    Default my dream to spread the gospel

    Hey everyone im in a pickle see i had this fantastic idea to build a web site called christian cross connections i called it that because its designed to connect Christians everywhere along with several Churches tha specialize in evangelism. it isnt a forum its more of a network It would have many features like being able to chat in chat rooms it would have forums but not a debate forum or at least not a main one it would be a side forum. we would be connected to many churches around the world and both the churches and the users could message each other and comment on the churches progress on evangelism the works within the church and spreading the gospel. i wanted to recreate the mission of the apostels how they were relentless in spreading and teaching the gospel and saving souls.

    also i iintended to have many articles on all sorts of subjects fron christian news to teachings for new believers and more. i was going to have a video section with searchable teachers and preachers to fit the users taste and needs. there is much more but i thought of this site becuse i suddenly felt a deep desire to spread the gospel world wide,unite christians and help them in their faith, give lots of useful info for Christians facts not rumors or simply anything from the web and to help and inspire others to have that burning desire for God and spreadin the gospel.

    However as it turns out in order to make it which my friend said he could it would cost about 10,000 dollars and I would have to have top of the line computer not just any computer i would need to have a great server as well. even if I could make this thing i dont know if that would get me banned from here because i would own it but i cant come up with ten grand i dont even have a computer and it would take eight months to make.

    So I am trying to think of other options i want to use all the internet has to offer to spread the gospel connect with churches and basically recreate the apostles mission. so anyone tech savy know what i can do? I know it wont be free but i am hoping to get a job soon
    My life's testimony seems to have helped many people so I am going to put it here http://christianchat.com/testimonies...-new-post.html

    When the hearts of God and a child of his make that special intimate connection a wondrous power is born and a flame ignites that can never be put out

    Let a company like GoDaddy.com provide web hosting that for a small monthly fee. I own some domains, use them, and they created and maintain the web pages I wanted. It costs about $10 a year just to "park" a domain name you are not ready to use yet, so right away you need to own that domain name if it's still available.

    I don't think it's right to use a site like this one to promote yours, such as drawing people from this one to yours. Any web hoster can publish you on all the major search engines, and you can always ask other web sites to allow you to make a signature for your posts to carry your domain name. Many sites do that for a small monthly contribution. If your link were to bring them a lot of browsing traffic, many will pay you a monthly fee.

    You might find someone locally that can create the web pages for a small fee, then you upload that to the web hosting site which will serve your pages pretty cheaply. If you don't want their advertising to offset costs, you pay a bit more. There might be other web sites wanting to help your project by carrying their domain ads, like the churches you want involved, able to help you financially if your idea is productive, adding to their own expectations.

    If that's the name you want, spend the $10 or whatever(on sale for a dollar) and buy that domain name, which can be served through what, hundreds of web hosting sites. That makes you owning it, as long as you pay that $10 a year. I made a goodly profit for years creating domain names that I never used. When someone tried to own it, they got a message about who to buy it from. If a ministry, I let them have it for whatever I had paid to hold it. If a business, I socked it to them according to their D&B rating. Nowadays it's a lot harder to come up with witty names, not worth the cost of speculating in them.

    Buy it while it's available. "Chirstiancrossconnections" is available for .com/.net/.org/.info for under $20 right now. Type it in at https://www.godaddy.com/deals2/defau...0119042511%3as

    At a dollar each for now you can make similar domain names to keep your site name protected.

    Next year you'll be billed for the $10 each domain name, plus hosting fees, whether you've begun using it or not. If you don't pay, you lose it unless nobody else picks it up. You can start using it with a one page site, using one of many free do it yourself site builders, then getting the most web hosting you can afford. As you can, add pages.

    if the Lord is in it he will provide the means, but you must ask and receive. Let friends critique it, polish it, then present to your network.

    Be sure to ALWAYS give credit to your sources if you use other peoples writings.
    You wouldn't want to take credit for someones work.

    This can turn out bad.
    Any kind of business is hard work, be ready to lose sleep.

    (I know you wouldn't intentionally do this, but make sure you give credit where credit is due.)
    Imagine.
