    When I first started FreewareBB I did so from a home computer connected to my own internet provider. This was a simple connection but wasn't tailored to serve a website to the world, and as the months went on, the site became busier.

    As such, we now have to host the site on professional servers to keep up with the demand for our services. These cost's can be considerable at times, and although we display ads to generate revenue to pay for these services we don't always raise enough to cover the costs and so I personally fund the balance.

    By donating to FreewareBB, you can help ensure that we are able to pay for the future services we have to use and keep the site alive. Also, as we think of new and exciting additions for the site and as members and visitors suggest them, we sometimes have to request the services of experienced programmers or web designers which can be costly (which is why we don't do it often) but with future donations we can plan ahead and introduce a whole host of additional features to help all our users enjoy the site even more!.

    We would never ask for anyone to donate an amount they couldn't afford and we understand not everyone is able to donate, we only ask that you consider donating (no matter how small or large) if able to do so, whether it's a few pence (cents) or a few pounds (dollars). All donations are greatly received ;)

    To make a donation please use the 'Donate' button which you will find on any download link page.

    Kind Regards
    Marko and The FreewareBB Team
