    So After studying for 2 months straight day and night, and trying (barely) at e-pimping. I have moved on to other things. I am now working on doing CPA email submits, how hard could it be huh...

    Well I got the landing pages up (I have no HTML experience) and they look decent. My problem is that I'm using a free domain with .uuuq.com as the domain. also my hosting. I've seen the cc.co domains, but isn't that just as unprofessional looking?

    Most books say you can do this for free but I'm not sure if I should really start backlinking and sending traffic to this site if Its not going to rank in google (which is what I read somewhere)

    My Question then is this:

    1. Why do people say this can be done successfully for free.

    2. Am I wrong or paranoid and should just leave the ugly domain and try it. (how will my AM look at this ugly domain, unprofessional?)
    I'm not blanking my referer. I need this to be mainly white hat.

    3. Should I just wait and buy a top level $10 .com domain and be done with it. (kinda slows everything I want to do to a grinding halt until funds are replenished)


    Thanks....

    You can get a .info domain for 99 cents. If your website is information based this wouldn't sway too many leads away. Show the the hungry the food and they will take a bite. And it will rank in google as soon as the spiders hit the page, which is the purpose of backlinks.

    I would also go for a .info domain.

    Yes your AM would look down upon it because it doesn't look professional.

    I got accepted into NB with a co.cc domain. I think it's easy to point at the .xxx and say that's what makes it unprofessional when it's just as likely the site itself is unprofessional, hence the lack of confidence to drop money on a 'legit' looking domain to begin with.

    Quality content is quality content, doesn't matter where it's hosted imo.

    You also want to make sure you have keywords as the domain name. For example, if you are promoting "crazy weight loss", you want that term in your domain name.

    Yeah, namecheap.com will sell you a .info for $2.99 for the first year, free whoisguard domain "anonymizer", free DNS, free email forwarding. I have no interest in them (note the lack of an affiliate link) but I'm in the process of moving about 30 domains from godaddy to namecheap.

    With the email forwarding you can create professional looking info@my-niche.info emails that dump into another email box, like Gmail, and you can set up gmail to send email out From: that address.

    Namecheap takes paypal, so it's a no brainer. I realize the need to do things cheaply, or free. I'm in that boat right now. But $2.99, really, you can skip a cappucino and pay for that.
