Question about building membership sites.

by Jason Zalesky 2 replies
I am looking into maybe creating a PLR membership site. I was wondering if anyone has done this and what kind of hosting etc does it require? I am a member of several PLR sites and some are very expensive. I have not owned a membership site so I am looking for a good one to use and what I should expect on hosting.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks,
Jason

    Hi Jason,

    As far as you are not going to host and letting your members download
    many many videos, i think a simple hostgator like a/c will be fine.

    Also make sure you pick right, membership solution(script)
    and (optional) content management system to manage the content
    if you are going to have many many webpages in your membership site.

    I have helped many many Warriors to help them build membership websites,
    and the best combination i have found is ...aMember + Wordpress
    i.e. You install a blog, tweak its design you want, make all posts
    and entries for the downloads and links. And protect this Blog folder
    with aMember.. This is best combination in sense of security, easy
    to use, and manage, scalability...

    Also if membership is going to be content intensive, you may switch wordpress with Joomla...but i do not recommend as Joomla for avg user
    is difficult to use as compared to wordpress.

    Hope this help,

    Hi Jason
    I have run membership sites for years. Like already mentioned, it depends on what your PLR will be. Audio/Video is a space taker, I recommend bluehost.com their service is great and uptime is better than hostgator. HG goes down often and many of its servers are black listed (automatic spam) HG hosts a load of adult sites and that could be the reason
    I use aMember plus 4images for my member sites, which are mainly graphics,powerpoint,animations, wallpapers and various zip files.
