Make Money Online Free

It’s another Snow Day here in New York! We’re buried in about 10 to 15 inches of snow throughout the 5 boroughs and all the schools are closed… which means, I’m off from work since I work for a teacher!

I apologize for not posting and updating in a while, but life becomes hectic sometimes. I’m sure you know this. However, it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped making money online! I have several payment proofs to post, and I hope to get to it in a few minutes, but I have some big news to share!

I have FINALLY grown some balls and purchased a hosting plan for this blog; Make Money Online Free!

It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time, and with the recent surge of people losing their blogger blogs, I decided it was about time.

At least 5 people that I know around the blogger-sphere, has recently woken up one day and found their blog gone! Vanished completely! All their hard work, down the drain.

I’ve even been in contact with a couple of them, one (ebele) who was lucky to contact Google (who owns Blogger.com) and get her blog back, but another who was not so much.

The response he got was the following:

“Sorry, but “(removed for privacy reasons)” will not be restored. It was confirmed as spam. Blogger suggests that you read the TOS.

http://www.blogger.com/content.g

http://www.blogger.com/terms.g

http://www.google.com/terms_of_service.html

Here’s what we’re seeing, with a lot of the confirmed spam blogs, right now. Maybe this will help to explain your problem.

(Please note that blogs are removed not only for hosting spam, but for potential TOS violations such as Copyright Infringement, linking to websites which provide illegal downloads, little to no unique content, scraped content / auto blogging, large blogs with multiple, unfocused / unrelated subjects, content and links referencing Affiliate / GPT / PTC / PTS activity, etc.)”

So apparantly, they’re really cracking down on blogs that contain “content and links referencing Affiliate / GPT / PTC / PTS activity, etc.)”

This definitely scared me!

I have put a TON of work into this blog over the past two years, and I’m not ready for all that hard work to go down the drain, especially, since this blog now makes me a decent passive income every month without doing much.

How To Purchase And Set Up Hosting For A Blogger Blog?

This was the question that prevented me from purchasing and using hosting before. I say.. “and using”, because I have indeed purchased hosting before from GoDaddy, but was NEVER able to set it up. Even after calling their customer service numerous times, I wasn’t able to get much help with setting up my blog and I was only getting talked into circles. I heard a few times that it wasn’t possible to set up hosting on a Blogger blog, that I would need to first transfer everything to WordPress.

Whether this is true or not, I still have no clue.

But I’ve found a solution to my problem.

hostgator hosting On researching hosting companies, I found HostGator.com, which I’ve heard of before and I’m sure you probably have too. They are one of the biggest and most popular hosting companies out there!

They currently have a promotion going on where you get 20% off using the coupon code SPRING.

I was able to purchase hosting from HostGator, for this blog, for 1 year … for a total of just about $66.

Now, I’m not sure of your budget or how serious you are about making money online with your blog or website, but for me, I CANNOT afford to lose everything so this price to pay is worth it.

The reason I chose HostGator, is because it was the lowest hosting plan I could come across, with plans starting at $4.95 per month!

Another reason is because they offer FREE TRANSFER OF YOUR BLOG!

That’s right.

I filled out the form and completely eliminated the headache of having to transfer everything myself, because HostGator will now take care of that part and send me an email when my blog is all set up on it’s own hosting.

*Fingers crossed* that this goes well, but I’ve contacted them via phone about 3 times in the past hour or so, and got excellent customer service, so I’m confident in their abilities, and happy that I don’t have to do the work myself.

So if you’re one of those people that were considering purchasing your own hosting for a while now, HostGator, is definitely a company to check out!

I’m sure it will take me a little time to get use to my new control panel after everything has been set up, so if you don’t see me posting for a while, that could be why.

But I can tell you that my mind has been never felt more at ease than it is right now, knowing that after my blog is transferred from Blogger’s hosting, it can never be deleted for ‘spam’.

    Good for you, hun!

    I'm already with Hostgator, but didn't even know they can do the transfer for you.

    You know I've been meaning to move my blog this year. It's good to know Hostgator can do transfers because that's one of the main things I've been dreading: moving it myself.

    I'm gonna get in touch with them.

    Happy moving, hun. Good decision.

    Congrats on your decision to move over to a self hosted blog. I unfortunately was a victim of having my blog deleted. However, I did not even bother contacting anyone from Blogger or Google. From what I’ve seen and heard from others it would've been a complete waste of time. I just licked my wounds and moved over self hosting.

    I too decided to go with Hostgator for some of the same reasons that you did. I hope that your transition goes by well. If I can get the hang of it I'm sure everyone else can:-)

    @MissEb and Sabrina

    Thank you guys for the encouragement!! Yes it feels a lot better knowing that my content is now safe. I can't wait for the move … and yes I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon enough.

    Good decision. Never hesitate to use WordPress after this.

    @Free Stuff Online,

    I believe I'm going to have to start using WordPress now, because the response from Hostgator says that I do need to transfer everything over to wordpress since Blogger doesn't allow them access to the FTP. Whatever that means.

    I am still working on the whole transfer.. and I'll probably do an update about it when it's finished.

    It’s a good move for you. Hostgator is one of the reliable web hosting providers today. Their customer support is very responsive and you can installed wordpress easily via their fantastico installer.

    Yes, I haven’t regretted moving to my own hosting and its been pretty easy to figure out so far. And I def like the peace of mind!
