I know that you’re wondering why my hosting account is eating up much bandwidth when in fact my blog is only catering 2,000 to 3,000 visitors per day. In my post, “Should You Afraid of Having High Traffic Blog?“, some of you dropped your comments which trigger me to write this post:
azrin: Hmmn. Reminds me when it hit 3000 a day, but my bill was just the same. In other words, alot of reseller Webhosts are ripoffs. If you have that kinda problem, I’ll sponsor yr site. 300GB/mth is chicken feed for us.
Jake: i found out that you already have 2500 to 3,000 viewers per day. Do you think, this is stable already?
One (1) year ago, I was confused on what to do while looking at the traffic stats of my blogs.
Blogs? Why blogs and not blog?
Last year I purchased a regular hosting account at ploghost.com and run my main blog, the SELaplana on March 2006. After several months of its existence the traffic increased constantly. However, I was not contented on the increase of the traffic. So on November 2006, I started a Songs Lyrics blog.
The Songs Lyrics blog is just a bait to gain visitors for the SELaplana blog because I know that there are tons of users who are interested on lyrics. After 1 month of running a lyrics blog, few hundreds of visitors were started to visit my main blog.
Another few months past, the two blogs started to eat more bandwidth, thus forced me to upgrade my hosting account for several times. Until one (1) day, I decided to upgrade my ordinary hosting account to reseller account. In other words, I started selling hosting accounts, not to other users but to my self. After several months, I added two more blogs through my own reseller hosting, and they are the: Motoristang Pinoy, and the Naruto Shippuuden Fan.
Actually, there are more or less 10 blogs that are hosted by my own reseller host but among these 10, only four (4) of them got my interest:
- SELaplana – currently has more or less 5,000 pageviews
- Songs Lyrics – currently has more or less 4,000 page views
- Naruto Shippuuden Fan – currently has more or less 2,000 pageviews
- Motoristang Pinoy – currently has more or less 50 pageviews
And these four blogs consume more than 60GB bandwidth per month.
By the way, just few days ago, I upgraded my account at the Ploghost Hosting Solution from Reseller Pro to Reseller Enterprise with features as shown below:
On the Sponsor Offer
I wonder if the offered hosting-sponsor as quoted above is a serious offer or just a joke. Whatever… Thank you so much for the offer.
But I just can’t leave my current host for reasons such as:
- I don’t find any problems with my current host.
- I am currently contented on the hosting packages offered by the company. Consider reading my posts: What Makes A Webhost Better than the Other?, and Best Webhost For Your Best Blogs.
The amount of bandwidth limit you offered is very much interesting. But I just can’t gamble with the new company that I don’t know much about it. I’m so sorry for that.
The SELaplana blog, just like what I said above, currently has more or less 5,000 pageviews per day or more or less 2,000 daily visitors. I still don’t know if it’s already stable. What I only know is that for 3 weeks already, the blog receive that number of daily visitors.
Anyway, I consider 50% of the visitors who visited our blog as seasonal visitors. So, maybe after a month, the traffic will drop. But if I can hit the 1,500 mark of feed subscribers by the end of October 2007, I think the drop of traffic can be avoided because I will try my best to let my feed subscribers personally visit this blog. That’s the advantage when you have thousands of feed subscribers.
I think, after reading my post “Should You Afraid of Having High Traffic Blog?“, you now understand why I love to see my blog catering thousands (or millions) of daily visitors and feed subscribers.
