    Same with me. I've had quite a few signups yet only 1 has been deemed valid so far.

    Active - Active commissions are valid and paid up to date, if a commission is Active at the time of a payout it will be paid.
    Inactive - The commission has been flagged for inactivity; either the customer's primary domain name is not resolving to our servers, or the customer has not uploaded any files to their account as of the time of payout.
    No Tax Form - We require the affiliate to submit a W9 (US) or W8-BEN (non-US) tax form before we can pay the commissions.
    Overdue - Overdue means that the customer is currently overdue with us, overdue accounts are not eligible for a commission.
    Threshold - This means the commission appears to be valid, but the affiliate has not met the minimum $100 threshold for payout.
    Duplicate - A duplicate commission belongs to a customer who already has an existing account with us; a duplicate commission will never be eligible to be paid.
    Cancelled - A cancelled commission means that the customer has cancelled his or her account with us, this commission will not be eligible to be paid.
    Fraud - Fraud means that either the customer did not verify their account information with us at signup, it can also mean the customer charged back or used a stolen credit card to make their purchase. Fraud accounts are not eligible to be paid, but can change back to active if a customer verifies their account with us.
    Expired - This commission was not eligible to be paid out at its scheduled payout date.

    Check these DOMAINS and you will see


    $50 PAID?

    There is $100 minimal payout?

    Inactive.. this is too funny. How do we disprove "the customer's primary domain name is not resolving to our servers"

    Those are pretty stiff rules for payout, and only $50 a head? I had a short go with another company that paid double that.

    Huh..Well, there have also been GoDaddy hacked accts, so that any domain through GoDaddy was shut down briefly--- Mainly it was just security sites.

    You did their dirty work, they got the money from those innactives, and finally they decided to fuck you. Basic business coming from a company that makes it's money from being the most piss poor ever to have hit the Web Hosting seas! I would actually just report them to the BBB for not paying and fraud and see if I got any money out of it... You also got the FTA to report them to as well.

    I have the same problem, I use to do pretty well, few thousand a month in commission, the first 3 months, then I even dont check anymore, all the sales got cancelled.
    Now I made a new account new details, new paypal, cloaking the links from my sites, lets see how will go.

    Get use to it if you promote them. It has happened to me. They are not worth promoting, especially if your are using any sort of ppc.

    Try promoting JustHost through CJ?

    Anyone who can actually get into HG's affiliate program at CJ? They seemed to have closed it off completely. It's as though they are forcing people to sign up directly at HG, so that they could simply scrape off more of your commissions.

    But the thing is that new affiliates can't seem to promote them. As soon as you apply they automatically reject your application. Fucked up system I say.
