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 ?
I am planning to create a hosting directory really soon and sign up affiliate accounts of the most popular hosting providers. What recommendations could you provide me with to make visitors become interested in ordering hosting from my website?
I say relative, because I have built several websites in the past, going back to 1998 or so, but have never really pursued it heavily, and only recently have decided to get into the game on a more proactive scale.
In searching for a web host, I run across common TOS which seems on the surface to exclude what I want to do, which among other niches I've got in mind, include investing (gold, real estate, forex, commodities, etc.).
Maybe some of the hosting vendors here can help me with clarification. I do not want to host an investment platform, like a stock or forex trading platform. I just want to publish info sites with affiliate links to the investment products I deem worthy.
Any problem with that? If so, does anyone know of good hosting for such sites?
I've perused many hosting forums lately and find this one to be among the top of the top! Good job WHT owners!
I need to switch two corporate web sites from a provider which has been providing spotty up time and poor reliability especially on their email servers; worst thing about them is that when they're down we get no notice, until we notice or customers complain. We've had outages for email that lasted as long as 72 hours. I'm not sure how our service is configured there, but I would guess shared hosting.
I understand the differences in shared hosting, virtual private or dedicated server, and dedicated hosting unmanaged or managed. What I'm not sure about is what would be best for our needs. If I dont get other advice, I'll probably sign up for shared hosting with a provider that has other service types available.
We do not do any E-commerce, but our website is our advertising and if we're down we can lose sales. Our customers need access to documentation downloads and get upset if we're down. Our current site has shown these statistics on average per day: 3000-4000 hits, 3000-4000 files 200 visits. Our monthly bandwidth was a maximum of 2GB over the past year. We need less than 50 email addresses.
Phone support is necessary, 24/7 would be nice. We need server monitoring and security, good uptime and reliability statistics or a guarantee. Control panel and statistics would be nice. We dont need any website design tools.
I've used Futurequest for a website in the past but their geared to E-Commerce and have no phone support. I have some websites registered with Dotster but they're very light on support. A colleague has used Lunarpages for similar businesses, I think, and he recommended them. He indicated they were good for him with phone support.
If you're still reading, I'd appreciate any guidance, both for type of service and for specific providers.

my company's current hosting contract expires in May and I'm in need to find another one that will hopefully suit me better and cause much less headache.
I'll try to list some basic needs I got:
10gb bandwidth 10gb space Mass email marketing ability! This is important!
I have a member list of about 30,000 who I email twice a week! These people are opt-in recipients of these emails.
On top of that I'd like to start mining and sending out opt-in requests of about 50-100,000 a month to NEW emails that I don't have direct permission to email.
I obviously have software to manage, clean, send out in batches, and do whatever else you have to for proper email marketing.
From some research I got the idea that I would be better off with some offshore VPS/dedicated host that won't shut us down for emailing. We will do our best to keep the bounces at minimum as well as keep up-to-date blacklists/unsubscribers.
we are thinking of starting a hosting company and was wondering what type of certificate we need to secure the sever and our clients can us to secure their carts? I see other hosting companies calling it a shared certificate. Sorry for the double post put it in the wrong area.
I'm starting a streetwear clothing company and am about to get a website done to display my catalogue - it will have medium amounts of flash and will be like most other e-commerce clothing stores
However, I won't be needing a full e-commerce site as I do not intend to sell through my website - if needed, all I hope to have on it is a link for payments to be made via paypal
What I will need is a host that is reliable and doesn't bug out as soon as traffic to my site increases - I have no idea as to the amount of traffic i will be receiving when things are just starting out but I'd like to at least be prepared for high traffic - I was stupid enough to believe in all the overselling from big hosting companies until I did more reading - now I know their limits are just for show and I want to avoid getting shut down or whatever for putting a load on their resources
My hope is that some of you learned ones can advise me on the direction i should be heading Though I have no idea exactly what VPS and dedicated servers are, I assume these are more suitable for my needs? Are big hosting companies more reliable when it comes to their package plans for VPS or dedicated servers?
When I try to set a domain's hosting type from "Forwarding" to "Website hosting" I get the following error:
Error: Unable to start (/c ""C:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskadminbinusermng.exe" exist [username]") at Plesk impersonation(PipeServer::ServerThread::runAs line 886) at Unable to execute applicationzif_plesk_proc_open line 1274)
What I tried: - Using different usernames; - Checked plesksrv.exe permissions [URL] ;
And right now I'm running the PP Reconfigurator tool, option Plesk File Security, cause I think this issue is related with permissions.
Does anyone knows if ubercart has embended affiliate tracking capabilities? Do you know if any other open source e-shop has this feature? Could you suggest something you know from experience or heard of?
I'm currently looking for another affiliate network other then motive interactive. I'm trying to find more advertisements for other areas in the world. I love motive interactive so far but it's focus is mainly on US. I have a few ads that I'm using for AUS, UK and Canada but what about the rest of the world.
I have $100 in affiliate payments showing in my affilate panel with hostnine.com 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?
I've seen everyone and there grandma promoting Hostgator. I was wondering if you can share if you're converting sales or not. I'm guessing the Hostgator program works if everyone seems to have an affiliate account.
