Do you find my tutorials and CCNAv6 (http://ccnav6.com/) site useful? Please consider supporting it especially if you use ad-blocker. It is hard to keep the site running when so many people block ads.
For a long time, we used ads on the site. However, many of our readers block ads. As a result, I am unable to cover bandwidth, hosting, and other costs. I do not want to prevent readers with an ad blocker accessing CCNAv6 with nagware or begware. It is your personal right to use adblockers. So I need your help. The way Patreon works is a fan or reader can donate whatever they want per month, and the donation is recurring each month after that. So anything, from $1/month up, is hugely helpful to the situation.
Why donate money?
CCNAv6.com is free of cost and doesn’t generate any direct sort of income. It is funded by advertising, sponsoring and donations and although it is financially supported by its own community of users.
How much should you give?
The donations we receive range from a single dollar to a couple of hundreds. The important thing for people is to give something, and for us it’s to generate the income that will let us work and succeed on this project, month after month. If you want to help, and if you can do so, please make a donation to the project and encourage others to do so.
What is the long-term plan regarding the funding of CCNAv6?
We believe CCNAv6 can gather the momentum and the community necessary to fund itself entirely through donations, sponsoring and advertisement without the need to engage in commercial activities and without focusing our attention on anything else than improving the distribution itself.
What I will use the money for:
Hosting – I need a good hosting server plan to support all traffic get at CCNAv6.
Internet and CDN Bandwidth – I need a robust CDN for serving static content faster with SSL enabled option. This also includes my home office ADSL2 and 4G LTE bandwidth.
DNS hosting – I need a stable DNS hosting.
Email hosting/routing – I need a stable email hosting to send out email newsletters.
Me – I need to continue to eat food and support CCNAv6 operation. 40+ to 50+ hours is taking out too much time. Apart from food and rent, I need to pay for insulin and other diabetic medicine too. Even though my needs are minimal, I need to help myself too.
