Total costs related to this web site
First published on July 2, 2014
So far, my objective is to keep the costs to a minimum.
I have plenty of things to do before I will look for further investment.
The only cost related to the web site was purchasing the domain name.
I purchased the domain name from godaddy.com for a total of $3.15
On Sep 15, I decided to pay another $5 to buy 30 links with high PR
from www.fiverr.com. Now, four months later, I can't say I noticed any improvement in traffic or revenue. At least my action did not seem to have any negative repercussions either.
I also decided to purchase two more domain names,
which I may use in the future and I discovered that the asking price
was higher than $3.15. So I used a different browser and what do you
know, I was offered again a dot com domain for only $3.15. It appears
godaddy placed some cookies when I first purchased this domain and my
further attempts to buy another domain name came with additional costs.
Once I learnt the trick, I purchased a third domain name, using the third browser, for the same price.
For the hosting, I use the free services of
They are reliable and I did not have to contact them, because there were no issues. I may need to convert to a paid plan once I will move over to WordPress or similar. I also became an affiliate for them, so if any of my visitors will purchase their services, I should get some financial reward.
