    We extend all sales for one month, I believe that November commissions will be paid on January 10th if valid.

    Well, I had a terrible experience with hostgator about 2 years ago:

    I have some sites and profit about $6000 in commissions per month - one day I received a mail from hostgator telling that my sales are all fraudlant - and they black listed me from their program - I talked with hostgator aff manager at that time (Mr. Jason Muni) and he began to ask me things like "do you incentive sales?" "Do you send spams?" - he did an extensive conversation by mail asking non sense things and in the end just stopped answering mails.

    I asked him if he think that I'm scamming that he should contact CJ and he refused - he decided to be the detective himself and accused me.

    Today I'm black listed from CJ Hostgator program even he asked me to get in again (what is impossible)- maybe this is nothing for some of you. But being accused of scammer by Hostgator is the most terrible experience I had in 5 years in affiliate marketing.

    It's better to use CJ based hostgator affiliate membership. Rather it is going to be very difficult to believe host gator's tracking system.

    This whole thread has turned me off the idea of affiliate marketing altogether. Geesh! Adsense is lookin' pretty good right now. Shaving? Short of selling your own products, there doesn't seem to be any way to earn revenue. It's impossible to trust those companies you've partnered with.

    And c'mon Hostgator. The OP has proof. Do the right thing. Keep your good name, for crying out loud. It's not worth it.

    I've read so much carp today, I'm about ready for a real job. Website hosts suspending peoples accounts/websites without warning. The lies of hosting companies -- "unlimited" is not unlimited -- and domain registrars stealing the domain if someone leaves the computer for a few minutes. And oh, there's so much more.

    I get paid by hostgator every time. Obviously if you send them customers that are fraudulent then you will not be paid

    A huge thing would be the fact that some people have their cookies deleted at random points of the day. Or just don't store cookies. Without cookies, there is no sale.

    Another more realistic factor would be the fact they just before purchasing hostgator, they checked out another site in order to make sure it was the right product to use.

    Did they miss the locking day this month? It looks like they didn't correct anything from August and didn't even extend the commissions from September. I think there was something wrong with their systems, because normally they cut at least 50% and extend everything. I hope they still pay CJ though...

    Ok, that was too early. They are starting to correct them now, even they were already locked. The correction date is the 11th, so CJs definition of "locked" is actually not true.

    did anyone notice that hostgator representatives bot did NOT reply to the thread after asking for information?

    maybe op got the info in the pm itself but a little info to the people wouldn't have hurt them!

    This is just another thread for disgruntled web hosting affiliates that don't know how to play by the rules. Plain and simple.

    You make it sound like the answer to his questions ("do you incentive sales?" "Do you send spams?" ) were yes... Were you offering incentives or sending unsolicited emails?

    f a company has their own affiliate scheme and one that's outsourced, the internal one probably has less overhead and allows the promoters to make more money. This is why I'm using Hostgator's own program, while the payout is lower, there doesn't seem to be any disappearing sales and the monthly performance incentive makes an even higher commission possible.

    Look, if you make them legit sales there is no point in them being a pain in the ass for you so the best thing you can do is drop an email explaining very calmly what happened and to check it out. I had a similar experience on GoDaddy and they were so nice they even credited me for orders made which weren't holding my cookie simply by showing proof and the value that I bring to their sale numbers.

    well, if you decide on other host to promote, just don't go onto hostnine.... $120 per sale and I have never seen the commissions for 2 sales. No answer from them too, besides one canned answer on the first and unique reply.

    Sorry to hijack your thread, but just wanted you to know, too.
