List of things you need for making a Bitcoin Faucet on 2017
Domain and Hosting
You will need somewhere to host your Bitcoin Faucet and a domain name.
For Hosting i really recommend HostGator because its very easy to setup everything and if you get stuck on something they have a really good support team that are always online trough a live chat. For the domain name i recommend Namecheap because they have better prices than a large amount of the market, and a nice selection of TLDs it is arguably the best place to go. They dont change the renew price like others company’s do.

Anonymous Ads http://www.a-ads.com
Probably the oldest bitcoin ad network still running. Pays based on the amount of views, but is depends on which advertisers are advertising and their daily budget. I have used this network on all of my bitcoin projects and have been paid by it every time without fail. This ad network is for banner and text ads.
Minimum withdrawal – 0.0001BTC (No fee)
This network displays both text and banner ads, and also boasts similar rates to Google Adsense. It also runs on a pay per click system.
Minimum withdrawal – 0.01BTC (No fee)
In order for this to work we need some traffic. The good thing about a Bitcoin Faucet its that you dont need to invest on traffic you can just post your new faucet on some forums and rotators.
