    Hello Guys,


    I have one simple question. I want to know that the websites like http://imgur.com/ and http://www.gfycat.com/ are using dedicated servers and the cost of those server too much but they are using less adds for income and ads are place at footer or middle in left side and don't think that with these ads they can earn more for them and also for server cost. Is there any other source of income of this type of sites of these type of sites? I know these websites are big sites. But what is source of income of these sites?


    Waiting for reply.

    Well, there is a paid subscription as well, but the ads income won't be low either.
