The STOS Coders website is brought to you by dedicated individuals, who give their time and knowledge free of charge. There are obviously some running costs for the web site, and if you feel you would like to contribute to those costs, please feel free to do so.
There are currently two main costs to running this site – there may be more in the future as the site grows, but these will be listed here as and when they arise.
Each year the domains have to be renewed so that the site can be reached from different addresses. Currently stoscoders.com and aozwizards.com are registered. It costs £16 (inc. UK VAT) per year per domain.
Each year the SSL certificates have to renewed. This ensures that visitors to the site can feel safe in the knowledge they are accessing a secure site. The SSL certificate also applies to the download area. It costs £30 (inc. UK VAT) per year per domain to maintain the certificate.
All donations will be used for the funding of the site. Anything left over we will ask our users via Facebook what they would like to do. This could be to donate the rest to Francois’ Patreon site, keep it safe for future costs, or maybe some merchandise – you will get to decide. We will show a list of all donations made, unless you or the amount given wish to remain anonymous – please let us know in your PayPal comments.
If you would like to contribute to the upkeep of the site, you can donate using the PayPal button below and select one of the predefined options. If you would like to donate a different amount, feel free to do so.
