JKHub is run entirely by volunteers. We currently do not have any paid ads, anywhere. We're not part of any company, and we make no profit. Unfortunately, keeping JKHub online costs money, which is why we desperately need any donations we can get.
What does JKHub need my money for?
Here are just some of the things we need to pay for every year:
- Web hosting, to make sure our site stays online for free
- Our Content Delivery Network, which ensures you get acceptable download speeds no matter where in the world you are
- Renewal of the licenses to the software we use, so we can stay up to date, prevent security issues, and roll out new features when they become available
- Renewal of our domain name, to make sure it doesn't expire
In total, these cost several hundreds of dollars every year.
Frequently asked questions
Q: What's the exact amount of money you need every year?
A: The amount fluctuates due to the CDN charging per bandwidth and storage. To give you an indication, however: it's very unlikely to be below $300 total.
Q: Is my money actually going towards JKHub?
A: Yes. We will use your donations only to benefit JKHub. The money goes to our business PayPal account.
Q: Which payment methods do you accept?
A: Thanks to Paypal, you can donate using Mastercard/Eurocard, Visa/Delta/Electron, Discover, American Express, Switch/Maestro, Solo, and Paypal.
Q: I can only spare XYZ, should I still donate?
A: Definitely. We certainly do not expect one person to pay for all of our costs, and can use anything we can get.
Q: Do I get anything special from donating?
A: All we can offer is an achievement on the forum, which will show as a badge next to your avatar. This is for people that donate $100 USD or more. It's not much, but it shows your support! Be sure to include your username in the note of the donation so we know who to give the award to. If you forget, message a staff member or use the contact form.
Q: Can I specify which part of JKHub, or which specific cost, my money should go towards?
A: No. Sorry.
Q: Is JKHub a registered Non-profit or charitable organization?
Q: Do you need donations right now?
