I’ve realized that, even though I have many links to my recommended adult web hosting providers on iStartaPornSite.com, there are some choices you have to make once you get to these sites that may not make sense to everyone. For instance, you may be asking yourself what adult hosting package should I choose? Or why can’t I do a better domain search on these sites.

If you already know what you’re doing and just want a good adult web hosting provider without doing a whole bunch of searching, just go to  Cirtex Hosting and grab the package that fits your needs. If you want to learn more see below.

Here’s my definitive guide for buying adult web hosting that will fit your needs, budget and anything else you need it to fit!

1. Find a Domain Name

For this, we’re going to use Go Daddy.  We’re not going to buy our domain or hosting here. Just search. These guys have a great domain search tool, but their hosting is terrible AND they don’t offer adult web hosting.

Use the Google Keyword tool to find a number of exact match keywords in your niche. Then export them as text and paste them into the Go Daddy bulk domain tool. This will spit out a number of options for you.

Pick one.

The time for hesitation is over. Pick a domain, copy it and get ready for step 2.

2. Choose Your Web Hosting Company

Armed with our available domain name we’re going to go straight to the web hosting site and buy our hosting. Don’t delay on this step, as you may lose the domain name. I’m not certain, but once you’ve done a search on a domain name it’s possible it could be poached by another party. I’ve seen this happen once.

I recommend 1 hosting company. You can search around the web for others, but you’re not going to find an adult friendly host that’s cheaper than this. They have incredibly quick free support too. Click the link below while holding “ctrl” on your keyboard to open a new tab. (or just right click and press Open in a New Tab)

These guys are both in the US - Illinois and New York.

Here’s where the most questions come in! Here is your answer:

Choose the Basic Plan at the 12 Month Price.

Don’t worry too much about your choice here, you can always upgrade easily so start low and move up if you need to.

4. Enter Your Domain Name

When registering with Cirtex click the radio button beside “I want to register a new domain name for the website“. Then paste the domain you’ve chosen into the field beside “www.”. Then choose your TLD or domain extension (.com, .net, etc).

5. Confirm your Domain Name

Just  confirm your domain name before proceeding.

6. Customize your Plan

You can select a longer payment term to get a lower monthly rate. You can choose any option, but the 1 year price seems fine to me. Don’t choose any other options. You don’t need anything else at this stage!

7. Enter Your Payment Information.

Enter your payment information and create your new adult web hosting account. That’s it. Your hosting will be set up automatically and you will receive an email with information on how to access cpanel, where you can install word press and start building your pornsite!

I don’t know what it is, but I find that it’s just harder to work in the summer. I had a great summer off here, but it’s time to get back to school. Porn website school that is. Time to:

  • brush the dust off of our porn affiliate accounts
  • start building up adult links again and
  • get our traffic in to our sites and out to convert

I’m planning a number of new posts to help you get back on track and motivated to make some money this fall! Hey if anything we should all have a few extra bucks to spend by Christmas time.

Patience vs. Persistence

I think that the biggest roadblock that people face when trying to make a go of it as an adult internet marketer is what I call the patience vs. persistence factor.

For a lot of us, it can be frustrating to build up our rankings in Google only to watch them drop off, then rise again and continue on this roller coaster. It can also be frustrating to watch the clicks come through our adult affiliate accounts but see little or no sales during the initial phases of our launch. The fact is that this is normal. It takes time to get traffic flowing to your site. AND, if you’ve chosen a good niche for your porn site, you will start to see sales in your affiliate accounts.

The key is to:

  1. Understand that this won’t be an overnight success
  2. Be persistent with your efforts

By Being persistent I mean that your should:

  • Continue to build links
  • Continue to add content
  • Continue to try out different ads and affiliate programs
  • Continue to try different methods to convert your traffic
  • Continue to watch your stats and look for ways to increase your rankings

And we both know that this doesn’t take that that much time to do. If you only have one site you’re working with you only need to dedicate an hour or two a week to this. If you keep this up during your growing pains you’ll be a lot further ahead than most and you’ll be rewarded.

Your Homework

So as your first homework assignment of the school year how about we get organized with our marketing efforts. Put together a weekly schedule of all the tasks that you’re going to perform to get you past this hurdle and start making some real money. If yo u like post  your plans here as a comment! I’d love to see what you’ve come up with.

And for those of you that are still trying to decide whether or not you want to try and build an adult website at all, your homework is to get off the pot and get started! What else are you going to do over those long cold wither months ahead?

Website design is for a lot more than making your site look prettier than a twenty dollar whore. Adult website design or any affiliate content site design should do a number of things for you:

Represent

By represent, I mean reinforce the subject matter of your website.

A good website design will communicate to  visitors that they are in the right place as soon as they arrive. This is the part that most people think about when they think design. This is the colours, the patterns, the imagery, the logo. This is generally he process of dolling up your site to look prettier than a twenty dollar whore.

Be User Friendly

Your design is the only thing that’s gonna help your visitors find their way around your website. This means that it needs to be easy to use. Your visitors are probably at your site to watch videos. You need to make it easy to find the ones they want to watch. This means highly visible category links, suggested next videos easy search etc. The easier it is for them to find videos they like, the longer their going to stick around and the longer you have to try and convert them.

Make You Money

The design can help you make money. In the design you need to lay out consistent, highly visible links to your affiliate sites. This is where you make your money, so I don’t have to tell you that this is a damn important part of the design.

