Many investors are interested in detail and for analysis how much a modern and rather solid HYIP project costs, that is, with all details, a good DDoS protection, SSL encoding, beautiful design, unique or too modified script, etc. We undertook boldness and tried to question the administrators of HYIP funds about the amount of money they spend on creation of their HYIP funds and even about the preparation of project to the launch. Communication with two of them turned out well. They quickly and unlike some other administrators, to our mind, honestly answered our questions in letters. Unfortunately, I can’t name the projects the administrators of which they were, as their projects are SCAM already and there is no point in doing it (it won’t cause anything else except for possible irritation of the investors who lost money). And even if they launch new HYIP funds, they will as usual change the names, E-mail addresses, etc. Maybe, we won’t recognize them as well. In the article I have chosen the following way of supplying information. I will give all numbers, as the very letter had nothing interesting, and further I will describe my thoughts concerning the chosen scheme of working with their HYIP projects by the administrators. I think it will be interesting to you.
So, let’s get back to the theme. The first administrator informed that he spends decent money on creating of his HYIP fund. The domain costs from $10 a year, but for giving more reliability to his HYIP fund the administrator writes that it’s not difficult to buy a domain for about five years. Of course, as the investors subconsciously or, maybe, just because of their own naivety, think that the bigger term the domain is purchased for, the longer the project will work. Don’t be naive and don’t trust it.
Further, the administrator writes that he usually uses a rather cheap and popular hosting ddoswiz. It costs $250 a month. They also make a dedicated IP address, because of which it seems that HYIP is located on a dedicated server. It should be separately mentioned. I don’t know whether you’ve known about this fact before that all HYIP funds which are located on quasi dedicated servers, in reality are located on common servers in neighborhood with other HYIP funds. They just have this service included.
In our letter we asked about script and design. It was interesting to us how much it all costs for a HYIP fund. The administrator answered rather stiffly. Design is $400-$800. Script cost him $800. But he additionally pays $300 for the makeup of design and for additional functions as well as $200-400 for the alteration of script for each new fund. Design, let’s say directly, is not cheap. We know that a good design for a site can cost $200. The funds have probably their own billing rates. A unique script can cost much more, it depends on its coolness. Makeup is also expensive. The price of script alteration is unknown, it can be adequate. By the way, it turns out that we’re being deceived here as well, the script is just being altered in order to always resemble a unique one. Nobody does anything from nothing. In fact, we have always known it. At times, different funds with quasi unique scripts they were too much alike.
The administrator writes that he spends up to $3500-$4500 on monitors, blogs, forums and other means of promotion. But here it’s necessary to take into account the fact that expenses are gradual, and when the project is already launched the administrator pays for the bigger part of advertising from the received deposits of investors. There are cases when the administrators drive their project into great losses on the start buying too much advertising in addition to the budget spent on creation of the fund. On the one hand, it’s very good: the administrator will try to return his money with deposits of investors and will securely work during a definite period of time, but it may happen so that because of advertising on the start they invest too much money into the project, and it will close. We’ll give you a piece of advice which we’ve learnt while monitoring the behavior of numerous HYIP funds. As a rule, only the administrators of cheaply made projects and those who have bought too much advertising close in the first days as they compensate only advertising budget. But expensive funds are long created and we think that their administrators are at least morally ready for a long work, so, having bought a great amount of advertising on the start they will scarcely close their project during the first days.
The second scenario of the project’s promotion is gradual. Taking into account circumstances, the administrator watches the money coming to him, and concludes if his HYIP is worth further developing. Watch how the administrator promotes his fund and make a decision whether it’s worth investing.
Another administrator informed the following data (I will write in brief as I see that the article has grown too big already): Hosting is $1500 from antiddos.biz , licensed script is from Gold Coders $145, design is $400 and promotion is up to $5000. To my mind, he has lied about the hosting: it’s too expensive for projects with a common Gold Coders. The market offers many cheap variants, for instance, like in the first case. I think those administrators are not very interested in a very long work and active development of the project. As it’s very easy: to buy Gold Coders, to hang design on it and to launch the project. I recommend to pay attention to all the perspectives before investing and to deposit only into the most worthy projects.
I hope, the article was useful to you and you’ve learnt something new. I sincerely wish you success in investments. Stay with us!
