    Getting Started with Adult Websites
    By AJ Hall

    YNOT – So you’ve got some content and you’re ready to build a pay site. Now what?

    The first step is to get the tools you need. On a basic level, these are a web host, a content management system or some kind of management script, a security and user management script, and a billing company.

    Choosing which CMS to use is likely to be one of the more difficult decisions, as there are lots of choices.

Do you just need a simple script you may outgrow, or would you prefer a high-end software product that can grow with you? Do you want access to live ...

    content/attachments/13820-createwithwordpress-jpg.html YNOT – In previous articles we saw how to manage articles, pages, links and multimedia content of your portal built with WordPress. Today's article will focus on the element that, perhaps more than any other, can determine the success or failure of a site: its appearance.

    Establishing unique look and feel in the user’s mind is a very important factor that can establish the success of a portal. On the other hand, a layout that looks “too common” can be confusing and allow your site to become lost among a sea of other similar sites.

    The menu of WordPress has a special section (Appearance) specifically dedicated ...

    content/attachments/13205-createwithwordpress-jpg.html YNOT – If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably followed the previous ones and you’re ready to begin creating a website using one of the most popular content management systems currently in circulation: WordPress.

    We have seen many theoretical aspects of WordPress and analyzed all assessments to be done before buying a hosting space and related services. However, in order to function, all CMSes require certain outside components be installed on the server, and WordPress is no exception.

    Server Requirements:
    • PHP version 4.3 or higher
    • MySQL version 4.1.2 or higher
    • (Optional) Apache mod_rewrite module (for

    content/attachments/13157-createwithwordpress-jpg.html YNOT – We’ve finally reached the long-awaited moment in which we will dive into the world of the WordPress content management system. In previous columns, we saw how to weigh the quality of a hosting service and discussed how the choice of certain parameters over others depends on the characteristics of the portal we wish to create.

    Today we will dedicate ourselves to analyzing the characteristics of the popular content management system.

    We can summarize WordPress in a few simple words:

    WordPress is a platform for “personal publishing” and content management written in PHP. It uses MySQL as a database, which allows the creation of a blog or personal site. Created by Matt Mullenweg, WordPress is distributed

    content/attachments/13102-createwithwordpress-jpg.html YNOT – In previous articles we looked at how to assess a hosting service based on the characteristics of the website we want to create, and we have paid particular attention to the choice of the physical space available to both the files and the database.

    Today we deal with bandwidth requirements, which no doubt are of paramount importance for the success of a site.

    Bandwidth is the maximum transmission rate of any communication channel — that is, the maximum amount of information a channel can transmit per unit of time. As you can well understand, the lower the bandwidth requirement, the better ...

    content/attachments/13062-createwithwordpress-jpg.html YNOT – Before creating your own website, it is necessary to secure server space that not only will provide all the features the site may require, but also can expand as your website grows. Price is not the only consideration. Weigh your options carefully, as hasty choices could wreak havoc down the road.

    Before proceeding with the purchase of web space and related services, you should consider some parameters that no doubt will define the size and basic aspects of your work and, indirectly, the success of your brand. Determine the following about your site before you shop for website hosts.

    content/attachments/12883-marketshare-jpg.html YNOT – Many of us have heard the business axiom “in niches are riches.” I’ve come to realize there is one even better rule when deciding what to promote and develop in the adult online industry:

    Follow the crowd ... just don't get lost in it.

    Why develop a new, untested genre or a micro-niche when you can create a promotion in a niche that already contains plenty of consumers looking for what you plan to offer? Pick a crowded genre and create a promotion or content designed to feed the starving crowd, even if you think the genre is saturated.

    Why do you think there are so many sites for fans of celebrities or blowjobs? Millions ...

    content/attachments/12717-manworld-jpg.html YNOT – Domain names can affect the success or failure of web-based activities, especially when it comes to adult websites. Obviously the only thing that ultimately will determine whether surfers pay to join or view is the content. The more enticing, updated and advertised, the more success the site will find. However, choosing an appropriate domain name no doubt influences the way the site is located in search results, and also can have an enormous impact on the initial impression a surfer obtains.

    Your site’s domain name is one of the first things you should consider, not only because it will provide a unique address on the web, but also because the ...
