How-To-Start-A-Porn-Site-And-Make-Money

There are millions of porn websites on the web and thousands of them are started every single day.

Recently, even though I have been in this industry for many years, I was really shocked when I learned that almost 50% of all content on the Internet is pornographic material.

PornHub alone receives 78.1 million visitors a day and this number is rapidly growing and I am sure that a year after I publish this post, it will be 100 millions or even more.

The truth is that nowadays more than ever before, there is a huge demand for porn (85% of 18 to 30-year-old American men watch internet porn at least once a week) and more and more are searching for an erotic content on the Google.

XVideos gets more visits than the huge mainstream companies like DropBox, CNN or Twitter.

Did you know that the adult industry generates makes more money than Major League Baseball, The NFL, and The NBA combined?

So why not build your own porn site today and have a piece of the cake too?

If you feel kind of lost because you do not know what to do first and which companies you should avoid like hell and which ones you should use and you just need a newbie friendly, step by step guide then you have just come to the right place, my friend 🙂

Everyone Can Do It

When I was starting out, it was very hard for an average Joe to create a porn site, let alone make a solid income.

You would have to pay hundreds of dollars for just a basic hosting account and back in that day, there was no good pre made themes so you would need to hire a developer and it would cost you at least $2,000 to have a simple template created.

I have to admit that we all are very fortunate to live in times in which everyone can start a website.

Thanks to the growth of the open source communities like WordPress and amazing companies, you do not need any prior coding knowledge or any technical skills.

You do not need to have a deep pocket either, in this post I will show you that you can start your journey with as little as $50 and then pay only as little as a few bucks a month.

I will also show you how I generate more than $100,000 as an adult affiliate without really owning any company or hiring hundreds of employees so you can turn your new porn site into a money making machine.

I see people even in their 60s starting out in the adult and making a nice profit, so these days it is super easy to build your own site no matter your age, race, gender, income level or education level.

So even if you are a complete newbie and you do not a thing about WordPress, you can start your own tube (or whatever kind of site you want) in less than a one hour if you follow this guide.

Step 1: Choose A Niche

This is one of the most, if not the most important steps of this guide.

If you choose a wrong niche, you will end up making very few or no money at all and you will close up shop quickly.

I have been there, done that 🙂

A porn niche is a topic that is catering to a specific market.

For example, webcam is regarded as the most lucrative niche in the adult industry. Other niches are big tits, gay bears, emo, milf, anal or public nudity.

The fact is that the main reason why so many new adult affiliates leave the industry is that they just pick any niche they come across or even worse, they start a general tube like PornHub with all categories included.

If you want to become next PornHub, then you have to compete with them and other giants like XVideos or Hamster, which means that you have to have a huge budget, spend thousands on the SEO (backlinks, guest posts) and possibly hire hundreds of people since you will not be able to do everything alone.

I know that not many blogs put much emphasis on this, but you have to make sure that your chosen topic is something you are passionate about.

If you start a porn site in the gay niche, just because you have seen a one webmaster talk on one forum how many sales his gay site generate and you do not have any interest in that niche, then you basically set yourself up for failure.

And I am speaking from my own experience.

I failed miserably with a few of my adult sites and I had to delete them after just a month or two, because I was not even a bit interested in creating posts, adding videos in these topics that I have chosen.

I did not have any motivation at all and I did not really know anything about these niches either.

Now, I know that I will never be able to run a successful BDSM website since bondage simply is not my thing.

With that being said, do not choose one solely because of the money, you have to pick something you really like, because you are going to spend hundreds of hours a month adding posts about this subject.

You will not be able to last more than a few weeks in the adult, let alone become successful, if you can not commit yourself to create new content and work on it every day.

If you really want to make good money with your porn site these days, it is very crucial to make sure that you choose your niche wisely.

Step 2: Get A Domain Name

The next step is to get a domain name (it is a unique address like MrAdultAffiliate.com) for your new adult website.

Getting one is pretty easy, it takes less than five minutes even for a newbie but I am going to give you a few pieces of advice that you should consider before registering anything.

So I assume that you have already chosen a niche, it is highly recommended that you select a domain that includes the main keyword which should be your niche name that you are going to target.

It does not have to be something perfect. Well, it would be very hard to get a perfect one anyway since most of them are long registered.

