How TO Install And Setup Gems

Ruby Gems are collections of functions that allow you to perform tasks in Ruby. You will need to install a Gem before you can use it inside a Ruby program.

Note: Current cpanel version has some bugs or issue with Gem Setup. We may sometimes need to configure Gems and Rails from command line.


Affiliate Program at Updated.

We have received many requests to have the tier payout redone. I am happy to announce that we have listened to our affiliates and have rolled out a new payout schedule. Here are the details:

1-5 referrals/month $35.00
6-10 referrals/month $50.00
11+ referrals/month $75.00

It is now possible to receive $75 per referral when you send 11+ sign ups.. down from 50+. Most of our affiliates send an average of 10-20 referrals per month and this will more than double their payouts. That is $600 more if you were sending 15 referrals a month!
