I can't get rich online and neither can you. Topics include why you won't get rich with your blog, ideas you wish you had thought of, and other Internet phenomena.

You want to get rich with your blog? Maybe you think Adsense will let you retire? Sorry, it's not going to happen.

Choosing A Webhost

You can’t get rich if you pay too much for a webhost. When I was searching for some place to host this site, I found offers ranging from ridiculous (25 megabytes of storage for $15/month) to obscene (500 gigabytes of storage for $4/month). The former had absolutely no appeal, and the latter just seemed shady. There’s no way a host can afford to give their users that much space, so they must be massively overselling their available resources. My current host cut me a good deal, mostly because I work at the same company as the owner. It’s good to know people.

Anyway, he’s looking to expand, and I thought I’d give him a quick plug. In return, he’s letting me set the price on new subscription plans. So I’m asking you, my loyal readers, how much would you pay for the following package?

  • 3 gigabytes of transfer per month
  • 1 gigabyte of storage
  • Up to two domain names hosted
  • Unlimited subdomains
  • 20 email accounts
  • 4 databases
  • Other features on request

So, how much would you pay per month? Leave a comment, and if you’d like me to add anything, just let me know. I think this package would be perfect for a new blog, and there’s plenty of room to grow.

    hmmm… well comparing it to my current host, godaddy, it’s a small package and I think it would be hard to go above 3 dollars a month.

    4-7 dollars a month

    I just reached your blog by entrecard and I’m dropping a line to say that I like it. It looks to me as good stuff.

    However it is hard to get money online if you don’t even monetize your blog :)

    Keep up the good work
