    Question omg.. This host has pop-up windows..

    ohh.. This host has pop-up windows and banner ad's on their site? I didn't think web hosts would want to have pop-up ads and banners on their websites. Usually that might scare away customers, I thought.

    Thanks,
    Michael B.

    The simple fact that 4 pop-ups appeared would scare me away.

    Any website that is designed for profit that isn't content based, in my opinion, should not display advertisements.

    No popups bounced out at me, just the banner up the top of the page. Maybe I am just lucky?

    There is only one page, with a few pop-ups. Who would even think about joining that? Where is the support? The Contacts? The Control Panel?

    Looks like someone just set something up real quick for some money.

    AAAAAgh!!
    I actually put in my restricted zone, any site that gives me cookies without good reason, or any site that contains pop ups. Plus I add it to my 0click database, (which blocks all transmissions. The pop up window will now pop up a 404) plus enter it in my POW list. (kills pop ups as they pop up)
    DANG DANG! DANG!!
    I know ***** ripped off everybody else, but they wouldn't do it to me.

    Im guessing he ripped off another site and forgot to remove pertenant HTML source. Either that or he is trying to fool the search engines, which really doesnt seem too intelligent. However, neither are the popups.

    Hmm maybe it's just a traffic generator site. They own the domain why not put it to use. Since web hosting is one of the internets leading markets they use that for search engine placement. Thus they get money from the banners. A wasted domain being put to use I suppose.
