    Hi everyone!
    I've been working with Hostwinds affiliates for over a year now, making money, earning commissions,
    and getting my commissions approved time after time, while I'm sending REAL customers, that purchased a website design from me.
    Everytime I sent a customer, I also sent hostwinds a message with the customer details, telling them to make sure the commssion isn't missed.
    2 days ago, Hostwinds decided to SUSPEND MY ACCOUNT, out of the blue.
    My account had over 600$ APPROVED COMMISSIONS and over 1000$ pending commissions.
    I spoke with their customer service, no answer.
    Sent them an email, and sent a message to the HostWinds account here on BHW.
    I spoke with Rob, the marketing manager, he told me that he would help and speak with the manager about it and try to help.
    A day later, I call back and hear that the manager decided that I broke the terms of service because I sent messages about the commissions, and that I shouldn't have done that, and told me that I will get NO MONEY BACK!
    THAT IS PURE THEFT! I invested a lot of money into advertising, and Hostwinds decides to just BLOCK the account in one day!

    If you want to make money in the hosting affiliate area, NEVER TRUST HOSTWINDS, THEY WILL BLOCK YOUR ACCOUNT ONCE YOU'VE MADE THEM A NICE AMOUNT OF MONEY, AND WILL NEVER GIVE IT BACK TO YOU.

    that's very sad to know, we are not expecting this kind of business from hostwinds.com they are very reputed member here.

    damn I have same feeling like, no words ........

    but we will love to listen other side of story from Hostwinds.com $600 approved and $1000 pending commission is huge money for any affiliate marketer and we can understand how much hardwork and investment he has done in advertising or marketing e,t,c

    @Hostwinds should provide more details about this ...
