How I Host 1,268 Of My Domains For $9.95 Per Month
If you are online for any length of time and running one or more websites, you have probably tried several different web hosting companies. Over the years, I think I have probably used 10 different hosts, with varying levels of satisfaction, prices and support.
I've been working online since 1995. During that time I have accumulated over 1,500 domains in a wide range of topics. I learned a long time ago that a good domain name has value just like a good piece of real estate. An obvious domain name, such as quitsmoking.com (my site), gets lots of "type-in" traffic. People just assume the site exists, and type it directly into their browser, without going to a search engine.
The problem with all the domains that I owned was that many of them were not setup and running. Setting up all of them could be a time consuming and expensive process. So, while people might be typing in a domain that I owned, if I hadn't set it up, they would get a blank page. I was losing money!
ONE POSSIBLE HOSTING SOLUTION
A couple years ago I got my own server at EV1. It costs $109 per month and allows me to add unlimited domains and gives me ample drive space and bandwidth to host all the domains I want. The problem is that setting up each domain and the web pages for each takes too much time. I setup about 250 domains on that server, but got sidetracked. I still had hundreds more domains that needed a place to live!
In December of 2005, I was reading an email newsletter where the publisher recommended a particular hosting company. He had used it successfully for several years and was finally comfortable recommending it to his readers. I respected the publisher so I checked out the hosting site.
THIS WAS IT!
What I found seemed too good to be true: host unlimited domains for $9.95 per month, with 20 gigabytes of storage space and one terabyte of bandwidth! Plus, they offer a unique feature that permanently increases your allotment of storage space by 160 MB per week and increases bandwidth by 8 GB per week. That should be more than enough for all but the busiest of sites.
So, I decided to take a chance and I signed up. If you pre-pay for a year, you save the one-time setup fee of $49.95. You can even pre-pay for two years and get an account for $7.95 per month instead of $9.95. I went for the one year plan. Heck, the one-year cost was only slightly more than one month on my dedicated server!
I began to add domains to my account. You can fully host a domain, which means you actually upload pages you have created and serve up web pages like a typical site. You can also forward a domain to another site, without having to create any pages. You can mirror another site on the server. You can park a site, which automatically displays a "coming soon" page. And finally you can "cloak" a site, which puts a frame around another site so that your domain name remains in the address bar of your browser, but the other site is shown. The cloaking was what interested me the most.
While surfing the web, you have probably seen web pages that display nothing but ads or clickable keywords and a search box. These "domain monetization" pages are provided by several companies to anyone who wants to make money from a domain with traffic. By forwarding or cloaking your site, these monetization services will automatically present a page that contains keywords relevant to the topic of your domain name. If people click a link, you get paid a few cents or even a few dollars, depending on what advertisers are willing to pay.
So I started using a service called DomainSponsor to monetize my unused domains. To setup a domain, I simply logged into my new hosting service, clicked Add New Domain and entered the domain name and my special tracking code from DomainSponsor. I didn't have to create any web pages for the domain. The hosting company automatically generates a cloaking page that properly displays the monetization page.
I STARTED FEELING GUILTY
I began adding sites to my new hosting account. After I had about 500 domains in the account, I started feeling a little guilty. Was this really an unlimited account? Could I really add all my domains? Well, I recently finished adding every site I own that wasn't already hosted in another one of my accounts. The total is 1,268 domains in one little $9.95 per month account.
I even moved several sites that actually had content on them from two other hosting companies. I was able to cancel one account that was costing me $50 per month, and I downgraded another host plan, saving another $70 per month. That's $1,440 per year that I am saving on those two accounts alone.
The hosting account includes all the features you'd expect (PHP, CGI, MySQL, email accounts, stats and more) plus nice extras like the one-click install of several useful programs including a photo gallery, blog and more.
I have had a couple of occasions to contact tech support and have received most responses within 2 hours. All my issues were resolved quickly.
So, where can you get this unlimited domain hosting? Click Here and get started..
They even have a 97 day money back guarantee.
If you need to host a single domain or multiple domains, or if you have domains you bought but haven't developed, stop wasting money and host the sites now.
Best of success!
