There are many ways to earn money on the site. You can conditionally divide them into two categories:
    You provide a product or service and want to promote them on the Internet. It can be anything from original confectionery products to the sale of courses on their manufacture.
    You want to earn money on the site itself. Placement of banners, advertising content suitable to the subject of the site, customized product reviews, affiliate programs. There would be traffic, but there would be advertising.
At the same time, you can make a website without web programming skills and large investments: site designers and free content management systems (CMS) will help you create your resource in a few days.
With the support of HOSTiQ hosting specialists, we have compiled a short guide to creating and promoting a website, as well as ways to make further money on it.
The process of creating a website will take us 7 days (all coincidences are random). So, let's get to work.



Day 1. Preparing to create a website
Goals and objectives

By the time you start creating a website, you should literally see the end result in front of you. A vague idea is not enough, you need to know exactly what benefits your site will bring. To find out, answer the questions:

    What is the main task of your website?
    Short-term goals?
    Long-term goals?
    Who is your client? (You will analyze this point in more detail, defining the target audience.)
Why will the user visit your site?
    Why would he come back?
    How will your resource differ from competitors' sites?

Such a survey will help not only to see the purpose of your site more clearly, but also to come up with something new. Turn this into a creative process. And if you don't have enough ideas, get them from sites with similar topics.
Site Type

Depending on the goals, determine the type of site.

Business card website. This is a small website consisting of one or more pages. A simple option for posting information about a company or an individual, goods and services, contacts and other data.

Online showcase or catalog. A website where you can view your products, but you can't buy them.
It is much simpler than an online store, since it does not have functionality for buying goods. The online showcase is suitable for sales in your city: users choose products, and then come to your office or store to buy.
How to make a website catalog
Example of a catalog site

Online store. This is a more complex and functional option, a site where you can make purchases online, pay for goods and order delivery. With the help of an online store, you will be able to distribute products all over the world.

Promo site. This is a simple, bright and attractive resource that should interest the user. The promo site is suitable for you if you need to promote some exclusive product or service.

The blog. This is a kind of online magazine where new posts with text, images or videos regularly appear. It is suitable for anyone who wants to write about personal impressions, share experiences and give advice.

Forum. This is a site where users can create topics and leave notes on their own. The forum can exist as a separate site or be part of a portal, a company website or another resource.

Portal. This is a fairly large site that provides users with various Internet services. You can create a corporate portal for use within the company or a public portal accessible to any Internet user.

Target audience

What should your website be like in order to attract potential buyers or interest users? To find out, you need to determine the target audience (CA).

You can use five standard questions to highlight the target group.
What?    Your product or service.
Who? Consumer type:</p>

    gender and age;
    country of residence;
    social status;
    financial opportunities;
    marital status;
    profession;
    which sites he visits.

Why?    What motivates you to read content, order a product or service.
When?    The situation in which the purchase is made.
Where?    Place of purchase.

Now you know which people your resource is focused on. Use this knowledge when working on a website: from creating a design to developing an advertising campaign.
Site functionality

Describe all the possibilities that you consider necessary. Here are some examples:

    advanced search with filters;
    calculation of the cost of delivery;
    feedback form;
    service booking system;
    banner advertising system;
    news subscription system;
    article ratings;
    gallery;
    voting and polls;
    calendar of events.

To better understand what should be on the site, try to imagine yourself as a user and write down all the features that are necessary for convenient work with the resource.
Possible traffic

To calculate the approximate traffic on your site, you need to determine the search queries that people will use to get to you, and then look at their popularity in  "Google Trends".

    Select a search query.
    Specify the region where your target audience lives.
    Put an exclamation mark before each word of the query to find out how many impressions there will be for words in this particular form.

Multiply the number of impressions per month by CTR — the clickability coefficient of the link.

CTR depends on the position of your site in the search results. Of course, you cannot predict in advance where your site will be: it depends on both the quality of promotion and competitors in the chosen area.
But you can make an approximate forecast taking into account the best and worst case scenarios.