Your domain has to give a good hint to your potential visitor what they can expect to see on your website (what kind of content more precisely) and that is why you should include a keyword.

I will give you a few examples of names to give you an idea of how you can choose one for yourself:

If your niche is more narrowed like milf webcams then I would pick something like:

  • MilfWebcamShows.com
  • MilfsOnCams.com
  • HotMilfsWebcam.com

If you have chosen more broad niche like porn amateur then I would suggest getting something similar to one of them (if those are available):

  • PornAmateurVids.com
  • AmateurPornClips.com
  • HomemadePornxxx.com

I promise you that you will find a name if you think more creatively.

I am still registering new domain names and I am often surprised how many names are still available for registration.

So, what domain providers would you recommend?

I have used most of them but I transferred all of my names to two name registrars since others are doing very shady things like charging you five more times after the first year or they even make your names to expire earlier to steal them from you.

The two ones that I can suggest to you:

  1. NameCheap
  2. Godaddy

I have been using them for over six years now and they are currently the best companies in the domain provider industry and they both give you a Whois-protection for free to protect your personal information.

This Whois protection feature is especially essential for adult website owners who do not really want to be found by their family, coworkers, girlfriends or they just do not want their email address to be publicly displayed so spammers can spam the shit out of you.

If you really want to stay completely anonymous then you will need it.

I can’t imagine what my parents (or colleges I applied to) would do if they found out.

If you use the Whois protection for your domain, your personal information such as the following is protected:

  • Full name
  • Phone number
  • Full address
  • Email address

It is a very crucial feature that you as an adult affiliate should have it enabled unless you do not mind having your personal details very easily accessible (it takes just a few seconds to find it on Google).

I would like to add that some of the most reputable host companies will give you a domain name for free for a one year provided you sing up for them.

The one hosting provider that I personally use, VPSHosting is giving away a free name with the Whois protection included even if you purchase their most basic plan.

Step 3: Choose A Web Hosting

Every single website (even the free one) on the Internet has a place where the all the files (including posts) lives on and this place is the best known as hosting.

Unfortunately, finding a hosting company that accepts adult content, you can trust, rely on is a difficult task.

Many are unreliable, and the pool you have to select from is even smaller when you factor in the reality that many of them will not accept adult content on their services.

However, there are a select number of hosting companies out there which allow you to host adult content on their servers, so naturally, when you are planning a new site you want to make sure you pick one you can comply with.

But it can be a real challenge to find a good hosting, especially if you are new and you have very little or no knowledge about this industry and in this day and age when companies are being bought up and destroyed, and where so little help is available when things go wrong.

I have used dozens of different hosting companies over all the years that I have been running porn websites and I can recommend you the guys from VPSHosting

It is is one of the most affordable and the best options for those of us that are in the adult industry. They have been in the business since 2007 and I have been with them since 2015.

I have been recommending the other provider 247-Host which is a solid one too, but VPSHosting is even better and they are excellent and their customer service is top-notch and if you needed any help their support staff can be reachable by ticket, by live chat or by phone.

To be honest, I had a few small issues with them, certainly, but no more than I have had with several others over the last 7 or 8 years but they always resolve the issues promptly unlike other providers.

You can start a porn website with them for less than 3 bucks a month and if you go with them, they will give you a one domain completely for free and they will also give you an SSL certificate (HTTPS) for no money at all.

I would suggest you order the business plan that costs $5.95 a month, if you are planning to build more than one site and if you want to get a faster server to make your visitors and Google happy.

They are the only adult friendly hosting that offers a 60 days money back guarantee for all of the plans including the most basic one but honestly, I do not think you will not need it since they are very solid.

I have two dedicated servers with VPSHosting and they host over 20 of my high traffic porn websites and I am going to order another server from these guys next week.

I have partnered with VPSHosting to give you the best deal possible for all the readers of GLOBALCPAOFFERS

Now, if you click on this link now, you will save 65% on the first order and they will also give you a free domain name of your choice and daily backups.

Do Not Use Free Hosting And Here Is Why

For those who do not know, 99% of all free porn hostings have terrible reputations and they are only alive because there are still many new affiliates that fall for them.

They buy up successful businesses, gut them, rip them apart, minimize their staff and cut their services down to the bare minimum they think they can get away with, and often without the customer even knowing what has happened.

