    I uploaded the new 9.x version to one of my servers to find that the reference section went to sites with competators adds placed on their pages. Can just this section somehow be removed from the new version without to much trouble. Its really not that much help and probably was a bad feature to include unless your getting paid big bucks to put it in.

    cPanel 9.0.0-R44

    The version is cPanel 9.0.0-R44

    I loaded it to my test server before installing it on the production servers. You click on the links in the section I was talking about and every site you go to has a banner add for some hosting company on their front page. It will be the first thing my clients see when they look for help.

    Go on, have a guess
    As thaphantom asked, where do you see this? I've scoured WHM and cPanel and don't see what you're talking about. If you can give us a bit more detail on where you see this, it would help.

    You sound like one of my customers seeking support -- not enough info provided for me to help you. How about some details about where this is?

    My gut feeling is, he may be talking about the addons. The sites of some of those addons (like invisionboard and php-nuke) regularly display web hosting ads.

    In fact, a link at the bottom of invisionboard takes you straight to their web hosting service, invisionpower. By their licence, you are only allowed to use the board for free if you agree to publish their hosting link.
