These are very simplified compared to the rules we have held previously. They will offer you much more freedom in your thread titles and the threads you can create.
Please make sure to read and understand the new rules.
General Hosting Rules
- All general forum rules apply
- You must select [Selling] as the thread prefix
- Post2Host offers/free web hosting are to be created under giveaways or contests only
- Only a maximum of 2 topics* from a host is allowed to be created in each category, regardless of the packages offered.
- Providers may NOT recommend themselves in ANY thread (except their own) THROUGHOUT the forum
- Providers may NOT post in other providers thread
- All hosting providers must use a valid (not nulled) billing panel, have a legitimate support system (tickets, etc - not just skype or msn or email) and a proper website with TOS
- Refrain from bumping your sales topic with useless comments such as: 'Thanks for review' , 'Check your PM' , ' First post updated'. Do not bump your topic with comments 'Use ticket system' and similar. Ignoring this rule will eventually get your topic closed.
Tip: Use PM system on this forum, for users with issues, and not your topic, and use signatures to leave contact email, or link to support system
Title Rules for Web Hosting Threads
All CAPS are NOT allowed in thread titles:
50% OFF / INSANE DISCOUNTS / HOSTINGNAME.COM / RUSSIA / etc
Hosting providers MUST state the location of their server(s) within the title and post.
Generic keywords NOT allowed, as usual:
99% uptime (or similar)
... and all other similar keywords.
Special characters are NOT allowed:
Using special characters to get attention is not allowed: --== ===- /// \\\\ *** ``` ~~~ ^^^ !!! ||||| etc
Allowed. Feel free to offer these in your title and/or your sales thread
Examples, how to compose your thread title:
[Selling] YourSite.com/net - 1 Gbit VPS Linux/Windows 2008 from $1.00 (NL,USA,FR,IT,DE,LT)
[Selling] YourSite.com/net - cPanel,CloudLinux - 50 GB Space/200 GB Bandwidth - from $1.00 (NL,USA,FR,IT,DE,LT)
[Selling] YourSite.com/net - 100Mbit-10Gbit 2-100TB Bandwidth - Managed/Unmanaged - from $1.00 (NL,USA,FR,IT,DE,LT)
[Selling] YourSite.com/net - Windows/Linux RDA/RL/sBorg/VPN/SeedBox/CDN - 1Gbit 20GB HDD - from $1.00 (NL,USA,FR,IT,DE,LT)
Main idea is to have normal titles with these as mandatory:
Sellers domain in the beginning - Description of the service - Starting Price - Locations
Other Web Hosting Rules
Client Management, Billing & Support Solutions:
- Must use a legally licensed version. Nulled solutions are disallowed and are a considerable security risk.
- Must have a support system in place. IM/Skype does NOT count.
- Must provide direct link to client support portal
Your thread MUST include at least 1(ONE) plan details offered by you. You may link to your site for additional plans, but 1(ONE) plan listing is an absolute requirement.
*One for main sales, the other for special offers.
