My hosting company has sent me a dreadful warning. One of my sites has been reported with spamming complaints. They sent me the offending email. It was not my email nor from my email address. I checked out the link in the spam email and it went to one of my old products. Sure enough...there's my picture and domain name. It quickly dawned on me that an affiliate is spamming.
So, I'm hoping and praying that my domain hosting company believes my word.
Here's the questions:
1. What else should I do? They've requested that I verify that I had permission to email this person. But he's not on my list. So I can't prove anything. I didn't send the email.
2. Secondly, if I get through this mess without getting my domain name confiscated, where do you marketers suggest I host my domain name. I want to move it. I don't want my domain name held for ransom every time. I think the domain hosting company that I'm with is known for holding domain names ransom for large fees after spam complaints.
3. How do you best track affiliates and make sure they're not spamming. How do you keep a handle on this?
