The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses.

FUSO Appliance Kathmandu
This photograph was given to me by a friend who was travelling in Nepal and came across this appliance in Kathmandu. In the background is Pashupatinath Temple, out of shot to the front is the Bagmati river and on it's banks the site of funeral pyres. Perhaps this machine is providing fire cover in that respect as there are a number of buildings adjacent. To me the appliance looks Japanese and I am guessing FUSO by make.