For example, if your site is in the first place in the search results, the resulting number of people should be multiplied by 25-30%, if on the eighth — by 2-4%. Here are the approximate indicators for different positions in the search results:

    25–30%;
    15–20%;
    10–12%;
    8–9%;
    4–8%;
    4–5%;
    3–4%;
    2–4%;
    3–5%.

Now let's calculate the approximate traffic. If your site is in the eighth place in the search results, and there were 800 impressions per month for the query you selected, the approximate traffic will be:

    800 × 2% = 16 people per month.

If your site comes out on top in the search results, at best your resource will be visited:

    800 × 30% = 240 people per month.

Thus, if your site goes to the first page of the search, the most popular query will get from 16 to 240 people per month. This is your approximate traffic.

Day 2. Choosing a platform for creating a website

Now you need to decide on hosting and choose a platform for site administration — a constructor or CMS.
How to choose a hosting service

Many novice webmasters prefer free or very cheap hosting. The problem is that free servers are usually overloaded, and companies providing cheap services are small and unreliable. Therefore, in addition to the reasonable cost, pay attention to several important points:
Disk space

For a static business card site or a catalog of goods and services, hosting with a small disk space of 10-20 GB is suitable. For more functional sites, such as blogs with medium or high traffic, you will need from 20 to 50 GB. Even more space is needed for online stores, resources with a large number of unique visitors and an abundance of video content — at least 100 GB.

As a rule, hosting companies offer different tariff plans with a certain amount of disk space. The above parameters in 10, 20, 50 and 100 GB are options from different hosting plans of HOSTiQ.
Availability of a dedicated IP address

Your site is located on the same server with others and shares an IP address with them. If webmasters of other sites use black methods to promote their resources, the search engine can block the IP address. This will affect all the sites on it, including yours. The same thing can happen as a result of a DoS attack on the server.

A dedicated IP protects your site from such troubles, and it is not so expensive.
 On HOSTiQ hosting, you can get a dedicated IP address for free at all: it is included in the S4 package, and in cheaper tariff plans it is provided for $ 1 per month.
Availability of a website builder

If you want to launch your resource in the shortest possible time, choose a website builder. You don't have to install CMS and deal with its administration. The intuitive interface of the designer and a lot of ready-made templates will help you create a website in a matter of hours, moreover, it will look no worse than the one bought from a web studio. HOSTiQ suggests using the SitePro constructor with a large number of thematic templates.

Availability of the CMS installer

The script installer will help you install CMS without creating databases and transferring files yourself. HOSTiQ hosting has a Softaculous installer with a large number of scripts, starting with popular engines like WordPress or Joomla and ending with various scripts to expand the site's capabilities.

Good support

Free or cheap hosting services are not distinguished by good (and round-the-clock) support, and you may need help at any stage of work on the site. Therefore, before you buy hosting services, check if it has round-the-clock support, like HOSTiQ: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are used to working at night, this can be a great advantage.
The opportunity to try for free

Advertising of each hosting promises trouble-free operation and friendly support service. But to find out if this is the case, you need to try. When the hosting provider is confident in the quality of his work, he can offer a test period. If you have tried free hosting and are not sure whether it is worth switching to a paid one, try the HOSTiQ test period. You can use the hosting services for a month and, if you change your mind about staying on it, get the deposited amount back.

Knowledge base

Look for a hosting service with a good knowledge base that will not only ensure the operation of your site, but also help you create it. For those who want to learn, HOSTiQ hosting provides a large knowledge base in the format of blog articles and YouTube channel videos. Installing themes, adding useful modules, SEO optimization lessons and much more.
How to choose a domain name

A good domain name should:

    Reflect the essence of your business or contain the name of the company. For example, if you have a company that makes cakes and pastries "Sladushka", the appropriate domain names will be tortnazakaz.ru or sladushka.ru .
    Be short and memorable. If your company has a long name, you can use an abbreviated version in the domain name. Example — "Unified portal of state and municipal services" with a domain name gosuslugi.ru .
    Match the audience or talk about the purpose of the site. The domain zone — the right part of the domain name — must correspond either to the place of residence of the audience or to the type of your resource. If you plan to work only with users, choose the ending .ru, Ukraine — .ua. If the site is aimed at users from any country, you can choose domain names for the purpose of the site: general purpose — .com, non—profit organization — .org, provision of network services - .net and so on. However, this is not the rule. For example, a well-known entertainment site Fishki.net it has nothing to do with network services, it just sounds better that way. In addition, now there are a huge number of interesting domain zones that hint at the type of resource: .boutique, .management, .graphics. The screenshot below shows examples of domain zones from HOSTiQ for business—related sites.

