed stuff to another web account I have which also has a higher monthly transfer limit.

DANGIT! :evil: :cry:

Never mind, it's my fault. I didn't check the bills for 8 months (just trusted everything was alright). Can you say 'stoopid'? Thank you. :x

why don't you send all D2X-XL download requests to sourceforge? Save your bandwidth for levels and textures.... :)

kind of like free hosting w/ mirrors :)

I know, but I just wasn't aware that I had so many downloads. Anyway, the issue is resolved. I have enough bandwidth now, and d2x-xl is on SF.net. :)
