Anyone Know How To Get Affiliate Payments Out Of Hostnine

Apr 25, 2008

I have $100 in affiliate payments showing in my affilate panel with but they wont pay me. I logged tickets which they ignore, I posted on their forum and they told me to email an address that doesnt exist then locked the thread. I posted another thread which they deleted. I PM'd a guy called Ben there as one of the agents told me that only he can deal with it, he never replied.

I chatted online and as soon as I tell them what I want they dont reply to me.

They owe me money from August 2007 and wont pay me.

What do I do? How do I get them to pay.

They provide a great service in ALL other areas but how do you get money from them?

Driver License And Credit Card With PayPal Payments?

May 30, 2008

When paying for my server, I prefer to pay with PayPal. Is it normal when I want to pay with PayPal (if they except this), the hosting company also wants my CC number and CVV2 code. What's the use then of paying with PayPal.

I don't mind to identify myself with copies of driver licences, but CC is different story.

Not a question exactly related to HostNines hosting ability (have read a bunch of reviews, most seem good - and we all know that the pleased people rarely speak compared to the not so pleased), but how is their affiliate program? I've seen a few worried reviews on here concerning getting paid, but seems like they were updating their system and the people did infact get paid.

They seem to be one of the only hosts (if not only?) that offer such a nice payout on referrals that may only pay $4/month. I've sent in a few tickets about the program (and received fast responses) so I'm inclined to think they're a good host as well. Every other affiliate I've looked at will pay nice comissions but only after the referral pays large upfront fees (usually yearly accounts). So, hows HostNine guys?

I know the title of this thread seems a little hokey, but it's true and this is why:
Ben (operations manager) basically dropped everything to help me downgrade my account.

Here's the long story:

I have been with HostNine (h9) for about 18 months. I have hosted everything from ecommerce sites to forums and static sites. Recently, I needed to make a change to my account and downgrade from reseller account to a 'regular' account. Anytime I need to upgrade/downgrade my account I always do a little host shopping.

Sometimes I even just 'host shop' to see what else is out there.

A few months ago I tried media temple. What the heck right? I mean all the 'trendy' sites I went to seemed to have the {mt} badge on the site, plus the 'grid server' seemed to make sense to me. So I tried it. While it might have been ok for some people, the MySQL response time seemed slow. I also didn't seem to get the service I was used to at HostNine, so I went back.

Recently, when I needed to downsize my account from reseller to regular hosting, I decided to go host shopping. My criteria for a new host was cost, support, and the ability to host a good number of domains (around 20). I also wanted a solid host that wasn't going to go belly-up during this crappy economy. Unknowingly that HostNine changed their hosting packages, and after a couple of days looking, I went with HostGator.

Now, Hostgator and Hostnine both offer 'Unlimited' space, domains, and bandwidth. I'm smart enough to know that nothing is unlimited and also aware of hosts overselling server resources (which is why I left hostmonster to go to h9 18 months ago). I knew that on a good day my sites might take up a total of 3-4 gigs and I've never had bandwidth issues. But I get 'inspiration' frequently to buy a domain and start a new website.

I canceled my account with HostNine and went with HostGator.

Here's the kicker with HostGator and why I went back to HostNine: While Hostgator says 'Unlimited Space' they do keep a count on how many files you have. After 50,000 files they will remove your account from backups (and hence not back-up your site). At 250,000 files on the server they could suspend your account. It was no big deal at first. But then I started moving over my wordpress, expression engine, phpbb, and custom sites and realized that with the files in these scripts, plus e-mail, temp files, cache files, and images (even little icons), I could hit the 50,000 mark rather quickly. CRAP! Even if I stay at 3 gigs, I could still go over the file limits.

Realize that I moved all my sites to hostgator and all propagation had been completed.
At this time I did some more research on hosts and realized that HostNine changed their hosting packages and offers what Hostgator does without the limitations.