Domain names for business
Where to buy a domain name

There are several accredited domain name registrars and many resellers, often selling domains at great discounts. Here are some tips for those who decided to save money and buy a domain name from a reseller:

    Check the reseller's reliability. Find out if the site has an SSL certificate, a legal entity, real contacts - all these are reliability indicators.
    Register the domain for yourself. The domain name must be registered to the owner of the site, that is, to you, and not to any company or web studio. Carefully check the data specified during registration: the domain is registered to the one who owns it.
    Buy a domain together with hosting. Many hosting companies offer the purchase of domain names, and as a result it turns out to be much more profitable than a separate purchase of hosting and domain services. You save time, do not fear for the reliability of the reseller, and in some cases even get a domain as a gift. When paying for hosting for a year, HOSTiQ registers the domain for free. If you just buy a domain from HOSTiQ without subscriptions and additional services, you get a gift — three months of free virtual hosting.

What to use to create a website

Now let's talk in more detail about which platforms are better to use to create a website. If, for example, you are planning to create an online store for the sale of handmade goods and spend all your time making these goods, a website builder is a great option.

If you are going to create a blog that will constantly evolve, plan to change the design and add new features, it is better to choose a CMS.

To begin with, let's analyze the work with the website builder.
Website Builder

This is the easiest option for those who want to create a website as quickly as possible and start earning. To understand how the constructor works, you can go to SitePro in demo mode and create a preliminary version of your site.

Choose the template that suits you best, go to the designer and start changing everything that does not suit you: rearrange the menu blocks and shapes, select the background, add pages and text. When the site is ready, you just publish it and it starts working.

Minus — you will not be able to implement any original solutions or add new functions if they are not provided in the constructor.
Famous CMS

In terms of flexibility, content management systems definitely benefit from the designer. Let's look at the most common free CMS and compare them by four parameters:

    For which sites it is suitable.
    Easy to learn and use.
    Themes and plugins.
    Caching.

WordPress

WordPress is one of the most convenient and easy—to-use platforms. More than 60 million websites have been created on this CMS around the world, about one in seven websites on the Internet runs on WordPress. A good recommendation, isn't it?

    Blog, news site, catalog, online store.
    It is very easy to install on the site. You can do it yourself or entrust it to the installer. HOSTiQ offers an automatic WordPress installation. As for ease of use, WordPress can be called a leader among other CMS. Even a beginner can easily understand the admin panel.
 A special advantage of WordPress is a convenient editor in two versions: visual for the design of posts and text for working with HTML code.
    47,130 plugins, a large number of paid and free themes. The official website has a convenient filter by topic.
    The WordPress core does not implement page caching, for this you need to use plugins. One of the most popular is WP Super Cache, which creates static HTML files for site pages.

In this video, you can see how to administer a WordPress site.

Drupal

This is another popular CMS with a large community of developers and users.

    Large communities, news sites and forums, portals.
    Drupal is more difficult to learn and use than WordPress and Joomla. To use the capabilities of this CMS, you will have to spend more time studying the system.
    There are 35,637 additional modules on the official Drupal website that extend the CMS functions and 2,346 site design themes.
    Due to the built-in caching system, Drupal reduces the load on the server and speeds up page generation. In addition, you can use the Boost module to cache static pages.

In this video, you can evaluate how convenient it is to administer a Drupal site.

Joomla

Joomla is a free and fairly lightweight platform that allows you to use cheaper hosting plans and makes it an attractive option for novice webmasters.

