How to create A PTC website For Free with free domain and free Hosting!


Hello all, and welcome to the first part of my CREATE A PTC SITE guide. If I receive good feedback on this one, there is a likelihood that I will create a second part.

In this guide I will take you through 2 different scripts and make mention to 2 different advertisers you can use with your PTC site. Now, this won't be completely indepth, as I myself haven't yet attempted to use the advertisers with the scripts, however I'm sure you will be able to figure it out yourself.

1.YOU WILL NEED

1 - A domain - If you need a free domain visit this wbsite for a .co.cc domain name - www.co.cc

2 - A Host- If you need a free host i suggest - www.host1free.com or www.x10hosting.
 
3 - A PTC script - Feel free to use the ones below, or purchase one (search google to purchase one). I suggest downloading PTCscript2.rar and skipping right to the installation of that one.

2.A Host for your files


You can select from a range of hosts, but at the moment my best suggestion would be DreamHost, who are offering unlimited space and bandwidth. For free hosts read above.

A collection of promo codes for DreamHost (Enter them at the bottom of the signup page)
  • PTC8866 - $50 off registration
  • PTC142 - 2 Free domains
  • PTC5532 - 1 Free domain + $15 off


3.An FTP program to access your server


You can use the freeware program FileZilla effectively for this.


Only install ONE in a certain directory. If you only wish to install one, I suggest skipping right to the 2nd PTC script!


4.Installation

We will start with the installation of PTCscript1

Step 1 - Uploading the Files
Begin by opening FileZilla and connecting to your server. Upload all the files and folders except for 'installation'. This should be pretty straight forward.


Step 2 - Uploading sqldump.sql

Firstly create a mySql table. This can often be done from the 'mySql' page. It does not matter what name you enter, or are given.
Now, find phpMyAdmin in your hosting control panel. (Have to be vague, as it depends from host to host.)
Once logged in, select the database from the drop-down list from the left section of the page.
Now, click SQL from the top menu of the main section. Use the Location of the textfile select the file to upload (sqldump.sql). If asked to choose compression, choose None! Now, upload the file.

Step 3 - Editing dbconnect.php
In the folder in which you extracted the files on your local computer, open dbconnect.php in either Notepad or Dreamweaver.
You will be presented with something similar to

Code:  <?php mysql_connect('localhost','root','asdfgh'); mysql_select_db('ptcinv'); ?>

Update the 'root' to the username that you entered or were given when creating your database. Do the same for 'asdfgh' for the password and 'ptcinv' for the name of the database. eg

Code:  <?php mysql_connect('localhost','username','password'); mysql_select_db('database'); ?>

Once edited, reupload this file to your server through FileZilla, over righting the old one.

Step 4 - Editing vars.php
Now open vars.php in NotePad or Dreamweaver and edit it. This one is pretty straight forward. Once done editing, save and then reupload, over writing the old file.

Step 5 - Password protect the admin folder
Yes, I know, this script is a little lame. In your cpanel (or panel offered), go to either a password protect folder page, or to the file browser and password protect your 'admin' folder.

Step 6 - Login to admin and go
Now, navigate to www.yoursite.com/admin and enter the password you set for the admin folder. You can control the PTC site from this admin folder.


PTC script - 2


Step 1 - Uploading the Files
Begin by opening FileZilla and connecting to your server. Upload all the files in the 'script' folder. This should be pretty straight forward.


Step 2 - Uploading sqldump.sql

Firstly create a mySql table. This can often be done from the 'mySql' page. It does not matter what name you enter, or are given.
Now, find the file 'database.txt' in the place you extracted the files. Rename this to sqldump.sql
Now, find phpMyAdmin in your hosting control panel. (Have to be vague, as it depends from host to host.)
Once logged in, select the database from the drop-down list from the left section of the page.
Now, click SQL from the top menu of the main section. Use the Location of the textfile select the file to upload (sqldump.sql). If asked to choose compression, choose None! Now, upload the file.

Step 3 - Modifying the Config Files
Firstly open 'config.php' in the 'script' folder in Notepad or Dreamweaver.
You will be presented with a script which looks like

Code:
<?php

// Database configuration

$bd_host = "localhost";
$bd_usuario = "username";
$bd_password = "password";
$bd_base = "database";
$url = "http://www.yourdomain.com";
$con = mysql_connect($bd_host, $bd_usuario, $bd_password); mysql_select_db($bd_base, $con);

?>


Update the 'username' that you entered or were given when creating your database. Do the same for 'password' for the password and 'database' for the name of the database. Change the url to your site url, including the www.net.
Now, upload this using FileZilla and replace 'config.php' and then upload it again replacing '/admin/config.php', as they are the same files.

Step 4 - Access The Admin Panel
Navigate to www.yoursite.com/admin and login using admin as your username and 123456 as your password. Edit your settings as you like.


4.Advertisers

The true nature of PTC sites is the fact that you send users to advertisers in attempts to sign them up; then use some of the money which you get back to pay the user.
This is known as
CPA - Cost per Acquisition (A user signs up) and
CPL - Cost Per Lead (Leading a potential customer to a site)
I have not yet had any experience with advertisers, however there are many ways you can find them. You can either have them sign up directly on your site, paying a flat rate for clicks. You can also contact organisations asking if anything is available.

My preference is to use a marketing company. Two which may possibly work well with PTC are:

- Cactus Media - The Leader In Performance Based Marketing!
- Rupiz Ads

Sign up on both if you wish.

Please remember, I have not had any experience with either, and I am not sure how easily it would be to use their services with these PTC scripts.