Help You Rank

A well planned design will  will actually help you get better rankings for your adult website in the search engines. This means that your design has been built to leave ample opportunity to do proper on page content optimization.

So What Can You Do?

Well I’ll tell you what I did! I sat down with a pen and paper and drew up some wire frames of how I want my site to work. This is the first step. Let’s call it planning! Click here to read part 2 in this thrilling series – Design Matters Part 2 – Planning Your Adult Website Design!

When I first stated out I had a bit of trouble finding an adult affiliate program that would actually accept me. I went to some of the big affiliate websites out there in search of content. I set up my ICQ address, registered, verified and then received a number of rejection letters.

Turns out that there are quite a few adult affiliate programs out there that will not accept your application for a number of reasons:

  1. They want you to prove that you are using other affiliate programs and have seen success with them.
  2. They want to see that you are a functioning site that already has a whole bunch of pron content on your site.

Since you can’t get any content without an affiliate content provider AND you can’t get registered with an affiliate  unless you have content and are having success working with your affiliates this turns into a “chicken or the egg” situation very quickly!

There is a solution! Eventually I did find an adult content provider/affiliate program after some searching around! And here it is:

Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network (AEBN)

Click here to register with them now.

Click on Webmasters at the bottom left, then Signup in the upper right. Just fill in the form and you’re ready to go!

Any other easy sign-up affiliates out there, Leave a comment and let me know!

The short answer is not very much…

You need to shell out some cash on 2 things to get up and running:

  1. Domain RegistrationAbout $14/year
  2. Web HostingAbout $85/year

The rest is know-how and time. I will supply all the information you’ll need to get an adult porn tube site up and running in no time.

This means that  it costs about $100 to start a porn site.

And these are your porn site costs for a year.

I use Godaddy for my hosting and Citrex for my hosting usually.

This one may be a little obvious for some people, so I’ll keep it short. If anyone needs more information on this please leave a comment and I will help!

In order for the domain name you just registered to point to the web hosting account you just signed up for you have to update your DNS (domain name server information) with your domain registrar.

When you purchase hosting, you will receive a confirmation email with all of your new passwords and account information. Look in this email and find where it says:
NAMESERVER DNS INFORMATION

With two we addresses listed underneath:

Nameserver 1: ns75.cirtexhosting.com (67.159.54.66)
Nameserver 2: ns76.cirtexhosting.com (67.159.54.67)

Copy the the ns75.cirtexhosting.com part, login to your domain registrar and update the nameserver information for your domain with this information.

It should also be mentioned that you can skip this step if you register your domain at the same time that you purchase your hosting. This is possible at Citrex as well.

Web hosting is like leasing a space on a computer where the files of your website will actually reside. The files sit on this computer or server and can be Accessed by people browsing the web. Every time someone visits your adult web site they download these  files from this one server and display them in their browser.

Some people set up servers in their homes and offices, but for your start up porn site it makes way more sense, time and money wise, to get web hosting from a company who does this as their business. A good web hosting company will have 3 things that you’ll need as you build and maintain your new adult web site.

  1. Infrastructure – they will have servers and facilities to house them, not to mention a dedicated connection to the internet suitable to host a website that receives a lot of traffic.
  2. Support – web servers are very complex machines and far from not perfect, sooner or later you’ll run into an issue that you can’t solve.  A good web host will have a 24 hour support service that can respond to your requests and get you back up and running when problems arise.
  3. Technology – If you’re planning on steaming video from your server, which you probably are, there is certain software that must be installed on your adult web host that will make this run smoothly. You want to get a server that can accommodate this.
  4. Allows Adult Content – OK, I know I said 3, but, as things go, I forgot about the most important, most obvious point. You must get a web host that allows adult content to be hosted on their machines. If you put a bunch of adult content on a machine that doesn’t allow this, they will delete your account, and your website. AND they will keep you money! So read the terms of use for any web host you choose. OR just pick the one that I use.

So, rather than search all over the web for a server that fits your needs you could take my recommendation and use Citrix.

I use these guys for a number of porn sites. They have the right software installed for streaming video the right way, have an incredibly fast support department and definitely allow adult content.  Not to mention they’re pretty inexpensive! Check them out, you won’t be disappointed!

Once you’ve decided on a name you need to register that name with a domain registrar. The registrar is what gives you ownership of your domain name. You can register for as little as 1 year at a time all the way up to a 10 year registration.

If you’re not sure where to register your porn site domain name try Godaddy. They’ve got the best prices and best service if you ever need it!

Domain registration is  inexpensive and I usually only register for 1 year at a time with an automatic renewal. Be careful with this though, because if your credit card expires your domain will not renew at the end of the year and your domain will expire as well.

Steps to register:

  1. Type in your desired domain name and TLD here (a tld is the suffix at the end of your domain name: .com, .net, .tv etc)
  2. If your name isn’t available, you can change the TLD or modify the name slightly to something that is available.
  3. Once you’ve found the name you want, set up an account follow the steps to complete the registration.
  4. Do not choose any hosting options at this stage, just register the domain name and nothing else. If you don’t want your name to show up in any public records about this domain, be sure to choose the private registration option.
  5. Keep all emails you get from the registrar and put your login and password in a place where you can find it, even if it’s a year down the road. If you lose this information it will be hard to get it back again later.


You’re all set. Now you just need to set up some porn friendly hosting.
