When to Unhost Channels on Twitch
As I said above that twitch hosting can be a great networking tool to grow on twitch.
But you must know the right way to host. Let me brief
Twitch allows you to host or unhost any channels that you want, but it’s up to you how you make the right selection.
Choosing the wrong stream channel will never give you any kind of benefits.
Here are few tips that you must know and if you are not following these tips then you must end twitch host now.
Stop Hosting Big Streamers
If you have recently started streaming on twitch or a small streamer then you might have decided to host any big streamers with high subscribers and followers.
This is just a myth as we think we may gain more followers from them. So better unhost these channels.
No, viewers are smart enough and are mostly aware of these big streamers.
So stop keeping any expectations that they will also host or raid sometime in the future as even they might not be aware that you hosted them.
Stop Hosting Irrelevant Content
This is a world of community where people or viewers like to connect with the community of their interest.
So lets you are a regular streamer of a Valorant game and while offline you host channels that stream Roblox or any music channels.
The audience would never connect, so better stop hosting such channels.
You will not get Paid for Hosting
There are many beginners who still think that they might get paid by hosting these channels.
Keep in mind when you host any channel on twitch that hosted channel will be paid if they have an affiliate or partner program.
You won’t be getting paid for hosting any channels, so better unhost channels if you are only hosting them with the intention of monetization.
You must also be aware that how you can lose a twitch affiliate by violating twitch policies.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Twitch earlier had the option to see that by how many channels you have been hosted.
But there is no such option now as per my knowledge.
But you will be always notified whenever anyone hosts you on twitch.
- There are two options where you can host someone on twitch while you are offline.
Manually go to your channel and in the chatbox type the command /host [channel name] and hit enter. In the channel, name, add the names of the channel that you want to host.
- Enable autohost on twitch and you can also add multiple channels that you want to host
Do you get money for hosting on Twitch?
No, you won’t get any money for hosting on Twitch but the channel that you host will be benefitted.
So in the future, if they host back to you as well, then you will make money.
To grow on twitch and make your carrier in streaming you must use every method that can help you to grow your audience.
In this article, you saw how to stop hosting someone on twitch and I believe that should be if you hosted any irrelevant channels or just because you know want to host any other channel.
Use this hosting and raid feature properly.
Better host some average streamers who will at least know that you hosted them.
This also makes a chance that they make host or raid you back in the future.
Let me know if you still have any doubts or questions related to twitch or streaming.
