I am running the free website method and am doing alright so far. Currently I am doing a mix between providing my own hosting and using the Hostgator Affiliate program (not through CJ). I heard some wonderful and not so wonderful things about the aff program and want to know what the verdict is for those who have experience with their program. All the people I refer purchase a yearly package up front, if that helps. Are there any better hosting affs or should I stick with HG?
