I tried to install prosper 202 through my hostgator cpanel however was advised by one of the staff that they wouldn't allow it and i should have a dedicated server or VPS in place in order to install. Do all of you guys have dedicated or VPs in place for your PROSPER 202?

    Hi, not at all. All you need is a domain and a web hosting. I am using hostgator as well. see this thread. http://www.warriorforum.com/ad-netwo...-dont-get.html

    I've had prosper installed on a shared hostgator account before, they just need to make a small adjustment on their end

      What is it, without that it won't get installed?

        I had it installed on shared hosting with Hostgator just recently without any problems. I've since switched to VPS which has paid for itself with the higher conversions from increased speed.

  • There are many reasons to not host Prosper202 on shared hosting, all of them boil down to speed and money.

    Just keep this in mind: People abandon slow sites and links.

    Here're some interesting stats from research done on the importance of speed.

    "Latency matters. Amazon found every 100ms of latency cost them 1% in sales. Google found an extra .5 seconds in search page generation time dropped traffic by 20%. A broker could lose $4 million in revenues per millisecond if their electronic trading platform is 5 milliseconds behind the competition."
    That means a 10% drop in Amazon's sales for every second of delay or slowness. You can read a whole post I did with tips on how to speed things up. Money Loves Speed

    I'm sure you've all experienced buying 100 clicks from some traffic source and only seeing 80-90 in your tracking software or on the network (if you are direct linking). Of course, there are lots of reasons for this, but slow servers and unoptimized pages have a lot to do with it.

    It may sound like a good idea to be cheap on your hosting, but look at your list campaigns and see how many of them would be profitable or more profitable with an extra 10-20% increase in conversions.

    I've been obsessed with making things faster for a while now, which is why 80-90% of my focus when I'm upgrading Prosper202 or Tracking202 is not on adding new features, but in making it blazing fast. Because at the end of the day, these change almost always means an automatic bump in your conversion rates without having to do anything except upgrade.

    For example, I developed and built our proprietary new BlazerCache Optimized Redirect Technology for the Cloud hosted Tracking202 which is up to 548x faster and more responsive than the system you have in the current version of Prosper202. (Benchmarking Our New BlazerCache Optimized Redirect Technology) Unfortunately, this is something that will never make it into the open source Prosper202.

    I'm not going to mention names, but it's not cool to use huge chunks of my code, rebrand, and commercially sell it as another tracker without attribution or a licensing agreement.

    The Cloud hosted Tracking202 has multiple servers dedicated to doing just one thing. For example, there's a server for the web interface that you login to. One for the main database and one for the off site replicated database (this makes sure that if anything happens to the main database, it automatically switches to the backup one for minimal downtime), finally there's a dynamic number of ClickServers sitting behind a load balancer to manage the redirects. (This changes based on load on ClickServer). I'm already in the process of setting up dedicated global ClickServers, so for example when a click it generated in Europe, it will be sent to a ClickServer in Europe instead of one in the US.

    Ideally if you are super serious, and generating a ton of cash from your campaigns paying someone to build and manage a setup like this ^^^ will do wonders for you. For the average person, this is overkill especially on the costs, it's more economical to go the SaaS route if you want access to something like this. Or get a good VPS or Dedicated server. You can go with any reliable hosting company for this, but if you want extra valued added perks from a host that understands affiliates and Prosper202, there only one choice. Read more about that here (Prosper202 + Shared Hosting = Epic Fail)

    Anyway, I hope this long post has been helpful. I'll end this with a link to a great resource from yahoo that has a whole lot of other tips to speed up your sites. Best Practices for Speeding Up Your Web Site
