    This is my first thread at BlackHat World, hope it will be useful. This method does require some initial startup money, it's earning potential is high, the method is very scaleable and can be combined with other methods.

    Web hosting is a highly competitive niche, hosting companies spend thousands of dollars to get traffic. Some even pay you a good amount of money for every new customer you send them. H0stgat0R (replace 0 with O) pays you $50-$125 (depending on the amount of sales per month) for every new customer you send them.

    This gives you many ways to get advantage of it: you can stuff cookies, post referal link on forums, sign up yourself as a referal, provide "free" site building services if your customer signs up under your link.

    In my opinion, the best way to take advantage of such high commisions is to sign yourself under you refferal link, getting multiple hosting accounts and sales commisions.

    Here's your steps:
    1) sign up as an affiliate at hostgator
    2) create a simple blog on which you will post your affiliate link
    3) sign up under you affiliate link from your blog. IMPORTANT - make sure you have a different IP address and CLEAR YOUR COOKIES + FLASH COOKIES! It is better if you have a second computer from which you can sign up and reinstall the system every time so you can be sure to delete all traces and use a public wifi hotspot so your IP will be different.
    4) use your hosting accounts for whatever you want - build autoblogs, create landing pages. Monetize them however you want. IMPORTANT - make sure your who-is information is hidden or different from your master account. If you don't have domains with hidden or fake whois, register some cheap .info domains for $1.95 at godaddy).
    5) You must use your hosting account for at least 3 months to get commisions. After you get your commisions, you can either continue using hostgator hosting services or move you site to another hosting.
    6) Make sure to send some junk traffic to get lower conversion rates.

    How mouch commisions will 1 account get you? The cheapest hosting account costs 7.95 x 3 months = $28. If you can create 21 accounts in one month, you will have $125 commissions: (21 x $125) - (21 x 28) = $2037 in 3 months with almost no work required + money you will get from monetizing your websites

    If you do everything I say, you should make some nice amounts of money in no time.

    i dont think it will take hostgator long to realise that the one client has all the accounts under an affialite

    in theory, according to their terms and conditions, the 21st sign up is worth $625 (as they apply the extra 25 to all referrals) so you can rest assured they will look into things in some details before shelling out $625 for a 7.95 referral

    i suspect they will shave like fuck

    and cry fowl at the earliest opportunity.

    Id aim to get 30 sign ups a month to be sure to be sure

    Maybe it was posted before, just got this idea today while signing up as an affiliate and decided to share.

    Did you take the necessary precautions:
    1) sign up under different IPs?
    2) erase all traces (format the disk, reinstall the OS)?
    3) use different payment information?
    4) use domains with different whois information?
    5) lower the conversion rate?
