Keeping this service up and providing these facilities at a decent speed in
the next months requires hiring two
dedicated servers and a huge internet bandwidth, what together with the required
licenses, domain registration and SSL certificates cost me US $5,021 per year, what is certainly more
than I can personally afford. If you wonder why a so expensive servers are
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 $23
When you donate at least US $23 or 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.
Up to 50 queries per day 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.

I just made a donation of $23 dollars using PayPal.
I am already a life member but wanted to donate addition to support the great work you do.
Suggestion: That you have a donation option where we can put in any amount ... I planned to donated $100 have noticed a lot of time that the website isn't available. Perhaps there is a way to donate a larger amount in another section of the website?
I suspect the over whelming popularity of the site causing excess traffic for the server/bandwidth available. I hope donations and new subscribers will allow you to rectify this problem soon with new server or bandwidth changes.
Muchas Gracias Amigo!
