Have you ever wanted to start up your own website? Well, the first step, obviously, is to buy a domain.
The domain is a unique name for your website, and provides an address at which your clients can reach you. After getting a domain, your next step is to get proper hosting.
Fortunately, a lot of domain-purchasing websites also provide hosting, although it is usually a minimal amount of space/bandwidth.
Anyways, when I was 12, my friend and I did this. We wrote video game reviews, previews, etc. and ended up generating a little bit of profit (any money made when you're 12 years old seems like a fortune).
To conclude, the best - and cheapest - place I've found to purchase a domain is with Yahoo!. For $3.95 per year (!),Yahoo will set you up with your own website name. They'll even provide a decent-looking starter web page, seen to the left of this article.
Anyways, if you want to make as much money as I did when I was 12, look into something like Yahoo! domains. It's an easy and fun way to make money.
Oh, and before I forget....another fun thing to do with domains is to register names that you think will be popular in the upcoming future. For example, if you see a celebrity on American Idol and think that they're going to win it all, buy www.FantasiaBlahBlah.com for $3.95 from Yahoo domains. If it doesn't work out, you've lost a minimal amount of money.
However, if you manage to guess an upcoming company name, or popular new activity, these domains can sell for thousands of dollars. For example, www.sex.com sold for millions of dollars a few years ago. You can even buy the domain name off of someone else and hope its value appreciates like an investment.
Anyways, just thought I'd educate you guys on another way to make easy money. Good luck!
