    Hi all,

    I am new to posting on these boards, although I have lurked here for a while :).

    I have a few websites that are one of the leaders in a few top affiliate networks. Due to having popular websites like these I get a few affiliates who promote my websites using Spam. I personally do not use spam, but as I get Affiliates that do this is causing me problems with web hosts. As soon as the web host gets a report of spam directing to my website I am given a warning, then next time they want me gone.

    I require a web host for these websites that will not be so tough on me should a few reports of spam come from people.

    Any ideas?

    Hope to hear from some of you soon!

    Cheers

    Do you ban the affiliates after the spam reports? If you did, I'm fairly sure you wouldn't have a problem.

    The affiliates just make another account then begin again, so a ban is uselss in this case.

    What are your affiliate terms? They shouldn't even reach payout.... before they get banned... which makes creating a new account pointless.

    Try a small hosting provider that is more a "peoples" company and doesn't treat you like a number so you can more so get a fairer deal when the shit hits the fan. One in my sig is OK.