You have to know that they let you start porn sites with them for free but they will also make money off of you in return by plastering your whole page with ads so much that you will barely have a place left for your own advertising.

The shadiest free host providers will give you just a little bit space for free so you can add a few posts and just several pictures, but then they will force you to upgrade to their paid plan or they will delete your whole data.

So they certainly are not samaritans, they are only there to entice newbies and rip them off.

I have used such services in the past and I know how horrible they are.

Their servers went down every few days without warning. This kind of thing happens very often with the free service, but very rarely it does happen with a reputable paid hosting company.

My free porn sites have been entirely inaccessible for weeks.

I filed a ticket on the first day, got an automated response on the fifth, and I have heard nothing since then despite adding a second ticket and despite updating them both.

I would have to basically hire someone to fix my stuff but after a few months of constant issues, I pulled the plug and I went with a real host and it was one of the best decisions I have made in my online business journey.

So stay clear from these guys if you care one bit about your sites and you are in it for a real money, not pennies.

Step 4: Choose Your CMS (Content Managing System)

Once you have your own domain name and you have signed up for a reputable hosting company, it is time to choose your content managing system that you will use to create your own porn website, add content, themes, plugins and do other things.

Well, the only real chose for you is WordPress and no other CMS comes even close to how amazing WordPress is.

The best thing about them is that they are completely free (I have been using them for my project since 2007 and they never charged me for anything) and they make it super easy to manage all kinds of websites (including porn ones) for people who do not any coding whatsoever.

Back in the day, you were forced to master the HMTL, CSS and other programming languages to even do simplest things like adding a video but thanks to awesome content managing systems like WordPress these days are long gone.

I hope you went with the VPSHosting because they are one of the adult friendly hosts that will install WordPress automatically without any hassle so you do not have to spend hours watching tutorials and reading very long articles.

However, you can also install it yourself in less than five minutes using the automatic app installer, if you do not want to wait for a customer support to do it for you (they can be very busy sometimes so it can take some time before they reach you).

Just follow these simple steps from this video. It is a newbie friendly guide so everyone following it should be able to have their adult WordPress site up and running without any issues.

My congratulations to you fellow webmaster! Your WordPress site is live now but there are few other things that you have to do if you truly want to make a good income in this naughty industry.

Step 5: Setting Up Your Porn Site

How-To-Start-A-Porn-Site-And-Make-Money
How-To-Start-A-Porn-Site-And-Make-Money

Like I said before, you can build all kinds of websites with WordPress, the sky is the limit.

However, in this article, I will show you how to create a porn tube and a cam site because these two are by far the most profitable ways to make money in the adult industry.

It is not just my opinion, you will find this two kind of websites dominate most of the results on the Google and they are also listed on Alexa as the most visited websites on the whole web.

How To Start A Tube Site

You do not have to have a deep pocket to start a porn tube site like PornHub or XVideos these days.

You just need a domain name, a basic hosting account, a content management system WordPress and a theme which you can purchase for less than $40 and I will show you how to do that.

I have been using WP-Script products for five years now and they are my go to shop.

I have tested all other alternatives but WPS is the most reliable provider and their support is second to none.

Unlike other shops, they update their products, actually fix bugs and they do not charge you to solve issues that are related to their plugins or themes or blame you every time you open a ticket.

Now, the themes that I am using are the RetroTube and the UltimaTube but the other ones are quite good as well and they can do the job.

However, I personally recommend the RetroTube because it is their most popular product used by thousands of adult webmasters and five of my porn tubes are built with it.

It is a clean and simple theme and it does not have any “fancy” features that will only slow down your website and make your visitors angry.

The RetroTube is built with the code that is professionally written to make it super easy for search engines to “read” your content thus boost your rankings.

I can see that they also give you the theme (which normally would cost $35.99) for free as a gift if you buy the RetroTube.

These guys really let me sleep easy. Knowing that my sites are well optimized for Google searches, secure and lets me focus on things that I am really good at, like adding content or promoting my tubes.

They are a good choice for the newbie or the advanced adult webmaster since there are no coding skills required to start a porn tube website using their products.

All you need to do is purchase their theme, upload it to WordPress and activate it. The video below will walk you through the process of installing any theme:

Get These Plugins If You Can Afford Them

If you are really looking to build a profitable porn business, then the plugin named KenPlayerfrom XWPThemes is a must have for you.

