Owning your own website?? Anyone? I want to

So I got some ideas for my own website. Does/has anyone own their own site?
How much $$ does it take? How much $$ can I make?

Serious inquiries ONLY please.... i want to make some scratch!

depends on what you mean by owning a website. having a domain is pretty cheap, $10 a year or less. need a server? you can rent a shared server, virtual server or dedicated server and different tiers of service for a wide range in price per year.

how much money can you make? it depends on what the website is for. if your idea sucks, you'll make nothing. if you've got something good going on, then you can make tons. but don't be fooled, it's not instant cash. i know a bunch of people who are making money on the internet but still work a full time job.

and what do you mean by serious inquiries only? arent you the one with the inquiry?

I host mine through 1and1.com. Haven't had any problems, fairly cheap, good tools. My site isn't a moneymaker in and of itself - it's a marketing tool for a construction business.

Based on the seriousness of the inquires, i'd think jspeed29 is better of selling crack....i get the feeling that his idea sucks...

I've been having some dude in canada setting me up a site selling products through amazon. Pretty sweet, seems like it will work out with some good maintenance and some SEO.

my bad, poor choice of words. I meant serious responses only...none of this "porno xxx.com" or other stupid invaluable responses


I think I have a good idea that has not been done yet. Nothing groundbreaking, but I think it would provide value (regionally)
