    I'm sure there is a way, I'm still looking for it.
    I'm thinking it has something to do with the backend...

    But I was thinking... what if people go on a site, and they get a FREE .COM
    But... Something--> Something --> I make money LOL!

    I was thinking... for $1 you get a domain & hosting...
    BUT! They can only use the templates provided by me (which will contain like 4-5)
    Each template will have ad space which will have adwords which will come back to me.
    1 domain per credit-card.

    They don't use the domain for more then 30 days, the domain gets expired.
    If they use it... clearly they will get people going on it.. clearly some will click on some ads... which, in return, will make some ??? for me.

    Thoughts? Opinions?

    I suppose you meant adsense, instead of adwords. Wouldn't you be risking those sites? What if someone wants to set up an autoblog or maybe some other copyrighted content and the adsense pub id is yours, you could easily get screwed. Also I don't think it takes a genius to figure out how to change the adspace unless you have some kind of way to prevent that from happening.

    And then.. the question, would you be giving away the domain/hosting for good? I mean like do a whois transfer and stuff? It could be risky and eventually make you lose out on your investment.

    seoguy,

    The domain name stays on my end, and they transfer it.
    They cant edit the adsnese.

    Autoblog... I guess.. Yeah... Unless i target models/graphic designers/cake decorators any anyone else who JUST needs pictures for the portfolio, and limited it to... 50 pictures for example. BUT THEN, the amount of people visiting a portfolio site is VERY low..

    what i can think of is do competition on your blog..
    use content locker (maybe?) so that people have to fill in a survey or something to access that page
    once they do, they have to make a post and you choose a lucky person. (can be manipulated - like ask them to like your fb page and retweet to enter the contest etc)

    repeat the above steps for other domains

    Thats what i can think of possibly

    Just giveaway the .com, but have them pay for hosting. Works like a charm.

    What you're thinking is risking your adsense account for a ban. All the buyer needs to do is click on the ads plenty of times (if you know what i mean).

    Mmmm +1 indeed!

    I'm in Canada, so its postal code, gotta check out if they have it!

    So in other words, that is $4/month... but wait, hold on.. Lets say its the owner of the site... If they go on DAY_1 and enter their email/zip, ... they cant do it on day_8, can they? and I get paid again?

    I think as long as they complete different offers every time, you should be fine.

    Edit: 50th post, here's tupac at coachella.
