This option is mostly here because I don’t have a huge amount of money and appreciate a few extra bucks very much! Now it’s not like I depend on donations to pay for a living, I do not strictly need more money. Donating will pay for the website, for the huge amounts of coffee that keep me going and the extra game or two to fill my Steam library. At the moment I’m also saving up for a new SSD.
No part of the guide will ever be locked behind of a paywall. Donators will be granted the rank Coffee Patron on our Discord as well as my eternal gratitude but no substantial features beyond that.
If you cannot or will not donate, that is absolutely fine. You are not being a horrible person. Treat yourself to a nice pot of coffee and enjoy the guide!
I have the domain (thephoenixflavour.com) running via Namecheap, at 11,38€/year.
Namecheap is also my current hoster. I’m using the Stellar plan which allows me to set up plenty of MySQL databases and subdomains which is a huge quality of life upgrade for the website. This enable me to create multiple copies of the website and work on them for a longer time before pushing big changes to the main URL.
The costs are 13,54€ for the first year and 27,08€ for all subsequent years.
With the money donated so far, the website costs for 2019 are 100% covered. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
