How to start a pornsite - The Ultimate Guide

Most people wonder how they can make money building a porn site when there are already thousands of them online. To this it can be answered that the porn industry is a little bit like a business hydra: the more websites get uploaded each month, the bigger the demand.

We won’t go as far as saying that creating a porn website and making money from it is easy. If you jump in, you will soon discover that a great deal of knowledge and savvy is needed. Yet, with enough willpower, research, and with the right tool, you can be pretty confident you will be able to yield profit in less than a month.

All you have to do is follow our instructions, and with a fine design and efficient plug-ins we can assure you it will pay off.

How does a porn site make money?

How indeed? There are a few ways for a porn site to make money. Of course, you can really dive into it and start a producer activity, get a filming gear and build up your own production
company. Or you can just stay a pure player and make tons of money without leaving your chair. Here’s how.

Adult Affiliate Programs

Affiliate marketing is definitely the easiest, surest way to earn money with porn – although it is not specific to the adult industry.

Lest you are already familiar with the term, you may have found it difficult to understand exactly what it means, for every blog or tutorial assumes that everybody is well acquainted with this method.

For those won’t are not quite sure what adult affiliate programs are, let’s take a look at the actors:

  • The sponsor: he is the one providing the product, be it a premium website, a penis-enlarging medicine, sextoys, DVDs or a date. He gives a link to the host, who earns a commission each time a consumer follow it and purchase an object or a service.
  • The publisher: in our case, it would be you. The publisher is charged with displaying advertisement for the sponsor, and do what he can to ensure that it will generate clicks – and hence, money. To make sure this will be profitable, he has to make sure his website gets an important traffic, and that the ads are visible enough for consumers to notice them.
  • The consumer: the surfer is your target. He is the one you need to convince to click on your sponsor’s ad so he can purchase his product or subscribe to his offer. You will get paid for each transaction going through your porn site.

And the best thing is that big porn sites like Pornhub actually encourage you to feature their videos on your website – provided that you bring up traffic to their network.

In order to do so, they even provide you with XML files allowing you to upload new content automatically as well as deleting removed content when necessary.

All you have to do is to install a WordPress with your Adult Tube WordPress theme and use WP-Script to import the content automatically – but we will come back to this adult video grabber script later on.

Premium porn content

There are a few ways you can provide premium porn content on your website. First off, you can offer a better-quality, pop-up- less, richer subscription giving access to you own website.

But you can also propose it in the form of affiliate marketing, with a call-to- action button under a video allowing the viewer to access the video in his integrality, either on a premium website or through embedded content.

Either way, it is a great option if you want to sell products with a greater added value. But if you want to stand out from the competition, you will probably need to feature niche content.

Advertising

Unlike affiliate porn, the revenue you channel through advertising doesn’t depend on you actually selling the product to the consumer. In this context, you are paid immediately a fewer amount of money, but you don’t have to care about viewers clicking on the link.

The amount of money you will get with this method mostly depends on your website traffic, rather than on the quality of your offer.

Traditionally, the unit of measurement used to estimate the price of this service is the cost per mille (CPM), which is the amount of money you get paid each time the ad is viewed (or displayed, depending on contracts) on your porn site a thousand times.

But you can also choose the CPC (cost per click) which will be more profitable if your viewers are keen to follow the links.

Finally, there’s the pop-under ad which opens each time a user leaves your website. Although not as intrusive as pop-up ads, consumers are more and more defiant toward them.

Videos and images hosting

Last off, there is a method to make money with affiliate marketing which is a little bit slow and laborious but can accommodate you with a comfortable passive income for years to come.

What you have got to do, to begin with, is buy a domain name. Choose one which is available, and which coincide with the type of videos you intend to host on it.

Once it is done, you should get an affiliation contract with a company, so that when a web user research your website on Google and click on it, he will be automatically redirected towards the affiliate website.

Then you need to get porn videos from a non-watermarked porn site like xHamster, at a rate of your choice. Choose free-to- use videos of a reasonable quality, and watermark them using Premiere or any other software.

Finally, you’ll have to upload them on porn websites like XVideos and make sure that your watermark is visible and that your domain name is in the video description.

This done, if the viewer likes your content, they will research your domain name on Google and be redirected toward your affiliate porn site. Once there, if they choose to subscribe to the offer of said website, you will be able to cash in you commission.

How much money can you make with a porn site?

This is not an easy question to answer for there is a wide variety of situations. Between someone running one website outside their day job and another one managing nine or ten porn sites at once, there can be a significant difference.

But there are also a lot of other factors that need to be taken into account, from your skills in web mastering and SEO to the quality of your content.

The countries you target, either being in high traffic zones or in low traffic zones can also have a huge influence on your revenues.

And of course, the amount of risk you are ready to endorse can also be a key element. If you decide to go black-hat, you might make a whole lot more money quicker, but also put your whole business in jeopardy.

To give you a slight insight a what kind of money you can reasonably expect, let’s say most people operating full-time earn between a thousand and ten thousand euros a month.

Choose a niche weakly exploited

Some of you who have studied marketing may be familiar with Anderson’s long trail theory. According to this economist, because of the huge amount of information hosted on the internet, it is easier to develop a business targeting small niches than a mainstream audience.

And thankfully, the porn industry is by nature very niche-oriented. You can trust there will always be people whose own personal tastes are not fulfilled with what they are offered.

Besides as there are more and more layers of society ready to consume porn, the demand is constantly expanding.

Choose a relevant domain name

Once you have chosen your target, you need to select your domain name accordingly. It has to be telltale and straightforward, so that viewers can research it and remember it easily.

Before buying it, type the name into you hoster’s research bar in order to make sure that it is available.

If it is and you can afford it, then go ahead!

Choose an Adult Web Hosting Solution

The porn industry, like any other industry, has very specific needs regarding hosting solutions.

There are two keywords here: storage and bandwidth, in order to upload a massive amount of content able to be streamed seamlessly.

Plus, don’t neglect security for you customer data needs above everything else to stay confidential.

Although you can benchmark the internet if you want, most people will recommend M3Server, which is both efficient and secure enough.
