Question of the Day: What web content are you willing to pay for?

Ms. Swiss Miss posed the question, what web site content are you willing to pay for? I think its interesting that people are hesitant to pay for content or services online and there is a widely held perception that online content should be free. As designers, both digital and print, we know the time, effort and expertise it takes to produce good, streamlined, functional sites. How is paying for a service or informational site different than buying a book, magazine or newspaper?

At the moment, I pay for:
Dreamhost hosting/domains

I would pay to use the Ravelry site which was custom-design for a niche audience and extremely well done.

What online content or services are you paying to use or would you be willing to pay for?