    Blog, business card site, promo site, news site, online gallery, catalog, online store.
    Joomla is quite simple to install and configure, but the engine control panel is not intuitive WordPress, it is difficult to get used to it. In general, in terms of management, Joomla is simpler than Drupal, but more complicated than WordPress.
    On the official Joomla website you will find a large number of plugins and modules distributed by tasks. There are more than 3,000 free templates for Joomla sites and many paid options.
    The CMS includes the System Cache plugin, which provides automatic caching and speeds up the loading of the site in the browser.

The video will allow you to evaluate the management of the site using the Joomla platform and decide whether you want to work with it or not.

OpenCart

    Online store.
    There are 14,310 extensions on the official OpenCart website, with which you can endlessly upgrade your online store, and 1,849 themes.
    There are no built-in modules for caching. On the official website, you can download modules for page caching Page Cache or Boost.

In the video you can find detailed information about the functionality of the platform and see the administration panel.

PrestaShop

This is a popular system for creating an online store with a large community of more than 500,000 people.

    Online store.
    User-friendly interface, easy installation and management, convenient visual editor TinyMCE.
    On the PrestaShop add-ons website you will find more than 3,000 modules and 2,112 themes for any online stores.
    There are paid modules for caching Page Cache v3 and Cache Manager.

Magento

This is another specialized CMS for e-commerce. There are two variants of Magento: free Magento Community and paid Magento Enterprise with advanced functionality.

    Online store.
    Magento is not suitable for those who want the simplest installation possible. How to do it, see here:In general, Magento is not the easiest platform, so if you don't want to figure it out for a long time and rebuild it to suit your needs, it's better to choose another CMS.
    On the Magento website you will find 122 free themes and more than 800 paid ones. As for extensions, there are more than 2,000 options from third-party developers.
    Magento Enterprise includes the Full Page Cache module, which allows you to load pages in full, and not in separate blocks. At the same time, the page loading speed increases 2-3 times. For Magento Community, you can buy a Full Page Cache caching module.

So, let's say you have decided on an engine or have chosen a constructor. It's time to start creating a website.
Day 3. Creating a website

You can create a website yourself or entrust some tasks to freelancers. If you prefer the first option, you should find a good resource with information on the topic.

In the HOSTiQ knowledge base you will find training videos on the most popular CMS. For convenience, all video tutorials are distributed in playlists.
screenshot_3
Playlists on the HOSTiQ channel

Let's say you chose the WordPress engine. Go to the playlist dedicated to this CMS and watch the very first video, which tells in detail how to install WordPress on the site. Then there are lessons on installing a theme, creating headings, choosing various plugins.

To roughly imagine how the engine works and create a framework for your site, one or two days of hard work will be enough, and then weeks, months and years of improving the resource.

If you do not plan to spend time on self-creation of the site or do not cope with some parts of the work, you will have to contact specialists.
Working with freelancers
Why you may need a freelancer

    Individual design. There are many paid and free templates for website design, but if you want an individual design, you will have to hire a specialist.
    Layout and integration with CMS. When the design is ready, you will need to make up the pages and integrate the layout with the CMS. As a rule, this is done by the same person.
    Content filling. Unique useful content is one of the prerequisites for successful website promotion. To quickly fill the site with high-quality content, you can hire a copywriter.
    CMS revision. If you plan to make your website unique, add some special functions or fully customize it to the needs of the company, you will need the services of a web programmer who will refine the functionality of the engine.
    SEO optimization. A little later we will analyze the main ways to promote the site, however, if you are set up for a quick take-off of the resource in the search results, you can entrust this matter to specialists.

How to choose a freelancer

Here are some tips on how to choose a good freelancer and organize work with him correctly:

    Look at the freelancer's portfolio. If you hire a person on the freelance exchange, check the reviews and rating as well.
    Select several candidates and talk to each of them personally. It is better to make a list of questions in advance.
    Before hiring, specify all the important points: deadlines and penalties for delay, advance payment and payment method, the possibility of making edits.
    Write a detailed technical task, specify all the points that may cause doubts.

