To reduce costs of hosting our website; Fairies Dreams & Fantasy must run ads to reduce the burden of using credit cards. However; we do have an ad-free subscription for only our premium section of our website. Be aware; we use ads to help reduce costs, and make our content free for people who don’t want to subscribe to our website.
The Purpose Of Running Ads On Our Website
Here are the following purposes when running ads on our websites. These purposes are listed and detailed.
Reducing Costs For Viewers Who Consume Our Content
As you visit Fairies Dreams & Fantasy, you see banner ads placed above our content. Think about an ad what you see on a local newspaper. Newspaper publishers use advertisements to reduce costs of printing materials. If you were running your own website with ads; you are keeping your content free for anyone around the world. Anyway, we use ads to reduce the burden of handling credit cards. However; we implemented our own decentralized ad server for our own ads to be hosted by independent companies, individuals, or organizations. This is also key to keep at least 80% of our ad revenues, cutting away the middleman. Our advertising facility is set to be reliable than only using 1 ad network.
If we didn’t implement ads in te first place; our website will only have walled gardens. Nobody want walled gardens! We prefer to keep our content for anyone of all ages. Citizens in poverty, but have an ability to access the internet via public libraries should have access to Fairies Dreams & Fantasy as a way to be entertained with text-based content what we write. Having open access to our content is key to enabling the poor to enjoy our content.
Having Fairies Dreams & Fantasy open is like enabling anyone to enter fairground without needing to pay a dime. Ads are kind of like banners what companies promote their products/services,–or even engaging content. It’s almost like featuring free amusement rides for everybody,–NOT JUST FOR CHILDREN!!
Pay For Costs Of Our Servers Hosted By A Company What We Support
Fairies Dreams & Fantasy heavily relies on green hosting companies like GreenGeeks and other hosting companies who care about our planet, or our internet freedom. Our servers are NOT free for us to host our website; we have to pay for monthly costs; just like renting a condo! Our servers need periodic servicing, maintenance, and other other factors. These servers are expensive, and they do take lots of energy to run.
Servers don’t grow on trees!
Maintenance Of Our Equipment
Sometimes, we have to maintain our machinery like upgrading RAM, replacing disks, and other parts of our computers. We need to maintain these machines for them to work properly.
If any of our computers fail, or stop working,–or even damaged by other means; we must have enough resources to cover replacement of our machines.
Costs Of Networking Hardware
We heavily rely on internet each day as a way to post new content, and even publish ebooks via our desired platform accounts. We must have enough resources to cover costs of replacing networking hardware, or improving our network as a way to enable our wireless machines to be connected to the internet like a normal system.
If our networking hardware fails; we can easily replace a damaged unit with a new unit. Redundancy is key to keep our machines active.
Internet speed is necessary to help reduce time for uploading large number of files. This is key for us to update our digital products, text-adventure games, CSS files, and other assets.
We must pay for our internet costs as a way to cover costs of running our servers on the internet. However; we must have enough revenue to pay for this important expense. Internet isn’t free, we must pay for it. Even if we use a public library for accessing the internet, we must rely on efforts to keep our site active, and update our content on a regular basis.
We’ve implemented our strategic setup of placing ads above, or inside content by only having a max of 3 ads, but reduce them to either 1 or 2 ads per page.
