These days, you don’t have to be a computer expert to make your own site.  The days of spending months learning HTML are gone.  Today, you only need a few simple tools to make you look like a tech-savy internet guru.  Want to start your own online model agency or affiliate site?  It’s not complicated.

Before you can have your own site or blog, you need hosting.  Web hosting is a type of Internet hosting service that allows you to make your website accessible via the world wide web.  It’s very affordable, and other than about $5/month for hosting, there are NO other costs required to start your own adult affiliate business.

Choosing a Hosting Company

There are many free and paid hosting providers to choose from.  Your initial impulse might be to find free hosting.  But in my experience, this will only waste time.  I see so many affiliates try to “get by” with free hosting, only to end up with ugly looking URLs and/or generic templates, all of which will harm your Google site rankings.  Bottom line, if you’re serious about building a successful online business, you need hosting.

I’ve been using HostGator for over two years now and am very pleased with their service (I wish I could say that about my previous service provider).  HostGator is an adult-friendly hosting company founded in 2002.  They provide hosting service to more than 2.5 million domains and still growing.  On top of that, they’ve won numerous awards for “Fastest Growing Private Company in America”, “Reader’s Choice Awards”, and named top in Texas for the recent “Inc 5000 Awards”.  In other words, you can trust them.

The Good

HostGator uses the popular cPanel as your control panel to make your life easy.  This friendly user-interface is where you will check visitor statistics, create email accounts ([email protected]), watch video tutorials, and contact customer support.  It’s simple to use and you will get the hang of it in no time. (See HostGator cPanel screenshot below.)

In terms of customer support, HostGator is the best I’ve come across.  There’s online staff waiting for you 24/7 and are quick to reply (usually within seconds).  There’s also a toll free number but you probably won’t need it since the online support is so fast.

The Bad

Unfortunately, HostGator is a little pricey compared to other hosting companies (about $1/month extra compared to the average).  That said, you get what you pay for, and in my opinion, the extra $1 is well worth the top notch customer support.

UPDATE: Thanks to the special discount code ADULTWEBCAM25 given to readers, Hostgator’s price is no longer expensive.   Hosting plans now costs as low as $3.71/month (very reasonable price for a good web host like Hostgator).  At this moment, I don’t see any drawbacks with Hostgator.
