    Ever since HostGator and Host1Plus banned me for sites that were *somewhat* blackhat, I've transfered my blackhat sites for voidstone, which has everything I need (CPanel, Fantastico, unlimited domains, etc). Their affiliate program pays 10% per month, which is a low rate, but their hosting is great and shouldn't be too difficult to sell.

    It's also an offshore host, so people can host warez, porn whatever. They charge $1.50 a month with no contract, so I figured it'd be pretty easy to promote. But the trouble is that for each person I refer, I'm getting either $0.15 or $0.30 a month depending on the plan they choose. So I really need to scale the commisions up big time.

    I purchased
    Code:
    http://www.warez-webhosting.com
    yesterday in order to mask my affiliate link, and have a simple javascript redirect on a keyword optimized page.

    Whats the best way to promote this site? Google competition for my targetted key phrase is very low, and I should be able to get a #1 rank soon. The search phrase also gets more than 500 searches a month.

    Be creative! All responses get a +thx! :)

    In my opinion advertize on forums like here DP SP WF DNTEMPLE and all the others like them... There are plenty of webmaster forums and out of experience there wil always be someone looking for a cheap offshore host to host not so legal stuff.
    Put the link to your domain/aff link in your sig and post a post that you found this super great cheap off shore host that allows warez porn and all that...

    Another idea is have a contest in the forums that they tel you what they think about the host and you pay for one months hosting but you just say that some other guy won... Mayb your second account at that forum? This way you get reviews that you can use in a blog to promote it even more!
