Thumbs down 000webhosting.com there affiliate program is a FRAUD program - Beware!

I tried them for about a month and generated many referral sign ups but after that when i was trying to contact them they won't even reply. Then I tried using other email to contact them and pretended as a my best friend and ask about the reason why they are not responding on my emails and they just simply say that I am a scammer. I am so sad, after i made so many referrals they treated me as scammer. Or they just simply avoiding to pay my referral earnings....

But if you like them then try them and try wasting some of your time

they say you have to have $100 before they will pay you, did your referral payment reach $100?

They are scum. They allow their affiliates to spam, and that's one thing no respectable affiliate program allows.

I am also a member/affiliate of 000webhosting and i give up on their referral program because they indicate the referral as inactive and lost your referral fee even if it's more than the test period of 15 days. Though up to now my site benefit from their free web hosting.

Save yourself a huge headache and HEED the warnings you've read elsewhere about this "affiliate program". It is a TOTAL scam. I fell for the lucrative prospect of $5 per signup but now I am in the same boat as all the others.

I signed up nearly 40 customers in less than a month and waited patiently for them to finish the "verification" process. After one month (30 days) affiliates are to be paid on the first of the following month.

Today (December 21, 200 I receive an "announcement" in my affiliate home page stating the following (which others report as well):

"""Announcement: we have started to use 60 days signup verification procedure (we used 30 days signup verification system before). That is because we received lots of fraudulent signups especially from Vietnam and China and we need more time to check everything. So if you have referred user today, it will be credited in 2 months. We need these 2 months to protect us from fraudulent signups. We are sorry if we made any inconveniences for you and let us to know if you have any questions."""

FUNNY though, because I ONLY accept US traffic through google adwords and facebook ads, so there is NO POSSIBLE WAY that you were getting ANY Chinese and/or Vietnamese traffic to my referral link.

This is teh SAME tactic they use on everyone else. The thing is, this announcement was NEVER updated in their terms of service, thus making it a non-enforceable term of the affiliate promoting/payment conditions. As such the host is in breach of their contractual obligation to meet the payment deadline of January 1st if they indeed intend to hold off payment for another 30 days.

I suggest ANYONE who was scammed by this company take the time to report them to the host as well as PAYPAL so that paypal investigates and hopefully FREEZES their assets associated with their paypal account and puts a bit of hindrance at the very least on their scamming.

I also encourage anyone that has been scammed to file a formal complaint with the FBI online fraud division: http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx They are there to stop online fraud, even for just a few hundred bucks. With enough of us together, we will get the FBI's attention.

Also file a complaint at the FDC. http://www.fdc.gov

We've had a policy here at V7, for quite some time, that anyone who posts a 000webhost offer gets automatically banned. Doesn't matter how many posts they have or their reputation/iTrader. We have a zero tolerance for them.

So we ask that if anyone finds a user whos posting such things, report it.

000webhosting.com there affiliate program is a FRAUD program - I am yet to hear that they have paid some of their affiliates. They always block you in their verification process.

Lightbulb good to read this thread

Hi everyone,
I was actually making a business plan to promote 000webhosting site since i think i know the way but after reading this thread i have decided not to waste my time. They were also claiming that their servers 99% up but from my exprience it is like 70% which made me thinking to move to another free hosting since it looks like their hosting is not reliable.

A paid hosting is always reliable than a free hosting. I don't understand how this 000webhosting.com provides free hosting and how they make profit in it?
