How To Create A Poker Website
The key to any poker website is in getting players to use it. As we just covered, learning how to create a poker website itself is easy. It can be done with just a few steps and installing our software on your hosting.
Running a successful poker website, however, is another thing. You’ll need to start recruiting players or have agents who do this for you. Perhaps you will want to start simple tournaments where the winner takes it all.
Even if you want to offer Omaha, Pot Limit or Limit games, our poker clone software will allow you to accomplish this with ease. Just create the tables and go!
Where To Host Your Poker Site
Hosting is one of the most important things about your poker site, next to the poker clone script and your domain name of course.
Hosting is your spot on the internet where you can add anything you want – including your poker site – to show the world. What you add and store there, is what people see when they enter your domain name.
When you create a poker website you should be expecting a growing increase in traffic – visitors who will be playing on your site and thus your hosting. Make sure when choosing a hosting platform the CPU and RAM are sufficient so it will be able to process queries in time and to allow for smooth gameplay.
Although domain names are usually a one-time fee and non-refundable, hosting however can usually be tried out for 14/30 days. If you find a hosting provider you like, give them a try, and see how it goes. Once you see a stable trend of your poker site and games running smoothly, you can assume its safe to stay with them.
Keep in mind, however, the more players that are actively playing on your site, the more server resources will be required. It is possible that once your poker website starts growing the game might slow down. That is the queue for you to start looking into upgrading your hosting and server capacity. Usually, your current hosting provider can help with this.
