What you need to create your own Crypto Faucet
This is the list of requirements to create a faucet site
- you will have your own domain in order to create your own faucet. A domain is the name, brand, or URL of your faucet site it will need to be unique and appealing at the same time it has the word of what your website is all about example if you are planning to create a bitcoin faucet you can use the word like BTC faucet, claim BTC, claim satoshi, earn satoshi and many more. there is many sites where you can buy a domain name but I will only put site where I usually get my own domain.
- Paid Domain – i always buy my domain at Namecheap i just use their website because i can pay using Bitcoin
- Free Domain – if you just want to test it first or you want to lessen you expenses you can get free domain in Freenom its been a long time since the last time i use it but if I’m right you can get free domain in their website of .tk .ml .ga .cf .gq the downside of free domain is you cant post the link of free domain in some forum or social media ( use .ml its better than .tk)
- You will need a hosting to host your domain in order to create your own faucet. Hosting is needed in order for your domain to be online you will need hosting for your domain to become searchable and start to accept visitors. usually, there is a much-hosting company where you can get your hosting but I’m not familiar with them so I will only advise what I always use.
- Shared Hosting – Namecheap Shared Hosting might not be the best to host your website but it acceptable especially when you plan to create faucet site its a little bit cheaper compared in other hosting or dedicated server but the good thing is you can use it in trial and error phase because when you start your faucet it will not become popular overnight. I use the Popular shared Hosting plan in Namecheap it can host unlimited domains but the traffic is limited that is why when your website becomes popular you can just transfer it to the better hosting plan.
- WordPress Hosting – Because the faucet script that we will use in this tutorial is a WordPress plugin you can also use the Namecheap EasyWP hosting this is where i transfer my WordPress site when my shared hosting always reaching it traffic limit and cant accommodate more visitor. It’s a little bit faster compared to shared hosting but it’s more expensive and you can only host a solo WordPress site in one EasyWP hosting.
- Free Hosting – there are many hosting providers that provide free hosting but I don’t plan to share their website with you because it’s not really advisable for crypto faucet site it has a limited traffic capacity in just a few hours your website can reach it limit so I advice not to use it but if you only plan to try to make your own bitcoin faucet for free to check it out and see how it works its not bad idea to try it out using free hosting and free domain its possible to create your own faucet but its better to not share it in public and only use it for test.
- You will need to install WordPress, i tried using the lastest wordpress but its not compatible in the faucet script so you need to downgrade your wordpress to 5.3 in order to create your own faucet there are 2 ways to install WordPress for your website you can install it manually or using a Cpanel of your hosting you can check the guide here of how to install wordpress
