INTERNET PRIVACY - why we need it!
Currently when you buy a domain name the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires the mailing address, phone number and email address of those owning and/or administrating a domain name to be made publicly available through the "WHOIS" directories. That policy enables spammers, direct marketers, identity thieves, or other attackers to loot the directory for personal information about these people.
Domain registry companies like Fashionable Domains offer Domain Privacy Registry services (for a fee) where their administrative and technical contacts are substituted for you the owner and as such they appear in the Internet's "WHOIS" database. Thus the responsibility for managing unsolicited contacts from third parties and keeping the domains real owners personal information safe from the public eye falls on them. Although not mandatory its worth thinking about making a small outlay.
ONLINE BUSINESS - get on now!
What business in the world can you run for less than $200/yr and where the potential profit can be limitless - an online one. Just consider it costs less than US$10/pa to buy a .COM domain and under US$90/pa for hosting from businesses like Fashionable Domains. You can then buy a cheap website from Dream Templates which offer buyers 7,500 templates all for under US$70. Alternatively you can get a free blog template when you activate the free wordpress application on your Fashionable Domains hosting account. It does take some programming knowledge to configure and alter templates but you can limit the need for modification if you select the right template for you and keep it simple - at least for your first try. Ensure your template has positions for adding Google Adsense ads which is where your profit will come from.
Once you have selected your template, add some interesting content and pictures but we also suggest adding free products as these attract more visitors. These free products may be digital products such as php scripts, pictures, video's or sounds you have purchsed for a few dollars and you are allowed to give away for free. Once you are happy with your work, sign up for and place Google Adsense ads on your website. We suggest pictures and prefereably the large ones as these attract the most clicks. Once you go live with your website start the time consuming processing of driving visitors to it. Once they are there we suggest you encourage your visitors to support your website by clicking on your Adsense adverts. The more clicks you get the more money you will receive (Word of warning - don't click yourself or you will be banned by Google).
To give you an idea of what is possible - this writer has earned on average $30 per week from Google Ads (size: 468x60) on a very basic website - spread over a year this equates to approximately $1,500 per annum. Based on my setup costs of less than $200pa thats a huge return for what amounts to very little work. This type of business can be scaled up with minimal effort where it's possible to add 10, 20 or even 100 of these simple one-page websites all earning $30/week. Get the family involved but start TODAY making money on the internet.
