If you’re looking to start your own Servers List Website and you want a detailed perspective on how to do this, then you should check out this guide.
Is it still worth it ?..
If you’re asking yourself if it’s still worth it, then you should probably change your thinking about this. Check the following spots:
- It’s a niche that will never run out of business.
- New games will appear constantly so you will always have new content possibilities.
- People who own servers and want to promote it will pay you good money to put their server up front.
These are just a few reasons that should keep you on this idea, keep on reading, you’re doing great!
How should I start ?
Everybody wants to do it easy and fast, but guess what: It takes time and effort to build a great website and community that users will want to come back to for information. It is not a 10 minutes job that you do and just wait for the passive income to add up into your account.
So, actually, where should you start ?
You should start with the idea. You need to get yourself involved in what Game you want to target. Lets say you are a Minecraft player or Server owner and you have some kind of knowledge in that field ( this is a bonus for you ) and you want to start your own Servers List website, then probably the best fit for you would be to start a Minecraft Servers List related kind of website because you have some knowledge of the game.
We got the idea, now what ?
Now you need to start planning your strategy for what type of servers you will put in your servers list, how will you get visitors and why the users should come back to you. Minecraft is the most popular game and a lot of people have Minecraft related servers list so it will be tough for you to start one without thinking how to do it and how to promote it.
Choosing a niche inside the Minecraft niche would be a good choice. Lets say you want your Servers List to host only a specific type of Servers, like Bukkit or something else.
Things that you will need
Lets talk about things that you will need in order to get your website up and running.
- A niche domain for your servers list ( You can get one from godaddy.com or wherever you want )
- A web hosting or VPS that will run the servers list good and without problems. ( To note that many of the shared webhostings that you find for cheap, don’t support querying game servers, so you won’t have the possibility to get live statistics from that server )
- The software or the platform that does this, the actual script, the heart of the Servers List. You can check out My portfolio and there you have plenty of options for different games and types of servers lists.
