Before we start our tutorial regarding on how to create FREE faucet, I just want you to keep on mind that this faucet are made using FREE domain name + FREE hosting service + FREE faucet script
Lets I give short introduction of myself before we got any further. My name is Amhar and come from Malaysia. I got degree in Nautical Science and Maritime Transportation. I really do have no basic knowledge on coding stuff.
Even though I study on maritime field, but I had an interest on learning this kind of coding stuff. Before I created this faucet, Im just 1 of the user that using mexicantarget faucet game.
Than mexicantarget said he gonna made a microwallet to replace FaucetBox that been planning to be closed on end of 2016. After he launch FaucetHub, there are not many faucet that using FaucetHub service because its new.
Suddenly I had an idea, why not I make a faucet? So, the journey of learning on how to make a FREE faucet had began since I dont want to put any penny on something that Im not expert or atleast got some knowledge on it.
I did search on the internet from 1 website to another until I got the BEST way to made a FREE faucet.
On this tutorial, I already divide it into 6 sub topic to made it easy for understanding. If you look at the top of this text, you gonna see the tab "Introduction", "Requirement", "Create", "Monetiza", "Upgrade"
and "Maintain". Here is some summary what Im going to write on those sub topic:
Introduction: You can ignore this tab seems its just more to trash talk rather than tutorial.
Requirement: What do you need to have before we create faucet.
Create: How to create a FREE faucet.
Monetize: How to monetize your faucet.
Upgrade: How to made your faucet look more stylish.
Maintain: How to sustained your faucet.
Here some simple glossary word that gonna used a lot here
Domain Name - the part of a network address that identifies it as belonging to a particular domain. (example: google.com, faucethub.io, jompi.tk)
Web Hosting - the activity or business of providing storage space and access for websites.
Script - program or sequence of instructions that is interpreted or carried out by another program rather than by the computer processor (as a compiled program is).
When you have a site visitor, they use your domain name to view your website. As simple as it seems, there is a process that occurs from the time that the site visitor types in your domain and presses enter.
When a site visitor enters your domain name into a browser, the domain is then translated into your server IP address, then the server sends that user your site files, which their browser represents to them as a typical web-page.You can see that, without each of these 3 elements, you won't really have a web-site.
The three basic parts that make up any current day website are:
1. Domain Name
2. Web Hosting Server
3. Site Files (Script)
Lets cut the trash talk here and wish this tutorial atleast give you some kick start before you learn some advance stuff

Enter your domain name and click "Park domain" button.
If your domain nameserver are pointed correctly to 000webhost nameservers, domain will show status "Ready" which means that is ready to link Website.

Some of the ads network are only accept faucet with high alexa rank. But need no worry about it, you still can earn from some of the ads network with low requirement.
Just becareful when selecting ads network because some of them are just scam ads network. Here Im not going to write on how to register with ads network,
Since you already on this step, for sure you can manage some ways to make it happen. But I will listed the legit ads network and how to put the ads code.
Legit Adsvertising Network.
This is the ads network that been suggested by some of the Faucet Owner that I know.
AdsOptimal (need to park domain before you can apply)
Not much that I able to write here, but what I can suggest is just go to your admin panel at your faucet site, try to explore what they can give you,
editing this template wont need any basic of coding stuff.
Edit faucet file script.
If you dont have any basic in coding stuff, maybe its time for you to learn something. Here is the link where I learn some basic things to create this faucet:
Dammit! Before this you ask for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin on FaucetHub account, now you ask for brain. Are you trying to scam my idea?
My Answer: Your idea is for your own faucet. Not for mine and you need no worry because im not planning to steal your idea or your brain.
Reasonable reward and timer.
Try to estimate on how much you efford to give to your visitor daily. You can put limit to your faucet so that you dont overlimit in giving satoshi and end up drain just in few days after you open faucet.
Faucet visit / Play faucet games / Offerwall.
Since its legal, why not keep on visiting our friend faucet. Atleast you can help our friend and at the same time earn some satoshi.
Not all faucet are listing on premium list at FaucetHub, so why not you made a faucet list that include faucet on regular and inactive list, You still can earn some satoshi from refferal
