No. Unlike most server owners I do this for fun and for my love of the game, not for profit.
All donations and proceeds from shop sales are held in a PayPal account where it will be used to supplement a percentage of electricity bills. Any remaining balance is put back into the server in the form of spares, upgrades, and replacement parts when required.
The ZonkedCompanion Server runs within a Linux Hyper-V environment on a headless HP ProLiant DL380 G7 enterprise grade server with dual Intel Xeon 8-core X5647 processors, 64gb ECC RAM, and 8x 15K RPM hot swappable SAS drives in a RAID 10 array. Delivering extreme performance and reliability. The server features dual power supply redundancy, and both the server and WAN connections are protected by a 1.5KVA un-interruptible power supply in the event of a local power outage. So even when the lights go out or a hard disk fails, you can continue playing none the wiser!
This all costs a lot to run and maintain, so if you want to help support the server then any donations or shop purchases
will be greatly valued and spent wisely.
Currently as of October 2020 the server is using 4.69kWH per day which equates to around 63p. (Roughly £4.50 per week).
A single replacement HPE 15k rpm hard drive costs around £250.