Day 4. Filling the site

Now that your site is ready, it's time to start filling. Content is important not only for the informativeness and usefulness of your site, but also for its promotion in search engines.
Adding a unique text

The first thing you need to know about content is that it must be unique and useful. You cannot copy articles from other sites or place a meaningless set of keywords instead of text. You are writing a text for the user, and the material should first of all be interesting and of high quality.

Unique and useful text can be added to any website. If this is a blog, the author's text will do, if the online store is a unique description of goods, articles that help you choose a particular thing, text on the main page telling about the store, its mission, features.
Adding images
Images in the article

Images make the text more readable and attractive. Moreover, images that complement the text with the correct name and alt attribute help to increase the relevance of the page for search engines. When adding illustrations, consider a few points:

    Choose large-sized images. At the same time, it is not necessary to insert a full image on the site, it is enough to leave a preview of the width of the page or column of text.
    Place images in the text. Search engines rate the text with appropriate illustrations higher.
    Add a signature and an alt attribute. The file signature reveals the essence of the image, and the alt attribute explains what is depicted on it. This helps search robots to assess how well the illustration fits the text, and if you prescribe keywords in these paragraphs (suitable in meaning), increases the relevance of the page.

Day 5. Website Promotion

To begin with, let's talk about SEO promotion tools, which no webmaster can do without.
Tools for promotion

To track how effective the promotion is, you will need Google Webmaster Tools.

With Google Webmaster Tools you can:

    Analyze search queries. In the report, you will see which search queries users used to visit your site, which pages they went to from the search, in which countries and from which devices they made requests.

see if there are any scanning errors. From the report, you will find out if there are any pages on your site that give the 404 code, if there were any problems with the server, whether the search engine uses your file robots.txt — in general, about everything that could interfere with the scanning of your site.
    Evaluate the site indexing speed. You can see how fast indexing is going and whether there are any failures due to incorrect site display.
    Optimize HTML. The report allows you to find pages without titles, with duplicate title and description tags.

HTML Optimization

    You will see indexing and query statistics.
    You will be able to edit sitelinks.
    You will diagnose the site for errors and violations.
    Get a list of sites with links to your resource.

A detailed list of Google Webmaster Tools.
What is important for promotion

The site's position in the search results depends on many different parameters, starting with the page loading speed and ending with correctly placed keywords. Here is an approximate list of items that need to be taken into account to promote the site:

    Optimized content.
    Indexing speed.
    The presence of an SSL certificate.
    Reference mass.

Let's analyze each of the points in more detail.
Optimized content


Experts advise to abandon the most high—frequency queries - words for which there were more than 5,000 impressions per month. In order for your resource to reach the top 10, Google must select it from all sites relevant to the popular query. It turns out that you will compete with millions of sites, many of which are larger and more popular than yours.
The trust of search engines in them is higher than in your newly created resource, which means that you will have to try hard to get into the top for the most popular queries.

In addition, popular queries tend to be quite general. For example, your goal is to attract people who want to buy a Samsung vacuum cleaner. Instead of choosing a high—frequency query "vacuum cleaner", which can be used to search for the history of the invention of the device, devices of other brands or ways to repair them, it is better to promote the pages by a less popular, but more specific query - "buy a samsung vacuum cleaner".
High frequency request
High-frequency
pylesosy request
Request with average frequency

You should not bet on the lowest frequency combinations either: too few people use them. Take requests with an average frequency for the semantic core: from 500 to 5,000 impressions. You can combine them with high-frequency ones.

The text of the main page of your site should contain these keywords. It is better to add keywords to the title — the h1 tag and the title of the page, and place the rest in the text.

You can immediately select pages for promotion and select keywords for which the user can find them, or vice versa — create pages for keywords.

Indexing speed in search engines

Indexing is when search robots find your site and add information about it to their database. After indexing, your site can be found through a search engine.

