Google AdSense is arguably one of the most popular ways to monetize a website. Google AdSense on your WordPress website allows you to display video, image or text advertisements on your website. Whenever a visitor views or clicks on these ads on your website, you will be paid.
While there are a number of such ad networks available today, it doesn’t make sense signing up for multiple networks. If you sign up for many networks, you’ll bombard your site with advertisements and make it unnecessarily cluttered and messy. Rather, it makes much more sense to stick with the best ad network, which is Google AdSense.
If you already have a WordPress website up and running, you should set up Google AdSense on your site immediately. Thankfully, setting up Google AdSense on WordPress websites is extremely simple and straightforward.
Today, I will offer you a step by step guide to setting up Google AdSense on your WordPress website. I’ll show you everything you need to start earning passive income, so make sure to read through until the end!

Sign-up for Google AdSense
Before you can setup AdSense on your website, you’ll need to sign-up for a free account with Google AdSense. This is a simple process, where you can sign-up with any email id. While Google allowed creating multiple AdSense accounts in the past, now it is limited to just one.
Image: Google AdSense Sign-Up
The process of signing up for AdSense includes email verification. You will also be asked to answer a few questions about your website during the process. When you’re done, you will be redirected to your AdSense dashboard.
Understand the AdSense Dashboard
Once you’ve signed up and created your AdSense account, you can access your AdSense dashboard. Your dashboard includes everything that you need to create and manage advertisements on your website. I recommend you to take a look at all the tabs under the dashboard to get a better understanding of AdSense. Thankfully, Google has greatly improved the interface of the AdSense dashboard, so everything is intuitive and easy to understand.
Image: AdSense Dashboard
Within the AdSense dashboard, you’ll see tabs for creating and managing ads, performance reports, optimization settings, general settings and help and support. I recommend you to explore each tab to understand what you can do with AdSense. When you click on a tab, a new page will open up where everything is laid out in easy to understand terms.
Google also offers help and support options within each tab, as it does in the main dashboard section. You can always lookup help and support in case you need to find out anything more about AdSense. I won’t go into much detail here as Google has done a pretty good job in laying out the AdSense dashboard.
Verify your AdSense Account
After signing up for an AdSense account, the very first thing you should do is to verify your AdSense account settings. You can do this from within your AdSense dashboard itself.
Head over to the Settings tab in your dashboard and click on Personal Settings, where you will be asked to verify your details and your mailing address. Google will send a PIN to your mailing address within two weeks after you verify your details. By using this PIN, you can verify and activate your AdSense account to start receiving money. Don’t worry if you think that waiting for verification will mean a loss of income. Google will automatically hold your AdSense revenue and release it once your PIN is verified.
Image: AdSense Verification
Other account settings should also be verified including your account information and payments. You can find these tabs under the main Settings tab in your AdSense dashboard.
Once you have verified all settings, you can go ahead and create advertisements for your website using AdSense.
Once you’ve created and verified your AdSense account, you can create and manage advertisements from your AdSense dashboard. To do this, head to the My Ads tab where you can create a new ad unit.
While AdSense would earlier allow you to create only one type of advertisement, now you can create three types. These include:
Text and display ads: Allows you to display advertisements anywhere on a webpage. You can choose the style, the placement and the size of the advertisement.
In-feed ads Allow you to display advertisements that flow naturally within a list of products or articles on a webpage. Such ads are normally displayed in lists which you may create on your website.
In-article ads Allow you to display advertisements that seamlessly fit in between paragraphs on a webpage. This creates an enhanced reading experience for users, while you also get to display relevant ads.
Image: AdSense Ad Units
While you can create any of these three types of advertisements, you cannot control what ads will be displayed. This is completely determined by Google, based on the browsing habits of your visitors.
Also, I recommend you to stick with Text and Display ads and In-article ads and avoid In-feed ads as far as possible. I’ll go into this in a little more detail later on.
Creating Text and Display Ads
Text and display ads are by far the most popular type of AdSense advertisements. These ads can easily be inserted as a widget on a webpage. To create such ads, simply click on the Text and Display ads in your dashboard under Ad Units. This will open up a page where you can name the ad and select the size, type and style of the ad.
