Keeping this service up and providing these facilities at a decent speed in
the next months requires hiring a fast
dedicated server and a huge internet bandwidth which cost me US $3,192 per year, what is certainly more
than I can personally afford. If you wonder why a so expensive server is
required, here you have a few data from 2015:
Total number of queries to the database: 1,576,814,037
Total traffic: 8.29 TB (Terabytes)
Total number of propagation warnings E-Mails sent: 420,328
Pages served per second: Up to 45 pages/second during the summer months.
Database queries per second: Up to 160 queries/second.
Data transfer per second: Up to 13.18 Megabytes/second
Maximum number of propagation warnings E-Mails per day: 3,167
If you really like DXMAPS.COM and want it to continue being available in the
next months I would appreciate some kind of donation.
Any donation, even as little as US $10, will help, but please also consider
becoming an official "supporter user" for as little as US $20 /
When you donate at least US $20 / 20€ you will get the status of DXMAPS.COM "supporter
user" and in return you will get the following privileges for a
period of one year:
Your callsign will appear remarked on a yellow background on the maps
Your callsign will have priority and will be shown on the maps on top of
other stations in your own grid square. If there are other supporter users
in your square then the priority will be shared and the report shown will be
the latest at the time the map is generated.
Unlimited number of queries to the DX database
Unlimited number of queries to the Callbook and locator database
Unlimited number of E-Mails with propagation warnings
Unlimited number of DX spots sent
Unlimited number of queries to the HF and VHF calendar
Unlimited use of the DX Atlas and the EME calculator
Furthermore, you will be making possible the implementation of new
features in the future.
How to make your donation:
here to donate on-line at FastSpringusing a secure server
and pay it with your credit card or other payment methods, available
depending on your country. This is the preferred method to receive the
donations from USA residents. Europeans, notice that you can be charged VAT
if using this FastSpring payment service.
