You got to pay to play. Get your own server.

Also, just because the other "pretty much the exact same thing" service has similar features doesn't mean it is an equivalent service. Customer service, partner relationships (Providing free hosting to select affiliates, for example), ease of use, company responsiveness, and other intangibles go into making a business what it is.
After considering all of those things, if you still feel the 75% offer is better, then I'll second zestor. Move your hosting elsewhere and get on with life. They are already splitting sales with you 50/50 plus absorbing bandwidth costs. Trying to pressure them for more commission seems like a sleazy tactic.

You say you KNOW you could make more money, but how can that be the case? are some of your clients referred from other satisfied clients? is this product really as good? there are many other factors to take into consideration.
My main thing here is that you were making money for them, and when YOU had a problem, THEY bailed you out. Loyalty counts for a lot in my business world.
If you feel you really must try this other bunch out, then do it, run them alongside each other for a while. But in business you have to watch who you crap on when going up, because sometimes you might need them again if you fall down.

Why not leave your current site where its at marketing for company A, and then build up a new site and new revenue for company B. Get a new hosting account for B and build it up, follow the same formula as you did for company A.
This obviously may not work in every situation, and company A might end up being a little grumpy about the situation (knowing that they're giving you free hosting). But who cares, you're providing a substantial amount of their business. They'll get over a few bumps in the road.
By the way, which industry are you talking about (if you can reveal). I'm just curious what industry can afford 75% commissions. =)

Also remember to consider conversions. You are already making good money with merchant #1. Even though services are similar, if merchant #2 does not convert as well, you may not end up making any more in the long run. I agree that loyalty and support should count for something.
