It’s Website Building Time!
This is what you’ve been waiting for, I know it. It’s time to actually take all your ideas and get them on the world wide web.
This is where your website becomes a reality.
Over the next few steps, we’ll be setting up your website, getting a design, setting up a backend and get some content flowing, as well as touching on basic search engine optimization to help get you started.
At this stage, we’ll just be setting up a website without affiliate links or banners or call to actions or anything like that. Don’t worry – we’ll get to all that. However the actual setup of your website is a big hurdle, so let’s just get over this phase first!
Website Hosting & Domain Name Purchase
We already covered picking out a domain name, but if you skipped that step or haven’t yet purchased one, then I recommend going through GoDaddy or Namecheap.
When it comes to website hosting – I’ve been building websites since 1996, and I’ve used over 30 web hosts during that period of time. I’ve had great stories and I’ve had horror stories, but at the end of the day I know exactly what makes a good web host.
My #1 choice is Intraserver.
I use Intraserver for 90% of my websites and I’d recommend them to every new affiliate. If you don’t have a big budget you can get a plan for as little as $4.95 which will allow you hosting for a single domain. For unlimited domains it’s as low as $7.95 per month.
Also use coupon code: AFFILIATEBIBLE for $9.94 off.
On the other end of things, they offer very powerful and affordable dedicated servers, starting at $174 per month, and you can choose whether to use Linux or Windows.
From a customer support point of view I could not be happier. I’ve had to contact them a few times over the last few years, and whether it’s telephone support, live chat support or e-mail support, I’ve always been able to get incredibly prompt responses.
More importantly than that – the customer service staff have always went above and beyond for me. You have absolutely no idea the tasks I have set them to do, and how they have handled it for me for free, even though it’s taken hours at a time.
I can only give the highest recommendation for Intraserver. No matter what you’re looking for, Intraserver are the best choice for web hosting.
(And yes, they do accept gambling affiliate sites!).
