    I'm going to buy some hosting. I wanted Hostgator because I thought it was $8/mo... but that's only if you buy 3 years. Not sure who to go with now. Any ideas? Give some suggestions on hosting...

    So, howsabout you give me the $$ to sign up for 6mo-1yr, and you get the commission? It's a good deal since you get more than the price I pay... takes a bit of trust but I can show you my ebay feedback or something. Plus I have 1 iTrader point :D




    EDIT: I have a new idea... since most of you won't trust me enough... how about I pay the hosting, sign up under a trustworthy board members link, then you pay me once you receive your commission?

    ONLY CONDITION: your payout is coming soon so you can pay me quickly!


    Under this method, I'm willing to sign up for $100-300 hosting plans, ie 3 years. So gimme your offers!

    I'm really not trying to rip anyone off. I'm trying to make friends here, and make money. You can't do that as a thief.

    Well you're right, but my point is that it's not a long-term thing. I simplified it too much.. there are plenty of reasons why I'm not a thief LOL

    I see what you're saying biz, but why wouldn't they pay?

    If you're not used to hosts that use cPanel then you might want to take a look at www*nearlyfreespeech*net. You pay for what you use, so most people don't go over 1 cent a day.

    Thanks molten, this looks way too good to be true!

    Ah I figured it out.

    I think my OP is a better price.

    Offer still stands!

    Say what? Why is it such a big risk? This doesn't make sense to me.

    I'm buying the hosting, and when you get paid out, you pay me. You pay me AFTER YOU GET YOUR COMMISSION.

    I'm not questioning your intent or honesty, but there is no real reward for anyone to do this.

    The way I see it, your asking someone to give you a years hosting $96 in return we get HostGators $120 commission. Not only do we have to wait the 60 days for HG to pay out, they are notorious for not crediting commissions. It really doesn't make much financial sense.

    Didn't know HG took 60 days. That's why I said you should give me other offers.

    I'm offering my commission, I figured you'd try to make it work.