It currently costs $59, but you can use it on as many as 30 different domains and it is my favorite tool that I use for every single tube website build with WordPress.

But, why it is so good?

Thousands of adult webmasters choose the KenPlayer because it removes redirections and all kinds of ads, including the most annoying ones like pop ups from embed players.

So normally when you share content from let’s say PornHub on your porn website, they will automatically display advertisement and their big PornHub logo on every video.

That way, you will lose lots of visitors forever because they will either get frustrated because they will be bombarded with ads that are imposed by PornHub or they will simply click on the logo and they will be redirected to PornHub.

What this plugin does is it completely removes any advertisements (including redirections, logos, pop ups) that added by PornHub, XVideos, RedTube and YouPorn and it also lets you add your own advertisements (including a banner or a logo) to maximize your profits and improve your SEO.

I personally noticed that my bounce rate drastically decreased from 50% to 20% just a few hours after I installed this plugin on one of my porn tubes and it leads to improvement of my rankings on Google because visitors would actually stay and watch the videos without being redirected.

The second plugin that is a must have for all of my WordPress porn sites is the one called Ken Importer Pro Plugin and it is also from XWPThemes.

It is a very useful tool and it has been helping me to fill my porn websites with videos and save my time by easily importing thousands of videos literally in seconds instead of manually adding each video.

It lets you import content from the most popular tube sites like XVideos, PornHub, RedTube, YouPorn and XHamster and it also supports the biggest tube in the world – YouTube.

The other important feature of this plugin is that it can put your porn website on auto pilot.

You just have to choose the categories aka niches you want to grab videos from and it will frequently update your tube with new videos without you doing anything.

With this plugin adding new videos in bulk to your porn site is so easy and quick.

Before I started using the Ken Importer Pro, I used to spend literally hours every day searching for new content to publish.

Now, I just need to enter the keyword and in seconds it will find thousands of videos that are ready to be embedded.

I have so much content to satisfy all the visitors and make them stay for more than just a few minutes so they will come back for more.

It is not just only about time saving, but this plugin actually helps you to improve your SEO, since the more good content you have, the more videos your visitors will watch and the longer they will stay on your website, all of this will increase chances of improving your rankings.

I highly recommend the Ken Importer Pro from XWPThemes to anyone that has a porn website. I have used similar plugins before but they were too buggy or they would not work properly most of the time.

Where To Get Content From For My Tube?

You can populate your own website with content for free by embedding aka adding videos from other popular websites like PornHub, RedTube, XHamster, XVideos.

If you do this instead of actually uploading videos on your server, you will save on lots of work and money because you would need a very solid (and pricey) dedicated server to be able to host all of these videos yourself.

It is a perfectly legal method since they (PornHub and others) allow adult webmasters to share their content and they even give you an embed code under every video (just like YouTube does) so you can copy and paste it to your WordPress tube site with ease.

They have unlimited amounts of videos that you can embed so there is no need to buy content or shoot it yourself unless you really have resources to do that.

And trust me, I have been running porn tube sites for many years and you will never run out of content if you will embed their videos.

Create An Adult Webcam Site

Are you looking to start your own adult webcam site as an affiliate without all the big investments and headaches?

Well, you could not come to a better place because I am going to show you an easy and very affordable way to build your own adult cam site with WordPress for less than $50 and without any paperwork.

Now, I have already written a guide on how you can do that and you can check it out as well.

Until a few years ago, you would have to spend a couple thousands of dollars for just the software and pay tens of thousands per month for hosting, hiring models, coders, lawyers, accountants and who not.

My friend used to run such a business and trust me, it was very hard to get any return on investment and on top of that, he was very stressed out and it was not fun for him at all.

But now, thanks to guys from RoboScripts.net, you can literally start your own porn webcam site with a very tight budget and in less than an hour, whether you are a beginner or an advanced webmaster.

And you do not have to deal with any models or hire dozens of people. You can very easily manage it yourself, even if you are a complete newbie.

The costs are very minimal since you buy their WordPress plugin once and then your only monthly fee is your hosting.

I am a huge advocate of RoboScripts because their products are very powerful and they have helped me build very profitable adult cam sites that require very little work since they run on autopilot.

If you are just starting out then I would suggest you to get their WP Plugin first since it is easy to work with and it works with WordPress.

How Does WP Plugin Works?

