Hi, I'm very new to Affiliate Marketing. I've been sucking in information for the last two weeks, bought a domain and set it up with the hostgator.com baby plan. I'm on the verge of trying my luck with my first cpa-campaigns and I've been planning to use paid traffic directed to sites on my hostgator account. Right now I wanted to get familiar with Prosper 202 but I noticed that Hostgator does not support it with anything but VPS Level 5+ or a dedicated server. After browsing several forums on the issue, I have encountered several statements like "Installing Prosper on shared hosting just shows how little you care about making money online." or "Never use shared hosting with paid traffic. You will lose traffic and money on your campaigns." So, what's the general problem with shared hosting and paid traffic? (Hostgator's restrictions when it comes to Prosper 202 are apperantly linked to security- and performance issues.) I hope, someone could clear that up for me. Thanks in advance.