In order for the site to start indexing, you need to add its address to the addurl form of search engines. Here is the addurl of Google. However, adding a site via a form does not guarantee indexing. In order for search engines to add your site to the database faster, follow these recommendations:

    Unique content. A lot of copied texts can interfere with indexing, choose only white promotion methods. Violating the rules of search engines, you risk not being indexed at all.
    Creating a file robots.txt . This is a file that contains instructions for search robots, which pages and sections should and should not be indexed. If this file is not present, the robot indexes everything in a row, including sections that are not needed for promotion. As a result, indexing is delayed.
    Creation sitemap.xml . With this file, you tell the search robot the URLs of all the pages of the site, in what order they need to be indexed, how often the resource pages change, and other important information.
    Frequent content changes. The more often you update the content, the more search engines will look at you.
    Smooth operation of the site. With the help of web analytics tools, you can view the dynamics of site indexing. If the number of indexed pages has dropped sharply, most likely there are problems with access to your site, for example, due to a server crash. To ensure that the site is indexed constantly, and users do not have problems accessing your resource, choose reliable hosting.

Availability of an SSL certificate

An SSL certificate is a cryptographic protocol that provides more secure communication. Now sites that transmit user data and work over the HTTP protocol (without an SSL certificate) are marked with an invisible gray icon in the Chrome browser. But since January 2017, the inscription Not secure will be added to the icon.
Icon for sites without an SSL certificate
Icon for sites without an SSL certificate

In order not to scare off users with an insecure connection, it is better to immediately purchase an SSL certificate, especially since now it does not require large investments. You can even get it for free as part of a package of services: HOSTiQ gives you an SSL certificate from Comodo when buying virtual hosting services with the S4 tariff plan.
Building up the reference mass

The link mass is the number of open links that the user uses to get to your site from other resources. It is best if you are redirected from a site similar in subject matter, and the link itself will be located in an article with a unique text.

Here are some ways to increase the reference mass:

    Generate useful content. If you post useful and unique materials, you will be read, and links to your resource will be shared. This will naturally increase the reference mass.
    Share articles with other sites. Choose a site similar in subject and offer to exchange articles. You write a unique article, place keywords and links to your website in it and give it for publication. In return, you publish an article from a partner resource.
    Exchange links with sites similar in subject. Before exchanging links, find out the PR of the site. A link to a site with a lower PR can reduce the credibility of your resource.
    Buy links. If the budget allows, consider buying links on special exchanges. Services for the sale of links like LinkFeed.ru , Miralinks, Sape, Rookee partially provide security when buying and confirm the credibility of donor resources. You can buy temporary or eternal links. The former are much cheaper, the latter are more reliable and better indexed due to the thematic text around the link.
    Actively promote the site on forums. You can register on the thematic forum and put a link to the site in the signature. Next, you need to actively participate in the life of the forum: create your own topics, unsubscribe from others, give useful information and periodically mention your site.
    Promote the site on social networks. In social networks, you can create communities and public pages dedicated to the site, add links to the description of the group, discussions, and posts. You can also share links with other groups, mention your site in discussions or give information about it in open groups and comments (your comments must necessarily correspond to the topic of discussion and be useful if possible, otherwise they will simply be deleted as spam).

Step-by-step SEO promotion

Each of the above methods has its own characteristics, which are too long to list. To better understand the topic and bring your site to the top faster, use the step-by-step guide to SEO promotion. The HOSTiQ blog provides a detailed description of the methods of website promotion — read, learn and put into practice.

Days 6-7. Looking for ways to earn money

Your site has been indexed, and now customers can find it in a search engine. It's time to earn. Below we will tell you about several common ways to earn money on the site.
Banner placement
Banner
Banner

One of the ways to earn money on the site is to place banner ads, animated or static blocks with advertising information. The cost of placement depends on the number of unique visitors to your site.

While the site is not too popular, you can use the services of the banner advertising exchange to search for advertisers.

You choose how much space to provide for banners, but it is important not to overdo it here. Flashing blocks distract visitors from the content and are just annoying. Therefore, the love of banners can result in the loss of a solid part of the audience.
Placement of paid content

There are several ways to make money on paid content:

    Placement of customized articles. For example, the owner of a travel blog may publish an advertising article of a travel agency or airline.
    Writing advertising articles. The same blog owner can himself tell readers about the advantages of a travel agency.
    Special projects with promoted brands. These can be contests for readers or interesting joint projects. For example, a trip from a travel agency with a full description of everything that happens in the process.
    Paid access to content. You can restrict access to some part of the content: either set a fee for specific articles, books, music tracks, or grant access by subscription.