This plugin is so popular and liked by adult affiliates (thousands of sites are powered by it) because it eliminates the need for dozens of plugins that you would normally use, it has very intuitive settings and it is fully SEO optimized to maximize your rankings on the Google.

You just have to upload it to your WordPress, activate it and enter your affiliate code and then this plugin will do the rest for you.

If you buy this WP Plugin (or any other product), the owner (Nick) will be glad to help you with the installation or any issues that you encounter.

It will not only fill up your porn site with hundreds of models in seconds but it will also update your website every few minutes and it will automatically add new models that are online.

Their text spinners that are integrated with the plugin will create unique titles and text to get good results on the search engines.

You can also add hand written posts if you want to since it allows you to easily add a blog section so even more horny guys will find you on the Google.

If you buy this WP Plugin, the owner (Nick) will be glad to help you with the installation or any issues that you encounter.

I have created dozens of adult webcam sites and about 95% all of them are built with the RoboScripts and I make a very good money with them even though I practically do not work on them.

They have the best solution for anyone who wants to promote any webcam program and the best thing is that you can start your own webcam business for less than $50, even if you do not have zero experience in the adult industry.

Start Making Money As An Affiliate

While porn pay site’s sales are significantly decreasing with each passing year and the adult cam industry is becoming more and more profitable.

I have learned this hard way. I used to generate hundreds of sales a day while promoting pay sites but times changed quickly and now they do not convert well even with targeted visitors.

In 2014 I stopped working with pay sites altogether since I would just waste my time and traffic and get a third world payout which could not even pay for my servers.

It is no wonder that so many affiliates stop monetizing their traffic the traditional way and they start making money with programs like Chaturbate.

Everyone with about $50-100 can start a porn website without leaving the room and make a very nice living as an affiliate.

You do not have to hire anyone, have a million dollar budget or have a college degree, you just need an Internet connection, a computer, around 100 bucks and a little bit of creativity and you are on your way to make a solid cash out of webcams.

Camgirls are selling. But how are you going to get traffic, traffic that is willing to spend money on cams?

I am making 95% of my online income with these two affiliate programs who have lots of webcam offers:

Adult cams are selling so well because they give a visitor something that no porn pay site can give them and this thing I am talking about is the live interaction.

There are thousands of live models on each popular site so it is very easy for a guy to look around and fall in love with a one cam girl, watch her every day for hours and spend hundreds of dollars on her.

And I know it from my personal experience.

I mean, I used to watch some girls live and I became addicted to a few of them to the point that I would sit in front of my computer and chat with them all night long, take them private and follow them on Twitter.

I could not control myself and I was so desperate at that time that looking back I can not believe I have done such things.

Over the years I have referred many guys (known as whales among porn affiliates) that bought over $10.000 in tokens in just one month time.

If you become a cam affiliate and you go for revshare of course, you will be paid a commission every time a person that came from your site spends any money.

It is very common to see people join the website, get hooked up on the model and keep buying credits for months or even years.

An income of a few thousands of dollars a month is very possible with porn webcams provided that you are working hard.

I can see in my statistics, that there are hundreds of members that have been constantly spending money on their favorite models (and for the last five years.

My Two Top Webcam Programs

Like I said, webcams are selling like hot cakes and that is why I am mainly focused on promoting live offers.

As an adult affiliate I am earning mid five figures with the programs that I am going to mention below:

Make Money With GLOBAL OFFERS

I have been a huge fan of GLOBAL OFFERS

ever since I have created my affiliate account on their site.

They are by far the best CPA network in the porn industry and every year they win tons of awards.

After five years of working with them, I have joined their Elite Club of Top 50 affiliates and now I have access to some exclusive offers and promotions.

They have more than 500 offers you can promote on your website, most of them are cam and dating related but they have something for every niche.

They have many good cam sponsors that you can promote right away, like “Slut Roulette”, “CamSoda”, “BongaCams”, “I’m Live”, “Live Jasmin”, “Cam4” but my two favorite ones are “Streamate” and “MyFreeCams”, both top notch sites that you can exclusively promote only through GLOBAL OFFERS.

Guys from Crak also have a very wide range of dating offers and I strongly recommend to test them out as adult dating products have always been profitable for me.

They also have a smart link tool that automatically picks the best performing offers based on the niche, location, operating system, browser, device of your visitors.