So (watch the order of events as I screwed this up) I submitted a cancellation request to HostGator. I THEN went to HostNine and started a live chat with Ben. I explained to him that I needed to downgrade my old account and not cancel it. I also explained to him that I needed to open up my new account ASAP because I was scared that because I canceled my account at HostGator I would miss any cancelation verification or any support tickets at either place.

Ben (HostNine operations manager), at that moment, took the time to personally downgrade my account and make sure I had all the information I needed to transfer my domains back to HostNine before I lost any important emails. My hosting issues were resolved in 10 minutes.

And, to look back, it's been like that with support since I started with hostnine. Unless I step away from the computer, support requests were responded to quickly and usually resolved painlessly.

Once I get more clients, I will go back to reseller hosting with H9. I just wanted to write a positive review for a great experience. If anyone is looking for a great host, try

Like I said to Ben - after being with bluehost, dreamhost, hostmonster, hostgator, and media temple, I think hostnine is the best for what I need.

Hostnine Review

Apr 17, 2009

I was going to wait on this until I heard back from HostNine about my backups, but I'll go ahead and review them. By the way for anyone interested, you can view their F rating for yourself at the Better Business Bureau: [url]

I have used 6 hosts during my 9 years on the internet. Of those 6, HostNine is the 3rd longest at 9 months. It did seem to be the answer to what I was looking for. Back then the price was only $3.95 a month with no contracts. I could pay by the month, and I was a bit gun shy back then after going through 2 back to back bad situations, so I didn't want to pay for another year in advance and fear not getting my money back if I needed to leave.

I'm sure you've all heard the phrases, Don't judge a book by its cover and/or If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Well, HostNine fits both of those. You can't assume the company is reputable because they seem to be what you want and need. True, they have a very good uptime. I only had one problem in the first month, but my site was only down for a few hours, and I've had no problems since then (until I was suspended that is). I was assured it was another user that was taken care of. Well, I now know what they mean by "taken care of." My site has grown a little bit during those 9 months, but I never got even close to the max storage space or bandwidth allowed.

This host will suspend you after one thing that they feel violates their TOS. They don't care if it's fair. They don't care if the problem is easy to fix. They don't care if it's never happened before or that it won't happen again. Hostnine is a One Strike You're Out company. They act like it's to protect their other customers, but they wouldn't delay suspending any of those customers for the slightest reason. Is this what you would want to trust with your business?

They have a community forum that is comprised of their friends and loyal followers. If you dare post anything even slightly negative on that forum, a member will tell you that it's wrong...or your post will be deleted. HostNine expects all their members to visit this forum on a daily basis to read about any maintenance or server downtimes. Unless you join that community and become friends with the staff, they show you no loyalty if a problem arises. I don't want to be friends with my host. I just expect them to run in the background and provide the service I pay for.

I would never go back to HostNine, since I cannot trust them. BUT they promised me a backup, which I have in an email:

> From: HostNine Abuse <>
> Subject: [#ITH-505861]: Account Suspended: judelb
> Date: Monday, April 13, 2009, 7:02 AM
> We can provide a backup and please stop emailing support for
> a restore.
> Regards,
> Alex Jankuv
> Hostnine Support

I have waited and still have not received the backup. I have emailed and asked, but they are now ignoring me. Well, I won't be ignored. It doesn't hurt my feelings that they don't want me to be a customer anymore. I have a feeling I know why. They recently raised their prices to $6.95 a month to be prepaid for a full year. They are probably trying to weed out those of us that were paying $3 less on a monthly basis. Whether or not this is true is moot, though. I don't care what their reasons are, but I do care about not having received the backups they have promised me...and believe it or not, this could happen to you as well. I read all the negative reviews for HostNine out there, but I felt I would give them a chance. Until someone has burnt me, I try not to judge, but I'm here to try to save anyone else from this. My website is currently running on an old backup. I've had a lot of personal issues the last year, so I haven't downloaded any backups in awhile. It hurts my site and online business to be running on an old backup. How hard would it be for HostNine to give me the promised backups? I wouldn't think it that hard...would you?