Partner programs

You can find affiliate programs on your topic. For example, if you have a blog about tourism, become a partner of a travel agency or airline. You place a banner or widget on the website and receive a certain amount from each ticket purchase, for example, 50% of the airline's commission.

You can arrange an affiliate program even with the hosting on which your site is hosted. You can participate in the HOSTiQ affiliate program: you place banners and links to the site hostiq.com.ua and for each user who ordered virtual hosting, reseller hosting, VIP hosting or VPS, you get $ 20, and for a client who wants to order a dedicated server - $ 40. Here you can learn more about the HOSTiQ affiliate program.

In fact, there are a great many options for affiliate programs. There are even special aggregators, for example ad1, where you can choose an affiliate program for your site, focusing on the areas of activity.

Summing up the results

Perhaps the main advice is not to make serious mistakes at the first stages of work, so that after a year of hard work it does not come to an understanding that everything was in vain, traffic does not think to grow, the server periodically lies, and you yourself are not completely sure why you need a website.

The more carefully you think through the first steps, the less you will have to fix and change. You can easily change your SEO promotion strategy or abandon an affiliate program that does not suit you. But if you choose an unsuitable website engine or low-quality hosting (and pay for its services for a year in advance), it will be more difficult to fix it.

Of course, and it's not the end of the world. If you are no longer satisfied with hosting, you can change it and in some cases not even lose the money spent on the package of services.

HOSTiQ has a great option for those who are tired of low-quality services: a change of hosting with a free transfer of your site. Moreover, if you have already paid for the services of another hosting provider, it is not necessary to wait until the paid period ends. When switching to HOSTiQ, you will be provided with a free period of hosting use for a period paid for by another hosting provider. It turns out that instead of a problematic hosting provider, you get reliable partners with a large knowledge base and a good support service and at the same time do not lose the money paid for the services of the previous company.

So, it's only been a week, and you have your own website, from which money is slowly but surely starting to flow. Of course, the work is not over yet. We can say that it has just begun. There is a constant promotion and improvement of your resource ahead, but the first steps have already been taken.

The main thing is that now you know that it is quite realistic to create a beautiful and fast website without a whole crowd of designers, programmers, SEO specialists and other specialists and start earning without frenzied traffic.

It is impossible to make a web site in 7 days, especially if you do everything point by point, as in this topic, the only way to make a site in a week is if you are a programmer yourself or use a constructor.
And in the real world, you will only design it for 2-4 weeks, then you will have to make up and program it for the same amount. I have been working in IT for 7 years, I have already developed several hundred websites. That's why I know what I'm talking about. The topic is relevant, if only to replace 7 days with 7 weeks.

No, you can't make anything out of the constructor afterwards. a CMS system is better.
After several sad attempts to promote something made on the constructor, I scored and turned to a local it company (my sister advised, they made the site in the states and promoted it). So they did and promoted it for a penny, and they add any whim (for a fee, of course, but judging by the experience joomla bends under almost any plugins.

Creating a profitable web site is hard work. Everything you can read about "easy ways to make money" or other "too good to be true" promises is just a way to make money by selling you a product, not a way for you to use the internet to make money.
You really need a lot of traffic to profit from your content even in cases where you produce the content yourself.
To write a good article or create a good infographic, you may have to spend a few hours allotted from your overall productive time.

Also, do not forget that the rating and traffic depend not on how many articles you have published, but on many other factors.
But if you work hard, then consistently for several months (or years) you can get to a web traffic level that will cover all your expenses and make you a good monthly profit.

The conclusion from this post is that yes, you can make a profit on the Internet without selling anything, but this requires hard work, patience, knowledge and a long-term plan.
Being a content publisher means taking care of your users, and once you manage to win their attention, everything else will gradually be attached.

Start by creating a high-quality website, focus on your content, patiently increase traffic, and sooner or later you will reach a point where earnings will cover your expenses and investments.
It won't happen overnight, but once it does, it will be consistently profitable for months or even years.
