    Hey Guys...some (probably very few) have noticed my "stories"...so here is another one!

    So i got my Bluehost account hacked last week...They injected SQL s#it and other "goodies" - obviously hackers wanted to use my sites/hosting as spamming platform. There is a lot of tech details that i will leave out. Since i know computers well i managed to get rid of all the s#it without having to pay $49 for a site clean up as tech support suggested! Especially good because i got like 20 websites.

    I am 99% sure hackers got into my hosting thru infected shared PLUGINS and THEMES that i used. No other explanation.
    And to be on safe side i deleted databases and uninstalled WP from about 15 websites. Only left a couple that i use on daily basis!

    And given the fact that i had to delete lots of website...i finally got enough courage, time and determination to QUIT BEING AN AFFILIATE!!!! YeY..Hurray!!!

    Becoming a Product Creator was a long time dream of mine...but managing so many different projects took all my time! Now i finally did it...
    1 Week after the hacks i have the product almost ready, sales page almost ready and soon to be ready to get affiliates to work for me!

    I am staying off MMO niche though i do have 3 ideas when i decide to step in!
    Hopefully this was my "step in big boys shoes" move and it will be successful!

    PS... Any advice from Product Creators is dearly welcomed and appreciated!

    Like which platform to sell my products on...other than Clickbank....something that has lots of affiliates...and other words of wisdom! :cool:

    Thanks!

    It is a Health niche product. Actually a Product made of 3 smaller products. Will be sold separately and when people buy one they get the other 2 at special price.
