Just started mining recently and I was just wondering, how do mining pools with 0% fee earn money?
I mean they must have an overhead for operating expenses (server hosting, domain, etc.). Do they do it as a service without payment or do they have some way to kick back?

I don't think how they earn but i think developers made those mining pool to support coin since they are selling it from the start.. Unlike in bitcoin that some mining pools are asking for fee like BTCC pool they had 2% pool fee.. Check this comparison https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Comparison_of_mining_pools

There are  some pools are asking for fee unlike other pool..

Thanks for the quick response. But you mean to say that the pools with 0% fee are doing it for free? All just to support the coin?
If so, that dedication seems unreal don't you think.

I've mined on a pool with 0 per cent pool fees, and noticed I was actually getting LESS coins than on a 1 per cent pool fee (suprnova in my case).

It might have just been variation or luck, even though this was spaced out over a few days, but perhaps there are unscrupulous pools that are taking just a touch off the top without you realising it, until you switch to another pool or get a proper estimate from whattomine.

If you have a particular pool in mind you could try mining for a couple days on that pool, then try on a larger fee based pool and see if there is any major difference.

if someone decided to run a pool, then he have to understand that  it cost money to keep it running.
for electricity, for support and so on. it is not possible to have 0% fee. if someone makes such low fee that means he is cheating, imho

0% fee pools accept donations. They probably might have their own miners mining in those pools. Otherwise no point in running the pool at loss unless its the dev running the pool for his own coin.

I see. Accepting donations indeed would be another acceptable option.

I wonder if we can get people who run mining pools to contribute to this discussion. Is profitable to run a mining pool?
I'm imagining if i'm a web developer it would be easy to configure and host a server, right?

Easier said than done. I'm not a pool owner but I understand that there are more to it than just configuring the pool apart from the hosting ofcourse. One wrong move and your reputation will take a big hit.

or maybe he's just doing promo to gain miners, then set normal fee
