I guess it depends on the traffic your site generates but I'm curious to know, in general, if people into affiliate marketing use dedicated server or shared hosting?

As with diversification of income streams I find it useful to diversify hosting, if one server goes down you don't want your whole income to be jeopardised.

Whether you use multiple shared hosting accounts or have multiple dedicated servers (or VPS's) is a question of economics. Factors you might consider include how many sites you have and how much time (or money) you want to spend administering servers.

I have about 40 sites on three different reseller accounts. I considered dedicated or VPS solutions but in the end the benefits do not justify the extra work/cost.

I'd rather spend my time making money.

Either way it's a hassle. I had a Win2003 VPS account with aspwebhosting(poor poor support - stay away) and they claimed my websites were eating 100% of the CPU at certain points of the day, blah blah blah. They gave me an ultimatum to buy a dedicated from them or get off their network. So, I got off their network. I did my homework at #*$! for my new provider.

My post got censored. The best site for hosting issues is #*$!.

Ok send me a note if you want the best forum I believe for doing your homework on a hosting solution.

I'm not looking for a hosting solution, thanks.
I want to know if you use a dedicated server or not, and why.
Is shared hosting enough for your affiliate marketing needs?