My Story With Hostnine

Feb 7, 2009

I've been with Hostnine for over a year now. Overall comment: service is good and support is OK but needs some work. HOWEVER, today I was threatened that my reseller account will be terminated in 72 hours. An unknown person, at the time, ddosed my website. I never even heard of the attacker until recently after the attack was made when other members from my community told me who he was. I run a gaming community, and the attacker apparently ddosed my website because I'm "stealing his players and reputation". Our community is bigger than his and perhaps he was a bit jealous, I'm not sure, but back on topic...

Hostnine claimed that "I am a danger to other clients and I'm putting them at risk".

This was their reason for shutting down my main account (the one that was ddosed). I contacted support via phone explaining the issue and I was inquiring why my account should be terminated over something I was completely innocent in and a victim of. They claimed it wasn't their decision to cancel the account and that is was strictly up to the abuse department. Text may sound louder than words, but all I said to the technician was it was "bs" (edited to bypass filter, sorry admins). I didn't say it in an angered voice nor was I yelling, cussing at, or being rude or insulting anyone. I said it in a calm voice and the next thing I hear is "You know what, you have a good day" and he hung up on me. Understandable I suppose, he took my words offensively even though I wasn't being rude about it.

Anyways, another technician replied to an open ticket I had open previously about the attack. He stated that I was completely rude and insulting the tech, and that they feel my entire reseller account should be terminated. They said they are here to give me support, not to be abused and insulted. I understand that, but I wasn't being insulting to the guy. The tech had no right to hang up on me, the other tech had no right to accuse me of "insulting and being rude to another tech", and he also had no right to completely remove my account for something so stupid. It seems they take everything offensively and just flip out over the slightest thing.

I can verify that as well. There was an earlier incident where a tech was being completely rude to me and he got fired because he randomly snapped at me. Anyways, putting aside the phone call, they completely misunderstood that I was the victim of a serious attack. They're basically taking it out on me for being a major risk to other clients and they're going to terminate my account, when what they should be doing is leaving me alone and pursuing the attacker. After all, I was the victim and the attacker was the one doing wrong.

I feel like I'm being punished for something I didn't do. What could I have done to prevent this? I tried explaining that to the host but they don't care -at all-. They have no sympathy and have been completely rude during the entire issue. And during the phone call, even if the tech did take offensively to what I said, that still doesn't give them a reason to completely terminate my account. My payments are usually always made on time, I'm patient when having issues, and I'm just an overall average good client, in my eyes.

So to sum it all up, I WOULD NOT recommend this host. If you're looking for good servers, go ahead and go with Hostnine. But the support can be terrible at times because some of the techs are really moody and have short tempers. And if you get ddosed by a random person, forget it, you might as well just think you did the attack yourself, because either way your account will be terminated because you'll become a risk to other clients.

Hostnine has A LOT of negative reviews. Some good too, but the majority of all reviews, I'd say, are negative. Search for yourself, there are dozens of topics on this forum about them.

HostNine - They Do Seem To Care

Jun 29, 2008

On Thursday, I posted a review (on anther host review site)* of H9 which was not very complimentary to say the least. To my surprise on Friday morning I had an email from Ben Gabler the Operations Manager with H9 and his email expressed some concerns about what I had written. He asked if he could call me to discuss my problems and to cut a long story short, we spent 45 minutes on the phone on Friday afternoon and he gave me the impression that he is a guy who is really concerned that all H9 customers get what they want in terms of both price and service.

Ben's call came at a very opportune moment as on Friday morning I had spent several hours with my new hosting company trying to get tech support from a supposedly 24/7 tech support team - it just didn't happen - and 48 hours later, it still hasn't!

He gave me several good reasons to have another go with H9 - none of them monetary! One of the things we discussed at length was tech support. Ben explained to me why they were trying to get customers to use tickets rather than the telephone, the reasons are to long to go into here but I do now believe that for 99% of everyday problems it is actually better to use a ticket system rather than the phone. I am surprised at my own reaction here because I far prefer to pick the phone up than tap away at the keyboard, but as Ben pointed out, with a ticket system, you have a full trail of what was said by by yourself and the person dealing with the ticket - ain't no arguing with that!

