I've been going through all my files and trying to organize a new NSF project folder on this PC. Seems like I'm getting interested in it again. Honestly, I ripped so many NSFs that I needed a break.

You are kicking ass Norbert and Karmic. Thanks so much.
Thanks to you, too. It's unbelievable just how much work you've done for the NSF ripping scene. Welcome back :)

My website is also down and I need a new host which I need to figure out where and then I'm either going to transfer the entire site or design a new one that's a little more lighter because I was using quite a lot of web space.

Thanks Karmic, much appreciated my friend.

It seems like we all do a metric ton of work and it's intellectually challenging as well.

It is always nice to see you back, master! ;)

Anyways... apparently this is yet ANOTHER different revision of a Cony fighter game.

How much space, and how much bandwidth do you expect per month? I need this in order to estimate the cost based on U.S. pricing of Amazon S3:
  • $0.09 per GB of data transfer
  • $0.28 per GB per year for storage
  • $0.40 per million hits (HTML, image, or NSF accesses)

I've never had to calculate costs before when I've had hosting before and I'm not saying it should be for free. What I'm saying is that I have to figure that out because I don't know precisely but I have a general idea.

Considering that the average NSF is 32KB and under. I have source code and packages as well of varying size. I have translation projects which don't take up that much space. It's the NSFs because people download them a lot and visit my site. I'd have to talk to Sliver-X about my website bandwidth usage, who gave me hosting for many years. I don't blame him for closing the doors and he gave me hosting for many many years. Thanks to him for sure.

I'm also willing to redesign my website and eliminate a lot of content so I can fit within acceptable perimeters for you.

The pitch is different in this FDS port what was in the NES cartridge release.

I talked to Sliver-X and he told me that I have about 300MB in files and pushed a couple GB a month in handwidth. And about 30,000 hits for all files. he says that based on that calculation it should be 5-10 a month.

It's going to about 400 MB because I see some stuff I can get rid of. I can trim it down more.

I was using a modified version of this .htaccess in order to reduce bandwidth and it helped a lot. I prevent all NSFs from being downloaded outside of the website. As well as any compressed file and any large file.

Just using S3 to host your site would run you less than $3 per year.
  • Storage: 0.4 GB times $0.28 per GB per year is $0.11 cents per year
  • Bandwidth: "a couple GB a month" (let's say 30 GB/year) times $0.09/GB is $2.70 per year

Is the price acceptable to you? I know you have a lot more stuff here at NESdev and the main site.

What I'm trying to say is that if you join AWS, set up an S3 bucket, and hook it up to a website, that's what it'll cost you (apart from $15/yr for a domain). I wasn't offering to host, just helping to recommend an existing hosting solution for people who don't need server-side scripting (Java, Python, PHP, etc.) or anything fancy like that.

I totally misunderstood because it sounded like you were going to help me based on this statement here.

I thought I was helping you by linking to the first page of Amazon's walkthrough to get a website up on S3. I wasn't sure what level of management service you needed on top of what the actual hosting costs.
