  1. Choose Your Revenue Model

Although the revenue models are all about how to make money from porn, your selected revenue model will also decide many other things about your business model, content source, marketing tactics, investment budget, and workforce strength. There are tons of ways to make money from porn, but not every way is suitable for everyone. It heavily depends on the type of porn website you want to start. So, before you choose your revenue model, choose the type of porn website; the revenue model would sort itself automatically. This is how:

Though there are dozens of sub-adaptations, currently four major types of porn websites and their revenue models are in trend:

  • Porn Tube Sites
  • Porn Pay Sites
  • Adult Webcam Sites
  • Adult social media sites

We will talk about porn tube sites later on, which is the easiest of all to start with. For now, let’s talk about the other three forms of porn websites, how they work to make money?

Porn Paysites make money from the subscription charges they take from users to let them watch their content. These sites offer multiple packages with different types of access such as daily, weekly, monthly, and annual subscriptions. Just like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Amazon prime if we talk about mainstream paysites. If you want some inspiration, you can browse popular premium porn sites such as Brazzers, Reality Kings, and Bangbros, etc. Source of content for such sites in mainly in-house productions and from a number of partner porn studios in their network. Generally, big porn studios come up with their in-house Paysites.

Adult webcam modeling sites are the newest source of erotica on the internet. How adult webcam sites make money? Through user-generated content. Yes! These sites allow anyone to sign up as models and perform on live cam shows. The major source of income for webcam sites is the commission from the models. Live shows viewers pay these models in the forms of tips, purchasing nudes, clips, and other stuff. Whatever models make, the webcam site takes a percentage cut and gives away the rest to the models. You can take some inspiration from popular webcam sites like LiveJasmine, Chaturbate, and BongaCams. These sites make billions, FYI.

Adult social media is the newest form of the adult entertainment business that too practices user-generated content to attract users. These sites function similar to mainstream social media like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, except there is no restriction on pornography or adult content. Popular adult influencers and models sign up on sites like OnlyFans and ManyVids and share their uncensored content with followers. The sites allow models to charge a premium subscription fee from the users for following them. The sites make money by charging commissions on their models’ earnings. The models also sell digital content and products to fans.

Finally, Porn tubes. These are the biggest source of free internet porn in today’s era. Their strength is their massive traffic, as they use Ads to make money, rather than charging from their users. Of course, they also have premium membership plans with added benefits, but their primary revenue source is Ad-money. Some of the biggest names in porn tube business are Pornhub, Xvideos, xHamster, YouPorn, and PornTube. You can compare these sites from YouTube. They allow users to upload content, and they share Ad-money with their uploaders. Porn Tube business is the easiest of all porn business ideas, as you don’t have to worry about content and models. Everything is user-generated.

What’s your favorite porn website model?

Choose your website model carefully, as based on the model you select, you have to be ready for the subsequent levels of efforts required from this point forward. All the steps from this point will depend on your business model, revenue model, content source, and the niche you select. You can shuffle-up the steps 1 and 2, but when you move to the third step, be ready with your business plan. Read on the internet, consult experts, and attend adult business webinars. 

If you want my advice, a porn tube is the easiest website to start. It requires the least investments in terms of money, time, effort, and the workforce. You could be managing a porn tube business as a one-man army, anonymously. Besides, the webcam-modeling site is also an easy undertaking, if you use a model supplier script, rather than hiring your own models. 

  1. Finalize and Lock Your Domain Name

Getting a domain name seems like a very simple job, except it isn’t exactly that simple. For starters, be advised the choosing a domain name means taking your first steps towards building a brand identity. It’s a long-term commitment, and requires some strict analysis of current trends, future predictions, SEO, marketing feasibilities, and availability, of course. 

The first tip for choosing your domain name is keeping it synchronous to your brand name, and the brand name should be in harmony with your niche. You want people to identify your business uniquely, and the name should shout out your business activity clearly. For example, if your niche is amateur porn, go for a domain name that talks about Amateur porn. Say, Amatuerpornxx.com, Amatuerxxporn.com. 

Apart from this, we would suggest you keep the following points in mind too:

  • It should be easy to spell, type, pronounce and identify uniquely.
  • All the popular social media usernames should be available in the original form
  • Purchase all popular variations of the domain. Say, .com, .net, .io, .uk, .us, etc. 
  • Besides, go for porn specific extensions such as .porn, .webcam, .tube, .xx, etc. 
  • Put 301 redirects on all variations of domains and extensions to your primary domain

We understand that following most of these tips would cost you a bit of extra dollar, but it’s a good way to not only prevent your brand name from being hijacked but also helps in adult SEO. If you are planning to give a long-term commitment to your porn website business, the extra expenditure is all worth it.

Be advised that not all popular web-hosting companies accept adult content. You should go for dedicated adult hosting solutions like Vice Temple and M3Server to host your website. Besides, you also need an SSL certificate (HTTPS) for security. Luckily, you don’t have to worry much about it, as most of the adult web hosting companies offer a free SSL certificate for at least a year with the hosting plan.
