Advertising in GitHub README?

Hello GitHub Community Folks,

I just became a “Vultr partner” and included some referral links to Vultr in the README of the project most associated with the remote isolated cloud browser product for which I offer deployments on their infrastructure.

If you check that out and let me know if there are any problems with using advertising / referral links on GitHub in this way (because, essentially, you guys pay for the hosting of the pages serving these) I totally get it, and if you let me know I will happily remove them. No worries!

Anyway, I’m sure you’re super busy, so I get it if you’re too busy to reply just thank you for reading this far!!

Thanks in advance,


PS - I found this link but I couldn’t make heads or tails of it nor decide one way or the other what the issue was or whether the advertising would be allowed so that’s why I’m asking here.

I’m not a lawyer nor employee/representative of GitHub.

Hi @i5ik and welcome to the Community! In general, what you’re doing shouldn’t be a problem at all. Make sure not to turn your entire project into a spam and ads repository, but that doesn’t seem to be the case at all.
