Its $150 /moth for the server for the hosting and domains etc. vBulletin licenses are one off so don't need to count those really

So about 75.60 a month in Pounds :O

Why don't you give out your paypal email address and let people donate?!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!? If regulars donated like a pound (or more ) it would cut down your costs a LOT

That's a pretty cheap price for a dedicated server, remember he has several websites..
