    I see lots of people use or want to use Hostgator. I just QUIT from there and can make more money from affiliate program than they paid me hourly.


    THey are so cheap towards the employees, so be nice when you get support since they get paid very low and have to deal with lots of crap, usually min 5 people at the same time. Ever wonder why the live chat takes forever sometimes???

    SO, if you have any questions about Hostgator issues or questions PM ME or post here and I can give you the real inside info.

    Is it better to be a affiliate directly with HG or go with CJ?

    I posted a thread with the coupons a while back
    Turns out they are a big float and only care about numbers and saying they get signups. ABout 1000 a day signup and 500 are spammers and fraud.

    I know how to bypass getting your account marked as fraud and how not to get id verification and even if you get that email how to bypass it.

    I want to share all for free but i want to finally make money from what they screwed me on. I have an idea to make us all some money using the skills some have on here combined with the insider info I know.

    Oh the building is a 4 story old bank. 1st floor is for Voipo and 2nd is not there offices. 3 and 4 are all cubes for the techs they underpay and admins. You know we didnt get paid breaks, no vacay pay or sick time.

    WOW, im a gay fag. NIce, leave the thread.
    If you used live chat you would know that it takes mins for a reply to the simpliest question and I explained why that happens.

    Sue me huh, truth is affirmative defense to anything.

    Yes, CS is cookie stuffing...

    I know how to make really good money CS hostgator but I am afraid that I will get banned at the end and not get paid. If you can help me stay under the radar with your insider info I am ready for a JV.

    PM me...

    They dont care about anything but spamming and abusing the server.

    The VPN are designed for advanced users and they kinda leave that out. IT iss really a dedicated server that is not setup. It is designed for advanced users who KNOW how to tweak the settings and 99% of VPN users hate it since they werent aware that nothing is setup like it was on the shared accounts and dont understand why nothing works the same.
    The shared hosting is setup so people cant kill the servers since they cram so many people on a server.

    They only time they care about content is if they get DCMA notice from someone and most times if you just rely they will turn your account on. IF you go over BW, your account just shows the error. I wouold use the baby plan and only run that one site since you get unlimited BW

    PASSING ID is something I can teach you, but waiting before I share everything. Seems rude people in the thread not appreciative of insider info.

    Whoever has the stroke, would love to chat about a way we can make money from them. PM ME

    ignore the thread jacking no0bs and thnx for the info but the VPS is so much cheaper and hosting companies say unlimited but a video tube site even a small one would take atleast 20-40 gigs in my opinion always if they say 'unlimited' then why have the VPS option too, but would they help out in setting up the VPS to users? or would it be a pain in the a$$?

    So, they don't care about CS? What if I am making $300-$500/day CS them with blank referrers?

    Sorry, but I just wanna make sure that I will get paid before I start stuffing them.

    (Mods: sorry for mentioning CS, delete this post if you think that its braking the rules)

    They dont care about the BW you use on baby paln. They really dont, So many morons signup to get rich quick that they never use any BW so all evens out.

    They VPS, they wont really help you setup. You can email support, which is always the way to go unless you need something simple like a pw reset since Admins answer email and us lowly phone techs with limited access to fix things do phones and live chat.

    If you knew what tweaks you wanted they would do those on vps for you, but they just wont tweak it for you.
