Thread: Cpanel ads?

  1. #1

    Cpanel ads?

    Do any of you use the "news" part of cPanel for advertising products/services to your clients?

    I'm just curious how many people use this effective method (when there's no news to share that is).

    Not really. I don't like it and i don't think my clients will like it. So no.

    Cool. I ran several tests with some clients of mine, some of the hosts managed to increase their profit per client by well over 300% by doing it (one boosted profits by 463%!). Others it did absolutely nothing for them...

    Just curious how many others have done any testing with it.

    Psst, optimizing sales while not turning your backend into a billboard works too. Profits are important, clients are even more important though.

    If your control panel induces seizures because of the banners in it, it's time to just go back to sending spam, bottomfeeders.

    HostGator started doing this in the past (I believe they still are).

    If I remember correctly, the response to the ads were quite negative. I can't recall if it was the actual clients complaining...or the normal host bashing that goes on around here. Anyhow, I'll try to find the thread.

    Personal Opinion:
    I see enough ads already. If I had the choice between a host with ads, and a host without ads, I would choose no ads. Of course there are alot of other factors to consider when choosing a host... so that wouldn't be the deciding factor.