I have to say that I was very impressed that he looks at the reviews posted here and he was concerned enough about my complaint to actually do something about it personally.

So, I decided to give H9 another try. During the early hours of Saturday morning, H9 transferred several accounts from the other web hosting company to my H9 account, For the most part the transfers went without a hitch and the one problem there was was sorted within 10 minutes of my seeing and reporting it to H9.

So from a good start to a patchy week, I have come back to being a very satisfied customer.

If no one objects, I'll post regular updates here.


*I have since tried to add a correction to the review that I wrote but is seems that it canít be done and I have had no reply to the email I sent to the siteís admins asking to add to the review. That is why this is being posted here.

Becoming A Hosting Affiliate

May 16, 2009

I am planning to signup with one or more web hosts as an affiliate to make some money and would like to get some suggestion from you guys. (BTW, I have read plenty of old posts here at WHT and reading more when I find time).

- What is(are) the hosts that provide top recurring payouts (20% and above)? anyone in particular to avoid ?

- Is it wise to join only one or join atleast a few (2 or 5 ?) to spread the risk ?

- lastly, can money (mid 4 figures per month) be really made by being an affiliate ?

Anything else you would like to share.

HostNine.COM - Fraudulent And NOT Trustworthy

Apr 14, 2008

I'd just like to tell you about my experience with from a web development point of view.

I have recently coded their new website from PSD to HTML files, for the agreed fee of £177. 50% has been paid upfront, and a further 50% paid upon completion.

The work was completed 6 days ago, and since this I have been in contact with the company on a daily basis. I have been ignored and shunned away. I have been blocked from viewing their website (prooven), blocked from their AIM accounts (proven) and their online and telephone supports have been highly dismissive.

Only today, when I put pressure on the Operations Manager (whom I was dealing with - Ben Gabler), by ringing him directly, did I get a proper email response:


At this point we are not satisfied with your work and have no need for the layout. We have had several professional coders look at the code and have said it's not professional at all. I'm sorry things did not work out and we wish you the best.

I'd like to point out two things - my code is of the utmost excellence as many of you will know. I'm awaiting to hear what his professional coders have to say. Also, a deadline was never set in any of the E-Mail correspondance or MSN correspondance, all of which I have logs for. I completed the work in 3 days - timely enough one should think.

This company is rude, obnoxious and does not operate in a professional manner. Their telephone support answer the phone as "Hey, whats up?" and end the conversations with "Alright Jonny, see ya.." when I introduced myself as Jonathan Nathanson. Overall, I wouldn't reccomend them to anyone, and I am currently seeking guidance as to what I can do from here.

Please note that for a commission to become valid the referred website has to be active and running.

I am not sure why the customer I referred did not run his site on WHB, but I guess one possible reason might be like this

Hiding Affiliate Links

Jul 3, 2007

I'm creating a site similar to slickdeals & bensbargains and I'm trying to find a script that I can integrate into my text editor (tinymce.moxicode) that will create a tiny url as well as the redirect page automatically using php & mysql.

Looking at the following mouseover link from slickdeals:

slickdeals dot net/?pno=6999&lno=1&afscr=1

where it always starts with slickdeals dot net/

?pno=6999 each deal added gets a +1 to this number. The next deal would be 7000.

&lno=1 each link within a particular deal. Where the first link to the deal is lno=1, the next link (rebate) would be lno=2, etc.

&afscr=1 I'm not sure what this is for, I moused over a bunch of their links and they are all =1.

But the bottom line effect is that when you click on one of their links, it brings you momentarily to a blank page and then bestbuy dot com/etc/etc/etc comes up. The user never sees the funky affiliate link.

The best I've found so far is gentlesource dot com/short-url-script/
