    Hi again, everyone!

    Recently, I had a thread, asking for help with a movie streaming site. I appreciate all of the replies, but I've decided to take a (more) legal route.

    On to business...

    I've decided to start and run a porn site. Something that begins as a tube site, then expand as the site grows and monetizes. Basically, I'd live some advice on any scripts, themes, plugins, etc. that are cheap (or free). Also, I'd like any recommendations on domain registrars and hosts that allow adult content.

    I've seen many comments on here saying that it costs a lot of money to start a site like this, but I'm trying to start in the cheapest way and build up.

    Also, I'd like any advice on SEO, and traffic building, as well as any ways to monetize through ads and affiliates (I hear there are ad networks and affiliates that aren't so adult friendly).

    Lastly, I'd like to add this: Content.

    Where are some places I can get free or cheap content. I want content to be as unique as possible. Also is it best to host videos on my own servers? Or through third parties?

    I appreciate any comments, feedback, etc. I'll continue to do some research before taking any further steps into the industry.

    *Side note: a friend of mine told me that I could use downloaded premium content and other probably copyright material and use it as long as I host off shore. Is this an option? Especially with the many popular porn videos that can be obtained?*

    *Side note 2: as mentioned on my other post, I am considering a TRUSTWORTHY partner. Someone that is interested in this niche as well. I have a bunch of plans for it, and think there is money to be made*

    You can just host your porn website on a shared hosting and upgrade to higher platform as the traffic increases. To host vidoes on your own server, you will require high performance VPS or dedicated server which will be costly for a startup so go for 3rd party websites for now. For content, you can hire a freelancer for writing contents for you. I have hired a freelancer who writes around 400-500 word unique article for $25 /article.

    For SEO I never did for adult sites and in some countries adult sites are banned.
    For Traffic buy banner space on other sites to gain more exposure. Forum signature works a for long time in promotion so go with adult forums.
    There are so many ways to build traffic just some people to add their favorite videos on your site or similar method to gain daily traffic.

    Go for some paid advertising. It`s work best in terms of adult traffic.Find the high traffic site using alexa and buy the ads from there.
