    yeah i thawt this was a scam, but went along with it just to try and see.

    epic fail. 000webhost is shit, i just sent a support ticket, doubt it will get replied to.

    Oh! this is on the payments page.

    Code:
    This is a list of your payments. We will send payment when your account reaches $100 balance. Payment is sent on the first day of new month.
    
    At the moment you have 1 signups ($5) ready to be paid (1 signups are active for 30 days or more). Payment will be issued once you will have 20 active signups (that is $100). 
    fuck i cant be bothered testing it out that far! anyone actually been paid?

    They make money through paid upgrades, like more disk space for example. They also accept donations from users who are happy with their services. In addition, 000 is the sister site of a paid hosting company.

    I've had a blog on them for about a year now, and have had no trouble at all! When I had a question getting things set up, they responded within an hour, and this was at about 11 p.m. my time.

    I don't know about the affiliate payments, though, as I haven't used that method to monetize it, but I expect they will not screw you.

    Read their terms carefully. Every ref site must meet a certain amount of traffics then it'll be considered "active"
