    Hey everybody

    my website hosting is about to expire, i had it since late 2011, the site is mostly my play around/ test stuff on site, currently i have a promotion running on it only making about $5 to $10 a day,

    The domain has been used for many website since i had it from, sports, to betting, to money making?.
    The thing I have on it now I would like to work on sow it can make more money but the domain name dose not fit the subject at all.

    Option 1. I was wondering if I should extend the hosting and pay $90/1year and keep the domain making the little money

    Option 2. Get new domain and pay $106/3 years and make it a nice site where it can make more money

    Option 3. Pay $90/1 year Turn it into an adult site
    and get a new domain for the other idea and pay 106/3 years

    Option 4. Scrap domain and move on to new domain and transfer my idea to new domain

    sorry for long post, just wanting to see what you guys think

    Option # 1, Never leave the Money Making Machine go away, Even Site is making 50$ Per Month for You, better to keep it.

    Go with Option #1, if you are making any kind of profits from a domain, keep them :)

    Wonder what type of hosting you are using for $90/year.. that sounds costly. You can downgrade your hosting if you are not getting much visitors and keep the money making website live.

    One thing I would never do is register a domain with a hosting company. I take it this is what you have done.

    Option 1 all the way.But you need to cut the cost a bit lower.I used offshore hosting servers to cut down my expense.

    You should see the main concept of your website. You need to focus first.

    Make your affiliate site and traffic flow.
    Then you will get the money