Image: Text and Display Ads
While there are some different ad size configurations, I recommend you to stick with the responsive layout. Responsive ads will automatically adjust themselves to offer an optimal viewing experience, regardless of whether your website is being viewed on mobile or desktops.
You can also customize the style of the text and display ads as well as group custom ad channels together. However, these are fairly advanced settings, and you’ll do just fine without diving too deep into them.
When you have completed selecting the settings for your text and display ad, click on Save and Get Code. Copy the code that AdSense creates for you and insert it into a text widget of WordPress dashboard. Remember to paste the code in the Text tab under WordPress widgets and not the Visual tab which opens right next to it. This will create and display the ad on your website. Don’t worry if your ad doesn’t show up immediately; it will do so soon.
Creating In-Feed ads
Personally, I don’t recommend creating In-Feed ads for your website, especially if you’re new to AdSense. This is because In-feed ads can create some confusion and trick people on your website into clicking on an ad. In-feed ads will be displayed on your list of blog posts or products. People may mistakenly click on the ad, thinking it to be another blog post or product. There’s a good chance that such people won’t return to your website, so it’s best to avoid In-feed ads altogether.
Image: In-Feed Ads
There is a certain learning curve associated with using In-Feed ads effectively. While I don’t make much use of these ads, you can certainly go ahead and try them out if you want to. To create these ads, simply click on In-Feed ads in your dashboard under Ad Units. This will open up a page where you can customize your ad.
I won’t go into much detail about creating In-Feed ads as I don’t use them myself. However, Google provides a support forum on how to create customized In-Feed ads where you can learn how to use these ads. Do note that In-Feed ads make use of certain plugins and they may not work with all WordPress themes. It is best to check the Google support forum before you try and create such an ad.
Creating In-Article Ads
Several websites make use of In-Article ads, and I also make use of them myself. Google has made the process of creating In-Article Ads very simple and easy. Just head over to In-Article ads in your AdSense dashboard under Ad Units. This will open up a new page where you can customize the ad style, title, description and background.
Image: In-Article Ads
Once you have customized your In-Article ad, click on Save and Get Code. Copy the code that AdSense creates and head over to your WordPress dashboard. Open up the blog post or webpage where you want to insert the ad into the dashboard under the Text Tab. Wherever you want to insert your ad, paste the code into the text. Make sure to add line spaces to separate your text from AdSense code. This will make things easier if you need to edit your webpage or blog post in the future.
Additional Tips for Creating Effective Ads
Google AdSense certainly makes it very easy for you to create ads on your WordPress website. However, I recommend you to be a little careful when you’re creating ads. By inserting too many ads into your website, you’ll make it look like a scam to your visitors. Also, with too many ads, there’s always a chance that a visitor mistakenly clicks on one of your ads. While you’ll still earn money this way, your visitors will not return to your website. In the long term, you will be the one to suffer.
This is something you should avoid at all costs. Posting one or two ads here and there on a website is what I recommend you do. And, of course – make sure to customize your ads so that they don’t look like a scam. Remember – by keeping things simple, you will offer a better experience to your visitors, and you’ll give your website a chance to grow.
And, for more tips on support on how to use AdSense effectively, feel free to visit Google’s support forums. The AdSense community is incredibly active, and you’ll get most of your questions answered by the forum.

There you have it! These are the exact steps you need to follow to setup Google AdSense on your WordPress website. Even if you’ve never used AdSense or any other ad network, it is fairly simple to setup AdSense on a website. If you’re a developer or you have good experience with WordPress, setting up AdSense will be a breeze. Even if you’re not, you can create an ad using AdSense in a matter of minutes – it’s that simple!
Do you already make use of an ad network to monetize your WordPress website? Or do you use methods other than advertisements to earn passive income from your website? Or maybe you’re already using AdSense, but you’re not sure if you’re using it effectively? Whatever doubts, queries or thoughts you have, do let me know in the comments section below. I’ll be more than happy to help you out with setting up Google AdSense effectively on your website!

