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.
For those of you who offer Virtuozzo VPS and especially PBAS, what affiliate program do you use that can integrate well with Virtuozzo/PBAS? I have been sending request to Parallels development team regarding the affiliate program integration to PBAS but after serveral years this has been a dead request.
Thinking about migrating a couple of blogs over from blogger.com to a paid host, since I really want to migrate over to using wordpress. No, I do not want to use wordpress.com.
I've done a little research, and stumbled across site5.com and webhostingbuzz.com. I like them because they both have active user forums, and the basic hosting plans are very affordable, if you pay for a couple of years in advance. Site5.com seems to have gotten mixed reviews recently, since apparently they just merged with ThePlanet, guess that is another hosting company. Webhostingbuzz, interestingly enough, the servers are in the US, but the support is in the Ukraine. They have a really cheap price, potentially $3.95/month.
I've read through lots of online reviews and even this forum for advice. It's a bit overwhelming the amount of options out there. Just want to host a couple of blogs and small websites. And preferably, a cheap price, since I am hosting the sites right now for free on blogger.
Also considered hostgator.com, but they are a bit pricier.
I have been referred to this company by one of my friend while I was in search for an asian reseller. They only provide US resellers but I have given a try any way coz their attractive low priced offer on top of that I was given a coupon by my friend and I only had to spend around $50 for 6 months for the reseller plan
Few days after signup I had a huge downtime that lasted several hours and I was told there was a problem with their data center. I was very upset in the first place but other than that I never had any downtimes.
I had only one issues with them and it was resolved for me by their live chat and they were very helpful.
That's it for now and I'll review them after few months.
Would I recommend this host? YES! despite the downtime but I guess it was only one time issues hope it stays that way!
In their terms of service, they state that if files over 500kb exceeds 10% of the space your uploaded files, you are violating their Acceptable Use Policy and will suspend your account.
This is clearly out to fraud their clients because if you upload 10 large pictures and put them on a website along with a simple HTML page, you are effectively breaking their terms. So watch out for these tricks.
I have been a client of WHB since 2002. I use them just for a couple of galleries and such through the years. Recently, I made a business that serves MP3's for a couple of my clients. I bought a their plan for 300GB and 2TB transfer. I knew that they weren't selling 300GB nor 2TB transfer so I read their AUP which stated that they were really selling about 10% if you want to host files greater than 500KB.
I used about 15GB of space and and 30GB of bandwidth a month which is 5% of the disk space and 1.5% of the bandwidth that they claim to give you. This is clearly not abuse under any interpretation. However, it violates their AUP and I have been suspended.
I could have fill up 150GB of their disk space with garbage HTML files to accomdate the AUP but I would consider that abusing their service.
Beware of their AUP when you want to host with WHB. Make sure that you understand the terms or else they have the upper hand.
I was not doing any sort of annoying activities such as emailing, linking a zillion domains, using CPU time, breaking copyright, or otherwise abusing their service.
I'm only writing this to warn people of the potential pitfalls in using WHB. If any of you recommend a web host that isn't out to get you with questionable terms, please post it because I have to move my website and files. My budget is about $30 a month.
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 ?
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'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/
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!
