    Prosper202 has to be on the root domain, so your LP should reside in a subdirectory, such as /lp/whatever.html and just enter URL as usual.

    Better yet, to make it easier to maintain, I suggest installing prosper in a subdomain instead, like track.yoursite.com and then use yoursite.com completely for your LPs.

    Unless you are using a dedicated server, you might want to rethink this or it will crater on you when you need it the most. Prosper 202 is a resource HAWG.

    If you get a lot of traffic, shared hosting can't even push it (I suppose depending on the hosting company). As your site gains momentum and traffic, the load increases, and the whole shebang will crater. It may not stop working, but it will have incomplete transactions and errors (and therefore unhappy customers), and you will loose customers and money and not even know.

    If your are using PPC and lose a couple of days up-time without realizing it, it can be a disaster. Talk to your hosting co about this if in doubt.

    Let me clarify that this was the case when I used it a couple of years ago, unless major changes have been made since then, you might need to upgrade your hosting.

    Anyone using it now may be able to shed light on the subject.