All of us know that WordPress can be used to create some really amazing websites. But have you ever thought of creating a web hosting business using the most popular CMS available today? Learn more about WordPress and WHMCS.
Many people have jumped into creating web hosting businesses recently. It is a lucrative business opportunity which can enable you to increase your earnings, earn recurring revenue and work from anywhere you want. You can even integrate a new web hosting business with your current internet marketing or web design business to earn more revenue.
If you have a basic understanding of WordPress, then you can actually get a web hosting business up and running in a matter of hours! All you’ll need for this is WordPress and the WHMCS billing software. While WordPress allows you to create the front-end of a professional looking website, WHMCS allows you to manage billing and accounts from the back-end. WHMCS is one of the world’s most popular web hosting automation platforms which allows you to handle sign-ups, billing, provisioning and support.
Today, I will compile a step by step guide to help you create a web hosting business easily and efficiently using WordPress and WHMCS. I’ll show you everything that you need to do to get your new business up and running as quickly and smoothly as possible, so make sure to read right through to the end!
You can also watch the video oh our WHMCS tutorial on youtube. Darrel Wilson and Ryan Grey of namehero go in detail on what you need to do to setup your hosting company step by step
Get a basic idea of WordPress
In order to create a new web hosting business, you will need to have a basic understanding of WordPress. If you have used WordPress before, then you can skip to the next step. If not, then you should get yourself acquainted with WordPress before you build your new web hosting business.
While you can use other CMS platforms like Joomla and Drupal to create your web hosting business, I prefer WordPress. This is because WordPress is completely free, it is very friendly to beginners, it is mobile and tablet friendly and it is backed by a massive support community.
Image: WordPress Dashboard
Don’t worry if you have never used WordPress before to create a website, it is actually quite easy and straightforward. There are plenty of WordPress tutorials available on the Internet, so I won’t go into the details here. You don’t need to go into too much detail with WordPress to build a web hosting business. Just get yourself acquainted with the dashboard, the themes and the settings. If you’re an absolute beginner, I also recommend that you try creating a free blog for a better understanding of WordPress.
Purchase a domain name and reseller hosting
Once you have acquainted yourself with WordPress, you’ll need to purchase a domain name and reseller hosting for your new business. While the WordPress platform is completely free, you will have to purchase reseller hosting and a domain name. Don’t worry, it won’t break the bank. You can purchase a domain name plus domain-hosting for as little as $3-5 per month, which is less than a cup of coffee.
You will need a hosting package, of course you may chose any hosting company you want, but i recommend Namehero because of their reliability and knowledge with reseller hosting. I have teamed up with Ryan Grey and can provide you a special discount for reseller hosting
When signing up to namehero for your resller hosting package, i highly recommend getting the corporate package because you already get the WHMCS license included. If you use another package, you will have to purchase the WHMCS license alone and it will drive your cost up! So I would use the resources available and select the corporate hosting package.
First, think of what you want your new web hosting business to be called. After you’ve come up with a few names, look to see if the .com domain name of your choice is available for purchase. You can go with other domain extensions, but I’ll recommend you to try and find a .com domain unless other extensions describe you better. When you find an available domain name of your choice, you can purchase it from your hosting provider.
After you’ve finalized a domain name, you’ll need to purchase reseller hosting for your new website. There are several reseller hosting providers out there, but I recommend you to consider NameHero. NameHero is one of the best and their plans are quite affordable as compared to some others. Also, when you purchase NameHero reseller hosting, you will also receive a free license for WHMCS and you can even purchase your domain name of choice for free within NameHero.
Next up, you’ll need to install WordPress to create your website. Thankfully, NameHero makes this process very simple, even for beginners. First, log in to the client area on your NameHero cPanel. Once you’ve logged in, scroll down the cPanel page under scripts until you see the WordPress icon.
Click on the WordPress icon to open the dashboard within the cPanel and click on the install button. NameHero offers one-click installation of WordPress, so you should have absolutely no problems with installation. Upon installation, you’ll also need to fill out the fields for your website in the cPanel. If you’re unsure of anything, just leave the fields at the default option. As an option, you can also browse through the preloaded free themes in WordPress and use one if you desire. You can always change the theme later if you need to.
