Gnarly-Repacks is requesting donations for the renewal bill for their site and I know FitGirl sporadically makes requests for donations as well. It makes me curious what range of expenses do sites like these incur and what they are.

I do vaguely recall The Pirate Bay 2013 documentary TPB AFK talking a bit about their revenue but I don’t know if they talked much about their expenses.

    It depends on a lot of things. Something self-hosted would just cost the power and Internet you are already paying for but if you’re renting the hosting and maybe even get development for your site it could cost a ton.
