Damm Guys
I run a Large website http://www.dlrarmy.com
and I get 25 thousand page views a day and 120 thousand Unique Visitors a month.
Our hosting bill is 250 dollars for a server (we need one... every host I have been with we have just chewed up their server)

Well now that ad business has went south... I think I may have to close the website.
I just can't afford to pay for th hosting anymore. I tried a few things after amazingmedia kicked me off.. Like CJ and Bulkclicks.com but I cannot even make a dent in my hosting.

Does anyone have an alternative or know of any solutions?

Skills That Thrill.

I took a look at your site. What I would suggest doing is first of all reducing a lot of those images. Your logo for example, I was able to make it half the size it currently is without noticing any degradation of quality.

As for cheap servers you could use I am not to savvy when it comes to high bandwidth servers, someone else will have to give input on that. But to help people give you that advice you may want to tell us how much badwidth (gigs) a month your server uses.

As for better streams of revenue I saw you didn't have any search boxes on your site. SearchTraffic.com is my best revenue stream, maybe you could try them out with a combination of text links.

Also, are you selling newsletter advertising?
What about finding an affiliate and selling Van Halen CDs?

Just some ideas (naive ones at that)

Hope it all works out