Image: WordPress Install
Do note that you can create a web hosting website without using WordPress – simply by using WHMCS. However, this is not a path that I recommend. Without the power of WordPress, you’ll only be able to create a bland and boring website. And, in today’s fast and competitive world, you want your website to be anything but bland and boring.
WordPress and WHMCS – Installation
After installing WordPress, you’ll need to install WHMCS as well. NameHero integrates with WHMCS and you can install it in a matter of minutes. To install WHMCS, login to the client area on your NameHero cPanel. After logging in, scroll down the page under softaculous until you see the WHMCS icon.
Click on the WHMCS icon to open the dashboard and then click on the install button. As with WordPress, NameHero offers one-click installation of WHMCS as well, so you’ll find the installation to be super simple. You’ll also need to fill out few text fields based on your requirements for your web hosting business. One thing to keep in mind is that WHMCS recommends the latest version of PHP, so make sure that you update your PHP version in the cPanel.
Image: WHMCS Install
Once you’ve installed WHMCS, you can login to your WHMCS Admin dashboard from where you can change settings.
Setup nameservers using WHMCS
The first thing you need to do after you’ve installed WHMCS and WordPress on your website is to setup nameservers. You can do this from your WHMCS Admin dashboard itself. First, login to your WHMCS Admin dashboard and find the Setup button. Hover over the button to reveal a drop-down list and choose General Settings from the list. Next, head over to the domain tab where you’ll need to fill in a few settings.
Image: WHMCS Nameservers
The settings you’ll need to enter are very important to providing web hosting services, so make sure to fill them in properly. These settings include:
Domain registration options
Enable renew options
Auto-renew on payment
Auto-renew requires product
Default auto-renew settings
Create to-do list entries
Domain sync enabled
Sync next due date
Domain sync notify only
Allow IDN domains
Bulk domain search
Default nameservers 1-5
Use client details
First name, last name, company name, email address, postal address and phone number
Once you’ve filled these settings according to your requirements, save the changes.
If you have any problems in setting up nameservers, you can also make use of the helpful WHMCS setup wizard. This wizard will guide you through all the necessary settings required for you to begin selling web hosting services.
Before you can start selling web hosting services, you’ll also need to setup Enom on your website. Enom allows you to offer SSL certificates, website building software and email services which are closely related to web hosting. In order to setup Enom on your website, you’ll need to register an account with Enom first. Another important point is that you need to fund your Enom account before you can start selling your services. I recommend making a deposit of a minimum of $25.
Image: Enom Setup
Once you’ve registered, head over to your WHMCS Admin dashboard and hover over the Setup button. From the drop-down list, head over to Products/Services and then to Domain Registrars. Under the list of Domain Registrars, locate Enom and click on the Activate button next to it. When you do this, you’ll see the Enom configuration screen where you’ll have to enter your Enom username as well as your API token. Click on Save to complete the setup process. You’ll also need to register your IP address with Enom because their API offers restricted access through IP addresses.
Configure general WHMCS settings
Next, you’ll need to configure the general WHMCS settings in order to start selling web hosting. During this process, you’ll also familiarize yourself with the various configurations and settings available in WHMCS.
Image: WHMCS General Settings
To configure the general settings, login to your WHMCS Admin dashboard and hover over the Setup tab to reveal a drop-down list. From the list, click on General Settings. Once you do so, you’ll find several tabs through which you can configure the general settings as per your needs. These tabs include:
I won’t go into the details of these settings as they will depend on your requirements. You should face too many problems in configuring these settings. But, if you do, there are plenty of lengthy tutorials online to help you out.
Configure email piping
As a seller of web hosting services, inevitably you will need to provide support to your clients. For this, you’ll need to configure email piping within WHMCS. Thankfully, this is a simple process which you can do from within the WHMCS Admin dashboard.
