Here's a method of making money which some people may consider far beyond "Black Hat". It involves exploiting the Host Gator (hostgator.com) affiliate program and could make you as much money as you want depending on how much time you put into it. I'll outline the method in a simple step by step overview of what you are required to do. STEP 1 - The first step is to register as an affiliate at: hxxp://www.host*gator.com/affiliates.shtml STEP 2 - Once you have activated and set up your affiliate account, you are going to want to find some proxy software like TOR (torproject.org) which you will need to install and make sure it's working by going to something like: hxxp://www.what*ismyip.com STEP 3 - Go and sign up for multiple paypal accounts at paypal.com. STEP 4 - Now here's the part where it gets interesting. First of all you are going to want to clear your cookies. Once you have done that, enable TOR and go to hostgator through your own affiliate link which should look something like this: http://secure.hostgator.com/cgi-bin/affiliates/clickthru.cgi?id=wealthy199 STEP 5 - Now click on web hosting, and order the "baby" plan. Go through all the steps required into you reach the part where you select the billing cycle. Select 3 months @ $29.85 and now you have the chance to enter a coupon. Here is where the whole plan falls into place. You should now enter the coupon code HGC25 which magically takes the price down to $19.95 for the three months of hosting. Now if you had read the page for the affiliate program at hostgator you will have realised that $50 which you earn in affiliate commissions for every sign up and $29.85 which is the cost of the hosting doesn't quite add up. This little mis-calculation that hostgator has done leaves it open for exploitation and is exactly what we are going to do. Exploit! Each time you sign up for a new hosting plan, you pay $29.85 and get $50. It's that simple. So why the three month hosting and not just one month? Because hostgator think they can catch out fraudsters by waiting 60 days before paying commissions. So now you know the method, here are a few tips for you. Firstly, I say you should sign up for multiple paypal account so that each time you sign up for hosting, you have a different account to pay with. Secondly, You should clear your cookies every time you do it and be sure to enable TOR just to make sure you don't get caught. Now I know this is a risky technique to even talk about, but I feel some people who really really really need the cash may benefit from it.
