I've been a Lunarpages affiliate since April and I made 8 sales until June. The checks came in and the cash was unfrozen after 30 business days($%^* Canadian banks...).
I made another sale in September and a rep from LP called me telling me to stop sending so many hits. That month alone, I sent 53k hits, but it's nothing compared to my 8 earlier sales(they had a bug in their script and the numbers went exponentially and suddenly it shows gazillion hits).
Now they closed my account and I sent a ticket two days ago. Any response? Nope. Usually it takes less than 12 hours for a response.
Now what? They ripped me off for a few gigs of bandwidth? I send ~100k hits/day when I can to my personal Powweb sites and they don't complain(except for vBulletin... don't ever install it on shared hosting!).
I heard that their servers can hold up massive usage, but if I had a hosting account with them would they close it just like that? This sucks. I liked the conversion rates.
Powweb needs to stop the 200$ minimum payout. I have one sale and it's stuck there... at least they can pay with paypal. Also Powweb isn't reliable to host important sites. I use it to test my scripts and my friend's site.
Forget about BlueHost. They use a crappy server to host their own web site. "You own a hosting company and you host your main web site with that?"...
Not yet, I want to see if they will respond to my ticket. I'll wait until Tuesday since I sent it on Friday. It's fun to see how those kind of companies' solve issues. I heard they have good support, but after this incident, let's see how they're gonna react!
PS. I made the 8 sales before they began overselling and I sent twice as many hits!
I don't see why they would be mad for you viewing their website, I am in the hosting business and would rather have my clients check my website multiple times per day. Unless they are low on bandwidth/don't purchase much from their provider, I don't see what logic there is to closing your account.