Image: Email Piping in WHMCS
To configure email piping, access your WHMCS Admin dashboard and hover over the Setup button. Select Support and then click on Support Departments to open the support ticket departments page. On this page, locate Ticket Importing using Email Forwarders and copy the portion in the field after ‘home/username/’ in the path. Next, login to your dashboard, locate the Emails tab and click on Forwarders and then Add Forwarder. On this page, enter the email address of your support department. After this, head over to Advanced Options and click on Pipe to a Program, where you can paste the command you had copied earlier. Finalize your email piping settings by saving the changes to the Add Forwarder button.
Configure domain pricing
Since you will be selling services related to domain registration and any associated add-ons, you’ll need to configure domain pricing within WHMCS. To do this, login to your WHMCS Admin dashboard and head over to Support, then Products/Services and then Domain Pricing.
Image: WHMCS Domains Pricing
Under the Domain Pricing tab, you can configure various settings including:
Modifying existing TLDs
Adding new TLDs
Premium domain names
Add-ons such as email forwarding, ID protection and DNS management
WHMCS offers detailed instructions to help you configure domain pricing. If you are in doubt, simply go through their instructions and tutorials.
Customize customer dashboard
To make a killer web hosting business, you have to provide an exceptional customer experience. Thankfully, you can easily customize the customer dashboard in WHMCS using the Admin dashboard.
Image: WHMCS Customer Dashboard
The WHMCS Admin dashboard includes widget controls on the top right of every widget. Using these controls, you can minimize, refresh or close widgets in order to change the dashboard appearance. You can even create your own widgets and feature them on the customer dashboard.
Stripe is a popular payment gateway which is compatible with WHMCS. However, you’ll need to configure and integrate Stripe before you can start selling web hosting. To do so, login to your WHMCS Admin dashboard and head over to Setup, then Payments and then Payment Gateways.
Image: WHMCS Stripe Integration
On the Payment Gateways page, you’ll need to enter your Stripe API keys. You can find your secret API key inside the Stripe portal. Once you’ve done so, you can customize the display name and statement descriptor. Complete the process by saving the changes.
Add hosting packages and services
As part of your web hosting services, you’ll need to provide cPanel hosting accounts to your customers. And, to do so, you’ll need to connect your cPanel server to WHMCS. Fortunately, this process is also relatively simple.
Image: Adding Hosting Packages and Services in WHMCS
First, login to your WHMCS Admin dashboard, head over to Setup, then Products/Services and then Servers. On this page, choose the option to Add New Server and fill in all information from your cPanel. Save the changes
To add hosting packages and servers, go to your WHMCS Admin dashboard, then to Setup and then to Products/Services. Click on Create a New Product and give it the same name as the hosting package you have created.
Create WHMCS add-ons
WHMCS offers a number of add-on modules that allow you to extend the capability of the billing software. Some of these add-on modules include Registrar Modules, Payment Gateways and Provisioning Modules. All add-ons can be managed within the WHMCS Admin dashboard under Setup and then Addon Modules.
Image: WHMCS Add-Ons
When offering add-ons, it really depends on what you want to offer with your web hosting services. With the help of add-ons, you can upsell WordPress configurations, SEO, social media management and other related products/services. By doing so, you can increase your revenue per customer.
Customize your website and add a logo
If you’ve followed all the steps I have mentioned above, you will have a fully functioning website by now. However, your website is still not presentable to customers, so you should customize your website and include a logo.
Adding a logo and making website customizations can easily be done within the WordPress cPanel. I won’t go into the details here as this is fairly straightforward. In case you run into any problems, you can easily find a solution online.
Transfer domains and support tickets
An integral part of offering web hosting services is to allow customers to transfer their existing domains and support tickets to your service. Again, WHMCS makes this process super simple.
Under the WHMCS customer dashboard, your customers can see an option to register or transfer a domain. And, under the cPanel, customers can submit support tickets for transferring their domains to your service.
Image: Domain Transfer in WHMCS
That’s it! These are the exact step by step instructions you need to follow in order to create a new web hosting business. While there are certainly many steps involved in this process, most of these steps are fairly straightforward. If you have any experience with WordPress or you’re a developer, you should face no problems in configuring and using WHMCS. And, in case you do, you can always refer to the official WHMCS documentation where you’ll find detailed instructions.
