How to Start a Porn Site with xStreamer

I have been using xStreamer turnkey software for the past 25 months. I am writing this article to explain how to start an adult website with xStreamer. And yes, this article also throws an insight into how to make money from a porn site. In writing this article, I ensure that I refer to no how-to-do guides, documents and references. The process of starting and profitably operating a porn site is embedded deep in my grey cells.

Read on.

Porn Niche

I chose double blowjob niche. There are many other profitable niches. However, there are hardly any sites that focus exclusively on double blowjob niche. For your information, double blowjob niche is popularly known as sandwich blowjob niche.

The idea is to get quality and relevant traffic. Niche sites have better click-through rates. I’m promoting certain penis-size enhancers on my site. Click-through rates are amazing. This clearly brings me to one conclusion- Publishers and advertisers have better success rates on niche sites.

Adult Hosting

I’m not interested in shared hosting. In case of shared hosting, server space and resources are shared between multiple websites. This can be catastrophic to my adult tube site. I may lose out significant volume of traffic to my competition. Therefore, I chose dedicated hosting.

Uptime of the adult web host should be at-least 99.9%. Other important parameters to be considered are storage and RAM. And yes, online support (preferably 24 / 7) is mandatory.

I chose M3Server owing to the following reasons:

  • Free server setup
  • 9% uptime
  • 1 year free domain
  • 300 GB Storage
  • 4 GB RAM
  • Feature – rich M3 Control Panel

M3 Server hosting is affordable. There are many reputed names in the industry. A vast majority of them are not affordable.

Porn Site Script

Video

Ever observed the quality of video-player in popular tube sites? Almost all the popular tube sites have sophisticated video players.

A sophisticated video player has:

  • Navigational bars
  • Clean UI (User Interface)

It should support pre-roll and post-roll ads. It should let you add watermarks to your videos.

Let’s now understand the most popular video formats.

AVI, MPEG and WMV video formats are supported by many popular porn tube sites. Your adult tube site should be no exception. Apart from these video formats, it should support other formats such as QuickTime, DIVX, 3GP, FLV, etc.

And how do you upload videos to your website? Don’t do it manually. I use the Bulk Video Upload feature of xStreamer. It saves me a lot of time. And yes, xStreamer supports all the popular video formats. Websites designed with this turnkey software are equipped with sophisticated video player.

I have this practice of grabbing double blowjob videos from popular adult tube sites. Earlier, I used to labor over each and every video. I now use the Video Grabber and Embedder module of xStreamer. I just link the popular tube sites with my site and get immediate quality content to my site.

Of course, I approach porn production studios for quality and niche specific content. I use a combination of video production and video grabbing for my adult tube site. This strategy works well for me.

Payments

PayPal, the world’s most popular payment gateway, is not adult content friendly. There are alternatives such as CCBill, Epoch, Epay, etc. xStreamer comes with CCBill.

Porn tube sites should have at-least two payment gateways. I approached the support team of Adent. We had a discussion and in less than a couple of hours, they added another adult payment gateway DusPay.

It’s not a safe strategy to put all your eggs in one basket. If something goes wrong with your one payment gateway, there’s another payment gateway to keep your site functional.

Responsive Design

It’s a known fact that audiences love watching porn on mobiles, laptops and computers. Adult tube sites should be responsive. xStreamer uses Bootstrap 3 to make the tube sites fully responsive.

Themes are good. Customization is great. I know a bit of programming. I have access of code design and functionality. Sometimes, I tweak the code and adjust the look of my adult tube site. If you have any doubts or require any assistance, feel free to approach the support team of Adent.

Monetization

As mentioned earlier, my adult tube site gets quality traffic.

My tube site has 120 videos. 60 videos are behind a pay-wall. 60 videos can be accessed for free.

I make money through subscriptions. I use free videos to convert casual audiences into loyal and paying patrons. It’s a simple strategy. There’s no rocket engineering involved.

A certain portion of my website space is sold to sponsors. I make money whenever a visitor / prospect purchases the product (promoted by the sponsor) from my website. I make money through clicks.

Free videos have advertisements – pre-roll and post-roll. Free videos have pop under messages as well. Premium videos do not have any advertisements.

Sometimes, I accept content from amateurs. Amateur content quality is not HD. But amateur videos attract a lot of traffic. Premium videos are of superior quality.

Scalability

Of late, my site has been receiving great traffic. I’m happy.

Truth be told, I was worried initially. I had a few questions such as:

  • Will my adult tube site handle traffic effectively?
  • Should I chose a different hosting plan?
  • What if my site crashes?
  • Will I lose traffic to my competition?

These questions use to trouble my mind. I spoke to the support team. xStreamer tube sites are horizontally scalable. Adult tube sites that are horizontally scalable can handle massive volumes of traffic. Moreover, xStreamer supports a range of streaming servers. Tube sites will not crash. I have distanced myself from unnecessary fears and doubts.

Now that you know how to start a porn site, I hereby suggest you to begin your research on profitable niches. Set your sights on competition, CPC and volume. Target both long-tail and short keywords that are relevant to your niche. Promote your website on adult content friendly platforms such as Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, etc.

No suggestion is small. No doubt is irrelevant. No question is redundant. Ask questions, get your doubts clarified and seek suggestions. I’m here to assist you in your endeavors. Cheers!
