    Hello people,
    I´m pretty new at this forum so I still have a load of questions.

    As a little warm up, I wrote some imacros for for YLH, which worked splendidly, made some niche videos (just tests) and got them about 10k views.
    Now its time to take a monetizing attempt.

    I need to set up a site. Well and as I gathered the facts so far, HG is good hoster for all kind of stuff including adult related content.

    Buuuut I got some questions before I signup to HG

    1) Do you guys ever show your real IP to HG? Do you use your real data (names, adress etc) sorry for this questions, my instinct says hell no.

    2) If no, do you need a fake Paypal Acc? since I cant use my real one. Read on this in the forums yesterday.

    3) I´m really not a big fan of proxies, since the free ones are slow. Any suggestions for a good paid one? Do I need a paid in the beginning? Or is ist even doable witch a free?

    I´m really looking forward to hearing your opinion on 1 and 2 :)

    if u are using a legit website and not scamming why not have the real data

    u can always use private whois to hide that data

    using fake data theyre most likely flag your account after they take your money and then you have to call them and confirm you are who you say you are.

    In my opinion, if you aren't doing anything that would be a problem it's better to just use real data so you don't have to deal with the BS sapo mentioned.

    If i we're you, i will use my real data...i remember when i apply for a baby account in hostgator, they called me to check if i am real, they ask questions with regards to my application...after that, they activate my hosting account.

    Don't do that, trust me. They will suspend your account and make you verify it. They used to misunderstand me for fraud and I needed to verify my application with my ID card.
