My brother and his GF are semi porn stars and have about 20k followers on twitter and facebook combined.
They have no idea how to set up their own website where you have to pay for 1 show or a week or a month or whatever. They've just been accepting payment through paypal for a show on skype since they don't wanna do shows with other people because they're in love n junk.
The problem is, I only have experience building websites on webs.com and extremely little html knowledge... like... myspace html experience.

How would I set this website up for them? Money is really tight atm because they're not making a whole lot obviously with the paypal for a skype show kinda thing.

Another thing... I only have about $100 I can put into making this website for them.

Someone please help! Much appreciated, if it works and everything goes great, they can even pay you for the help.
Thank you!

A 'decent' commercial website is going to cost five grand. Anyone that claims they can do it for a few hundred dollars either A> Has no job and can afford the time to build out a fully operational website with content management, membership capabilities, shopping cart, and database; B> Has no idea what it takes to build out a website; or C> does not understand that a poorly designed website will hurt business.

For $100 you can probably buy a good book, and if you apply yourself, you may be able to put together a minimally functional website in a year or so. If you have specific questions, we can help with those. Telling you how to build out an entire website is not something that can be done in just a few minutes. Or days for that matter.

I'm with groovicus on this one, as soon as you mention ecommerce prices skyrocket! You could look at using Wordpress with the eShop plugin, but you will still need a half decent theme. I personally haven't run an ecommerce website this way, but have known people that have.

Same as above. eCommerce is a huge commitment of time and resources to getting the site up and running. You need to provide the interface, SSL and encryptions, link it financially, obtain business licenses, etc.

Being an adult-oriented website, you also need to be familiar and in compliance with USC 2257, COPPA, and other regulatory standards.

On a $100 budget, you are indeed pushing it. The SSL certificate and domain registration by themselves will run you a minimum of $60.
If I am helping you and I haven't replied to your thread in 3 days, please PM me or bump it

I would agree with this, but, with little to no working HTML knowledge and probably no idea what PHP, MySQL, AJAX, Javascript, etc. do, I doubt that someone could buy a $100 book and have a working production site up in as little as a year to two years. Even if they did, I would have sincere concerns about the security of credit card information. On top of that, I doubt the stars of this site are going to be willing to learn about these things -- as well as Apache -- along with the webmaster which means that someone will have to maintain it or a very easy, simple administration interface would have to be created. Huge teams of programmers fail at this miserably all the time.

On top of that, you'll be pretty hard pressed to find basic hosting that will allow you to host an adult website on their servers for a a variety of reasons, including bandwidth usage, security concerns, and legal issues.

I hate to discourage you, but starting an online eCommerce site is extremely difficult, even with all the tools that are available to you. It requires a huge amount of time and money. It's like opening a real business: any profit they plan to make will be eaten up by their costs, and they will have to fail to take a paycheck for themselves for a while.

Because of all of this, I would look into different solutions... While I won't Google it for you, I am sure there are certain sites that will put all of this together in a cookie cutter fashion.

Best of luck.
