Once in a while, you get one of these annoying posts soliciting donations.
Usually, it will consist of me telling you why we are so great, and what we have achieved.
This post is different. After all, if you are a regular reader or someone who appreciates our work, then I assume you know why, and don’t need me to list the reasons.
You may have noticed that the site has been down, or inaccessible, for periods of time. That is because it has grown so much in terms of traffic in the last 6-8 months, that it has put a strain on our hosting provider and his ability to provide for us and his other customers. In fact, our provider said that Israellycool seemed to burst to the point where it would take almost all the resources!
Consequently, I have been forced to move to a new web hosting plan that costs 10 times the amount, since he had to migrate the server to a 4 core machine (instead of sharing an 8 core machine with 80 other customers).
Now that we have a private server, the site works better (as do the sites of all the provider’s customers!)
I am telling you all of this to let you know why I am asking for donations at this point in time. I do not feel comfortable doing so, especially while we are in this intensive war, and I certainly do not want to be perceived as somehow “milking” the conflict. But the expenses associated with the site have gone up so dramatically, that I feel I have no other choice if I want to continue the site and help it grow even further.
If you appreciate Israellycool and what we do, please donate using one of the Paypal options below.
All donations above $200 will entitle the donor to have, for a year, a banner on a Sponsors page I will be adding to the site (You could use this to advertise your business, if that is your preference).
Thanks to all donors so far:
