I am thinking about setting up a site that will let people advertise on it for a fee (its a work in progress) do hosts mind you doing this after all you are offering their servers to advertise on. I have ways around the problem if it will upset them too much but as this was my first idea I thought I would run with it as far as possible.

If you're paying for the hosting I don't see why they'd care.

The only thing you would need to keep an eye on is if you are using large images ( banners, logos ect ) you would need to keep your eye on CPU usage and storage.

It depends what kind of advertising. If it is bulk email advertising or things like that, most host will not let you do that fearing their server IPs will be black-listed.

Certain activities piss off large groups of people, dealing with large groups of people who aren't happy with you or someone you do business with is not fun. It's either get rid of the people who are participating in activities that piss off large groups of people, or hike up the price to compensate for the headaches you have to deal with.

I agree with Joebert. You would want to read your host's privacy policy before implementing that idea.

Good luck with it.
