Zophar's Domain would like to thank you for considering becoming our patron.

Zophar's Domain is a 20 year old emulation website that aims to cover all possible consoles and operating systems, since Nov 9th, 1996. Over time, it has literally become a piece of internet history, preserving over 20,000 files ranging from little known emulators to game development utilities.

Recently Zophar's Domain has also become one of the largest websites for preserving video game music, in its original form, extracted from the games, or converted as MP3 files.

I believe the future of the site is free of advertising. However, the site currently incurs considerable server costs, as the site's total file size including one backup amounts to 15TB (yes, that's 15,000 GB!). As you can imagine, the amount of data transferred is also considerable. I ask for your patronage in order to pay for the server costs while the site is ad free.

I also believe that even as an archive, Zophar's Domain needs to be developed and worked on, not abandoned. The site needs a new layout, one that is hopefully better adapted to modern needs. There are certain issues in the backend that need to be fixed and features developed further to make the adding of new content easier. I would also like to develop and expand new sections like I've done with the music section. I ask for your patronage in order to continue development of the site.

Zophar's Domain is a free website. What we have to give, we give you for free. So as our patron, I hope you are satisfied with the warm fuzzy feeling that you can get only by keeping a piece of internet history alive and kicking :)
