    Anywhere in the world building WP sites.
    If you shop around, you can find a $5/mo hosting. Domain cost about $10 per year. The quality is not bad at all. At least that should get you started. Learn how to use WordPress. Start with a free template.

    Use the remaining fund to promote your site. Perhaps first build some backlinks manually to gain momentum. And then pick a service to bring in more link juice.

    Start with a micro niche. Don't try to target competitive keywords at first. Your goal is to get the highest return as possible, then perhaps sell the site. Use the profit to build even more sites.

    Hostgator for hosting.
    Use a Godaddy coupon for a domain, they give out $3 domains pretty frequently.
    Then install wordpress and spend the rest of the money on SEO services

    U can use fiverr, but make sure you will research first which gigs are really good. You can search also BHW to find out.

    I will suggest you to buy some gigs, which submit your site to hundreds of directories. This will index really fast and maybe aslo rank your site as well

    I'd do the following:
    -Get a .info domain at 1$
    -Get free hosting from 000webhost
    -Create your first tiers manually(high quallity)
    -Then invest money (49$ left :D ) into fiverr gigs to increase the power.

    You can definately get into some easy/medium competition niches ;)

    You can install wordpress on 000webhost. Either manually or by using fantastico (?).
    Check YouTube for "how to install wordpress 000webhost."

    I'd get a domain + hosting and then promote it through the BST section here.

    here is my plan:

    1. will pay for keyword research from a member here, he will provide me keyword that i can rank easily - 10 $
    2. domain plus hosting ranging from 1 to 15 bucks
    3. buying 1000 word article or 15 articles from fiverr - 5 to 10 bucks
    4. investing the rest of the money in seo fiverr gigs or for services from the members here( i can really use your suggestion for the seo part- which providers should i choose)

    [1] hostgator hosting $10, i already have one so i just used addon domain
    [2] .com from godaddy with coupon, $3.5
    [3] write some review or have someone write it for you ($3.5-5 per article)

    My earning in less than a month, with only $3.5 startup money = $68

    I never see these guys mentioned, but they are actually a pretty solid host for cheap. I've used them just to add another host/ip to my network before. You pay for usage:

    1. Research services like article directory, link directory etc. in this forum. Find a suitable one for yourself, by yourself - $0
    2. Use Downloads section to find suitable script (if not found (in rare case) use google) - $0
    3. Buy hosting from hostgator using coupon gator10 - (first month cost drops to) - $0.01
    4. Buy a good (related to your service) .info domain, from godaddy based site, like hostingdude.com - $2.21

    Total Cost - $2.22
    Balance - $47.78

    If you research your services idea well (from this forum), you will recover your domain fees + next month onwards hosting fees in the first month itself, and you will also make good profit.

    Use the balance to build backlinks to your site and promote it so that you sell your service well.

    Best idea, JV with me and you will bypass even the domain and hosting cost. Use the full $50 to promote and build backlinks and we share profit 50-50.
