Godaddy.com and Paypal Profit-Based Experimentations
August 18, 2007 11:30pm CST
Sometime earlier this week i've seen the Godaddy.com website that's offering webhosting and domains for less than $10 dollars a year. And since then, I was thinking that, since I have my PLR, MRR, Adsense and other moneymaking items from numerous giveaways, i'd start earning money with them thru godaddy.com, and since it costs $10 dollars a year, that gives me enough time to implement my moneymaking plans until next year. I just hope that they have something for $5 dollars or less. But on the other hand, is it possible to pay for godaddy.com's webhosting thru paypal.com? If I keep writing articles for associatedcontent.com steadily, I might have enough money to pay for my webhosting, and that means more time extended to test out my items to make money online. I currently have $17.46 in my Paypal account, so that means if I get $20 dollars in Paypal, I can have 2 years worth of experimental profit-based webhosting. $30 dollars can get me 3 years of it. That's a whole lot of time to play with my giveaway items and put money in my pocket. So is it possible to pay by Paypal for Godaddy's webhosting since it's cheap and low-cost? I don't have a credit card (and I don't need one since it's like loan money) or a debit card (I don't want to repeat the overdraft fees I did with my bank and get a negative balance), so is it possible to pay with Paypal? If this experiment works, I can continue until I get some more money to extend my time to make money off of my information products. If not, then I could simply abort the experiments and cancel my Godaddy webhosting. One more thing...does Godaddy allow websites to be used for commercial purposes like buying and selling, and lets me accept online/credit card payments? (Man, this topic is a mouthful...)

Yes per the godaddy website you can pay through paypal. Where did you see that deal? The cheapest package on their site is $2.80 every month for 36 months or $100.80 (this does not include registering a domain name) Go Daddy is decent for hosting, but before you buy your plan make sure it does everything you need it to. For example, there lowest plan may not support the coding you need to run a credit card, gallery, etc. Also, Go Daddy is not the best to use for custom programs. I had a friend who was hired by a company to build a custom database and they had horrible issues with GoDaddy because they did not offer any technical support. GoDaddy does not seem to have any restrictions as far as what you can or can't do on their servers (do any hosting people do that, if they are REAL hosting, not templates??).

Oh crud, my bad. Must've gotten the two of them mixed up. Well in that case, is there any ecommerce webhosting available for free then? I've been looking all over the web the past few days and found a small number of them, but I have my doubts. But then again, as they say..."nothing ventured, nothing gained". Perhaps i'll dip my toe in the water and put off spending my Paypal money while I find an company that allows free ecommerce webhosting and do a test run there before paying.
